Happy Friday Friends!!

Woohoo for February! I think it’s going to be a great month.

I’m excited to get this Super Bowl weekend started! I’m headed to Minneapolis later today to take in all the Super Bowl festivities and I cannot be more excited. As a football fan I’ve always wanted to experience a Super Bowl so I’m taking a chance now, especially since the Patriots are part of this one!! Check out my instastories for more!  It’s been a crazy week so here are some lovely things that caught my attention:

Essie Gelcouture

I finally got around to buying Essie’s Gelcouture nail polish. I usually paint my own nails and have tried ANC gel and gel polish at the salon. Those both seem to ruin my nails when I take them off so I thought like the Essie line seemed like a good option to try. I liked the neutral color of fairy tailor and felt the color stayed a bit longer than regular polish. What are your thoughts on the gel couture?

What’s Up Wednesday

Wednesday was the first What’s Up Wednesday of the year and it was so interesting to see what everyone has been reading, watching, wearing and doing for the month of January. You can see what I’ve been up to here.

Cozy Tunic

Now this is the type of tunic I’ve been looking for. I can wear it during the day for work, errands on the weekend or just a cozy dinner date! I’m partial to the navy, but it comes in 5 different colors too!

English Garden Parties on Pinterest

I don’t know if I’ve searched London too many times in Pinterest or that spring is around the corner but English garden parties have popped up all over my Pinterest feed. All the greenery and floral arrangements and delicate china makes me so happy. I wish I could throw a garden party baby shower or bridal shower this spring. Unfortunately, themes have already been picked for those lol.

Kesha’s Performance!

I didn’t watch the Grammy’s, but I did catch Kesha’s performance of “Praying”. Boy did she sing her heart out. It gave me all the feels, especially with the women she had performing with her. If you didn’t catch it I highly suggest checking out the clip!


I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and I’ve only got one thing left to say…GO PATS!!! 😆

    I’ve not tried the Essie either; but I’ve heard good things! And that sweater is so pretty; I’ll have to check it out. The navy looks great.
