little luna

 Normally I wouldn't post a blog about my cat, but while I started to type an email she was curious to the sound of my keys being pushed and had to check it out. When she saw the words appearing after each other on the screen, she started to hit the screen and sniff it like it was a bug or something. She is so confused that it's funny, and I felt the need to share my love for my Luna bear.

At Petsmart where I adopted Luna :) she was so tiny then!
Her first day home! She thought her reflection was another kitten and would hiss and bat her paws at the mirror.
One of her other favorite toys.
She got stuck behind the door and didn't know how to get out!
Normally I wouldn't subject my animals to such humiliation, but this was just too cute to pass up on. First and last time the sweater was on her.
Loves purses just as much as her mama!
Helping me to be a safe driver ;)
Poor little thing after surgery :(

Sorry for the ridiculous amount of pictures, but you can't tell me that she isn't a cutie :)

a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

Polish is a must-have for summer, especially if you are headed to the beach or you wear sandals and flip flops everyday, so why not have a variety of choices and change it up all summer long?
I hardly ever follow the "trends" of nail polish colors because I believe almost all colors are going to look good and the trend changes week to week anyways. First of all, I don't have time to do my toes and nails in a different color every week, maybe every other week, but that's about all I can promise. I've selected a variety of rainbow-esque colors in all different brands and price ranges to try. I can't guarantee I'll keep every color on for any length of time, considering some of the colors (yellow and orange) are a little too bright for my liking. We'll see though.

Off With Her Red! Alice in Wonderland Collection from OPI
Bright Tights- Essie
Lemondrops- Barielle
Mint- China Glaze
Deep Blue- Yves Saint Laurent
Ms. Perfectly Pink- Le Vernis by Lancome
Tallulah- Nars

My two favorites not really in the rainbow are Parlez-vous OPI and Versailles by Nars
The smokey-violet and champagne colors look great with anything considering they are more of neutral tones than the above rainbow choices. Plus, how could I have a rainbow of nail polishes and not have a "pot of gold" at the end. ;)

Parlez-vous OPI is my current nail color and I love it.
It is more of a dark grey once you apply two coats, but in the sun the color is lavender. A friend let me borrow it, and now I'm thinking I'll have to go buy my own. Thanks Bec!
(Just a quick shot with the web cam of my nails painted in Parlez-vous OPI!)

bohemian babe

I am so into braiding my hair lately. No hairstyle is complete to me without at least one small braid. My friend has asked me to style her hair for another friends wedding in a few weeks and the only styles I can think of are involving braids! I don't know what my fascination is with them, but if a quick braid is going to give a little more detail to my usual chignon/messy bun, then why not do it?! I've been googling pictures of celebrities for braided up-do ideas and here are a few of my favs.
