Bright Pretty Things


This week was more of the same in terms of gray gloom, so I needed bright, spring colors to snap myself out of the winter blues.

I began my quest to brighten things up with a trip to Trader Joe’s. After grabbing all the week’s essentials [the usual suspects: turkey, spinach, bananas, etc], I walked up to the flower display once more and decided that these tulips had to come home with me. It’s so funny how something little like fresh flowers can improve my day, but trust me, they do.

I then made a pit stop at CVS before heading home, because how could I possibly walk by without seeing if they had put out any new beauty products since I was in there the day before? I had a few “extrabucks” rewards to burn, so I sought out the above peachy-coral polish [Tart Deco – inspired by Faith!], and bright red L’Oreal Pro-Last lip color [inspired by Ashlyn ;)].

Today was spent watching flowers bloom [seriously – they have been gradually opening up throughout the day], getting school-related things done, and giving myself a manicure. Not so bad for a gray, rainy Friday.

How was your week?

    A bunch of flowers really can make you feel better, and makes a room you walk into feel nicer. I love the colour of the YSL lipgloss x

    I was just thinking that a little Essie Tart Deco might fight off a bit of the winter gloom. Vampy red polish just isn’t that much of a mood lifter.

    Funnily enough, I just bought some tulips too, and yes they do seem to bloom before your eyes. I like the Tart Deco nail polsih, very pretty, 🙂
