I ordered these shoes from LOFT about two weeks ago, and they were 40% off. They are an insanely sparkly mass of charcoal colored glitter.
Most definitely the prettiest (and highest) heels I own. They will be on my feet NYE :)

OPI polishes in Designer...De Better! & Crown Me Already

I'm still not tired of the "accent nail." I painted my ring fingers with the silvery glitter polish, and the rest of my nails glistened with the silvery taupe. Other colors like milky pink, deep purple, and mint are on my list to pair with the silver glitter accent nail. Mere's nails are also on my radar. I think it's so festive for the Winter season, don't you? Again, my nails will be painted this way for New Years.

On another note, I think I'm going to finally give in and get a professional manicure. I pride myself on my ability to take good care of my nails, but this weather is wreaking havoc on my poor, dry hands. I slather them in oils, salves, and lotion but nothing seems to cure the dryness. I think I overwash my hands, but I am terrified of germs and illness this time of year. Any suggestions for me, or any standout products that you girls use?

  1. Cute, cute, cute! The nail colors are cute, too. I totally love the shea butter hand creme by L'Occitane.

  2. Gigi: Thanks for the rec ;)

  3. i am wearing crown me already on my middle finger on each hand, love it :)

  4. I've been using my Moroccan Oil on my hands at night before bed lately. It's been working really well, especially on my haggard cuticles.

  5. Tara: When I saw them on your blog, I knew they had to be mine!

    Girlie Blogger: Thank you :)

    V: It's so pretty! I love that it goes opaque quickly too, and the glitter isn't sparse at all.

    MavJen: I have tons of Moroccan oil left, and I sadly neglect using it on my hair. I've never thought to try it on my dry skin. Thank you for this suggestion, I will definitely give it a go!

  6. OMG I love your shoes. They're so sparkly!!! Happy Holidays!

  7. LOVE the shoes! Gorgeous! And nail polishes are so pretty.

  8. I'm all about sparkles and glitter too! Like you, I have very dry hands and am constantly putting lotion on my hands! I usually mix a little bit of Vitamin E oil with my hand lotion (I like Gold Bond because it's very thick and moisturizing). www.casualglamorous.com

  9. oh my gosh, i think i just fell in love with your shoes! sooooo pretty.


  10. Love the heels and the nails! Can't wait to see your NYE OOTD ;) x, tasha

  11. Your nails look amazing, I wish I could paint mine so nicely by myself!

    I still haven't found a HG handcream - the only thing that works for my hands at the moment is using something moisturizing and then sealing it in with a layer of vaseline overnight.

    For cuticles, Burts Bees lemon butter is amazing :-)

  12. I got a pro mani with Designer...De Better & am obsessed. I'll be buying it soon.

  13. I'm def going to check out the glitter polishes! Love both!

  14. Oooh love the sparkle! Winter Wonderland indeed :) Hope you had a fabulous Christmas!

    love from San Francisco,
