Friday Fingers! *Easter/Pastel Tips*

Friday, March 29, 2013

Happy Good Friday! We have made it to Easter weekend! For this edition of Friday Fingers I wanted to do something with spring colors without going blown Easter (a.k.a. no chickies on the digits)! Which brings me to the pastel tips...

Target Spring 2013 Haul

Thursday, March 28, 2013

It's no secret...I LOVE Target! I go in for one thing and leave the store pushing a shopping cart out to my car! Recently, due to following "targetdoesitagain" on instagram (I highly suggest following), I have now been doing a lot of clothing shopping at Target.

I picked up some really cute spring/summer items from Xhilaration, Merona and Mossimo. I've included the original prices and what I actually paid for them. I also noted the size and color I'm wearing and added a link if the item is still available.

How-to: Host a Stella & Dot Party

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

As promised, this is my second part of my Stella & Dot experience!

I've heard of many in-home jewelry party companies. When I was working in high school my co-workers would host Silpada parties, never went nor purchased. Then I went to a Lia Sophia party that one of my mom's co-workers was hosting. I had a great time and made three purchases that night (I was only satisfied with one of them). That party, however, made me want to host my own jewelry show.

I went home and researched to find the perfect jewelry brand for me which was Stella & Dot. It's a young, fun and stylish line of jewelry worn by celebrities and featured in nation-wide magazines. If you've never heard of Stella & Dot check out my collection.

My Style: Stella & Dot Collection

Monday, March 25, 2013

Jewelry, for me, is right up there with handbags (love, love, love). I love jewelry because it can make an old outfit look new again without spending a lot of money.

This post I opted to make a video to show you my collection because I thought it would be easier than showing you a bunch of photos.

Lay's Flavor Finalist - Sriracha

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

In case you didn't know, Lay's is having a "Do Us a Flavor" contest. There are three flavor finalists: Sriracha, Chicken & Waffles and Cheesy Garlic Bread. This is my brief and but hopefully informative review of the Sriracha flavor.

I said this would be a brief review because I am not a chef nor do I have an extensive palate. I am a proud picky eater.

I found my bag of chips at the local Weis Markets. I purchased the chips for $3.50 with my awesome Weis gold memeber card (move over amex black card).

In the beginning I said this blog was going to be for makeup, fashion and cats. Well, here is my first of many blog entries about cats! If you're not a cat person, keep reading this might give you a change of heart.

I am a proud mom of a 12 year old furbaby named Lucifer. Lucifer is a handsome American Shorthair black tabby with stunning mint chocolate chip eyes. I adopted him Forgotten Felines and Fidos which ran weekend adoption events in a shopping center which is now a Target. He will always be my best friend. Bible.

Friday Fingers! *Essie Spring 2013*

Friday, March 15, 2013

We've made it through another week! I apologize for not putting put another blog entry this week. It has been crazy and last night was the only night I was home before 8 p.m. With that spare time I made dinner while getting caught up on Millionaire Matchmaker, did laundry (ugh!) and painted my nails for Friday Fingers!

I also made a trip to my favorite place on earth... Target! I ran into one of my past students and a reader of the blog, Jade (hey!), and she knew I was picking up some polish for my weekly blog post.

I am a huge fan of essie nail polish. I love their fun, vibrant colors but also their pale, sweet colors. Good news, it's a diverse collection. Bad news, I only own a small chunk of it. This week is again a post on essie. I picked up a new color from their Spring 2013 line.

Activewear Haul

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

I must admit I'm not a very active person. I would much rather lay in bed all day and watch TV or check movies off my Netflix queue. Just because I don't like to get sweaty doesn't mean the yoga pant isn't my BFF. When I get home from work I immediately get into a comfy pair of sweats.

The reason for this activewear haul isn't because I need anymore lounging around clothes though. I recently have become the assistant girls lacrosse coach. I know I'm not the sporty type. I'm the first one to admit I wore cashmere gloves to the first practice. Go ahead and laugh but my hands were super warm during the windy practice.

Friday Fingers!

Friday, March 1, 2013

Hello friends! I've decided that every Friday I am going to show off my nails for the weekend! For those of you that don't know me... I have a nail polish obsession! If I do some intricate nails, I'll be sure to add a tutorial.

This week, I just stuck with a simple manicure. I chose the color I am strong by essie from their 2012 breast cancer collection. This pink is creamy and dreamy. I LOVE pink nail polish!
