DIY Mermaid Nails

I've been promising you guys a new makeup tutorial, and here it is - a beautiful DIY mermaid mani! It's so perfect for Summer, and I promise you, it's quite easy to do. I was so inspired by the samples I recently received from Nail Social Nail Brand. I have to say, when I first saw the colors, I knew they were a little bit out of my typical comfort zone. Honestly, I haven't worn sparkly blue nail polish since college, which was quite a while ago for me. For years I've stuck with pinks, reds, and purples; with the most adventurous of my manis being hot pink (and only when hot pink was very on-trend). None the less, I was ready to try this "24K Mermaid" polish. Objectively speaking, as blue sparkly nail polishes go, it was pretty after all.

It was beautiful on, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that under different lighting it went from a true blue to a sparkly greenish blue that looked even more...mermaid-ish if you ask me. When it came time to take i…

Hotel Luxury at Home


If you've been following along on the blog this year, you know how much my husband and I like to get away for a night here and there. We pick a local hotel and have a mini stay-cation, away from home. These little getaways provide time away from chores, bills, kids, and pets; so we can relax and just enjoy time with each other.

With each hotel stay, my husband and I have noticed that we tend to enjoy the same elements of luxury no matter which place we're at. Things like fluffy white towels, black-out shades, in-room coffee, a nice shower head, and of course those little bottles of shampoo.

But what really makes our stays feel luxurious and relaxing are the beds. They all have these things in common - a soft pillow top on the mattress, several king-size down pillows, and a fluffy white duvet (perfect for a #goodmorning Instagram). It's an amazing way to relax and get a good night's sleep. It's an even more amazing way to enjoy the next morning, in bed with some magazines and coffee and of course some extra time to snuggle in peace and quiet.

After our last hotel stay, I was thinking and turned to Ken and said, "You know, some of the things we love most about all of these hotels are things we could recreate at home with the right products." Things like the black-out curtain panels, for example, would make it easier for us to sleep in if we wanted to on the weekends. Some upgraded towels and those terry cloth bath mats would elevate our master bath. And top on my list was a quality duvet...more specifically, a white one. It looks clean and crisp and instantly gives off a hotel vibe.






The one pictured here is courtesy of Serena & Lily, and it's perfect. The links design adds just enough interest and comes in several different shades. Ken and I went with the "French Blue" Savoy Embroidered Duvet Cover. They just happened to be having a sale on all of their bedding through June 15th.

  1. Black out panels would definitely come in handy.
