This summer has been cray-cray for Goldiluxe! We've been designing our little tushies off and Allison and I decided that after all the summer hoopla we would schedule a "Treat Yo'Self" day inspired by one of our favorite shows, Parks and Recreation. Last Sunday, we finally got to have our fun. We went to brunch at Trocadero (which was ah-MAH-zing, beeteedubs...) and then headed over to Polished Nail Bar for much needed manis.
Sadly, I didn't get the chance to get any pics of our brunch, awful blogger that I am. But, let me tell you, I had the breakfast tacos, a killer Kir Royale, and a fruit plate I shared with Allison. The portion size was perfect. I am a small plate fan, in general, so I was delighted that my tacos were sized as such. Our fruit plate was wonderfully fresh and flavorful. We were given attentive service and the atmosphere of the restaurant was light, fun and relaxed. A perfect place for a wedding day brunch! I kept imaging a happy bridal party, adorned in smart outfits and stylish accessories sipping mimosas contentedly on the spacious patio. Seriously, if you haven't been to Trocadero, check 'em out.
From there, we took a short hop over to Polished. From the outside it's pretty cute. It sits upon what used to be a copy shop. A nail bar, of course is a HUGE improvement in my book.
|Pretty chandies, am I right?!|
|I was super happy to see they carried Essie. It's one of my favorite brands.|
|More adorableness. The light fixtures in that joint were KILLING me.|
As for the shellac? I LOVE it! I'm over a week in and my nails look the same as on day one!
Pretty great, right! That coral polish really is the living end, isn't it?! A big thank you to Polished for allowing me to get all up in their biz. I had a wonderful experience. I do hope that, if you're in the market for a cute place and great staff, you'll give Polished a whirl. Ooh, also, for more pictures of Polished cuteness, check out the gallery.
This post was not solicited or compensated by Polished in any way. I had a really positive experience and thought I'd show a little love.
