wedding polish.

the hunt has begun for the perfect nail color for the big day.

since hearing of kate middleton's classic, chic combo she wore for her nuptials, i've been rather obsessed with the idea of finding the perfect mix for my skin tone. as i already have some possible polishes in my possesion, i thought i'd include them on the wishlist of lacquers to try out.
as i try these different colors out, i'll post photos of what they look like on my hands, up next to my skin tone. and hopefully - hopefully - this will aid me in this momentous decision.

Soo pretty, I love this idea! I'm actually wearing Essie Ballet Slippers today for the first time and love it :)
They are all so different! ;) I'm leaning towards the Imported Bubbly, but I do like a nice Matte color like Hopelessly in Love :)

I can't wait to see them on!
These are all gorgeous shades! Great picks, I'm not sure how you will be able to decide!

I love Essie's Ballet Slippers. It's such a flattering pale color.
What a fun decision to make! I love how all of the polish names sounds so delicate and feminine!

What a fun decision! I am a bright red OPI girl myself {currently wearing I'm Not Really a Waitress} and I have to say, I always imagined that I'd wear red on my wedding day. Then I realised how much it'd distract from everything - pale is the way to go. I just got Ballet Slippers for Christmas, my first ever pale shade and my first ever Essie. I hear it's brilliant! Can't wait to see the different shades on you!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
