I know it’s been forever since I posted, but I received a promotion at work (yay!) and no longer have as much free time as I did before.

I’ll try my best to return to blogging soon!!

My Dreamdate

24 Jan

Actually this post is about nail polish – sorry for the let down!

As many of you know, I am always on the lookout for great polish that I can wear to work that is both fun and “appropriate.” Enter Confetti’s Dreamdate.

It is a sheer pink sparkly polish with enough glitter to catch the light but not too much to distract. I love it because not only is the polish fast drying, but you can reapply coats without it showing up so it is perfect for someone like me who is awesome at chipping her nails!


What nail colors do you like to wear for work?

I know that it hasn’t been that long, but what is it in us that expects to see a little improvement after two weeks at a new exercise regime?

I’ve been sore the following two days after seeing my trainer and I’ve made an improvement on eating well.

I recently saw this on Pinterest and it got me thinking that I have to be more patient! I’m now marking my calendar by the weeks noted above and won’t expect anything until 12 weeks have passed. That’s not too long – it’s only until the week of March 26th…

Do you ever expect something more because you’ve been working hard?

Yoga Style

Today’s Friday Style is inspired by my early morning yoga classes. I am obsessed with the first top (Nike) and loooove the cozy wrap jacket (Old Navy)! Happy Friday!
