Baby It's Cold Outside...


First, to all the newbies that have found their way to KGB, WELCOME!!!

Guys.

Mother Nature basically pooed on my face this morning.

Last night I sat down to go through my blog reader, and up pops and email from Boomer's school saying school was canceled. I laughed. I laughed because at that moment it was raining and part of my parking lot was flooded. Cancel school? For what I say?

Mother Nature is laughing this morning. Not I. That semi-flooded parking lot is now a skating rink. I almost busted my ass on said skating rink, trying to open my frozen shut door for Boomer this morning. Its COLD. Also...it is only going to get colder. I'm not complaining. I know I live in Ohio...but to put it into perspective...

It hasn't been this cold in Columbus in 20 YEARS.



Ohio State University closed today. I only remember them closing maybe 3 times in the 22 years I've lived here. No joke.


Last night I finally got to use my new pretty pink Clarisonic. Do you know you have to charge those bad boys for A DAY before you can use it???? All I was thinking was it better be worth the wait! Its weird because you turn it on, and it doesn't even look like its moving. Then you put it on your face and its like 'Whoa!!!' THEN...when I went to rinse my face off with some water I actually felt how smooth it was. I don't think my face has felt like that since birth. I'm also experimenting with some oils that came with it as a gift with purchase, so I'll let you know how those work for me.  I'm only going to use my Clarisonic twice a week to start, just because I feel like there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. I also bought the model that came with the sensitive brush head. Start easy and then you can always build up!

Also since the video I posted Friday got all wonky with sound, here is a pic of the nails I was so proud of. The base is OPI My Vampire is Buff with a glitter gradient of Essie Hors D'oeuvres.



Happy Monday Loves!

Girl, Mother Nature needs some Xanax, because I can't take her mood swings. On Saturday, after 10 inches of snow on Friday, I woke up and it was 8 degrees. That is a temp we are not used to in Philly. Thing morning, it's 50 degrees and pouring rain. All of the snow is gone. I can't take it. I'm glad Boomer didn't have to go to school in this weather, I'm sure the roads are extremely treacherous.

You will L-O-V-E your Mia 2. ALso, look on Groupon, as they have offers for the brushes. Much cheaper than buying them from Sephora/department stores! What type of oils are you trying?

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! when i first saw that image of your clarisonic, i thought: "why is she showing a picture of her vibrator? bitch is braver than me!!" hahahahaha omg i can't stop laughing.

but yes, mother nature is being a whore right now. not only did she dump a huge amount of snow on us, but she also pissed out some freezing rain to show us who's boss and temps will be dropping to -29C (and that's not even with windchill). WINTER, STOP IT ALREADY!!

It's soooooo chilly! I love your hat, you look so cute and cozy! I hope the cold isn't bringing you down too much today.

I remember that cold! The kind that burns your eyes and freezes your snot to your face.

Also, can you come to my house and do my nails? It's warm here.

I am obsessed with my Clarasonic! Unfortunately it's boring white not pretty pink :(

I'm so glad I work from home and don't have to go out in this crazy cold.

I love the little bits of glitter on the ends of the nails but haven't quite mastered it yet.
