BBC November Challenge - Red, Yellow, and Orange! #bbcchallenge

Hello, Fireflies!

Here in the US, today is known as Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year.  It's also the day that it is socially acceptable to recognize that the holidays are here, and to start decorating!  So, while I'm still thinking of Fall, and Fall colors like the ones for today's BBC Challenge, I'm interpreting them in a holiday way!

Hello, Fireflies!

Happy Thanksgiving!  If we're lucky, today is a day filled with good smells.  Why shouldn't we smell good, too?

Greyscale Nails

Hello, Fireflies!

Today's post finishes out this month's NCC's theme of Monochrome.  I just couldn't resist doing the ultimate monochrome nailart - greyscale.  But, with a glittery twist!

Men's* Gift Guide #jewelryyorganizer #CareWares #shaving #liveinfinitely #ballroomdancing

Hello, Fireflies!

My husband is incredibly hard to shop for.  I know, in general, what a lot of his favorite things are - books, video games, comics - but I couldn't tell you which particular game he wanted, or which books he didn't already have.  So, over the last 20 years, we've developed a system for the "big" gift of the season.  I ask him what he wants, and then we go buy it together.  That way, he gets exactly what he wants.  He then wraps his own gift and puts it under the tree!

I do like to get him smaller things, often surprises, that I think he'll like.  I picked a few things I think many men would like to get as a gift... and maybe some women, too!

Clearly The Treatment for Luminous Skin #AvantiRx

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

As a woman over 40, I fully expected to be dealing with skin aging issues - dullness, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation.  I didn't expect to still be dealing with pimples and blemishes.  I felt like an alien - an old broad with teenage zits.  My first reaction was to deal with the pimples the same way I did when I was a kid - drying tonics.  Sure, some of them work as spot treatments, but drying out all of my skin is bad.  Now I know that my oily skin still needs moisture, and that the balance of oil - along with knocking out the pimple-causing bacteria - is the way to keep my skin looking better over the long term.

Scrub-a-dub-dub For My Makeup Brush! #ScrabShell #ScrubShell

Press sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Not so long ago, really, I only knew about using sponge applicators to apply eyeshadow.  I actually remember have one fall apart on me, and I had no idea how I was ever going to use that shadow again!  Silly me.
