Feeling a little springy today, I'm ready for some warmer weather! I'm in love with my new pants from Gap, they're perf! AND, right now for a limited time, you get $20 off when you try a pair on! Just more incentive to buy them!

Ever since I've been able to paint my nails whatever color and whenever, (since leaving HCO) I've become obsessed with not only painting them, but some brands as well! I'm sure you've all heard of or used OPI, also Nicole by OPI, but some you may not have heard of are Essie, Julep, and Butter London, and they are amazing! They really are better than the average nail polish at Walmart to some extent, but they're also a little pricier. Essie and OPI are about the same, around $7 a bottle, and Julep and Butter are the same at $14 a bottle. But you don't have to spend that much! OPI and Essie are large bottles, definitely worth it, and I get all my Julep in Mystery Boxes where you get at least 3 or 4 polishes plus other goodies! And they have great sales fairly often! Butter is the newest polish I've tried and all thanks to my bestie, Jenni, as a birthday gift!
You can get Essie and OPI at Target and even some Walmarts carry Essie now! Sephora carries Butter and Julep! (Among mannnny other amazing brands, Dior for example). But all sales and Mystery Boxes for Julep from through the website!
I hope this is helpful for venturing out into the nail polish world!

I am so sorry y'all, I've really been slacking since school started back, but I've been working on some new posts so more to come in the next couple days, promise!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day, I know I did! I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful husband! He got me beautiful flowers, delicious chocolate, and a giftcard for one of my favorite nail polish brands! He's the absolute best! I got him his favorite candy, a homemade card, and made his favorite, homemade lasagna! I'm also planning on taking him out to eat at this amazing local restaurant that he's never eaten at, but don't tell him, he doesn't know it yet! But he also doesn't read this blog so as long as no one tells we're safe haha. With his crazy work schedule it's been tough finding a time to go but hopefully next weekend!
|Me with my flowers and then in my apron cooking up some delicious lasagna!|
|The card I made him, I was pretty proud of it. |
P.S. the tomatoes are an inside joke.
|He was also excited that he got to go play golf while I was at school.|
|My yummy lasagna!|
(The recipe is in a previous post!)
|They're so beautiful and make the kitchen smell AMAZING!|
