Truffle by LVX, Calorie-Free Sweetness.

The most delicious Truffle I've ever.... worn! Earthy and neutral, it features brown and gray undertones. Bottom line: But this shade. It is not only right n trend, it will be a seasonless addition to your collection and I promise you will wear it more often then you think. This is that yummy shade you wear when you want a polished look but you don't want the polish to be the star of the show.

It took only 2 coats for mochalicious perfection. This was a slightly thicker lacquer than other LVX varnishes that I have used. No worries, I was able to finish my manicure with no trouble. It applied evenly, leveled quickly and after 4 days, only 3 nails are chipped. I'll say that's pretty bad ass for a nail polish! Vegan, 5-Free and amazing, I rate Truffle a coveted 5 out of 5 stars.

Let's talk Lingerie. A Victoria's Secret haul.

Why the sudden insurgence of lingerie on my Instagram account? Simple. Women are beautiful. I buy lingerie for me, not for him. I buy it to make me feel beautiful, to make me feel sexy, to make me feel glamorous. He benefits from my heightened self-confidence while I benefit from his awareness. Lingerie is a multibillion dollar sector and clearly we don't talk enough about our unmentionables. Why not? The garments that we display in our haul videos only look as good as the pieces we are wearing underneath. Long overdue are the conversations that move us from beautiful to sexy. I'm ready to start talking. Are you?

GingerChi Nail Repair Serum Review

I have found a new brand and I am in love with their products. GingerChi was running an amazing GWP during Valentines Day and I wanted to get my hands on the Nail Repair Serumso I pounced!

Clear in colour, this light weight oil is made of hemp, sesame and vitamin E with essential oils of fresh ginger, lavender, grapefruit, tea tree and Rosemary. For an oil, it is non-greasy and absorbs very quickly. The vessel, constructed of brown glass, protects the integrity of the oils and you should store this is a cool dry place, not a steamy bathroom. The brush is very stiff allowing you to apply the oil directly to the cuticle. Lightly scented, the Repair Serum can be massaged into the skin around your fingers extending the moisturizing benefits. Apply to cuticles and bare nails or to cuticles after nails have been painted and lacquer has cured; do not apply to your nail underneath polish or the lacquer will not stick. Paraben, petroleum, mineral oil and artificial color free and never ever tes…

An Anthropologie and Banana Republic haul.

I always look forward to my 15% off birthday coupon from Anthropologie. While I generally use it on a cart full of clearance merchandise or an awesome something something for my house, I couldn't really find anything to buy after my gluttonous Black Friday haul. But at the 11th hour I came across the Tamtam Peep-Toesby Seychelles. In Silver, they have a dusty, jaded mint heel with an upper that is more silvery bronze than pure silver. The photo above is a perfect representation. Retailing for $100, I applied my 15% off coupon bringing these bad boys to $85. Thanks, Mom! The Tamtam Peep-Toes are lightweight and perfect to transition from Winter to Spring and will be BFFs will jeans and skirts alike.

Then there was the matter of that $100 GAP giftcard I was telling you about HERE. I haven't been too inspired by GAP clothes lately so I've been hanging on to it, knowing my time would come to pounce and boy did it ever!
