How I’m Finishing Off At The Vanity For 2013; What Is Going To Happen During 2014

I am testing out a Noxzema facial wipe and haven’t completed at least 7 days. My own rule is to test out the facial wipes for a week straight before reviewing them and, that hasn’t been completed. But, I will share with you a few things that have happened in the last 10 days. I got fed up with my own crappy nails. They are dry, cracked, broken, etc. So I went to the nail salon to get non-soak off gels. It started off like this…

My little fun excursion of getting two ‘peek-a-boo’ purple chunks at the nape of my neck have left me with only 2 inch long here there. The bleach broke my fragile hair. And, I had it done professionally. So, I got a haircut, trim actually, as I didn’t change the style. I haven’t had a trim since May and I was ready. Here’s what it looked like right afterwards…

Here’s what my hair looked like after I washed it and let it be its own curly self…

I got almost 1-3/4″ cut off the back. Check your drugstore and mass merchandise stores for new hair products. Garnier, Tresemme, Suave, Nexxus and others are launching lots of very specialized hair care items. I’ve got some to share with you later on.

And a very special love/obsession has grown for me this past Fall, right on into the Winter. I can’t get enough of Solstice Scents. Even though fragrance posts are hard for me to do, I won’t let that stop me from sharing my experiences with these unequalled and completely unique scents. Here’s is how my Winter Collection order came…

Other things to come in 2014: a HUGE makeover of the blog. It’s been in the planning stages for months as I gather up and present my ideas to the designer. I’m going to revive my fashion blog; sister blog to the Vanity and, I’m adding another blog to the ‘pink’ family dealing with health, fitness and healthy laughter. Also, I’m trying to decide what blogging/makeup/beauty national show to attend this year. Let the planning begin!!!!
