Back to the Grind

Today ends a week of vacation for me. I took last week off to spend time with my girls. We didn't have any plans to go anywhere, so I guess you could have called it a staycation. Man did I need that! Actually I think I need another week already! I had so many ideas of what I wanted to do. I wanted to do something fun with the girls everyday, I wanted to clean out my closet and the garage, I wanted to focus on Cult Nails stuff. Well, I didn't manage to do all that, some days were focused on Cult Nails, some on the girls and as for the closet and garage, well those are still on my to do list! It seems one week just isn't enough to accomplish everything I need to in my life!


While off of work, my cousin and her kids came down and we took a walk down to the beach. Unbelievably that is the only time I saw the beach while I was off work! I took advantage of the moment and had my daughter take some outfit of the day pics for me.

I'm wearing a top I picked up at Forever 21 and a pair of linen shorts I grabbed at Old Navy. I'm not a huge Old Navy fan, but every so often you can find something decent there. I am carrying my Steve Madden Espadrilles with me.
It started to rain while we were there, hence the grayness of the pics!
The kids were having us take pictures of them jumping, so I of course had to get in on the action!



I know it might be crazy to be thinking of Spring already, but I have to start early so that the polishes are made in time. While I was off I took a bit of time mixing colors. I was trying to create a dusty pink. Well apparently if you add gray to light pink, you end up with lavender! It wasn't what I was looking for, but I liked it enough that I wore it for a few days. You can see some shimmer in the bottle, but it is really a creme. I accidentally used a white I mixed some shimmer into. The white ate the shimmer, so I couldn't tell there was shimmer in there until I mixed it with the pink. But it didn't translate to the nail, so I was fine with that.  Even though this isn't what I am planning for Spring, it's pretty. It reminds me of an OPI I have though. I should break them out and compare.

  2. That's a lovely color, but you're right, it's similar to something... I just can't put my finger on it (or put it on my finger?). I must say though, aside from the polish - you look absolutely stunning and gorgeous. That last picture of you jumping is amazing.
