Sally Hansen Salon Gel Nail Polish Review

The other weekend I was planning on finally going and getting my nails done. I’m seriously such a cheapskate when it comes to certain things, and I always hating wasting money on getting nails when I can paint them myself. Not well, but that’s besides the point.

Fall Ankle Booties

It was on my bucket list to find some great new boots for fall this month. I haven’t had the best luck in completing that one. There were so many deals for labor day, but I just couldn’t decide.
