Have you tried Zoya polish??? Well I got some awhile back. Probably in the winter, but I hadnt used any of them yet. So last week I was tired of all my regular rotational products and decided to dig out some of my other colors. I found all my Zoya colors I had. I chose "Raven" to try. It lasted less than 24 hours and totally peeled off. So my review on Zoya is, Its NOT for me :( Sucks bc I have about 6 colors but I dont think I will be using it again. Bummer. The next day I used Essie, Licorice and its been over 48hours and no chips. So It has to be the Zoya formula and my nails dont mesh. Here is a before and after picture of my nails.

Did you see my curls last week? Well I was going for this look. But ended up with this look....... and here is the actual pictures of me!
It was fun to have a different style for the day! And I got lots of compliments! Thanks to everyone again for the nice compliments. So now I need to go out and purchase a much smaller curling iron to get the look I was really looking for. And if you try it, Happy Curling to you!
Happy Sunday to all my blog friends, all 39 of you! Hopefully I will make it to 50 soon but Im just really not feeling it. Today, Eli and I was up and at em early bc it has been sooo hot here in the sunny sunny phoenix, Az. I wanted to beat the heat for a nice long walk, and that is what we did. I listened to some tunes on siriusxm on the iphone app. If you have a subscription, and didnt know it, its a free app and you should definitely take advantage of it! Works on iphone and ipad and I believe other smart phones as well. After our walk, it is routine on sunday, Eli and I go for a starbucks run. But today there is a place on the corner that had a coupon in the paper for a free beverage so we went to the corner to B.L.D. and got a free 20 oz. beverage. The barista recommended a frappe vanilla caramel, and so yummy! I will definitely go back and try their smoothies and maybe the vanilla iced coffee. Its an actual restaurant, B.L.D. With a drive thru for drinks only, kinda a cool concept. However I wish they sold pasteries or bagels, or even a breakfast sandwich thru the drive thru!
O and did I mention, that I am loving this pretty blue nail polish. I have re-done my nails in the color a few times now :) It is Essie Mesmerize...........
Well the pictures are not that great, its pics with my iphone so this is the best I got. It is definitely not as dull as it apears in the pic. Its not super dark but not really bright either. Its a perfect blue :)
One more thing, before I run. I had a hair appt yesterday and on my way, I wanted an ice cold refreshing beverage so I pulled into starbucks and tried one of the new Very Berry Hibiscus drinks, D~E~L~I~S~H, recommend you try it for sure. Apparently it is made from coffee beans, it is not tea but is a fruity drink with caffeine.

I thought I'd share a few iphone pics with you guys! I didn't do too much this weekend. But to me, thats ok. I love hanging out at home with my "Lovey" and Mr Eli FLuffy! It was a chill weekend in the A/C avoiding the HOT HOT HOT AZ weather.
First up, A few cute pics of my little doggie, a.k.a Mr Eli Fluffy ...............
Next, A few pics of my weekend fashion. I watched a YT video on a very fun curly hair style. I wanted my hair to do the same but, #fail. Bc I did not have the right size curling iron so I used what I had and this is what I got. Along with some pretty Essie blue nails. And lastly, my wrist bling, Dillon Rogers leather wrap, Michael Kors watch, and a silver heart "L" bracelet from my parents..............
This week we had a unique storm called a Haboob.
The following was copied from WIkipedia:
A haboob is a type of intense sandstorm commonly observed in arid regions throughout the world.In the USA, they are frequently observed in the deserts of Arizona, including Yuma and Phoenix, as well as New Mexico and Texas. During thunderstorm formation, winds move in a direction opposite to the storm's travel, and they will move from all directions into the thunderstorm. When the storm collapses and begins to release precipitation, wind directions reverse, gusting outward from the storm and generally gusting the strongest in the direction of the storm's travel.
Pictures from my patio.........
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

I decided since I am CONSTANTLY changing my nail color, I'd add the colors to my blog for all to see. Hope you will enjoy it. My color this week was "turquoise and caicos". I actually purchased this color last year and didn't use it until now. I didn't LOVE it but I did get many compliments on it. I will use the color again. Maybe in the fall or spring.

We watched "Country Strong" last night. I thought it was a fantastic movie! Loved every bit of it. Thumbs up for sure. If you havent seen it yet, you need to see this one. I was told Id need a box if tissue close by. I didnt really need the tissue but it definitely did have some very sad parts but there was some happiness that made up for it. Put this one on your list to see.
My 4th of July weekend will consist of hanging with my "Lovey" and chillin with my Eli. We had a groupon to use up so Aaron aka "Lovey" drove to phoenix and picked up these .......
And this afternoon we got up and went out for a family treat. And starbucks was in the 4th of July spirit with Red and Blue Whip Cream .....
Hope you all are having a fantastic Saturday! We are and we are also having a few added calories this weekend. Its a Holiday, good excuse right? :)
