Polish and Treat Nails: All In One

I am always looking for multi-tasking beauty products. I love having one product that eliminates the need for other, similar ones. That’s why I am loving Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat.
This Gel Coat helps solve problems for any nail type: soft, weak, dry or brittle. But my favorite part about the product is that it makes your nails a pretty pink color when applied.
Another bonus of Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat is that it actually filters out any yellow color in your nail. I have had the dreaded “yellow nail” problem before after months and months of wearing clear polish.
I just started using the product and my nails already feel stronger and they look so pretty and natural! It is formulated with keratin and calcium and it creates a protein-rich coating which instantly strengthens nails and helps them grow longer.
It's a little pricey at $30 but since it is more than one product in one, I really think it is worth it!!

Happy ME! :)

Yes, it's that time of year again. Time to celebrate my 21st birthday..once again! :) I am very thankful for another healthy year of life filled with the people I love and some very special furry friends. I will probably be stuffing myself with delicious sweet and savory treats all day. I was lucky enough to start celebrating early. My boyfriend brought me this treat buffet a day early...delicious!

And on this happy day, I am happy to have you as my readers. I look forward to another year of chatting with you! :)

Cover Up Imperfections with Smart Cover

Most of us have spots on our skin we wish we could cover up like moles, acne, and under-eye circles. Regular concealer usually won’t do the trick..but there is a product that does!

It’s called Smart Cover. I like to think of Smart Cover as a heavy-duty concealer that can be used for the face and body.

Smart Cover comes in a concealing cream and a cover stick. You can choose the color of the cream to match your skin tone and the cover stick comes in a neutral color.
I was anxious to try Smart Cover after looking at some of the before and after pics on their site.

 Smart Cover provides enough coverage to even cover large tattoos! I gave it a try on some moles on my arm. I put on two applications and waited five minutes for it to dry before putting on my shirt. Smart Cover made my arms look mole-free which I found really amazing!
You can buy Smart Cover in a kit of different products or you can buy items like Perfect Touch and Anti-Aging Pick-Up Sticks individually.
You can wash off Smart Cover with soap and water but an easier way is to use Smart Cover Cleanser.
Have you tried Smart Cover or are you interested in trying it? I would love to here your thoughts and see your before and after pics!

Liquid Hand Soap Leaves Hands Feeling/Smelling Great!

I must admit, I have a weakness for great smelling liquid hand soap. I can’t get enough of the awesome feeling that comes from washing your hands in wonderful, fragrant soap.
I have found a new hand soap that I can’t get enough of and I am in love! It comes from a brand I just discovered called Farmhouse made by Sweet Grass Farm. My favorite scent right now is Fresh White Lilac. Not only does this soap feel amazing, it smells WONDERFUL. I have a bottle in my kitchen and I keep finding excuses to wash my hands just so I can make them smell good!
There are a couple of unique things about this soap. The smell lasts a LONG time. Have you noticed after washing your hands, that the smell of most soaps doesn't linger? That definitely isn’t the case with Farmhouse soaps. The other cool thing is that their liquid soaps can also be used as shower gels and some people say it works great as..a shampoo!!
You can buy a BIG bottle of Farmhouse Liquid Soap (16.9 ounce) for $8.95.
Have you tried Farmhouse Liquid Soaps or any other Farmhouse products? I would love to hear what you think about them!

TRUEly the Best Show on TV!!

I remember when I first saw a promo on HBO for their new series, True Blood. Of course this was several years ago, and I have to admit I thought the concept was a little silly. Needless to say, I didn't tune in for the first season. But I kept hearing people talk about the show and they said it was amazing. So, I decided to check out the show on On Demand..and well, after the first episode, I was a True believer!

I will be the first to admit I am not a huge Sci-Fi fan (that's what turned me away at first) but the show has interesting, well developed characters, suspenseful plots, and spot on wit!
I have enjoyed all the seasons but I think the writers and actors have really outdone themselves with the current season, Season 4.

I am so very sad that next Sunday will be the season 4, season finale. I won't give any spoilers for those who are still catching up, but this upcoming episode looks very interesting and I am sure we will be left with a cliff-hanger as usual. 
So, are any of you die-hard Truebies?? What do you think about this season??

All the Pretty Things...

I adore looking at pictures of pretty things online. If I ever have down time, that's what I do with it. That's why I was super duper excited when I heard of a site to put all the pretty pictures I loved on the internet..into one spot. Since I signed up for Pinterest, I'm pretty happy with all the lovely pics I have "pinned". Here are some of my faves...

So...if you aren't already a Pinterest member..what are you waiting for? The sign up process is's free..and it's ever so simple to start your own collections of things you love online! Oh..and follow me while you're at it and I will follow back!
Have a wonderful LONG weekend friends! See ya Tuesday! :)

Wonderful Website for the Beauty Obsessed!

If you are obsessed with beauty products like I am...then you must check out and sign up (it's free) at  Makeupalley 

There are so many cool things you can do on the site like find very helpful reviews on virtually any beauty or health product on the market. The reviews really helped me out on choosing a new face wash. I checked out several face washes online then went to makeupalley to check out the reviews. The end result: a face wash I love more than any I have ever tried!
The other feature of the site that I am totally obsessed with is the swap forum. How many times have you tried a shampoo or a nail polish once only to just isn’t for you? You would not believe the amount of beauty products I have at home that just weren’t what I had hoped they’d be. I had no idea what to do with them and ended up throwing many of them away. Not anymore. You can actually trade those items..or brand new items..and even books..cds..and clothing..with people all across the world. I have already completed more than 30 successful swaps with wonderful ladies across the US.

After each swap, you are rated by your partner. You can get a good idea of how trustworthy a potential swap partner will be based on those ratings. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg for this site. I have been so caught up with the swap and review parts of the site, I haven’t checked out the forums or anything else.
Are you a member of If so, please let me know what I should check out next. If not, I highly recommend you join!!
