Vegas and San Francisco Trip

Hey there you gorgeous bloggers!

So I know this isn't a nail post. Sorry for those who are disappointed, but I always feel like some of my favorite blogs to read are the ones that also share a little about themselves and what else is going on in their lives. Plus, I was so busy on vacation so I actually kept my manicure from my last post on for over 9 days. Unbelievable right?! 

This week I was so lucky to go to Vegas for five days to spend with my sister, Diana. I got an amazing deal on my flight on Southwest. Chicago to Las Vegas was only $69 each way!!! You can not beat that!

Then for three days we both went to San Francisco to visit our friend, Kristine. Even better, my friend Vanessa was able to hop over from Los Angeles for the three days as well. 

Here's a little photo montage of my trip...

This is me bonding with my nephewdog, Roscoe Jenkins. This was actually the first time I actually got to meet him even though my sister has had him for like 5 years. He is the sweetest French Bull Dog you will ever meet. 

These were to of my favorite things I picked up at the outlets in Las Vegas!!! They had some great deals. :D

This was my favorite dessert, fresh mini donuts from an amazing steak house in Vegas called Herbs & Rye. We went during happy hour so our steaks were half off too!!! Mmmmm I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! 

These are the sourdough bread bears from Boudin Bakery at the Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.

This is a shot of the gorgeous day I spent in Napa Valley wine tasting. This specific winery is Artesi. I could have sat outside in all that greenery all day! So much better than the Chicago weather right now.

After all that drinking I sure needed a good meal, and the Freemont Diner in Sonoma did not disappoint! It sure didn't look like much from the outside, but man was their food delicious! We calorie splurged on Oyster Po'Boys, freshly made dill potato chips, spicy fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and my favorite, fried brussel sprouts. 

How did you guys spend your St. Patrick's day???

Zoya Pinks

Hello Gorgeous!!!

Spring is in the air finally in Indiana so of course I needed a spring manicure! For some reason pink just always screams spring to me. Plus it was a great chance to use my new pink Zoyas I got in January during their sale. 

The first one I had to try was Dana. It is a bright, dark pink. I used some nail art polishes in white, black and silver glitter to do a waterfall nail on my ring and pointer finger. Lastly, a coat of Deborah Lippman's Hard Rock as top coat. 

On my next manicure I used Erika and Tinsley together. 

Out of the two, Tinsley which is shown on my middle and ring finger was my favorite. It has a really soft sparkle built into it and it was gorgeous in the light! I also used Tinsley to do the waterfall striping along with black and silver nail art polish. The soft pink polish on my thumb, pointer, and pinkie finger is Erika. It also had a soft gold shimmer built into it as well. I had to use it over two coats of white polish because it is a very sheer pink. 

Hope you love it! Also you can check out some of my other nails pics on my instagram account, GENIEWTDBH.

Until next time, enjoy the gorgeous weather!!!
