Instagram + Vine ... do IT!

Good morning y'all!

Apparently, I lost a handful of blog followers yesterday. Well... my guess is they are party poopers who don't know how to have fun! Who doesn't love a good drink? ;) 

Anywho. I wanted to share a really great blog hop with y'all today from A Night Owl Blog. Now, I have seen this pop up in my feed a few times and I'm always sad I missed out. This morning it popped up and I said. I'm gonna do this!

Even though I haven't been that active on this 'ole blog of mine I am very active on Instagram, and a little on Vine! I love finding new people to follow!!

Imma go broke y'all!

...if I keep looking at Monica's Closet Essentials

Seriously. Have you looked at her items?  Here I'll make it easy for you. Follow on Instagram and get sucked in like ME!

My first purchase from her online boutique was Rhinestone Cross Bracelet.

It's only $12 y'all! It's a steal and comes in gold or silver! My Momma loved mine when she saw it so I ordered her one in gold. She'll be the trendiest little Momma you ever did see!

My next purchase was Light Pink Crochet Button Up Blouse.

I love this top, it is so light and flowy! I wore it a couple weeks ago on a date night with the mister and he loved it! I paired it with some skinny jeans, a bauble necklace, and the cross ring pictured above. I also wore it last night to a professional networking event for Young Women in Energy. I paired it with my black slacks, leopard print shoes, and my JA bracelet. It was a great way to still be professional but not feel stuffy.

I also purchased the Tri-Color top and can't wait to wear it!!!

The following are on my wish list and I will not be upset if you buy them for me and they end up on my door step! I'm a size small or medium, depending on how tight they are on the chest. Just throwing that out there... just in case...

Not Your Average Tank
Off the Shoulder Blouse - one in every color puuuhlease!
Animal Print Shine Top
Striped Tee with Zipper....    

.... ok, so basically order me one of everything on her site.

Are you obsessed yet?

Do you have a favorite online boutique? 
I need to know!

Rootbeer adds a little pep to your step?

I'm going to be quite honest with y'all. There is no motivation for me to work today. 

Maybe because it's gloomy outside. 

I always want to just curl up on the couch with a blanket and watch movies all day.

So, to add a little smile to my face I ran down to the vending machine to grab a Root Beer to go with my lunch! Then I was sad because I realized it would be so much better with a scoop of ice-cream! 
Am I right, or am I right?

Here's to me hoping you have a productive day, and my motivation gets back to me!

Happy Monday!

The Nail Files - Shellac

Hello Friday!!! I have been waiting for yooooooouuuuu!
February, why did you wait so long to show up? 

It's been forever since I linked up with my friend, Vicki for The Nail Files!

Today I wanted to share with you, my first ever Shellac manicure!

Pretty, right? 
Last Friday, I had reached a breaking point. I had a jam packed weekend and I just couldn't. I'm sure had I of attended the event that night I would have had a blast but I needed time all to myself. My husband was out with a friend for the night and I decided I was going to take some much needed ME time! 

I headed over to the nail salon, and sat my but in the chair to wait for my first ever Shellac manicure! 
I have to say I am a tad disappointed, one of my nails started to peel a bit by the cuticle. I don't know if this is normal.It hasn't spread... so I hope it was just that one spot. I am in love with the shine and low maintenance feel to them! 

Have you ever had Shellac before? 
What were your thoughts? 
Have you ever just had to back away from everything and everyone for just one night?
