First of all, thank you so much for all of the emails and comments about honeymoon destinations.  I love hearing from you guys.  It's so nice to have another perspective and to hear about your own experiences!

Obsessed with this polish  from Essie's latest collection.  It's called "Yogaga" and I'm pretty sure it will be my go-to for my next mani.  

My Maid-of-Honor is going to be a TV star next week (along with a handful of my other friends!)!  There is a new series on Lifetime called The Week the Women Went, which premieres on Tuesday at 10pm est.  All of the women in the small town of Yemassee, SC were sent away for seven days, leaving the men to take care of the homes, businesses, and children.  It will be so neat to see them on national television!  Make sure to tune in!

Got my hair done yesterday (best feeling!) and then checked up on our reception venue.

I would really, really like to add this Tortoise Glass Nut Bowl to my bar area.  (My limes and lemons would like this bowl as their new home.)

New eyeshadows.
MAC Brule, Omega, Quarry, and Espresso (L to R, starting at top)

Loving this little zip pouch that my co-worker brought me back from a market in Turkey.  I suppose this is the closest thing to actually going there myself, huh?  :)
She said it was an unbelievable vacation and would recommend it to anyone looking to see gorgeous sights and experience an amazing culture.  Said she got to see where Mary lived, walk on stone streets that had marks dug in them from where chariots would run, she stayed in a hotel that was deep down in a cave, and she also got to see the underground cities that the Christians built when they were hiding from persecution. All among many, many other experiences!  I totally want to go now.

That's all I got.  We made it past Humpday!


  1. Ooooh I love that new Essie color! I haven't checked the new collection out yet, thanks for the reminder to go do so!

  2. Love this post...and it's ironic that you mention Turkey because my husband and I are in the process of planning a vacation, and we were thinking to go to Israel and possibly Turkey, but we weren't sure whether or not we should do Turkey or not...I've heard great things though, and it sounds like you're friend had an awesome time, so I'm definitely leaning towards going there! :)

  3. I love that color and I spotted it a couple days ago too! It's a great everyday color. LOVE! Just came across your blog and I'm happy I did! New follower.
