I love these warmer temperatures!  It’s 90 degrees, sunny and not a cloud in the sky!

Easy Going Glee


Out in my rose garden, Glee by Jesse’s girl & photographed with, Easy Going (the rose).


At Rite Aid today I picked up 5 polishes by Jessie’s Girl, Glee is one of them.  Rite Aid has a spend $30 on nail polish promo get $10 store credit so, I spent the last of my money on this brand to get my reward.  I’ve never owned anything by this brand before but have seen it recommended on blogs, it’s fantastic.  I’m a sucker for teal or turquoise polishes.




Lastly, I added a light coat of glitter:  Clown Puke by KB Shimmer





Freshly Squeezed


Orange, guava & grapefruit juice.  It kind of  looks like the Today Show logo. The e.l.f. Party Peach coverage was impressive and only needed one coat.  I only have 3 Spa Ritual polishes that I’ve picked up at TJ Maxx I really wish I owned more.  I used the office supply hole reinforcements from Target that a multiple blogs had recommended, they’re fantastic.

e.l.f. – Party Peach

Spa Ritual – Poppy

Wet n Wild –  Sunny Side Up, Clear

Seche Vite

Yummy Kale


I love Kale, yes the leafy green vegetable. Kale chips homemade or store bought are a weakness of mine.  I was inspired by a $0.99 reusable grocery bag I own from Whole Foods.  I had stocked up on Zoya during their Earth Day sale which was fortunate as this called for many shades of green.  I don’t own any creme colors for the swirls so I mixed my own.
