I recently had a manicure and this particular time my manicurist used IBD's color Lust Polish UV Gel on my nails.  I liked this particular color on my nails and I also liked how my nails turned out:)  I'm linking up with Heather from Glitter & Gloss for her Mani Monday.

Here is a photo of my nails:



Look What I Got: Striped Top

H&M Top (similar), Old Navy Jeans (here), Nordstrom Rack Flats (similar), Better Life Bags "Brynnda" (here), Michael Kors Watch (similar), and Lillies & Silk Gold and Tortoise Bracelets.
Lately I've been shopping around for more striped tops to add to my collection, so while I was in H&M one day, I stumbled upon this striped top and it was only $9.95.  Score!  So, of course I had to buy it along with a few more, but different colors:) 
Linking up with Penniless Socialite...


Mani Monday

Today is Mani Monday, so I decided I would link up with Heather from Glitter & Gloss.  I'm wearing on my nails today an OPI GelColor called Big Apple Red.  I'm a huge fan of the color red, so this shade is probably one of my favorites.  I've already linked up and I hope you do as well:)  Here is a photo of my manicure:


I Got The Blues

Blue Blazer (H&M), Yellow Peplum Top (Forever 21), Wide Leg Jeans JBrand via (TJ Maxx), Worthington Sophie Tall Brown Boots via (JC Penney), Handbag Louis Vuitton via (Saks Fifth Avenue), Watch Michael Kors via (ebay), and Basilissa-Pave Bracelet (ILY COUTURE).

Happy Hump Day Everyone!  It's hard to believe that it's Wednesday already, and my boys have finally returned back to school:)  Also, it's hard to believe that my house has been on the market for a month now and although we've had many eager house hunters have stopping by, we still don't have a buyer:(  However, I believe with all my heart when the time is right my house will sale, if not now soon.  Even if it means my boys and I will remain in Indiana till our house sells while my husband begins his new job in Maryland, I will continue to pray that our house sales soon:)

What I Wore Today was my blue blazer, a yellow peplum top, a pair of wide leg jeans, my Louis Vuitton handbag, a gold watch and my pave ILY COUTURE bracelet.


Scenic Colorado

For the last several of years my family and I have decided to opt out of spending time with our families for the holidays, and instead we'll spend quality time with the four of us.  So, for this Christmas this year we decided to visit Colorado again with some friends of ours to go skiing, since we enjoyed our first skiing experience.  Here are some of the photos that I took on our ride up the mountain in Colorado:

Merry Christmas Everyone!!
