My Favorite Essie Colors For Summertime!

It’s no lie when I say I’m addicted to nail polish..especially Essie. I have over 200 bottles of nail polish, which may seem weird..but to me it’s like having my own salon in my bedroom! My favorite season for nail polish colors is summertime. It makes my fingers feel so bright and happy..very reassuring (crazy to think that nail polish could make someone feel that way–but it does).

I am going to admit that I was very shocked to see how dark Essie’s Summer 2014 collection was..granted they just did the Neon 2014 collection which I ADORE, but the one thing that drives me crazy about the neons is having to put the white under it. I love wearing white alone though!  Anyways, I loved two of the colors for summer out of the collection..the rest reminded me of fall!

So I figured I’d share with y’all my personal favorites to wear on my fingers and toes during summer

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

mothers day
Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I know my family has plans to go to brunch and sit outside and watch the boats go in and out of the inlet! My Mom has been my best friend for 21 years, my twin, and the one who is always there when I need her, so she deserves the best (every Mother does). I live in a town where citrus, real estate and the beach are a big part of our lives. So, when I saw some of these citrus inspired items I knew they would be perfect for Mother’s Day, especially in my family!
There are only have a few days left to shop so try something that you usually don’t do. Surprise her for once, instead of giving her the basic mani/pedi and massage combo, which my brother and I are guilty of doing.
and remember, Mother’s Day is ALL about HER!

I love you, Mom!

I’ve told y’all before and I will tell y’all again..I absolutely adore a comfy dress! This chevron dress has been in my closet for a few years and I still love it. It’s perfect to put on whenever you are in the mood to be comfortable and you can easily dress it up or down! I dressed it up here because I was in a fancy mood plus I was dying to wear my new Nine West heels! Happy Monday!

spring break must haves

(balm)  (bronzer) ball cap )
I am in love with each one of these springy items but the one thing I left out are a pair of cowboy boots. They just weren’t going with the theme but I will be in them more than I will be in a bikini! For Spring Break I’m headed home (actually I’m already home, I started my trip early) and all I plan on doing is relaxing, tanning, blogging and spending lots of time with my horse, Scout! Day 1 consisted of a bad sunburn, macaroons, and some much needed Scout time! For a better look at what I am doing follow me on Instagram!

|top: piperlime, similar| jeans: jbrand | clutch: gigi new york | bangles: bourbon & boweties | necklace: soca | sunglasses: ray-ban | shoes: steve madden | lips: stila amore | nails: essie blanc |

To me, a classic look stands out more than one that screams for attention. This nude vegan leather top gave me the right amount of simplicity but still says I have good taste!  And once again, another green item to add in my closet, and of course, it’s  Gigi New York!

Hope y’all are enjoying my new set up!

It’s time for me to start preparing for Spring Break, and if you haven’t noticed I have a thing for green bags! I’ve been using Jergen’s Natural Glow every other day to build up my tan and it really does work, I’m not lying! Mac’s Candy Yum Yum lipstick is a must pink for spring, and will be on my lips! I will also be wearing Essie Blanc on my fingers and Bikini So Teeny on my toes, with a great pair of wedges or sandals!
Happy Spring Break Season!

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of cork and Kate Spade New York’s Cork Keds are beyond adorable. I’ve decided that I need a pair for myself, but I was curious if they are a true fit or not! Mint was a big hit last year for spring and it is making a come back again this spring. I can’t get enough of Essie’s Mint Candy Apple it’s a great transition color from winter to spring!  These are just a few of my favorite mint + cork goodies!

What’s in my suitcase for NYC?

I Love New York
I am so excited to go to New York City next weekend for the ENK International Coterie Fashion Market. I am going for a boutique back at home (Vero Beach, FL) called Sassy Boutique! Sassy has been around since as long as I have and it is hands down my favorite store at home, not to mention the owner Deana Marchant, is like my second mother! I get everything I need from there whether it’s a formal dress, jeans, or shoes. Sassy has it! I am also so excited to see my Mom, Deana, and my friend Grace! It has been over a month since I last saw them and I couldn’t be more thrilled. This Alabama girl is headed north, but bringing the south with her! Be on the lookout for my post while I’m in the Big Apple! Also, follow my Instagram shotgunsandseashells to get the most recent updates of our trip!
