Mani vs. Pedi

Mani vs Pedi

Why oh why does my nail polish on my manicure chip after wearing it for about 2 days, MAX?!? I can have the exact same polish, base coat, top coat, etc on my pedicure and it would literally last for months (if I didn't change it out of boredom and wouldn't that be bad hygiene?). What's the deal? Some obvious answers might be "because you wash your hands", "because your hands are exposed and your feet are not", "because you use your hands more". To this I say nay! Umm, hello, I wash my feet too!! Eiww. I certainly USE my feet. I'm guessing more than I use my hands. I mean, I walk on them at the very least. If you know me you also know that my feet are literally ALWAYS exposed well in the summer. My poor tootsies are jammed into a five inch platform heel with a toe box that feels like my shoe is about 8 sizes too small. I was recently in NY and walked around in my heels for one evening and think I have a broken foot now : where I live just across the bridge we are normally

driving around. So, if any of my digits are being abused, I say it's my toes! Thus my perplextion.

Shine on!!

*NOTE* For do-it-yourself, the best polish is Channel, who originated Vamp. Remember Vamp?! Then Essie followed with Vixen. Channel nail polish costs between $18 and $30 usd, depending on where you buy it. You should only keep a bottle of nail polish for one month.

Do I Love For The Right Reasons!

Do I Love For The Right Reasons!!

Years ago, I overheard the following conversation: A girl was talking to her friend about her relationship and she said: 'I love him, but... Do I love him for the right reasons?' At that moment, I wasn't quite sure what she meant by that. Let this not be a surprise friends, many times I have heard friends or just conversations questioning if they are in their relationship for the right reasons.

A close friend confessed to me that her marriage was going through a rocky time. I got extremely sad as I love to see my friends happy. After listening to her story, I asked her what made her fall in love with her husband in the first place. When she gave me her honest answer, I instantly recalled that conversation from the past and got to understand!

This whole situation also brought to my mind an episode of one of reality shows, 'Giuliana and Bill.' Giuliana revealed that what she liked the most about Bill Rancic from Day 1 was that he could make a 'great husband and a great father.' I guess that, we really have to ask to ourselves why we love the person we love. Are the answers that we give to ourselves in real time, the prophecy of what the relationship may become?

I admire my parents, for they have been married for 40 years. If you can make your relationship work because the love still exist, then go for it friends. Make happy a priority.

Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie, On the cover of Ocean Drive

I love Nicole Richie looks for her shoot with Ocean Drive Magazine! She did a 360 didn’t she? I remember her reality show The Simple Life on E! with Paris Hilton and now she has blossomed into a mom and fashion designer! Her line is called, House of Harlow. She is definitely channeling the 70′s and I’m loving the heel-less shoes, fiya! Some of Nicole’s designers are black Dolce Gabanna jacket & skirt, black sling-backs & blue Guiseppe Zanotti heels from the Spring 2012 collection,pink Roksand Illncic dress.
Here’s an excerpt:
Knowing the pitfalls celebrity offspring face, Richie admits she hasn’t “gone there,” speculating on how her own children might fare with second-hand fame. For now, she’s enjoying the wonders of watching her kids reveal themselves in her family’s private world. “It’s very interesting to see who they are, and I’m all about encouraging them to just be themselves,” she says. “I’m not at a place yet where I’m trying to work on who they are. I’m all about them just developing exactly what they want to be, and enjoying everything about that.” Appropriate words, it seems, from someone who’s learned firsthand about the power of enjoying the journey, and making sure it took her somewhere.
