The consistency is kind of gel-like and sticky but that is what really seeps into your skin to plump it!

Have you guys heard about Nip and Fab products? If not go out to your local Target or Walgreen's and immediately purchase an item! Lately I've several instagram posts featuring these items but every time I tried to find one they were always sold out. Any how the main items I was looking for were the Glycolic Exfoliating Pads and the Cellulite Fix because I'll admit it I was not born with perfectly smooth legs haha!

After a week of trying the glycolic pads I don't really notice a difference but I like the smell and the way it makes my face feel so I'm going to continue using them once a day. Now the cellulite fix I don't know whether it's me wanting to see results (aka imagining) or if I really am but I honestly think this stuff is working. I cannot say enough good things about this. I have tried skin brushing (crazy but I do it often) and even Bliss Fat Girl Soap (which doesn't work, don't waste your money) Every day after I get out of the shower I put St Ives Collagen lotion on and then take the Cellulite fix and apply it in an upward motion to the backs of the legs. It definitely has reduced the appearance of cellulite, whether it is a short term fix or not I don't know yet. All I know is that I'm hooked!

Nails on point

If you are like me then you love having your nails painted, you also own  too many nail polishes and refuse to have your nails done by a salon on the regular! Lucky for you I happen to know a nail guru who has now saved all of our nails from chipping after day 1!

1st start with clean manicured nails. Even if you don't have any nail polish on to begin with I recommend using an alcohol wipes just to clean the dirt away.

Then start with the nail color you want to use. This time I picked up Nicole "Keep Your Grey Job" it was an essential find on a CVS run this past weekend. Paint one coat of the color and then let dry.

Your next coat is going to be your "gel" coat. I used Essie gel setter. Again paint all your nails and let dry.

 From there move on to 1 more coat of your color then let dry.

The last and final coat will be with whatever top coat you choose. For this I was using OPI top coat but my nail guru said you absolutely have to have to have to use Seche Vite top coat. She told me she wouldn't even paint her nails without this, so that means it's legit and already on order for me :)

Hope you enjoy your new amazing manicure process brought to you by Maggie aka the nail guru!

I love love fall time and football season! Usually when you think of tailgating you think of sweaters and boots and hot chocolate, but with the weather in September in the south you can plan to sweat for the 1st few games. Here are some very cute tailgate outfit options!

VRBO  is best to find a getaway place.

Bud and Alleys Crabcakes are a must here!

The Red Bar Panne chicken is a must. I know it's the beach but get the chicken!

Frost Bites who doesn't love a snowcone?

The best time of day is sunset at 30A beaches. A small glimpse of God's beautiful creations!

The beach is my favorite vacation/relaxation spot is right on the white sands of the 30a beaches. Let's face it those beaches are pretty much perfect if you ask me. September/October is my absolute favorite time of year to head to 30A and it just so happens I have an anniversary in October (perfect weekend getaway!) 

If you have never been to the beaches along the Gulf Coast your truly are missing out on a small piece of heaven! From Orange Beach all the way to Saint Andrews you cannot go wrong. My favorite however is the Santa Rosa, Seaside, Rosemary area. Though it's become much more crowded in the last few years I still love it. And as pitiful as it sounds I just don't feel right unless I can get down there once a year! Above are some of my favorite spots/things about those beaches. If you haven't been you must must must make it down to 30a at some point!

Nailed it!

This fall it's all about rich nail colors, the deeper the shade the better. I usually don't get my nails done professionally since I probably own close to as many nail polishes as the salon (oops!) You will definitely see shades of copper, plum, oxblood, and sapphire everywhere.

Copper OPI here
Oxblood Butter here
