DIY manicure of the week: shimmer nude

I wanted pretty neutral nails this last week so I wouldn’t have to change them every night to go with my outfits for San Antonio fashion week events.

French tips are the little black dress of nails; they go with everything! To add a little bit extra to mine while still keeping them neutral, I based coated them with a shimmer nude shade then French tipped them.

See’s Candies blogger event

I’m a little late on this post, it actually happened a few weeks ago, but I’ve been busy with San Antonio fashion week and freelance writing.

Here’s the scoop. See’s Candies, originally a California company, opened it’s first store in San Antonio and had a pre opening party, inviting some of San Antonio’s top bloggers.

Now me being born a Cali girl and having numerous memories of visiting the See’s Candies stores and leaving with delicious goodies, this was exciting for me!

Hubby and I took our middle mini, our 2 year old son River and went to eat as much chocolate as we could handle.

River might have had a little bit more then he could handle.  Can you tell he was “chocolate wasted” and having the best time ever!

We left with literally pounds of See’s signature chocolate and candy goodies, and I’m still excited to head back for more!
