KBShimmer Un-brrr-lievable – PPU & IPU December 2019

KBShimmer Un-brrr-lievable – PPU & IPU December 2019

Hi all and Happy December! I hope that you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and that you survived Black Friday/Cyber Monday relatively unscathed. I had one helluva a weekend! I finally moved out of the place I had called home for eons and parted ways with my baby brother (who is 29!). He has been living with me pretty much since he was 18 so I can imagine that it will be a huge adjustment for him. On my end, as much as I love him, I was ready to push him (violently) out of the nest. My current living situation is complicated to say the least and it will be around 4-6 months before I can move in to my new permanent place. Trust me, it’s more messy than you can even begin to imagine. To top it all off, I got sick in the middle of all of this and now I’m a snot-filled mess with a cough that doesn’t let me sleep. As always, the timing is impeccably putrid. Since I don’t have much good news today, I’m just going to get to it and share my swatches of KBShimmer Un-brrr-lievable which is this month’s PPU offering. Let’s take a look!

KBShimmer License To Chill Collection

Hey all! I hope that you had a great Thanksgiving, if you celebrate Thanksgiving that is. I had a nice time with my family with tons of delicious food. I am not planning to do any crazy Black Friday shopping since I’m in full MOVE OUT mode. I am moving tomorrow so things are super hectic and I just want to get done with everything. I am NOT looking forward to it, but I have my brothers helping clear everything out so I just have to take it one step at a time. For today’s post, I wanted to share the new KBShimmer License To Chill Collection so let’s get to it! Continue reading “KBShimmer License To Chill Collection”

Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? – PPU November 2019

So Halloween is in a couple of days…do you have any Halloween plans? I am pretty much over Halloween and am not planning on dressing up or doing anything. Not too many kids come around my neighborhood for candy so I know that if I buy any, I will end up eating it all myself–so I won’t be buying any too much. What is your favorite candy? Not long ago I posted on Instagram regarding controversial candy such as Circus Peanuts, Candy Corn and Bit O’Honey because I wanted to know if you liked them or not. How do you feel about these three candies? Anyway, enough about candy! Today I have Pepper Pot Polish Why So Grimm? to share with you. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

KBShimmer Up & Autumn Collection – Fall 2019

Hey guys! How’s your Monday going so far? I actually just wrapped up a week-long vacation that was sorely needed, and now I have to get back into the rhythm of work. I wish I had taken 2 weeks instead of 1, but I have tons of work so I’d rather not let things pile up or get out of control. The last few days have been kind of warm here in SoCal which is rather typical. Since it’s technically fall, I have a great Fall collection to share with you today. The KBShimmer Up & Autumn Collection for Fall 2019 is full of so many great shades and a lot of different finishes. Let’s take a look at my swatches below!

KBShimmer Hidden Agenda – PPU & IPU October 2019

KBShimmer Hidden Agenda – PPU & IPU October 2019

Oooof! I know I have been away forever but I have excuses! First of all, I’ve been super busy at work and that left me completely exhausted to the point that I had no time for anything else. Second, I turned 40…and well, that was just a non-event. Lastly, I’ve just been kinda sad and feeling dumpy so I just haven’t felt like doing much. I actually did a bunch of swatching but didn’t even have the will to write up posts and edit photos until now. I am starting to feel a little more motivated to get stuff done so I hope to have a bunch of reviews up soon. Today I have KBShimmer Hidden Agenda and an interesting sugar scrub to share with you so lets get on with it! Continue reading “KBShimmer Hidden Agenda – PPU & IPU October 2019”

KBShimmer Something Wicca This Way Comes – PPU & IPU September 2019

Wow, is it really September already? Later this month I will be turning the big 4-0. To tell you the truth, it doesn’t feel like such a momentous occasion since I’ve always felt like an old soul. I’m not expecting any big changes just because I’ll be turning 40, but I do feel like I’ll have to step up my skincare regimen! For today’s post, I have two awesome products to share with you. First up, we have KBShimmer Something Wicca This Way Comes which is a fun and complex magnetic polish. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.

Today I’m sharing with you KBShimmer Mirror Mirror In The Stall which will be available soon through Polish Pickup. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
