Today I Love…..Orange Lips and Liptember!

6 Sep

I love fresh orange juice……except I hate squeezing it myself!

We have a local supermarket called Leo’s that squeezes the best fresh OJ on site! Every time I shop there, one of their lovely fresh litre bottles somehow finds its way to the cash register with me!

At the moment, I am on the hunt for something else that is orange……but I just can’t quite seem to put my finger on a good one!

Oh, I’m not talking about orange juice anymore…..but the elusive orange lipstick, yes not a man or a type of chocolate either – behave now!

Maybe this one?

Or this?

Nope…..

Nope…..

Nope…..

Ooh maybe this one that I got my hands on?

Nope……

Have YOU found a great Orange lippy?

If so, PLEASE let me know about it below!!!

Today I love….A $1000 Ice Cream Sundae

28 Sep

You wouldn’t read about it…..I was telling my Mr. Big just the other night about this lovely little (well HUGE actually) concoction and ta da!!

One of my top 100 fave celebs (another post on the way about this folks!) a la Kandee Johnson went to the restaurant that serves this obscene dish!!!

Golden Opulence sundae

$1,000

First dates looking to impress or sweet-sixteens in search of something special strike gold, quite literally, at Serendipity 3, the legendary New York City eatery where celebs are often spotted. The restaurant’s golden opulence sundae is covered in 23-carat edible gold leaf and is also rich in flavor thanks to Tahitian vanilla ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla beans and chunks of rare Chuao chocolate from Venezuela.

In lieu of Hershey’s syrup and a maraschino cherry, this sundae is drizzled with one of the world’s most expensive chocolates, from Amedei Porcelana, and then adorned with candied fruits, gold covered almonds, chocolate truffles and marzipan cherries.

The dish also features a dollop of sweet Grande Passion caviar served with a mother of pearl spoon and a gilded sugar flower. The whole shebang looks as good as it tastes, served in a Baccarat crystal goblet (yours to keep) with an 18-carat gold spoon (not included).

Today I love….Dodgy pic of the Shellac chip

27 Jul

ALERT, ALERT, ALERT!!!

We have a chip people!!!

In the apparently un-chippable hybrid nail colour!!!

I will admit I am definitely not the nicest person to my fingernails….they have to function….and I make them perform!! They break and hence they chip…this I fear, is the cause of THE chip! I can see a little dent in my fingernail where the chip lies…so I do believe it is my fingernails’ fault, not the polish!

We have definite regrowth after only 4 days (wow, my nails grow quickly!) almost 3-4mm by my count….

The hands are a little itchy, but the rest of my eczema has also flared up because I have decreased my medication lately so….there may be other reasons to observe here….

At the moment I don’t care because I love, love, love my new nails….I haven’t had many compliments but people probably assume I have just spent an hour that morning applying my nail polish because it always looks so fresh and so new!

My apologies for the dodgy photo – naturally when I went to take some pics of my nails, the battery in the camera went flat and I have no replacement on hand!

Lo and behold the dodgy pic of the chip….oh, and the regrowth! Check it out!!!

Let me know what you think lovely people!!!

Today I love….Shellac Photos and Update….

23 Jul

Well I hate to say it folks, I love, love, love my new fingernails but my hands are itchy!!!

Now let’s remember this could be for  number of reasons….

I gave my cat some love tonite (I am allergic to cats – yeah I know = silly me! That’s another story), the leftover powder/chemicals on the nail salon table that has got on to my hands and not washing my hands straight after the treatment to remove any of this, stress (always a factor!)….

Let’s not get too excited now….let’s just all cross our fingers and our toes that all will be fine!!!

I’ll keep you posted!!!

Doncha just love, love, love my colour???!!!

Here is my dodgy picture of my new CND Shellac Nails! It took 40 mins….in and out girls!!! Get on it NOW!!!

Today I love….Creative Nail Design Shellac

21 Jul

Everybody say HOORAY for Creative Nail!!!

I have worked for and used Creative Nail a very long time ago and they were always a quality, long lasting and easy to apply product.

Now they have set the benchmark way above all the other nail polishes out on the market….the Creative Nail Shellac goes on like polish, dries under a UV lamp and then lasts for 2 weeks – flawlessly!!! No chips, no smudges and best of all the polish is ‘3 free’ – this is THE best news for me as now I can finally paint my nails again! (eczema = can’t wear nail polish) – so Creative Nail Design – today I super dooper LOVE, LOVE, LOVE you!!!

I am getting my first application on Saturday so stay tuned for the pics and my review of the product folks….which colour should I get though!!!???

“Like any quality polish application, the Shellac system features a Base Coat, Color Coat and Top Coat. Together with a UV Lamp, they comprise the breakthrough in resilient color that remains flawless for two weeks and removes in 10 minutes.

“Better science makes better products. The patent-pending formulation of solvents, monomers and polymers is why Shellac™ goes on like polish, wears like gel and removes in minutes. Plus it’s hypo-allergenic and 3-FREE… containing no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP.”

“Shellac—stands miles apart from others in the market with the science and testing to back it up. Nail Professionals that participated in more than 4 years of controlled, blind testing said unanimously—there’s no comparison—not even close!”
