The Nail Files: Red My Lips

I'm a big fan of gel nail polish, and recently I've been getting CND Shellac gel nail polish on my nail, however it doesn't seem to last 2 weeks for me unfortunately :(  So, I decided to give Sally Hansen a try, and I purchased my Pro Gel Polish Kit at Target for about $60 dollars.  Although, I've only had my gel nail polish on for a couple of days now, so far I love it.  I'll definitely keep everyone posted on whether or not it my gel polish holds up :)

Wordless Wednesday: Mount Wachusett

My family and I are visiting my in laws for a week in Boston, and on this particular evening we decided to drive instead of hike up the top of Mount Machusett.  While there I was able to snap beautiful photos of the scenery around me, and the ski area that's located there as well.  Here are some photos of my evening on the mountain:

Mani Monday: Nirvana

Today's Mani Monday, which means I got a chance to paint my nails again.  YEAH!  For today, I applied two coats of Sinful Colors Professional Nail Laquer Nirvana and for my base & top coat I applied Sally Hansen Xtreme Hard as Nails.  Also, I loved how the color of my nail polish came out as well:)

Look What I Got: Joe Fresh Pieces

Yesterday, my husband and I got a chance to spend some quality time together and while we were out we stopped by the mall.  One of the stores we stopped by was JC Penney's, and I've been eyeing their Joe Fresh Collection for some time now, but I've never bought any pieces.  While looking through the collection, I saw several pieces that caught my eye and all three happened to be on sale.  The original price would've been $63, but I only paid $36.  SCORE!  Now, I can't wait to style them:)

Wordless Wednesday: Another Day at the Beach

Since my family and I have relocated to Maryland, there is nothing like being able to go to the beach.  It also helps that we're 30 minutes away from the beach as well.  So, when I'm able to snap some photos of the ocean, I try to do so.  Here are some photos of my day at the beach, one photo is of the ocean and the other is a photo of several kite fliers flying their kites while at the beach.

PS...I'm thinking about becoming a Stella & Dot Stylist, so I thought that I would give it a whirl by hosting a two week online Stella & Dot Trunk Show.  By doing so, I get to see what's like to be a stylist, however I need your help.  If there's any jewelry or you see an accessory you would like to purchase, please shop here.  Also, for the month of June for every $50 dollars you spend, you will earn $25 in Dot Dollars:)  Fun, huh?  So, now go check out my link and tell me what you think:)
