Holiday Nails In Time For The Christmas Parade - Thanks @Glossique

The "TEMECULA" Christmas Parade was last night!  Do you guys tough it out in the cold weather to watch the floats, bands and all the Christmas excitement for your local town parade?

All products sent for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest review of these products.

Our kids especially like the Parade because, for the second year in a row, they love to help one of our "favorite" restaurants (LUKES ON FRONT STREET) sell hot chocolate and coffee to the crowds of many...trying to stay warm...before the parade begins.
Last night was no exception and because my girls are the two who look the most forward to it, they wanted to look great for their volunteer work too!  This includes the hands that are pouring, passing & squirting the whipped cream on top.  You never know...someone might see their nails, right?
GLOSSIQUE sent us the "WONDERFUL SEASON" (petite) set of nail decal art and my girls FREAKED OUT!  This was the perfect set to wear last night to the parade.  So amidst me cooking dinner and getting things ready to go to the parade, we did their nails, right on the kitchen counter.  
One of the things I LOVE about Glossique is that their nail decals takes literally minutes (it's even less than actually painting nails and letting them dry, and less tedious too) to do.  I had both girls nails completely done to perfection & ready for them to serve, in less than 10 minutes.  I'm not joking!  They are so easy and simple to apply and because they sent us the PETITE size, 
I had less cutting and filing to do, to fit them on my girls tiny nails!  The only sad part is the a lot of the reindeer's antlers were filed off, because their nails are SO LITTLE!  
Otherwise, the decals looked amazing and their manicures were flawless!
GLOSSIQUE nails may not have been noticed much last night, but they helped my girls confidence as they represented an awesome restaurant and served up hot chocolate with smiles to patrons of the Temecula Christmas Parade.  
They has have amazing CHRISTMAS NAILS to head ot school with on Monday!

Dear Santa...I Know What I Need For Christmas With Tartan + Twine

Every year at Christmas, we are always asked what we want or need from our friends and family.  I am horrible at thinking up any ideas for myself, when it comes to this question.  Maybe it's because I try to get my needs, when I NEED THEM.  And as far as wanting, I have far more than I need, so I would rather focus the "gift giving" on my kids, family or friends!  It's just who I am...

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
But after careful (or not so careful from looking at the picture above) consideration of that question this year, I realized that one thing I might "NEED" to consider buying next for myself is a new, slightly bigger makeup bag.  TO BE HONEST, I'm pretty desperate for something new!  The one I've been using, was a goodbye gift from a friend, when we moved from Connecticut to California four years ago.  I have loved it and used it constantly since then, and as you can see from the picture above, it's been WORN OUT!  And to be honest, I have too much makeup (thanks to my older daughter) to fit inside the bag now!  
So I was delighted to review/feature a new cosmetic case set from Tartan + Twine.
They have so many different "collections" of amazing makeup it was hard to choose one that was PERFECT for me.  But I will admit that as soon as I saw the Tawney Steppe collection, I immediately fell in love.  Those that know me, know that I am slightly obsessed with animal print things.  Scarves, shoes and purses in animal print make me of course a costmetic case set in a similar pattern would make my face "a glow".
And it did!  This set is SO AWESOME!  
Seriously...I am in love with it!  Not only does it come in a carry case that is clear (so you can see the pattern of the bags inside), but it has two leopard printed bags, as well as a "faux leather" styled larger makeup bag.  This is the perfect set for my bathroom counter and to take along with me when I go on overnights somewhere or a trip to visit my family in Texas (when I get to).  It is also roomy enough to pack my tooth brush, some hair accessories and stuff as well!
And thank you Tartan + Twine for helping me find something I needed & wanted for Christmas.
