OPI Muppets Collection for the Holiday 2011

Honestly I am a big fan of The Muppets have been for a long time. So when I saw that OPI was creating nail polish inspired by The Muppets, my immediate thought was I WANT MOST OF THOSE! 
This collection includes 6 beautiful shimmery colors, and also 6 glittery shades. The nail polishes will retail value at 8.50$ and they will be available in EARLY November.

"OPI is so excited to work with Disney to celebrate this long-awaited movie release,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “Not only do The Muppets characters inspire fun, bright and joyful colors, the fashionable Miss Piggy lends her name to three high-shine pink-based hues, ranging from bold red flecked with silver to a multi-dimensional strawberry shade."

NOTD- Zoya's Ginessa & Bijou

These colors are so much fun, after I painted my nails I kept saying how I felt like I was in a Lady Gaga video. I always love painting at least one of my finger nails a completely different color then the rest. I'm addicted to Zoya Nail polish, ever since Smoke & Mirrors collection came out I fell in love (Love at first sight :p) They are one of the best brands for nail polish I have used.
So today I was feeling a little Ginessa and a tad bit Bijou.

You can check out these colors and many more by clicking here!

Whats your favorite Zoya nail polish right now?

July Birchbox- Cynthia Rowley theme

Julys Birchbox theme was Cynthia Rowley(designer) and her favorite products!They did a cool kind of box cover for it! So this is what I recieved for July in my Birchbox, I wanted to wait till the end of the month after I fully tested out all of the products!!

 Redken Shine Flash 02- This weightless spray gives hair a brilliant sheen- I love it, the smell doesn't bother me, but if i apply to my roots its makes my hair greasy!

 Korres ShowerGel in Guava-A deliciously foamy body wash with aloe to keep skin soft long after you've toweled off and an exoctically lush fragrance- I am IN LOVE with this after only having it for a few days I made the commitment and got it in FULLSIZE. Since I had 100 points I only had to pay 9$ :)

 Philosophy Purity made simple one-step facial cleanser - Award winning, ph-balanced to gently clear away dirt, oil, and makeup without drying the skin. I was excited to get this in my birchbox, im still ify on it, it is very gentle though & def doesn't dry out my skin.

YBF Beauty- Automatic eye brow pencil in universal taupe- A two in one brow tamer; a comb brushes hairs into place, while the creamy pencil fills in sparse areas. I have added a new staple into my beauty bag, I love this and I use it everyday, and its perfect for travelling.

Last but not least Birchbox always includes a little Extra Something for June it was a Kind Bar-Almond & Apricot I ate this immediately after I opened my Birchbox, & great thing is it has no preservatives in it. Very Delicious!

Have you signed up for your Birchbox yet? Well you should! Sign Up Here & let them know I sent you. (alyssa schwabeland or lyssschwab @

Jouer Creme Eyeshadow in Chiffon

First off I just want to start out by saying Jouer Cosmetics has THE BEST customer service I have ever dealt with! It was a pleasure speaking with them, even though there was a mix up with my order, it was no inconvience AT ALL because their customer service is fantastic. They definitely know how to treat the customer.
Now onto the Creme Eyeshadow, Chiffon is a shimmering ivory pearl which costs 20 US$. It is a gorgeous color, I like to use this color as a highlighter for under my brows, on the tops of my cheekbones and on the inner corners of my eyes. I have always been skeptical about creme eyeshadows with pigment issues and creasing the most, this eyeshadow will crease big time BUT I found if you put an eye primer on first then apply this, its like its not even a creme shadow. This definitly brightens up your eyes, so I suggest after a long night and your eyes are looking a bit drab just use your middle finger and dab it all over your lid then in your inner corner and VOILA you look fresh and wide awake.
