Peachy Keen, Summer Queen

Like most women, getting my nails done makes me feel cute and confident! Its a great way to relax, and treat myself every two weeks. Self care is key to confidence! Looking down and seeing my nails sparkle, instantly puts a smile on my face. Life is more fun with a little color!

During the summer, I like to get a bright pop of color on my nails! This time I went straight for a bright, peachy coral color, and y’all… I’m OBSESSED!!

I usually get my toes a color that matches my nails, but this time I decided to do a hot pink color to compliment them instead!

I got Nexgen nails color “Florida” or “S1” from the dip color brand Nexgen. This time I got them pretty long but I love the way they look “coffin” shaped!

I have gotten tons of compliments on them because this is the most perfect color to rock this summer! I love a good summer peach, and I love looking down and seeing this color on my nails all the time!

Wine and Waterford

Hey guys!

As I write more and more blog posts, I feel like I should share some personal info about myself. So here it is…

I LOVE Wine!

White and Rose wines are my drink of choice. I drink a glass (or three) of wine every time I write a blog post! Yes, I might be a little tipsy while writing this… but hey, its research!

There is so much to know and learn about wine, that I just don’t have time for, so I’m gonna break it down simple for yah (or for myself, not really sure).

I have always had a sweet tooth, so naturally I’m more drawn to sweeter, less bitter wines. I became a wine drinker when I turned 21, and I figured sweet wine was a good, safe place for me to to start.

Here’s some pretty pictures of the gorgeous rose I’m Drinking!

Rose All Day

I tend to be drawn towards Rose because it’s just so pink and pretty. Don’t make fun of me, I can’t help that I love pink, ok. The only problem is, they aren’t always as sweet as I like.

This JNSQ rose wine was just as amazing as it’s bottle (and marketing team). It is a more dry rose than I normally like, but I was honestly surprised at how much I liked it.

I would tell you more about what I thought, but at then end of the day, I would 100% pay $25 to drink it again.

It took me longer to drink since I wasn’t used to more dry wine, but if I’m going to drink this whole thing, I should at least try to pace myself.

They sell JNSQ Rose everywhere!

Look, I am all about convenience. They sell this wine at TONS of stores; Target, Market Street, Total Wine, and that’s just in a 5 min drive from my house!

This Wine Glass is just at gorgeous!!

Ok ok, I might be a little boujee. Waterford Crystal has the MOST wonderful hand cut crystal in tons of cut patterns! I love it. It is pricey, I am well aware… but it is also a timeless classic that will last forever!

I may just be 21, but I swear… one of these days, all the housewives will be jealous of the Waterford collection that I started when I was young.

It’s not my fault I swear! This crazy love for some nice wine glasses (and such) that are super expensive, is all because of my boyfriend.

When we first started dating, I though he was CRAZY for spending that kind of money on some glasses. Now, I still know, and realize, that it’s COMPLETELY crazy; The only difference in the now, is that I feel like a boss bitch when I drink out of these things!

Judge all you want, but Waterford Crystal is the shit.

In case you were wondering, this glass pattern is Eastbridge (Yeah you know you’re going to click on it, just to see how much I pay for these dumb things).

My top 10 favorite friends episodes of all time

Friends is the show that I can watch over and over again

Friends is one of the best sitcoms of all time. I started watching this show when I was way to young; Before Netflix days, I watched Friends on my parents DVD box sets. (90’s baby things)

Other than this horrible spray tan, things with Rachel and Joey are getting complicated. This is definitely the weirdest combo of relationships on the show, and honestly its just wrong. Oh well, its hilarious that as hard as they try, things are just off with them.

Ross admits to a certain Princess Leia Fantasy and everyone finds out. While on the topic, Chandler admits an embarrassing secret, that he sometimes pictures his mom during sex. After they both get made fun of, Rachel decides to play out Ross’ fantasy.

Then we get to see Jennifer Aniston in THE gold bikini, so enough said.

Ross ruins the fun by only being able to picture his mother in that tiny gold bikini and its safe to say, his fantasy is ruined.

Periwinkle Purple Summer Nails… Plus A Nail Salon Secret Discount!

Like most women, getting my nails done makes me feel cute and confident! Its a great way to relax, and treat myself every two weeks. Self care is key to confidence! Looking down and seeing my nails sparkle, instantly puts a smile on my face. Life is more fun with a little color!

