#NOTD: Cover Girl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss

Cover Girl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss Ever Reddy

Doing my nails is my relaxation ritual of choice, namely because waiting for them to dry forces me to sit still and do nothing for once. But sometimes a girl just needs to shed a chipped mani and re-paint her nails as quickly as possible, and for that, Cover Girl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss fits the bill very nicely indeed. I recently dipped into my sample stash by trying 'Ever Reddy' (a very pretty tomato red) and sharing a photo of the results on Instagram. I was so impressed I started moving on to other colours.

Latest Outfit: Camel Blazer & Birthday Thoughts

Fall weekend casual: Camel blazer, vintage Coach bag, Keds, skinny jeans, navy tee
Banana Republic blazer | J. Crew tee | Madewell jeans | Coach City bag | Keds sneakers | Ray-Ban shades (similar) | Nails: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant 175 'Ever Reddy'

I turned the big 3-0 last Thursday, but the day passed as uneventfully as any other. Between everything that's been going on lately and feeling under the weather, I was honestly very grateful for a night at home watching Bones on Netflix. If I've learned anything as I enter a new decade, it's that sometimes the simplest pleasures are the best ones, and the same can be said of one's wardrobe.

Pomellato, Please

Attention, lovers of artful bijoux: Milanese fine jewelry maker Pomellato has just opened its first Canadian standalone store in Vancouver's Pacific Centre. Despite Pomellato's little-known status in North America, the artisan-driven label has a huge following in Europe thanks to its winning combination of Old World craftsmanship, modern innovation, and warm organic shapes. No wonder Pomellato counts the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Sofia Coppola as fans! If you're planning to check out the Vancouver store, keep your eyes peeled for these pieces.

Bridal Style: Wedding Planning So Far

Don't worry, this blog won't turn into a Bridezilla-tainted place. But that being said, it has been 2 months since I announced our engagement, and when I'm not thinking about work or the blog or plans for next weekend, my attention is focused on planning our big day. I've got some fun wedding/bridal content in the works, which I'm kicking off with a status update on how our own nuptial planning is going. More details after the jump!
