Better late to New York…


As you can see from the boarding pass, I am in my way to NYC – it’s Mercedes Benz Fashion week time again!

It has actually been going in for a few days already, but, I had the privilege to be a bridesmaid in my BFF’s wedding so I am getting to the shows later than normal. However, this works out great because that means I will get to bring you backstage coverage from several shows I have never had a chance to attend before!

As always, follow me on twitter for my up to the moment happenings. This season I will also be bringing you behind the scenes snaps on my Facebook page.

Can’t wait to get there and can’t wait to show you what I see!

Makeup Wars: Favorite Fall Polish

This edition of “Makeup Wars” is to show off our favorite fall polish, so I wanted to show you what I think is my favorite polish, which also happens to work in the fall.

I love me a grey polish – all shades and variations. Drugstore to department store. Local to international. If it’s grey, I need it. I can’t remember when it started, but I remember when my heart skipped a beat – it was when Sephora and OPI collaborated and introduced the amazing “Metro Chic”. This is what really started the “greige” rage and I was all in. This grey, purple-ish neutral stole my heart and that was that.

Some of the other grey’s that I grabbed for this pic are:

Maybelline Audacious Asphalt
Barry M NP293 Grey
NARS Storm Bird
Sally Hansen Gray By Gray
Some cute bottled grey from Asia
OCC Dangerous
Estee Lauder Wild Storm (discontinued)
Maybelline Silver Stunner (discontinued)

What is your favorite color to rock in the Fall?

And don’t forget to see what the favorite fall polishes of the other members of Makeup Wars is rocking this season:

*Sponsored Post* Dove Nourishing Oil Conditioner

Since I color my hair, I have to fight the dryness, and the heat of the summer didn’t help anything. One of the things that I have found that works for my hair is to coat it in oil when I get out of the shower. And now I’m adding another way to put oil on my hair – while I’m *in* the shower – Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner.
