This lovely, warm and spicy miracle is one of the best haircare products I've ever used EVER!
As told by my previous love-post here. is the place to get the best pricing I've found (in the U.S.) though occasionally you can find it on

I WISH IT WOULDN'T GO AWAY!!! However, the brightside is that Winter is coming! And that means the Winter Wen Scent is on it's way! HOORAY!!

A little Life Hack: Hoodie Drama Save

I live in California, The Land of Hoodies. Recently the second worst thing that could happen to a hoodie (the first being lending it someone and losing it forever), the hood string came out!
I'm not sure where I learned this Life Hack, but I'm gonna share it because it's brilliant!

Feed the string through a LARGE paperclip, then run the paperclip through the seam for the string. Since the paperclip is bigger and a different texture, it slides easily and quickly for the quickest fix ever!

Nightstand Treats: Cuticle Oil

Hi there! It's been quite the while since I've posted, sorry. Stuff gets in the way of other stuff and so on.

I've been meaning to post about this marvelous little beauty, Handbag Holiday by butter LONDON for some time. I was privy to an express manicure at the butter LONDON salon at SeaTac Airport, where I made my purchase. (I took advantage of the 2 treatments for $25) The treatment retails for $18 US and can be purchased at Nordstroms,,, etc.

This lightweight oil, smells delicious and doesn't even need to be rubbed in to be effective. Which is terrific because, cuticle treatments past have been goopy and sticky and a pain in the rear, at least in my opinion.
I love this mineral oil free oil as my last step before I drift off to dreamland. Keeping the bottle on my nightstand is a good reminder to use it. A simple brush-brush-brush over my nail-beds and I'm set. I haven't noticed a residue on anything like my sheets or pillowcase, but I haven't been looking either.
The cuticle oil absorbs quickly, but yes it's an oil so you can't slather on a ton and rub your eyes. Less is more, and you don't need to dip back into the bottle often to get more product.
My cuticles look hydrated in the morning and I'm quite pleased with my pampering purchase!

With the holidays looming, or for an anytime present to yourself or your favorite nail enthusiast; Handbag Holiday is an easy choice.
