Purple Pond Gradient

One thing that I have wanted to try more of was jelly polish nail art. I have been blogging for three and a half years and I still only have about three jelly nail polishes. I love how glossy and squishy they are, and I love all of the unique nail art you can do with them, but for some reason I don't have many in my collection.

Two of my favorite jelly looks are pond manis, and jelly gradients. Why not make up for all the lost jelly time and combine them into one look!

Swatch Saturday: butter LONDON British Racing Green

Have you ever thought to yourself "oh what a gorgeous nail polish I own, I should swatch it on my blog"...and then completely forget?

Well that happened to me when I did these matte foil nails. Butter LONDON's British Racing Green was such a gorgeous green that I wanted to show it to you guys on its own and I am finally getting around to it. Better late than never!

Look Book: Engagement Party #1

As I mentioned in my last post, a couple weeks ago Ben and I had our first engagement party back home in New York. Yes you read that right, first engagement party. Since my family lives in New York, and his lives in Pennsylvania, we decided to have two parties so that everyone could attend at least one of them.

I chose a mint dress that I am obsessed with to wear, but when I got to my house, my mom surprised me with a new dress. It was too pretty and perfect not to wear!

Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

Remember to enter my Jamberry giveaway and join the Facebook party!

Recently, Ben and I traveled back to New York to visit my family. My brother and sister-in-law came up from Texas to celebrate my brother's birthday, and the next day my mom threw Ben and I an engagement party.

I decided that my engagement party would be the perfect time to ask my best friend, Sara, and Ben's sister, Kayla, if they would be a part of my wedding party. I have seen lots of cute ideas on how to make "popping the question" a special occasion. Even though I saw a lot of fun ideas, I wanted to do something that was more my style.

I picked up initial necklaces in the letters S for Sara, K for Kayla, and of course J for Jacquie so I could match them! I filled out a card for each of them, and in the card I asked if they would be my maid of honor/bridesmaid. I wrapped everything up in red and turquoise, my wedding colors.

Will you be my bridesmaid?

Muffin's Sweet 16 for #Caturday

Remember to enter my Jamberry giveaway and join the Facebook party!

March 31st was my cat's birthday, but this past birthday was a special one, her sweet 16! Yes, I am fully aware that I am a crazy cat lady and I am proud of it.

Every year I celebrate her birthday because she is so special to me. When she was only three weeks old she was abandoned with a broken leg on the doorstep of my vet. The vet let me keep her once she was old enough and her leg was healed. I got her when I was 9 years old, so we have literally grown up together. I always say that I didn't rescue her, she rescued me.

Since this was her sweet 16 I new I had to make it special! I got her some cat nip toys and a scratching board, plus a cupcake and Fancy Feast for dinner. My mom even sent her a fun string toy!

April Julep Box

My mom signed up for the Julep Maven monthly subscription boxes a few years ago, back when you could opt-out of any month. That means I only get a box sent to me when I really want it, and I was really excited about April's box.

This month Julep released the Paradise collection and I opted for the Classic with a Twist box. Let's open it together!

Swatch Saturday: China Glaze Glitter all the Way

Welcome back to another swatch Saturday! Last Saturday I was actually in New York having my engagement lunch party, but I will talk more about that later. Today I wanted to share a gorgeous glitter bomb: China Glaze Glitter all the Way.

This polish came out as part of the 2012 Holiday collection, so I am sure that you have seen it already. I received this polish in some nail mail from Dulcie a while ago, and this is the first time I have gotten around to wearing it.

Mix and Match Makeup Looks: Aladdin

Don't forget to enter my Jamberry giveaway and join the Party!

I showed you my Princess Jasmine nail art, so of course it's time for my matching makeup look. Normally, when I love one mix and match look, I end up hating the other. This time...I loved both looks! This is actually not my first time creating a Jasmine makeup look. Last time I was inspired by her red outfit, so of course this time I needed to do her traditional look.
