Nail Inspiration: French Mani


Currently I keep seeing these fun twists on the classic French Manicure all over the internet. I love how creative and unique you can make your nails look with the different color combinations. I am always looking for new and fun ways to dress up my manicure and I think this is what I am going to be trying next!


I am not the best at painting my own nails but these dont seem too difficult. Just paint your nails one color and with a nail art pen or a steady hand paint a thin line at the end. 


There are so many ways to get creative with this new twist on the French Manicure, you can even alter the end length with a super chic and simple like like these nails!


Get Creative!

Its officially a week into 2014 and time is already flying! I don’t know what it is about this year but I have been more willing to make some New Years Resolutions than ever. I feel like for the first time in my life I can really feel like I’m getting older and I want to dedicate 2014 to focusing on myself and achieving things I’ve always wanted.

I thought I might share some of my resolutions with you all and I’ll keep updating with my progress on them! {maybe i’ll be more accountable ha!}

1. Read more! I used to read so many great books when I was younger just because I wanted to, not because it was an assigned reading. I wanted to focus this year on getting back into the habit of reading rather than sitting on the internet or watching TV with my free time. 


Currently I began the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. The first is A Discovery of Witches and I highly recommend reading it! I finished the whole book in a week I couldn’t put it down. Now I am on to  Shadow of the Night. If anyone wants to read along with me and discuss I would love to hear from you! I will also be continuously reading this year {hopefully} and I will post when I start and finish books if anyone wants to follow along!

2. Eat Healthier! This seems to be a reoccurring resolution but over the past months while I was away at school I was making the effort and was feeling amazing! Its time to get back into the swing of things after the holidays and get back on track with what I am putting into my body! 

3. Run/Do more Yoga! I love running and yoga and I have found myself getting caught up with school and life and not making time for activities I enjoy. Exercise is such a great stress relief and with everything I have on my plate coming up I know I will need it!  

4. Focus! I am notorious for taking on more than I can handle. All the while going through one task and I am already thinking about what I need to do for something else. This year I will try to aim my attention at one task at a time & live more in the present!

Well those are just a few of my many resolutions! I hope you all made some that you can stick with and change your life for the better.

Happy 2014 friends!
