Manicure Monday - Christmas Ornament Nail Art!

"O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, How lovely are thy branches" - what am I going to do when I have to find another back drop rather than use my Christmas tree anymore?! We are just over a week away from Christmas and I couldn't be more excited! 

Manicure Monday - Christmas Ornament Nail Art!

One of my favorite Christmas past times is decorating the tree - we always get a real tree and there is just something about the smell and getting the decorations all set up that just gets me in the Christmas spirit!

Five on Sunday - December 16, 2018

This post usually starts by wishing you all a happy weekend; but, it's already Sunday! Where did the time go?! It's so close to Christmas and it is such a busy time! So, I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was busy; but, good!


Last weekend was our annual Girl's Christmas Dinner gift exchange and we always draw names for gifts! It's always such a fun surprise! I think I'm super easy to shop for, so I always get amazing gifts every year! This year I got a cat trinket tray (or spoon rest), foil masks, bath bombs, and a homemade sugar scrub!

Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette - Swatches, Makeup Look and Review!

Oh look, another mini Natasha Denona - I have been such a fan of the other 2 mini palettes that I've tried, so I picked this one up right away too! 

Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette

Earlier in the year, I tried both the Natasha Denona Mini Sunset eyeshadow palette and the Mini Lila eyeshadow palette and I was really impressed with both of them! I thought they performed well and the shadows looked amazing on! (Both also made Monthly Favorites over this year).
