A Marbel Marvel

I haven't done a Mani Monday in so long! Mostly because I rarely have much time to mess with my nails. I hardly have enough time to sit in a nail salon. Uh hate it! Ants in my pants! Anyway since I'm a DIY kinda girl I thought I would share this very festive nail art post. Disclaimer: I am so not a nail artist, I'm just looking to switch up my "norm". I'm usually all red all day all the time. So for this gloomy monday I am sharing how to do the marble nail look. Valentines Day is just around the corner so this could be your go to vday look. 

This is a super easy and fast look. For the marbled look all you do is pick your base color and your second color. Polish your nail with your first color, do two coats, let dry, and then do dots on the top of your nail. Let it sit for a bit, and then drag a toothpick through your dots until you reach your desired marble look. Play with colors to see which you like best. 

I love messing with nails because they can so easily be changed. It's fun to dabble with different. Have a wonderful Monday!  


Nailed It

This has been a busy week thus far and I haven't quite been able to get back on my normal manicure schedule. I really needed to get some color on my nails so I decided to give good 'ol Sally Hanson a try with their no light gel manicure.

First, I'm in love with this shade called "Red Eye"(duh).  Second, the coats dry really fast which is what I need no matter what.  Totally have ants in my pants at all times. But lastly, Sally Hanson, it does not last 14 days. I would say a tad longer than normal polish. 

Moral of the story? It's a nice longer lasting polish that is quite perfect when you are in a rush or in between mani's.

Remember Ladies, you are only helpless when your nails are drying.



Fast Tip: the best time to do your at home mani is right after you shower because your cuticles are softer. 

June Favorite's

Is there anything better than being outside in the warmth of the sun, feeling the grass under your feet? I think not. I mean as long as that's close to a patio and all. I am so excited that summer is finally and actually here. June is just wizzing by so I thought it was a great time to share the things that I have just been loving.

Clearly I'm loving pants, haha. If you look at fashion right now nothing is too tight. Looser pants are what is on trend right now and I couldn't be happier about that. Why? Because I think it's a very fresh and exciting change. The blue pair is my favorite workout gear called Fabletics by Kate Hudson. Honestly, as I've said, the quality is amazing. These pants are one of my favorites, they are soft and the color is great. 

Now for the books. I have such a deep passion for being in the kitchen as I am sure you know by now. The cookbook "Skinny Taste" was given to me as a gift at Christmas and I absolutely love it. I can't wait to share my latest recipe from it with you. Next up, DVF's new book. Also a gift and even though I am only at the beginning as of now I am loving it! And her of course. More on that later, stay tuned.

Fast Tip Tuesday will be all about these two of my favorite faux tanning products. Seriously I have used them for years and years...and years. I get so many compliments on my tan daily. "And where did you just get back from?" is a common question. Amazing products and I know I've talked about them before but it's worth another post in my opinion. 

How about that Vino? MK and I are obsessed with Spanish wines and this one is one of my go-to's. Love! It's a dry red and yum! Next time you're in the wine isle and don't know what to get snatch this one up! If you like dry reds you'll like this.

White shoes because summer. 

Also July 1st is the Glossy Box review and man it was a good one! Can't wait to share! 


This is an obvious favorite not pictured above. My red nails! It's Mani Monday again and since I just had them done I had to share. A lovely girl named Jade did them and I had to ask her the name of the color I chose because as you see, naming nail polish is my ultimate dream job. When sweet Jade said "Was I Going That Fast?" was the name I just cracked up! How perfect is that?!  Pretty perfect for The Fast Fashionista. Anywho I hope your Monday involves nice nails, Starbucks, and a whole lot of happy. 

Have a wonderful week! Xoxo!
