So This is my third Vox Box, and i'm not sure why i haven't mentioned it before, probably because I've been out using the products and living life!! lol
But please accept my apology for being remiss, and let's get Vox'n!!
1. Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream ...
While i'm not one for anti ageing, call it denial or years spent in make up and skin care, but i let it go to the way side. Regenerist is a good product for those looking to tighten a little and firm up a bit.
Use it under your regular moisturizer for optimum benefit... I've been using it for about 2 weeks and i love it, it's not as heavy as i like my moisturizers, but as an anti ager, it works! You can find it at any major retailer.
2. Eco Tools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge
LOVE IT. and trust me that's all you need to hear.
i honestly haven't used this yet, i'm pretty sure it's as advertised, when i do i will let you know!
obviously anything that helps keep messy to a minimum is a positive! ;)
4. Pure Silk Raspberry Mist
Influenster gave me the opportunity to sample the raspberry mist shave cream and I LOVED it. It's CREAM not gel which in my opinion is better because a little covers more surface area. Also I loved the scent it didn't just diminish within seconds.
5. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Baracuda
I'm not a nail whore, and very rarely do my own nails, but i tried.. i frenched with the baracuda on top... and i actually love the color and the texture. I will more than likely be buying more of these in other colors... well hey i know what i like!! ;)
So thanks for listening to my reviews, go pick them up and try them yourself....
Just a small post to thank each and every one of you for making the Decadent Diva a success, I've met some amazing people, created a butt load of delish-ous creations, obviously made up my own linguistics and genuinely had a great time!!
There are a million ideas running rampant in my head on which direction we should go from here, but instead of telling you them all, I'll just let you hang out and wait for em!!
Much love to all you fine wonderful people, and for the the less than, you all keep me on my toes!!
Join me over on my Facebook page to sign up for a fantastic giveaway!
Celebrating birthday's is one of my abso favo thing to do, you should know that by now, so to celebrate one of my favorite friends on her birthday i will be giving away a pair of her on-of-a-kind earrings!!!
(these are mine not the ones for the giveaway lol )
With the Hollywood baby boom in full effect, fashion houses all over the world are competing for who's going to dress these tikes!!
Not to be outdone.... we now have a baby fragrance from one of the swankiest fashion houses. I love Dolce n Gabbana because we carry the same initials and have the same love for classic decor, but a baby fragrance?? I'll let YOU be the judge!! :)
Dolce & Gabbana isn't technically the first fashion house to put out a baby fragrance. Burberry, Bulgari and L'Occitane have all done one too.
"The softness of baby skin, the freshness of baby breath, a mother's sweet hug, [and] the first smile" were inspirations for the scent, meant to enhance the tot's natural smell, Gabbana said. A 50ml bottle, which is tike size bottle in comparison to normal perfume, will set you back $45.
While my travels very rarely take me into the world of extreme sports, I've come across, from a friendly suggestion, this awesome looking event/video premiere and i am going to have to insist that you show your faces and get a lil extreme with me!!!
Plus, it has good music.... and you know me, if it has good jams, i'm so there!
"Tristan Minton, local graffiti artist, skateboard designer (Never Summer), skateboarder and director has been rolling with Denver skate crew, DTS for a long time. Finally, the project he has been working on for what seems like ages, has been completed. H-DTS, a skate video featuring most of the DTS crew, will be premiering on Saturday, December 29th at Bobbo! Warehouse (4120 E. Brighton Blvd. Unit B13). The impressive roster includes: Julian Christianson, (sponsored skateboarder with a list of contest wins and accolades), Cody Schulze, Andrew Smith, Travis Emmite, Phil Hanson, Spencer Semien, and Wyatt Milhollan.
The first showing will be at 7 p.m. sharp with a second showing at 10 p.m. This event is sponsored by Royal Stain, 303 Boards, Boppo! Warehouse, DC Shoes, and KR3W Denim.
Not unlike the Colorado hip-hop community, the Colorado skate world has many talented individuals just dying to get their name out there. Stop by the premier of this no doubt extremely dope video and support an underground community much like your own."
For me, Fall is the best time of year! It means that the shorts and swim suits can be traded in for a cozy sweater and sexy boots. of course, fall FOOD is where I come in!
I am a serious sucker for a caramel apple, unfortunately they are not always the most group friendly or travel friendly food. So in this case, i was having friends over, and instead of making a caramel apple bar, i went for a sort of a nacho version!
Please enjoy and spread the word!
Caramel Apple Nachos
2 large or 3 Medium sized apples ( i used my fave, honey crisp)
1 container of caramel dip (from produce section) or 1 jar of caramel topping (ice cream section)
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup of heavy cream (separated)
2 tsp White Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 Cup walnuts
1. Slice Apples and arrange on plate
2. melt chocolate chips and 1/8 cup of heavy cream over a double boiler. Take off and let cool for a minute or two.
3. Drizzle the Chocolate over the apples.
4. Warm Caramel sauce (or dip) to a drizzable (my new word) consistancy and drizzle over apples, opposite direction of the chocolate you just did.
5. Whip, on high, the remaining heavy cream, vanilla and sugar until it forms peaks.
6. Dollop the whipped cream over the apples, chocolate and caramel.
7. Sprinkle the walnuts over entire dish.
Peanut Butter Chips instead of or in addition to the chocolate ones.
banana and strawberry pieces - banana split nachos!!
And there you have it!
Caramel Apple nachos.
You won't even have to thank me later... i'll take it now in advance!!
