I also still use the Essie Smooth Trick cuticle oil on my cuticles. I love living without hang nails! I stil highly recommend the Essie oil, if you haven't tried it yet. It's around $8 at Target in the Essie nail polish section of the beauty department.
Picture #2: I finally go around to wearing the bridal favorite, "Bubble Bath" by OPI. The polish is a very sheer, ultra light pink. I used two full coats with Deborah Lippmann Ridge Filler Base Coat for Bubble Bath. I suggest using the ridge filler basecoat because it's dries a matte nude color making an excellent clean base for any sheer/jelly like polish! If I decide on wearing a French manicure in the future, Bubble Bath will be my base color! It's a very clean color, and it makes me feel slighly sophisticated for having well manicured, clean fingers. Remember when Mia met her Grandma for the first time in the Princess Diaries? Grandma: "You look so...young.." Mia: "You look so...clean..."
I love The Princess Diaries! It is still my favorite "happy" movie to watch as an adult. ^_^
In other news, my friends are opening their 6th Cherry de Pon Frozen Yogurt shop in Lakeland Town Center in Lake Land Hills (Auburn), Washington tomorrow! I didn't even know of the area until my friend took me out that way. It's such a nice area! It's full of newer gated residential communities. They also now carry Chocolate Rocks as a topping option at all their shops because of meee. :D
It's been really fun helping them look for new locations to expand. The other day, we went out to Snoqualmie Ridge to look at a space for the 7th shop. I absolutely love exploring the Greater Seattle area. I am so in love with our Summers here in the Pacific Northwest. You can't beat the mountain views, blue lakes, and green landscape in Washington State.
Next week my cousin C, and his friend are flying up here from CA to go to the Sounders vs. Chelsea soccer game. I'm assuming they're coming to see and cheer for the Chelsea team..and not the Seattle Sounders. lol The last time he visited Seattle..it was the middle of Winter. I hope he will have a better impression of Seattle now that it's Summer! In August, my parents and cousin Dr. T are headed out here from Michigan to attend Van's wedding, and to visit Minh and me. We're excited to introduce my parents to Minh's relatives, and our new friends. :)
Also, I've been a vegetarian for the past 5 days! I feel lighter, but then again it might just be in my head. lol The boyfriend has been vegetarian for the past 2-3 weeks. He convinced me to try it out for a month but really he just wants to eat off my plate. lol It's easier to share food now, yay! We needed a fun challenge, and it's really different (in a good way) to order from the vegetarian section of our fav restaurants. It's neat! :D I look forward to trying out this Viet restaurant called Moonlight this weekend! I hear it's dirty, but sometimes...the dirty restaurants make the best tasting food!
