Sinful Nail Polish

I like to browse the make-up aisle and see what I can find. I was looking for a new nail polish and found this Sinful Colors Professional nail polish in Genteel ($1.99, Walgreens). I used this medium soft pink shade for pedicure last week.

I don't always like to wear dark shades for fall and I will sometimes just continue to wear my summer shade such as pink for fall.

Grapefruit Soap from Archipelago Botanicals

I love the citrus smell of grapefruit and this soap by Archipelago Botanicals ($12.50, beautyexclusive.com) smells great. It doesn't dry out my skin and I just love the packaging. The scent is very light and doesn't overwhelm you.

It lathers easily and gives off a soft hint of grapefruit. I tend to splurge every now and then on a good soap but not too often.

Pantene Strengthening Spray

I am all about keeping my hair healthy because sometimes I may overdo it with styling every now and then. So, to keep my hair from getting damaged, I like to use Pantene Pro-V Restorative Strengthening Spray ($3.99, drugstore). I've been using it for about a year off and on when I think my hair may need a little help.

I like it because all I have to do is spray it on after shampooing and conditioning then dry my hair. It's not very expensive but it keeps my hair in good condition. Even though this product is designed for fine or thin hair, I find that it works great for my long and thick hair.

Nail & Cuticle Therapy from Crabtree & Evelyn

Since, I save quite a bit of money doing my own manicure and pedicure which allows me to splurge every now and then on different products. I wanted to try Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Nail & Cuticle Therapy ($12.00, crabtree-evelyn.com) it contains panthenol and keratin to help prevent breakage. I like to use a little bit throughout the day and before I go to bed to keep my cuticles soft and moisturized.

I like this cream because it isn't greasy and dries relatively quick with out any residue leftover.
