Wear Test Wednesday: Essie Fondant of You

  Recently I mentioned that I’m planning a new series of nail polish wear tests, and I decided to dive right in! My plot to make myself actually wear nail polish is semi-working, at least so far. I recently got a couple colors from the Essie summer collection (kindly provided by the brand) so  today I present to you the first edition: Essie Fondant of You. Fondant of You is a really pretty pastel orange that reminds me of orange sherbet. It’s a great summer color but since  ...

My 3AM Skincare Routine

  Most nights it’s not unusual for my skincare routine to take upwards of 30 minutes – after all, it’s part of my ‘me time’, a chance to wind down after a long day. So bring on the makeup remover, the Clarisonic, the masks, essences, treatments and all that other good stuff. After all, you gotta take care of your skin, right? On the other hand, sometimes I just don’t have the time and energy for all that. Case in point – last week we drove down  ...
