Jaded On Jaded

Hello Divas!!!

I have been really in love with some of the pale green nail polish looks that I have been seeing everywhere. I just got a professional pedicure and I was feeling cute so I decided to give myself a manicure.

I got a bottle of polish in Jaded and proceeded to paint away.

Now I have truly hideously shaped nails but this manicure just beat me. The first thing that threw me off is that the brush is one of those flat ones. I am not accustomed to the flat brush so that might have been part of the problem.

The other issue that I had was the polish seemed to be thick and gluey in texture..maybe it was a bad bottle or maybe that is the particular formula but I had a hard time putting it on. I actually had to put on three coats because there were lumps and see through spots in different areas.

This color does not go very well with my skin so I am only leaving it on for tomorrow and then I will change to something else.

I am not happy at all with this polish and I will get rid of this shade.

Cleaning Out The Closet

Hello Divas!!!

Have you heard of the saying that when you buy something new you need to go ahead and get rid of something old?

This is so you don't end up getting too much stuff and amassing clutter. This is the theory that you reach an optimal number of 'things' that you can have and then you need to lose something every time you make space for something new.

I decided to go through my closet and I found a few things that I really needed to get rid of. They were items that:
-are too small
-have not been worn in the past 9 months since I moved into my new apartment
-are ripped
-are stained
-are things that I just hate

I went through and found  about 7 tops that should not be in my closet any longer. I pulled them all out and asked my room mate if she wanted any of them. She sifted through and took about 4 of them.

I also found two pairs of shoes that just had to go. One of them was a very cute pink pair of peep toes that I had only worn twice but that hurt my big toe. I have very flat feet and my feet sometimes slide around in shoes a bit when when I walk and that makes them uncomfortable.

I also had a pair that I had worn a few more times but they also wiggled a bit so she took those as well.

I went shopping today, on the sales and clearance racks of course, and ended up buying four tops. I looked at a few shoes but I was not feeling any of them and I am not in a rush to buy shoes anyway.

I am glad that I got 4 cute tops for summer as I will be taking classes over both summer sessions and I would like a few new things since I have been wearing the same clothes for almost a year....and I don't have THAT many.

The included pic is the back of one of the blouses I as you can see it is nothing spectacular but it is simple and cute.

Floaty Summer Tops

Hello Divas!!!

We are now back into the warm weather...yaaaaaaay, and this means it is time for all the HOTTEST fashions available.

I am in love with floaty, flirty summer tops and wanted to share a few with you.

These are so cute and some of them look long enough to be worn as mini dresses so get creative!

I love a few that look a little more dressy for the days when I have to teach. When I stand in front of my class I want to look a little more professional so I might wear something a little more like this.

It looks classy but is not too stuffy.
What are your ideal floaty tops for summer?
