Decor: Christmas with more colors!

Probably over a year ago I stumbled across this photo:


Of course I lost track of the photo, because Pinterest didn't exist and I didn't think it would be that hard to re-find. I mean it's a ROGBIV white tree. Wrong...I couldn't find it. Then a few weeks back I remembered this dream tree and I went to work on finding it. Low and behold...there it was and BAM I pinned it.

Why did I go to all of this trouble you ask? Well because I wanted to recreate it. For someone who's always had a fresh cut tree (up until two years ago), this was an out of left field desire. I I needed to have this tree in my house.

So late last night the husband and I made a trip to the store so I could get my white tree. Getting me one step closer to to my dream. Then today I put it together. I just couldn't wait until after Thanksgiving.

Wow. I am so in LOVE with the tree. It's better than I expected it to be. In fact I can't stop looking at it.

It's exactly what I wanted and totally puts me in the mood for the holidays.

Now to just get the other holiday decorations out.


Beauty: Rainbow Connection

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me.



I seriously can't stop staring at my nails. They are amazing and it's all thanks to OPI putting out a line for the new Muppets movie. This is Rainbow Connection. It's full of multi color small round, medium hex and large hex glitter. It took three heavier coats to fill it out, but it's totally worth it. Just look at it! Indoors the silver glitter really pops, while in natural light the blue/green glitter stands out. It is a rainbow in a bottle.

Seriously...go get this if you can. It's flying off shelves and it's easy to see why!
