OPI Mad as a Hatter from the Alice in Wonderland Collection. I loved looking at my nails all today.
They sparkled and shined.

I was a hit with the girls in my class.

I do have one problem. The polish had worn off at the tips by the end of the day. I have 3 coats of polish and 1 coat of a top coat. Maybe using more top coats may have prevented the flaking off. If you have worn glitter polish and know how to keep it on, please share.
Thanks and have a great evening!

Outfit of the Day 4/29/10

One of my students asked me today "Why did you wear your pajamas to school?"

Love this and I don't know why I wore it with the outfit today.

The bottom are suede material and shows dirt. Yuck!
My day ended at the ball fields again. Tomorrow going out to dinner with my in-laws and another baseball game Saturday afternoon.
One more day to the weekend!

Outfit of the Day 4/28/10

We are having a new school built. My school is over 50 years and with the bond money they are rebuilding many of the schools in my district. Well, the new school will be ready to move into Memorial Day weekend. We have to have our boxes packed and ready before we leave that Friday. See that orange closet behind me? Well, I have 5 double door closets with additional space up towards the ceiling and they are full with 18 years of teaching stuff. I have a month to go through and toss or pack what I want. I received 4 boxes so far to pack my items in. Do you think they don't want us taking our junk into the new building? Top-Walmart, fall '09
Skirt-Walmart, fall '09
Sandals-DSW, fall '09
Necklace and Bracelet-Tori Spelling via HSN

I love these sandals they look like Brightons but cost much less. I put them on top of my file cabinets for the picture. I have 5 file cabinets to go through as well.
I am going to busy. Hope you had a great day!

Outfit of the Day 4/21/10

I am so tired! We had a meeting after school to go over the procedures for next weeks state testing. The meeting was long. Black knit cardigan-Walmart, old

Lipstick cami-Torrid, Feb '10

Gray pants-JCPenney, Jan'10

Python Shoes-Avenue, Mar '10

Necklace-Self made, Nov '09


Ring-James Avery, gift

I can't believe I made this. I attended a jewelry making class with a girlfriend and we each made a necklace. The hardest part was deciding colors and placement of the beads.

Love this bracelet and wear it often. The ring was a gift from my sweetie and wear it daily.

Close up of cami and nails.

My killer shoes! They stretched out and they kept slipping off my heels. I need to get some insole inserts to see if that will help. I will be sad if I have to give them away.
After work today I popped into Payless because it's BOGO time and was looking for some cut,e fun shoes to wear for earth day tomorrow. And I left with 2 new pairs of black shoes. I spied some jewelry that I may go back and get in the near future.
Hope you had a great day!
