Winterize your nails with julep

As winter rolls in your nails and hands tend to get dry and nails brittle . So its time to prep your nails for winter . Here are some tips to try at home.
First lets start with moisturizing your hands .
A favorite of mine is L occitane shea butter since its not highly scented which I'm not fond of and works really well . 
Don't forget your feet! 
Juleps mint condition foot cream is a favorite of mine i put it on at night with socks and wake up with soft feet.

Next work on your cuticles which seem to go a bit wonky with the cold dry weather . Try using juleps vanish cuticle softener and remover .


Now that your hands are soft and cleaned up lets move on to the best bit colors!
You can never have enough red this julep color anisa doubles for winter and holiday parties


As I'm sure you have figured out i love purple and its also a color that works any time of the year. this color is alex 

Can you say frozen inspired aretha is perfect for winter wonderland nails!

Last but not least beatrix would love amazing layered on top of black for a nice dark winter look .

My birthday trip to California , lots of pics!

Hello! Okay so first I'd like to say sorry I've been a terrible blogger , its been months since i posted. I've been so busy with work and also I've got super into snail mail which I've  been doing for years now but i took on a lot more pals.
So onto the trip! In September I took the only real long vacation that I've had in years as a birthday gift to myself. It was really an amazing trip , the first trip in awhile i could completely not think about work for awhile and really relax. 

I went to southern California since i had gone to school out there and i think it stuck with me more then northern California . I ended up staying in Pasadena which i had actually never been to before. Aside from being far away from a lot of the places i wanted to go its really the perfect quiet kind of area for a trip. After months of yelping hotels i finally decided to stay at the Langham Huntington hotel. I'm so glad I did, I really can only think of one bad thing the whole time at this place and that was the $27 a day parking which there are no other options to lol. I can't even begin to describe how stunningly beautiful this hotel is . Also every single employee there was so kind and helpful which you think would be a given in any service industry but isn't always true lol. I even got an amazing room upgrade when i go back again I will definitely be staying there again . So first are the hotel pics so you can see a little of its beauty .


 This was my favorite spot the middle garden fountain area so pretty!


So on my actual birthday i took a trip down to my old area long beach to check out the aquarium and what used to be my favorite shoreline village.
You cant beat this view , it was the perfect sunny day.

So i had a bit of a dilemma of deciding to go to Disneyland or not , i decided it wasn't worth the $100 to go when i get to go to the much bigger Disney world when i visit my dad in Florida so instead chose just to go to downtown Disney. It ended up being my favorite night of the trip it was perfect i got the ambiance of Disney and the shopping and i discovered the amazing wonderground studios below!

Lastly I finally got to go to my favorite store in LA , Pinup Girl Clothing. I've been an online customer for years but have never got to visit their only real store it was so fun . I also picked up this yellow floral dress and saw one of their beautiful models that happened to be working there that day.
