Happy Birthday Cara and Emily!

I celebrate my dogs' birthdays on August 11 every year, and this year Cara is approximately 10 and Emily is around 6!  When we adopted our dogs from the shelter, they were both around 6 months old (and we adopted both during January - of different years).  For their birthday, we gave them fun new toys (hedgehogs!), some treats, new beds, and we baked them a dog-friendly cake.  We love these dogs so much!!

Oasap Dresses

I am so excited to show you my new dresses from Oasap!!  I originally found this website when I was looking for bridesmaids' dresses, but then  I started shopping for me and fell in love with a few things myself.

First of all is the Contrast Yoke Chiffon Dress: Oasap.  This dress is SO cute and a serious steal.  The dress is a beautiful pale green with a cinched waist and a white belt (to match the white top).  The pleating is really nice because it actually changes to wider pleats about a foot from the bottom, giving it great movement.  This dress is really beautiful.  I love it!

The second dress was the Crocheted Yoke Pleated Dress with Belt: Oasap.  This one wasn't as cute on me; it is a circle dress so it cinches with the belt, but overall I wish I had ordered one size down.  The lace detail on the top is GORGEOUS.  It is so delicate and beautiful.  Plus, the color is great!

Ordering from Oasap was fast and easy.  Everything arrived within about one week, and it was packaged nicely.  Learn more at

Polka Dot Party!!

I LOVE polka dots!!  They are just too cute.  I own so many polka dot shirts; last semester, I realized I wore a different polka dot shirt every day one week - unintentionally!  But polka dot nails?  Hardly ever!  

For this mani, I knew I wanted a nice, bright white.  I dug all those my polish bins - I was desperately hunting China Glaze Snow (which appears to be mysteriously missing...); I tried a few similar shades, but then I remembered the new Neon collection from OPI - Neon Revolution!  I haven't mixed them in with my polishes in the bins because I like to keep the minis in their boxes.  

I am loving this off-center polka dot mani!!

Two coats of OPI White Base with dots in OPI If You Moust You Moust and China Glaze OMG (both are favorites of mine), with Seche Vite on top.
