Your Razor’s New Best Friend!

25 Oct

I have been using, and loving Yorz razor wraps for the last two weeks. In my home, my wife and I use 4 razors at a time(2 each). To avoid mix-ups, we literally have to write our initials on the handle of the razors with a black sharpie marker. I am happy to say that writing our initials on the handle is now a thing of the past. With Yorz razor wraps, we choose our own colors and there is no more confusion.  The soft  silicone wraps come in 7 colors and are super comfortable to hold, which leads me to my next thought. No more nicks!!! I’ve cut myself so many times when the razor has slipped out of my soapy hand in the past. These wraps are so handy, they even have a soft hooked end that can hang on most shower caddies, letting excess water drip off keeping your razor dry and extending the life of the blades. Nobody likes a wet, rusty razor. These are so perfect for households that have people sharing showers- College dorms, roommate situations, families etc. With these wraps, you will never wonder which razor is YORZ again.

Yorz Razor wraps fit any disposable razor with a straight handle and retail for $4.99 each or $11.99 for a 3 pack.

Fall Lipstick Must have

2 Oct

Every year myself and countless bloggers compile lists of our favorite Fall lipsticks to share with the world. Every year the same lipstick is on my list. I’m sharing only one color this year because I feel so strongly that it should be a part of every woman’s Fall lip color collection. Without a doubt, Mac Rebel is my go-to, must have Fall lip color.mac

The beautiful rich berry/wine hue is gorgeous and looks amazing on all skin tones as well.  I can’t even remember what tube I’m on at this point- I literally wear it all Fall long and into Winter as well. I love love love this color! What are your favorite fall lippies?

My Favorite Everyday Nail Color!

12 Jul

I’ve found the perfect year round everyday nail color. It’s a pinkish clear hue by Essie called Sugar Daddy. I LOVE this color. It’s almost clear but very light pink at the same time. It basically goes with everything and makes your nails look super healthy. I’m on my 2nd bottle and I never go through nail polish that fast. I was explaining it to a friend as the perfect color for everyone, from the color enthusiasts to the non polish wearing. It compliments all skin tones as well. I recommend you pick a bottle up to add to your collection!

Fall Nail Color Favorites!

21 Nov

I love beautiful rich dark shades for fall and winter and thought I’d share my favorites colors with you.  They are both by Essie, but most polish companies make these shades or similar shades. I do favor Essie when it comes to darker shades because their formulas are super thick and don’t streak.

Stylenomics is a deep green shade.

Carry On is a dark deep burgundy wine shade.

Heaven In a Bottle! I Am Obsessed!

7 Sep

Let me start by saying that I am not one to buy a lot of different perfumes. I own about 6 total but have steadily used Versace Red Jeans and Vera Wang Princess for the last 8 years. I never thought I would add a third fragrance to my main lineup until I smelled Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium! WOW!!!! It is as intoxicating as a perfume can get. The scent is unique and bold, yet warm and sweet. It has vanilla, floral and coffee notes with some musky undertones. (not overpowering musk though) I think of it as the perfect blend of spicy and sweet and will be wearing it throughout Fall & Winter.

Side note: Black opium is an Eau de parfum so a little goes a long way.

Black Opium comes in 4 sizes ranging in price from $25-$115.

How gorgeous is that bottle? Also available in a blinged out version ($300) if you’re feeling really fancy.

Sephora has announced that they will be launching a monthly subscription beauty box that will directly compete with Birch Box.  Birch box came on the beauty scene in 2010 and has been an industry leader since.  Sephora is looking to cash in on the popular monthly subscription box services that are gaining in popularity.  There are boxes for just about everything from your dog (Bark Box)  to your inner Zen (Mindfulness Box). Sephora’s beauty box called “Play” will launch in Boston, Columbus and Cincinatti Ohio in September with more cities to follow in 2016.  The subscription will cost $10 per month and is expected to include 5 deluxe sized samples of beauty products.

Do you subscribe to Birch box? Will you make the switch or subscribe to both?
