All things LOVED in October

I can't believe were already through another month in the year 2010.... the time is flying

I skipped out on All things LOVED in September - only because not much new was going on - and the only things that I could think of for the newly found items in my life had to do with food - so rather than sounding like a total fatty - i decided to focus on the next month and find items [and some food] that I LOVED this month

and i was able to do that

1. my iPhone - Bella [Isabella]
i love her
every time I'm on Bella, Justin asks - "you lovey your phone - don't you?" and every time I have to answer yes!
I'm loving having a smart phone again and I'm loving all the apps that I have and how something so small can keep me entertained for hours!
I'm pretty sure getting the iPhone was a life changing experience [for the better!]
[and i'm still kinda obsessing over my cover too - love it!]
2. Xhilaration Raspberry Flats from Target

I picked up these beauts about 2 weeks ago from Tar-Jay... I'm not a big flats person - however I'm loving these to wear to work or out and about with a pair of jeans
who needs heels to make your {you know what look good} when you can spice up your outfit with a cute little flat?
[double loving the fact they were only $15 last week]
3. Orville Redenbacker's Lime and Salt Mini Bags of Popcorn

Thank you Shannon from Life After I Dew for turning me onto this delish little snack. Ya'll know that I'm a sucker for anything lime, and these are just the right hint of lime. I think Shannon said it best - the only problem is that it's a mini bag and not a full bag of popcorn. Come on Orville - get your act together if your going to offer something this delicious - please offer us the big bags of popcorn too!

4. New York and Company Belts

I have worn my black belt once a week since I purchased it. I bought it originally for a jean dress [or is it more appropriate to say denim!?], and then I started pairing it with sweaters, with tops, with anything that needed that little extra pop of an accessory.

5. Gel Nails

My entire life I have had a difficult time keeping my nails manicured and looking decent - so whenever I had acrylics on I felt more polished and it was one less thing to deal with - however as we all know acrylics tear your nails up, and it gets pretty pricey every 3-4 weeks to have a balance... so I was beyond excited when I found out about gel nails.

Its a polish that takes 3 minutes to set but other than that nothing is added to your nail. You sit under the dryer thing [for lack of a better word] and then it sets and you have a thicker and much stronger nail. They are said to last anywhere from 4-6 weeks. I got mine done yesterday in 30 minutes [like left my house, drove the shopping plaza in front of my condo, sat down, had my nails done, and was back HOME in 30 minutes!]- how amazing is that - much better than sitting in the chair for 45- 1 hour, i don't know about you, but i don't have time for that.

Here they are on day 1 - i will make sure to keep y'all up dated on how they look a few weeks out - but for now - i'm all about the gel nails!

sorry blogger would not let me turn this picture if my life depending on it!

Happy November!!!

P.S. there is a Halloween Post up under this one.... you will have to check out our costumes!

I'm going to try those gel nails soon! They're sooo much better for your nail - and my nails are weak due to the acrylic overlay I have!

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma said...

I love your iphone cover! I need that!

Kelly said...

I just love your monthly recaps! The lime popcorn sounds sooo tasty! I'm going to have to pick up a box! And I too love flats from Target-- I'm going to pick up a new pair today actually. They're on sale for $10 and they're gray tweed with a little black do-hicky on the toe area :-) Your nails look FANTASTIC!!

Caroline said...

Where did you get the cover? I've searched the internet for it and I can't find it anywhere!!! Love those flats too!

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

OMG I should have gotten gel nails last week! My nails were finally long I wanted something sturdy so I got an overlay but now seeing yours makes me want mine done with gel!

Lindsay said...

Mama Laughlin said...

Lindsey, question about the gel nails..
I want to get them done.
Do they drill on your REAL nails?
Cause I"m looking for something that is not going to ruin my real nails!

How is it done??
