Dee's March Favourites

I have seen a bunch of youtube videos about ‘enter month here’ favourites, so I decided that I kind of want to just incorporate that idea to this blog.. Now, I know that this is my polish endeavours, BUT! My ‘enter month here’ favourites will be about anything, be it nail polish, make up, books, etc – just whatever I was loving for the past month. I am going to try to keep up with it for a bit.. And if anyone else is interested in writing this type of entry, go for it! I will love reading them just as much I do watching them! Here goes.
Dee’s March Favourites
  1. CG Lemon Fizz.. Every time I go to do my nails, I seem to constantly be reaching for that gem, then I have to remind myself that I have other colours to use and then choose something else. For me, it is thus far, my favourite yellow!
  2. CoverGirl Clean Makeup foundation for normal skin (technically I could use oily and/or sensitive, but I went with ‘normal’, and it is perfect!) – I instantly loved the fact that it smelt like Noxzema cream (ahh.. sweet teenaged years spent with jars of that gem-like cream!) Aside from loving the smell, it has actually been working wonders on my skin! I am, of course, the lightest shade, which is Ivory 105.
  3. CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kiy Shadow in Coffee Shop. I pretty much always reach for this, but stopped for awhile because I was using my MAC shadows, but during the month of March, I used this pretty much everyday I wore makeup – specifically eyeshadow. I love it and I am going to have to replace it soon!
  4. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink.. Ok, I have never been a lipstick wearer, let alone a coloured gloss wearer, but I do love this! Funny story, my sister, my brother and myself ran into Shoppers later one evening and my sister dragged us into the makeup section.. My brother saw the Rimmel stand and the lipstick tubes (they are an amazing purple colour) – he said that I should own those because they look awesome, so I whipped mine out of my purse.. And now everytime I use it (which is whenever I go out) I think how my brother actually said I makeup item looked ‘awesome’.
  5. Spectro AcneCare Deep Pore Vanishing Lotion.. I hate the pores on my nose/surrounding area, they are huge and gross (and clogged!) I have been using this lotion for almost a month, and I can actually tell there has been a vast improvement! I am actually quite happy about it. One of the main reasons I use full makeup for my face is because of these HUGE pores, which is ironic because that will only make them worse. I want to get to the point (hopefully for summer when it is quite warm!) where I can slap on some tinted moisturizer and call it a day!
That is about all I can think of that I really turned to for the month of March on a consecutive basis. Sadly it is all beauty-related items. Maybe April will be different!
What are some of your go-to products? I would love to hear about them!!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
