The Monday Mani #5



This week color of choice is Essie's beautiful After School Boy Blazer. Such a dark navy color that it borders on black. Included in the fall 2013 collection, I fell in love with it upon first look. I also managed to score it when it was on special offer, 30% off baby!

We've just closed off the first week of creating our second magazine. I had to interview a young skydiver who's been involved in the sport since a very early age. It was really cool getting an insight in what drives a person to seek that kind of rush. Even if I am the biggest chicken on earth, I kind of want to jump out of a plane now. 


1. Typical Monday morning spent with music, coffee and blogging 2. A look at the blog posts from last week 3. The boyfriend making me bacon pancakes for dinner 4. Happy surprise when I discovered my city now has a Benefit counter 5. Our first magazine, finished! 6. A feast fit for a carnivore! Mom and dad's 26th wedding anniversary, me and my brother took them out for dinner 7. All black, even my coffee cup agrees 8. Milk bubble tea. Mango and strawberry boba!

Right now I am working on my article. Almost ready to hand it in and start considering the layout. Working on these products is so excited. I love holding the magazine in my hand when it rolls out of the printer.
