the perfect holiday present for a beauty junkie : clarisonic mia 2

I finally received my Clarisonic Mia 2 in the mail a week ago, as an early Christmas present from the hubbs!  It's a step up from the original Mia.. and I couldn't have found the perfect design and deal for this one!

According to Clarisonic : Mia 2 is an extension of our popular Mia family that gives you all the benefits of sonic cleansing in a compact, easy-to-use style. Mia 2 features two speeds, a one-minute pulsing T-Timer® and a protective travel case for on-the-go sonic cleansing. Now you have more choices for beautiful skin.

I ordered mine from QVC since, at the moment, they are the only site that stocks the Black Leopard print design, which I just love!!  Plus they have it at an amazing value!  So if you are looking into getting this, I highly recommend the QVC package.

I used it for the first time this week and I'm quite pleased with the results.   At the moment, my parched skin is quite happy with the sensitive brush head.  I'm glad the package also came with the deep pore cleansing brush head so I can change it out on days I need extra exfoliation.  

if you are thinking of what to give your lady, mother, sister, friend, or whomever -- 
Opt for the Clarisonic Mia 2.. as no beauty junkie wouldn't want to find this under the Christmas tree!

*Disclaimer: This Mia 2 was purchased by my husband.. no compensation here folks!

    nail polish of the day : the orly androgynie is quite galactic

    A new nail polish love.. I knew I had to have this shade the moment I saw it.  I am after all, a lover of all things glitter.  I can describe Orly Androgynie as the perfect "Faint Blue Galaxy" in a bottle.

    Yes, such entities do exist..

    Androgynie's base is not quite black.  In my opinion, it is more of a dark purple-brown, almost black,  and it is laced with various shapes and sizes of blue, teal, gold, pink, coral glitters.

    Orly Androgynie is part of Orly's holiday collection.   I happen to pick up the last bottle from my local Sally's so check it out soon while you still can!

    clarisonic mia--aeeoowwww!

    Just recently, Clarisonic ran a facebook contest to create your own design for the new Clarisonic Mia 2, and even though I didn't partake in the said art-related hoopla, I had an idea in my head as to what what my perfect Mia 2 would look like..

    And what-da-ya-know.. the design team of Clarisonic had already made my life easier by taking the design and colorway out of my virtual drawing board!  Everything about it is just.. well.. ME!

    The Clarisonic Mia 2 in Black/White Leopard is currently an exclusive to QVC... and yes, she will be mine.  I think.  
    Well, in that case, I better log off and start kneading more dough for Santa's snickerdoodle cookies!

    sugar.. the rocco spice.. and everything nice!

    Santa came crawling down the chimney early this year.. could it be the plate of snickerdoodle cookies I bake that he loves so much?  

    Either way, a big thank you to my sweet Santa for crossing this off my wishlist!  And making sure I got it before it flew off the shelves..

    Bordeaux and reds lace this handbag in different depths, which make it even more special.  Do note that the flash has somewhat given the handbag a really shiny texture.  In person, the color is much deeper and a bit more matte.   I just adore it!  

    Thanks again my Santa Baby!

    And to see it in action, here is Lily Collins rocking this awesome color..

    "it's the most wonderful time of the year...."

    December may be my favorite month of all!  Christmas, after all, is the most exciting holiday for me.  And may I just add that I am also a Christmas Eve baby!  I really do think that it is the most wonderful time of the year -- as the song goes.  

    Call me crazy, but I am one to create virtual shopping carts and endless wish lists in December all the way to New Year's Eve.. hoping that Santa will amuse me with "double gifts".. I call it the Merry Birthday package.

    With that said, I am hoping not to land the Naughty List with my incessant "Oh Santa, please please please do hit the Check Out button on my virtual shopping carts!"

    Welcome December!
