Fashion Friday – Fall, Finally!

It’s finally Fall in San Diego!!  We’ve had colder weather in the evenings, with rain some mornings, and sunshine in the afternoons.  Navigating these temperature changes throughout the day means wearing layers…and apparently mixed prints.  There will be a time during the day when I’m out in direct sunlight, and a striped tank with jeans will do.  But from the morning when I don’t need my coat, to the evening when I’m out at the soccer field and NEED it, I’ll know that I’m prepared for the day.  And when I say “NEED” it’s because it’s below 65 degrees.  I know, it’s just one of those problems about living in Southern California, we freeze at higher temperatures.  Oh, and yes, my jeans are pegged…a little throwback from my youth.  The mixed prints are just a fun way to add some personal style!  Have a fabulous weekend!!

Manicure Monday – Hostess Exclusives

AugustHostessExclusiveJamberry Nails August Hostess Exclusive

I personally believe that some of the best Jamberry Nail wraps are the Hostess Exclusives and Sister Style Exclusives!  And this month I am combining both as an incentive for all my future hostesses!

If you host a party (in-home local to me or on Facebook) this month or next, you will be entered in a drawing to get this month’s Sister Style Exclusive FREE!!

SSEOct. SSEOct1 October’s SSE is by far my favorite month with its multiple designs on one sheet.  And, I just love the faded fringe!  Can you picture your harvest manicure now?  What about using the design as an accent nail and pairing it with Jamberry’s Sweet Sangria nail lacquer?

Not only will my hostesses be entered into this FREE giveaway, but they always receive amazing rewards from Jamberry!!  The hostess package is truly amazing, and super generous.


Contact me to book a date as a hostess  for October or November, and I’ll personally gift you with a special catalog item.  All my previous hosts know that I love to spoil my hostesses.  I’m thankful to have met many of them, and have even formed some great friendships!!  Jamberry has been such a blessing to me, and definitely become more than just a hobby.

Can’t wait to hear from you!

Happy Harvest!


As we begin the new month of October, I’m thankful for the change of season…and hopefully a change in the weather.  Here in Southern California we are in need of water!  Every year around this time my family has a tradition of heading out to Julian for apple and pear picking.  We also look forward to spending this time with friends, as we have gone with the same two families for the past 3 years!  This year, we thought we were going early in the season, only to find that there weren’t too many apples to pick.  Our warm spring may have caused the fruit to ripen early.  Truthfully, it isn’t all about the apples or the pears, it’s about the experience and the time spent together.  


Our favorite orchards to pick are Apple Starr Orchard and O’Dell’s Organic Orchard.  Both of these orchards are organic and within walking distance of each other.  O’Dell’s also has chickens and goats, which is always a real hit with the kids.





We wish you and your family a happy harvest, with many sweet memories, because it truly is about the welcoming of a new season and the Lord’s faithfulness and mercy!

“And while the earth remains, there will be seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22

Manicure Monday – Bold In Color: StyleBox by Jamberry

Sept2014StyleBoxJamberry Nails StyleBox Exclusive September and Tribal Vibrance (past Sister Style Exclusive)

This month’s StyleBox Exclusive is a great orchid ombre!  A vibrant design that pairs nicely with multiple combinations depending on your personal style.  I put my own spin to this design by bringing in a Southwest influence that helps me incorporate more fall colors into my wardrobe.  We may not get a change of seasons here in Southern California, but I love the warm hues of Autumn!

StyleBoxSept2014The Happy-Go-Lucky design accompanied the StyleBox Exclusive wrap, and I’m saving that for a future post!
