Happy Birthday... To Me!

Hey guys!

Monday was my birthday. I don’t have anything against aging per se but I must admit that turning 27 is so strange to me. I was still adjusting to being 26 so what the hell am I supposed to do now? lol Well who ever said that “you’re only as old as you feel” wasn’t lying because I don’t feel my age at all, but I guess that’s a good thing.

Today I’ll be showing you my birthday mani. This one is special to me because it was a gift from Jon. It’s a very popular polish that has been on my mental wish list for a while but I just couldn’t find a way to justify buying, what I consider to be, a pretty expensive polish.

Deborah Lippmann’s Glitter In The Air aka GITA. You’ve seen it. And if you’re a lacquer junkie like me then you’ve spent many nights googling swatches of it online. I absolutely love this polish. I have been wearing it for four days straight. You read that right. FOUR DAYS STRAIGHT (with no chipping might I add). If you’ve been following my blog then you know that that is a long time for me. This polish is very sheer so I started with a coat of China Glaze’s Sea Spray (a light bluish grey) and then added a couple coats of GITA. Ahhhh Perfection. The only bad thing about this polish is that you kinda have to shift the glitter around the nail so that everything looks balanced.

Love it! 

Okay the second thing I want to show you is one of the gifts I received from my baby sister Mims (not her actual name lol). I did receive more than one gift but out of all the things she gave me, this one was my fav. I have never been a label whore however I do enjoy high end products. My only problem is the guilt that I feel once I’ve made my  purchase! So you can only imagine how giddy I was when Mims hands me a Coach bag. I open the box and inside is the cutest wristlet. It’s so handy and cute. I love it (but I love you more sorella! xox)

Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and made the day special for me.

‘Til next time!
