Fun times with @BariBeauty and @RimmelLondonUS

I usually stick to shades of red or pink when it comes to nail polish, but as I was brushing my teeth the other day, I glanced over at my lil basket of nail polish and there were a few Bari Cosmetics nail polishes that I hadn’t tried yet, that caught my eye… especially the glittery one, that one really caught my eye. I also had a cute pink Rimmel London nail polish that I hadn’t tried yet, so I figured, since I was in the mood to “explore” nail polish, why not invite it to the “party.”

I have to say I gotten way better with painting my own finger nails, it’s usually quite disastrous and messy lol, so I’m quite pleased with the end result ūüôā

peace and love

Self-serve froyo with @myorangeleaf

There’s Pinkberry, there’s Red Mango, there’s Yogurtland…and I just recently discovered Orange Leaf!

Frozen yogurt is my new obsession, especially with places like Orange Leaf. You pick your own flavor(s) and how much you want, add toppings from the many choices you can pick from, and weigh & pay!

I had mango flavor with strawberries, blackberries, and oreos. Super delicious (& healthy, minus the oreos hehe). This is definitely my new go-to place in Andover, MA.


Don’t know which flavor to choose? Ask for a sample! You can find a list of locations on their website. Hopefully there is one near you!
