I was in need of a manicure today, so I thought I would go ahead and give myself one:) So, I began to trim and file my nails. I chose the color red, and I used SinfulColors Professional Nail Enamel Ruby Ruby and Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Invisible as my top coat.
Here's a photo of my manicure:
I found a couple of cute dresses at Target recently, one is stripped, the other has a floral print on it and both were under $20. SCORE! You know I had to buy them. Also, while looking at another clearance rack, I spied a white sleeveless peplum and it was only $16, so I bought it too. Nothing's like a good sale:)
During my boys Spring Break, we got a chance to visit some of the attractions in Salisbury and in Baltimore. On this particular day, we decided to visit The Ward Museum of Waterfowl Art. The museum had showcased paintings and numerous decoys throughout the museum. Before we visited, I had no idea this art even existed, so it was definitely a learning experience for me:)
Here are some of the photos of our visit:

Of course one of the nicest things about charm bracelets is that they can be so personalized, but even better than that they can tell a story. A charm bracelet is something that can grow as you grow and your story gets longer. Choosing a theme or simply adding new charms at special points in your life, there are so many things to take inspiration from. Here’s some inspiration from Links of London on how varied and lovely they can be.
Oh the places I have been!
Building a charm bracelet as a memento of the places you have been is a wonderful way to keep them close to you. But it doesn’t have to only be about far-flung cities – it could be pieces that remind of you of home.
The Story of a Lifetime
Adding a charm to signify an important change or event in your life is not only a treat but it will leave you with something really special to remember them all by. This could be big things like buying a house for the first time or symbolic of reaching a more personal goal.
A Talisman’s Tale
A charm may not be able to guarantee good luck but it can remind you of how lucky you are – it’s surely a bonus that it will look so pretty too.
Top tip: We probably all have tiny keepsakes and
teeny trinkets from when we were children or
ones we've picked up along the way. Why not
add these to a charm bracelet too?
What theme would you choose?

It's so hard to believe that this coming fall, my family and I would've been in our home for 8 years and this coming Friday I sign the closing papers on it. Yes, our home sold, and I've been a busy bee packing, throwing out stuff, cleaning, running numerous errands and anything else that has to do with moving, but it will be over soon:)
For my outfit today, I decided to wear a floral top I purchased from H&M. I chose to pair my top with colored skinny jeans, I added a nude handbag and flats too. For my accessories, I added a pop of color to my wrist with 2 chain bracelets that I made myself and my Stella & Dot Renegade Bracelet.

My boys were on Spring Break last week and we were blessed that we got a chance to fly out and spend the week with my husband in Maryland. While there, we got a chance to visit some of the attractions and one of them was the Salisbury Zoological Park. My boys are huge animal lovers, so I knew that they would want to go and that they would enjoy it the zoo. While there we got a chance to see some pretty neat animals.
Linking up with Crafty Spices for the Wordless Wednesday Hop, hope to see you there:)
