Look Book: Maxi for a Mini

Maxi dresses, the struggle is real. For an average height girl, maxi dresses are the thing! They are pretty, comfy, and its super easy to throw it on and look amazing. And for tall girls, they are quite a statement maker.

For a 4 foot 11 inch tall girl, maxi dresses are a whole different story. When I go into the store and I see maxi dresses hanging on display, they are usually taller than I am! I used to openly laugh at maxi dresses, because I thought they had to be a joke, no one is really that tall (or maybe I am really just that short).

Silently, I was jealous. I loved the look of maxi dresses, but I was too short to have one. Until now! While picking through the clearance rack in Kohl's (where I find most of my clothes these days) I found it: a maxi dress that wasn't ridiculously long! I tried it on and fell in love! I still had to get it shortened, but just a little, and it fit like a glove.

The Beauty Buffs: Texture

Its a Beauty Buffs Wednesday around here! For this week we were inspired by textures. I absolutely love textured nail polish, however I don't have too many in my collection. I always try to buy more, but I end up chickening out to buy something more useful, like a nude cream.

We are supposed to get inspired by textures, and my mind went to caviar manis. I love the texture created by the caviar beads. It is such a fun and unique look! I decided to take a look back at some of my past looks, and show you my favorite textured manis!

Born Pretty Store Review: Silver Spikes

My poor little blog has been a bit neglected recently. I have been insanely busy with work, and I don't have time to work on my blog because my weekends are so busy. On top of that, my little nails just keep breaking!

But I have some exciting stuff to share, I got a promotion at my job! I have only been there about 3 months, and I already have been promoted and have an employee to manage! I am going to be supper busy during this transition, but you will still be able to find me here :)

Today I have a post that I have been wanting to do for ages! You all know how much I love my blue spiky shoes and I have wanted to do matching nails. Sadly I didn't have any spikes...until now. Born Pretty Store sent me these silver spikes to review! The official name of these spikes is 100Pcs 2.5mm*2mm Punk Simple Spike Rivet Stud UV Gel Nail Art Decoration.

Threedom: What I got in the Zoya Color Freedom promo

This post is about a month late, but better late than never...right?

Last month, Zoya celebrated the 4th of July by offering three nail polishes for free! Of course there was no way I was going to pass that up. After a long time looking through polishes and swatches, and a lot of indecisiveness, I finally chose my three. I don't normally do swatch posts, but I wanted to make sure you saw these beauties sooner rather then later. Even though its already later...

The Beauty Buffs: Black and White

Now that I work an office job, I can actually choose the clothes I wear to work! That might not seem like much to you, but I worked for 3 years at jobs in which I had to wear uniforms. I had a very small work appropriate wardrobe when I got my new job, since it was never something I had to think about. I love bright colors and fun patterns, which isn't always the best to wear in an office.

The weekend before I started my job, I went on a MASSIVE shopping spree, trying to build my work wardrobe. I bought sweaters, button down tops, and a dress from Macy's that I just loved! When I showed up on my first day wearing black dress pants and a blazer, one of my new coworkers told me that I was way too dressed up for the office. I like to dress up so I didn't turn down my wardrobe too much, but the one dress I bought just seemed way too professional for my mew casual office. There was no way it was not going to make an appearance out into the world, and my black and white dress is just perfect for this week's Beauty Buffs theme!

My Nailmergency Kit

Weekends in my life have been crazy lately, and they are only going to get crazier! Summer into fall seems to be my busiest time. To me, that means traveling. And I don't mean fancy week-long vacations. I mean weekend trips to New York to see my family, Pennsylvania to see Ben's, Florida for grandpa time, Texas brother weekends and much more.

As a nail blogger, my ten digits are my money makers, and that means I need to care for them 24/7. A while back, I took a bunch of nail essentials, threw them in a bag, and took that with me anywhere I traveled. This has now evolved into my nailmercency kit.

#MyCosmoStyle for Vegas.com



I was recently contacted by Vegas.com to participate in their #MyCosmoStyle blog challenge. My challenge you ask? Put together outfits to wear if I were staying at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

I have been to Las Vegas as a kid with my dad, but I have never actually gone as an adult.  I am an old lady at heart, so staying up 'til the wee hours partying isn't my thing. However, there are plenty of fun things to do in Vegas at anytime of the day, even going to bed before midnight!
