As I'm sitting here watching the Grammys...

My son was just jumping up and down to Chris Brown's performance, lol I think he wants to be a performer...actually he tells me he wants to be Sir Topham Hatt when he grows up...if you don't know who that is, its safe to say that you don't have any kids.

I'm so sad about the Whitney news, I feel as though a part of my childhood has left.  As I was growing up Whitney Houston was my grandmother's FAVORITE artist of all time, Whitney could do NO wrong in her eyes and I grew up listening to all of her music because of my grandmother.  Not to mention having my grandmother take me to all of the movies Whitney was in.  My grandmother passed away last year, and that was extremely tough, actually, not WAS...IS extremely tough for this has just resurfaced memories that I didn't want to surface at this point in time. My prayers go out to Bobbi Kristina.

In brighter news, I wanted to share a few things....

I see a lot of bloggers with GREAT nails and designs.  I'm always amazed at the creativity.  I'm not at that point yet because I can't keep my hands still enough to dry properly.  However, my "Work-Spouse" and I stumbled across Sinful Colors Professional Nail Enamel at Rite Aid for $1.99...I took Marketing classes in college so packaging and presentation is very important to me, $1.99 nail polishes aren't that rare but usually the presentation (bottle) is blah. I liked the bottle and the display case that SCP was in  and there is a wide range of colors as well as "nail art" polishes for the same amount.  Me and my "W-S" are now addicted.  I usually paint them and just top it off with a top coat, maybe one of these days when I don't have my son I'll attempt to do a design. 

Also, Coconut Oil and Shea Butter...I used to have natural hair, but I am relaxed now.  During my natural hair days I ONLY used natural products in my hair, now that I am relaxed, the majority of the products I use are still natural.  Coconut Oil and Shea butter have my roller sets looking brand new days later.  They are GREAT moisturizers and AMAZING deep conditioners. 
My family also has a history of bad skin, mainly eczema...the way that I keep it under control for my son and I are through using Shea Butter and Coconut oil, they are excellent for your skin as well.  Also these products are not expensive at all and last a while.  Its also great that they are great for skin and hair care, two birds one stone.

Also one more tip, when picking out skin and hair products, pay attention to the ingredients, if you cant pronounce most of them, re-think the purchase.  As for hair, I would say stay away from products that have mineral oil  (or a high amount of it) because it clogs pores. 

:) Hope you enjoyed....Also the contest is still open, a winner will be announced on the evening of 2/14/12...Good Luck!


  1. I love Sinful Colors nail polish! They have so many colors to choose from! I used to buy a couple of bottles every time I went to the BSS. Now I think I need to cut back a bit lol. I also use Shea Butter for my skin and Coconut Oil for my hair. Coconut Oil is excellent in deep conditioners and sealing my moisturizers in. Love it!

  2. I am a former nail tech (and instructor), and when I traded my long nails, nail art, and lack of insurance for diapers, wipes, and a 9 to 5 - I didn't back. Now that the kids older, they are still short, but I am having fun with color again! I did yellow this weekend, and I'll have to check out the Sinful Colors... the price sounds like a win!

  3. lol Drea I thought I might've been the only one to know about sinful colors as if it was my own little secret....Socamom if you do en up doing a design I hope you post it on your blog, I cant wait to see :)
