Nibbles N' Nails

These days, I don't really get much time to myself. Between the kids, my husband, friends, running a business, oh and LIFE (!!) it's kinda hard to ever just sit back and relax.

In an effort to avoid burning out, I decided to carve out some time for me and my girlfriends whom are all in the same boat to enjoy a few moments to ourselves.

I booked a babysitter and asked my husband to make plans with friends so I could go into this knowing everyone is looked after.

I thought, it would be nice to pamper everyone with nibbles n nails. So I went over to my local Walgreens and searched for the essentials: Chocolate, nail polish and ice.

Ice????

Yes. The weather just took a crazy turn and it is now 90 degrees out there! We are going to enjoy ICE COFFEE!

When it comes to chocolate, my preference is milk and I love a crunch to it. I recently tried NESTLĖ Damak®  and was in instant heaven. This chocolate is brand new to the U.S., and actually hard to find sometimes as it's so popular! This Turkish chocolate is the perfect combination of creamy chocolate and savory pistachios. Definitely the indulgent snack that I was looking for. And to make sure I satisfied the likes of all of my guests, I got a mix of milk and dark chocolate.

I set the table with succulents and greenery making it feel relaxed and inviting. I set out an ombre of nail polishes, cotton balls and nail files for the gals to help themselves to manicures.

We enjoyed every second of this "time for ourselves" brunch and couldn't have been happier to nosh on chocolate and paint our nails.
