Miami Vice

I saw this look while wandering in various nail sites. 
Loved it so much, I had to re-create it.
Inspired by the Miami Strip, this is a very simple design, but the hot colors definitely make it worth taking a second look.

For all you case you cannot wait for the Oprah show, here is the BRAND new Eclipse trailer set to air on Oprah today.

This is my favorite book of the series 
and there just are no words to tell ya how excited I am to see this movie...
of course, I'm excited for anything twilight related, but THIS one in particular I have been waiting for a long time.
Judging by this final trailer, I think it's safe to say that
David Slade
has become my new favorite director.

Dolly's Miracle Product Of The Month


 Neatly hidden away in the back of all our pantries, 
this little yellow box is never given proper credit for all the wonderful things it can do.
  I am here to tell you otherwise.

Did you know that Baking Soda, or it's technical term, Sodium Bicarbonate has been around since the 1700's? A French chemist by the name of Nicolas LeBlanc produced Baking soda in 1791. In 1846, two New york Bakers establish the first factory to develop baking soda for what most of us use it now, and that's for baking!
Ahh, but enough of the history lesson, onto the good stuff!!!

Here are 8 Beauty Tips for Baking Soda

1) - Teeth Whitening.

For that bright smile, brush teeth with a pinch of Baking Soda & table salt.
It even acts as a mouthwash, helping to eliminate bad breath.
Gargling with Baking Soda & water also helps heal mouth sores.

2) - Pampered Feet.

2 Tbsp of Baking Soda with 1Tbsp of salt into a basin of hot water.
Soak your feet for 15-20 minutes. It gently removes dirt and dead skin for those tired footies. And for extra scrubbing power, make a paste of Baking Soda and water and run the bottom of your feet to remove those tough dry patches.

3) - Dry Shampoo.

Sprinkle a pinch of Baking Soda onto your hair brush and run through your hair, concentrating on the roots, and the Baking Soda will absorb all the excess oils.

4) - Nail Care.

Apply a couple of sprinkles of Baking Soda to your nail brush and use on finger nails & toe nails to clean and buff the nails as well as soften your cuticles.

5) - Sunburn & Insect Bites.

Make a paste of a pinch of Baking Soda & a couple drops of water.
It cools & helps the affected area(s) for quick relief and faster healing.

6) - Product Residue.

Got some hair product build up weighing your hair down?
Add 1/2 tsp to your shampoo and the Baking Soda will gently remove all that build up.

7) - Revitalize & Smooth Skin.

For all those tough, dry patches of skin, such as elbows, hands & knees, 
mix 3 parts Baking Soda to 1 part water to form a thick paste.
Apply in a gentle circular motion to the area, rinse & apply a moisturizing lotion & your skin is left feeling soft & supple.

8) - Microdermabrasion.

A pinch of Baking Soda mixed with 1-2 pumps of your favorite Facewash once or twice a week and it will replace any and ALL your microdermabrasion products. 

So, the next time you walk past the pantry, 
stop and grab for this little yellow wonder, 
you may be pleasantly surprised,
and your wallet will thank you too!
