Nails: All in the Family

I love painting my nails with a wide variety of colors. Painted nails are the ultimate accessory; they can say a lot about one's personality. These last two weeks I've been obsessed with the color pink and all of its varying shades. This week I decided to use two nail polishes, a pale pink - Sinful Colors in Star Fish - for my ring finger and a hot pink - Sinful Colors in Boom Boom - for the remaining nails. I definitely liked the overall look because both shades are in the same family but at the same time don't compete with eachother. Plus, this Saturday I'll be participating in a breast cancer awareness walk so I thought using these colors would go hand in hand with the cause.

Silver Girl

This is my current summer read, Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand.  I got it for review purposes for my other blog, but I am really enjoying it.  Hope fully, I'll be able to finish it upin the next week or two.  Afterward, I'll likely post my overall thoughts on the book but all signs point to it being an awesome summer read.

I'd love to know what's your current summer read?

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

This past May my hubby and I had the opportunity to visit Stockholm {Sweden} as a part of his grad school program.  It was my first time abroad and the truth is I was nervous to fly over seas.  Despite the nerves, I was so happy that I made the trip because the sights stunning, the people were extremely friendly and the food was delicious.

Lazy Musical Sunday

I love this song; but I hadn't listened to it for a while. It wasn't until I heard it on The Voice on Tuesday that I had to look up the original version by Cyndi Lauper.
