I want everyone to tell me, what was the first thought that came to your mind when you read the title of this post. If I hadn’t known what I was going to write about, I would have guessed I was talking about a mother. To me, the mother of the family is the glue of the family.BUT, that is not the type of glue I am talking about. Instead let me tell you a little story about what happens when your nail technician goes away for two weeks to visit his mother. Do you know how long it has been since I had my nails done? It has been WEEKS!!! They are super long, and are driving me crazy. I don’t have tips on my nails, but they do put the gel overlay on my nails because they are so thin. The gel keeps them from breaking and splitting. When you go for so long between appointments, the gel starts to grow out and will “lift” from the cuticle of the nail. Normally when this starts to happen, I go and have the nails redone. However, do to circumstances beyond my control, I have not been able to have a Saturday free to get them done, and now I find out that Bill (my nail guy) will be out of town for another week. I have been doing what I can do keep the nails from coming off. I have worn a bandaid around the nails to help hold it on, and then I finally resorted to using super glue. I keep a bottle in my desk drawer, so I put a couple drops under the lifting part, and then hold it down till it sticks. This has been working great. I have had to use it four or five times, because they keep coming loose. Yesterday I had one nail that was almost completely off, so I used a few more drops than normal. In fact, a few drops even spilled onto my computer desk. I grabbed a kleenex and wiped up the spill, all while holding the glue bottle with my other hand. You guessed it! When I went to put the glue bottle down, I had my thumb and pointer finger glued fast to the bottle. Then when I tried to pull them loose, the pointer finger on my other hand attached. Holy Crap!!! Here I was by myself, Joe had gone golfing, and I was thinking how ridiculous I was. I finally got the one finger loose, but could NOT get the other two loose. I went to the medicine cabinet and found some rubbing alcohol and poured it on my hand, but it did nothing. Finally I soaked my fingers in a bowl, and was able to pry one loose. It did not let go easily. When I got the other one loose, I think I might have left a little DNA on the bottle. My fingers were sore all night long. For the record, I did finally think about using nail polish remover, but not until much later that night. Hahaha! I will be much more careful in the future!This top continues with my gray theme of last week. I loved the twist tie detail at the collar of the top. I started not to wear a necklace, and just let the twist detail stand alone, but as I was leaving out of the bedroom this necklace was laying on the dresser. I took that as an omen, the tassel looked so cute with the top, that I just had to keep it on. The top is from Talbots, and I am sure I purchased it at the Prime Outlet Mall in Orlando, Florida.
Twist Detail Top: Nine West | Anne Klein | PattyBoutikHere is a better look at the print of the top. It is also a closer look at my Trudy necklace by Plunder, and my Retro Glam square rhinestone bracelet from Chloe & Isabel. Chloe & Isabel is having a HUGE sale right now. There is a ton of products on sale up to 65% off, only till they are sold out. If you have ever wanted to try some of their jewelry, now is the time. Just remember to type my name (Tania Stephens) in the Find A Merchandiser box. If you purchase any of the Plunder jewelry, just type my stylist number in the box when you go to checkout (241007). I have started an online party, and there is a dropdown box where you can choose Tania’s P Party at checkout. If you would like to have an online or FaceBook party, contact me and I will help you set everything up.
But, what I really wanted to show you in this picture, was these nasty grown out fingernails. See why they are killing me! Bill (my nail guy) better come home quickly or I will have these things completely taken off.The blue/green color in the top might not be a “perfect” match to my pants, but I think they look fine together. I believe the top is more toward the blue hue, and the pants are more toward the green. I could have said that it was the lighting in my bedroom, but truth is, I thought it looked good enough. Don’t you just love thinking you look “good enough?” Lol! I would have preferred to think I looked fantastic, on fleek, smoking hot, or even to-die-for. But, instead, I went with good enough. Hahaha
Mint Jeans: TJ Maxx | Kut from the Kloth | TalbotsI didn’t get a close-up photo of my other Plunder bracelet. It is similar to the feather and pearl bracelet, but the pearl drops on this one are a pale blue/green, and it is called the Mara. PERFECT for this outfit! I went with my Marc Fisher cork wedge shoes. I just thought the outfit needed a different color. Since they are a neutral color, they “go” with the look. I could have worn a pair of white shoes that would match my white tote, but white on my feet make them look huge. I already wear a 9 in shoes, I don’t need any extra help making them look bigger.
White Tote: Similar | Similar | SimilarI hope you have enjoyed laughing at me, and with me. I think laughter is essential. Joe and I have a saying that we use all the time, “In ten years this will all be funny.” Sometimes it is funny right then, and sometimes it takes all ten years. Either way you need to laugh, it makes everything much more tolerable.
