Watching The Jersey Shore is completely exhausting (but yet strangely hard to resist). And with all of the underwear flashing that’s been happening over the past few eps, it’s also been quite gross.
I want to stop, but I almost feel like I’ve already invested so much time in following these goofy characters that I can’t quit now. And, truth be told, I’m also weirdly fascinated by Ronnie’s unique outlook on dance.
He’s not the nicest boy in the world (that’s one way to put it), but I gotta give it up to the guy for taking his club moves so seriously.
Lately he’s been doing this one thing where he puts his hand in front of his face and wiggles it side to side really fast, like “Peek-a-boo!”
I started trying to work it into my own living room dance moves…but with a makeup and beauty twist. That’s Essie’s Cocktail Bling collection for winter on my nails (available in six shades; $8 each).
Essie Cocktail Bling colors from the left: School of Hard Rocks (creamy grayish green), Brooch the Subject (creamy pinkish beige with a touch of gray), Bangle Jangle (cool, creamy amethyst), Bobbing for Baubles (creamy blackish sapphire), Cocktail Bling (creamy periwinkle gray) and Size Matters (creamy ruby red)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. How’s it going today? It’s going pretty well out here. It’s raining! Yup, the first real rain of the season. On the bright side, the plants are getting their drank on, so the hills should be nice and green soon.
