Mani Monday

So, it's been awhile since I've had a professional manicure, and since I needed my eyebrows waxed badly, I stopped by a local nail salon to have get it all done.  You guys already know, I'm a fan of gel nails, so course I chose a red glittery CND Shellac gel polish for my polish.  Unfortunately, I didn't get the name of the gel polish, but I love the shade of red with the glitter in it :)

The Nail Files: Ruby Doo

For today's manicure I used my Sally Hansen Salon Pro Gel Kit again, because I know my gel polish will stay on through the rest of this week, and so far I've been pretty pleased with my nail kit.  So, for this week's manicure I decided to use the color Ruby Doo, I love the color, and look of my nails :)

What's In My Bag?

For today, I thought I'd share with you what I carrying inside my handbag.  Since I'm a huge handbag girl, and normally switch out my handbags daily, today I'm carrying my Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag ;)  So, inside my handbag I'm carrying my Kate Spade planner, a Mochi Things travel wallet with my Filofax goodies, my Michael Kors wallet, a MK make-up bag, a pair of gloves, my I Phone 5, car keys, Ray Ban sunglasses, kleenexes, and a pack of gum.  Now, that I've shown you the contents of my handbag.

What do you carry in your bag?


It's a Blazer Outside

Target Blazer (here), H&M Stripped Tee (here), Cookie Johnson Jeans (not available), Louis Vuitton Handbag, EllaandEmm Royal Ball Necklace (not available), Fossil Boyfriend Watch (here), Jewelmint Chain Bracelets (not available), and EllandEmm Hot Pink Pouf (not available).

Okay, now that Daylight Savings Time is in effect is gets dark really early here on the Eastern Shore, and as you can see in my photos the sun was beginning to set.  So, for my outfit today I decided to wear my Gazelle Brown blazer, a striped top, and dark rinse wide leg jeans.  I also, added a pair of booties, my Louis Vuitton Handbag, and gold & silver accessories :)  


My First Filofax

For those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I'm a big fan of Filofax, so much so that I now own three and a Kate Spade planner.  Why the Filofax?  Well, I just couldn't seem to stay organized, and in the past I've purchased so many planners I'm embarrassed.  After, a couple of weeks or so I just didn't want to write in them.  However, thanks to Instagram I stumbled on several photos showcasing decorated Filofax pages.

While on Instagram, I got a chance to see where they shop for stickers, journal cards, sticky notes, washi tape, and pens.  So, I started did a little research about the Filofax.  While researching, I learned people from all over the world use them, their not to pricey, you have so much fun decorating your pages, and you get a chance to meet people from all over the world:) So, I bought my first two Filofaxes, and I haven't regretted it :)

Here're photos of my Filofaxes & Planners:

The Nail Files: Wine Not

I'm still in love with my Sally Hansen's Salon Pro Gel Kit, and I'm so in love I've also gone out to buy more gel polishes too :)  Now, on my nails my gel polish last a week, however since I've been doing my own nails lately I've decided to take my gel polish off on the weekends.  So, for my manicure today, I chose to use a new gel polish I purchased recently called Wine Not.

Look What I Got: Sleeveless Peplums

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I got a chance to go into Express in our local mall to look around the store.  While there, I spotted a sleeveless peplum on the clearance rack for $14.99, of course the more I looked, the more styles I saw as well.  Also, on top of the sale price there was an additional 30% off as well.  SCORE!  So, I scooped up 6 tops, because of the great price :)  Now, I can't wait to begin styling them with my sweaters & blazers.

What are you carrying in your bag?


The Nail Files: Back to the Fuchsia

I'm still in love with my Sally Hansen Pro Gel Kit I purchased last week at Target, and for the most part my gel polish stayed on my nails throughout last week :)  So, I thought I'd go ahead and switch to another gel color for this week.  The polish I chose is called Back to the Fuchsia, and once again I love how my nails turned out :)
