Beauty Announcement + Grab-Bag

So, the good news is, I got a new job! The bad news is, I definitely will not have as much time to blog anymore. But never fear, I am still committed to posting and I’m especially hoping I’ll be able to continue Beauty in the Movies on a pretty regular basis.

Moving on to more fun things, last week I picked up one of the new polishes from OPI’s Pirates of the Caribbean collaboration, plus I also got my hands on a bottle of the new Silver Shatter polish.

This color is called “Planks A Lot” and it’s a lovely purple creme that appears slightly bluer on the nails than it does in the bottle, almost periwinkle in certain light.

Here it is with the Silver Shatter polish on top. The cosmetics world is acting like shatter polish is a new thing, but way back in the 90s it was called “crackle” polish released by Cover Girl and it was all the rage for a few months. The silver is pretty, and I think it would look even better with a darker shade underneath.

Here is a beautiful black iris that just blossomed in my front yard, isn’t the color gorgeous? I’d like a nail polish that looked like this.

So, I threw caution to the wind and my sister and I battled our way through the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale a couple of weeks ago. It was worth the scary crowds and the long line because I came away with this baby. The style is called the “Dear Tote” and this one is in a taupe glazed leather.

I will be paying it off for a while, but it’s a perfect work bag (great for starting a new job!) and it can fit a lot. This bag also has a whole bunch of pockets, can be worn across the body, and the color is really versatile. Money well spent I think!

Also, I started this blog one year ago today! Time really flies. I really hope I can keep this thing going, and thank you so much to all of you who’ve been reading, you’re the best!!

Ok, that’s it for now, but don’t forget to check back tomorrow for Beauty in the Movies!

    It’s so funny about the shatter polish – I was reading about it somewhere and was like “Isn’t that just crackle polish? Hasn’t that been around forever?” Looks real pretty though….

    Love the crackle- there were 2 soho models in the salon next to me last week and they got the back crackle over yellow and lime – it looked GREAT but I love the purple silver combo! XO
