I think I am going to start a new series NOTW (nails of the week) where I showcase a simple pic of the nail polish I am rocking for the week. I will likely have more than one pic per week. I think it will help me to stop using the same colors over and over again. It should force me to begin to dig deeper into my nail polish stash. So this week I am rocking "Russian Navy" by OPI.

What are you rocking this week?

WNTW Hair and Skincare

Here is the final What's New This Week video which features skincare items and hair items that I purchased recently.

A Transitioning Kit- Have you tried this?

Hello Ladies
So I was enjoying my stroll through Target when I spotted a transitioning kit from the company Jamaican Mango & Lime. In large print you can see the text "No More Relaxer" so I was obviously intrigued. The kit which is pictured below claims that it can help to prevent a woman from doing the big chop by straightening the new growth to blend in with the relaxed hair. I know, it sounds like a relaxer, right? OK well as I read it, it basically stated that you would use the product on your hair and then apply heat and your hair would be straight without having to use a relaxer. Well I had a few concerns, first of all, why does the kit come with gloves? Why do I need gloves to apply this product to my hair, sounds like a chemical to me. Secondly this straightened look will last throguh roughly two to three washes. Still sounds like a relaxer, right? Thirdly, it comes in maximum and mild strength. All of this screamed mild relaxer, but the box says it's a heat activated treatment. What's a gal to think? This product costs $19.99 and if you want to see the ingredients, I did the best that I could using my camera phone, so please scroll down to see the ingredients.
I did not buy this kit but I was seriously considering making the purchase. On Sunday I was convinced that I should give it a try but when I went back to Target, each box of the mild version had been tampered with so I didn't make a purchase. I guess this product really piqued the curiosity of other women. I am now thinking that I won't buy it but who knows....

Ingredients- click on the picture to get a better view of the ingredients.

If you've tried this product, please leave your experience in the comment section below. What do you all make of this product?

Calling all Professionals & My nail of the DAY

Today I will exhale.
This morning I woke up and read an email from a blogger (her latest blogging venture is under the name We Live Style) who has been reading my posts for some time now. In fact, she remembered my blog back when I used to post weekly. Get a load of that, for all of you newbies to my blog, yes, there was a time when I produced weekly and dare I say it DAILY posts. Now I'm fortunate if I am able to pump out a few posts a month, and that saddens me because I have tons of things I would like to discuss. But alas too many things get in the way and prevent me from getting done the things that bring me enjoyment. Now don't get me wrong, I am not some drone just working 24/7 without ever taking a break, but I am a gal who prioritizes and yes my 9-5 career takes precedence. Coincidentally, I read an article from Forbes yesterday, which was retweeted by T from the blog Tea and Such and it discussed women burning out by age 30 primarily because of the ways in which we may overextend ourselves for the JOB. It mentioned that our professional male counterparts take more breaks on the job just to relax, along with a host of other "this job won't stress me out" exercises. Along with the job and other things that we all have to do I sat there thinking am I reeking of singed fabric from my burn out without even knowing it? Go on, take a whiff could my lack of daily blogs be an indication that I too have experienced a burn out?
Well today I exhale because for the last two days I have done something which I had not done in a long while- I went to bed early!!!!! Which in turn has allowed me to create a blog post for you this morning 6:38 am, but I feel good- very good. Perhaps this is a new day- heyyyyy.
What do you do to prevent the job and anything else in your life from burning you out?

I would be remiss if I didn't show you my sparkly work INAPPROPRIATE
I'm wearing a combination of Trxie from Zoya and Gone Gonzo from the OPI (the Muppet collection). Both polishes will be featured in my vlog for this week.
