OfTheNow is better than ever before with a new look and new address, yes that’s right we have moved! Please update your readers, RSS feeds and blog rolls to http://ofthenow.ca

With Camel being one of the most desired colours for fall 2010 fashion, it plays the perfect canvas to make accent colours pop. And one of the favoured places for fun accent colours is the nails. Spring/Summer 2010 saw the onslaught of yummy minty green and jade on the nails, made popular by Chanel. So popular in fact that Chanel Jade sold out more than once.

But Fall 2010 is the time for grape and violet lovers to rejoice, because polish colours like YSL‘s Belle de Nuit and Chanel’s Paradoxal are what’s hot for the upcoming season.

Rich jewel tones will be gracing the nails of all fashion forward ladies (and quite possible a few daring gents). And for those that want to have a bit more fun with their polish, try a spin on the traditional French manicure with a violet nail with a gold tip, as seen in the YSL Rock Baroque Campaign.

But if the plums and eggplants aren’t where your heart lies, simply go for anything metallic, rich jewel tones or buttery soft neutrals. Grey nails are also a hit for fall, just be sure to stay away from grey tones that can make your nails look ‘dead’. O.P.I‘s You Don’t Know Jacques or YSL’s Stormy Grey are alway’s good bets.

Coconut Oil is my latest obsession…

So welcome to the first OfTheNow post! Glad you could make it here.

Well as I said this is going to be a forum for all my latest obsessions and interests. My latest obsession has been Coconut Oil. Friends had been telling me about how good it is for your skin for a little while now, but I wanted to finish the not too cheap creams I had before I tried it.

Well as of two or three weeks ago I jumped on the Coconut Oil train, and now I’m obsessed. I wanted to go on a more natural skin moisture path after talking to a friend who is a holistic life coach and personal trainer. He told me all the bad things that were in fragrant body butter that I had been using religiously for years. Well, after three weeks using only Coconut Oil on my skin, I can honestly say I have never had softer skin. It’s also really good for your hair and Coconut Oil is said to help with stress relief, I can’t attest to that one yet, but I am game to try, I don’t know anyone who couldn’t use a little help in that department!

It’s also much cheaper than my former favourite body butters.

A jar of organic food grade Coconut Oil is only about $11.00. Not too bad my friends. On the topic of it being food grade, it’s also quite healthy to cook with. All in all, it seems you can’t go wrong with Coconut Oil.
