My Uniform: Jeans & Tees

Jeans & Tees




Armani Jeans cap sleeve tee
$105 - julesb.co.uk





J Brand skinny fit jeans
$150 - julesb.co.uk


Current/Elliott skinny fit jeans
$345 - julesb.co.uk



Armani Jeans snake print jeans

Current/Elliott leopard print skinny jeans

My day to day uniform, jeans and t-shirts.  The accessories and shoes may change, I might throw on a sweater or blazer  but the jeans and tees stay the same!  
My current inner debate though is, printed jeans or not?  I love the look of the snakeskin jeans but not so sure they would translate as cool on me.  
What's your daily uniform?  Have you tried printed jeans? Yay or nay?

NOTD Chanel & China Glaze

Chanel Nouvelle Vague and China Glaze For Audrey

Nouvelle Vague Has that "hidden shimmer" Chanel polish often has but it doesn't translate on the nail. For Audrey is a bit more aqua and is on my index and pinky fingers, Nouvelle Vague is on my middle and ring fingers.

I was tagged by three fellow bloggers for this super sweet award! Angie @ http://polishandpatience.blogspot.com/, Emily @ http://canvasnails.blogspot.com/ and Sohni @ http://www.themanicurette.com/ . This is such a fun way to find blogs you may not know about.

10. I like to watch beauty videos on YouTube.

11 Questions For Me:
(I'm answering Emily's questions because she tagged me first and I couldn't decide on a mix of all three!)

1. When/How did you start blogging?
I started blogging to satisfy the inner fashion stylist in me. I love fashion and putting outfits together but my lifestyle doesn't call for most of what I like to style. I was Polyvoring up a storm, posting them on a forum and getting a lot of great feedback from people so I started this blog to have a place to post them all. Then I started getting more into nail polish and I was buying a lot and changing it as often as I could. Nail/beauty blogs were starting to get very popular so I figured why not post Nail of the Day pictures here too? I still post outfits occasionally and other fashion related posts but it's primarily a nail/beauty blog now.

2. What color do you have the most of in your collection?
Oh boy....I would say it's a good mix but heavy on the vampy's, reds, blues and greens.

3. How many bottles of polish do you own?
You know what? I've never counted....BRB. My estimation is somewhere between 475 and 500. I hope my husband doesn't read this!

4. What do your friends/family think of your hobby?
I don't usually tell people. My immediate family knows, in fact my son told someone the other day and I tried to subtly shush him! Didn't work. I think my kids think it's cool, my husband does too. I feel like a lot of people in my real life would think it's materialistic and frivolous, so I guess that's why I don't go around telling anyone. And, at the end of the day, I do this for me and for anyone who might stop by to see swatches. This is one of my creative outlets.

5. What are your hobbies other than blogging?
I love to read, make jewelry, do little DIY/home improvement projects and garden.

6. What would be your dream polish?
My dream polish would be something that looks like the Caribbean Ocean. And very jelly but not sheer.

7. If you could have any super power what would it be?
Teleportation! Easy, fast way to travel!

8. What is your favorite food?
Anything Italian or Mexican.

9. What trends do you love?
I guess I love the "arm candy" trend. I've always loved bracelets anyway.

10. What is your first memory of nail polish?
Being maybe 9 or 10 and my Mom allowing me to paint my own nails for the first time. It was an Avon polish (I can still remember what the bottle looked like) and bright red! That must be why I love red polish so much. I also remember I made a complete mess! I was also very into mixing my polishes to make new colors, early frankening :P

11. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
Probably somewhere very beachy and tropical like Bali. I most likely wouldn't want to leave though. I'm really interested in architecture and would love to visit Prague one day.

11 Questions For You:

1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
2. What color do you have the most of in your collection?
3. How many bottles of polish do you own?
4. What do your friends/family think of your hobby?

6. What would be your dream polish?
7. If you could have any super power what would it be?
