Stella Chroma Hella Handmade Creations, May 2018 - Queen of Thorns

Evening all!  Wanted to jump on the blog tonight to share a beautiful polish with you!  You may have noticed that the Hella Holo Customs group made a change last month, they are now the Hella Handmade Customs group.  I can only guess that means the polishes don't have to be holographic and it's opened up the products to other handmade goods.  They also changed the way they do sales, not 2 sellers a month, but multiple sellers that pick a theme and create polishes to release individually over multiple months.  Stella Chroma went with Game of Thrones as her inspiration, specifically the strong women from GoT.  The first one is Queen of Thorns, inspired by Lady Olenna.  You'll be able to purchase this polish from 5/14 - 5/21 and it will be first of 6 polishes paying tribute to the Queens of Westeros.  Queen of Thorns will be $12.

All the shades I have in this post are $12, I will mention which are available and which are sold out at the moment.

Today was a nice day.  The weather was perfect.  I visited with my grandpa.  My kids were all good.  Thank you Tuesday for not being awful.  I'm back to the old blog and chain tonight with a quickie post featuring a super fun plate from Born Pretty.  Took me a little while to really get decent at stamping and I feel that I am no longer a novice at it.  Maybe I'll start trying to double stamp and reverse stamp.  I think I can do it!  Anyways, this is a great little gemstone plate, lots of loose stones and jewelry and all kinds of fun.  I can't seem to locate this particular stamping plate but there are so many fun ones in the shop right now!  You can save 10% using my code JTOW10.  Alright, let's check it out.

Good afternoon!  Hope your Thursday is going well.  I just got home with all my kiddos and pretty soon will be off to my taxi mom life.  But with the Polish Pickup starting tomorrow I want to show you one last polish I have.  It's a stunner from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer and it was inspired by one of my all time favorite shows, Charmed.  Personally, I liked the show better when Shannen Doherty was on it but oh well, guess she's hard to work with.  Anyways, if you were out of the loop, the May PPU theme is all about the 90's!  You'll be able to purchase BEGL The Ancient Power from 5/4 - 5/7 for $12, no cap.  Are you ready?  The power of three will set us free.....

Beauty Review: Glossier

Oh hai! Guess what?  I have yet another beauty product review for you! Hey you know, sometimes it gets tiring to only do nail polish all the time!  I like skin care and makeup and bath products as much as the next guy and gal.  So I have to tell you that back in the summer I was on the hunt for some serums.  They were all the rage and I wanted in on the fun.  Well after lots of Amazon and Instagram searching I came across Glossier and was really intrigued...the models looked so clean and shiny and happy.  I wanted to be those models (or at least just clean and shiny and happy).  So I took the plunge and and ordered some stuff.  Ok I'm lying.  I bought a lot.  And I've made more purchases, mostly refill products, because I have been so pleased with the brand!  Glossier is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, paraben free, alcohol free, and they do NOT test on animals.  Their line ranges from skin care and makeup to body and fragrance.  Alrighty, this is a huge post so lets get started.  Oh and if you want to try Glossier you can save 10% today using the link HERE.

Envy Lacquer Bath & Body Products: Soap Envy Jelly Soap & Whipped Soap

Morning beauts!  Since I seem to be on a roll with body care products I figured I'd keep it going with a few products from Envy Lacquer.  Ok here's the deal though, I purchased these from the Indie Shop San Francisco which was back in August or September of 2017.  Yes, I still have untried stuff from then, but these I tried almost immediately because they were so interesting.  I've just been too swamped with deadlines to post them.  The Envy brand is currently being revamped so the website is empty at the moment but there's an ETA of March 24th to reopen with products, including the Whipped Soap and Jell Soap, YAY!  I totally suggest you try them out as I really enjoyed both.  Even Naomi got quite a laugh from the jiggly soap and it made shower time pretty fun!  And keep an eye on the Indie Shop Page for upcoming events (the March event is sold out).

Skin Care Review; Wild Seeds Utility Cream

Evening dolls!  Sorry for the late post but I had to get out with the fam for a bit and now we are winding down. But I really wanted to get back online to share a post with you featuring natural skin care products that I have been enjoying for a few months now.  Wild Seeds Utility Cream is a small, family owned business that has a line of handmade products, created in beautiful Santa Cruz.  These products are all natural, pesticide and chemical free, and use high quality ingredients including (but not limited to) olive oil, shea butter and essential oils.  The balms feel luxurious, a little goes a long way, but I never feel "greasy" or "oily" just moisturized.  They absorb into my skin quickly also.  You can purchase Wild Seeds products with or without THC oil.  Wild Seeds ships anywhere in the USA, but will be limited to where they can send THC infused products (I believe they can only mail within California as of right now).  Please keep in mind all these products are for topical use only - do not consume them.  With that all said, if you are in the market for some all-natural skin/body balms I'd like to point you in the direction of Wild Seeds Utility Cream!  Let's jump in and we can delve into the products!
