On My Nails: Pink and Silver Metallic Crackle by Julep

I’m giving away a beauty goodiebag to one of my lovely readers around the world. You should enter! Click here People who’ve been following my blog for a while know that I don’t really care for crackle nail polish. I think it looks pretty in ads, but in real life I think it looks like ‘old’ nail polish that’s been on your nails for weeks… especially if you have short nails like I do. However, a crackle manicure does last a long time on your nails. Because of the baby I don’t have a lot of time to spend on...

Beauty products I’ve stopped using since having a baby

Hi ladies! Today’s post is about beauty products I’ve stopped using since having my son. These skin care items contain either Retinol or Benzoyl Peroxide, which are both said not to be safe when nursing. It is recommended to discontinue use until after lactation, unless advised by a physician. I, of course, don’t want to do anything that might hurt the baby, so I’ve put these products aside. Want to see which items are not in my bathroom anymore? Keep reading! The first product is the Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector: This is a treatment that reduces the intensity of dark...

Guest blog: Julep Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub (review by Nadine)

In my very first Julep box, back in November, I received a hand care product: the Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub. This is potent glycolic acid combined with apricot seeds that is said to provide powerful double exfoliation and leave your hands feeling noticeably softer and looking younger after just one use. It’s scented with orange oil. A few days after receiving it, I read a tweet from my dear friend Nadine complaining about her dry hands. I decided to give her my hand scrub and ask her to let me know how she liked it. And she did!...

Spotted: Deborah Lippmann nail polishes at TJ Maxx

If you’re in the US, run to your nearest TJ Maxx store! Over the weekend I spotted full-size Deborah Lippmann nail polishes for $5.99 each! These regularly retail for $18 (TJ Maxx’ label says $12, but I don’t think that’s correct!) and are free of Formaldehyde, Toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate. I picked up one color, called ‘Oh! You Pretty Things‘, but there were two more: a minty green and a nude (don’t remember their names). Pretty good deal, if you ask me! 🙂 Like my posts?
