Some days, it just feels like when it rains, it pours. Today started out as one of those days. But, I called my mom (always helps). And then, I opened a magazine and the first photo was this:

The quote is a little hard to read, but it says, “Keep your heels, head, and standards high.” -Coco Chanel. Coco, Mom, my sis G, I am feeling this vibe. Sometimes, you feel down, or scared, or worried, but you have to keep your head held high and have faith (and wear the right shoes).

It’s #monthlymani time again! This month the inspiration was a beach theme-! I painted an octopus and then its tentacles over both hands. 🙂

  1. Love the outfit. Hopefully the beautiful outfit you wore made you feel better, I know a great outfit does that for me. Cheers, Michele

  2. I love this saying, if you dress like a slob you will act like a slob. If you dress in an outfit that you feel great in your mood will be so positive throughout the day.

  3. Oh my gosh your nails are SO cute! I love, love, love the super cute little octopus guy and the tentacles along the rest of the nails is the cutest!! Cutest beach themed mani ever! 😉
