Somehow in my midnight pretend cyber shopping, I found out that Old Navy has TALL sizes on-line!!! I am long waisted, and since most pants are made longer these days, they're not a problem, but length of shirts in the body and arms always is. When I saw Old Navy has tall SHIRTS, too, well, I ordered and today got three packages. Can't wait to see what works!!

You know you can wear the little ring on the silver polish, right? Nice touch, OPI!
Honestly, this stuff is genius. I was thinking of trying purple hair, and violet purples are my color, rather than blue based, so I purchased this at my favorite hair place, Vavoom Hair Studio in Anchorage, AK. There are a bazillion colors!!!! With my blond hair, the color is picked up VERY well, and I can even flat iron it in to make it last longer.
I think it cost about $18, which is a lot cheaper than a full color processing. You have the option to try out different types of colors before you actually commit to a longer lasting and more expensive semi-permanent process. I've seen pictures of it on dark hair and it works just as well.

If you need to make a decision in a hurry, what do you do? Go to the internet!!!
This is the front side...It's not really long in front, coming right to the waist line, but could be matched with a long tank, like what I was wearing that day.
And the back is completely different than expected! It has a kind of sweeping polyester type of fabric that will create a great flow as you walk.
I loved this, but it just wasn't really long enough for me. In the end, I was able to get a tall length sweatshirt that was similar from Old Navy. So while I mourned this sweater/sweatshirt, it all worked out in the end.

Today I received a box that I had ordered from Urban Decay. I was dazzled by the Shattered Face Case. It looks cool on the outside and inside is your "face in a case" for a long weekend, vacation or anytime. I'm already loving this more than I had imagined when I ordered it. Here's the outside.
And on the inside there are two levels to the palette. You get five eyeshadows, a Lovechild High Gloss Lip Color, one of Urban Decay's awesome eyeliners, a blush, a bronzer and a highlight. And there are great mirrors inside. I promise swatches to come!
This is a mini "pretty picture" post with full review and swatches in the future. You can purchase the UD items on Sephora.com, in Sephora stores, or on Urban Decay's own website. Additionally, Urban Decay products are sold online at Beauty.com and Amazon.

I got a fun little gift bag from Ninja Polish. These facial wipes were in there. I love them. One thing I really like is that while you get the benefit of cucumber, they don't smell overly like cucumber, (which I don't like). They clean well and leave a non-greasy feel. Thanks, Ronnie!!

NYX Cosmetics has several of these palettes that I like to call 'Niners...lots of color variations. You know I just may have to have them all!
I was really happy to see NYX landed at my local Target in Alaska. The selection in Fred Meyer is rather slim and Target has the whole line, so wahooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

I saw these Boogie Wipes while I was shopping at Target. I thought they were hilarious!!! And with the orange and green packaging, they'd be great for Halloween as you offer the kid at the door a boooooooo-gie wipe. Or maybe at a disco, lol.
