My Home for the Holidays

As I mentioned, I recently moved into my South End apartment and I could not love it more. I was so excited to decorate my new sanctuary as I am extremely into the holiday spirit this year.

I even went so far as to make my own wreath. It was the first try so don't judge too harshly. I wanted to do something with all the flowers and berries of the season and have them dry on the wreath. Home Depot was the spot for overall great pricing with the plain wreath at $10 and our tree $38.
I really loved finding the garland below from Target! Only $3!
Ive been collecting Christmas trees for the past few years!

Gift Guide: A Little Luck Never Hurt Anyone

Slowly but surely, I am knocking everyone off my shopping list this year. Sometimes I get stuck and gift ideas like this one always save the day. Target is one of my favorite places on Earth because of little treasures like this horseshoe wall art from West Emory

I just moved in September and this has perfect energy for my new place. It is also pretty perfect to give to someone who may need a little good fortune.

Originally, the story of the horseshoe superstition begins with the story of a blacksmith named Dunstan. The devil came to Dunstan and had him fit his new horseshoes. Dunstan recognized the devil and nailed a horseshoe onto his hoof. The pain allowed Dunstan to chain him and made him swear he would never enter a place that had a horseshoe hung over the door. Some believe that if guests come to a house where a horseshoe is above the door, they must leave by the same door through which they entered or they will take the luck from the horseshoe with them.

There are many other theories:
  • For luck in the New Year, sleep with a horseshoe under your pillow on New Year’s Eve.
  • The crescent shape of the horseshoe can ward off the evil eye.  
  • There is luck in finding a horseshoe where the open space is facing toward you. 
  • Dreaming of a horseshoe will bring good luck. 
  • Some believe a horseshoe hung in the bedroom will keep nightmares away.

Jewels: MantraBand

I feel like I slowly started to take a break from my normal arm party. However, the urge to drown my wrists in pounds of metal is back in full force. I started the hunt for some new bangles to adorn my empty wrists and found MantraBand . 
A friend of mine had just finished telling me to tattoo Let It Go on my wrists as I was going through a move and the pains of things changing around you in your thirties. Only, I didn't have to get a tattoo. All I needed was this rose gold bangle. Whatever mantra you need to inspire you or just get through the day, they have it. They are available in silver, gold or rose gold at a great price so you can collect and build your collection. They are also adjustable which is nice for my small wrists.

The Nail File: Smith and Cult

If you've read my blog or know me, you know I have a severe nail polish addiction. I own every shade of every color possible yet am always searching for a new, improved formula that will keep my polish from chipping and nail breakage. I just discovered the brand Smith and Cult. The polish goes on smooth and bright with no bumps or thickening while you're painting.

Smith & Cult was created by beauty junkie Dineh Mohajer who launched the favored line Hard Candy. The lacquer is custom tailored to provide high performance with its exclusive 5-Free formula creating a glossy shine and vibrance. The bottle is also pretty darn cool and eye-catching. Your nails will thank you.

In order; Kundalini Hustle, Tenderoni, Bang the Dream. All $18 at Smith and Cult.

Must Have: Living Proof Night Cap

Being platinum blonde isn't easy folks. I love my lightened locks but the process has sure reeked havoc on my hair. The breakage and dryness has definitely changed the way I care for my hair. My stylist Laura Kuhns at Avanti Salon takes great measures in the dying process. She applies oil before coloring and a heavy gloss after. I also use color-treated shampoo and conditioner along with a silver shampoo once a week to maintain brightness.
My saviour though is Living Proof's Night Cap Repair. On nights before I shampoo, I slather my locks with this restoring treatment until morning. Night Cap creates enhanced shine, vibrancy, and manageability with results that last all week. It keeps my color vibrant with its cuticle sealing technology. My hair feels silky for days! It is one of my must have products.
