Easy Valentine’s Day Manicure

Valentine-Nail-Collage

It’s super fun to get your nails done by a professional. I personally go just for the five minutes they give you a hand massage. But going all the time can get really expensive. Here is a fun new way to decorate your nails for a great price:

1. Paint your nails with a solid colored paint.

For Valentine’s Day, pinks and reds work great. You could also paint them white for a clean work palette. Let them dry completely. (continue reading…)

My New Favorite Lip Color

I love lipstick, of any kind, especially during this chilly season when my lips are so white you’d think I was dead.

So I am incredibly happy to announce this new amazing lip pencil by CoverGirl. It is the jumbo gloss balm from the Queen collection. I got the Disco Punch shade and I’m in love.

It is large like a crayon, so it is super easy to apply, but it is glossy, so it gives you just the most perfect translucent natural color. It also stays on even after eating.

AND to top it all off, it’s less than $10!

Happy Fashion Friday!

I was a bridesmaid in my sweet, precious, wise, gorgeous friend Cheryl’s wedding this past weekend. It was a romantic location, perfect weather and an absolutely gorgeous event.

All the bridesmaids were allowed to pick out their own dress, as long as it was blue green. I am blown away at how well our dresses went together. And we didn’t even see them all ahead of time! I got mine at Ross for $15! Cheapest bridesmaid dress ever!

The turquoise dresses with red accents made my little heart so happy. And Cheryl’s dress was breathtaking.

I decided to do my hair in the milkmaid braid and got huge compliments on it. Yay! I even did my friend Laura & Katie’s hair. If it’s a braid, I can do it!

(I’m hoping in the near future to do a “30 Days Of Braids” with daily tutorials on different braided hairstyles. Would that interest anyone?)

Lastly it was so fun to catch up with old friends at the reception and hang out with my husband sans kiddos. He even danced on the dance floor with me, which if you know my husband is a BIG DEAL!!

Congratulations Glen & Cheryl! It is apparent to anyone who meets you how much you love each other and I’m excited for you to start your life together! God bless!
