Glitter, Glitter, Glitter, Glitter Rockin’ Everywhere

My Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida crew has come together to rap about one of our favooooorite things. Glitter!! I get it. Glitter isn’t for everyone but I am so here for glitter. Every ounce of it. If  it were safe, I’d bathe it in. Okay, definitely too much information. Ha! I decided to showcase some glitter nail polishes that I got as a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law. It’s always hard shopping for a beauty lover because we always obtain the things that we want. And some people want to go beyond a gift card. Indie really is the best way to go because I don’t always have my eyes on what the indie brands are doing.

So not only did a get a fabulous collection of Avenger-inspired nail polishes, but I was introduced to a new brand as well. WIN!

That Day I Twirled Around In Wedding Dresses

Alfred Angelo wedding dresses

Girls. Can you believe this? Can you believe that I am married women who (up until last month) had never tried on a wedding dress? It’s pretty unheard of here in the United States. As many of y’all know, Esposo and I eloped and while we don’t have any regrets about it, it wasn’t until I went to a blogger event at Alfred Angelo when I realized, “Dang it, man…I LOOK good in wedding dresses!”

The Healing Powers of a Green Juice

I love everything about green juices. And this is crazy because a few years ago, I was SO in love with green smoothies. So much so that I thought about doing a series all about green smoothies. That didn’t happen. Ha! But The love for the smoothies is still there but honestly…I love green juices more. Don’t get me wrong, I still curling up with a book and glass of freshly blended greens and fruits but there’s something very special and nourishing about a green juice. 

Green juices

For one thing, they aren’t always sweet. I have a greater appreciation for vegetables because unlike my smoothies, my juices usually only have 1 fruit in them as opposed to nut milks, bananas, berries, etc. The juices keep it simple but still oh so delicious. 

Yummy Green Juice

Cirque Burlesque Nail Polish Collection

How have I been back for almost a month and have not showcased some nail polishes? Yeesh!! Months before I went on my hiatus, I received some polishes from Cirque Colors and aside from being ridiculously excited that I was on their radar, I was honored that they decided to send me some polishes.

Cirque Nails Burlesque Collection

I took these pictures months ago and ugh, I so wish my nails were this long now. I am in loooove with that shape and I just haven’t been able to achieve it thanks to this colder weather. But whatever. I’ll lust and do what I can to get my nails to that point again.

My Love For The Massive Beauty Aisle In Publix

Publix Beauty Aisle

If you’re in the Southeast parts of the United States, you know how much we love Publix. Known for their stellar customer service, amaziiiiing bakery and deli departments, Publix is staple grocery store here in Florida. In fact, when I lived in Cali for a brief stint and would go back home, my first stop was always Publix. While I’ve always associated the brand with tasty noms and clean floors, Publix is an ideal stop for us beauty lovers! Especially for my beauty lovers who are prepping up for Game Day!

My Mission To Have It All

Totally irrelevant to beauty, I know, but yours has had 2 Nissan cars in her day. We’re actually in the market for a new car (gulp) and you can only imagine what I already have in mind. I’m a girl who knows what she wants and I very rarely stray away from things that do right by me. Like my trusty Nissan.
