Yesterday we ate
Sushi, crepes, fondue galore
At Haiku we were.
Even though I didn’t get the most votes, I was happy to find out that I was the chosen winner, and as my prize I would get a guest Lucky Magazine Pinterest board for all the month of May.
A few days later I woke up to a delightful e-mail stating that they loved my closet post so much, that they’ve decided to feature it on the main Lucky Magazine website itself! I know this might not seem like a big milestone as compared to the more established fashion bloggers out there, but to me, this made my year!
Most of all, I feel like it wouldn’t be possible without the motivation of my readers those beautiful 40 people who voted on my entry. If you were one of them, thank you so much and thank you for reading! xoxo JN
I’m officially going to stop saying what color I’m crazy about this Spring, because it seems to change on a weekly basis. This week, it’s back to corals. I remember when it was all the rage two Summers ago, but it’s seems like such a classic Spring color to put to waste.
What I am sure about though, is how crazy I am about this handbag I got from JustFab this week. Continue reading
Happy belated Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! If you’re not a mother, I hope you all got to spend with your mothers this past weekend, as I did!
My family and friends have a tradition of getting together and the fathers cook for the mothers. This year the party was held at my house and it was bliss. We even had a mini reunion with some friends we hadn’t seen in over 8 years!Also, a new thing for me as a newly engaged woman is that, this year I also met up with Ian’s mother for a Mother’s Day brunch.
Anyways, since Mother’s Day is such bright and happy occasion, I decided to play around with primary colors blue and yellow. Hope you like! xoxo JN
Rarely do I feel the need to take a photo from another site, but this manicure designed by Kristina Estabrooks is a must share! I was flipping through Harper’s Bazaar magazine last month and I don’t know if it was the intensity of Melissa Tammerij‘s eyes or the geometry of her manicure, but it immediately captivated me and I’ve wanted to try it ever since.
Since I finally jumped on the bandwagon and picked up Butler Please by Essie (here), I decided to try out this design and I could not be more pleased. It’s so eye catchingly fun and different than my usual feminine colored/styled nails.
I haven’t experienced the significant amount of chipping that other people have reported but maybe it’s the top coat I use, which is pretty much bullet proof (here) or maybe it’s the additional white nail polish design on my tips (I used a white stripping polish for the design and freehanded it).
All in all , Butler Please is a very fun color but at the same time I can’t say I rave about it like everyone else seems to be doing. To me it’s just a pretty basic blue, and for $8/bottle, I don’t think it’s worth it. You could be better off with any other cheaper drugstore blues, like Pacific Blue ($2.99) by Sally Hansen (it’s a pretty close dupe). xoxo JN
