Here's to the short work week! Although getting back into the swing of things is rough, I now will have the whole weekend to recoup.
This week, I had two different manis. One for News Years:
And after the New Year I was looking to find a pretty, wintery color, and this is what I came up with:
In case you can’t tell, it is a rich, green color with some shimmery sparkle. I love it! My nails are in really bad shape, but I think a darker color is actually complimentary. I’m really looking to find a good nail hardener. My nails are trashed right now. All suggestions are appreciated!!
Now on to some Friday randomness:
- For NYE I bought a few different items and in the end with some varied patterns/prints. What do you think?
- Staying on fashion, since we all know how “un-fashionable” I tend to be, while out shopping for a NYE outfit, I was DRAWN to these pair of jeggings. It dawned on me today (while wearing them), why I love them so much. Back in the 80’s I went through a phase where I loved plaid – in particular a print my mom used to call Scotty Dog Plaid. These pants totally take me back!
- Speaking of my mom..On Christmas she came over wearing a new, pretty pendant, which I immediately noticed. It was a four-sided rectangle, and hers was gold. I commented how much I like it, and wouldn’t you know, yesterday she came over and gave me my very own, in white gold of course! She also brought me two new RED lipsticks to try out. She really is the best.
- A lastly, and most important, while I was volunteering at Cole’s holiday party, his class was making cut-out snowflakes as the craft of the day. They were instructed to make two. One snowflake would be used to decorate the hallways at his school, the second would be mailed to create a “winter wonderland” at the new school for the Sandy Hook students. Schools (as well as individuals) from all across the nation participated, and as of today, they are no longer taking donations. The kids were so excited to be sending something so simple that will surely mean so much to the kids and community.
With that little bit of love, I hope you all have a wonderful, safe weekend!
