It’s been cold and wet here in the south and all I can think about is Spring!  I’ve been loving mint, yellow, and grey lately, the colors work together perfectly!  I’m ready for some warmer temps and sunny days.

I hope you’re having a great week, thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s been freezing all week!  I swear it’s not supposed to get this cold in the south although I’ve been proven wrong both winters I’ve lived here.  At least we got a little snow last year and the kids had a day off school to play, this year it’s just freezing!

I finally ventured out of my house to run some errands and stock up on food,  I can’t even count how many layers I’m wearing to try and stay warm!  I know I shouldn’t complain, if you’re up North I hope you’re better equipped and staying safe.

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend and stay warm!



It’s the most wonderful time of the year… New York Fashion Week!!!  Even though I’m not there I’ve been stalking my favorite designers on Instagram to see what they’re showing off for fall.  I’ve been so inspired by the different looks that have made it down the runway and I’m sharing my favorites today.

First off is Kate Spade, the pink and bows get me every time!

I love pink and red together and every time I wear them I can’t help but think of Marilyn Monroe in How to Mary a Millionaire, she looked stunning when she sang ‘Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend’!  My mom and I watched that scene at least half a dozen times when I was home for Christmas (my mom’s obsessed with older movies and is making sure I love them too).

Today I’m sharing what I’ll be wearing on Valentine’s Day, my favorite pink and red!  I hope you all have a fabulous Valentine’s Day with the ones you love!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Let’s talk lipstick… First of all, you can never have too much, ever!!  I’ve got a serious thing for lipstick and I don’t feel complete without a little color on my lips.  So today I’m sharing a few of my favorite pinks and reds, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

If you’ve never tried a red lipstick it can be a bit intimidating when you’re looking at all the different shades so MAC Cosmetics came out with this great palette of reds.  I just received it in the mail and I’m loving it!  It’s perfect for blending reds or trying them out individually.  With Valentine’s Day this weekend I hope you’ll all try a bright pink or a gorgeous red on your lips!

I’d love to know what your favorite lipstick colors are, I love trying new colors!  Thanks for stopping by, hope this helps you find the perfect lipstick!!

Pink Jamberry Nail Wrap Manicure on CaliCrest

Today I’m sharing my new favorite manicure!  Have you tried these Jamberry Nail Wraps?  I’ve heard a lot about them and have seen them on friends but I’m just now testing them out for myself.  I love having color on my nails and paint them multiple times a week.  I’m so hard on my hands, I think it’s obvious in these pics, my hands look like hands of a 50 year old!  My nails chip all the time and my nail polish doesn’t last more than a few days.  So when my friend Lauren told me about these nail wraps I had to give them a try.  There are so many fun designs and styles but I played it safe and went with the pink ombre, I wasn’t sure how easy it was to put on and worried I’d mess up stripes.  I’m loving the pink, isn’t it perfect for Valentine’s Day and Spring?  When is pink a bad idea, seriously?  I watched a few videos and then gave it a go and I can honestly say it was so easy!  I made sure to apply heat to each step, after you cut and peel the nail, when I put it on my nail, and after I trimmed and filed the tips.

If you’re loving these as much as I am be sure to contact Lauren (, she’s such a doll can help you with what you need.  Each sheet is $15.  When you buy 3 you get 1 free and each sheet has enough for 2-3 manicures and 2 pedicures.  I can’t wait to give myself a pedicure and Elle a manicure with what’s left of my sheet.  If you purchase through Lauren just mention my name and she’ll give you a sheet of accent nails for FREE!!  You can go directly to her site,

This was so much fun to do and I can’t wait to update you on how they’re lasting.  Hope you all have a great week, thanks for stopping by!
