Ciate Mini Mani Month Preview

Happy Wednesday!

Currently blogging from my phone because I haven't had a chance to go on my laptop...

Anyway, I finally got the Ciate Mini Mani Month and wanted to share a few photos. I will do a more in depth review later this week. 

Sneak preview of day 1. 

Have a great night!

Essie: Toggle to the Top NOTD & Review

Happy Tuesday!

I'm doing something a little different today because I just feel the need to. 

I picked up Essie's new 2013 Winter Collection nail polish in Toggle to the Top. In the bottle it looks like this gorgeous red color with glitter top. And originally I thought it was a top coat but when I applied it, it's color and glitter in one! Which is amazing because, well, less steps and less drying time. 

Anyway, here's a picture of it I found online because I didn't take a picture of it. 


  Here's what it looks like on, day 1. It's more of a black/reddish color with red glitter.
I was seriously contemplating all day if I liked it, actually I still am. I don't feel like this is a Christmas color, I feel like it's more of a Halloween color. I don't know what do you think?

Anyway, and here's day two. I am so angry. I did the dishes the day before I painted my nails, I work in an office, I feel like there's no reason for it to chip so quickly. And I did use a top coat! I'm highly disappointed in this nail polish, and usually I love Essie nail polish. I'm thinking because the glitter mixed in with the color made it easier for it to peel.

What do you guys think? Has this happened to you and any of your Essie nail polishes? This is the only one it's happened to me on.

Anyway, it's petty and stupid and not a big deal, but thought I'd rant a little. Haha.

Have a great night!

Happy Sunday Funday! :)

I'm following Danielle's lead on this one, over at Schnelle.
I saw her do a post on it, so I'm copying. :)

 1. Would you consider yourself a shopaholic?  Yes! I find reasons to shop! I would have to say it definitely calmed down when I went away to college and didn't have a job, but now that I make more money than I ever have before (so thankful!) I find myself shopping more, but have the same thought process as when I was in college. "Do I really need this? Do I have something similiar? It definitely stops me from buying things I might impulse buy on.

2. How would you classify your style? I'm not entirely sure! I guess I would say girly, a little trendy, but also classic. I like to buy key pieces that I could keep for a long time, with some trendy pieces within, like statement necklaces. I don't really like to buy too many trendy pieces because I find myself getting rid of it within a year. Some clothing should be an investment like dress pants, dress shirts (something you find yourself wearing all the time), while other things (crop tops) you should buy to a minimum. It's a waste of money!

3. What store can you not leave without buying at least one thing? Forever 21, Ulta, Bath & Body Works or Sephora. I'll be in my 30's and shopping at Forever 21. It's one of those stores you don't feel like you're wasting your money. It's a place you can buy trendy and classic pieces for super affordable prices. Although, as I'm getting older (27! Ek!) I'm finding that I don't like much in there. But when I do, I do buy quite a bit! :)

4. Where do you find the best deals?! This is somewhere I'll look for trendy necklaces (my 3 bubble necklaces only cost me $15 TOTAL). I also look on their for scarves, I find that stores really mark them up. I will only buy a scarf if it's under $10, considering I get  alot of my scarves on for $5.00! As for clothes JCPenney use to be my go-too. They mark their clothes down SO cheap!

5. What designer are you willing to splurge for?
Michael Kors and Juicy Couture.

6. Do you have a "go to" shopping outfit?
Something comfortable! Leggings and a hoodie with flats or jeans with a cute sweater, in the summer it was just shorts and a t-shirt. If you're trying things on, it's a pain to have to unbutton a blouse, keep it simple to where you can pull it off!

7. What is your guilty pleasure? (Aside from make up)
Ahhhh I was totally going to say make up! Can I say nail polish??? The fiance just ordered the Ciate Mini Mani Month for me, and I can not wait to get it. Sometime this week!

8. What is one staple clothing piece you cannot live without?
Yoga pants. SO stinking comfortable!

9. What is a trend you hope never goes out of style?
Leggings and big shirts/hoodies! Oh! Polka dots, I love them. Oh! Printed sweat shirts. I can't get enough.

10. What trend did you love that passed way to quickly?
Baby doll tops. Does anyone remember them? I had SO many, they were great with skinny jeans. :(

11. Who is your fashion icon?
I don't really have any, I love reading other blogs for outfit inspiration, along with Pinterest.

Have a great Sunday!

New Scarves & Stationary

Happy Thursday! 

It's almost the weekend, what is everyone's plans?
Mine is to do some shopping. Shopping for myself and shopping for Christmas! 
I started making a Christmas list for people I buy for. :)
I was even listening to Christmas music on my way to work. 
I'm super excited because I'm going to be off of work from Christmas Eve until Sunday! Almost a full week off from work. I'm so excited to go home and spend time with friends and family. :)

Anyway, I have a bunch of scarves that I purchased at a local farmers market and some fun stationary. 

Most of the scarves were $5 or less. Scarves are perfect for fall. And don't you just love the little owls on the one scarf?!?! SO cute. :)

And just some post it's and little notebooks for myself to write down ideas and To-Do Lists. 

Have a great night.

Fall Bath & Body Works Haul

Happy Tuesday!

I have SO many things to blog about and I'm having a hard time finding the time to take pictures and come up with the posts. Work is taking over my life, seriously. 
Anyway, today I have a fall Bath & Body Works Haul to share. 
I love going to Bath & Body Works around the holidays, they seriously have the best things. I believe they just got their Christmas collection in. Which I need to go check out! I'm running out of Winter Candy Apple!

Let's just say I have a slight obsession with the scent Pumpkin Cupcake. I'm so truly happy that they came back with the scent!

Both of the wallflowers are already gone, one of the antibacterials are gone, and the candle is currently burning. Everything in our apartment smells like Pumpkin Cupcake, and I'm ok with that! :)

Have a great night!
