So I’ve been completely MIA from my blog since I’ve been vacationing with my family in the Bahamas this week, and I miss it! I had every intention of getting some posts in while away, but we’ve been doing so many fun things, and I’ve been too darn relaxed to even pick up my computer (too much reading, tanning, swimming, and pina colading for my own good)!
It’s been so nice to disconnect and take some time to enjoy the beautiful weather and my family. I haven’t been away in a while 🙂
I can’t wait to organize all of my pictures- I have so many fun things to share!
Just wanted to give a quick hello, I hope that everyone is having a good week! 🙂
I love Valentine’s Day- it is one of my favorite holiday’s…and why shouldn’t it be? It’s a day devoted to love!
It upsets me when people get bitter because they are single- whether you are spending it with a boyfriend, girlfriend, family, or friends- there is someone out there who loves you! Take the day remind the ones that you love just how special they are!
I have a lot of Valentines…
I hope that you get the chance to spend some time with your loved ones today!
As you know, I am in love with my gel manicures– when I was home for the Superbowl I did the cutest Valentines Day inspired Gelish mani on my sister, and I couldn’t wait to share.
We used three Gelish mini colors:
Stand Out is more vibrantly red than the above image, we decided to paint that on her thumb and pinky nails, Rendezvous dries much more hot pink, we put that on her index and ring nails and Exhale, a light pink/mauve color went on her middle.
I love how this manicure came out- it’s still clean, but it has a fun twist. We even considered adding a small white heart to a couple of fingers.
Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays, and pairing it with a cute manicure makes it that much better. 🙂
Oh how I wish I were one of those girls who was perfectly content with carrying a small handbag consisting of my wallet, keys and cell phone. But I’m not, I am the girl who get’s anxiety when I have to choose which precious items to bring in a small clutch on a night out.
I don’t understand how a woman can feel comfortable leaving the house without certain “just in case” items. While organizing my purse last week, I decided to lay everything out and try to downsize. Needless to say, I wasn’t terribly successful.
After de-cluttering I was left with the following:
Tire pressure checker?
Nail polish remover pads
4 lip glosses
1 lip stick
A computer/phone screen cleaner
A small sewing kit
In the black bag are bobby pins, a small lint roller and other misc. items. Also, not photographed are my keys, cell and on-the-go makeup bag*
Normally, carrying this many items in one bag would be a messy nightmare, but lucky for me, I have a FABULOUS as seen on TV product that is actually super practical and 100% effective. The Kangaroo Keeper!
It’s so perfect for any purse, particularly a bag with no structure.
Do you carry any of the same things as me? Or are you one of the lucky-to-be-low maintenance ladies?
I absolutely LOVE candles, I burn them at home, at work, everywhere! I was so intrigued, because these aren’t your average candles- each one actually has a ring inside… a ring that ranges in price from $10-$5,000! Once the candle burns down, you retrieve your jewels.
How fun is this?! It’s like a girly Cracker Jack box with a better prize, and less calories!
Diamond Candles carry nearly every scent, and each one is only $24.95. I cannot wait to order mine!
To learn more about their company and scope out some of the other gems that have been found check out their Facebook page.
Have you or anyone you know bought a Diamond Candle? Let me know what kind of ring you found! 🙂
