My Easter Nails

Happy Thursday everyone!

I can't believe Easter is this Sunday.
It came SO quickly! 

I'm heading home this weekend, so I'm really excited.
I decided to do my nails in an Easter theme as well. It was actually really simple to do.

 I simply used a dotting tool and used it to create the bunny eyes and noses. And used a toothpick to create the bunny. 

Real simple and easy to do, and gets a lot of attention. Haha.
Someone even asked if I had my nails done. :)

Anyway, not sure if I could post tomorrow, if I can't I'll post Saturday..

Have a great night everyone!

Outfits Lately

Happy Hump Day!

Just going to share outfits from the last two days. 
It seems like I am getting a lot of requests from them. 

So here are two from the last two days of work. 
I work in a professional office setting. 
Something I'm still trying to get use to. 
So I'm trying to dress more professional. It's actually a lot harder then you think. :)

Please excuse my bed, it's 6:30 in the morning, and I'm trying to get the door, not make my bed.  photo IMG_2720_zpsbb322c3f.jpg  photo IMG_2721_zps14fbd4c7.jpg  photo IMG_2722_zps72524c4a.jpg  photo IMG_2723_zps37b489a5.jpg  photo IMG_2724_zps0cf4e9c5.jpg  photo IMG_2725_zpsf18462df.jpg  photo IMG_2731_zpse3a8fb7f.jpg

Little Itty Bitty Haul

Happpppppy Friday!

It's the weekend, finally

I made it through my first full week of work. 
That's a good sign right?
I don't even think I made the CFO mad. Haha

Anyway, last weekend we went to the Philadelphia Premium Outlets to shop for some new "career" clothes. 
Yes, I called them "career" clothes. 
Hell, I even created a "Work/Office Outfits" board on my Pinterest!
That's right!

Everyone there dresses so professional I feel like my dressy clothes are their weekend attire. haha.
So I did some clothes shopping.
But besides clothes shopping I wanted to get some other things, like a lunch bag!
I've always used a Hello Kitty one from the $1 section at Target, but I feel like that would be frowned upon at my place of employment. 
So I decided to go with a Vera Bradley. 

 photo DSC01640_zpsa7df524d.jpg  photo DSC01641_zpse3b06456.jpg  photo DSC01642_zpscbb895a0.jpg

 It was originally $34.99, but they were having a sale, so I got it for $14.99!

 photo DSC01643_zpsdb80a90e.jpg 

It's the perfect size for my sandwich and water! 

 photo DSC01644_zps93bf48d8.jpg

I also went to Bath and Body. I know I feel like I live there. 
But they have AMAZING coupons. Like for instance...

I got all this stuff for $16.95!

 photo DSC01645_zpsb24213b5.jpg

And can I say that the Strawberry hand and body cream smells exactly like strawberries. It's my favorite scent, anything with strawberries. 

 photo DSC01646_zps1e92cc7e.jpg

How adorable is this hand soap? Looks like a little mason jar! $12.00

 photo DSC01647_zps83289d06.jpg 

 And lastly this Sun Rasperry Tea for $7.99 

  photo DSC01648_zpsc09916c6.jpg 

I had a coupon for a free item with any $10 purchase. And since I bought the candle and the hand cream she gave me the most expensive thing for free! So I got $12 off!  That was real sweet of the kind girl and to top it off, I left with another coupon, damnit! haha.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend, I'm looking forward to this one because a friend is coming to visit! Yayyy!!!

Happy Friday!

Giveaway Winner & Ciate Cavier Replica

Wow, I can't believe I didn't blog Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday! Ahh!

Let's just say I'm trying to get into the swing of things.
If you don't already know, I started a new job, a career job, so I've be overwhelmed with everything that comes with it. More on that another time.

I want to say HELLO to my new followers! :D 
Thanks for stopping by my little blog. 

I'm going to be announcing the winner of the DIY Anthropologie elastic headband giveaway.
On MONDAY, I'm going to be giving away something fantastic for my followers. I can't wait to announce it, I'm kind of overwhelmingly excited for it. And on Monday you'll see why. :)

Anyway, the winner is....



