Stella Chroma: The Words of Dumbledore collection, Spring 2020

Good morning friends!  Hope you have a lovely weekend. It's going to be a hectic week for me starting out with a 7:30am conference at school this morning.  My younger kids get out early all week while my oldest is on regular schedule so I'll be shuttling back and forth one extra trip than usual, oh joy.  But really I'm just glad to have a healthy house going in to the week - all my kids were battling sniffles and fevers and coughs last week.  But what does that have to do with today's post?  Nothing.   So let's talk about the post.  If you've followed Stella Chroma for any length of time you will know she is a huge fan of all things Harry Potter.  The Words of Dumbledore collection is a set of 5 beautiful polishes that you can purchase as a set for $54 or individually for $12 each.  And you can still use my code MNPO to save 15%!  Let's jump in to the post.

February 2020 PPU & IPU: Flora & Fauna

Afternoon y'all!  It's been a fairly unproductive Wednesday for me.  Had to take the baby to the doctor (he's ok) then decided to get a spur of the moment pedi.  But it wasn't really spur of the moment because I was in jeans and tennis shoes and didn't have any of my own polishes to take so I made a stop at home first to remedy all those problems.  I guess I'm embracing Spring, even though it's my least favorite season, and went with a soft, shimmery, shifty pink.  But you're here to find out about the upcoming PPU and IPU!  February is Flora & Fauna themed...good theme for Valentine's Day and Spring!  The nice thing is that you're not just going to get bombarded with pinks and purples (thank GAWD).  I'm seeing blues and greens and grey and even a yellow and orange!  The Pickups will be open from 2/7 - 2/10.  Don't forget to shop early to get those capped items you really want!

The Makers Dozen, January 2020: Alter Ego - Child Idol

Good morning friends!  Can you believe I have 2 posts 2 days in a row!  Who am I?? This one will be a quickie so you definitely have time for it before running out the door to get to work or start your errands!  First, I must share the news that Makers Dozen will be no more.  January is their last month.  If you do want a bottle of Child Idol by Alter Ego you should swing by her shop to pick one up.  I perused her site last night and noticed there was no listing, but after conferring with another blogger it seems it was never offered this month so I'm guessing that since Cynthia is on a vacation she will list it when she returns. The January theme was Celebrity and Cynthia went with Smurfs.  You can pick up Child Idol for $10 and can save 20% using my code My Nail Polish Obsession!  Let' jump in!

Cheeky Physique: Matcha Eye Cream

Hi friends!  January has not been a nice month to me.  I'm ready to move on to February and all that I'm planning to accomplish.  For one thing I am going to try meal planning.  I know it's going to be a lot to tackle on already busy Sundays but I have to stop this convenience eating.  I also need to curb my sweet tooth!  I NEED to re-motivate myself to running.  So I'm already signed up for 2 races in the near future.  I also need to get back to loving blogging.  Or get behind the decision to switch to Instagram swatches only.  Do any of my friendly and supportive readers have an opinion on that?  Do you think blogs have died out and Instagram pics are the way to go?  

While we mull over those questions let's just get in a post.  This is the Cheeky Physique Matcha Eye Rescue.  I have been using it religiously, most times twice a day for almost 2 solid months. You can purchase Cheeky Physique products on Amazon or their own website.  The Matcha Eye Rescue is $36 and you get free shipping when you spend $50.  Read on for my thoughts and review on this eye cream.

KBShimmer; White Here White Now & Total Eclipse

Morning dears!  Back with a really short post for you.  Right before Christmas KBShimmer launched some staples that everyone needs in their nail polish arsenal.  A set gorgeous, creamy shades - black and white.  These have a fantastic formula and look awesome on the nails.  You can use them just to paint, for art or stamping.  Throw on some matte topcoat for a different look!  White Here White Now and Total Eclipse are both available now for $10 each.  Both shades have the new fan brush, which I find to be fabulously easy to use. Let's check them out.
