In and Out December


Holidays - spending time with the family and the munchkins - It's nice to catch up and get in a few laughs

Flat boots - I got these as a going to India present a few weeks ago from my aunt and I've been wearing them almost everyday

Blingy Headbands - This has been my go to holiday accessory this season, it just seems to be just festive enough without going overboard.

Nude Nails - I have been obsessed with pink and nudes for nails this winter and Mod About You is my all time favorite color this season

Big Hair - I really love the Aveda Volumizing Tonic - it has done a lot for my hair and it gives me the UMPH I need :)

India - I'm really excited about my visit, I will take pictures and show you the craziness that is shopping there.


Holiday food - I need to get myself sorted out after all this holiday food madness, I'm a big fat FAIL right now :)

OTT Decor - I love decor, I love the holidays but you know.... some people need to draw the line (my neighbors for one)

Chipped Dark Nails - Probably why I'm into nudes at the moment - this is not a good look by any means

Hair Straighteners - I pulled mine iron the other day and proceeded to straighten out my hair and once I saw the lifeless hair I stopped. I haven't used these all year to be quite honest - not even to curl my hair. I much prefer rollers, or curling irons.

Packing - this is always an OUT :)

Everyone has their winter favorites - here are a few of my Winter Must Haves.

Product Review: Sally Hansen Moisture Plump Lip Balm

One of my biggest beauty obsessions is lip balms. I think I have more than I need, and probably more than I can ever use. I hate to admit it but I get very anxious when I am without one - so I always try to carry one with me in all bags, cars, travel cases, etc..etc.. at all times !

I stumbled upon these new Sally Hansen Lip Balms at CVS the other day in a gift pack, being that I really love the Carmindy line for Sally Hansen, I thought I would pick them up
The colors were perfect, and I was really interested in the lip plumping and nourishing aspect.
From L to R: Fresh Pink, Berry Shine and Nude Shimmer

Although Fresh Pink and Nude Shimmer do not show up very well as a swatch - they are probably my favorite shades. Berry Shine is very pigmented for a lip balm - so it's not something I would pickup to wear all the time - but is still very pretty.

I like nude shimmer and fresh pink as a great way to add some shine to lips when you aren't looking to wear gloss or lipcolor.

Overall, I think they're pretty colors but I don't feel much in the lip plumping - they just feel soothing and moisturizing so I can live with that.

These were on sale for 9.99 for all 3 - and well that's a great way for me to play with color :)

Now it your turn ! What are some of your favorite lip balms?

And just to make it fun, I will TAG . . .


And if you happen to be reading this and aren't on the list above - I'd love to know what your favorite lip balm is too !!
