Friday Faves: A happy garden and some happy nails.

Okay- I love the nail decor fad that's happening. 

I'm not really one to give fashion advice-- mostly because I've been wearing the same crap since I was 20 and anything I think looks cute or fashionable probably makes me a great candidate for the TLC show What Not To Wear-- you know us weird, arty, nerdy/hippie chicks, we always look quirky, but not always in a good way. ha. I know I am not alone.

Anyway, while I am keeping my wardrobe low-key, I've been having fun playing with my nails. I've done a few designs and keep getting complemented by people whom I have deemed appropriate even fashionable dressers, so I thought I'd start showing off my nails since I've been having so much fun, and I don't mind the ego stroke.

OPI Nail Polish You Don't Know Jacques! as the base (My fave color for the past 3 months btw) and I have some nail polish pens from a few Christmas' ago that I used for the details.

And now, my Happy Garden.




...and I've been soaking some clippings from my one of my Ficus Trees for about a month now & this is what is happening...


Cool right?
I do this with all of my plants, and then give them to friends or repopulate my own garden.

Once I get some more roots on this guy, I'm going to put him in some soil and prep him for a new home. 
I am giving LIFE to my loved ones this holiday season in form of my sweet plants offspring. 
I love my plants. 

Tending to my garden is right next to playing with cats/kittens with a laser pointer 
on my Favorite Things To Do list..

Anyway nature is cool, and so are you.

xo,

  1. LOVIN' those nails...I feel the same way, too, btw. I'm not exactly a fashion professional...I wear t-shirts and jeans WAY too much. But I love playing with my hair, make-up and nails.
