Moore News You Can Use: Summertime Skincare

For most of us, summer is in full swing which means lots of sun all day long! As you enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family, it’s so important to remember to protect your skin from sun damage. Yes, we all know that it’s really important for our face and body — but don’t neglect your hands too! This article from StyleCaster points out that our hands are a huge age giveaway. Arms are very important too: those who drive on a regular basis are exposed to substantially more sun on the left side of the body, making the left arm, neck, and face more susceptible to certain skin cancers.

 The team at suggests looking for a sunscreen with these features…

Moore Swatches: LynB Designs – Shimmer Me This


Hey Sugas! If it’s not one thing, it’s another. Just when things were running smoothly, here comes a curve ball. There I was yesterday evening, minding my business, preparing for the beach and Jason informs me that ‘Houston, we have a problem,’ with our van. Our 2006 Honda Odyssey may need the belt replaced. Seriously?! I just can’t!

Now, I’m not a car person, I know how to put the key in the ignition and drive so immediately I’m thinking that it’s going to cost us hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to fix. We don’t have that kinda money just lying around, I just got back from Polish Con and we leave for the vacation in 5 days.  So here I am with a bum neck and shoulder and we’re down a vehicle. I know it will all work itself out and I hope when we have it looked at on Friday, it’s something simple and doesn’t cost a small fortune to fix, but can I just say, I am looking forward to this vacation more than ever now. Sorry, for the rant, I just needed to vent.

Let’s talk polish….

Moore Swatches: Sassy Sauce Polish – June 2018 Release


Hey Sugas! I woke with the worst neck/shoulder pain EVER!! #ugh I have been dealing with soreness and limited mobility in the same spot for a few months but I am terrified of going to the doctor to get it checked out. But I guess it’s time I suck it up and make an appointment. I’ll keep you updated but in the meantime, just send good, positive vibes my way.

Pain or not, this time next week, I’ll be sitting oceanside at VA Beach on vacay with Jason, the kids, my mom and my cousin and his family. I’m so excited for this trip. We have been planning it for months and finally it’s almost here. This will probably be the highlight of my summer because the kids will occupy the rest of it with their endless activities and events. But as much as it might sound like I am complaining – and most times I am, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Let’s talk polish….

Today I have 10 new polishes from Carrie of Sassy Sauce Polish. She is releasing her Matte Top Sauce, which if you’ve been playing attention, I’ve been using for months with my swatches. Carrie also has 3 new Stamping Sauces being added to the lineup, 3 Sassy Sauce Sistas Facebook Group customs, 2 June Releases and the Lacquer Collab June Exclusive Contribution.

Moore Swatches: Pahlish – Mukashi (Once Upon a Time) Collection (Partial)


It’s just before 8am est on Friday morning and I have already been asked, what are we doing today… twice by 2 different children of mine *insert sigh here*. Like don’t siblings communicate and select one lucky one to ask the questions? I have no personal experience being an only child, but I always thought that’s how it went. No?

Yes, Jason and I were nice enough to allow the kids not to go to school today and start their summer break early. Yippee! *said in my most sarcastic voice ever!

You see, Jason gets to leave out of the house for work. I, on the other hand, only have to travel to the basement to work. That means I get to hear the yelling and fussing that is sure to take place this summer…for 11 weeks.

So couple that with being up since 4:30am after getting to bed at almost midnight means that I need coffee, and lots of it, to make it through the day. But I should look on the bright side….

I’ll let you know when I find it.

On to the polish…

Today I have 3 of the 10 polishes from the Mukashi (Once Upon a Time) Collection from Pahlish. Inspired by Japanese folklore and fairytales, this set is comprised of soft shades and bright neons. I’m sure you can tell which I have for you today. Let’s jump in.

Hello, hello 👋🏾! I know it’s late but please bare with me. Before I leave for Polish Con on Saturday, I had to tend to my mom duties and well…. it took a little longer than expected🤦🏾‍♀️. Now it’s after 10pm est and waaaaayyy past my bed time for any grammatical errors are not my fault and I’ll go through tomorrow and make it look nice and neat . Until then, I’m able to relax, eat popcorn 🍿 and watch America’s Got Talent 📺. As I’m watching it, I’m thinking to myself, yeah, they that’s cool you can do magic and yes your dance crew is really good and wow, you can sing 🎤 very well but indie polish makers are the talented ones.

Tonight, I have the LE Trio and Water Colors Collection from one the talented, Mariah of Great Lakes Lacquer. The LE Trio is an homage to NY, where PC is taking place and the 5 piece Water Colors Collection is filled with summer fun that plays off things that can change the color of water. It’s also inspired somewhat by the colored logo and made to celebrate the 3rd Anniversary of Great Lakes Lacquer.

Moore Swatches: Girly Bits – Polish Con June 2018 Event Polishes


Hey Sugas! So you know how excited I was about Saturday because of PC?? Well, I glanced at the school calendar and WHAM-O…Friday is the last day of school. 11 weeks with the kids…FUN! NOT! Kidding, I’m kidding. I am excited to spend quality time with the kids at home, about as excited as if I were going to the dentist. 11 weeks of constant eating, activity planning and pool…meh, I guess it’s not all bad. I just signed the girls up for a “Girl’s Scout” workshop next week and Xavier will have band camp starting in August. We also have the beach to look forward to – a week with family making memories and sandy butts. Ahhhh…what joy!

But I digress, let’s talk Polish Con. Pam from Girly Bits has created three event LEs and a VIP.  And if you are not able to attend PC, the LEs will be available on the Girly Bits website for a limited time starting early July and the VIP will be available in very limited quantities at PC and on the GB website IF over pours are available.
