Christmas Eve Morning

I woke up at 6 this morning because my husbands alarm went off and I could not go back to sleep. story of my life

So at 8 I decided what better way to spend my time then to make some peanut butter balls
One may have been eaten as my breakfast ;)

Then it was time to address the elephant grey hair in the room!!

I went to my favorite stylist the other day to get my hair cut but had to resist the urge to have her color my hair since I was sent the new Vidal Sassoon Stylist kit to test out for free from bzz agent.

Staring at my grey poking thru as she was styling my hair was almost to much for me! I just wanted them covered up. 

I mean I could pass as Mrs. Claus with these roots :/ 
Not that there is anything wrong with Mrs. Claus. I am sure she is a lovely lady ;)

These bad boys needed to go and today was the day!

I always keep makeup wipes handy and apply some Alba un-petroleum to my hair line so I don't end up with a lovely ring of hair color from any oops I might make!! (that tip was compliments of one of Kandee Johnson's videos)

Mixing up the first step was pretty easy peasy. Just mix it up and apply 3/4 of the mixture to all of your roots, clean yourself up and then wait 20 minutes for the second step.

My only issue was they provided one set of gloves (say what!!!). You have to remove the gloves while you wait the 20 minutes then try to get those little gems back on without getting hair color all over you and not to mention they don't really fit that great the second time around.

can you tell waiting is not my strong suit!

I had spare gloves but I decided since I was testing this out I needed to go with only what was in the box.

The next step you just mix in the serum to the rest of the mixture and apply it to the rest of your hair.

Then wait 10 minutes and rinse it out, wash your hair and apply the colour perserve conditioner.

Style and let the festivities begin!!!!

I think it turned out really pretty and frosty approves ;)

Now off to put some chocolate on those peanut butter balls :)

Have a Very Merry Christmas Eve everyone xoxo

December Ipsy Bag

But on a Tuesday!!

I have not blogged since Thanksgiving....REALLY Ughh!

December was busy and brutal that is my only excuse :/



Anyway the reason for my blog today is to share my Ipsy Bag for this month.

There was not much to swatch this month so I just took one picture of all the products and then one of the only product there was to swatch.

I received:
 Sexy Hair 450° Blow Out Spray full size retails for $18.95
Cailyn Just Mineral Eye Polish in the color orchid which retails for $15.00
Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara which happens to be my favorite mascara and full size retails for $20.00
Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser full size retails for $11.95
NYX Butter Lip Balm in Marshmallow which retails for $4.00

Here is a swatch of the Cailyn eye polish. It is very pretty but I have not tested it out yet.

As far as everything else the hair product and facial cleanser smell very nice but I have not tried either yet. I love the NYX butter lip balm. And of course I love the Mascara cause it's my favorite.

I hope everyone is having a Happy Christmas Eve Eve ;)
