Sunny's Body Products Seasonal Box: Christmas Edition


Happy Friday! Anyone have fun plans this weekend? I'm probably just going to be doing stuff around my condo. The floors are getting installed today along with the cable and internet, all that will be left is getting everything painted then I can move in! I wasn't expecting everything to go so fast, I thought the floors would be done next week so it was a nice surprise to have them done today (the perks of working at a place that does flooring lol)

Today I have the Christmas box from Sunny's Body Products to share with you! This box is all kinds of awesome with a range of fresh scents to bakery scents and a brand new product! I was pretty excited about this box, next to pumpkin scents Christmas/Holiday scents are my next favorite! The Christmas box will be available starting today over at http://www.365daysofcolorpolishes.com/! Not only does everything smell great in this box but the packaging is super cute, I love the owls! Check out everything after the jump!

Cadillacquer Christmas 2014 Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Well good news if you read my post the other day where I mentioned my monsters from hell in my condo (roaches), they have all been sentenced to death. I had an exterminator out yesterday to fix it all up and spray around my place to kill pretty much anything that has more than 4 legs that I don't want co-habitating with me once I move in.  For those who may worry I checked with the company about what they spray being harmful for Degen and they said it was pet safe for dogs and cats!

In other good news I have a pretty 4 piece collection for Christmas 2014 from Cadillacquer to share with you! These will be available starting tonight over on Cadillacquer's website (linked at the end of the post). Check out all the swatches after the jump!

Elevation Polish Tre Cime di Lavaredo Swatch & Review

Hi guys! Today I have a quick post for ya of a gorgeous Elevation Polish called Tre Cime di Lavaredo! I've had this sitting in my draft posts since August I think (fail, Jen) and I discovered it last night and was like :O I can't believe I never posted this!

Tre Cime di Lavaredo is a fantastical golden holo. The holo is absolutely insane, even indoors in normal lighting! Because of how strong the holo is it makes the base color a bit of a chameleon, sometimes it looks gold, sometimes silver or bronze. Overall it's a gorgeous polish! The formula was fantastic, easy to apply with great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.





You can find this polish at http://elevationpolish.bigcartel.com, it retails for $12.50!

A England Elizabeth and Mary Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Hope you all had a nice weekend! Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday, I had everything all edited and ready to write and post but then I just didn't have time to actually write up the post. My weekend was insane running here there and everywhere trying to get stuff done at my condo and whatnot. Unfortunately I found roaches in my condo (super yuck) so that was pretty much what took up my entire Sunday...after my initial melt down (like literally ran out screaming then shed a few tears lol) about it I got a pest control company to come out and assess the issue. Long story short they are coming out to exterminate the monsters on Wednesday then I have a guy coming over to seal up any crack they can possibly come through to get back in. Roaches seriously gross me out so hopefully after Wednesday I'll never see another one again! Apparently problems like this are common in apartments and condos...I had no idea about that until yesterday haha.

Anyway...today I have a gorgeous new A England Collection to share with you. The Elizabeth and Mary Collection brings up 5 new shades from A England. I was pretty excited about these when I heard of a new collection...I always look forward to new A England polishes because 99% of the time the formulas are flawless. That was very much the case with these, almost all of them were 1 coaters! Check out all the swatches after the jump!

The PolishAholic Pad, Before!

Welp, it's official guys...I am an adult now. I closed escrow on my condo yesterday and am officially a homeowner! I thought I'd show you guys a bunch of "before" photos of my condo! I'm re-doing like 90% of the place so when I'm done it will look a lot different! Right now it's in need of some major TLC, the carpet is pretty gross and all the tile looks like it hasn't been cleaned in like a year...nasty. As I go I'll probably be posting about it on Instagram and Twitter then I'll do a big "after" post here!

I bought a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo, its about 845 sqft...not huge but enough room for me and Degen and that's all I need at the moment...plus it was all I could afford. Buying real estate in Southern California is kind of outrageous. I was watching House Hunters the other day and a couple in Texas bough a 3800 sqft house for less than I paid for my condo...how depressing. Before I move in I'm putting in dark vinyl plank flooring everywhere except for the bathrooms and repainting the entire place!

Big apologies for the crappy lighting in most of the photos, I need to go buy some lamps like right now.

First up is the master bedroom, when you walk in the photo below is what it looks like to the left...I'll probably put my bed here. The rest of the room is long and skinny...apparently I didn't take a picture of it in its entirety...my bad. A+ for the broken blinds, good thing I work at a place that does window coverings haha


At the other end of the master bedroom is a big closet. I'm planning on leaving half of it normal and doing some kind of shelving in the other half. The master bathroom is off to the right.


Below is the entry, there is a nice big closet which I really like. When you walk in you enter to the living room/nook/kitchen...it's all nice and open!

The rest of this post is after the jump because it's a little long!
