Plaid Flannel Shirt

Happy Thanksgiving week! Cheers to a short work-week for those of us in the States! Although I worked a 12 hour shift yesterday and work a 24 today... it's all good.

Work It Wednesday No.21

Time for another edition of Work It Wednesday! For those of you just joining us this is a link up for professional clothes that's appropriate for work, but far from boring! We inspire each other with chic looks for the office or whatever the professional setting is. Please join us!
F21 top, Asos pants, Target bag, TJ Maxx pumps 

My favorite look from our last Work It Wednesday link up was the lovely Bri from Work Clothes, I Suppose! I am absolutely loving her look- the animal print in muted colors is still work appropriate, and the way she paired it with a knee length skirt, pointy toe flats, and that chic top knot was just perfect! Great look Bri!
Link up your own look below to give us some more work wear inspiration and a chance to be featured in our next link up! As always thanks for reading!!

Did you get a chance to check out my fall half moon nail tutorial I posted yesterday? Sadly I've already had to remove it because you can't wear nail polish into the operating room, but I enjoyed my gorgeous manicure while it lasted!

PS - Work it Wednesday WILL be happening this Wednesday so get your work looks ready and share them with us! As always thanks for reading.

Fall Half Moon Nail Tutorial

After putting up this picture on my Instagram yesterday (follow me @lauralacquer) I got a few requests to do a tutorial, so without further ado, here it is! My fall half moon manicure, featuring two of my favorite colors for fall - oxblood/burgundy and gold!
Hope you all are having relaxing weekends!

DIY Rustic Dining Table

I mentioned last month how I was sick of my dining table. I was ready for something new but wasn't willing to pay $700 for a new West Elm table. Using this inspiration and the materials above, I made my own for less than $150! 
I had the wood cut at Lowe's and bought the pipes the perfect height so all I had to do was attach them to the flanges. I aligned the 3 large slabs of wood, secured them with 3 smaller pieces (make sure your screws are long enough, but not long enough to drill through the top of your table!), attached the flanges at 4 corners, spray-painted the pipe legs gold, then sanded and stained the table. Voila!
Perfect size for the nook in my apartment! 
Hope this post inspires some of you ladies to make your own too! Happy Friday!

Green Sweater

Happy Wednesday! Although I shy away from politics I have to say that last night was an amazing night for women in this country. Congrats to Obama for his re-election, to Tammy Baldwin for her election to Senate (and being a Smithie and openly gay), and to Elizabeth Warren, the first woman to represent Massachusetts in Senate. And now to our normal schedule :)

Tuesday Getaway

Imagine this: cozying up to a hot cup of dark chocolate cocoa wrapped in a soft blanket sinking in on a cozy couch, the sound of the fire crackling, the smell of wood burning, in this room.
Ok now back to your normal Tuesday ;)
