New Blog Home...Last OnSugar Post

02Nov10

 

I wanted to take the time out to thank everyone for being so supportive of AddictedToAllThingsPretty.com.  You ladies (and dudes too) are some of the best readers a blogger can ask for.  As I embark on my 1,000th blog entry I felt that it was time to move the blog to WordPress.  I wanted to create a better subscriber experience as well as give the readers more options and streamline things.  Below are a few tips to help you transition with us as well as some tips to help you navigate the new site, and description of a few features.

<p> Peace, Love & Lipstick,
Krissy

New "Love & Glamour" fragrance by Jennifer Lopez

28Oct10


A showstopper, this starlet reflects the elegantly extravagant, luxurious side of Jennifer Lopez. Surging with sparkling, juicy top notes, Love & Glamour lingers with a sexy bouquet of floral mid notes before wrapping you up in a smoldering musky dry down.

Top Notes: Italian Mandarin, Guava, Nectarine Pulp
Mid Notes: Waterlily, Cocount Orchid, Orange Flower Absolute, Jasmine Petals
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Sensual Musk, Sleek Amber

BOTTLE & CARTON

Inspired by the confident and voluptuous physique of a woman, the sculptured bottle is washed in a palette of soft gold and delicate rose, a feminine, yet striking contrast. Adding a touch of glam with a jewel‐like cap, the bottle embodies Jennifer’s undeniable star power.

The carton design, with its bold star imprint bursting with sparkling stardust, personifies the essence of passion and glamour while continuing to embrace the “bling” Jennifer has always been identified with.

COLLECTION
Eau de Parfum 75 mL/2.5 fl oz SRP: $58.00
Eau de Parfum 50 mL/1.7 fl oz SRP: $49.50
Body Lotion 200 mL/6.7 fl oz SRP: $27.50

Nails: Quick and easy Halloween nail design

28Oct10

1. Start with the base coat of your choice

2. Apply 2 coats of white nail polish (I used China Glaze “Snow).  Be sure to do thin coats and allow it to dry between coats.

3. Using a nail design dotter tool or toothpick dot the darkest shade of orange.  Do this for all nails, then move to the pale shade or orange, followed by your bright shade of yellow, and finally the pale shade of yellow.

 

Deep orange:  OPI “Flit a Bit”

Pale orange:  China Glaze “Peachy Keen”

Bright yellow:  L.A. Girl “Bright Yellow

Pale yellow:  Sally Hansen “Yellow Kitty”

NOTE:   If you want your nails to appear longer, reverse the order and start with the lightest shade of yellow first.

 

4. If your dots are thick (such as mine were) allow your nails to dry for about 10 minutes prior to applying your topcoat to avoid streaking.  Also limited the amount of time your run your brush over your nails.

"My Momma Has Good Hair" video + My 5 cents

27Oct10

 

<object height="340" width="560" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZDiuFmmiCFg?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"> <param name="data" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZDiuFmmiCFg?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /> <param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ZDiuFmmiCFg?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0" /> <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /> </object>

 

When this video came my way I honestly thought that Momma Good-Hair was going to have a full healthy head of hair.  I imagined a huge ‘fro.  Sadly, none of that came across my screen.  The only thing I see here is a sad, delusional, misguided African American Indian American Cherokee and Blackfoot Indian woman.  I’m sure Princess (if Kimmaytube is the queen I'm assuming she's the princess) Satin Bonnet plays in Momma Good-Hair’s hair all day with that hard brush.   I’m not sure why she felt the need to do a Youtube video attempting to prove that she’s mixed based upon a hair type O_o.  Learn to love yourself, your hair, and your African American race.

Winter Skin Taboo...Chapped Nipples and All That Stuff

27Oct10

IMAGE SOURCE

 

Once again it’s time to get personal.  Not the one to shy away from taboo topics, I figured we can kick off the fall/ winter season with something good.  What better way than to talk about skin care tips?  Let me warn you now (just in case you didn’t expect it from the title of this post)…some of the things discussed in this post are of an adult nature.  So, we just experienced our first storm of the season this past weekend.  It didn’t put a damper on the weekend but I noticed that it really took its toll on my skin in the most undesirable way and it had me thinking, “why don’t we ever blog about this issues?  I know I’m not the only one.”  These are just a few unexpected skincare issues to be prepared for.

 

Chapped/ chaffed Nipples

Chapped chaffing nipples can happen anytime but once it gets cooler it seems to get worse.  Consider cotton bras and maybe even a nipple balm.  Nipple balms aren’t restricted to nursing mothers.  They’re also inexpensive.  Try Avado Organics Nipple Care Balm at Target for around $10 or Udderly Smooth Udder Cream for around $5.00.

 

Alligator Heels

Cold, wind and dry cracked heels don’t mix.  Running the heater also dries the skin.  If you have a bad case of foot callus try Be Natural Callus Eliminator for around $13.00 at Sally’s.  To maintain smooth feet be sure to exfoliate weekly.

 

Dry ‘Gina and Chaffing

Sounds crazy but your ‘gina ages and can also become dehydrated and dry.  You should be moisturizing your ‘gina when you moisturize your body to keep it moisturized and hydrated.  Be sure to sure a natural moisturizer such as Nature’s Gate Pomegranate Moisturizer (if you like creams) or Jason’s Pure Beauty Oil.  A great product for chafing is Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel (which can found at most drug stores and major retailers).

Zoya "Fire & Ice" Collection has a new name!

26Oct10

But don’t worry ladies…the colors are still the same.  Zoya's "Fire & Ice" collection is now called Zoya "Flame"I’m not sure what prompted the name change see update below.  This collection was officially released October 1st and has been appearing on blogs since September.  None the less, the colors look nice from the promo pics.  I’ll have swatches of these colors up within the next couple weeks.  I’m surprised that Zoya haven’t already used names like Tiffany, Lisa, Sarah, Gloria, Crystal, and Valarie.  Will Krissy ever come up?

UPDATEThere was a conflict with a previously trademarked name so they changed it.

Side note:  There seems to be a little confusion as to what’s been causing information to be delayed or not received at all for Zoya collection releases.  But I’ve been assured that everything has been resolved.
