This was the warmer of the month from Scentsy. Now I swore I wouldn't buy another warmer but this was so pretty I had to.
Scentsy describes this as:
"A glorious addition to our new Lampshade CollectionSilver Frost captures the elegance of snowflakes on a silvery glass vase. With a flick of the switch, the delicate flakes cast a radiant glow with plays of shadow and light."

My picture was taken at night, while warming Clemintine Clove. It's beautiful!  
It really does light up the room.  Of course I put something orange in and the light gave an orange glow on the walls.  I will have to buy another lampshade collection piece.

Scentsy's Clementine Clove was the fragrance of the month of November, I believe. I totally was on board by the name alone.  I really wasn't expecting it to have much more to it.  You know it didn't have a crazy name like Christmas Cheer or Holiday Happiness where you really don't know what it will smell like, even after reading the description.  I feel that I often buy stuff online just because it has notes in it that I like and it turns out at least 75% I 3enjoy what I bought.
I did, however, have a chance to smell this over at my friend Jann's house.  I was kind of hoping for a YC Spiced Orange kind of fragrance....I was wrong.
Scentsy describes this fragrance as:
"A bright medley of aromatic citrus with clove and a hint of balsam"

Okay first I was totally NOT expecting the balsam to be so heavy in this.  It's like three equally strong notes.  Now, I want you all to understand that I LOVE this fragrance.  It's sweet, spicy and piney....I had it in my great room and it was perfect!  I would recommend this to anyone who likes the notes mentioned.  If spicy, sweet with a pine tree is what you desire, then what are you waiting for, order it!  I am happy with it and would defiantly buy more.
Well I am trying another nail art challenge. The first one is Fresh. When I think of fresh of simplistic solid colors and what better than a Tiffany blue color. When ever I think of this particular color, I instantly think elegance.
Materials Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesive Base Coat
China Glaze For Audrey
NYC Extra Shiny Top Coat
Scotch Tape
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Hi Ho Silver
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Silver Sweep
Dotting Tools
Cotton Swabs
Cotton Balls
My Paint Brush for clean up
Out The Door Top Coat

I started my mani with a coat of China Glaze Strong Adhesive Base Coat. I don't let it really dry... by the time I get back to the other hand it's ready to be polished. 
This color is by China Glaze...For Audrey. I used two coats and I went ahead and put a cheap top coat on.  I think it was NYC Extra Shiny Top Coat.  After about 2 to 3 minutes I went ahead and cleaned up around the nail.

I placed two pieces of scotch tape on my nail to make a V shape with Sally Hansen's Insta Dri Silver Sweep.  I let one dry and started another and once I got it set up and painted I just peeled the tape gently so I didn't mess up anything.

I pulled out my other Sally Hansen silver color, because I wasn't sure at first which I wanted to use, and dotted the point of the V.  It didn't turn out PERFECT but it was good enough for me!  After a bit, I went back and used Out The Door top coat. 

TADA!  Next on the Nail Art Challenge for January is Sparkle.  I guess I should start thinking about it.
