OOTD:: Polka Dots and Turquoise

Today's Outfit of the Day is Polka Dots with a Splash of my favorite color, turquoise. This  dress is fun and flirty and yet casual chic. It is a grown up version of polka dots that you could even wear on a date! The splash of turquoise is the perfect accent for the tan dress ; who doesn't like turquoise? The checkered back is definitely my favorite element of this dress.  Pair it off with some tan wedges, and your ready to go!
ps, don't forget your =) with your outfit!

Thoughtful Thursday

Do you think YOU matter??
So this week has been a very long week for me.  Monday, someone crashed into my car.   
Thankfully, I wasn't hurt too bad this time. This is the second accident I have been in in the past two years.  The first one still astonishes me.  The police and doctors said even they do not know how I survived. Even though accidents happen everyday, and worse things happen, these two accidents have been by far the hugest two moments of my life, which leads me to think, is there a reason I have been alive both times, other than pure luck?  
Maybe we all really are put in this world for a reason.  There is this quote I once found::
"Sometimes people come into your life and you know
right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become." 
I want all of you to challenge yourselves.  Think of these questions and see how you answer them:  If you died today, do you think you left a mark? Would you be satisfied with how you treated others or handled your situations?
I may be crazy or reading too much into an accident, but I know this for a fact, if I died that day, I would not be satisfied.  I for one want to not just leave an impression, but help influence others for a lifetime for the better. I do think everybody matters.  People come and go into our lives for a reason, whether it is big or small, whether it was to show us a positive attitude or make us stronger.
The accident two years ago.  Notice how literally everything was crushed except for just my door..
Monday's accident; right where I was.

As Emily Thorne once said on Revenge, "Unpredicatble moments can change your life if YOU let them.''

Mani Mondays

Summer is ALL about bright colors. Ever tried on a neon nail polish and wonder why even though it is neon, it looks dull? Well today I am going to show you how to get the most out of your neon nail polish! 
1) First, you want to clean your nails and file them according to how you like it shaped.  I prefer the square look.

2) This step is the secret element in getting the most out of your neons.  Adding white nail polish serves as a base for your neons and helps the color truly show.

3) Notice a difference?? The left hand shows how it looks WITH a white base, while the right hand shows how nail polish would look like without the white base.  Obviously the most neon color is shown by the left hand.

4) All finished! Some may want to keep one all around neon color, while others like this look.  Whatever the look, you have the most neon for your buck! 

Now you know the neon secret! Here's some other looks with neon that I found looks great!
