    Kiss – Press On Nails

    It’s been a few years since I’ve had my nails professionally done. It’s a mix of not having time and not wanting to spend the money. So I have been painting my own nails for a while. However, if you’ve been following me for a while then you know my nail art skills have lots of room for improvement. So when I got a box of goodies sent to me from Influenster and Kiss, I was excited to see 2 packs of press-on-nails included. I was never one to get my nails done regularly at the salon but there was a stretch of time when I’d go a few times…

    Plush Camo Top

    Camo was a popular print last year and it’s on trend again this year. I’m all for the look, in certain pieces, and while I like the print I don’t think you need 10 different pieces in it. However, I did have to have this camo top for a few reasons. 1. It is made of a plush material so it is super soft and cozy. Seriously, buttery soft! 2. It is long enough to wear with leggings and has that casual, lounge wear feel and look to it. 3. It isn’t your typical green camo print. There are swirls of pink in the print, which I love. It makes…

    Book Review: The Enchanted Sonata

    The book I’m talking about today is extremely fitting for the holiday season. When I was asked if I wanted to read The Enchanted Sonata by Heather Dixon Wallwork and was given a synopsis, I immediately said yes. I like a wide range of books, but this kind of book really has a special place in my heart. The Enchanted Sonata is described as a retelling cross between The Nutcracker and The Pied Piper. It’s about a 16 year old girl named Clara who has been studying for years to become a famous pianist who is magically transported to another world where there are rats trying to invade cities and kill people and the candies are…

    Harry Potter Sugar Cookies

    So remember when I bought the Star Wars pancake molds from Williams-Sonoma? When I bought those I also bought Harry Potter cookie cutters. I’ve had a lot more success with the cookie cutters than with the pancake molds so far! For Thanksgiving I made a batch of sugar cookies with the cookie cutters. I decorated them with sprinkles in the colors of the Hogwarts houses. I know they’re not exactly the right shades of colors, but it’s the best I could do with supermarket sprinkles! With the exception of a couple of cookies where the imprint didn’t come out as deep and clear, they came out really good! I love…

    Highlighting Your Home

    Spending money on your home is often an investment well worth undertaking. In general anything you plough into your home adds value almost immediately so if you’re thinking of selling up and moving on, little to large changes can make all the difference. But maybe you’re not in the market for selling and simply want to update your look and make some changes, giving your home a new lease of life. Looking inside is often the easiest place to start. You probably spend most of your time in one room so start right there. Begin with the décor and then turn inwards to your furniture and fittings. How are those…

    Floral Medallion Print Top

    Quick post for you today on this floral medallion print top. I know half the time I say I’m going to do a quick post I end up rambling and making it longer than the average post, but I’m really intending to keep this one short today! This top is sleeveless, which is fine because I’m wearing it with my cozy soft grey cardigan anyway. I love the large floral medallion print and all the colors. When I got this top I didn’t realize it was sheer. I think because the back is solid so when I picked it up, it didn’t look sheer. But, no matter – I just…

    Hallmark Christmas Movies I Would & Have Watched Multiple Times

    If you know me, it’s no secret that I have a mild obsession with Hallmark movies. Sure they are predictable and many of them follow a similar formula – especially the romantic comedy ones. But I don’t care, I will still watch all the movies! The Christmas movies are especially my favorite. Some are much better than others. Some I watch and I really love and some I’m like eh, that was just okay. This season of Christmas movies on the channel started back at the end of October so I’ve already seen quite a few and there are still more to come leading up to the holiday. Some of…

    Living Proof – Perfect Hair Day Body Builder

    Happy Friday! It’s been a long and stressful week, but we’re finally at the weekend. Now only if the weekend can not fly by in the blink of an eye we’ll be good. Let’s talk about hair today. My hair is pretty soft and silky, but it’s fine so if I don’t blow dry it with a round brush, it can look flat. So when I saw a bunch of people on social media raving about Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Body Builder I wanted to try it. You can set the nozzle on the spray to give you more or less body. It’s easy to use – all you…

    Good Vibes

    With getting over a cold and a million things going on at work this week, I need all the good vibes I can get! I picked up this lightweight, good vibes thermal from Target when I placed an order for some Christmas decor. I wore it over the weekend, before my cold hit it’s peak, with cropped leggings and boot socks. Oh yeah, and don’t mind my unwrapped Christmas presents at the bottom of my tree. I need to finish shopping and wrap my presents. Top: Target | Leggings: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Socks: Aerie This was the perfect lounging outfit to stay in around the house. The top…
