Spring Blush Mani

 

I’m giddy for spring to come after getting a taste of 60 degree weather last Monday. Of course, it snowed this week and temperatures drop to a high of 30 on Saturday…but who says I can’t spring-themed something I can control? After the crazy neon mani, I’ve decided to go for a blushing demure look. The two polishes I used are Revlon’s Sheer Rose and H&M pink glitter topcoat in Zoo.

Neon Mani

Temperatures shoot past 30 degrees and I’m already gunning for spring! Here is the bright mani to match!

OPI when life gives you lemons

The OPI shade definitely is a lime green in the bottle and on my nails. I had to brush 3 coats for this polish to be completely opaque and vibrant. No top coat involved and still no chipping after 3 days–not bad!

When will it be warm enough for me to start having fun with toe polish?

Anniversary 

3.8.2014

A whole year flew by! The year 2014 was especially important and tumultuous for me. It was filled with life-changing events–new job, moving across 5 states, having a wedding, buying a house.

This past weekend was a celebration of those events, not just my wedding, and I had a blast.

We started the celebration Friday night by having a decadent chocolate fondue dessert course. My coworker made this for our dinner party earlier in the week and I was confident enough to do round II by myself ;). It’s surprisingly easy and unbelievably delicious and addicting!

On Saturday night, we went to a posh Thai restaurant in the eclectic Squirrel Hill region. The Silk Elephant had an upscale (albeit PACKED) ambiance, attentive waitstaff and reasonable prices. I would come back on a less crowded week night in the summer, for sure! Here, you can see our matchy matchy wedding rings forged out of tungsten and carbon fiber :).

The utensils at the restaurant all had these large, elaborate hooks at the end–groovy! You can catch a glimpse of my delicious pad thai with beef slices. Delish.

My celebration continued onto Monday where I treated myself to my favorite pastry in the whole world: pain au chocolat! This is the Panera version, simply labeled: chocolate pastry. Not even close to the buttery richness of its Parisian version, but scores better than a doughnut ;_.
