Me? Trendy??

30 Sep

So all the cool kids are doing the whole accent nail thing – where you paint one nail a different color. As someone who has always desperately wanted to be a cool kid, I figured it was best I continue that into my late 20’s!

Last night I had some free time on my hands so I decided to give it a go. And, like all wannabe cool kids, I combined multiple trends into one. Apparently 2 hot nail colors for the fall are navy blue and greige – both of which I used.


So what do we think? If you’re interested – I used OPI Light my Sapphire and Essie Master Plan

Ps – I’m really really really sorry to the powers that be for no links. I’m new to the whole blogging thing an I don’t know how to add them yet!!


ABC’s of Me!

29 Sep

Since we’re all getting to know eachother here, I thought doing the old ABC post that some of my fave bloggers do would be a fun way for you guys to get to know me. So, here we go!

A. Age: 28 – just turned it a few weeks ago. Inching closer and closer to 30 – ugh

B. Bed size: Kind – and it’s glorious!

C. Chore you hate: Sweeping. We have hardwood floors and 3 pets, you do the math

D. Dogs: 2 sweet babies! Actually, Finn is like 7 and Hippo is 2, but they’ll always be babies to me!

E. Essential start to your day: Checking Facebook and Twitter on my iPhone

F. Favorite color: Pink!

Hi!  Welcome to Everyday Amazement!  Did that just sound like the welcome to a talk show?  Oh well, I’m a bit cheesy.  I hope that’s ok!

So, what is this little blog about?  Well, it’s about trying to find amazement in every day things.  That could be the adorbs thing my dog did, a fabulous new pair of shoes, or anything that strikes me.  Or, it’s going to be about my general life ramblings.  But, the other way sounds way fancier!

I guess I’ll get started by telling you a little about me.  I”m a 20 something (can you say that if you’re closer to 30 than 20?  Cause I’m going to) kind of newlywed (I got married a year and a half ago).  I have 2 precious dogs – you’ll meet them in a bit, a fat kitty, and a wonderful husband.  We bought our first home a year ago and are sloooooowly trying to freshen it up.  I love fashion, but have none of it myself, shoes are my weakness (but what red blooded girl doesn’t LOVE shoes?!), I love love love to shop and often find myself explaining to my husband why I needed my most recent purchase.  I’m constantly dieting or changing the way I eat in an effort to lose weight, only to follow a healthy dinner with fro yo covered in delish toppings.  Oh, and clearly, I love putting things in parentheses.

So, who am I and who is my little family?  Well, here we are!

Me and my darling hubby, B

So, there you have it.  Thanks for visiting my little blog that could.  Stick around, I promise it’ll get interesting!
