I am much more of a college football fan than I am a pro-football fan, but since moving to New York City, I’ve begun embracing the Giants and will cheer them on tonight. I love Super Bowl Sundays for the commercials, food, and casual clothing. To show my support for the team I am rooting for, I gave myself a Giants manicure, and to finish off the perfect football Sunday look, I am carrying my oddly amazing Alexander Wang Football Clutch. A total novelty bag, this football shaped clutch from Alexander Wang is the perfect accessory for Superbowl Sunday.
2011 was a year where I began my nail polish obsession. I always enjoyed a good manicure but I never loved painting my own nails and I relied on salons to get the job done. I owned all of 5 polishes. But then something clicked and I became obsessed, and went from owning 5 polishes to now owning over 250 polishes. This is an intense addiction, but it is one where I actually use everything that I buy. I change my manicure every few days and try new polishes and new techniques.
Last week, I asked on Twitter what kind of manicure I should give myself and ginnnyna suggested a newspaper manicure. Truth be told, I never heard of this before but decided to do a google search and see what I could find out. The technique is simple and the finished design is totally nifty.
Also, I have been going bananas for rings and bracelets recently. Because my bags are held by hand, I love making them stand out even more by upping up my accessory game. Both rings in the photo are from Plukka and I am completely obsessed. If you love unique jewelry, check out their website which has a really interesting set up: what they make is what you want and the more people that order an item the less it costs each person. (more…)
