Un-Plugging


It is spring break and as tradition has it, my family and I are heading west to our favorite little bungalow in the desert.  Dear friends of ours are staying in our house while we are away.  I am so ready to un-plug and just be for the next several days.  It doesn't hurt that beautiful flowers are everywhere you look and it rarely ever rains.  Just sunny days and cool nights with star filled skies.

Yesterday I treated myself to a mani/pedi.  I'm not usually one to get "worked on" but decided to splurge this time.  I went with gel shellac on my nails which lasts about 2-3 weeks.  We used the same color on my toes only the nail tech pulled out the bedazzle gun and added a top coat of glitter.  Now my toenails are sparkly ;), something a little different for me.  I figured vacation is the time to have a little fun, right?

I will miss you all, but am looking forward to relaxing poolside.  Happy Easter and have a great week!

  3. I just did my toes, because the warmer weather has me breaking out the sandals, but I almost never bother with my fingers because I'm so rough on my hands. Have a terrific vacation!

  10. Enjoy the rest! Your nail polish color is gorgeous! I experiment all the time with nail color. The great thing about it is that if it doesn't work out, you never have to use it again!
