Henri Bendel Spring 2014 Color Combination Inspired Nails + HELP

Hi ladies,
I love Henri Bendel stores. They are like a little girls playground. Cute jewelry, bags, candles and more. I especially enjoy their bracelets.
The color combination was so perfect for spring and I went with simple flower design.


Here is a couple of my favorite Henri Bendel bracelets.... Check the store out HERE

Here's the tutorial :)

I'm having trouble with my blog and can't follow blogs and it seems like I can't receive any comments. Would you please write "test" in my comment box so I can check if it's working. If you can't see your comment posted would you please write me an email to let me know! I know I'm asking a lot! But I really need your help!  
On the blogroll my posts are showing by "no-reply blogger". I don't know if that's what causing the problem.
Thank you ladies in advance!

My HG Bath Soaps: Pimal Elements Soap Bar Review

Hi Beauties!
I'd like to share with you my HG (Holly Grail) , Can't-live-without bath soaps. They are from a company called Primal Elements.
Just take a look at these:

I've discovered them first in a Luxury boutique at Paris Paris hotel in Las Vegas 4 years ago. These are my first 3 soaps I bought:  Cosmopolitan (MY ALL TIME FAVORITE), Cherry and Fleur de Lis. $9 each 6 oz

 Initially the design, craftsmanship and scent attracted me to by them. But when I bathed with them I fell in love with rich lather, the feel, the scent and most importantly how I smelled after the shower. You enjoy the unique to design scent during shower but after shower it's just squeaky clean, fresh scent on your skin that lasts almost all day. 

For example: The Cherry one smells like real ripe cherries while you're bathing but after the shower there's no cherry scent... maybe a hint... but clean and fresh smell is dominant. 
These are high end handmade, vegan soaps made with pure essential and fragrance oils. 

These are bit pricey $9 for a 6 oz bar but it lasts almost 3 months. 
Great and affordable way to try them is to use their specials called: Grab Bag Special.

What's a Grab Bag Special?
1 bag contains whole 2 pounds of soaps that consists of end cuts of the soap loaf. 
And it usually gets on sale for just $10 
But it gets better! Time to time they announce the special Buy 2 Grab Bags get 1 FREE. So this means that for $20 you'll get 6 pounds of soaps! WOW! 

It's an amazing deal and I never miss it! In fact they are having it right now trough 3/5-3/10!  CLICK HERE  to try them out today. 

 This is how they look like. Each bag comes with about 8 random soaps. So it's like getting 24 different soaps just for $20! 

The soaps come in endless design and scents that everyone can find one that they love. My son loves them too and I loooove how he smells after shower. 
Floral, fresh, fruity, oriental woody, citrus, decadent..... you name it... so many scents!!! The beautiful designs make them ideal to gift or just to decorate your bathroom. 

I always have them on hands and it's perfect for unexpected and last minute gifting.
I've tried Lush and many other handmade soaps. Nothing comes close to Primal Elements soaps even ever so popular Lush. 
They make candles and other bath products and I'm planning on trying them out too. 

Remember how everybody who met Oprah say that she smells so good and yet she doesn't use any perfume. She says that she just bathes with soap and her favorite soaps are from Claus Porto
Well these Primal Elements soaps are my way of smelling good. I like to wear perfume also and when I wear a perfume the soaps clean scent doesn't compete, rather compliments the perfume.
I'm always on a hunt for good soaps that make you smell good all day. So please share with me with your HG soaps! 
Thank you for reading!

Lady Gaga's Oscars 2014 Dress Inspired Nail Design Using Floss

Hi Ladies,
Did you guys watch the Oscars last Sunday? So many beautiful dresses on the red carpet. My inspirations come suddenly, I have no say most of the time.  So the moment I looked at Lady Gaga's dress something came to me. First, White and Metallic combination!!! I never thought of that combination on nails before. Then this intricate metallic curves on her dress.

It's not Lady Gaga inspired.... rather Lady Gaga happen to wear a dress that inspired me.
 I used a dental floss to create this manicure so those of you who don't own a nail brush can still do it.

I"M BACK!!! Meet my baby girl!

Hi Beauties!
How are you all doing?  I'm so excited to catch up with you and read your blogs. 
It's been long 4 years since my last post. I did buy the condo near the ocean that I was talking about in my last blog. Now I know why the process was so hard. It was 2009 - the peak of the real estate market crash and banks weren't willing to give loans. 
I'm glad that I managed to get a loan and was so excited with remodeling and then decorating. It consumed me and my time that I couldn't do my YT videos and write posts for a year. 
The last 3 years??? I just don't have good excuses. Many things happen, life happens you know...

One of the great things is that I got my baby girl Mimi. 

She's a 4 year old Shih Tzu mix. Just look at her!!! She wants to give you guys a kiss!

 Isn't she adorable? This OOC (Overload Of Cuteness) makes me smile and warms my heart everyday. What a joy to have a pet!

I hope you guys agree that I'm the OOC!

Even though I didn't post I still was obsessed with beauty stuff and can't wait to share with you guys! 

Stay Beautiful Inside and Out!

It's Not Fair!

Hi Beauties!
Long time no post! Hope everything is well with you guys. I've been kind of depressed and couldn't eat, sleep and post due to my home buying nightmare. It's not finished still and I don't know what to think at this moment.
The property I'm buying is 1.5 miles away from the beach and it's a townhouse style condo, I can't possibly afford a house near ocean. So, one of the homeowners (not the unit I'm buying) did some remodeling without the condo Association approval and the association is suing him. BECAUSE of this Bank Of America is refusing to give me a loan. Everything from my side was perfect and because of someone else's mistake I can't get a loan??? It is so hard to comprehend but I guess banks are getting super strict, so strict that it even doesn't make any sense!
So, if you're thinking to buy a condo, make sure to find out if there's any lawsuits as banks get nervous about it.

On the good note, I've finished with my 20 Pan Project! It benefited me in many ways:
  • Cleared my clutter making space for new items
  • Encouraged me to use up the products. I used to go to bed without applying body lotion or hand cream while I've had dozen products laying around.
  • Saved me $500-$800 at least. After discovering Youtube and Beauty Blogs my spending on beauty products and make ups was getting out of control. I haven't bought anything for 2 months
  • No more uncontrollable urge to shop
Product #16
Olay Age Defying In-Shower Body Lotion
It saves time, moisturizes well, gives nice golden shimmer and easy to use. Just smooth over and rinse in shower.
Cons: The scent is very strong and leaves your shower slippery.

Product #17
Aussie 3 min Miracle Hair Mask.
So affordable at $3.99 performs as well as expensive hair treatments. Smart packaging, just squeeze needed amount, no caps no mess. Leaves my hair noticeably smoother and manageable with less frizz. Not a big fan of it's scent.

Product #18
Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Corrector $39.50
It claims to erase discoloration and dark spots. Since I'm exposed to sun everyday of the year I have tons of sun damages. Unfortunately, I didn't see any change with this product. Needs 4-5 pumps to cover my face, so you run out of it quickly.

Product #19
Shiseido Hydro-Nourishing Softener
I just can't live without it. Saturated in cotton pad it cleans out left over dirt and prepares my skin for next steps of skincare regime.

Product #20
Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash
Great in the morning when you don't need a cleanser for removing your make up. Removes overnight oil and dirt and micro beads polishes your skin preparing it for perfect make up. I did a detailed review HERE.
This project was easier than I expected! Yay!

Thanks Beauties for reading!
Stay Beautiful!
