I love OPI nail polish! The quality is great, my nail shop usually has the matching gel color I need, and the best part is the cool names they come up with for their nail polish colors!  All the names for the colors in Kerry Washington’s DC Collection are related to Washington DC and the show Scandal, so cute!  I found this blog called Valiantly Varnished that featured all the colors, names, and details about the collection pictured above, here. I definitely plan to try a few more colors this season.

Speaking of Kerry Washington… Scandal is coming back in January!  Are you going to watch? I was a really big fan when the show first came out but now… not as much. Although I must say, the trailer for the premier looks pretty good!  Who knows, it may be a good distraction from all the “real politics” these days!

If nothing else, I want to watch and see what Olivia is wearing, I love her style!  I even have a coat I call my Olivia Pope coat, LOL!  More details about my coat and outfit are in my previous post, here.



Well, I hope I have given you some ideas for cool fall/winter nail colors to try. This color is definitely perfect for the holiday season!

Stay busy being fabulous,

Holiday Home Tour 2016- Great Decorating Ideas!

Holiday Home Tour Video

Time to deck the halls for the holidays!  For years I looked forward to shopping for the perfect tree with the kids, baking cookies for Santa, and decorating the house for the holidays. Now that the kids are grown, I pull out my artificial tree and call it a day!  The best part is I can start decorating whenever I want! Personally, I like to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving while everyone is out Black Friday shopping!

I usually change my color scheme about once every few years and this year I decided to go back to a very traditional look after several years of my sliver winter wonderland theme. To get ideas on a color scheme or theme, I like to go to the higher end stores like Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, and West Elm first. Then I head to Big Lots and other discount stores to find the same look for less!  Checkout my holiday home tour video for decorating ideas to get that Pottery Barn holiday look on a Big Lots budget, LOL! Enjoy!

Stay busy being fabulous,

My Natural Hair Journey Year One Update!

A look back at my natural hair journey!

It is hard to believe that it has been a little over a year since my big chop on August 30, 2015! There have been a lot of fears, tears, and twists (literally) along the way. Sometimes when I need a little motivation to keep up my hair routine, I take a look at my pictures and I am encouraged by the growth and improvement in the health of my hair. I found this picture of my hair a few months before I decided to cut it off! Continue reading
