Selfie much?

 Hi ya Gorgeous,
I am not a big selfie taker, but when I do, it's usually before I swim with sharks or zip line across a rain forest.

I was sent a sample of this from Glam Screen. It's a mirror for the face of my phone and an attachment for the back to help stabilize the phone for picture taking.

 This is everything that arrived, though it is for an iPhone 5. Hmm. I don't have an iPhone.

 So it doesn't fit and has since been recycled. For the person who get's it in their Christmas stocking, Merry Christmas.

 The idea that Glam Screen has is a good one, why waste the surface of your phone when you could be checking your lipstick and teeth situation. It's $24.99 and would be great for you if you use the iPhone.

 Now, here is a unique feature-it's part narcissist, part function and all cheese. The hands free selfie ring rests on your middle and ring finger to help balance the phone while you take a picture of yourself. Note, that it can double as a phone stand.
The Hands Free Selfie Ring is good for teenagers, independent photo journalist who travel the outback and possibly putting in a naughty someone's Christmas stocking instead of a lump of coal.

It sells for $19.99 and you can purchase it online here.

I'm so excited for Sadie Robertson and will be watching shortly to vote for her!

 Now let's meet the Norvell Sunless Solutions and the Dancing with the Stars self tanning products.

Monday blogs: my new trail running sneaker review

 Hello Gorgeous!
I love Mondays! I get SO much done on a Monday. Okay, I start each day with a run, sometimes it's just a lil 3 miler and sometimes it's 5 or more. This means, that I go through a pair of sneakers every 3 months.

 I am done with buying high priced, fancy, designer running sneakers. Mainly due. to the high cost of constantly replacing my sneakers once the tread has been run off.

Now, meet these cheapies I got at Big 5 for $37.00
Yep. $37.00

Madame Secretary, welcome to CBS and The Good Wife with an unction to Come Clean Pop Culture Soap

Hello Gorgeous,
Cheers to your Sunday being part adventure and part rest!

Now, finally-the new Fall season of tv is starting tonight. I have some favorite shows that I like watching and want to see what happens after last season's cliff hanger! Can you say, The Good Wife!

But-in a programming strategy by CBS, they have hammocked the new Tea Leoni  drama "Madame Secretary" between the always popular 60 Minutes and faithful watchers of The Good Wife like me.

So, yes, I will be watching Madame Secretary just becasue it comes before my favorite show and the tv most likely will be on after 60 Minutes. Personally, it's nice to have a break because my family loves watching The Amazing Race and it's usually on after 60 Minutes and leads straight into The Good Wife.
Will is dead. What is going to happen to Lockhart Gardner?

 Okay, onto product: meet Come Clean soap. So my son has a chance to get a good bath before his Monday school day-why? Because The Amazing Race is not on. So instead of rushing a shower on a commercial, he is in there soaking to this soap.

ULTA Beauty 21 Days of Beauty with Smashbox On the Rocks Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette

 Hello Gorgeous,
All you ladies at the I Heart Radio Music Festival, I sure hope you have already been to your local ULTA Beauty  store for the "21 Days of Beauty" event!

Because this amazing eye pallete is available right now, but I don't know for how long! Smashbox shadows are velvety on the lid and wear forever while having a true pigment for hours! Get some!

 I start by doing my eyebrows with Bourbon. Please let me take this moment to say I'm sorry for not following the instructions in the eyeshadow box. It outlines everything as well as shows some great eye makeup tutorials. But. Nope. Didn't do it. So wing it with me from here on out.

 Eyebrows are filled in with Bourbon and now  I sweep Opus all over my lid.

 Time to do a purple smokey eye on one lid and a daytime purple eye on the other! I'm using Chianti on both eyes. One eye has Chianti all over the lower lid, and the other has it just as in the corner/crease for accent.

 I then use Blacktop as my lower eyeliner, as well as a corner of the outer eye accent.
 Now this is the finished nighttime eye ( by the way, I'm on my way to my son's school for a meeting...)
 And here is the finished daytime eye, though, with the lighting and camera angle, I'm not sure you can see the subtle definition?

 Okay, finally here are some swatches: again,  I did not follow the directions in the box, please, would you follow them? They are so helpful. If only I had seen that earlier!

The swatches in the top photo: Top left: Blacktop, Chianti, Bourbon, then the middle line which is difficult to see due to my pale arm and the light shadow: on top: Opus, Confectionette.
 Now in this photo, starting from the top left of the arm: Coronation, Midnight Emerald, then the light shades are Vanilla, Mist, and the last row are Nutmeg, Sapphires, and Obsidian.

I love every color and thse can from day to night, work to play!
The Smashbox On the Rocks palette is $36 at ULTA Beauty!

I Heart Radio Music Festival Village-you need some of this right here...Swipe

Ok Gorgeous,
You are only just so gorgeous if you aren't stinky too.

Swipes are single use deodorant biodegradable towelettes. Super slim too. Just right for a clutch purse or wallet. Besides, Starlord says Swipe it!

 I've got a weekend that is the calm before the storm. While I enjoy this respite, I've got a new manicure on with butter LONDON La Moss, $15.00. It is the perfect dark red color for Fall.

La Moss Nail Lacquer

A vampy deep, dark red nail lacquer full of red wine, just like its inspiration. DEFINITION:

You may be asking, "why am I talking about holiday season now?" - according to my Costco, it's already Christmas time. My son has Fall break in two weeks. Personally, I like to be prepared, and having this must have beauty item in your arsenal will be a lifesaver on the days where you work all day, get the kids and suddenly have to make an evening party.

Trust me. You want one of these!


Tabatha Coffey will be appearing on QVC tomorrow, September 19th to showcase her newest launch from the LUXHAIR HOW™ by Tabatha Coffey collection - a line of professional, high-end, yet affordable, everyday wigs and hairpieces.

Here is a little bit about Tabatha Coffey and her new QVC product!


 Announcing the NEW 10" Circle Extension from LUXHAIR™ HOW™ by Tabatha Coffey, a QVC exclusive. You may have heard of flip in or halo extensions, which are similar, but this is really something special. 

The Circle Extension gives you an instant hair transformation without clips or any other form of adhesive. A two layer weft of hair is attached to a thin invisible band, which slips around your head to add lush length and natural looking volume in seconds. 

The hair is revolutionary Keralon ™ Light heat resistant synthetic fiber, which allows you to style with heat tools up to 320° Fahrenheit. Lightweight, easy to apply and clip-free, the Circle Extension is a whole new kind of hair extension. The 10" Circle Extension from LUXHAIR™ HOW™ by Tabatha Coffey retails for $79, available at QVC.com.

  1. Slip the halo over your head, with the extension at the back of your head.
  2. Position band around the top of your head like a hair band. Use a fine-tailed comb to pull the top strands of your hair over the band to blend in.
  3. Style using a curling iron or flat iron if desired, and you're ready to go!
• Keralon™ Light Heat Resistant Synthetic Hair Fiber - A revolutionary, lightweight hair fiber that feels luxuriously silky and soft, and can be styled with heat tools up to 320° Fahrenheit. It was developed for the HOW™ collection to the exact denier, thickness and weight as natural human hair.
• Double Layer Weft - Two connected wefts of hair provide more coverage, fullness and volume than the single weft found on most hair extensions.
• Invisible Band - Lighter shade band on the light hair colors and darker shade band on the dark hair colors to better blend in with your hair.

Available Color Shades for 10" Circle Extension:

Now here is how to enter and win your own LUXHAIR™ HOW™ by Tabatha Coffey 10" Circle Extension
