Lately I have been obsessing over my hair. It has gotten really long and healthy so I am more prone to play with it using heat styling and other variations of styling without the guilt. Even though I am using heat and other styling techniques I am using all sorts of treatments and serums to help keep it long and healthy. I have been LOVING the Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum.
Lisa Hoffman Beauty is making another scent-sational appearance on HSN on November 27th & 29th! Joan Sutton, the brand’s Vice President of Product Development, will be live at8am and 4pm EST on Tuesday November 27th and at 4am, 1pm and 8pm EST on Thursday November 29th to present Lisa’s new Eau de Parfum collection along with her celebrity-favorite Fragrance Jewelry collection for unbelievable pricing special for the holiday season.

I feel that being a woman means you are a jack of all trades. You are responsible for
a good bit everything that takes place in your home: cooking, cleaning, bills, health & wellness, etc. That also extends to knowing everything there is to know about grooming. Some of us didn't go to cosmetology school but as women are expected to keep ourselves well groomed and beautiful. Maybe not by others, but I expect that from myself, can you agree? Sometimes we need shortcuts in able to do ALL of the great things we do. The GHD Gold Professional 1" Styler is a wonderful tool that will have your hair looking fabulous in no time. This is the limited edition Pink Cherry Blossom.

I have been looking forward to Thanksgiving since the day I found out I was pregnant and became more ferociously hungry than a newborn vampire. HAHA (WTF? IDK why this strikes me as a valid, funny statement. I am going to chock it up to pregnancy brains!) Anyway. I had very little time to get ready and I have been breaking out quite a bit lately so I spent the majority of my makeup time on my complexion.

A girl loves nail polish! And Deborah Lippmann polishes are the Cadillac's of the polish world. They are always gorgeous whether they are glittery, chrome, or creme. Her Black Friday Sale great.
Deborah Lippmann has a coupon code for 20% off a purchase of $75. Basically it equals one free bottle of polish. I would recommend buying a few of her value sets so you are getting the most bang for your buck. The coupon code is "THANKS2012"!
Bath and Body Works is a company that is notorious for their sales throughout the year, but their Black Friday sales are even more plentiful!
I don't remember this being a candle they have had before (I could be wrong), but this White Barn Christmas 3-wick candle is on their website already for $10 and will be in stores on Friday for $10. I believe it is limited edition and may only be available this weekend only.
In addition to the White Barn Christmas candles, ALL of their 3-wick candles are 2 for $20 right now. When they have these on sale I always stock up because that is basically half price!
The Wallflower 2 packs are only $5 right now and they usually retail for $12.50. The individual Wallflowers are on sale: 6 for $24.
Their Signature Body Care is Buy 3 Get 3, and online they have some other exclusive scents.
Anti-Bacterial Handsoap is 4 for $15 or 6 for $20.
Right now they have their holiday Bathtubs that retail for over $60 on sale for $32.50.
Lots of additional products are on sale for 50% off.
Last but not least they have a great tote filled with products that retails for over $100 on sale for $20 when you spend $40 or more.
Also I would like to mention that if you are shopping online you can use Ebates for an additional % of cashback and all of the latest discount codes. I actually took advantage of a 20% off code this morning that I wouldn't have known about had it not been for Ebates! If you don't have an account CLICK HERE to sign up.
I never get out in the crowds on Black Friday but I always stalk sales online. This year Sephora will have a lot of $10 deals.
Some are more interesting than others, but to be fair, there is something that everyone will want. I see a few things myself. :) I may try and get out in the crowds for some of these... Or shop online. :) Hope this helps you with some of your holiday shopping!
Hello! I am going to be sharing some Black Friday sales today and this is a great one. Allure puts out these Beauty Boxes quite often and tomorrow their holiday box launches.
It looks to be filled with all sorts of products for hair, lips and nails. :) It starts tomorrow (12:01am EST) so get it fast! They always sell out!

I have recently been using an abundance of hot tools to style my hair. I loved another curling wand by Remington so much that I decided to pick up this Keratin Therapy 1 1/2" Curling Wand.

Skincare can become pretty complicated. You start out just wanting to make sure your skin gets the cleanest it can get and you end up having 20 different products, all with their own purpose. Sometimes simple is better. Babor Cleansing Gel and Tonic is a 2 in 1 product that can help you simplify your routine.

Last year I missed out on the Chanel's Holiday Collection as a whole and specifcally I regret not picking up the Topkapi quad. This year I was determined not to miss out on the Harmonie Du Soir quad. It has the same round button look imprint on it and the colors were completely mesmerizing. All 4 colors in the quad are ones I would buy on their own and completely drool-worthy.

Hello everyone. I have put together a few things that I want really bad right now. I am to the point where I am about to break on a few of them and others are just out of reach.
First off, I want the IKEA Alex drawers. I need a different form of organization for my cosmetics and this seems like it could really be the ticket. They are super affordable but I don't live near an IKEA. A few months back I attempted to purchase it and have it shipped but they wanted over $200 JUST IN SHIPPING FEES. So that is a no-go. Next time I am in Orlando or Atlanta I am getting this bad boy!
The Kevyn Aucoin brand is coming out with a new skin product. I believe the name is The Sensual Skin Balm Tint. I may not be completely accurate on the name, but I know I want it. I don't even have to test it to know I want it. I am in love with the Sensual Skin Enhaner (my shade is SX05). I can't imagine this product would be bad.
There are quite a few Chanel goodies I am lusting after at the moment. One being the Notorious Sculpting Veil and the other being the Holiday 2012 quad. Every time I go to a counter and ask my ladies about the Notorious product they look at me like a deer in the headlights. I sort of get irritated when I get that look from beauty consultants... I probably shouldn't, but I do. I would love to be an SA at a Chanel or Dior counter and I know I would be gooooooood at it and for these ladies not to know what is going on with their own brand surprises me.
Last but not least is the Canon EOS Rebel t3i. It is beauty related in the sense that I want to take better, more clear pictures for this site. I think that my camera does an okay job, but it is pretty old and this one has all the bells and whistles. I feel that if I can make a regular OLD point and shoot take decent photos then I can blow you away with this! :) It's price tag is a hefty one though, so I am holding off for now.
What is on your wish list at the moment? Let me know in the comments below!

Hello loves! I wanted to talk to do a recap of my makeup looks in the recent months. Most of these looks were done before I knew I was pregnant but they were all done while I was pregnant. And you can really see the "glow" grow. I also want to touch on a subject that has been difficult for me my entire life. I have never been thin/skinny/lean by any means... I had just hit a 40 lb weight loss when I found out I was pregnant. Now I am in the process of gaining weight, which sort of makes me upset... My body is transforming into an incubator, but I have never been more confident in my beauty.

It has been months since I actually chose to have my Julep Maven box shipped. There was a new option to choose from this go round and it was the Maven's Choice Box. This box was voted on by Julep Mavens and curated from our votes. With tomorrow (Tuesday) being voting day here in the US I thought this was very fitting to be posted up and shared! :)

Wow... this feels like strange territory! It has been so long since I did a Favorites post... Like June or maybe even further back. I have been sort of uninspired recently to do favorites because
sometimes most of the time it ends up being a lot of the products that I reviewed that month and I hate to reiterate the same points. This month's favorites was all about rediscoveries! I took these photos with my iPhone because my camera's battery died RIGHT as I went to snap the first picture! Ready?
