Hi Dolls!
Hope you all enjoyed a fabulous Christmas with all your loved ones and that Santa brought you all you had hoped for! ;)
I hope you all shared some much valued time with family and friends; sharing several belly laughs, great food, and of course some delicious cocktails. 
Our family was very spoiled this year! We got to spend the holidays laughing, enjoying each others company, eating lobster, prawns, and a prime rib Christmas dinner- thanks Aunt Cin!

A lot to be thankful for in the year of 2013!
And here it is Saturday morning already and a beautiful morning it is here in GR Michigan. Crisp morning air, sun shining bright, snow covered trees glistening, with snow banks mighty high.
  Delicious chocolate chip pancakes sit in front of me thanks to my hubby! I sit with my morning cup of coffee in hand, my oatmeal and avocado mask on, doing what I love- writing to YOU ALL!

I cannot believe 2014 is days upon us! Anyone have any new years resolutions to share?
I plan to start detoxing!
Morning and lunch juicing and exercising regularly.
I always fall off the wagon when I get home from vacation and December is a tough month to be motivated and eat well with all the holiday parties and festivities.

Today, I am sharing with you all a makeup love of mine.
Who doesn't love a dewy, glistening look to their face- RIGHT?!
I am totally in love with cream blushes lately. They are a fabulous option to try if you love that dewy, sultry finish on the apples of your cheeks ;)
A brand I recommend picking up if your a first time user is NYX Cosmetics, found at my favorite store ULTA. Be sure and bring your coupon and also watch for buy 1, get one 50% off.

NYX Cosmetics is a great line that is extremely affordable. They have great products that are very pigmented and long lasting.
NYX Rouge Cream Blushes are velvety smooth offering a dewy wash of radiant color to your cheeks.
My 2 favorites that I am sharing with you today are Boho Chic (left) and Tickled (right).
Boho Chic is a soft and gentle baby pink.
 Tickled is a soft shimmering peaches and cream finish.


These blushes are great to wear in the winter because they give you that glow that your skin is missing in the dry, wintery months.
This line of cream blushes that NYX offers has a several colors to choose from that will suit anyone's liking. These blushes are buildable to attain the perfect amount of pigment you are looking for, whether it be suttle or dramatic.
Better yet, they last all day.
Be sure and apply your cream blush with your fingertips or a makeup sponge right where you want it.

I do love shopping at ULTA because they always have testers on the floor so you can sample the product and color before purchase.
At $6.00 a piece for these blushes, add a coupon, you would be silly not to give one a try.

Do you have a favorite blush product whether it be cream or powder? If so, I would love to hear about it because I love trying new things!

Hope you all enjoy the rest of 2013.




Hi Dolls!
Happy Holidays to you ALL!
Hope you all have been staying warm this winter! I apologize for my absence in writing on the blog. It’s been a busy couple months! NO EXCUSE THOUGH, because I truly love writing. Just wish there was more time in the day. I keep telling myself, maybe I should be getting up early and writing- but I am so not a morning person!
I am very thankful this holiday season. My hubby and I got to celebrate our 1st anniversary in the Dominican Republic together for a week, which was fabulous with some much needed R and R. Back to reality with work and the chaos of finishing holiday shopping and gift wrapping. Though I LOVE nothing more than giving a great gift to someone you love and care so much about! And did I mention, we got to come back to almost a foot of snow. The winter has not been so nice to Michiganders this year.
I wanted to share some special news with you all!
After countless months of research, lots of praying, sweat and tears I am proud to announce the opening of MY online store, Ginny Blues to open this 
March 2014.
The focus of my store will be trendy pieces of female clothing and accessories at very affordable prices.
Yes, I am a Registered Nurse by day, but my passion and OBSESSION lies within fashion, with an appreciation for fabulous and affordable style.
Don’t worry; I am not quitting my day job.
 I have a website in the process of design dedicated to Ginny Blues. I plan to put together fashionable pieces for you (from Ginny Blues merchandise) and post them on the blog.
Often I get from women that the hardest thing is pairing things together to make an outfit. Take for example a great top;  what bottom, shoe, and or accessory do you then pair with it?
That’s where I come in and that’s what I love doing! I love helping you make a great top LOOK FABULOUS with that killer pair of heels, or stunning piece of jewelry.
I am blessed to have the help and business expertise of my oh-so stylish cousin Elyse in all of this.
She will be my sidekick in helping me find fabulous pieces to offer you all.
In 5 short weeks we will be shopping the Chicago StyleMax to bring you the latest, most fabulous trends for the spring at VERY affordable prices.
 If any of you know me, I am a bargain shopper through and through and that’s what I intend to do for all of you.
Off that exciting note, I am here to share a fabulous holiday look with you all tonight.
Leopard print is in full swing this holiday season and I am totally obsessed.
Pictured below is a fabulous holiday outfit to wear to any Christmas party; whether it be work, family, or friends gathering.
These pieces below are not only fabulous put together like so, but can be used for other occasions. Pair this gorgeous leopard top with a great pair of skinny jeans and tall black boots. Have a winter wedding to attend? Pair this beautiful black skirt with an oxblood red scoop-neck shirt.
