pink and zigzag.

After creating these nails, I realized they would be perfect for Valentine's Day.  They're a fun twist on the usual red and pink.  I've been loving different nail designs lately and I thought that zigzags would be fun to try.  I think they look cute with the pink background color.  Of course, the color scheme could easily be changed for this.  In fact, I may just try something similar in green or blue!

the puffer.

The weather has been crazy this week, with a downpour one day and snow the next.  I have no idea what's going on, but I hope it ends soon!  In the meantime, I've been battling whatever Mother Nature throws at me with this amazing puffer jacket.  It's one of the warmest jackets I own and I absolutely love the fur accent on the hood.  Today I paired it with a beanie and light pink cords.  I have to say, I'm loving fun pants lately, whether they be patterned or colored.  It's nice to switch things up from the basic jeans once in a while.

In other news, I am now blogging for CollegeFashionista!  I'm really excited to be contributing to such a fantastic site.  Check out my Style Guru bio here and don't forget to look out for a new post on that site every Friday as I write an ACCESSORIES REPORT.  I'll still be writing for this blog too, so look out for upcoming fashion, nail, and food posts soon!

wavy stripes.

OPI Got A Date To-Knight!, OPI Servin' Up Sparkle, L.A. Colors white and navy polishes
The combination of pink and navy, whether it be in an outfit or for a nail design, is a formula that is practically always guaranteed to work.  I like it because it is an updated version of the classic navy and red sailor combo.  And of course, it looks even better with a bit of sparkle!

winter wear.

The weather outside has changed from frightful to absolutely horrifying.  I don't know about you, but when the thermometer reaches seven degrees Fahrenheit, all I want to do is cuddle up with a hot cup of tea and a good book.  Luckily, that's what I've been doing, at least when I'm not freezing beyond belief to take the quick fashion pic or two.  Oh well.  Counting down the days until summer!

new year 2014.

Happy 2014 everyone!  I found this lovely nail-spiration design on Pinterest and decided to recreate it myself.  I think it's just the way to start the year off right!

I'm so excited about this new year and all of the amazing things it will bring.  At the same time though, I'm extremely grateful for everything that's happened this past year.  In particular, my time in Italy was one of the most memorable experiences of my life and I am so thankful to have had the chance to explore such a wonderful country.  I definitely can't wait to return!

Thank you for following me in 2013 and I look forward to sharing more fashion and life bits in the months to come!
