I love getting my nails done – it’s super relaxing! But, with my busy schedule, it’s really hard to make time to go to the spa (…considering, I’m still trying to find the time to go to the gym!)
So to get a great manicure and pedicure at home in minutes, you’re going to want to follow these two easy steps:
STEP ONE: Exfoliate and Moisturize
If you’re not too sure what exfoliating does, it removes dead skin cells that lye on the surface of your skin, and if not removed, it will leave your skin dry, rough and dull looking – so it’s super important to exfoliate before any manicure and pedicure.
Moisturizing the skin afterwards with a good lotion is a great way to lock in moisture, leaving your skin silky smooth.
I just tried OPI Manicure Pedicure Cucumber Scrub and Massage, and I absolutely fell in love! Not only did the scrub and massage leave my skin feeling like butter, it smelt amazing! With natural sugar crystals, antioxidant pineapple and soothing cucumber extract, I really felt like I brought the spa to my bathtub! And it honestly feels amazing! aaaaahhhh…
STEP TWO: Nail Polish
Before I begin any nail polish application, I always use a good base coat. My new favourite base coat on the market right now is OPI Start to Finish, it’s a base coat, top coat and nail strengthener all in one. And now it comes in a Formaldehyde-Free formula that is great for sensitive nails – like mine!! Yiippee!
Next, I apply my nail polish. I very rarely apply the same colour to both my hands and feet. I like to use darker colours (like OPI: Lunch at the Delhi) on my toes
and very light, pretty colours (like: OPI: Get Me To The Taj On Time) on my hands.
And that’s it! A spa manicure and pedicure from the comfort of your home in just minutes!
And, Ladies, don’t forget to wake.up & make.up!

Ladies, let me introduce you to the BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium 6″ Mini Flat Iron!
Not only is this the cutest and smallest flat iron I have ever seen! It also works amazing! (Who new something so small would work so great!)
The Nano Titanium is truly the size of my hand and heats up in under one minute, which is perfect for traveling and styling on the go!
And not only does it style great, it’s also perfect for straightening your bangs, because it’s small enough to reach even the shortest hair, and I love that!
But, the best part is that it sells for $28.99 at BeautyChoice.com – which is a great online retail store, selling top of the line, beauty related products at a great price! (Thanks BeautyChoice for sending me this great product!)
And Ladies, don’t forget to wake.up & make.up!

As you know I am always on the look out for the next best mascara! Because regardless of the occassion, mascara is one product a women should never leave home without! (My mom always say’s that if she doesn’t wear mascara, she’ll look like a “plucked chicken”…I swear she used those exact words! lol!)
So, the other day I received a brand NEW product from Maybelline New York, called: The Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara. I was so excited to try it, because not only did it look great in it’s bright yellow packaging, but it also said that it was going to make my lashes 9X the volume in just one coat!
So I decided to put it to the test – and let me tell you, it definitely measured up! My lashes looked amazing in just a few seconds!
This mascara has the perfect ‘volumizing’ MegaBrush and is made with collagen (a unique formula) which helps to make the lashes look plump and full! And the best part, it has a suggested retail price of $7.99!!
A definite Makeup Must Have!! I would love to hear what you think of this mascara!!! Yiippee!!
