Blogmas 2014 – Day 19: Weekend Mani

Happy FRIDAYYYYY & Blogmas Day 19! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s been a crazy day & this weekend is about to be just as hectic. Lot’s of plans – but I can’t wait!

Before any of the fun can go down, I need to pick out what color I want for my weekend mani. I narrowed it down to 6 polishes… H-E-L-P! –>

Long Lost Spring + Summer Mani’s

I have a bizarre & obsessive habit of photographing my fingernails quite frequently. That being said, I’ve accumulated a camera roll full of long lost manicures that never made their way to my blog or socialย pages over the last few months.

In an effort to free up some space on my phone, I recently uploaded all of the photos from my iphone to my laptop – giving me a chance to relive some of the fabulous mani’s that I had throughout the Spring/Summer.

I wanted to share some of those shots with my fellow mani-lovers, so I’ve pulled some of my favorites to post!

I tried to note any polish details that I remembered as well.

Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Clearly, my favorite place to snap a mani pic is in myย car lol…it’s that natural lighting ;). There were so many fun colors the past two seasons!

As the colderย temps are setting in, I’ve been wearing a ton of new Fall/Winter polishes. I’ve been posting them on my Instagram – you can follow me &ย check them out here! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wrapping up 2013!

The past week has been a busy one! With Christmas, New Years, and everything in between, it’s been a whirlwind. 2013 was an amazing year & I have only the highest expectations for the next three hundred and sixty five days! I’m glad I’ve semi-kept up with my blog! Today is technically it’s 2 year anniversary. I started this little side-project as a 2012 New Years resolution. Since then, it’s become more of a journal/scrap book for myself – and for friends and family to see what I’ve been up to. I prefer posting updates and pictures here as opposed to Facebook – I hope to continue building my little baby in the new year:)

To wrap up 2013, I wanted to share some pictures from the holidays! ๐Ÿ™‚

The last day of work before Christmas, my boss surprised my coworker & I with new sets of golf clubs! I'm excited to upgrade :)

Date Night at Randy’s Wooster St. Pizza

Friday night my boyfriend and I went to Randy’s Wooster St. Pizza in Manchester. Seeing as we are currently in the middle of lent, pizza was the perfect dinner choice for those who abide by the no meat rule (me!)

We got there and had a little bit of a wait so I started snapping some pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

An older couple thought we were on our first date...no we're just always laughing and snapping pictures, Sir lol
Balloon to the face...I don't really get it lol...

Once we were seated we decided to kill some time with the cup of crayons on our table ๐Ÿ˜‰

We're really talented...

We ordered a couple sodas (I know! I felt like SUCH a cheater, but I was craving a diet coke…and water does not pair well with pizza), and our large pizza. I flipped the menu to see if they had any yummy dinner salads when I saw THEM….. Mike knew the deal, so we got an order of…

Fried Pickles!

I am OBSESSED with fried pickles, and O-M-G these did not dissappoint…we put a good dent in the plate ๐Ÿ˜‰

YUM!

Our pizza was huge…

Hamburger & olives for Mike, broccoli and onions for me ๐Ÿ™‚ I would have loved to try their pepperoni-next time!
Mmm mmm mmmm <3

We were legitimately stuffed, but had plenty of leftovers to take home (you better believe I had fried pickles for breakfast Saturday morning).

We decided to rent J. Edgar, I was bored so I had a photosoot with myself…

I think that this is the creepiest picture I have ever taken LOL

And to round it out, a shot of my mid-week mani!

Sinful Colors "Nirvana" polish

My idea of a perfect Friday night! ๐Ÿ™‚
