Valentine's Day Get-Together & Mani

Over the weekend, Cee of Coco and Vera hosted a pre-Valentine's Day blogger get-together. It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday... chatting with some lovely ladies over a big bottle of wine and an array of sweet snacks.

L-R: Randa, Cee, Leonie, Veronika, me, and Alicia

Thanks to Cee and Randa for these photos!

Of course, I can't let a holiday pass without some appropriately themed nail art. Compared to last year's somewhat ridiculous Valentine's Day mani, however, I did decide to keep my nails a bit more subdued this year.

My bf and I usually don't do anything super fancy but I am looking forward to whatever little surprise he's got planned. I know that many people do not celebrate Valentine's given the whole rampant commercialization factor, but for those that do, Happy Valentine's Day
