Nautical by Nature

It is very much summer time here in Hawaii, and needless to say, going to the beach is definitely a summer staple.  Therefore, I made a trip out to the beach, but instead of swimming, I wandered about exploring the shoreline (just wasn't in a swimming mood that day).  Even though it was hot out, I managed to be perfectly comfortable in the tan jeans I wore, mostly because I paired it with a it was definitely nice and breezy.  I was going for a pretty nautical look, with the thick blue and white stripes, along with the accents of tan/camel, and tried to keep my accessories true to the look as well.  I personally love nautical elements, and it's very exciting bringing them out to use for the warmer months, so I'll definitely be making lots of use of them, especially the silver seahorse necklace I'm wearing in this look...I'm absolutely in love with it.  I'm hoping to have more summer outfits, as well as beauty things to share very soon both posted here and in videos on my YouTube channel.  All photos taken by Reisha.  =]

Mani(c) Monday - June 3, 2013

I feel like it has seriously been an entire month since I've done by nails...since I've been incredibly caught up in things and either too lazy or exhausted to do em.  Nonetheless, here's a new nail post for you all.  This time I have on Tart Deco by Essie, an electric neon coral shade, that can look quite pinky in some lighting.  I am absolutely in love with this shade, particularly since it is transitioning from spring to summer.  At first, I was a little hesitant to wear such a bright color on my nails, but I fell absolutely in love with it, and would highly recommend this shade.  I also featured this polish in my spring essentials, so you can check that out (here) if you haven't already.  Hoping to be more consistent in getting these nail posts up, so look out for more very soon.  All photos taken by me.  =]
