Mid-week Coffee Break - Dinosaurs, Simplicity, & Bananas!

Happy mid-week guys!

I hope you enjoyed the post yesterday featuring the soon to be released collection from LynBDesigns!

Today I have some fun and some delicious finds for you.

Next week I'll have more polish posts for you. My goal is to post Monday, Wednesday, & Thursday.

For today...let's get on to the coffee break!

It's a heat changing mug...oh my goodness.

This is so earthy but so bold in color. Lovely.

There is something so classic and picturesque about this simple styling.

Oh J.K. you are my hero.

Crazy Banana Cake? Well I'm intrigued. 

Champagne Mojitos...this totally had me at champagne.

See you next week!

LynBDesigns Review & Swatches - No Forgiving You Now Collection

My oh my. I was gone last week. Sorry!

If you follow my blog's FB page then you'll know I had some technical difficulties. 

But I'm back and I have a pretty fabulous way to start out my week back!

A couple weeks ago I shared with you The Name is Everything Collection from LynBDesigns, inspired by the Houses at Hogwarts, and this week I have more Harry Potter inspired goodness to share! 

This collection is inspired by the three unforgivable curses. The baddest of the bad in the realm of curses. Even though these polishes are based on such unforgivable and diabolical curses...boy are they beautiful!

These release on 7/3/15 at 7 pm EST. 
Links to the shop will be down below.


Death
**Black jelly base with green & gold micro flakes & green iridescent flakes**
***This deep and dark beauty is opaque in three thin coats. This polish provided some of my favorite macros. Those gold flakes are on point! Photos show three thin coats. No issues with application or formula.***
  

Pain
**Black jelly base loaded with red flakes, red micro glitter, & black & white shreds.**
***Oooh wee! Look at all that red goodness! I just LOVE what the shreds add to this. It totally reads "Pain" in polish form. Such a beautiful mix of red & black. Photos show three thin coats. No issues with application or formula.***
  

Servitude
**Black jelly base loaded with blue flakes, iridescent micro glitters, & iridescent micro flakies.**
***Oh beautiful blue. This is such a rich & lush blue. Even though jellies can be tricky in regards to opacity these are pretty perfect. Photos show three thin coats. No issues with formula or application.***
 
  

Now remember...the release day is just a few days away!
These unforgivable curses go live on 7/3/15 at 7 pm EST!

Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Happy 31st Birthday to Me!

I just wanted to share a handful...or so...of photos from my trip to the Wizarding World last Friday!

Have any of you ever been? Or plan/hope to go?

We're already saving so we can go back!

It was hot...and crowded once it hit the afternoon hours...so we thought it would be fun to go again when it's cooler and possibly in the evening so we can see it in a different light.

So let's go on a little journey shall we?

The hubs and I en route!

 
The must have Hogwarts Express photo!

Oh Butterbeer...how I miss thee.

The Magical Menagerie storefront was one of my favorites!

My hubs casting a spell on Nagini!

Giving my unclaimed Holly wand a try.

They even have the billboard from the Half-Blood Prince!

Hitching a ride on the Knight Bus!

 
Photos on the stoop of the safe house at 12 Grimmauld Place. Creature opens the blinds every 2 minutes but we didn't manage to get a photo when he was there!

Hanging out with goblins in Gringotts Bank!

En route back home with our new addition aka Ophie the Pygmy Puff!

Thanks for traveling with me!

Anyway...tomorrow will be a special post...photos from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Yay yay yay! Yep...I'm still on a Harry high.

Anywho tune in tomorrow for those and stick around today for some fancy finds!

LynBDesigns Review & Swatches - The Name is Everything

Oh my friends. Do I have some exciting stuff to share with you today.

First of all...I DID make it to the Wizarding World on Friday! The weather held out for the most part. There was a short downpour but we were tucked safely inside The Three Broomsticks chowing down on pub food and Butterbeer!

And how perfect is the timing of my trip with this post packed full of Harry Potter goodness?
Also...today is my 31st birthday! Oooh weee so much exciting stuff is happening!

I think I'm going to share some of my favorite photos from my trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter later this week also.

Today let's focus on some pretty fabulous Harry Potter goodness from LynBDesigns.

So what house are you? Are you a Hufflepuff, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin?
I'm a Ravenclaw and so is my husband!

Jenna over at LynBDesigns is releasing The Name is Everything collection in three short days!
And to be more specific...the release is at 7 pm EST on 6/19/15.

Each polish below is shown all by itself with no undies, three thin coats of each polish, topped with B Shiny from LynB.



Kindness & Justice
**Inspired by the one and only Hufflepuff house. The house that good old Cedric (R.I.P.) was in.**
***Lots of gray crelly goodness in this beauty. Gray with black, white silver, gold, & gold holo glitters. The formula was easy to work with. The glitters played nicely and weren't an issue getting lots on the nail. The Hufflepuff House will rejoice!*** 
  

Brave & Adventurous
**Inspired by the Gryffindor house this red jelly hits the nail on the head of inspiration**
***Lovely crelly formula. Red crelly with red, orange, yellow, white, & black glitters. As with most jellies, and all polishes in this collection, it needs thin coats and three will get you to opacity. No issues with formula or application.*** 
  

Curiosity & Knowledge 
**Inspired by Ravenclaw, the house I call my own, any other Ravens out there??**
***Blue crelly loaded with blue and bronze microglitters and black and white glitters. This one has more of a glitter texture and formula than the previous two polishes. It dries to a more textured finish because of that. It can probably be opaque in two coats if you use thicker coats than I did. No issues with staining, application, or formula***
  

Greatness & Ambition
**Inspired by the always ominous, for better or for worse, Slytherin house**
***Green crelly with silver, gray, green, red, & purple glitters. I'm not going to lie...I may walk the line between Slytherin & Ravenclaw...so this beauty really spoke to me. Plus...I love green. There is so much fabulous going on in this beauty. No issues with formula or application. And like all the other polishes this is shown with three thin coats.***

What's even more exciting then this collection? Well...not much. 
But what makes this collection MORE exciting...there will be two more Harry Potter themed collections from LynBDesgins releasing  in July!

Again The Name is Everything Collection will release Friday (6/19) at 7 pm EST.
