Mani Monday – Navy Sparkle Edition

“What is he doing?” I think to my sleepy self.  “Is he putting away Christmas?” I consider with both delight and frustration.  I want to put it away myself, my way, but how nice would it be to wake up and have it done.  I need more sleep.  I try to rest and finally get up.  I descend the stairs and I am awash with memories.  The dining room table is set with our wedding china and place mats I was not even sure would work with our new table (they do).  “I just thought we should head into 2018 and our tenth anniversary by going back to our foundation.”  We have not used our china much since having our son, (who is quite careful with things).  I head into the kitchen and put my coffee into a breakfast cup and saucer just like when we were newlyweds, and everything just feels a little more civilized.

My pre-detox is going well, more on that this week.  My New Year’s Mani is full of sparkle and I am ready to close out 2017 and welcome 2018.

The mani is by Olive & June.  The colors are “Surrounded by Studs” by Essie Gel Couture and Essie Luxeffects top coat in “Summit of Style”.

Mani Monday – Ninth Anniversary Edition

J  & J forever!  Our wedding invitation monogram lives on.  It’s no secret that I love a good monogram.  We created this one for our wedding invitations and stationery nine years ago.  My mom surprised us on our wedding day with monogrammed champagne glasses. We added a little color (our favorite blues) and personalized our bedding and towels a few years ago.  I thought it was a tall order to turn it into nail art, but the nail artists at Olive & June are nothing short of amazing.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Ballerina” by Chanel.

Items featured in the photos include:

J. Crew Shirting Striped Top

J. Crew Gingham Blazer (on sale!)

J. Crew for New Balance Striped Pullover (on sale!)

Happy Monday!
