How To Winterize Your Nails

The picture above is my awkward attempt at showing you freshly winterized nails. :-) I've been super busy the past three months and when that happens, my nails generally suffer. During that time,  I rarely found a moment to apply a clear coat of polish, which was evident by my dull peeling nails. Whenever I need to transition into the winter season or when my nails simply need a little love, I turn to my winterized nail  routine. 

First take a look at my dry nails, if you enlarge the picture you will see the visible ridges  and dehydrated appearance of my nails. 

Clearly these nails are in desperate need of repair. 

Step 1
I love to start by removing my excess cuticles. Although I have not blogged about this yet, my favorite cuticle remover is now  Vanish by Julep. Unlike other cuticle removers, I've noticed that you you can actually remove your cuticles immediately following application. However, it's recommended that you allow the product to remain on your cuticles for 30 second before attempting to remove the excess cuticles. The dropper applicator allows you to control the amount of product that is dispensed on each nail.
Vanish is priced at $16.00.

 I use the angled side of my trusty orange wood stick to remove the unwanted cuticles.  The pointy side of the wooden stick is then used to clean any unsightly remains from under my nails.

Step 2
Although the instructions that accompany Vanish, suggest that you wash your hands with soap and water after removing your cuticles. Before washing my hands I buff my nail bed just a bit with my Julep buffer, which I received in a Julep Maven box.

 Step 3
I now turn to my glass nail file to shape my nails. I also use my nail clipper to clean up any additional areas that may need attention.  The objective is to first address all of the steps in my nail care routine that would result in additional nail debris on the surface of my nails.

After shaping my nails properly, I am ready for the soaking process.

Step 4

Since it's difficult to separate our nails from the rest of our hands, I like to incorporate a step that will also cater to my entire hand. I take a bowl of warm water and I add in oils, pieces of a bath melt and a special milk based therapeutic spa treatment.

I break off a chunk of this paraben free bath melt which will soften the skin surrounding my nails as well as the rest of the skin on my hands.
I generally submerge both hands in the solution and soak my hands for 5-10 minutes.

 Next, I typically turn to a mild scrub which I use on my hands to further smooth out my skin.

 After completing this part of the process, I always see a drastic improvement in the appearance of my nails.

Step 5
If necessary I use a buffer to add a bit more shine and luster to my transformed nails.

Step 6

Now it's time to paint. I like to start with my $18.00 Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat by  Julep. This particular base coat is designed to smooth out any ridges that you may have on your nails. It's supposed to lay a smooth foundation before you apply your nail color.
Let's take a look at my nails after one application of this base coat.

 After two coats:

Step 7

I am ready to add a little color. Today, I applied Dahlia by Julep, which always reminds me of a shimmery version of curry powder. You can click here to shop this and other Julep nail polish  colors.

I used two coats of Dhalia.

Step 8

 I seal the entire process with a coat of the Julep Freedom Top Coat. Although I have never held my nails up to a light bulb to test out Julep's claim that the Freedom top coat can give you gel like results, I do know that when allowed to dry under normal conditions, it leaves my nails super shiny.

After my nails have dried completely, I like to add a little lotion to my hands to finalize the entire process.

Here is a final look at some of my most important pieces of the puzzle.

So do tell, how do you winterize your nails?
Thanks for reading!!!

Scentsational Soaps and Skincare review

Scentsational Soaps Review


 For me, there is no comparison between natural soaps packed with great ingredients, and their skin drying chemically laden counterparts found on most store shelves.  So when granted the opportunity to try out some of the natural and organic soap offerings from Scentsational Soaps and Skincare, I leaped at the offer.  Pictured throughout this post you will see all of the soaps that I received, including the sample bars. So let's get to it and break down my thoughts on these soaps.
(Pictured above is the top view of the Royal Jelly Lemon Drop soap pictured at the start of this post).

