NOLA hurrah- part 2


If you saw the last post, you’ll notice that I basically am going to post the same shoes in every vacation post! While I wear heels most days at work (when I’m really not walking much at all), when walking around on vacation (and when running errands, for example), I absolutely must must must wear comfortable footwear! I’ve suffered from plantar fasciitis a number of times and swear by my Crocs sandals for long distances. If you’ve ever been in the same foot boat, I recommend trying out Crocs. They really have come a long way from their standard clogs to having shoes that pair pretty easily with dresses. And no, I’m not paid by Crocs 🙂 Have a good one, readers!

Dress: Forever 21 (a lot of years ago! But I think around $20)

Denim top: thrifted ($3)

Shoes: Crocs ($40 marked down from $60)

It’s #monthlymani time again! This month we picked a #Aprilshowers theme. I created a cloud theme by sponging color on my nails with a tissue; super easy! Be sure to head over to Kristi to check out her #Aprilshowers #monthlymani! And join us next month for the #Mayflowers theme!


happy halloween!

What a delay in posting, readers! I am sorry for the longer than planned delay…but I have good reason! …I was on my honeymoon! Yes, my husband and I got married last year, but we decided to take our honeymoon for our first anniversary. So, we packed our bags and headed to southern Germany and Austria. Some highlights from the trip are below!

Doesn’t it just look like a fairytale?! We really enjoyed our trip, though unfortunately I got quite sick upon our return (hence another week delay in posting). But, I’m back! And just in time for Halloween and the #MonthlyMani. This month’s theme was a Halloween movie; of course, I picked Nightmare Before Christmas, which is one of my most favorite movies! Be sure to head over to Kristi to check out her Halloween movie themed #monthlymani too!

Happy Halloween, readers! And thanks for your patience while I was out! See you again soon! XO

all for fall (nail edition)

I’ve officially shed my pastel and neon polishes and embraced deep hues for fall! This month’s theme for the #monthlymani is the summer to fall transition! Below you can see this week’s manicure, as well as a few from falls in the past. I chose to do an ombre effect glitter for this week, but you can see in the adjacent photo that  I went with all out glitter last year!
