Fun Snow Day with Lilly: Pup Photography

This past week's snow storm was the first time I had my camera and my pup in the same place, so naturally I wanted to get some pictures of Lilly in the snow. Here are just a couple of pictures  I was able to take before all the snow melted once it warmed up.

Enjoy!

Engagement Photo Shoot and a Red Dress from Rent the Runway

I should have been a housewife

Nick and I had our engagement shoot last weekend and I couldn't be happier with how the pictures came out. Our photographer was great and super accommodating (we had to change days and adjust around our work schedules due to the weather) and the castle we did our shoot at was the perfect location.

I decided to rent a red dress from Rent the Runway because 1. I wanted to offset the drab colors of a New Jersey winter and 2. I'm still partially living out of suitcases and can't find half of my clothes anyway. The dress retails for $425 but for around $50 I was able to rent it and it was shipped right to my door. I actually signed up for a year membership which only costs about $5 more than paying for the insurance and shipping separately, so I was one happy camper. I plan on doing the same thing for my shower, bachelorette party, and rehearsal dinner that way I don't have to shell out a ton of cash on dresses I might only be able to wear a couple of times. You can find out more about them and browse dresses on their website.

But enough of that, here are just a few of the photographs from our session.

Scented Nail Polish-The Future is Here!

So I accidentally stumbled upon scented nail polish last night while shopping at CVS. I bought it at first because I liked the color and I didn't realize it was scented. During application is has a fruity, bubble gum scent and so far has lasted through the night. I didn't have time to put my top coat on last night so I'm not sure of that would have an effect on the scent (I assume it would mask it a little). I also didn't check to see of they had a scented clear coat, or if all the nail polishes are scented the same.

More to come once I investigate further

Update: the scent lasts for a couple of days, If you want to keep the scent just add a new coat every couple of days
