watermelon manicure

Plenty of people have done it before, but I thought it’d be fun to do a watermelon-like manicure for summer:

Juicy fun, right?

regina george presents: a Mean Girls birthday party

My birthday was on April 25, but because it fell on the Monday after Easter weekend, I decided to have my party yesterday. This turned out to be a pretty great decision because instead of it being gross any rainy like the last, oh, I don’t know… 5 years?, it was springy and 69° here in Chicago. Unbelievable!

Also a great decision? I decided to make my party Mean Girls-themed. Yes, theme parties can be cheesy, but I think they’re fun, and I knew my friends would too.

So of course I had to dress in my best Queen Bee Regina George ensemble:

A little bit dramatic – who, me?

office diva

I feel like I’m a little overdressed today, sort of. But I sort of don’t care. It’s still entirely office-appropriate, if flashy.

And sometimes you need some sparkle to make it through the week, am I right?

show your PRIDE!

It’s Pride weekend here in Chicago! My plans fell through last time around, so I’m excited to finally participate in the festivities this year. I’m not sure yet what to wear to the parade tomorrow, but I knew I wanted to do my nails up all rainbow bright!

So it’s not a true Roy G. Biv rainbow, but it’s close enough. Details ahead…

my LOST finale look

Well, the day has come.

4 8 15 16 May 23 42

And here is my look for the LOST finale tonight:

Black liner for Richard, freckles for Kate and Sawyer, sorta messy blonde hair for Claire and Juliet, a heart necklace for Sun & Jin (and a watch for Jin as well), a tee for Locke, a message from Charlie, and a tiny optimistic smile for Hurley. Don’t worry, I will be jearsing later for Jack.

grey & green

Have been feeling under the weather lately with a nasty cough – “I think I’ve got the black lung, pop” – so I took a sick day yesterday to rest. I think it helped! But sadly it was a genuine sick day, and I did not get to enjoy the lovely weather.

Today, however – different story: I get to enjoy the sunny, beautiful day, YAY!

You’ve seen this before (with a turtleneck under it), but I thought it couldn’t hurt to post just the dress, by Simply Vera (size 8). I kinda said everything I love about this dress in that previous post, so you should go ahead and click it if you care.

owl be yours

Is this not the cutest thing? Owls are crazy trendy right now, and I happen to love them, so I am 100% on board. (That’s Sally Hansen Commander in Chic on my nails again, btw.)
