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!!!

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!

Outfit: Navy and Mustard

Happy Friday! I love Friday more and more every week and this one is even better as I am off Monday!! This Sunday is my Half Marathon and the weather is looking perfect, low of 45* high of 55*!! I don't know if you recall my last Half Marathon but it was in Miami and the humidity was extremely high.

Outfit time!! I mentioned before that I love this mustard color and I think I love it even more with navy!






Dress and Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft
Boots and Belt: Banana Republic
Watch: Marc Jacobs
Necklace: Francesca's

I am getting my hair color touched up tomorrow and I am seriously considering bangs. Check out some of the looks I pinned here for bangs and give me HONEST opinions. I haven't had this type of bangs since middle school. I really love the looks but I am a little nervous about it. I guess I could always side sweep them if I don't like them! Help me decide friends!! Thanks!!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!!

Nails: Longing for the Shore

OMG! I am tired! Believe it or not, I survived our year end close and the financial statement are on their way. Last week was exhausting and I ended up working about 60 hours. I spent this past weekend relaxing and enjoying my time to decompress.

I have always been a fan of Essie's Mint Candy Apple and was one of the people running to Ulta to get it the day it came out. A couple collections back, Essie released a similar color called Absolutely Shore. It's really close to the Mint Candy Apple but a little muddier if that makes sense. It's definitely light green but not sure a clean color. I really like this one and I almost think I like it more that the Mint one.




Have any of you tried this one? Thoughts?

I hope you guys are having a great week. Remember to check over at my other blog for random life updates.

Outfit: Comfy Casual

We are in year end close at work which means working late hours so I am going to make this short and sweet since I just got home a little bit ago. Some of you know I work at a fashion retailer. We have a company store on site that has some great deals. Everything is $6. I got this scarf there last week and love it! (and of course, it's purple!)




Jacket: Gap
Top: Banana Republic
Jeans: Express
Flats: RocketDog

I am off to let loose and rewind a bit. If you haven't yet, go to my new blog to check out my non-style related posts! Follow me there too! Have a great night.

Loving: Clutch

These past few weeks I have really scored some great deals between Banana Republic and Ann Taylor Loft, I feel like they are always running great sales. One of my latest purchases comes from Banana using a 40% off coupon plus a $10 rewards card I had that was expiring. 

I have been looking for a clutch that isn't too dressy to use for an average date out, or even an afternoon outing. I sometimes feel carrying an oversized handbag is a little much. I spotted this at BR a couple weeks ago and loved it so when I got the coupons---no brainer! 





I love that it's so lady-like. I really want to start carrying something smaller and I think this should be a good place to start. Any of you guys carry a clutch more often than a handbag? Share your links?

Outfit: Sunny Monday

Monday is over---the worst is over. Now it's that time where all of us patiently wait for the weekend. This past weekend I did a little shopping when the best friend was here and I got this great cardigan. I love this color and I have yet to purchase anything in it. I especially love the yellow with gray.



Jeans: Express
Tank and Cardi: Ann Taylor Loft
Wedges: Cynthia Vincent for Target

On a side note, I put a link to my Pinterest account in the side bar---follow me if you'd like and I would also love to follow you! Have a great week.

Finally Friday! Week in Pictures!

This week is over and all I have to say about that is thank God! I am so over this week that if I don't have a week like this one for years, it will be too soon. This morning I had a lot on my mind and as I was pulling out of my parking garage, I hit a car that was pulling into the condo. I was so focused on what I was thinking of that I was looking but not really seeing.

Luckily the woman I hit was so kind, she saw I was upset and was more concerned about me. She gave me a huge hug and told me she hopes my day gets better and to not worry about it. She may not have realized it but she made me feel so thankful that people like her still exist. Small gestures that really do go far.

I'm excited for this weekend, my best friend from Fort Lauderdale is coming to go shopping! I haven't had BFF alone time with her in about six months so it is long overdue!

Recap of my week in iPhone pics---

Running in 50* weather in shorts causes RED legs---took a while to warm up!

Look carefully, Fitz is waiting for us to eat. He was cracking me up!

My niece and her first time with pigtails! She's making a funny face too!

Homemade pizza, I even made the dough from scratch

Homemade goat cheese and chive souffle, they look a little deflated but they were tasty.

...and lastly, my scratches. Boo---we are thinking they may buff out but if not, we can just get the bumper repainted.


I hope you all have a great weekend. I am going to sit here and enjoy time with my family!

Love you all!