The winner is:
Please contact me! :)

Thanks SO much for everyone who entered! :D

So two weekends ago, yes that's right two, I did a little bit of shopping. I stopped at Claires and Bath and Body Works. 

Claires has some awesome nail art things right now. I picked up two things. They were buy one get the 2nd half off. 

 photo DSC01634_zpseb6d7ad9.jpg

I picked up these two items. 
I really wanted Ciate's black cavier nail art. But couldn't bring myself to pay so much for it, plus shipping. 
So you can imagine how excited I was when I found this, and it is only $8.50.

 photo DSC01635_zpsc6058484.jpg

I also came across this nail art set. Comes with more cavier beads, plus pearls, studs, and rhinestones. I think this will be fun to play around with! It was $5.50, but I got this one for half off. Not bad right?

   photo DSC01637_zps8bfe831f.jpg  photo DSC01638_zps56a2f97d.jpg I also went to Bath & Body Works because on Facebook they were giving away a bunch of the new Beautiful Day perfumes. So since we were already at the mall, I decided to pick up my freebie. I didn't think much of this at first, but when I smelt it, oh-my-gosh. It smells so fresh! I love it. It'll be something I use in the summerand keep it in my purse. :)  photo DSC01639_zpsbbc9a455.jpg 

 Anyway, I need to do some cleaning. One of my best friends is coming down this weekend for a visit and I need to clean. :)

Have a great Thursday!

Happy Thursday!!!

I also wanted to say that my first day of work went real well! I'm working tomorrow and I'll be off the weekend which will be nice. A real 8-5 job with weekends off. I have my own desk, and share an office with another girl. Which I'm excited about because it gives me the opportunity to meet new people. I love what I'm doing so far, and they may even send me to Harrisburg for a "CFO boot camp". :D I'm real excited about everything this job has to offer. Everyone is real sweet too. I'm excited and so thankful for this opportunity! :D
I do however need to pick up supplies for my desk, and possibly some cute picture frames, oh and maybe a cupcake calendar! Hmmmm! The company does plan to expand to a bigger hospital so I may get my own office so I'm kind of excited about that, but we will see!
Anyway, have a great Thursday everyone! I'm REAL excited about the post tomorrow I have for you guys. :) So make sure to come back. And I apologize if I haven't responded to everyone's comments, I've been kind of busy the last few days. :/

I Got the Job!

Yesterday afternoon as I was doing the dishes I got a phone call from the place I interviewed at. They said that they would call by Monday so I thought since it was already Tuesday they picked someone else. I know when I interviewed they say they were interviewing 4 other candidates. So needless to say, when they didn't call Monday I thought I didn't get the position. Well yesterday, they called and offered me the job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My first real job. My first career step. 2 months of looking for a job and I finally found one. I couldn't be happier with it. I start tomorrow, my first official working day. The salary is great, the hours are great, the work is exactly what I want to do! I'm so excited! :D
Today the fiance took me to dinner to celebrate, he is SO excited for me. Which makes me more excited. After we went for dinner, he said, yes he said we should go shopping for a professional outfit. I have work pants and skirts, but I wanted something more professional. I'll be working hand in hand with the CFO at the company I work for, so I should dress very professional, don't you think? :D
So we went to Kohls, again, to look for something.

I finally found the Essie nail strips that seem to be sold out everywhere. I was super excited when I found them. Aren't they adorable? I've never used any other nail strips besides Sally Hansen, so does anyone have reviews on them?

Excuse my crazy hair.

I also wanted to share a rare find on Monday when my fiance and I went to Ross..
I found Kitchen Aid mixing bowls that match my mixer perfectly..
 photo DSC01624_zpsaaa80ecc.jpg
 photo DSC01626_zpsa5a56e3c.jpg
And I got them for a steal, I just saw these at Kohls (but in black) for $32.99 and I got them for $11.99!
 photo DSC01627_zps90729d16.jpg
I was shocked, I already used them too! haha.
Anyway, I have a ton to do, so I will talk more tomorrow after work! Yes! Back to work! :D
Have a good night everyone, happy Wednesday!
