Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everybody! My Halloween nails aren't exactly spooktacular BUT they do have a tie to Halloween. Has anyone ever seen the movie Hocus Pocus?! It's one of my favorites and I always watch it on Halloween!

The three Sanderson sisters...characters in the movie of course. They inspired 3/5ths of this manicure and I hope you can tell how!
My index, middle, and ring fingers are all inspired by the corsets! Purple and pink for Sarah Jessica Parker, green and blue for Bette Midler, and orange and red for Kathy Najimy. Then on my pinkie is Frankenstein (a cute frankenstein if you ask me) and on my thumb is a mummy.

Inspired by: Raspberry Lemonade Blistex

Inspiration really does come from everywhere. Today, my inspiration for a nail design actually came from a bottle of Raspberry Lemonade Blistex chapstick. Seriously. There was something about the red and yellow combo that got me thinking about a nail design. I don't think I've ever paired yellow and red before in a design. For this look I used China Glaze Solar Power, Zoya Kristi, and BundleMonster plate 208.

I have to say, I really really like this pairing. And it makes me wish I had raspberry lemonade to drink! (Especially while I wait for Hurricane Sandy to come through here..)

Hurricane Sandy...YIKES

I'm ready for Hurricane Sandy to come through. I live pretty close to the east coast (close enough they're evacuating the city to the South of me) so they've been warning us of the danger Hurricane Sandy poses. Law school already closed for tomorrow AND Tuesday via text alert so they must be thinking it's pretty serious. I hope everyone stays safe and the hurricane blows through here with minimal damages. I've stocked up on water, non-perishables, batteries, matches, and candles. For right now I think I'll enjoy my tea....and do some yoga. I want to get back to my gymnastics days so bad!!!

At it again: Zebra

After posting my leopard manicure I wanted to do yet another manicure....more zebra! I liked the glitzy-ness of the gold in the leopard mani so I wanted to have a sparkle element in a zebra manicure too!

For this look I used China Glaze Recycle, Orly Liquid Vinyl, and Essence Silver Surfer.

Homemade Hummus

You know how everyone has little obsessions? I am no different, I am obsessed with a few things too! On the list is my car, scarves, nail polish, learning to cook, running, avocados and HUMMUS. Seriously. So while I sat at my computer in my Civil Procedure class I decided...why not make some homemade hummus when I got back to my apartment? I always buy it and then I think to myself you can do that, there's really nothing to it. I finally decided to go for it when I saw chick peas were on sale last week. I bought three cans and used half of one to make this yummy salad for dinner last week.

Today I broke out the second can and decided to whip up some hummus. I used this recipe I found online (could it get any easier?? I don't think so!). It was so simple, I only used chickpeas, olive oil, some salt, and some of the liquid from the chickpes to make it but obviously the recipe calls for things like tahini, lemon juice, etc (I didn't have that in my cupboard...maybe at some point I'll make legitimate hummus with all the spices and such--perhaps roasted red pepper hummus. Yum!!). Talk about simple ingredients and no time at all spent preparing!

It's l-e-o-P-a-r-d not l-e-o-T-a-r-d!

Obviously after posts like this one, or this one, or maybe any one of these, it's pretty clear I have been bit by animal print fever for a while now (It's sort of like Bieber Fever...only better). I've done mostly zebra since it's my favorite print but I've also tried some leopard and even peacock. This time I decided to try a bit more leopard in gold and black.

Dinner tonight

My delicious dinner for tonight. Lettuce, cucumber slices, tomato, chick peas (I'm obsessed), Tuscan Italian House dressing (from Giant) and homemade croutons! Yes, that's right, I actually made my own croutons!

Got my torts midterm grade!

SERIOUSLY SO PLEASED WITH MY PERFORMANCE ON THE TORTS MIDTERM! Can't even believe it. The class is 43 or so students and I got the fourth highest grade (law school is graded on a forced curve--best gets the A, worst gets F, and the rest fill out the A-, B, etc based on their performance compared to everyone else). Intentional torts are officially my absolute favorite thing in the world! Wahooo! I think I'll celebrate with some yoga!

Lunchtime

Love my lunch breaks between classes! Let's me do some work AND eat :) Turkey, cheese, and lettuce wrap along with some Special K cracker chips and Ferrarra Rocher for dessert. Yummm.

Feeling blue?

Hey everyone, just a quick post of the nails I painted during the presidential debate tonight. How do you like? I feel like I'm running a marathon with this whole law school thing and I have a list of manicures I can't wait to get done!! They seem to be having to wait until my winter break though in December unfortunately. So much to do, so little time!!
