Manicure Monday - Perfect Combination

How about I almost went to bed completely oblivious to the fact that it's Monday and I promised a new manicure. Where are they doing that?? Anyway, I've been kind of bored with my polish collection lately. It's to the point where I want to throw it all away and start over. In an attempt not to do that, I tried to find ways to make my collection seem new and ended up with this great color for my No-Chip Manicure!

Circus Tightrope & Sally Hansen Dahlia

Although this was a total accident, I'm really glad it happened. I've used both polishes before separately and loved them but they're even better together. If you're interested in seeing them alone, look here [Tightrope] and here [Dahlia].

Have you ever combined a couple polishes to get a new fresh color? How did it turn out?

Later Gators,

Leopard & Lace ~ Vegas Look #4

Happy Friday!! The weekend is here & I'm finally posting my last look from Vegas, woo-hoo ;-) I wore this the night of my birthday for dinner and drinks. BTW, let me apologize for the crap quality of these pics. We couldn't find a well lit area inside the hotel, hence the changing backgrounds.

Dress: Forever 21 ~ Shoes : Just Fab ~ Clutch : Target

If you haven't already noticed, I'm a huge fan of wearing belts around my waist and anything leopard print so this was right up my alley. I thought the prints were a nice way to edge up the lace as well!  If you've enjoyed my vacation looks, please take the time to subscribe to my new YouTube channel [here] where I'll be uploading a lookbook video to showcase the outfits! 

Have a fantastic weekend and I'll see you Monday with a new manicure ;-)

Aztec Print & Purple Lipstick ~ Vegas Look #3

*peeks head in* Hello...anybody out there?? I already know what you're going to say. "What happened to you posting for a full week?!" Basically I went out of town at the end of last week and wasn't smart enough to schedule my posts ahead of time, please forgive me ;-) Let's just pick up where I left off with my daytime birthday look from Vegas. 

 Sandals : Target ~ Romper : Forever 21 ~ Bag : Target

I love this romper!! My favorite part is the peek-a-boo detailing in the back, which was perfect for the ridiculously hot weather. I have to admit that it was a little shorter than normal for me but I was feeling pretty confident that day. I think 31 looks good on me!! I also decided to try a new lip color; a mixture of MAC's Heroine & Violetta. For whatever reason, I caught lots of flack in our vlog about this lipstick choice but I absolutely loved it!! It doesn't hurt to step outside the box and try something different.  

What do you think? Is purple lipstick something you would give a chance or too bold for your taste?

Concert Attire ~ Vegas Look #2

Happy Wednesday!! I'm back with my second look from the day of the Beyonce concert!! That was basically the whole purpose of our trip, my birthday gift from the hubby...he knows how much I love me some Bey ;-)

Jumper : Forever 21 ~ Belt & Shoes : Rue 21 
Hair : Indy Remi Hair Boutique ~ Earrings : ToniDaley

It took me forever to figure out what I wanted to wear but I decided to go cute & casual since I knew I would be on my feet the entire time! What I didn't know was how crappy my shoes were. When I tell you that my feet were SCREAMING after the concert, it's not even an exaggeration. Those wedges had to be the worst. I've worn 6 inch stilettos that didn't hurt my feet as bad as they did; which is exactly why they ended up in the trash on my way back to our hotel (thank God for Ross)!! 

I really thought I was getting a deal with some $20 shoes but I surely learned my lesson. Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that turned out to be a nightmare?? Tell me about it ;-)

See you tomorrow!

Orange Shorts ~ Vegas Look #1

Happy Tuesday!! I bet you're surprised to see a post from me today huh?? Yeah me too, lol. Seems like I've been so uninspired to blog lately and this is my attempt to get my life together! Plus I have 4 looks from Vegas that for whatever reason, I still haven't posted. The plan is to share one each day for the rest of the week...think I can do it?! Guess you'll have to wait and see. 

Top : Target ~ Shorts : Target 

 Bag : Target ~ Sandals : Chinese Laundry 

Bracelet : Books-A-Million ~ Necklace : H&M

It was sooo hot while we were there, I'm talking 100 + degree weather. If I could have walked around in a bikini all day, I would have...well I actually did see that a couple times but that's another story! I just tried to go with a less as possible to keep cool and I think I did a pretty good job.  

See you tomorrow!

Have a productive Monday ;-)

Luau Style

Happy Monday Peeps!! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Yesterday was my birthday and I'm currently 31,000 ft up in the air returning home from my mini vacation. The hubby took me to Vegas for the Beyonce concert and it was amazing!! I'll have more from the trip later but today I wanted to share a look I wore a couple weeks ago to a company luau.

Dress : Target ~ Sandals : Chinese Laundry

Bracelet : Forever 21 ~ Hair : RPG Show

I loved this dress as soon as I seen it on the rack but I loved it even more after I tried it on. The fit was nice and airy, perfect for me. I don't normally wear a ton of bright colors but I'm glad I bypassed the black and grey version for this one instead! It's definitely a great addition to my maxi dress collection.

Can you believe this came from Target? I'm convinced they have the cutest clothes for such affordable prices. How many items do you have in your closet from there?

Enjoy the rest of your day!