Scent and Lather:
The scents of these soaps are well matched with the actual name of each bar. I started by smelling a sample bar (not pictured) of the Honeyed Pumpkin Almond soap, which smelled too good to be true. It literally smelled like honey and almonds, emphasis on the almond scent. Of all of the soaps that I tried, one of my favorite scents was the "Royal Jelly Lemon Drop" soap pictured above, it smells like a light lemongrass scent. The fragrance was amplified while I was lathering up in the steamy bathroom. After getting out of the shower I could literally smell it in the air. However, it wasn't clear to me that the scent remained on my skin after I toweled off.  I proceeded to give my skin a quick sniff and  yup, the scent of lemongrass had remained. While the scent isn't long lasting, it smells good while it lasts. The Chocolate Honey Decadence soap smells like a hot cocoa with a dash of peanut butter.
 If I wanted anything else in terms of the scent, it would be increased intensity and longevity so that I could detect it on my skin for a longer period of time without having to physically put my arm to my nose. To be fair, it could also be that I simply became so immersed in the scent that it was difficult to determine the source from which the scent emanated.

(Picture above is a decorative swirly design on the top of the Chocolate Honey Decadence Soap)

Although the specific ingredients differ from soap to soap, they all have natural and organic ingredients. You can click on and enlarge the picture of the back of the soap packaging (at the end of this post) to read the ingredient list for yourself. You will find a host of oils, honey and in the case of the Chocolate Honey Decadence soap, cocoa butter.

Price & Sizes:
The soaps range in price from $2.00 for the 1 oz sample  soaps to $8.00 for the "smooth shaving soap". The majority of the soaps are 4 oz and are sold for $7.80. This is a typical price for a single bar of soap in the natural soap arena.

Upon contact the soap seemed to soften my skin. It was such a pleasure using these soaps because it didn't dry my skin out and it continued to feel soft after I toweled off.  I suppose all of the oils in the soap help to lock in the moisture from the water....I'm guessing here but it sounds possible, so I am going to roll with it.

The full sized soaps both lasted roughly 1 week and 4 days. I haven't used a unnatural soap bar in years so I have no recollection of how long those bars use to last. I should also note that the 1 week 4 day period covered multiple daily 20 minute showers. My shower duration was subject to change based on my mood, but on average I had 20 minute sessions. If any of you still use store bought soaps please let me know how long one bar lasts for you.

Final Recommendation
Try them ALL, you may even want to start with the sampler soaps as shown below. You can even buy the soap stacker, for $6.00, which comes with 4 sample soaps. Purchasing the stacker will help you to determine the scents that are most pleasing to you if you are hesitant to purchase the large size.

(The soaps directly above this text were a part of my soap stacker, minus the Honey Orange Blossom bar which I had already used before taking this picture.). Please check my preview to the review video and you will see all of the soaps before I began using  the sample soaps. Click here
(If you enlarge this picture you will see the ingredients of the Chocolate Honey Decadence soap.)

Have you tried anything from Scentsational Soaps and Skincare?
I have already recorded a video reviewing the other items that I received from Scentational Soaps. My review of the body butter, facial, hair & lip products, liquid body wash and body scrub will all be discussed in my next post. I will hopefully have the video posted tomorrow, Thursday October 23rd...if not tonight.  
Thanks so much for reading and a huge thanks to Sarah and Chad from Scentsational Soaps and Skincare for sending me these lovely soaps.

Billie's Jeans Denim Day 2014 supported by DID Nail Paint and the Dasha Wellness & Spa

During my undergraduate years I lived a virtually carefree life, social outings and my grades were among my chief concerns. I assumed my classmates led equally self indulgent lives until I became better acquainted with one  young woman.  She managed a full course load while working and caring for two young children, one of whom was not her own. She was intelligent, determined, and well liked by her peers all while secretly living as a victim of violence at the hands of her fiance. I think I was the only one trusted with that information but I remember wondering how that violent cycle had become her reality. Unfortunately, she is not alone, there are many woman and children who become victims of various violent acts every day. This year on April 23rd Denim Day was recognized in LA, NY and other areas around the country. Denim Day is a day designated for a national discussion on how we all can have a share in working to prevent violence in our personal and professional lives.
I was honored to attend the DASHA Wellness & Spa in Midtown Manhattan to learn more about Denim Day. At the event I also leaned about some brands that used their time, resources and products to support Denim Day. Adrienne Blanks, the owner of the 4 free nail polish brand,  DID Nail Paint, sold bottles of her polish that evening and donated a portion of each sale towards Denim Day. Shannon and Darren Pollack, owners of the DASHA Wellness & Spa, not only opened their doors on 115 E 57th to house the  15th annual celebration of Denim Day but they also offered free massages to all in attendance.
Please check out the video below to hear more about D.I.D Nail Paint and the DASHA Wellness & Spa.

