Thanksgiving Survival Guide

So, Thanksgiving is TOMORROW! Not quite sure how that happened, but other than one final trip to the market, I think I’m ready. Now that I know what I’m putting on the table, time to figure out what I’m putting on myself. I think Thanksgiving is the perfect day to channel a younger, chicer Martha Stewart. Think pre-prison days. Anyway, here’s how I’m going to survive the holiday.

That being said… I’m all about the naked nail trend that is happening.… Read More

Christmas-time is in the air! You know what that means… you guessed it. The *NSYNC christmas album circa ’98 will be playing on repeat from now until New Years Day. Totally not kidding BTW, but actually I was thinking more along the lines of SHOPPING SEASON… it’s officially begun. Forget about battling crowds and freezing my a** off on Black Friday. Sounds like an anxiety attack waiting to happen, no thx! I prefer to do my shopping from my fav place in the world… my couch. Cuddling up with my pup, a hot cup of tea, my laptop, and a tacky Lifetime Christmas movie sounds like a wayyyyy better way to spend the day 🙂 Yes, ’tis the season to give, but hey, you’ve also gotta treat yourself every now &then day.… Read More

Though the Ombre craze has been around for quite some time now… I am still absolutely loving it. There are so many ways to rock this trend and we have been seeing it everywhere from hair to ombre denim, but I am especially loving ombre nails! There are so many ways to apply this trend to your manicure. Each nail can go from light to dark, or you can choose to let the variation spread across all five fingers.… Read More
