My New Favorite Polish For Summer!

Hey there, lovely readers!  How was your holiday weekend??

Travis and I spent all day yesterday roaming the city and enjoying a sunny day off. And on Sunday, I discovered an awesome new nail polish that I’ve been so excited to share with you!

This polish is called “Mint Sorbet” by Sally Hansen and it was only $2.50!  It has held up really well for the past couple of days.  (I’m notorious for chipping my polish hours after I apply it, but this stuff dried fast and has been chip-free since I put on mid-Sunday.)

Want to see how it looks?

It’s definitely bold, but you all know by now how much I love bold polish!

What do you think of “Mint Sorbet”?  Got any other fun polish shades that you’re busting out for Summertime?  And how did you celebrate the holiday weekend??

Burgers And Nails— A GENIUS New Blog!

I love two things above almost all else: cool fingernail and cheeseburgers.  (No joke, Travis makes fun of me because anytime we have to purchase something expensive I say, “Do you know how many cheeseburgers I could buy with that money?!”)

So imagine my pure joy at the creation of a blog called Burgers and Nails!

Women send in photos of themselves eating awesome, enormous burgers while showing off equally awesome manicures.

Amazing, right?!

Have a fantastic holiday weekend, sweet readers!  I’m having a girly day with my bridesmaids on Saturday, meeting with the wedding photographer on Sunday, and enjoying a day out and about in San Francisco on Monday… pretty much the perfect weekend!  See you back here on Tuesday!!

What do you think of Burgers and Nails?!  Have you stumbled across any good blogs lately?   And what are your plans for the holiday weekend?!  (Anyone eating burgers?!)  Tell me about your plans in the comments!

We’ve already discussed white jeans and it seems like most of you give ‘em a thumbs up!  Now check out these purdy white dresses!

Wedding Wednesday: Awesome, Alternative Ceremony Decor!

Travis and I spent last weekend laying sod at my parents’ house and trying to figure out how to fit all of our guests into a very small ceremony space.  It’s definitely going to be a little unconventional, but I came across this article on alternative ceremony spaces, and it has me brimming with ideas!

Check ‘em out:

Typography

Outdoor Chapel

Oversized Paper Flowers

Bright Furniture

What do you think of these less-than-traditional ceremony spaces?  Have any ideas of your own for individualizing an altar?  Where did you married gals say your vows?  Unmarried gals: what kind of ceremony space would you love to tie the knot in?  Let’s talk ceremonies in the comments!

Did You Watch The Premiere Of The Bachelorette??

The Bachelorette began a whole new season last night… did you tune in?

{via}

I have to admit, I wasn’t thrilled when they announced that Ashley H. was going to be the Bachelorette.  But honestly, there’s not much that can stop me from tuning in… it’s just too juicy!

And the premiere proved me right yet again… things with single-dad, Bentley, are already heating up and causing drama.  Should be a great season!

Did you watch last night’s episode?  Are you happy to see Ashley H. as the Bachelorette, or were you hoping for someone else?  Which of the men would you give your first impression rose to?  Let’s chat about the Bachelorette in the comments!

And if you haven’t done so already, make sure to enter this week’s giveaway!
