My Favorite Simple Neutral Nails You’ll Have To Try

Having perfectly manicured nails is something I strive for. I often get asked about my nails and nail color so I want to share some neutral nails you’ll have to try the next time you get a manicure. There’s something so chic and elegant about neutral nails. I love how neutrals go with everything, doesn’t clash and is so flattering on a variety of skin tones. I’m known to rotate between some of my favorite colors, so chances are, one of these colors is on my nails!

What Actually Building Your First Home Is Like (Finding the House)

It still feels so surreal to say Johnny and I are building our first home. WOW. This home is years, if not decades in the making. It all started with our parents and their dedication to the American dream. When my family left communist Vietnam, they sought freedom, democracy, human rights and the opportunity to create a better life for me. That drive and fire were instilled in us to always work hard, save everything possible and be financially secure. It is wild this is currently our reality. If you’re new here, Johnny and I started dating in 2010 and we very quickly knew we would one day get married. Buying a home in Dallas has been our end goal for as long as I can remember. In this post, I’m excited to break down what actually building your first home is like.
