Hey guys!
I hope you all have enjoyed your holidays and ushered in the new year safely. My holiday was peaceful and enjoyable. I haven't posted much over the holidays because I have kept busy. However, I still wanted to update you guys on a couple of things:

My new nails: rounded nails ,the moons are painted with 1 coat of Sinful's Dream on...the newer version-D02/D04
(needed 2/3 coats, but this was a new challenge for the nail tech =p )
1 coat of Maybelline's Pot of Gold over Cleopatra

*An alternative to Maybelline's P.O.G., try Sally Girl new Chunky Gold Glitter polish

An FOTD and newest fave blush I didn't do any special looks over the holidays, but the FOTD that I wore most while running my errands was this one- neutrals with a blue liner on my waterline. The blush that's stolen my heart is MAC's Blushbaby. Such a sweet, innocent blush for every day wear. Someone long ago recommended it on the blog, but then I wasn't interested in shy, subtle blush tones then. Now, I'm all over it ;)

Nevermind my dry lips plz ;( And why do I refuse to use brow gel??

Random cute pics of the sis/Teen Yummy411 She's diggin those huge nerd glasses and her Mp3 player (the one that she got about 3 years ago and never used. Go figure.)

The kidYum admires his aunt and all things 'teenager'. He loves that she goes to a military school and wants to practice twirling guns and gun salutes *crosses eyes* I knew he'd flip over her glasses, so he got a pair of his own. This is on Christmas day. We went to see the Princess and the Frog. 'Son, you have to take off your glasses inside so you can see.' =p

HAPPY 2010!!

Oh're nails are hot! Thank you for taking my mind off Jennifer Le's Louboutin Nails (from 2 Bitchez Deep)! Also, your sister look so cute! I think I might have to look into that blush. I haven't been wearing it lately but the choices that I have are too loud. I need something subtle.
