Back Story


I picked up a vintage midi skirt when I was in San Fran at this really great vintage shop "VerUnica"  and I love it!

The shop was small and charming and the girls were very welcoming. I know I will wear this skirt a lot because it is so comfy and easy to wear with anything.

My Nails


I get asked often about my nails so here is a little Q&A of the most frequently asked questions.

Q.  Are your nails real or acrylic?
A. My nails are real

Q. Do you have them done every week or do them yourselves?
A. I do my nails myself every sunday evening.

Q. How do you paint your nails because they always look so good.
A. I paint them just like anyone else I guess except I paint every nail except the thumbs in case I need to clean as I am going. After I have finished painting them I paint my thumbs.

Q. What is your favorite nail product
A. My most favorite polish is my Seche Vite "High Gloss" Polish I swear by it and it gives my nail that high gloss shine that you get at the salon. It also dries your names so fast!!

This is magic in a bottle.

  3. Awwwww get some rest! After a break down you need to just clear your mind. I know this all to well... I'm getting married in 18 days an I'm sad because my mom, dad, and sister have all passed away within the last 5 years an I won't be able to share my joyous occasion with them. I pray an relax after my lil tearful breaks... It helps a lot :)
