This post was done in partnership with JUVÉDERM®, and Allergan Canada however as always, all opinions are my own. How can one year be the best and worst in your entire life?

Though it’s a bridal boutique, don’t be fooled if you’ve already tied the knot (or aren’t in the bridal space), MRS has some beautiful accessories that I always love to browse (from purses to jewelry to beautiful lingerie). Since the next prompt for the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge is #mynailandmybag,…

Happy Saturday lovely readers! Today’s prompt for the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge is: WEATHER. I struggled with this one a little and had a few ideas, but I settled on lightning nails, as I had a few lightening nail vinyls from Snail Vinyls to use. It’s also supposed to thunderstorm in Toronto tonight, so I thought these nails would be weather appropriate. I wanted to…

Today I’ve been playing with fire and this is the result…OUCH! OK so obviously I didn’t REALLY light my nails on fire, but since today’s prompt for the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge is: FLAMES, I created some FIRE NAILS.

Unfortunately the beauty…

After a weekend away with the fam, I seemed to have fallen slightly behind in the OMD3 Nail Art Challenge. We’re past half way – day 20/31 and I’ve got to be honest, I’m starting to lose steam….but I will persevere, catch up and complete the challenge. Is anyone else with me? I know the good thing about this challenge is that you don’t have to…

For those who have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I’m a lipstick junkie and that I’m also a sucker for gorgeous packaging.
