this much [22 mos] | Personal Project

I love this age. Can I just tell you, that although almost two is exhausting, it is ridiculously fun!! She walks. She talks [a lot]. She sasses me back. She shoots me dirty looks. She tells me she loves me. She gives me giant hugs. & she is into ALL things girly. I am made to be a girly mama. Heaven help me if I am ever blessed with a little boy. I am so not into swords and pirates. Power tools, sure, but I much prefer doing hair & nails & wearing dresses. Thank goodness I have a little one who is interested too! :)

I decided it was high time for her first pedi. I am not one for getting my nails done, I usually do them myself, so of course, I was going to do the honor. :) Thanks to many suggestions on the styleberry facebook page, I landed on the “formaldehyde, toluene, phthalate & camphor free” nailpolish brand Zoya to make her piggies pink. I found it locally at our whole foods in a HUGE display of gorgeous, vibrant colors. & two weeks later, her pedi is still intact! Highly recommend! :) I might even give up my beloved OPI for this glossy, quick drying stuff. The colors were to die for. I let her pick & she chose “max.” Beautiful choice, my dear.

& of course, toes weren’t enough…she begged for fingers too. Mama’s not quite ready for that. Just toes…for now. :)

& holy cow, this is late. I usually aim for the 8th of the month (her birthday is 8.8) so I can grab her at exact monthly intervals. But life is so busy right now! Who is still along for the ride? It’s never too late! What is my [this much] personal project?

Mother’s Day (or anytime, really) goodies will be here next week! Along with some other fun things…like DIY no-sew blackout curtains! :)

  • thalla-Marie Choxi - O I must have missed that post on fb, I just ordered some Zoya online after much debated (free shipping coupon helped) if you fan them on Facebook you’ll find amazing deals very often. I ordered the remover as well and really like it! Sephora carries Zoya as well and sometime offers coupons :)ReplyCancel
