Review: Bootights

I can remember when I was a little girl and my mom used to make me put socks over my tights. Yes, that was a long time ago, BUT socks and tights seem to be the "in" thing again. A few weeks ago I got an email about this very thing, an innovative invention that is more fashionable then my style then. What are they? Bootights by Shelby Mason. Bootights are designed specifically for boots. They are a combination of fashionable tights and a contoured performance sock.

The pair I got are Lincoln Park Open Net. I got those as well as a pair of Darby's or knee highs. I wore the open net. First I love the look of this tight. Normally I have some issues with net tights, they tear easily. With these tights, they seem to be made a lot stronger. I had no issues with getting these tights on. The sock was comfortable. No sweat in my boots at all.


Now, I don't do feet photos, but it was necessary for this review so you can see how well the socks fit your feet. Would I recommend Bootights? 100% YES. I think women who layer, who find socks over tights to be bulky or tight fitting inside their boots will love and appreciate Boottights. You get the same style or idea but without the bulk of the style.

Bootights come in a variety of styles. I am seriously on the website as I type this up. They are reasonably priced. You will love them I promise. Head over to the website, check it out for yourself.

Book Review: Beautiful Bastard (Book #1)

My brain was on the verge of melting, it had been so long since I read a good book...well maybe not so long. Anyway a friend of mine was telling me about these books that were 50 Shades(ish). I hopped all over that and I am glad I did.

Beautiful Bastard is the first in the Beautiful series by authors Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, better known as Christina Lauren.

The book centers around main characters Bennett Ryan and Chloe Mills. Bennett has returned home from Paris to work for the family business Ryan Media and Chloe is his intern. He is an ass, through and through. He is frank, rude, a perfectionist who can't be bother with placing phone calls or sending out faxes. She is head strong and gives it right back to him. She has her career on her mind and works hard for Ryan Media. She doesn't want anything standing in the way of her scholarship or finding a good job once her internship is done. However, when you mix hate, passion, sexual tension and a board room...watch out because nothing is as clear now as it once was. As far as the sex scenes, they were hot, not 50 hot, but hot on their own. However, if you are looking for those 50 BDSM scenes, then this is not your book. The scenes are hot, wild and rough but no neck ties or red rooms of pain.

This book is for sure a page turner. I bought this book along with Beautiful Stranger (book #2) on the 18th, it would have been done yesterday but life happens, so I finished it this morning at like five something. Everytime I had to put the book down I couldn't wait to pick it back up. If you want to stay in the realms of Christian Grey (50 Shades) or Gideon Cross (Crossfire Novels) or even a William Honor (Honor Series) then this book is where you should continue. And like 50 Shades, rumor has it there will be a movie adaptation so look out for that.

If you wanna know more about this series, the authors, the movie etc then check out the Christina Lauren website.The entire series is now available on Amazon.

Review: Nad's

I was sent a few products from Nads. Nad's is a hair removal system for both men and women. Now I will be honest, waxing scares the crap out of me. I just don't like the pain. But I figured I would give it a try and see what happens.

The products I was sent to try were the body strips, facial strips, brow shaper, bikini/underarm strips and the nose wax. I tried the underarm strips and the eyebrow shaper and here is what I thought.

I liked the eyebrow shaper. The only thing is you have to make sure the wax is "warm" enough by rubbing it in between your palms because the wax is super thick. If it's not warmed up enough it makes it kind of hard to apply. However, once I got the wax warm it was easy to apply, removing the wax and my unwanted hair was not a painful as I anticipated.

The other thing that I tired was the Bikini & Underarm Wax Strips. This was a different story. The strips are what I call a twofer. And again, you have to rub the strip between your palms in order to warm up the wax. This was painful. But again, I am not a wax kind of gal. I ended up having to go back over the areas with a razor because it didnt get all of the unwanted hair. I will say that the waxed hair didn't grow right back like the shaved hair.

Overall, the product I did use were ok. I will use the eyebrow shaper again, but I more then likely will not be making it a habit of waxing my underarms. Giving that fact that I had to go over the area with a razor anyways, I might as well just shave and deal with having to do like every other day.

Nads Hair Removal products are available at your local drugstores as well as Walmart. Product information can be found on their website www.nads.com.

Insidious 2: Duri Cosmetics

Duri is back with another great collection. This time for the movie Insidious 2. I've seen Insidious 1, um, wasn't a fan so I will not be seeing part two but moving on here is what I thought of the collection. Instead of going on each polish like I normally do I am gonna wrap it up into one whole review.

The exclusive collection is made up of six colors. These colors were designed to match the theme of the movie highlighting significant colors with in the film:


Lady In White- pearl white
Red Door- deep/blood red
Steel Shadows- metallic grey
Nightfall- shimmering dark blue
Shocking Twist- lime green
Into The Future- black

I challenged myself to do my NOTW using only these six colors because it had taken my so long to do the review. What I love about Duri is the consistency of their polishes. With exception to the lighter colors I never need two coats and I don't get the streak marks. However with that being said, Lady In White, did give me the streaks. So much that I didn't use it as a base color for my design. Now, with the good there is the bad, there was nothing special about this collection, I feel as though, like another one of my favorite brand, Duri repeats their colors. I mean as much as I love Duri, I don't want a collection of dupes. 

Overall, it was a decent collection. If I had to pick a favorite from the collection it would be Nightfall, simply because I love deep, dark blues. The collection is available now online at www. duri.com and retail for $6. Also don't forget to check out Insidious: Chapter 2 starring Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson, in theaters now!

Review: The WAH Nails Book of Downtown Girls

When I got the email to review The WAH Nails Book of Downtown Girls (book2) I was excited. I am a true fan of nail art and WAH Nails has not failed me yet.

Book 2 is a little more in depth than book 1. It gives more tips on how to be a successful blogger to what you should have in your nail kit. Book 2 does still offer step by step instructions on how to create their nail arts.

How easy are these nail art to recreate, I am by no means an expert and I can recreate them. Of course they are not as good as the WAH Nail girls themselves, but they I like them.

As much as I am obsessed with WAH Nails, I am a little disappointed that they are solely based out of the UK. Yes, they are a UK based company which means all their supplies are based there too and last I checked they weren't shipping to the US. Oh did I mention supplies? Yes, WAH Nails has available (to my UK readers) nail art pens/paint, sticker sheets(which some are included in book 1) t-shirts, nail wraps and of course book 1. Book 2 will be available to order worldwide on September 10th, but I am going to give you a sneak peak inside book 2 as well as which of the nail arts I am currently wearing.
