Steve Madden Cabaret Party with Keiko Lynn!

Last week, Alex was in town and we went to a couple fun events together!  First up was the Steve Madden Cabaret Party with Keiko Lynn.  I was feeling really tired that day and almost didn’t go, but I’m so glad that Alex convinced me to come out because I had so much fun!  Keiko’s blog was one of the very first that I started reading/following and I think she has amazing style, so it was really cool to meet her in person!  Keiko was so very sweet and greeted us right when we arrived at the party and made sure we felt welcome- what a great host!  Alex, her friend Shivani, and I had a great time sipping cocktails, getting our makeup done, and of course, hamming it up in front of the photobooth!  Alex and I have decided that it isn’t really a party without a photobooth; seriously, it is so much fun to grab all of the props and go crazy taking pictures! ;)

Check back later in the week to hear more about the other event Alex and I went to! :)

On Nnenna’s Nails #3: Silver Sparkle

silver sparkles nails 1 glitter

I’m back at it with the glitter nail polish!  This was one of those lazy manicures- I started with this awesome silver color by Zoya Nail Polish that I picked up during Blogger’s Night Out.  Zoya Nail Polish is seriously amazing: it glides on so smoothly, looks fantastic with just one coat, is not too thick, and lasts for days!  I was going to stop there, but then I decided to jazz it up with this glitter polish.  I love the big glitter flakes and also how they are scattered sort of randomly- it’s like someone threw little confetti on to my fingers and they stuck!

Hope you guys have a great weekend!  Anybody have fun weekend plans?  Also, if you follow me on twitter or instagram, you know that I went to a couple of fun events this week, so check back next week for recaps! :)
