FingerNails, Long and Luscious, with Holiday Colours Worth Getting from CND Review

fingernails-long-luscious-cnd-1

My finger nails are something I always have! It’s just one element that goes into being me!

Long luscious fingernails that I feel finish and compliment my hands. Something I know a lot of other women feel the same way, just as they do about their hair. For me its all about the total ook from top to bottom.

Yes I’m high maintenance, but it’s maintenance I look after no one else. I choose it, so I work on it! Starting from my health from the inside out, eat right, trips to the gym, my hair, make-up, clothes and the finer things. 

Again my fingernails are no exception to that rule, and I’ve added them to my schedule of monthly maintenance! It’s a treat I give to myself and I’m very appreciative of that fact, to be able to treat myself to some of these finer things in life I covet. I work hard, and some would say I play hard. Meh! 

I’m also very appreciative when I get invited to attend new and or improved product release events, and I do my best to inform everyone what they are all about! The latest and greatest of such is the newest by #cnd for their #cndglacialillusion a line of glittery soft pastel colours with a new and improved formula for the release of their holiday colours and the exciting polish up-keep line for longer lasting wear if you don’t have gels or acrylics. These new items are offered in gel application and regular polish. I chose the gel application of “alpine plum”  to go along with acrylics. Applied at the @prepbeautyparlour an acrylic free salon, that has some lovely interiors to seriously relax in, mine was applied by the lovely @nailsbyhaya

This turned out be a great morning and love the glass finish! 

 

 

Happy  upcoming Holidaze everyone!!! 💋🖤🖤

Art In the Eyes of the Beholder, That’s What Sexy This Week

Beauty truly is in the eyes of the beholder, and art is subject to the same, the interpretations of each and every individual person. The personal tastes of one person are completely different from that of the next, what I like as art, you may not. I try to find beauty in all I see, if not the whole picture, then an element or two of it. I’m busy keeping myself stimulated, inspired, and motivated to keep the dreams alive. Appreciating the creations produced for my enjoyment, art in the eyes of the beholder, that’s what sexy this week.

 

sexy-this-week-art-in-the-eye-of-the-beholder-leonardo-davinci-mona-lisaSpeaking for myself, I have a very different way of approaching life that not many people ascribe to. I’m busy trying to find beauty wherever I go and in whatever I see. From the animate to the inanimate, and some art, just like some people, can be down right ugly! Yes I said it, people can be ugly as well, and I do my best not to dwell on that and move on when it’s clear there is no beauty to behold.

Art appreciation makes it easier to find that beauty, that stimulation, inspiration and motivation, to be emotionally moved from the enjoyment. To observe grande scale works and be captivated from a single element that draws the viewer into a world of fantasy. To invoke  memories from the past, or grow ideas for the future. To be blown away by awe-inspiring, images, paintings and sculptures.sexy-this-week-art-in-the-eye-of-the-beholder-mona-lisa-punk-rock

To not just see, but literally taste, touch, smell and hear the colours, as the vibrancy comes alive. Story telling through engaging imagery to play on and in the mind of the beholder, a distraction from the possibility of the daily mundane. To find if not one, but many elements of beauty and be forever stimulated, inspired, and motivated to keep the dreams alive.sexy-this-week-art-in-the-eye-of-the-beholder-Mona-Lisa-Makeover

Art for art’s sake for all to enjoy.

  

Sexy This Week: The Beauty of Ages

Carmen Dell'orefice

As time ticks on, so do we and in the words of a David Bowie song

“Pretty soon now you’re gonna get older
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time”

Poetic words to live by and let’s be honest we are all fighting it to some degree, and if not gracefully, then pretty damn ugly. I am no “negative nelly” when it comes to having the services of a cosmetic surgeon attend to my upkeep, hell no! I am all for it, but there are definitely times when going overboard looks as though you’ve been out to sea for months on end, stranded by yourself in a dingy with nothing else but you and your urine. In other words a hot mess!!

Tidbits; Shit, Shower, and a Shave

velvet-1

I’ve been asked the question; “what do you do to keep looking the way you do?” many times, and I’ve gone through the answer at great length many times, so I thought I would share a little bit of that here.

Looking and feeling good takes time and effort, so yes, it does bother me when folks tell me; “it’s easy for you to get up and look they way you do!”, another statement I get a lot of. Well let me tell you, just like everyone else, I have to get up in the morning and do the proverbial shit, shower and shave! I apologize for the crass description, but it’s a saying we’ve all heard many times before and is the perfect way to describe it.

Agreed, good genetics do a play a part, but for me, cosmetically, I’ve also done a few things along the way to look the way I want by improving on what I was given at birth. These are things that I chose to do, not anyone else, I am my own mind and body able to make my own decisions. (more…)
