Actually it’s been double that, exactly 30 days, since I last updated this blog I just like that opening line from “Nothing Compares to You” by Sinead O’Connor. I wonder what she’s up to these days… Anyways, I hate the “soooo busy” excuse everyone throws out these days as if it’s a tangible excuse or reason to neglect something and even though it’s partially the reason why I haven’t been blogging as much, it’s hardly okay. I’ve always been a believe in people making time for the things they want to make time for and we all have 24 hours in the day, what we choose to do with those 24 hours is on us. One thing I manage to fit into my day on a near daily basis is a Starbucks run for tea, a Refresher beverage, or some tea-lemonade drink. Easy on the ice. Starbucks is right up there on my top 10 list of things I absolutely couldn’t live without along with my journal, nail polish, scented candles, and lip balm so it seems fitting that on the post to address my hiatus a Starbucks beverage, grande Cool Lime Refresher, would make it’s way into the picture.

Julie G Nails – Old San Juan from the Cruise Collection

Old San Juan from the Julie G Nails Cruise Collection is a bright orange coral that is more orange than coral. I really like how heavily pigmented the polish is without coming off as garishly tacky and cheap looking as I feel a lot of orange nail polishes end up looking. I was able to reach bottle color with just two coats and this may have been the polish that has ended my aversion to the color orange! I hope you all have been having a fantastic summer and I promise to be back to posting more frequently!
