Hello, folks! I’m back sooner than I’d planned because I’m going to try and avoid a huge backlog of manis again! An Instagram friend and fellow nail art/polish lover, Danielle, has recently been having a difficult time with life in general, so a few of us got together and created manis in her favourite colours… Continue reading Fighter
Hello! I haven’t been very motivated to post lately or be on social media very much. This lack of sunshine is really getting to me now. I think vacation and home combined, we’ve had about 3 days of sunshine since November! It’s gloomy and sad outside, so that’s how we’re feeling on the inside too.… Continue reading That’s Bugging Me!
Hello, folks! I’m back for the last time this year with a mani I love. As with so many of my recent posts, it’s an old one from the camera roll, done in the late summer, but it’s a special one to me. I am in love with the base polish and the image I… Continue reading Lagoon

The theme for November was recreation of a friend’s mani (in fall… Continue reading A Plaid Kick
Hello! I am perpetually impressed by babies’ determination and grit. Today, I served Baby ACD spaghetti for lunch and didn’t even bother offering her utensils. I assumed she would go at it with her hands. Not only did she ask for a fork, she refused to use her hands at all, despite the fact that… Continue reading Zodiac
Hello, folks! The latest prompt for the #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram was “prugly colours” – for those of you not familiar with the term, that means pretty ugly. I guess the word can be interpreted in a number of ways. It could mean neither pretty, nor ugly; or pretty ugly; or, in my opinion, something ugly… Continue reading Cozy Plaid
Hello, folks! It’s Halloween tomorrow and I have not one, but two manis to post tonight.
