My Baptism

My baptism was back in January and I never got around to posting about it. I have always been a Christian but I decided to take the next step and get baptized. This meant so much to me and I loved that a few members of my family were willing to make the trip to see it happen. It feels so good to have loved ones witness my acceptance of my Lord and Saviour into my life. My mom couldn't find the "zoom in" feature on my new camera in the heat of the moment so that is a teeny tiny me and a teeny tiny preacher standing at the very back under the gold cross.

Review: Essie Big Spender

Excuse any imperfections, I've been wearing this color for a few days and it's lasted through a brutal weekend. Note to self - paint nails after cleaning the apartment from now on. This is a great magenta color with beautiful shine. I love how rich the color is, it looks great on pale skin but honestly I think it would work just as well with deeper skin tones. The photo was taken with two coats of polish and one thin coat of Sally Hansen MegaShine top coat.
