Nails: Loving Nicki Minaj

Just a quick post before bed to show you guys my nails. My sister came over tonight with her boyfriend and nights like these always end up with my sister and I on the couch watching a chick flick, doing our nails while the boys are on the balcony smoking cigars. Tonight's movie of choice was Something Borrowed and nails where Pinterest inspired.




Dark pink: OPI La Positively Hot
Light pink: OPI Nicki Minaj

I saw this idea on Pinterest with a heart on top of glitter on the accent nail. It's a different idea and since I feel like I've done the ring finger accent a hundred ways, this is something different to keep my interest piqued.

For the heart I had a hard time figuring out the best way to paint it. I actually don't have any paint brushes that are small enough to make a tiny heart so I dipped a dull colored pencil into a blob of polish I put on some paper. It took a few tries to get it perfect but I'm loving it so far.

I took some outfit posts tonight but didn't have time to post them. I'll definitely have time to update tomorrow. Have a great night guys. Tomorrow is my Friday!!

Yay!

DIY Bracelets!

Happy Sunday Folks! Today has been a pretty relaxing day, grocery shopping, house cleaning, and of course laundry. I did attempt a Martha Stewart Tart that was out of my league and therefore ended up in the trash, you win some and you lose some right?! 

Other than that, I did spent some time this weekend working on some DIY things I have seen on Pinterest. I found some great links for making my own bracelets and since I love the look of stacked bracelets and I think it will be a fun look for summer, I thought this would be a great way to add a few to my collection.

Here are some supplies I picked up from Jo-Ann's:

Using some of these links (here and here) I created these:




Jo-Ann's didn't have a huge selection of colors so I am planning on ordering some more leather and beads from an online site to make some more. They are kind of addicting. Have any DIY crafts lately??

I hope you had a great weekend. Dinner is almost ready and we are having a mini-Thanksgiving. I have been craving dinner all week and tonight the hubs and I figured what the heck! Have a great night!!!

Google Friend Connect!

You might have heard from other bloggers but here is my update ----- if you follow using Google Friend Connect, it's going away tomorrow. I have a link on the side to follow by email so that's an option. Other than that I am not so sure what the new following platform will be...I'll keep you posted!

Rut!

That's right people---I'm in an outfit rut! I have spent a good portion of the night browsing my old outfit posts looking for inspiration. I think the majority of my dilemma stems from the internal battle I have with this season and weather. In my head it's February which means jeans, boots, scarves but realistically it's been 80* outside which means shorts, sundresses, and sandals. I'm already in a spring/summer state of mind. Today at work I was even looking at bathing suits!

This happens every year---September rolls around and we are still experiencing major summer temps here in Florida but all of the awesome bloggers I follow around the US are already wearing all of these amazing fall get-ups. I whine and complain about the heat desperately ready for the weather to cool and the boots to emerge. Then, in February when I should be still embracing my winter/fall accessories, it's 80's and all I can think are summer, skin, and beach!

Since I don't have an outfit to share, I am going to share everything that is on my mind...









I know I have no room to complain as the weather here is nice----hopefully your winter, where ever it may be, is mild and bearable. Any spring or summer items you are craving? Share please! 

Hope your week is going well!!!!

Outfit: A Little Bit of Neutrals

Hey guys! Today's outfit was all about neutrals. You guys know I work at a fashion retailer that has a company store at headquarters. I got these shoes for $6! I have had some really good luck with dresses and scarves but never with shoes. They usually don't have my style or size but this time all of these were in my favor. (They retailed for $98 or so)
 



Pants: Michael Kors
Tank: Banana Republic
Cardi: Ann Taylor Loft
Heels: WH|BM

Happy Hump Day guys!!

Outfit: Love is in the Air

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yesterday I was off from work and made my husband some great treats for Valentine's Day including cupcakes, danishes, and homemade potato soup. Hubs got me chocolates and roses. We typically don't make a huge deal out of this holiday since it's so commercial but a little something shows each other that we care and are thinking of each other.

Here are the strawberry cupcakes I made him (with homemade strawberry frosting):


In the spirit of the day, I decided to wear a little pink.




Jeans: Old Navy
Top: Banana Republic
Necklace: Charming Charlies
Heels: Betsey Johnson

I wish a great night tonight to you whether you are spending it with a loved one or just catching up on the Tivo or a great book.

Happy Valentine's Day!
