Essie in Action

Gotta show some team support at the Bears vs. Browns game tonight in Cleveland! This is Essie in Action. Since I can't cheer for the Detroit Lions...Go Browns!



Weekend Shopping Haul

We covered so much ground shopping this weekend. Lots of good finds with the mother and sister in law in town!

As I was leaving H&M I told my mother in law, "all I want is a belt with a big bow on it." And the first thing I saw when I walked into Zara in Soho was....

Bam! Isn't this cute? It comes in cream too. $19.99


I was happy the forecast said rain today so I could wear my new Dizzy rain boots (or I should probably say, booties)! I got these at Laila Rowe at W84th and Columbus. Super cute store with a large selection of fun rain boots and accessories. These ankle rain booties retail at $24. 

I really wanted a new laptop bag for work. Something that looked a little more like a purse to transfer from work to night. I found this Remi & Reid bag at Century 21. I love the individual pockets inside for my work badge and phone, and hidden pockets outside for my subway card. The fringe is on a keyring so I can remove it when I get annoyed with it. Kind of excited for Fall now...

I love Jessica Simpson's tops, dresses and shoes. I found this Jessica Simpson top at Century 21. The front is solid grey, and the back is a sheer, creme, pleated back. This will look cute paired with skinny jeans, a long necklace and flats. 

I'm on a blazer kick, even in the summer, I like to wear them over dresses. This purple one caught my eye at Century 21. It's made by Vivienne Tam. It's a little bit thicker than my summer blazers, so I'm going to tuck it away for Fall. I love the detail of the button, very 'royal' looking. It actually looked pretty cute over the Jessica Simpson top. I can pair it with skinny jeans in the fall, or wear it over a dress and tights. 


Essie Splash of Grenadine

I've been on a huge Essie kick lately. Splash of Grenadine is a pretty light purple. I have to get my fill of summery colors before it's over!

Np2 Nail Polish set


Currently loving Np2 nail duos! Each tower of nail polish contains a gorgeous color coat and quick dry top coat. Genius idea. Top, base and color coat all in one stackable product.

I have Addiction on my nails in the below picture, which is a light pearly pink. I used the quick dry coat for a base, two coats of color, and then a clear coat for a top coat. It dried really quick, and I topped it off with some nail oil. This is a nice neutral color for work and travel. Color is going strong after 4 days, but may need to touch up tonight.

You can shop online at http://store.np2beauty.com/. They are priced at $22.50 a piece, which isn't bad for both a color and quick dry polish duo. You can break them apart and carry them separately too. These would make cute gifts. I'm already thinking about stocking stuffers. Or even bridal party gifts, and you can match the nail polish to the bridesmaids dresses!
