feet around the world project, take #1

happy feet day!
(actually taken last thursday when the sun was beaming after 4 consecutive days
of rain & gloom. a reward for my bare toes indeed!)


coral toesies + h&m kids gold flats (i really am a 12 year old child)

mike preferred bare legs over feeties this day

reach for the sky, wave them feets up high!

Post inspired by this lovely lady :)
Lazy days by the lake just blocks from Mike's house are certainly one of my favorite things to look forward to for all of spring/summer. Hope the sun is shining bright for all your Tuesdays as well!

Oh, and for those of you who asked about my watermelon nails in my last post
, there's not really much to it other than this:

1) paint a regular pink coat onto your nails first, then wait to dry
2) make sure you have a dark enough green for the tips, you'll still probably have to do a double coating
3) once the pink and green are dried, draw on "seeds" with an ordinary permanent marker
4) finish it all off with a heavy top coat

And voila! haha, sorry if that doesn't help too much, but I'm not a fan of overly complex work anyways. Experimenting with funky nails just makes me happy so I don't mind putting in the extra "work," but if you still feel like you can't do this on your own but want this for your own nails - just ask your local nail salon to do it for you! Voila #2 :)

  8. sounds neat! and I'm not an overly complex person as well. I agree that asian hair is difficult to curl. even when I curl it itgoes back to straight in a few hours or it looses its curlyness!

  9. Yay, thanks for the watermelon nail pointers :) I wasn't sure if the black 'seeds' were another nail polish or something else. And I'm loving your feet ... that sounds very fetish-like, but I swear, I'm just appreciating the way you're waving your feet in the air like you just don't care ;)

    And we need to make a list of awesome quotes from "Hot Tub Time Machine", there's too many :)
