Monday Notes

We had a good weekend. I mean, good -- but not incredibly exciting or anything. Saturday night we did have dinner out at Brio with some of my family members which was nice (and their gorgonzola beef medallions are a delicious menu choice!) but other than that, it was filled with normal family-type stuff. 

I did get time to freshen up my toesies, and used one of my very favorite Essie shades. The perfect fuschia with a little iridescent sheen. This color always reminds me of my college bestie Ashley that lives down in Miami now :) And not even for the name of the shade! 

Essie - Miami Nice ($8.50 here)
Essie - Gel Setter ($9.99 here)

I cleaned my nice jewelry this weekend which got me out of the rut of wearing my diamond stud earrings on the daily. I'm in love with these turquoise KS earrings and I wore them all day Sunday. Minus a few earring grabs by Baby Charlotte, they were comfortable to wear all day long. That's why I like KS earrings ... they definitely make a bold statement but without the heft. Nothing is more uncomfy than earrings that tug your lobes down, ouch!

Kendra Scott - Alex Earrings ($55 here)

Lastly, our home has been smelling wonderful recently thanks to my new Voluspa candle. I picked mine up from Nordstrom. When the sale goes live to the public on Friday, I am going to pick up this trio of candles because the price is awesome. I paid $16 for mine just for reference, and you can now pick up a 3-pack for $29.50.

Two Wick Candles ($29.50 here) - this is the size I have and love.
Mini Candles ($15.90 here) - I have also owned this size and it's perfect for stocking stuffers


  1. Have you ever tried the voluspa candle in pink citron? Divine!

  2. I love that pink color! So summery and pretty! I have actually never tried Essie's nail polish! I need to!

  3. The gel setter coat is a must for me - makes the polish last so much longer!

  4. I just thought you should know you have cute feet! I really can't take it when people post feet picks and they have cracky toes . . . is that wrong?! LOL

  5. Brio is my mom's favorite restaurant to eat at when she visits Charlotte- and that's where my graduation dinner was! Always a great choice. :-) And this post reminds me I need to do my toes!!

  6. I love that Essie color... so summery and fun! Also, those earrings are adorable!

  7. I'm so guilty of never wearing my earrings just my diamond studs too. Like ever..

  8. I love that polish color & those earrings are adorable. I never wear dangly earrings cuz I hate the heaviness but they are so pretty.
