well if you say so...

I haven't been checking my blog too frequently these days. I decided to check today, and I found this little gem...
Aw, I love you too sweetie.
For those who don't know, Christian is my fiance who is currently serving in Afghanistan as a US Marine. And he's bored out of his mind.

Anyways, a hodgepodge type post is better than no post, right?

I've been obsessed with half moon manicures lately. Standard half moons are usually a nude or white moon, with the rest of the nail in any shade of red. I decided to reverse it, and I really liked this! I felt all vintage and classy.

On my last post, a lot of you guys said you'd love to see some recipes and baking photos! Well, I got super excited and rushed to the kitchen to make chocolate macarons. They turned out horrible. Because my almond meal was too moist, the shells turned out fragile and soggy. They look awfully perfect in the pan though, don't they?

And what's a random post without cat pictures?

Well Christian, I hope you're happy now ;)

And to everyone else. Thanks for reading!


more freehanded nail art: one of my favorites

I hope everyone is having a great October! I love fall. Well, technically, it's still summer here. California's idea of October: 80 degrees F.

I've been in love with baking lately. Cakes, pies, cookies... but my favorite to make so far has been French macarons! I'd be happy to post some pics and recipes if anyone would like that! :)

This mani was done maybe a month ago. It took a while, but I LOVED it. I'm glad I took the time to freehand the stripes rather than just Konad them. I know, I know, stop talking and get to the pictures!

Thanks for looking! I hope everyone is well- I've missed you guys!
