Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Scented Nail Polish!

my answer: It kind of creeps me out, personally. There’s something about getting odd hints of something-rather with polish-esque scents randomly throughout the day that doesn’t do it for me!

Happy Sunday!

What have you been doing this weekend so far? Hope you’ve found at least a few ways to have fun :) My husband and I went out for date night dinner last night, which is always nice, and then we had gelato afterwards (he had coppa mista, I had moca almond). Mellan spent–literally–all Saturday sprawled out on my chaise lounge.  Today’s big task is to finish replying to all outstanding comments/questions (I did half of them yesterday), so thank you very much for your patience!
