The New Nail Length and Shape That Anyone Can Wear

La Perla Butter London Fall 2013


Despite the heartburn, headaches, leg cramps, and the accidental sneeze/pee combo, pregnancy does have some positive benefits on me physically. My hair has gotten thicker and my nails grow at a rapid rate.

I figured I’d take advantage of my longer nails and try a new shape and length. Usually they are really short and round-square shape. Practical, clean, and modern.

But I’m feeling sassy in this last trimester of pregnancy and while I’m scared of the Rihanna stilleto nail, there’s a modified  more wearable version that’s been seen on the Fall 2013 runways.

Here is some my inspiration photos.

Renee’s Products of the Week 2.23.13

Products of the week feb

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a super busy weekend filled with family functions—this is the start of my “busy” season! Weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, graduations, birthday parties….it won’t slow down again till about September!

Even with my crazy schedule, I still take the time to try out new products. Here are a few of my recent favorites (l to r):

Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara: This mascara is on the pricey side ($28), but it’s worth the splurge. It does everything from volumize to lengthen in just one coat.

Eos Lip Balm: I’ve seen these out for awhile, but the egg shape was slightly intimidating. Curiosity got the best of me so I picked it up at my local Rite Aid for a couple of bucks. Love it. First I love that its all natural and 95% organic. And it’s super moisturizing.

J.R. Watkins Lemon Cream Hand Cream: My girlfriend at work had this and I found myself going into her office several times a day to steal a dab of this delicious hand cream. Incredibly moisturizing, this hand cream also smells amazing. Like lemon meringue pie. Dessert with out the calories.
