Happy Birthday To Meee!!! 
Guess what today is? 😉

The hubster and I tend not to make a big deal of birthdays unless there’s children involved. We mainly just give a lil something (if anything) and have or partake in a celebratory meal.  No big shin digs, nothing extravagant. Simpletons we are.

This year the wonderful hubster decided to send a super beautiful arrangement of long stem roses. Quite a shock as he’s not a flower giver nor am I one to request them. We both admire them but that’s about it. Like I said, quite a shock.  The florist wasn’t able to guarantee a delivery for today, even with an order placed in advance so these beautiful babies were delivered on Friday around dinnertime.

The arrangement was HUGE!
(almost as wide as my stairs)

Just gorgeous!
I love the aroma that they’re giving off – wonderful!

Also spent the day cooped up at home, hibernating from the cold snap we’re experiencing (temps of -13*C + windchill = -28*C = YIKES!) and decided to paint my nails.  I let a week pass by with nails ‘au naturel’.   Thought I’d give the whole ‘accent nail’ another try. Whatchas think about this combo?   You can read about my first attempt here.

Also being served up for dinner – chili (with an overload of veggies & beans).

I thought it was appropriate for an effin freezing day.  Don’t you?  Not sure what other surprises this day will hold but if you ask me, I’m OK with it.

Ever since having my nails done while on vacation back in Nov’2012, I find that I tend to keep my hands in better condition.  You know…keeping them moisturized, not tugging on or chewing hangnails etc.   Due to the fact that I had chosen a shellac mani, I needed to find time to have it removed which never seemed to pan out. I had that mani on for about a month!    Confessions of loving manicures here.

So here’s a shot of my own home mani complete with accent nail. I have no idea where/how this trend started but I thought I’d try my hand at it (pun intended!)  I love bold and bright colours but with never having experienced the accent nail, I thought I’d go subtle.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the accent nail?
