    Mixed Berry Trifle

    Happy 4th of July! Are you guys (in the US) doing anything fun to celebrate the holiday? I’ve always loved 4th of July because of the fireworks and if you didn’t know fireworks are one of my favorite things ever. Growing up, I was hardly ever home for the 4th of July. My mom had a store and would close for the week of the 4th so my family would always go away on vacation during that week.

I think there were just a handful, or less, times that I was actually in my hometown for the holiday.

    4th of July Nails

    Happy 4th of July to all my readers who celebrate! I am actually in Canada visiting family for the long weekend, but am showing some patriotic pride through my nails and my blue top that I’m wearing today (a post featuring what I wore throughout my trip coming soon). After looking at different July 4th inspired nail art online, I decided to do one that looked the easiest to do. Here is what I did and please keep in mind that I am not a good nail artist! I definitely need more practice because my hands aren’t that steady. I did the best I could and of course my left…
