Pink + Rose Treats for Your Valentine’s Day

Two things my 15-year-old self never thought I’d grow to love- bright pinks and rose scents. Despite my sweet mom’s attempts at trying to encourage me to be, or at least dress like, a “girly girl” I’ve always had this deep dislike for dresses, all things pink and anything that smelled even remotely close to roses.

Pretty Pinks, Nudes + Neutrals- Simple Nail Colors to Love

Smooth, creamy ivory, sheer “barely there” pinks and soft, peachy nudes- these are some of my most-trusted, “it will go with everything” nail colors. There’s just something timeless, simple and effortless about my favorite bunch over here. I just mentioned in this post that I’m taking a break from gel manicures, so I’m bringing back my most loved regular and “UV-lamp-free” gel polishes back into the rotation. Essie Gel Couture Lace Me Up– creamy, rose-pink that’s a bit on the…
