Matte Mani

This picture makes the gold look all shiny but it is not. This OPI Gwen Stefani holiday edition gold is a refreshingly pale with a smooth matte finish. It dries so quickly and just looks super chic. The alternating lilac color is from Trust Fund Beauty. Their brushes are wide and full and provide great coverage. The gold chips pretty quickly but this purple lasts a while.

I am going gaga over all the flowers blooming around my house. They are really taking their time this year! This time last year, I had every color of day lilies and hydrangeas. My favorite of the bunch always bloom first and this time I managed to capture the rare beauty! Look at that rich, lush violet color with a bold prick of complementary yellow. Gorgeous! These do well right in my pond so I don’t have to water them! My water lilies have bloomed this year too but for some reason they close up at night and I can never get a picture. Sneaky things…

My Mimiboo makes her appearance! She is 1 year old now and coming up on our adoption anniversary (June 28th). I know this date so well yet I question when I got my marriage license all the time. Seriously–like August 13th? 16th? My husband knows this date.

Sunny Mani

I used China Glaze in a metallic sand shade and Essie’s Peach Side Babe for the accent nail. I also popped on a gold-edged nail sticker! I like the creaminess of the colors together.

Hubby and I went to Muddy Waters for a happy hour last week and it was too much fun. 4:30pm – 6:30pm weekdays this place will serve you $1 east coast oysters on the rocks! We ordered 24 of them of which I consumed 6. Then we feasted like kings and continued to eat the hot chicken entree, cornbread skillet with jalapeno cajun butter and finished it all off with a full order of beignets! The dipping sauce was a melted caramel with a shot of bourbon–luxe! Yes, our bill ended up being very high but getting a taste of New Orleans in Pittsburgh was nice enough. We will be back! 

Here are a few of my USS Midway pics that didn’t make it to my San Diego post. This ship was a 3-min walking trip from our hotel! Good times!
