SinfulColors Review!

If you are a nail polish girl then you have heard of the company SinfulColors and know that they have a wonderful selection of nail polish that is sold for just $1.99 a bottle which is a steal because who wants to spend $5+ on nail polish? SinfulColors recently came out with their 2014 Holiday collection which features gorgeous colors such as Outta Space, Snow Me White & Cinderella.

I was recently sent four bottles of nail polish to test out for review, I was sent Galax-Sea, Twilight Twinkles, Out Of This World, & Endless Blue.These polishes apply smoothly without any bubbles or large streaks which is nice for someone like me who has an issue with keeping streaks out of their polish. Both Twilight Twinkles and Galax-Sea are jam packed with glitter which makes the polish pop. Galax-sea is a green glitter mixture with a few golden/red flakes, Twilight Twinkles is a clear coat packed with gold glitter, Out of this world is a sheer glittery silver that looks like a lightly fallen snow and Endless Blue is a dark royal blue that almost has a purple hue to it in certain lighting. The polish scent is light and non irritating to the senses. I've been wearing this polish for almost a week and a half now and only some nails are slightly chipped which is pretty good considering my hands get bumped a lot at work.

Above you can see Endless Blue & Out of this world by themselves along with Twilight Twinkles and Galax-sea over a solid polish color.The SinfulColors 2014 holiday line features 22 radiant shades that can be found in aWalgreens near you! Head over to their Facebook and Twitter pages to find out more information on where to find these polishes.

Celebrate Christmas with HoneyBaked!

One of the most stressful things about the holidays is figuring out what to eat for Christmas Dinner, and who is going to cook what then you have to do the actual cooking after opening gifts. I rather spend the day relaxing with my family, watching my kids play with their new toys but I also want to have a nice Christmas dinner, so what should I do? HoneyBaked has the answer.

The Ham that HoneyBaked sells is heavenly they also sell a number of pre-made sides that can be served as is or just needs to be placed in the oven for a little while which takes all the stress out of cooking for the holidays. I recently visited my local HoneyBaked store which is the Paradise Vally location located at 4635 E Cactus Rd Phoenix, AZ 85032 near PV mall. When I visited it was a quite morning just before noon and the store looked clean, welcoming and smelled great all of the displays were well put together and the way everything was set up really made you look around at everything they had to offer. Half of the store was to purchase their products such as Turkey and Sweet potatoes and the other half is a Cafe where you can buy lunch.

I picked up the following items: Honey baked ham slices, Sweet Potato Soufflé, Green Bean Casserole, Turkey Gravy, Rolls, and for dessert we bought a pumpkin roll. We were going to go with the traditional Pumpkin pie but the store was sold out so we went with a sweet and similar alternative. The products we bought was enough to happily fill six adults and two children, plus we had some left overs. The ham, sweet potatoes and green beans along with the gravy needed to be heated up before they could be served, in all it took about 45 minutes for everything to bake which still cuts down on prep and cook time if you were to make these items yourself. The hams that they sell are smoked for over twenty hours and are coated with their signature sweet-crunchy glaze which gives it a sweet and almost brown sugar taste which leaves the meat tender and juicy. The sweet potatoes are some of the best I've ever had and I can't get enough of them, I would visit their store just for the Sweet Potato Soufflé. The green beans were good and didn't taste like frozen green beans they tasted fresh! and the Pumpkin roll was sweet and amazing I would recommend their food to anyone looking for something delicious to eat this holiday or just stop by for lunch. I stopped by for lunch a few days ago and had one of their ham sandwiches that features their signature ham and I absolutely loved it.

From now until 1/11/15 you can enter to win a $25,000 HoneyBaked Kitchen Makeover when you buy a Ham and Turkey Breast bundle.
