Why I’m Single…

Because no man wants to get hurt or cut, if they try to hold my hand…kidding, kidding…No, but seriously, see:

I mean, how rad is my new arrowhead ring?!

The Past, Present, & Future

Things have been beyond mad busy.  I feel like I haven’t stopped moving this month and it’s only the second week of August…but I wouldn’t have it any other way…And so I present to you a recap of shoes…in the form of the past, present, and the future.

If you know me, then you know I love to wear open toed-shoes to show off my toes (which look more like thumbs…but I’ll save that for another post..or not)…so it’s come as quite a surprise that I have been wearing lots of sneakers and flats lately…

The Past: a good ole pair of Chucks…nothing says classic American like these guys…They were originally a bright yellow but after being worn and washed SO many times, they are now the perfect shade of light yellow. These are also the one pair of shoes that I’ve had since I was 11…So wait, did my feet seriously stop growing then?


Next up, The Present: some cute lil sneakers from Urban Outfitters that make me feel all of 12 years old.


And my most recent purchase as of yesterday, which we will call The Future because A)I have yet to wear them and B) They make me feel like an old person…which is what I will eventually become in the future…Hey! See what I did there? Bought these loafers at Urban Outfitters while I was waiting for friends who were running late to lunch, oops? They are the though, the perfect shade for Fall.

Getting Nailed

Personally, I’ve never understood  a female’s fascination with getting their nails done…or did…whatever, which ever you prefer. For me, it’s always been a waste of time and money given that no manicure lasts on anyone for more than 3 days- no matter how intense your topcoat is…and acrylics? Oh no, don’t even get me staaaarted on those. I had them once for about a total of 48 hours the weekend of my Senior Prom and then it was over. Forever.

That being said though, I can admit that I am a total sucker for any at home DIY mani/pedi. Just ask any of the guys I’ve dated…A perfect manicure comes at the top of my list. Priorities, priorities, I know. But hey! You know I’m (kinda) right? Like think about it…an attractively cute girl with knarly nails or toes….#dealbreaker

Don’t believe that I’m a sucker for a good DIY mani? Here’s the proof. My at home nail salon:

And that’s just the half of it…oops. And so I present to you the latest member of the family….American Apparel nail lacquer in “Downtown LA”….Love love love the name and love love love the shade of red…It is just perfect and it’s actually my second bottle of “Downtown Red” because I used the last bottle down til it’s last stroke.

So what say you on this lovely Wednesday night? Have no plans…Perfect. GO.GET.NAILED.
