Mani Monday – Evil Eye Edition

I still have not broken my shopping detox,  but I have my (evil) eye on this bag for summer.  I feel like when I finally buy something it will be significant.  This bag is a contender too.  I love the denim.  I also love this limited edition year of the dog clutch.

My son had last week off school and we visited my parents in San Diego.  The week included trips to Legoland and Old Town.  It also included a quick shopping trip.  My mom was amazed that I left empty handed (a first!).  I do have a J.Crew reward card that will expire soon and I have my eye on this western chambray shirt (a lighter shade than the one I have and wear ALL the time), these flats, and this jumpsuit.  I have been holding off spending the reward card (it does have an expiration date) to keep the detox going.  I am deciding if spending the reward card counts.  It seems silly to let it go to waste.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Don”t Bossa Nova Me Around” by OPI.

Mani Monday – Coffee Edition

There are a couple of things besides my regular mediation practice that bring me instant calm and grounding.  The first is a good blow dry.  When my hair is in place everything around me can be in chaos and I definitely handle it better.  The second is an iced latte with homemade almond milk.  I was recently in San Diego for a few days of fun with a childhood friend.  While it was a great visit, I have been traveling a lot lately and I definitely needed help with grounding.  I made regular visits to my favorite Lofty Coffee for their delicious almond milk iced latte as well their perfectly cooked eggs and avocado.  You can read more about my first visit last year to Lofty Coffee here.

The manicure and nail art are by 20 Lounge.  The color is “Do you take Lei Away” by OPI.

Monday Monday – Wine and Roses Edition

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend whether it was celebrating Christmas, the first two nights of Hanukkah or just a long weekend with friends and family.  My mani this week is a wine color with a rose gold glitter.  It’s festive and ready for end of the year and New Year’s celebrations.

The color is “Malaga Wine” by OPI.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

Happy Last Monday of 2016!



Mani Friday – Wink Edition

I was surprised at how much I loved this bright pink when I went for it two weeks ago for Mani Friday – Pink Daisy Edition.  It felt surprisingly neutral, especially with all the J. Crew pink I have been wearing.  This week I decided it was the perfect end of summer color with a blue eyed wink.

The color is “Kiss me, I’m Brazilian” by OPI.  The nail art and manicure are by Olive & June.

Have a great long weekend!



Mani Friday – Pink Daisy Edition

I am loving all the pink in the new J. Crew collection and their challenge to wear pink for five days.  I decided to be bold and use a color on my hands that I would normally only wear on my toes.  I am loving this bright pink and the adorable daisy nail art.


The color is “Kiss Me, I’m Brazilian” by OPI.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

Happy Friday!
