Style Olympics

So I mentioned earlier that there's been a ton of Olympic nail art bouncing around and showed y'all a few examples and even tried my own. Apparently, there's been a nail salon put up in the Olympic Village called Nail Porn. Sounds like my kinda place. Here are a few more manis that aren't strictly USA themed

And of course a USA one:)

I was also telling you about the girl with the Old Glory sweater on and it kinda inspired me to find some more patriotic themed pieces.
 Ok so maybe these shorts don't exactly scream "USA!" but they're a good "Go for the Gold" reminder. Ok I love sparkles.
 Love these shorts!
How cool would this sweater be with a pair of white cuffed shorts?

And how amazing does Princess Kate look? So laid-back but still chic. Perfection.

Loving all the coverage, and excited for what I'll see tomorrow!

But before my last post of the night, I need to catch up on my Brit List. 3 days, 3 artists. Hmmmmm.
1)Ellie Goulding- "Starry Eyed" ( I really,really,really love Ellie. Love.)
2)Mumford and Sons- "After the Storm"( It always gives me a bit of peace. I love the whole song but especially this part "And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair."
3)Florence+the Machine "Cosmic Love" (Her voice seriously gives me chills. Love this woman.)

ohhh, Summer.

Today was my open house, and with every second I spent there, I became a bit more annoyed. If you've forgotten what open house is like let me refresh your memory: it's basically just a bunch of sweaty,confused, and anxious teenagers with their parents. Which is pretty similar to what school is actually like, but without the parents to corral them in. Fun,right? I really just don't know what to do with myself now that the twins have moved to Minnesota. I have Victoria, muh bestieee<3 but she'll be gone for half the day. But enough of my moping! We've got one more weekend for a beach trip. You know who's been doing beach style really well lately? Rihanna. I'm not really on the same page as Rihanna when it comes to style, but honestly, she's been wowing me with these vacation outfits

I think my favorite is the white Oscar de la Renta one-piece and what really makes it is the red lipstick. It's so Hollywood glamour.
So I planned out a little weekend getaway in my head and it includes
This longline bikini from Asos. I love the water color print:)
A beach blanket with a killer view. How convenient:)
And this guy. His name is Ryan Lochte, you might have heard of him. Happy birthday!

Perfect summer song? "Glad You Came" by The Wanted. Watch the video. Trust me,ok?

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Procrastination Nation

I am a procrastinator. I have been for some time now, and in some capacity, will probably always be. This is my really crappy excuse why I haven't updated in a few days. BUT I am going to make up for a it by writing a few posts tonight. A million things have been happening, thus requiring more than one post:)

To start things off: What kind of drugs are the people over at gymnastics on? I absolutely cannot believe Japan medaled over GB. It's kind of a joke, but a really un-funny one. Like are you serious? And I'm very sad the US men didn't place. Goodbye, Sam Mikulak. But console yourself with my suggested hookup of Missy Franklin. Feeling better already, aren't you? No? Ok, I understand.
Also, in the gymnastics corner, that one British guy has fantastic hurrr.

Like what's the situation here? Do you think he wears hats, or is he more of an earmuffs guy? Is that at all relevant?  I don't know. Probably not.

And YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! The Fab Five are kicking butt and taking names. Like just all over. I especially love their whole team spirit. Like in every interview they do, you can tell they're each fierce competitors, but also care equally about the team as a whole. I can feel the reality, like it's not staged. And I'm still head over heels for their hair&makeup. I've said it before& I'll say it again: I am a confirmed glitterholic.
Inspiring girls everywhere to put it in a pony.

And now(drumroll please) time for my favorite part of the night: SWIMMING. I honestly just think it's safe to say a have a legit obsession. Pause while I google the dictionary definition of "Obsession."
So along with some very seductive Calvin Kelin ads, I found this:
the domination of one's thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, imagedesire, etc.
Um, yup that sounds about right. So, of course, our guys have been pretty much dominating thanks to these guys.

Matt Grevers
Ryan Lochte
Michael Phelps aka the new world record holder in Olympics medals. Normal Guy Stuff.
I don't remember who's won what since I last posted, but it's safe to say we're doing pretty good. And in hindsight, I'm not sure why my newfound love for the sport, but maybe something to do with the half-nakedness? Not sure, but that is probably a factor.
And on the womens side: A Gold!
My theory: they're mermaids.
Also, I just really want to have a dance party with Missy Franklin.
That's all from the athletic perspective,now for the real fun;)
