January 2017 Roundup

Welcome to the first roundup of the new year! Thankfully my January wasn't too crazy, after a super crazy October, November, and December. That not to say I wasn't busy. I spent it doing a lot of wedding planning from crafting decorations to buying Ben's wedding band. I also fulfilled one of my life's dreams and was in a protest! I went to the Women's March on Washington to fight for human rights. It was such an incredible experience to be a part of history.

Dorothy in the Streets, Blanche in the Sheets

A few years ago, I watched The Golden Girls for the first time. I love older TV (I Love Lucy is my favorite show of all time), but for some reason it took me a long time to watch The Golden Girls. After one episode I was an instant fan. I even listen to a Golden Girls podcast every weekend while I work on my nail art for the blog!

Makeup Looks: Frozen

Last week when that cold front came through, it meant that winter was officially here. I have broken out my warmest clothes, my snow boots, and my hot chocolate. This cold weather inspired me to create a winter makeup look.

Grape Galaxies

My first ever nail art post on this blog was my first attempt at galaxy nail art. To be real with you, one of my first times doing nail art period, and it was pretty awful. One year later on my blogaversary I decided to attempt galaxy nail art again. While better, was still a fail.

A month ago I went to Texas to visit family for the holidays (but really to see Rogue One). I wanted to do nail art my brother would think was cool; I wanted to do galaxy nail art. I had to talk myself up to it.

You can do it.

Your're actually sorta not bad at nail art now.

It's easy, I swear!

Look Book: Cozy Chevron

There is no more denying it, winter is here! The temperature is dropping, snow is falling, and I am bringing out all my warmest clothes. I love fall and winter for a lot of reasons, and one of them is that I get to wear my favorite clothes. Give me a sweater, a scarf, and boots, and I am a happy camper.

I got a lot of clothes from my mom for my birthday and Chanukkah, and one thing that I got that I was extra excited about was this sweater dress and scarf combo. The sweater was long and warm, and I loved the chevron scarf it came with. I thew in some leggings and boots, and instantly found my favorite winter outfit!

Makeup Looks: Greenery

Welcome to 2017! With a new year comes many other new things. #NewYearNewMe and all. In case you haven't heard, Pantone has chosen the new Color of the Year, and its Greenery. I am having sort of a love-hate relationship with Greenery. I love green, and it is a pretty and fresh shade of green. However, this color screams Spring to me, and I really really hate the spring.

No matter if I love it or if I hate it, since it's the 2017 color of the year, I wanted to wear it. Here is my Greenery makeup look:

Rose and Gold

Are you guys also super obsessed with rose gold right now too? I just can't get enough of it! I am not a fan of gold, but I am a huge fan of pink, and something about that combination is just so gorgeous. Surprisingly, I don't own a rose gold nail polish! So instead of rose gold nail art, I have rose and gold nail art.

December 2016 Roundup

December was a crazy month for me, but I'm sure it was for everyone else too. From lots of traveling, to the holidays, December had no chill (no pun intended). The month started off with going to lots of different holiday parties. Then we visitied family in Texas and saw Star Wars. Finally we closed out December with celebrating the holidays and New Year's.

I am not one for New Year's resolutions, instead I try to pick a goal I want to complete within the year. Past ones have been to get my driver's licence, get a big girl job, and get engaged. I have thought a while and there is really nothing big that I want to get done this year. Of course I want to get married, keep thriving at my job, and be the best me, but those don't really count as New Year's goals. I have lots of things I want to do in my live, and I guess I'll see which ones are right for me in 2017.
