As I Cee It

Day 19: Holiday Nails
Here’s another way to jazz yourself up for the holidays. I wanted something festive for one of our family parties. Unfortunately when I went looking for a metallic gold nail polish, I couldn’t find one that wasn’t $10 or more. Instead, I picked up a sparkly gold $5 choice from the Maybelline section and decided to pair it with a red I already own.

It took some getting used to, but I think I like it. Please ignore the actual state of my nails.

Red: Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Stiletto Red
Gold: Maybelline Color Show Jewels in Gilded in Gold

Day 17: Christmas Tree

This tree has actually been decorated for over a week now. I was originally going to do a before and after. Clearly, I did not. I didn’t get any pictures of the tree or decorating process. So what I’m left with to share is the final version. I’m a big fan of the tree this year. I feel like it came out really well and if ever there was a year where I needed a well put together tree, this was it.

There are more gifts under there than what’s shown. The right side has a stack obscured by the huge bag in the front. By the day after Christmas, there will hardly be anything under there. It seems that the gifts that come in are a lot smaller than those that go out. Not that I’m complaining.

I hope your tree came out gorgeous!


Day 16: What Cee Wants

We’ve talked about what to get mom, ideas for a teenage boy, your creative friend and your hip friend. Now, I’ll share a few things on my wishlist this year.

  1. “The Lina” Personalized Stationery – As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I love stationery. This one happens to be absolutely adorable. The fact that I can get it personalized just makes it ten times better.
  2. Prada Candy perfume – I enjoy a sweet smelling perfume. This one is a new favorite of mine. And likely the only Prada item I’ll ever own.
  3. Because of Them We Can Backpack – This is something I wanted and actually received this year. My hip chick friend and I exchanged gifts last weekend (I did get her that record player) and I opened my bag to reveal this! I’m incredibly pleased and I cannot wait to go on a trip and take it with me.
  4. Crochet Set – I started crocheting. While I’m not good at it, I do like it. I find it relaxing. If I do happen to get better at it, that’ll just be icing on the cake.
  5. Just Dance 2016 – I don’t really know or care what it says about me, but I love this series. Sometimes if I’ve had a bad day, I come home, change my clothes and dance it out. It helps…except that time I practically threw my back out. We’re not going to talk about that.
  6. Kindle books (not pictured) – It sounds lame, I know. This isn’t the most fun gift to give, but it is great to receive. I love reading and since I’ve owned Kindles for the last four years, the number of actual print books I read has dwindled to maybe five per year. Toni always comes through with one of these for my birthday and for Christmas and I am excited about it every time.