I can be kind of picky about my nails. By a little, I mean super super picky. If I’m going to spend $100 a month on my nails, they have to be gorgeous damn it! I’m not prissy, I’m piratical.

Color choices are key

I pick my nail salons based on the amount of color choices they have. Nicer salons typically have more variety of colors to choose from, and get new ones for each season! I found my nail salon on yelp. After much digging, I picked this one because of their customer reviews (and photos) are AMAZING! Every design and example looked like all the nails I see, and pin on Pinterest!

I meant to take a picture of all the color choices, and I forgot. Oops. Don’t worry, I will be back in two weeks to get my nails done and I’ll add one here(:

I have never seen this at a nail salon… matching nexgen and nail polish colors!!

There is an overwhelming amount of colors of Nexgen (dip nails) to choose from, and its the hardest choice to make; This helped me narrow down my choices in no time. They had a whole wall of nail polish colors to choose from, for my pedicure, and lots of them had numbers for a matching Nexgen color! I have never seen a nail salon that does this! I am mind blown at how awesome it was! Obviously, I had to get them matching, so I got a periwinkle purple blue color that I’m OBSESSED with!

shh… nail salon secret discounts coming up

Click below to see my favorite nail salon on Yelp!

Venice Nails has recently become my favorite spot to get my nails done. Like I said, I’m picky. This place is the best, no lie.

Venice Nails | Nail Salon

Kimi did my gorgeous coffin shaped nails! She was so sweet and GREAT at Nexgen nails, she even suggested the coffin shape because it would look amazing with this color… she was right! Hannah did my pedicure and my toes turned out perfect! The colors matched flawlessly, and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out!

Check in on Yelp when you go… here’s why!

It’s my favorite secret discount for nail salons.

If you check in on Yelp, they give you 20% off your entire bill! In nail salon terms, that’s a lot (splurge for the cute designs, it’s worth it)!

I got all my services for 20% off, just by checking in. It only took me a few seconds to get a great deal.

I have been browsing, and buying, lots of dresses to wear this summer, and I thought I could share a few of my top picks! I’m all about being comfy while dressing cute, and sundresses are the BEST solution (Not wearing pants is the shit, come on)!

All of these dresses have great reviews on Amazon Prime Fashion! I’m all about reading other peoples reviews. People who take the time to review products on amazon (or anywhere) are the opinions I want to read! Part of the reason I find great clothes on Amazon, is because I read the reviews, and these dresses made the cut! heres some of the reviews that made me fall in love with these trendy dresses!

This maxi dress is flowy and flattering, high waist and front slit show skinny, long legs, feminine curves, material is super soft for a summer day

This is a very sexy and playful dress. Made of lightweight and flowing material, it is a must-have for your summer wardrobe.

It is long enough to not wear anything underneath, but short enough to still be cool, playful, and flirty

I can see how some buyers think it is too big, but that is the style of the dress… loose and boho… I love this dress, it is the EXACT same as the Free People 100 Degree Dress

Update, I bought 2 other prints since I loved it so much the first one. Again, aaaaaaamazing beautiful!

I love this dress. As always I’m skeptical with amazon buys. But this dress exceeded my expectations!

love this dress! The material is this thin light breezy material & it fit super nicely!

What’s In My Pool Bag?

One of my favorite things to do in the summer, when the Dallas heat is just too much, is to lay by the pool and catch some rays with a good book. Over the many summers of poolsides and tan lines, I have put together a list of all my summer day essentials that I carry in my pool bag!

Beat the summer heat with all my pool bag essentials!

I have perfected the art of what-to-bring-to-the-pool and I thought I could share some of my secrets. I spend countless days laying by the pool and these are the things I ALWAYS bring with me!

Canvas pool/beach bag

This is my pick for a pool or beach bag from Amazon Prime! I love my pool bag because it matches everything! (It’s even cute enough to double as a purse) It’s also big enough to hold towels, sunscreen, a book, and all the other essentials you need!

Moreover, it has 2 pockets on the outside and 3 pockets on the inside, one of which is zippered too. The top of the bag features a secure zipper that will keep all your belongings safe and in place

Tory Burch flip flops

I am obsessed with these flip flops! Tory Burch is one of my favorite brands because It makes me feel cute and classy! Although the brand can be pricey, these flip flops are actually very affordable! They last forever and come in tons of great patterns to match any outfit! You get what you pay for in these flip-flops, just make sure not to leave them at the pool(;
