Nail Selfies

If you paint your nails and don’t take a picture, did it happen?

Nail selfies — they are the beauty equivalent of “pics or it didn’t happen”. My nail selfies have come a long way (unlike my outfit selfies, which are always, ALWAYS taken in the bathroom mirror at work.) At first, I just took pictures of them in “the claw” position…all twisted together like I was fixing to mix up a potion around my cauldron or something. Then, I discovered I could hold a bottle of nail polish and show off my nails. Then I started wearing Jamberry, and I had to get more creative.

I hold all manner of things — bottles of lotion, necklaces, scarves, Ipsy bags. Chocolate. Wine. Coffee. Sometimes I coordinate my wraps and my prop. Sometimes I ask someone else to take the picture LIKE A GOOBER. Sometimes I embarrass myself and others by holding onto things in public and awkwardly turning my cell phone camera so it’s at the perfect angle. I have no shame when it comes to nail selfies.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Kiss me Ombre and Black and White Polka - Available on

The Salt Life

I've loved the beach as long as I can remember. I love the smell of the ocean, the white noise from the crashing waves, the sun and the breeze, and my toes in the sand.

I began subscribing to Ipsy Glambag in February last year. I was also a Birchbox subscriber because I love the following things: mail and makeup. The highlight of my month was the little box of goodies each month from Birchbox, so naturally when I found out about Ipsy, I had to jump on board.

Savannah’s Birth Story

Oh hi.

Today is my first day back to work and I have the feels. The past eight weeks has been a whirlwind. It’s like…the days went so fast, it seems like I’ve had two children my whole life,

BOWS! or why I’m excited for a little girl [GIVEAWAY]

rockabilly baby place 1

Since the day I found out I’m having a little girl, I can’t help but think pink.

As if there was ANY doubt I would dress my child up like a teeny, tiny mini-me diva, people sometimes ask me, “what color is her room going to be?” (PINK DUH) “Are you going to paint her

First Haircut

photo copy 4

Sometimes you have a baby born with a little hair, and then that baby’s hair falls out and doesn’t really grow back in for two and a half years. And sometimes you look at that child, the one who was practically bald a year ago, and say, “He doesn’t need a haircut yet. His curls

Peep this Christmas Spirit

christmas spirit

Not long ago, my team at work consisted of just one lady. Then I moved in, and there were two. Then another joined the team and frankly, we were getting a bit tired of all the geek and tech stuff lining the walls, so we took matters into our own hands.

Christmas, you guys. This

A Disney World Third Birthday

third birthday at disney world

Before I get into an extremely picture heavy #IPPP post, can we discuss for one hot mintue that my child IS THREE YEARS OLD? Um, how? I am not the first mama to say that and I certainly won’t be the last, but time is getting faster and faster. It’s amazing and heartbreaking. Motherhood rules.
