I love that these cute China Glaze Holiday 2013 Gift Sets come with nail lacquers and a cute accessory….I’m all girl when it comes to stuff like this so the fact I can get a little chain purse or a compact mirror with three polishes makes me squee a little. Since I’m not really a BIG nail girl the accessories have me going, “awwwwww!”.
Squee with me? I dunno extras always thrill me. I was that kid (and THAT adult) who got excited about the toy in the cereal box even if it was corny as hell!
Let’s face it pretty highlighters are as traditional to Christmas as candy canes! And the Marc Jacobs Beauty Lightshow Luminizing Powder ($59) is a stunning creation.
Question do I need another pretty highlighter to just stare at?
Ah hell that’s a stupid question of course I do!
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Ooky Perfume Oil is one of several new Halloweenie Perfume Oils that are available for a limited time from the dear old Lab. Ooky originates from the British slang for unpleasant, off, weird, unusual but Ooky Perfume Oil is anything but!
It’s pumpkin and spice and everything nice about the Fall! If there was every a scent to embody Fall it would be Ooky (oh wait, I say that about all the foody-like perfume oils from the Lab don’t I?).
We were up at stupid o’clock on Saturday to hit up the orchards and do some apple picking. The orchard is a two hour drive away so at the butt crack of dawn we were on the road and a little exhausted by the time 11ish rolled around but at least we had apples to last us through the zombie apocalypse.
Actually, crazy but true, I make apple butter. I burn boiling water but one thing I can make is damn good apple butter!
Needless to say we were hungry after our adventures so we hit up Cracker Barrel which is a novelty in itself since we don’t really have it around our area. I absolutely adore the fact that Cracker Barrel has a little country store right in the waiting area. So even if you’re starving and feeling like you’re about to die if you don’t get some waffles and eggs in your stomach immediately you won’t mind the long wait for a table on a busy Saturday morning because you’ll be wandering aimlessly around their little store as you wait for your table! They have cute little bits and bobs, old time candy (holler at me peanut chews), and really unique little finds even beauty ones in some cases.
Which brings me to my purchase of Dionis Peppermint Hand Cream!
Dior Diorific Vernis Nail Polish ($26) returns for Holiday 2013 in two new limited edition shades released with the Dior Holiday 2013 Collection. One of which is the stunning Minuit. Have I ever told you of my slight obsession with golden grape shades?
Dior Diorific Minuit Vernis Nail Polish is the perfect golden sparkling plummy grape!
It’s rather delicious.
Take a look!
