Magnetic Pretty

9 Apr

Over the weekend, I was perusing Sephora with none other than my right hand fashion woman (Chelsea) because I had a gift card to spend there.  We stumbled upon this AWESOME nail polish that I’d never seen before.  I’d heard of it but wasn’t exactly sure what it was.  We were testing it out and when we realized how easy it was to use, I was instantly hooked.  It’s a great way of giving yourself a quick manicure that looks like you spent lots of time perfecting.  It’s kind of expensive at about $18 a bottle but I figure there has to be at least 25 coats in the bottle.  They have about 7-10 different colors in the Nails Inc brand that I bought (I got turquoise) but I’m sure there are other brands that will start coming out with this for cheaper.  You paint the coat on your nails, which I only needed one, and then flip the lid of the bottle over to hover over the freshly painted nail.  The magnet pull the paint in different directions to give the polish the fun texture.

I’m not the best at manicuring myself but you can see more what it looks like here.

In the sun, it gets even a little brighter.  You can also hold the magnet over the nails for as short or long as you want creating different definitions in the lines.

The bottle that I got and love.

I hope everyone had a GREAT Easter weekend!  I spent lots of time with family, baking and with the horses – I know all of this is shocking, right? 🙂

What a crazy week it has been!  I’ve been so busy just trying to accomplish everything before I head to Coachella next weekend and time has been flying faster than ever.  I can’t wait for it to slow back down over the weekend.  Some great news though, I won the LITTER contest!!!  I’m so so so excited about it and want to thank you if you helped me get there 🙂  I can’t wait to share it all on my blog!  Until then, here’s some of my “insta-life” lately.  Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

While watching one of my absolute favorite shows, Shark Tank (thanks to my dad and Vicki for showing me this awesome show), I fell in love with one of the contestants products and the creators/designers are from San Francisco!!  I had to blog about the amazing-ness of these women.  They create unique body jewelry made from scrap chain pieces and the company is called Litter.  (All images below are from their website)

They are so creative and make some of the most unique pieces I’ve ever seen.  I’m so proud to say that such awesome designers are from right here in San Francisco!

Here are some of my favorite pieces from their collections:

So elegant and beautiful.

Also, I’m trying to win some of their AMAZING jewelry and need your help.  I’ve posted a photo on their Facebook page with an outfit and the piece I want to wear to Coachella.  If it gets enough ‘likes’ they will send some of their amazing pieces my way!  Can you help me get likes?  Thank you so much and definitely check out their AMAZING jewelry!  You can also become my friend on facebook as well : )  I haven’t had time to add the widgets yet to my home page but I’ll try to do so soon.  Have a great day!

Mavericks sunset

3 Apr

The sunset last Saturday night in Half Moon Bay was beyond beautiful.  With the clouds starting to roll in, we caught some beautiful colors.

Mavericks Festival, the Expendables, and Sunshine

2 Apr

This past Saturday, Mavericks held an event to honor the massive wave event that usually has already happened by this time of year.  However, they could not ever lock down a day to get the surfers to charge for a contest.  There were still surfers who I’m sure were out there catching waves this past winter but there wasn’t an actual contest held.  Surprisingly, we had some sun and a nice day of music and friends.  It was down pouring everywhere else but somehow along the Hwy1 coast line, we had some of the most beautiful weather.

Kite boarders everywhere!

The Expendables playing.

This is just hilarious.

Little kids just loving the music : )

Hanging in the awesome Red Bull truck that our friend takes all over the place to different events.

Cute gamers 🙂

GoPro was also there giving out a few GoPros!  Pretty awesome.

I love my friends.
