NOTD and a few little things

I just turned 26 this past Sunday so I decided to do a festive birthday NOTD reminiscent of glitter, cupcakes and sprinkles :)

1 coat of Milani 3D Holographic in 3D
1 coat of Milani Gems (all over the nail)
1 coat of Sally Hansen Ring My Shell
1 coat of Milani Gems (on the tips for a gradient effect)
Seche Vite Topcoat

It’s a bit hard to see the very first layer of glitter in my photo but if you squint a bit you can tell there’s something hidden there. Applying a milky, sheer color over the glitter added a nice layering effect that reminds me a little bit of the Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday polish!

Lately I’ve been going to the gym regularly so I bought a plethora of workout tops and shorts to keep me motivated (and save time on laundry)! Nothing too special.

But I have a few cute little things to share that I’ve bought recently… like this clock!

I’ve relied on Ipad apps for my alarm but after sleeping in a few times I decided to quit alarm apps for good. I got this little ‘wooden’ cube on Ebay here for $10.48 with shipping.

Okay it isn’t too convincing with the faint digital numbers but I love the concept! This is what it looks like when its resting and in order to show the time and temperature you clap to wake it up! So very cute.

I also found this ombre striped tank by Splendid while thrifting for only $2.99 (past season retail for $56 on Shopbop). This a size Medium but I may take the straps in myself to make it fit a little better. It will be really cute for my Hawaii trip with some white shorts!

I also found a bunch of Target overstock Gilligan O’Malley sleep rompers and a tank at Goodwill too.. I feel super lucky because I saw these at Target and fell in love…but I couldn’t justify paying $20 for each piece. Later when I went back a second time they were gone (not even on clearance!) I’m glad I waited because each romper was only $5 and the tank was $3! *happy dance*

Another thrift find was this Free People wedding top for $10.99 (a past season top that retailed for $88). This was a bit steep for thrift but I love the fabric layering and the hook and eye closures.

By the way, thank you so much for all the birthday wishes :)

Thanks for reading! :)
