I have a LOT of things I love. A lot of products I swear by. A lot of things I simply can’t live without. But my list of things I love is always growing. So, each month I’m going to share with you guys what I’m loving for that month. In the words of Andy Cohen, “here’s what three things I’m obsessed with [this month]!”
Yep. Like the kind we used as a kid. Or our moms used in the 80s. Yes, press on nails. I promise. I’m loving them these days. Here’s why:
- I’m on a budget. In 2020, hubs and I are laser focused on our financial goals. And my bi-weekly gel manicure with a design habit was starting to get expensive. Not to mention, it was tearing up my naturally strong and beautiful nails. Press-Ons are a cheap alternative to this. Depending on the brand you get (I’m a fan of Kiss and Static), a box will run you $7-$15. Even if you buy a box a week, you’re spending $60/month at most. That’s essentially the cost of one of my visits to the nail salon when I calculate gel, design, and tip.
- They’re easy. You simply file them to fit your fingernail shape and nail bed. Apply your glue, sit still for 2 or 3 minutes and you’re on your way.
- It’s a good way to try different nail designs and shapes without much of a commitment. Hate it? Who cares, you can take them off after a day or a week. These nails come in all shapes, colors and lengths. The are a great way to be versatile without much investment.
In fact, I am so in love with them, my first “60 Seconds of Chic” was all about them. Check it out!
Fun, Bold Sneakers
It probably comes as a surprise to exactly nobody that I haven’t always been into sneakers. For many years I didn’t own any sneakers beyond my workout shoes. That all changed when I met my husband who is a bonafide sneaker head. He quickly started converting me and helping get my sneaker game up. I am by no means a sneaker head but I do have a respectable growing collection.
Right now though, I’m living for fun and bold sneakers. My two favorite pairs are my Adidas Questar Flow sneakers (I didn’t know I needed butterflies on my sneakers until I saw these) and my Nike Star Runners in Red (purchased in Big Kids size because, hey, I have small feet!).
I’m obsessed with these shoes because they add instant style and pop to any basic outfit. Whether I’m running errands or running through the airport, these shoes add interest to my outfit.
Violet Fox Monogram Tote
I love anything with a monogram. Always have. Always will. So I am fully obsessed with this amazing tote I ordered from Violet Fox on Black Friday. It’s the perfect work tote – it fits all of my essentials – and it is classic and stylish. I love this bag. That’s it – I love it!
