Sheer Perfection!

18 Jul

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes. By sheer I mean that they’re almost like a clear polish with a slight pink tint to them.

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my favorite 3 that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer. Also these beautiful understated hues are perfect for your wedding day.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be. It’s the shiniest and longest wearing of the three as well.

Note: All three colors can be built up but remain sheer.

Wedding Heels (Under $100)

7 May

CALLING ALL BRIDES TO BE>>>> Wedding season is right around the corner and if you’re a bride to be, you may already know that searching for the right wedding heel can be a daunting task.  I have been asked numerous times about my wedding heels so I thought I’d share them with you and a few more styles that I love- all under $100.  My 4th wedding anniversary is fast approaching and I still remember the last-minute STRESS of finding the right heel. That all ended when I stumbled upon this picture on Pinterest! nina  I had to have these heels!  After searching I found out they were by Nina shoes. It was a breath of fresh air finding a brand that had so many wedding heels at decent prices. Your wedding heels should accent your dress without stealing the show and the price shouldn’t break the bank! Nina shoes also come in a variety of colors so they’re perfect for bridesmaids or for the bride looking to wear a pop of color on her special day. Hopefully this post will help you find your perfect heel. Cheers! And congrats on your upcoming nuptials! Below are some of my favorite wedding heels starting from lowest heel height to highest.  Nina Culver Heel Height 2.5″ nina culver Nina Forbes Heel Height 3″ Nina forbes Nina Vinnie Heel Height 3.5″ Nina Vinnie nina vinnie back Nina Vianna Heel Height 3.5″ Nina vianna Nina Electra (my wedding heels) Heel Height 4″ Nina Electra Nina Cabaret Heel Height 4″ nina cabaret Nina Cosmos Heel Height 4″ Nina cosmos

Wear Your Memories With This Cool Bracelet!

19 Dec

I think I may have found the coolest bracelet EVER!  I have always loved industrial, yet feminine jewelry, so I was instantly smitten when I layed eyes on these.  Coordinates Collection bracelets and rings are great because they show the latitude and longitude of any place in the world that you choose. You can pick a place where you first met someone, went to school or had a life achievement i.e. graduation, baby, marriage etc.  That’s not all……on the inside,  you can get a special date engraved and a message as well. These are just so cool and I’m gonna be wearing mine all the time!!!!

Coordinates rings start at $130 and bracelets start at $204. The price depends on the style and the material. For example the plated bracelets start at a couple hundred dollars and the solid rose or yellow gold can set you back thousands of dollars. You can also add birthstones for a bit extra as well. The pieces are all unisex  and come in different sizes. Although they may be an investment piece, these wearable memories will be with you for a lifetime!

Not a ring person? How cute are these bracelets  instead of wedding rings?!!! Just a thought. Get all matchy matchy with your hubby or wife!
