Steady As She Rose

I have loved glittery  polish on other people but have been holding off because I wasn’t sure I liked it on me. I tried ‘Big Money’ by Sally Hansen & was really happy with it. But these got old really quick and they also chipped easily. So I switched to a french manicure.

The lines aren’t perfect but I’m not complaining. I applied Nail Envy as my first coat because it helps with nail strength & growth. Then I applied two coats of OPI’s “Steady As She Rose”. Be sure to wait before applying the second coat, I’ve noticed air bubbles in my base coat when I haven’t waited long enough. Then I used ‘Alpine Snow” for my tips. I used a toothpick and just put a drop of the color on a piece of paper. Less is more, if you get too much it gives the tip a weird form (my ring finger in the picture on the right did that)

Anyway, I think these are perfect for Valentines day. Simple, classy, and guaranteed to make you feel pretty.

I adore this DIY clutch from I Spy DIY 

Sometimes you don’t need a big bag when you’re at a cocktail party. A clutch is perfect for those kind of events or a day out on the town.  This is super easy to do & inexpensive. Get to it, babes!

Oh, and for the love of god, please paint your nails/fix any chips. If you don’t that will be one of the first things people see. I am guilty of this in the past until I realized how awful it looks and how fun it is to try new nail styles.

I also love both of these clutches

Confidence For The Day

I have those days where I’d really rather not do anything with myself. Where I’d rather have wild hair, a naked face, chipped nails, & socks that don’t match. Those days where your eyes look like you just woke up even hours after you did. This is usually when I am stressed or overwhelmed.

Lately I read this quote when those kind of days sneak up on me –  I instantly turn to my closet for the comfiest yet most beautiful outfit I can manage. It’s always either black or white – Because right after I’m dressed, I coat my lips with my favorite red lipstick. It works like a charm, and it gives me the confidence I need to take control of my day. Try it, I promise it will work.

All my love, B

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

Blue Life

After I realized my work phones weren’t working this morning I hopped in my car & went straight to the Apple specialists. I decided that although my blog could wait, work could not. So I took the plunge & bought a new Macbook Pro. The rest of the day at work was smooth & productive – And my stress level went from a 12 to a 1. So after a bit of a meltdown on my part, I am back! And sane. For the most part.

As many of you know I am all about comfort in everyday outfits. One of my favorite sites to shop at is called Planet Blue. They have a plethora of different styles and options, although they are a bit on the pricey side. My favorite item today is called the Chic Easy T Dress. You can literally do anything with this dress. You can rock it with some heels & accessories & be set for the evening, or you can wear it by itself & keep it casual. It is definitely going on my wishlist for this Spring.


My to do list is redonculous this evening but I am sure I’ll be back later, but until then enjoy shopping at Planet Blue. XOXO
