A Crewed Interest

Essie - A Crewed Interest

Here's something I haven't done for awhile - a muted, more subtle nail polish color. Lately I've been sporting bright, sometimes nearly neon colors, but this is a pleasant change. Don't get me wrong... I still love my bright and cheery polishes and won't be getting rid of them any time soon! But this pretty Essie color might be one of my new favorites.

(Preeeetty sure I say that about every new color I get my hands on.)

With a Hint of Mint

This is my first humble attempt at an outfit post. I've been stalking countless fashion blogs lately, and I decided I would jump on the bandwagon and give it a try myself. Hubby isn't feeling well, so I took these with either a tripod or my awkwardly outstretched arm. Not ideal.

Oh, tripod, you are so funny.

Top: Target
Jeans: Old Navy
Sandals: Madden Girl
Necklace: my own design
Fingernail color: Mint Candy Apple by Essie
Toenail color: Tart Deco by Essie

Chalkboard Verse

I recently saw this pin on Pinterest and thought it was so pretty that it needed to be recreated on my chalkboard.

That is all. :) Happy Monday to you!

"The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still."

Four Things

Learning how to make a fishtail braid,

new wedges for spring (which I can't wear... because it's snowing. Seriously?)

liquid eyeliner, a new staple in my makeup routine,

and sweet roasted red pepper hummus, my new obsession. I think you could eat this with a piece of cardboard and it would still taste good... I prefer crackers though.

I've put the finishing touches on the packaging for my Etsy shop! Each piece of jewelry will come nestled in a simple kraft gift bag, sweetly tied up with striped bakers twine and a Nestled tag.

My favorite detail is the bakers twine. Check out the massive two pound spool I have!

I think it's safe to say I have enough of it to last me a lifetime. Or two.

Nestled is now on Etsy!

That's right! I opened my Etsy shop over the weekend! Click the logo below to check it out:

Right now I'm featuring a small collection of necklaces I've made. I eventually want to try my hand at making earrings too. I have some great ideas floating around in my head that I can't wait to try out. Please browse around the shop and let me know what you think! (And "like" me on Facebook!)
