Day 360: Twelve.ThirtyOne.13

I really enjoy getting my nails done. The gel polish kind. I’m terrible at doing my own nails, and impatient, often impulsive, and not particularly dainty about my everyday life, so the gel thing just works. For weeks at a time.

It’s terrible for me and the environment and there are other things I could be spending my money on I know.

Today I tried my hand at recreating the last look I had done – one sparkly finger on each hand. Still left over from my Nutcracker days, this vile of craft glitter has come in handy on many an occasion.

Happy + Sparkles + All that good stuff

Day 161: Six.Fifteen.13

I am a firm believer that true beauty comes from within.

But sometimes. Sometimes, there’s something to be said for a small external beauty update to get your inside beauty believing in itself again. In my case, some highlights and a cut did the trick. I feel like a whole new woman. As my beyond-fantastic stylist told me, I’m now ready to take on the world…

Ladies (and gentleman), if you need an updated look, call Aveda Bethesda Salon & Spa and make an appointment with Ricardo Lopez. Stat. He’s a true artist.
