5 Things: Baby Luxe

Okay, I don't know about you guys... but I don't remember having all this super cute stuff when I was a baby. I mean, a fuzzy lamb chair? My very own bouncer? Sure, I was the 2nd child and got a bunch of rad hand-me-down stuff that I loved... but we've really taken pampering and RUN with it. Seriously. Not sure if this revolution began after companies started marketing towards tweens... but good grief. There's some really stinkin' cute stuff for kids, and it's HARD not to spend all kinds of money spoiling my little Peanut. I've definitely had to learn to exercise restraint when it comes to that! That being said, here's some awesome baby stuff that's UBER cute and best of all... Peanut approved!

Peanut: The OFFICIAL Authority...

1 & 2: Layla Grayce has some of the cu-yoo-test stuff for babies. I swear, I could easily spend a small fortune on Peanut shopping on their site. I mean, just their collection of blabla dolls alone... She loves Pierre, and I'm sure she wouldn't mind if Momma brought some friends home for him!!!

Pierre & Peanut
More fuzzballs? Yes, Please! I mean, oui, s'il vous plait!

Quinny Buzz Stroller
This "personalized" girly stroller (Quinny Buzz)

3: I saw one of these strollers when we took 'lil Peanut to Christmas Candylane. The model we saw was gray and orange... not the greatest colors in the world... but a Quinny stroller? Little girl would totally love it, and I love how compactly it folds up. This stroller has a ton of add-ons. You can protect your little one from rain, wind, sun... Oh, and of course, add a cup holder for beverages! Quinny's stroller has 2 cup holders, one for a beverage, and the other for my car keys. And then I end up forgetting where I put them... Oo.  

Jungle Bouncer
A Bouncing Paradise

4: This bouncer has sooooo much going on that it's ridiculous! Peanut loves to bounce, whether she's in her bouncer, or you're holding her. She sometimes tries to bounce while she's having her bottle, but we try to put a stop to that pretty quickly. Eventually she'll catch on that bouncing and eating do NOT go together!

Snuggamonkey
Snuggalamb and Snuggabunny... meet Snuggamonkey!

5: Okay... so, my Peanutty-Buddy has and loves her little lamby chair... but Fisher-Price must've overheard my musings that the Snuggalamb should've been a black sheep... you know! So, how appropriate is the new Snuggamonkey line? Not to mention incredibly cute!!! If you're torn between Lamb, Bunny, or Monkey... go with this one. They all have removable and washable pads... but the choice here is pretty obvious. Monkey is so much more practical, not to mention boy AND girl friendly!

What's your must-have baby item that you didn't have when you were a kid*?

*For the record, I'd go with Lamby HANDS DOWN. It's been so great as another "station" for Peanut, and it provides an upright sleeping position for your little one when they have a cough or the sniffles.

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.

Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit. 
Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times. 
This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter.
