"it's a beautiful night"

I wanted to paint my nails a beautiful shade of green. Then I thought of this whole ombre nail color thing that seems to be increasing in popularity. At the very least, increasing in popularity on my list of things I like. So I watch a couple youtube videos, studied a couple of pictures and produced my own personal ombre nails.

Unfortunately, I don't think I really have the right to call them ombre nails because I kinda failed epicly. I guess it really does matter what kind of polish you use. I seemed to only get one different shade and then it just refused to get any lighter. But I'm going to keep trying. I have many colors to practice this technique on. And then maybe later I can try a new style. Oh, side note, I swear that hand in the first picture, with the orange/pink shade nails, belongs to Sumatra. Please confirm.

I'll need to perfect it in time for the big event I'm attending in 3 weeks. My best friend in getting married! I'm so excited for her! But more importantly, I'm excited that I get to go to my first wedding where I actually personally know the bride and groom.

What should I wear (I don't want to upstage the bride, you know)? What gift should I bring? I want to bring something actually useful. That means no toasters or other kitchen appliances, right? I'll have to really think about this one. I can't wait to see her again. It's too bad the trip is going to be really short. I'm only able to stay the weekend, but I'll make sure it's a super fun weekend! Congrats Babycakes, I'm really happy for you!

vintage party

Well goodbye April. It was lovely while it lasted. As sorry as I am to see April go, I am just slightly a bit glad that it's May. That's one month closer to summer, which means I get a new wardrobe! I've spent a little time researching new styles. I'm looking into different era type clothing. But I'm still trying to figure out what my style will be.

The Salon is throwing a vintage party and I'm expected to wear vintage clothing. The main problem: I don't have any vintage clothing and I certainly don't know how to shop for vintage. So I've been doing a lot of Google searching into vintage clothing in order to put something together. Apparently, skipping this party is not an option for me. But I really couldn't even identify vintage if it was staring me in the face. I have no clue what I'm going to do.