Were you aware of Denim Day?
What acts small or large,  are you performing to prevent acts of violence in your personal lives?

Have you seen: First

Greetings Everyone

When I saw a trailer last month of Jahmela Bigg's new web series, First, my interest was immediately piqued. First, is a promising new web series that features actors we don't get to see with regularity on our television screens. The perfectly crafted trailer highlights a brief encounter between old friends whose telling glares and gentle movements are exchanged over a melodic tune, that's pretty much all I needed to be hooked. 
Last night, was the premier of the first episode and as I clicked the play button I was hopeful that the episode would live up to all that I had imagined, and deliver it did. If you have yet to be counted among the thousands of views that this new series has already garnered, do yourself a favor and click the play button below!
My new favorite web series stars stellar actors Jahmela Biggs and Will Catlett.  James Bland serves as the talented director of this series. 
From the acting to the editing and music, this series is IT!!!

What do you think of the first episode?

I Tried Something New

Happy Friday Everyone

Earlier in the week I made my obligatory trip to Sephora,and as usual I tried to keep to myself and peruse the products unencumbered by sales reps. looking to help. This week I was unable to avoid the prying eyes of a woman who appeared to be a Sephora newbie. She wanted to share all of her treasures of information, but to make a long story short, I ended up booking a free facial for later in the week, today. I walked towards Sephora knowing that I would arrive on time, (early is on time), for my appointment and sashayed over to the skin care area. My doting sales rep from earlier in the week was no where to be found, but I did see a fabulous looking sales rep giving a facial to a client who looked as relaxed as anyone who has ever taken a Caribbean cruise. She was sprawled out in a reclining chair with her eyes closed as the woman massaged her cares away. I was giddy because like any woman who works and has responsibilities enjoying some pampering is welcomed. I waited patiently for my turn as I examined items on the nearby shelves. I was then approached by another employee and I explained that I was waiting for my facial, she said" no need to wait I will take care of you". I thought, ok so the fabulous woman who has flawlessly applied makeup and the meticulously manicured mane giving facials in the corner won't be handling my skin???? I immediately saw it as a missed opportunity to get that woman to divulge all of her beauty secrets, but if moving on to another specialist would get me seated faster, I was game. In the back of my mind I still had a nagging feeling telling me to just wait.
Trouble Looms
So I am taken, not to a reclining isolated oasis like the woman I saw in the corner, but instead to a stool located almost centrally  in the store where everyone could have an opportunity to witness my treatment. Still I decided not to make a big deal of it and just take it like a champ. As I mounted the seat that seemed to barely support my derriere, I carefully rested my arm on the  wobbly  table that sat adjacent to my seat. I was less than pleased with my initial experience, but I wanted to be a trooper and I told myself not to sweat the small stuff. I reassured myself that I would have a fabulous facial with an equally efficient skin care specialist! As I waited for the specialist to return I saw her walking towards me with a woman with wonky eye makeup and I thought...NO, NOOOOOOO, veer left, veer left- she can't be the one who is going to assist me. Yup, she certainly was and as she greeted me with warm pleasantries her Newport laden breath assaulted me through browning teeth. I kept thinking of cigarette singed fingers touching my makeup free skin and I cringed. She was quite pleasant but with each word spoken I found myself stopping my air supply to reject her relentless assault. Her hands were clean and she did a fair job, but I just kept thinking of what could have been as I saw the other specialist prepare a sample and send off her happy client.
Sitting there I wondered why I often get the raw end of the stick, out of all the specialists in there, I was stuck with the one who felt comfortable looking me in the eye and saying ..."All done, you look great" even though as shown in the picture below, I have white cream lining my black eye browns.....grrrrrrrrr. Cotton ball fragments also graced my lashes but I managed to get those off before exiting the store.
I am not one to hurt someone's feelings and I saw that she was really proud of her work but ummmmmm next time, if there is a next time, let's just say she won't be touching my face.
I decided to go against my gut and try an in-store service, typically I never go this route because I am leery of the sanitary conditions under which my skin will be subjected. Nevertheless I threw caution to the wind and look what it got me! On the bright side, I did get a bag of free beauty goods, I tried something that I wouldn't typically do  and I get to go home and wash my face.... **insert happy dance**
Have you ever had a facial or makeup makeover at Sephora? If so, please share your experience.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for watching.
