BODY | *NEW* Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula + GIVEAWAY!

I wish Palmer's was more readily available to me at my local drugstores because every time I use one of their moisturizers, I reminded of how awesome their products really are in terms of both price point and efficacy. I think many of us have grown up with the classic Palmer's Cocoa Butter line, but now there are three new additions made with raw coconut and Tahitian monoi oil - oooooh!

NAILS | Emerald Christmas Trees #ManiMonday

"O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree" - greetings to the first holiday-themed manicure of the season! I had really wanted to start much sooner, but I honestly haven't been all that inspired. Christmas nails are probably my least favourite forms of nail art (weird, I know considering the type of season it is) mainly because I feel like once you have done one form of Santa or reindeer nails, you've pretty much done them all. I've done Christmas minions and Seasonal Stormtroopers to add some variety to the typical Christmas manicures and I think I may have to do the same this year so any suggestions are welcomed!

HOLIDAY | Shu Uemura x Super Mario Bros Collection Swatches with Makeup Look (PICTURE HEAVY)

The Holidays always has some swoonworthy, must-have makeup collections, but this year my heart has been taken by none other than the droolworthy Italian pizza hunk - Super Mario. When my family and I first came to Canada almost 30 years ago, the first major toy purchase we made was the first generation Nintendo Entertainment System. There were only two games in that starter pack (back when they actually GAVE you a game with the system!) and they were Super Mario Bros. and of course Duck Hunt (YEAHHH DUCK HUNT!). Ever since then, there has always been some form of Mario in my life whether he was racing a kart or smashing other villains and now he's in my makeup!

NAILS | Rouge Louboutin Metalissime #ManiMonday

I don't really need to say much about this polish because it speaks for itself. It's just THAT stunning. Limited edition for this holiday season, the Rouge Louboutin Metalissime collection had my heart pounding with excitement! I had just gotten a couple of gift cards from spending oh-so-much money on my RBC VISA that I figured it was time to go to Holt Renfrew and pick up 1/3 of this collection - The Rouge Louboutin Metalissime Nail Colour ($65.00 CDN)

HOLIDAY | American Crew Travel Pack + GIVEAWAY!

The season of giving is in full effect now and we are going to start this week with a quick review and giveaway of one of my husband's favourite brands - American Crew! I asked if he could write a review for the products in the American Crew Travel Pack* ($49.95 CDN), but I got some laconic male answers when it came to each of them so I guess it's up to me to give you guys the deets!
