Summer Days.

Happy Memorial Weekend Y’all!

I hope you all are having a wonderful, holiday weekend! I started the weekend off with a little bit of work (cause that’s retail life), and my grandpa and great uncle are visiting from North Dakota! Everyone has just been hanging out at home, enjoying the really warm weather that mother nature has blessed us with! I am thoroughly enjoying it, and I definitely do not want to go back to work tomorrow. 

I feel like Memorial Weekend is the official ‘unofficial’ kickoff to the summer season! Since we weren’t camping because of our family being here, we did have a really nice bonfire last night!

First official bonfire of the summer!

I also have been getting back into the swing of going for a walk every night! My mom usually comes with me, and once in a while my little brother Dylan tags along. I haven’t done much shopping lately due to bills, but I am going to get the Endless Weekend trio from BBW! That will probably be the only thing that I buy until the SAS– which I am STOKED for! 

Bailey update–She is adjusting really well in our home! She is still in the stage where she thinks that we’re going to leave her, so she is constantly by your side. If you leave the room, she is right there with you. When we take her back to the vet to get fixed, I know she’s going to freak out, but when we pick her up afterwards I know she’ll be very happy to see us! 🙂 

I really want to bake and cook more since I am living at home. I want to start eating a lot healthier, and find ways to make recipes that may not be so healthy, into more healthy options! Pinterest has a lot of great ideas out there to get started! 

For my OOTD today, I decided to do some pattern mixing! It was my first time so I didn’t do anything crazy. I did google if cheetah & camo mixed well together. (I know, how sad.) The top is from Victoria’s Secret PINK, and the shorts are from Old Navy! I paired the outfit with some metallic gold strappy sandals from Madden Girl. My nails are ‘Alpine Snow’ by OPI, which I am currently OBSESSED!Image

 

I hope y’all are having a wonderful weekend, and i’ll catch up soon!

 

What’s On My Nails: November 2013

The fall and winter time are my favorite seasons when it comes to nail color. Don’t get me wrong, I love the bright colors you usually put on your nails during the spring and summer, but there is just something about the darker fall and holiday colors that just draw me in! I am going to be sharing with you the polishes that I wore on my fingernails and one color I wore on my toes!

I have always used the same base and top coat since I started really getting into nail care, and these products are staples in my everyday nail polish collection! The top coat that I use is by L’Oreal and is called ‘One stop Base’. This is a very nice base coat and it really helps the polish that I choose stick to the nail and not chip so quickly. The top coat that I use is by Sally Hansen and it is the ‘Anti-Chip Top Coat’. I’ve been using this top coat for quite some time and I can say that I like this better than the OPI top coat that comes in the mini gift sets you can buy. With the work that I do in my current job, this combo really helps my nail polish last!

The first polish i’ll talk about is the polish I painted on my toes which is by Revlon. This polish is number 660 and is named ‘Divine’. This is a gorgeous deep red polish. This was part of their fall collection I believe, and when I saw this on the shelf I knew I just had to have it! And Revlon polishes are fairly affordable, so I could justify the purchase 🙂 This polish went beautifully onto my toenails and is still on there with little to no wear off! I will definitely be using this on my nails in the upcoming months!

Now i’m going to talk about the first polish that I wore on my nails this month. This is another Revlon polish, and this one is number 220 ‘Rainforest’. This is a colorstay polish and let me tell you that it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I was on the hunt for a forest/hunter green colored polish for a while and when I saw this I immediately knew this was the one! This is a beautiful forest green with yellow shimmers in it. I am absolutely in love with this polish.

For my next polish combo I used OPI’s ‘Decades of Shades’ which is a basic milky brown, and then on top of that I layered OPI’s ‘Warm and Fozzie’ from the Muppets collection. This combo wasn’t my favorite of the month, but it was a different color combination that I had never tried before! I may go back to the Warm and Fozzie polish soon!

My next combo contained the classic style of the ‘Accent Nail’. I used Orly’s ‘Rage’ for the accent nail. A lot of people have this polish in their collection and I don’t blame them! This is the most beautiful rose gold nail polish I have ever laid eyes on. When I saw people rave about it on YouTube and then I saw it in stores, I knew it would be mine. Paired with this polish I have Avon’s ‘Berry Bliss’ which is a beautiful deep berry color. This is a perfect polish for the holidays so I know I will be turning to this polish again before the end of the season.

The last polish i’m going to share is called ‘Haze of Love’ and it is by Wet n’ Wild Megalast. This is another berry color but this is more of a pinky toned berry with a small grey undertone. Although when I put it on my nails it came out much darker, I still really love this polish. The brush is kind of hard to work with but overall I am very pleased with this polish, especially due to how cheap this was.

So I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it gave you some ideas for new polishes to pick up. Cause what girl has enough polishes already?! I know I sure don’t! 😉
