How’s everyone feelin’ after the holiday? Full of food and love, we hope! We’ve got another short week ahead of us, and it will officially be 2016, what whatttt? We’re feelin’ excited about this new year, thinking of all of the projects, adventures and fun we’re going to have both in life and on the blog. We’ve also have been reflecting back on this past year, which has been full of posts that we’re very proud of. Reminisce with us for a moment and check out our favorite posts of 2015…
Happy last day of November, lovelies! We’ll be festive & holiday themed in no time (…as in tomorrow…). But before we jump into gift guides and all things peppermint, we’re still loving ourselves some fall metallics, and thought we’d do a fun & easy nail tutorial! What we’re really digging about this is the subtle nude look, making it really versatile for any outfit color palette.
Follow instructions below!
Nude or soft pink base — we used Essie’s Eternal Optimist
Metallic accent color with a subtle contrast — we used Penny Talk
Clear topcoat — we cannot recommend Seche Vite enough!
Wax paper or a plate
01. Pour a small amount of your metallic color onto your wax paper or plate and set aside
02. Paint 2 coats of your base color and allow to fully dry
03. Once your base coat dries, use your toothpick to dip into the metallic paint
04. Gently dot 3 points onto your nails in a straight line
05. Once dried, apply your top coat, pop on the Netflix and allow to fully dry
Today and tomorrow are 2 very specials days…today is National Donut Day, and tomorrow is Reg’s birthday! We get to spend the weekend together with our guys, good roomies and delicious food – aka the perfect birthday. We’re hoping to pop over to Harpoon for a brewery tour on Sat, have a fancy-pants seafood dinner that night, and enjoy another tasty brunch on Sunday morning. Cheers to that!
cct // I’m attending 2 weddings in 1 day this summer (!!) and have been searching for a dress. I’ve been debating Rent The Runway, have any of you guys used it before?? I have my eye on this dress and this dress!
rkv // I’ve had a handful of life changes going on recently, and have been feeling like my brain just can’t calm down because of it. I mentioned it to Christa and she sent me this helpful little article.
PS. Did you guys get a chance to hear our interview on The Dinner Special podcast?? Learn all about how we met, our favorite places to grab a bite in our two cities, and what our last meal would be (hint — it’s covered in cheese and sauce)!
Is it really Friday already? Not that we’re complaining, but man did this week fly by. Busy bees I guess! I moved into my new place, and Reg is getting into moving mode herself. This weekend is Cinco De Mayo weekend AND the Kentucky Derby, are you attending any parties? Drink a delicious mint julep or margarita, on us!
