Wantable Accessories Box-- January 2015

  It's been a full year since I've done a Wantable accessories box.  My interest in accessories waxes and wanes, and I seem to feel particularly adventurous during the chilly months.  My experience with these boxes has ranged from excellent to dubious.  I love being surprised, though, so I felt ready to take a chance on another one of these fun boxes (follow either of the prior links for full details on how the program works).

  As my experience with Wantable grows, my mind opens to the possibilities of what I might receive; I've learned to be very specific on my questionnaire but there is still a LOT left to interpretation.  The coolest thing about the service is how it gets you to step outside your comfort zone.  I'm not a fashion risk taker, but these boxes have encouraged me to experiment in ways beyond accessories, which is very cool.

Pantone 2015 Color of the Year: Marsala Polish Picks

Pantone 2015 Color of the Year: Marsala Polish Picks
Pantone Color of the Year 2015: Marsala
  I admit to initially being both underwhelmed and reminded of savory food when Pantone announced their 2015 Color of the Year.  Marsala, an elegant, complex shade with an air of lightness, has really grown on me, though, especially when I realized that a number of my favorite nail polishes easily fit the mold of that color.  I decided to do a little shopping and see if I could spot a few other polishes that work with the scheme, and I was mildly successful.  It turns out this rather "basic" color is anything but!

L'Oreal Masked Affair

  It's official, kids-- 2015 has seen its first super hyped nail polish.  Technically, it is a very late 2014 release but I only just found mine and I know nailistas everywhere are scouring their local (and beyond) drugstores trying to hunt this thing down.
  "This thing" is L'Oreal Masked Affair, singular in the fact that it is the first drugstore brand holographic polish in years (I'm thinking since the Nail Prisms of the early 2000s?), even more so because it is linear, and one with a decent strength, at that.  I only wish I had some sun in which to show this beauty off...

What I Wore-- Happy New Year!!

  *LVX press sample

  Happy New Year, four days late!  If you've been reading for a while you might have seen a few accessories posts interspersed here and there and the whole fashion thing is something I've wanted to expand upon.  Well, it being a new year and all, I've decided to just go for it, lol, so now I'm starting something completely different and trying an "outfit of the day" thing.  Savvy? :)

  Well, C's and my Christmas vacation is drawing to a close and before we both head off to work tomorrow morning, we will have devoured three boxes of chocolates in four days.  I'll get back on the workout bandwagon tomorrow, as well, but in the meantime, I'll just savor a breakfast (now lunch, lol) truffle or two.and tell you all about my favorite beauty products of 2014, both new launches and products I just discovered this year.
