November always feels like that familiar brown, if brown has a feeling. By this time, all of the piles of leaves are gone and what’s left are bare brown trees. Brown never felt very exciting to me, but I found the perfect brown in this bottle of Tahitian Pearl by Mineral Fusion. It’s luscious and will compliment you holding that fork, while it dives into that silky-smooth mountain of gravied mashed potatoes and that crusty brown stuffing on Thursday.
Maybe it’s all the pumpkins around or the name of the polish that drew me in? Or the fact that I am lamenting over the loss of warm weather. And this color by Butter London just brightened my day. It’s so much fun. It’s a perfect orange, not too bright, not too deep. It’s perfect to get you through the pumpkin patch or making that pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and it’s just right when you are feeling silly billy. Enjoy!

A feature on the blog that I did away with last year sometime, hastily, regretfully, which I’m bringing back today is the beauty section, mostly nail polish trends and a little bit of make-up. One trend that is spot on for this fall are deep, moody navy blues and any and all metallic jewel tones. I’m currently obsessed with this one below, (Kinky in Helsinki by O.P.I. Isn’t the name so much fun?) It’s a nice in-between season color, bright enough for the daytime sun and deep and rich enough for that evening chill. Stay warm and have a great weekend!
A girls’ gotta have a little pampering, especially on her birthday! This year the birthday girl is gonna make it a little special and add some glitter! On all nails is Revlon’s “Angelic no.141″ It’s iridescence is truly magical, and reminds me that wishes can come true! (Cheesy right? I can’t wait to blow out the candles!) And on the ring fingers is “Wet & Wild’s Fantasy Makers Confetti” (I found this around Halloween time last year, but a craft store will also have glitter.) Just sprinkle it right onto the wet nail polish and shake the excess off. (Put some paper underneath your nails, so you can pour the excess glitter back into the bottle.) Finish your nails off with a top coat. And now…where’s my cupcake?
