Cheers to Vibrant Mondays!

How awesome, it’s a Leap Year! What shall we do with this extra day?

Mondays can be intimidating and hopeful at the same time. It’s the start of a new week and opportunity to start off fresh. A clean slate if you will. Do you have plans to make something this Monday? A new project? A new goal? A conversation? It’s Make Something Monday, and I decided it’s time to make it a vibrant one!  –Well, starting with my lips. It’s amazing how a splash of color to one’s lips can change the mood.

BITE’s Holiday Lipstick Set is a must have!

One of my favorite past times is to play with make-up. I have drawers full (of make-up) and don’t get to play as often as I’d like. I typically go to the same, safe, peachy pink lip liner. A friend of mine recently spoiled me with holiday set of lip colors from a brand called BITE. I love it when gifts expose me to a new brand that works for me. Don’t you?!?! I love this stuff!!! I think you would too! I am obsessed with this brand!

Here are just a few reasons:

  • The colors are bold and bright but do not bleed!
  • BITE’s products are all-natural, using food-grade ingredients
  • Free of parabens, sulfates, petroleum and gluten
  • BITE’s products are antioxidant-rich, ensuring that your lips are hydrated
  • Smells so good (not like that common crayon/ wax smell you find with most lipsticks)

Whether it’s making your face or someone’s day a bit more vibrant, I hope you make it a great Monday and a rest of the week for that matter.


Oh my… OPI!

OPI Sweet Memories
OPI Sweet Memories

The responsible hedonist in me loves a great mani-pedi…but sometimes, I just have more important things to do and don’t have the patience (and am not detail oriented enough) to paint my nails pretty. My left hand shakes and trembles and the end result just isn’t pretty.

Fortunately, my friend Soraya gifted me this beautiful nail polish by OPI. The color is called “Sweet Memories.” How fitting as these were part of her favors for her baby shower. I love, love, love everything about this polish! Fresh, clean, forgiving, feminine and presentable enough for that power appointment. Ideal for a stocking stuffer (and for yourself).
