Happy Sunday!!

22 February 2015

Happy Sunday everyone!  I think at this point, we all have cabin fever.  Not even a snow storm could keep us inside.  Last night we ventured out and had a lovely dinner and margaritas.  There was a lot of people out in the streets just walking around.  And today the sun's out.  How many more days until Spring?

Winter Lacquer

16 February 2015

With another snowy weekend passing, I thought it would be a great time to share both mine and Stephanie's winter nail polish favorites.  

For myself, the elements outside have really been influencing the polishes I've been reaching for out of my collection.  I've been attracted to colors in a very monochrome palette of grays and silvers.  Some of the polishes, I've been using are below and include My Silk Tie by OPI and Muggins by Butter London, which is an awesome purplish-gray color. 



Stephanie's Winter Polish Favorites

For Stephanie, she has been Essie obsessed this winter.  She finally got her hands on some of the polishes from Essie's new Cashmere line (thanks to my help and dragging my husband into Ulta!) Along with those two colors, Spun in Luxe and Comfy in Cashmere, Steph has been loving older Essie favorites like Muchi, Muchi. This is a great blush pink color, which makes me think Stephanie is ready for some spring weather!

What have been some of your winter favorites?

Happy Sunday!!

08 February 2015

Happy Sunday!!  I've been hunkered down inside with all this snow, I haven't even gone outside to take any photos of it, until today.  There are animal tracks everywhere.  Probably from neighborhoods cats stalking some squirrels and birds. 
Well I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoying the snow!

My Project Life

07 February 2015



Scrapbooking has been a hobby of mine for a while but I took a little break from it after I finished my wedding album.  I've done an entire scrapbook of my trip to Spain, my honeymoon, and even one I add to each time I go to a concert.  For 2015 I'm getting back into it and doing a Project Life scrapbook.

Project Life by Becky Higgins is meant to simplify scrapbooking.  You get photo pocket pages and you fill those pockets with photos, cards, and keepsakes.  This makes it easier to scrapbook everyday life, which I think is wonderful.  Some people do everyday, or every week, some do monthly.  I'm going to try monthly.  I think this will be a challenge, because there isn't always something exciting going on, but it will get me to take more photos of everyday life. 


I've started by purchasing some supplies: an album, the photo pocket pages, separators, and a pack of cards.  I also bought some things to embellish like paper clips and washi tape.  Since I'll be using my iphone for a lot of the pictures I also will be using two apps to help print photos.  For my instagram photos I'm using the Postal Pix app.  You can order 4x4 photos from your instagram feed and they come in the mail to you in a few days.  These fit perfectly in the I size Project Life photo pages.  I also downloaded the Kodak KioskConnect app so I can print my photos at CVS through bluetooth, without any cables.

So, I'm all ready to get started.  I just have to start taking and printing photos.  As I fill in my scrapbook I'll share some pages with you.

Happy Sunday!! Tonight we're watching football and snackin'.  We've got meatballs, veggies, drunken gummi bears, Mexican brownies, and an unripe avocado.  The buffalo chicken nachos are in the oven!
