Life Changing Moments: pretty nails, a braid and other glorious things

Favorite fashion moments captured this week:


Favorite nails: 

What to do when you’re on Christmas vacay and don’t have time to get your nails done? Sally Hansen Nail Effects. 

For less than the price of a polish-change, you get a box with 16 stickers, a nail file, and cuticle stick. Press the sticker down, peel off the access and file the tip: Wah-la!



Favorite hair fix:

Fish tail braid!

I was running late (per usual) and snapped a couple of pics at a stop-light on the way to school. Since the world is kind and fabulous, I was so lucky to miss my braid and accidentally capture the sunset in one pic.


Favorite way to wear winter-ish clothes:

. . . when it’s not actually cold.
I’m not usually a cold weather gal, but this long hot summer gave me time to get ready. Many ladies I know have been dying to incorporate winter items, but the temperatures in many parts of the country are standing in the way. This week I through on an oversized leather jacket and suede booties with other more breathable fabrics and felt warm outside and comfy inside. Success.


 Loving life on the inside and out,
