As you already know from my last post, there are three new babies in people's lives around me. To keep with this trend of little things I have something else to show you! While Andrew and I were at Longwood Gardens (google it) last weekend we saw the most adorable little bonsai trees. Seriously...some were older then my grandparents (like the one from 1909!). Anyway, Andrew knew I liked the bonsai trees and when we saw them for sale in the store he bought me one! Yep, proud owner of a "Mini Jade Tree" which, if you don't know, is a South African tree (I knew nothing about it) that might flower in autumn. By sheer luck we found out it's one of the easiest bonsais to care for. Andrew even made sure to equip me with the appropriate bonsai trimmers. So sweet! Check out my little bonsai:

Fun tip about Nikki: Babies freak me out. Buying little clothes that wouldn't even fit around my knee was odd and Andrew wasn't making it any better as he stood in the store's aisle looking around visibly thinking "ew babies." Clearly the two of us are destined to be a set of fantastic parents right?? Haha. That's a world away! Anyway, some of the items we got were so cute! Cute little whale shorts, a turquoise onsesie with some shorts, and a few Burt's Bees organic cotton clothes because Andrew's brother and sister-in-law are particular about Lily's stuff. I may not be anticipating having a kid any time soon but is it bad that I'm super excited for when my sister has one? Babies freak me out but I will totally spoil my little niece or nephew when I have one!! Oh yeah, I almost forgot Andrew is going to be "Uncle Andrew" to someone....how odd! Here are the designs. I was celebrating both a little boy and a little girl so I needed to do pink AND blue with baby feet.

Hey all! Today's post is coming to you from the beach! You know...the place of hotels, sand, miniature golf, all you can eat crab, boardwalk, boardwalk fries, etc. Yay! The nail design is a take on the popular lifeguard logo (if I were not posting from the actual beach I would link to an example....until then Google Ocean City sweatshirts and you'll sed what I mean). I'll update this post when I'm back near a computer but until then....sandy toes and salty kisses is all I need!!

I'm kinda sorta really completely obsessed with this manicure to be honest. (It's not bad to really like your own manicure right?). For this birthday look, I used Essie Be Right Bag as the base and then dotted ROY G. BIV (the rainbow) across the nail in Zoya Kristi, OPI Flit A Bit, Sinful Colors Pull Over, China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada, China Glaze Moody Blue, Orly Blue Suede, and Zoya Mira.
And I just realized right now that I did NOT include my age on this one! I always put the person's age on the thumb! Dagnabbit!
