Literally, I can't believe I've been MIA from blogging for 2 months, give or take. Well not completely, yeah I haven't blogged but I have been keeping up with my favorite blogs. It would take me a good month to bring you up to speed as to where I've been and what I've been doing. Let's just sum it up with it's been an insanely, crazy, busy, family-filled, party-planning, memories-made, amazing two months and a few pictures of the first bit. Of course, my beach pics have yet to be uploaded.
My sister's graduation, my soon-to-be brother-in-law's commissioning, two trips to NC, a week at the beach, lots of wedding & shower planning and the world keeps spinning.
In other news, I managed to squeeze in an OPI Axxium Gel Manicure a week and a half ago and have another appointment tonight. There's definintely pros and cons to these bad boys.
- no chipping
- no breaking
- quick nail growth
Although I love the bright colors and matching my toes, my suggestion is to stick with natural colors like Bubble Bath & French Manicure to extend the life of the mani and reduce your chances of looking like you haven't tended to your nails in months. Afterall, the whole point, in my opinion, of paying a bit more for the gel manicure ($30 at my salon) is to prolong the time between manis. I love the gels, but it's going to have to last more than 11 days to convince me to stick w. it instead of reverting back to traditional manis.
I promise more pics to come! I can't wait to get back into routine blogging & bring you up to speed with our summer happenings. cBv
I'm a southern girl at heart, raised on the ways and gentle kindness of a small town Southern man; living in a not-so-southern, too fast paced city that I share a love-hate relationship with. I'm completely type A and love shopping, eating, volunteering, all things Lilly, St. Jude, my family and I desire to be an amazing cook and housewife, just like my mom (Paula Deen's twin) one day when I have a kitchen that doesn't require me to store half of it in a storage closet.
