How to Save Money on Flights


You’re looking to cross places off your bucket list and the pricing for flights is disappointing, right? I’m sure we’ve all been there. For many of us, the ticket is the bulk of the expense followed by accommodations and travel once you’ve arrived at your destination. As I’m currently traveling in Europe, I’ve been getting questions asking how I went from country to country and was able to travel on a budget. In this post, I plan to give my tips and tricks on how to save money on flights.

Essie Pre Show Jitters

And I’m back at it again with another Manicure Monday post, only this time I’m writing about a polish from Essie’s Gel Couture line! Essie launched their Gel Couture line last year in either April or May with 42 colors and a top coat!  I’ve been loving off white, beige, and nude polishes during the summer!  Continue Reading

Travel Guide: Munich, Germany

Europe, Germany, Travel

1st stop of my Europe Trip is in Munich, Germany. One of my favorite places that I visited was Munich’s main square in the city center, Marienplatz, especially because the architecture was absolutely stunning! It’s such a beautiful and historic city, I highly recommend a pit stop if you’re ever planning to travel to Europe.

Mani Monday: Essie ‘Mrs Always-Right’

Essie, Manicure Monday

Summer is in full effect in San Diego with palm trees and a beautiful breeze. I’ve been switching out my nail polish more often and have recently fallen in love with a polish in my Essie collection. For the most part, I love Essie polishes, although I’ve purchased some that were just too streaky. Mrs. Always-Right, on the other hand, is absolutely beautiful. If I could describe this polish in one word, it would be raspberry. Mrs. Always-Right is a gorgeous rose, yet neutral mauve that is very flattering on my skin tone. This polish is definitely one that I can wear year round!

Initial Thoughts:  First off, this polish is part of Essie’s 2016 Bridal Collection. The formula for this polish is very opaque even with one coat of nail polish. Although I still prefer using a base coat, 2 coats of nail polish and a top coat for longer wear time. In these pictures, I’ve only applied 2 coats of polish, although I definitely think I could’ve gotten away with only 1 coat. This is definitely, hands down, one of my FAVORITE Essie polishes! The application was a dream!

Mani Monday: Essie ‘Sand Tropez’

Essie, Manicure Monday

Spring is here! I love changing up my nail polish every 7-10 days. I tend to wear a lot of black, so I add some color by painting my nails. As many of you know, Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands to use. Today, I’m using Sand Tropez- a beautiful, soft beige which I believe is one of their best sellers. It’s definitely one of my favorite nudes and looks flattering on all skin tones. I definitely recommend you try it out if you love a polish that pretty much goes with anything.

Essie, Manicure Monday

Hey Everyone! Thank you for tuning in as always! I’m back at it again with another Mani Monday post since I know you enjoy them. For the past 2 years, I have been obsessing over Essie… it’s the only polish I wear. I love to buy at least 1 Essie polish a month, and if I skip a month, I end up buying 2. I’ve accumulated 27 polishes thus far & the neutrals are my favorites! If you have any color requests, let me know in the comments & I will gladly go out & buy it to try it!

Essie’s Topless & Barefoot is in the spotlight today! 🙂
