Happy New Year, friends! I was hoping to get my first post of the new year up a little sooner, but life with a newborn has delayed a lot of things. This past week we've been enduring sleepless nights (which, I honestly wouldn't trade for the world, because it means more time with my sweet boy--but I digress), because we've been trying to get Bentley to get on a daytime/nighttime routine. It's super common for babies to be born completely mixed up on times, so it's taken us almost a month to get him to sleep properly. It's totally my fault since I just love, love snuggling him all day long, and I totally made it worse, but honestly, can you blame me?! I just love him so much and baby snuggles are by far my favorite thing ever. So, as you can see, I've been a little busy. 👶

Today, I wanted to share a new-to-me nail obsession and a darling blush cable knit cardi that's perfect for winter. It's cozy and who doesn't love a little pink in the wintertime?! Especially as Valentine's Day is coming up soon, too! I'm the type of girl that the moment Christmastime is over, I trade my Christmas plaid for blush--in style, beauty, and home decor. Blush and all-things light & bright pretty much take over my life. haha!

I recently picked up this darling color Essie--Into the A-Bliss. It is the perfect pinky-blush color. I love that it's not super nude and has more pink to it. A little pop of color in the wintertime is just what I need. As a base coat, I have a new-to-me must-have! The OPI Start To Finish Base Coat, Top Coat, and Strengthener has changed my nail game! Before using OPI Start To Finish, my nails would break so easily--I mean like at least one nail would break per day. Whether I'd chip it, crack it, or completely break it, I could never keep my nails looking nice for more than a day or two. Ever since I started to use it, my nails have been significantly stronger and I actually have to trim my nails back each week since they are growing for the first time in forever!

This nail combo will definitely be a staple through the winter and into spring.

Now, I just have to share more on my buttoned cardigan. It's is so soft and fuzzy! I love anything cozy in the wintertime, and the color is simply perfect. I have a white cami underneath, to be able to wear it open, but you could also button the cardi and wear it alone as well!

My arm candy (do people still call it that?!) is probably my favorite I've had in a long time. Mainly because I've been able to add my first real David Yurman bracelet to my collection!! This DY has such a special meaning to me and forever will because it was my push present! The blue topaz represents Bentley since he was born in December. Chris wanted to get me something that was going to last forever, and he knows I always wear a bracelet or two next to my watch, so this bracelet was more than perfect!

Do you love blush as much as I do during the wintertime?!
