Monday Mani| Trust in the Lord

via


Happy Monday, loves!!! I hope you all had a great weekend! Personally, I had a rather trying weekend. I thought I would share this Proverbs 3:5-6 scripture with you lovelies, because maybe it will help someone else going through a difficult time. Even when things seem difficult, I always KNOW that I can trust in HIM

Often times my manicures reflect my mood. Here are some manicure inspirations that match my current mood:

My Style Thursday| Goodwill Haul


from left to right:

Old Navy Royal Blue Blouse 


The picture isn't really true to color...bummer! I really need a bloggy camera! Anyway, Little R is playing sandlot football for the first time this year! Yesterday, I went to Goodwill to find a couple of blue shirts to wear to his games. He plays for the Blue Devils...and I'm sure some folks will rock some Duke Blue Devil paraphernalia...umm...NOT this girl! University of Virginia grad over here!! Wahoowa!!! All day, err day!

Worthington Embellished Black Blouse 


Seriously, this shirt is everything! It didn't have a tag on it, but I'm pretty sure it has never been worn before. I will definitely be rocking this baby this upcoming fall with a pair of black skinnies. All black errthang!


Splendid Teal Blouse 


I'm not really sure if this blouse is my style or not?! It's a beautiful teal color, with flowy sleeves that have an eyelet detailed trim. I didn't try any of these items on...so we shall see!

Red Camel Blouse


Again, I was on the hunt for blue! I'll need to wear this before summer is over.  I think Red Camel is a Belk brand. Look at the cute detail: 


Denim Shorts with White Polka Dots


Oh my goodness, these are so cute! I can't wait to see how they fit me after I get them washed! I may possibly wear these with a basic white tank to Little R's game this upcoming Saturday. 


I am happy to report each of these pieces only cost $3.79 each! Score!!! Tell me what you think. Do you shop at the Goodwill? And if you don't, umm why not?! LoL.

Until Next Time,

Monday Mani| All Black...Ok, Ok with a Hint of Gold!

via
Heyyy! Sorry for the late post, friends! Happy Monday anyway! For some reason I've had the strong urge to paint my nails black! I mean I really want to just paint them black, but I found this chic manicure look with the thin gold stripe, and you know I can't say no to gold anything! LoL. I'm not depressed or anything like that...I don't know something about all black is just very classic to me. The one drawback I can think of is the pain I'll have to go through to take it off! Blehhh. What do you think? Should I paint my nails black or nah? 

Until Next Time,

My Style Thursday| Black Blazer, Black Tee, Boyfriend Jeans, Chucks...Yeah, That's Me!

I mean seriously?! There is not much to say here! I could personally rock this look err day!! Haha! You could throw some heels in the car just in case you needed to dress this look up, and you're golden! What do you think? Would you rock this look? Let me know!

Until Next Time,

Monday Mani| First Day of School

via
Happy Monday, friends!!

Today is Little R's first day of the 1st grade so I've had thoughts of good ole' yellow school bus all morning. Did you ride the school bus as a kid?  I don't know that I would ever be adventurous enough to polish my nails yellow! That's a bit much for me! I do; however, think this yellow french manicure is super cute! 

On a more confessional note, days like this make having shared custody really hard. My Facebook newsfeed is flooded with pictures of all the little ones dressed in their new school clothes waiting either anxiously or patiently for the school bus! Unfortunately, it's highly likely we, as in Big R and I, won't even get to see a picture of Little R today. It makes me sad! : ( I plan to talk more about my experience as a "soon to be" stepparent in future posts. For now, I will just settle with the idea of school bus yellow french manicure!

I hope your Monday is a good one!! Tell me what you think about this spin on a french manicure in the comment section below!!

Until Next Time,

Monday Mani| Bite the Bullet



via
Happy Monday, loves. So, is it just me, or is that 'Bite the Bullet' image HOT!!!! This week's manicure is none other than Wet n Wild Megalast in the color 'Bite the Bullet.' Wet n Wild polishes never let me down. I find them very easy to apply, and for that reason alone they are a go to for me. I think I happen to have two bottles of this same color! Oops!!! ; ) 

I'm obviously a fan of this color. What do you think?


Until next time,
