Let me just start off by saying-there is a marsh fire going on right now here locally. It has been going on now for the past couple of days. From what I understand, whatever is burning, a certain type of plant, can smolder for weeks. So there is no real clarity in when it will be cleared up. It is surrounded by water though, so the mayor isn't all too worried about it. However, the smoke is killin' me! Due to the wind this morning, the smoke was pushed into my parish. It was so hazy outside! And when the bell rang for lunch and we went outside, the smell was almost unbearable! Literally. I still smell like smoke. My hair, my clothes, everything. But the wind has taken it elsewhere now. So that's good. However, we had a few people affected at our school-the smoke was really messing with their asthma. I wish I would've had my camera at school to take a picture to show y'all! Right now i'll just show y'all some pictures I found on the internet from our local news channel.

Don't they look so pretty in the light!
|The light was hitting it perfectly. Love!|
|Ahh! Beautiful glitter!|
|Love the golden shimmer in this one! Can't wait to try it.|
Now for my actual manicure. As a base I chose OPI's French Quarter for Your Thoughts from the Touring America Collection. Once that was on I thought it needed a little something extra. Therefore, I topped it off with my new I Juggle Men. Let me just say, first, that FQFYT applied wonderfully! It was two easy coats.

In other exciting news before I go-
I have an order from Forever 21 coming. It's 3 articles of clothing and 3 polishes. Yay! They really are some beautiful polishes. I can't wait to see them in person and share them with you all!
Plus, when I was still in Tennessee, my Aunt ordered off of Amazon 5 more polishes for me! They were ones that we weren't able to find at The Cosmetic Market. She also ordered me the most beautiful pair of cowgirl boots :) She texted me just a little while ago and told that the package should be to me by Thursday. I am so excited! She's the best!
I was typing this all so fast. I hope I don't have too many spelling/grammar mistakes! Let me know what you think about all of this. Or any of it! Or none of it!
