Last year, udon noodle soup was my staple and I ate it nearly every day. I made it last week for the first time in ages and I’m putting it back in as a staple dish. Yum! I absolutely love it.
I picked up another Essie polish in the shade Eternal Optimist. This is very similar to OPI’s Dulce de Leche, which is a favorite of mine but kind of a shame. Although it does have a tad more pink than Dulce de Leche, I thought it would be on the lighter side and it came out quite dark.
My BFF sent me a package! Everything inside had an incredibly personal and sentimental meaning. I laughed. I cried. I held a physical book instead of an e-reader for the first time in ages. And this is why I have the best BFF in the world.
I worked on my wedding website for what seemed like every single second I had free. I fixed up the header and I’m nearly done with the informational pages. I’m putting a lot of love into this simple thing, as you can imagine! I drew a lot of the design by hand, when I would normally just use freebies. Here is a tiny preview. It’s not perfect, but I can live with it. (Perfectionist here…)
Updated my iMac to Mountain Lion, which made me happy. Having my phone, tablet, and computer syncing effortlessly is beyond amazing. I feel like my “computer” is everywhere with me, at all times. My fiancé says it’s creepy, but I say who cares. It’s so convenient! Apple, you have my soul.
Hope everyone else had a great week!

I usually don’t pick up on trends, but I’ve been into nail polishes a lot lately and wanted to share spring colors. These are my favorite three shades I’m seeing worn, pictured in magazines, and being talked about. Remember, you can always substitute brands. The important thing here is the color! Anything pastel, white, or even nude is in this season.
What are your favorite shades for three trends? Leave a comment below! I’m especially looking to purchase a new white, so give me some recommendations!
Dulce de Leche by OPI: A perfect nude shade for those with fair to medium skin tones, matches with everything this season. When having doubts choosing a color that won’t clash with an outfit, this is the one to go with!
Similar alternative: Tickle Me France-y by OPI
White Tip by Sally Hansen: There are many wonderful shades of white out there, but this is all I have at the moment. White is the new black for this season! Expect to see a lot of lighter shades. Like black, white gives an indie sort of look and makes a statement.
Similar alternatives: Alpine Snow by OPI, Frosty by China Glaze, Marshmallow by Essie
Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen: A light mint or even a pastel mint shade seems to be popular for the spring. I’m seeing a lot of it in magazines. This is such a fun color you can experiment with!
Similar alternatives: Get in Lime by OPI, Mint Candy Apple by Essie, Re-Fresh Mint by China Glaze
