Autumn Nails

Now that it's October I find myself vibing Autumn hues for my nails. I finally painted my nails a gorgeous deep brown the other day while waiting to meet one of my new youth that I will be working with. I found the shade at the Dollar Tree. It was OPI, so naturally I snagged every color that was available in the store even though it was from the 2014 holiday collection. The shades I brought home will be a great addition to my nail polish collection and will work perfect for the fall and winter months. Here are the hues that I am vibing right now:

- GOLD -

I absolutely adore gold nail polish. I have many different shades but I am loving this lighter shade by Wet N' Wild. It's so pretty and I love the fact that it only costs $2.

- NAVY - 

I have never really been a fan of blue nail polish but I am loving this gorgeous navy hue that O.P.I. has. Its dark but such a pretty color and I am excited to try this color out.

- OLIVE -

This season I am all about olive. I just find the color to be so pretty and I can't wait to try this color on my nails.

- RED -

Red nails are a classic. I always paint my nails this color. It's a color that will never go out of style. I have about ten different red polishes and I just feel extra classy when I have red on my nails.

- BURGUNDY/WINE -

Y'all, burgundy and wine are my two favorite colors. I can not buy anything in these two colors. Hands down, one of my go to nail colors for Autumn. It's a deep hue that compliments my complexion and I just love this color. Sinful has a variety of beautiful shades for $2. 


- BRONZE -

Another one of my favorite colors. I wear a similar shade like this one year round and I like that it has a golden tint to it. It's a beautiful shade.

- BROWN -

I bought my first brown nail polish in September and I am a big fan. I don't know why I never used this color before but I am feeling it. 

- BLACK -

I have one black polish in my collection. I'm kind of excited to try a new hue, especially if it has glitter in it. I will be hitting up my local Target and Wal-Mart to find this pretty shade by Maybelline.

Mom's Favorites of the Month: September

Happy 1st of October! October is my favorite month and  I'm back with some of my favorite beauty and home products that I used for the month of September. I hoped to get this posted yesterday but there was just a lot going on. It also doesn't help that I have been sick the past couple of days. Anywho, these are the items that I am loving the most right now and I wanted to share them with you.

1. WET BRUSHES

By far, this is the best brush that I have ever used. I have naturally curly hair and have tried my fair share of combs and brushes over the past thirty years of my life. Finding that perfect brush and/or comb is a struggle. I have no idea how much money I have dropped over the years. I ended up finding the Wet Brush at Ross and originally bought them for my daughter whom is very tender headed. A friend recommended that I try them on her so I did. One morning I couldn't find my brush so I used my daughter's brush and it was a game changer. I haven't used my brush since that day. No more pulling or tugging when I run the Wet Brush through my hair. If you haven't tried it, you should. I love it and it costs less than $10.

2. JEFREE STAR LIQUID LIPSTICK

Okay, this lipstick is pretty pricey but totally worth it! I love the two shades that I bought from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. My favorite shades are Androgyny and Unicorn Blood. Androgyny is a gorgeous plum mauve and Unicorn Blood is beautiful dark rusty-red. Both shades are perfect for the fall. If you are looking for a new lipstick you should try Jeffree Star Liquid Lipsticks. They cost $18 a pop but its worth it.

3. LORAC BLUSH

Last spring I tried out Lorac's Color Source Buildable Blush in Chroma and I absolutely loved it. This month I decided that I needed a deeper hue for the fall and winter months. I ended up buying the same product in the shade Infrared. It's a beautiful burgundy and I love that I can add color to my cheeks. It costs $22 online at lorac.com and in stores like Sephora and Ulta. Its my favorite blush and I have tried many blushes.

4. O.P.I NAIL POLISH

I am all about dark colors on my nails in the fall. I am loving OPI's Washington D.C. Collection right now. My favorite shade is, "Shh It's Top Secret!" Its a beautiful deep brown and it lasts a long time on my nails. It costs $10 at Ulta.


5. CANDY CORN

Once September hits and candy corn can be found at every super market I buy it by the bag every week. I absolutely love to eat candy corn. Its one of my favorite candies.


6. RIHANNA REB'L FLEUR EAU DE PARFUME

I have a couple of different perfumes but lately I have been reaching for my bottle of Rihanna that I got last Christmas as a gift. It has an intense fruity scent and it little something extra. It smells amazing and I feel a little marvelous whenever I wear it. It costs $59 and you can find it at Macy's.
