Links A La Mode

Wanted: Wardrobe

Edited by: Sonia of In Pursuit of Style
Something about the change in weather that makes me want bright colors, fabulous new clothes and fancy new shoes. This happens every year, as excitement builds with peep toes, sleeveless tops and flowing skirts aplenty. I’ve been feeling uninspired lately, but this week’s blogger submissions have me excited again. We have some showing us how to make old things new again, trends in different iterations and best of all, at a great price! Maybe I can go out a buy that new wardrobe after all...

Bored on Friday... So I Did My Nails!

I have been dying to blog all week, but alas, my life has been busy! My husband just stepped out so I thought it would be a good time to at least post something!
Nothing to do on a Friday night, so I did my nails. I haven't had money to get a manicure in I don't know how long. And the nail polish jobs I do just weren't cutting it. My friend got the new IMPRESS nails by BROADWAY NAILS. I saw them and I had to try them out. I busted ass all week in my sisters shop so I could get a pair, and finally! PAYDAY! and I got a pair.
Impress Press-On Manicure

I really like them! So far so good! I will be sure to report back if the end up not lasting the week they promise. The nails were only $7.99. You get 24 nails, you can probably squeeze two sets out of them, as long as you don't have too strange of hands! Either way they seem worth it. Easy to put on, and they look great. They have a sort of flex to them as well. Thanks to my BFF, Tori, for the inspiring self manicure.

Must Have Bag! Cute Bloom Bag by the pleated poppy!

The Pleated Poppy
I have been a fan of the pleated poppy for a while and I love her stuff! If you can't tell already from my blog, I am a HUGE fan of local business and handmade items. I am all for bringing trade jobs back to human hands. To me, products have a better quality when you know they were made by someone who is putting love into them and actually cares about the product they put out into the world! (and into my closet! ;) )

Not only is the pleated poppy's shop full of goodies, but her blog is oh so CUTE! I am a fan of {WIWW} (what I wore Wednesday) but I have never submitted a comment... to shy! ;)
Anyway, back to this fabu bag that I MUST HAVE! Never fear, I have already alerted the husband of the purchase he is making for my birthday! LOL
this bloom bag features: 
- measures ~16" x 20" 
- durable canvas exterior 
- double handles/straps 
- 2 open interior pockets 
- 1 zippered interior pocket 
- embellishes with double ruffles and 3 monster posies

Swing by and give some love to The Pleated Poppy!
