Black Cherry Sparkle

I've been battling a yucky cold since Friday. Today is the first day I am feeling somewhat better. I thought I would try to make some part of myself presentable and decided to do some plum colored nails. With a splash of sparkles!

I did a base coat, then two coats of Black Cherry, then with a cosmetic sponge I dabbed on Night Prowl (sparkleness), and finished with a Super Shiney topcoat. Lastly, I put some Solar Oil on my cuticles.

I may have a stuffy nose and sore throat but my nails look cute!

I was curious as to what I was wearing last year about this time....and I found these. Definitely some of my faves

Tis the Season

Tis the Season
I have been dreaming about a little moto jacket in a soft brown color. I think #1 is the one I can actually have while I can only dream about #4.

Braided Girl

Sweater & Pants: Thrifted, Blouse: Target, Mocs: Minnetonka

Partially successful at a side braid today. Some of the elements that makes it successful are bangs and beach waves. That way it looks purposefully messy.

Life Lately

 I don't really like this manicure. Toothpicks are not working for me to make straight lines. I need a fine brush. This ended up looking like Team USA gymnastics uniform. FAIL.

On a woolier note,

Fall is here!

And my 5 year old brought this home

If you have on your deciphering glasses you can tell that says I go to the school. Or I pity the po fool. Or I pot to the stool.

I'm just so dang proud of him whatever he wrote.

Cleopatra Girl

Jumpsuit: Thrifted, Bag: Avon, Sandals: Chadwicks

The hubs told me I looked Egyptian on our date night. If Cleopatra ever went to a disco, I think she would've worn this jumpsuit.

Most Interesting Girl

Top: Bitten, Dress (worn as a skirt): some forgotten head shop, Sandals: Aldo, Belt: forgotten as well

This is the most interesting outfit I have worn in the past two weeks. It felt pretty monumental. I had pink eye for about a week and a half and felt relief finally this past weekend. So I have not been much on the picture taking aspect of life. I'm still not wearing any eye makeup because I refuse to buy any new stuff until I finish my prescription eye drops. If there is one thing I know, it's that pink eye sucks. This is the first round of many more icky things to come from a kindergartners first year in the big house.

On a second note - this top is one of the ones from Sarah Jessica Parker's Bitten line that I wish still existed. At least in my town. I'm not sure if Bitten as whole tanked or just Steve & Barry's that carried the line. I'm to lazy to research it right now. But I sure do love this top. It was inexpensive but has really kept it's shape and color for years.

Fashion Ramblings

So when I saw Gunnar on Project Runway with his flannel scarf I decided I needed one too. I haven't done too much digging around the old internets but I think this could be one of those things you could easily do a DIY on. But - with my mood of "easy is better" - I will probably succumb to an ebay purchase. Plus I don't want it to look homemade. I want it to be a lighter flannel fabric. RAMBLING. Anyway, here's Gunnar in all his glory:

Isn't that scarf awesome? Answer: yes, it is One Girl.

To soothe the savage beast, I created a little wish list. I got distracted by fringe boots so I threw those in there too.

Casual Girl

Outfit: Thrifted

Like I said before, I have been leaning towards more comfortable, no fuss outfits that are easy to put together. It is a nice break!
