On Friday I got my nails done because I wanted to treat myself to something! I have not had a manicure and pedicure in well over three months because I was used to just painting my own nails. I went to my local Aveda salon and received a Spa manicure and pedicure. I love Aveda salons for multiple reasons. First, they are environmentally friendly because they use vegan products and do not use harsh chemicals. Second, the overall smell of Aveda products is amazing. I walk into any of their salons and instantly feel relaxed and at ease. Third, they have delicious tea! As soon as you walk in the cashiers will offer you water or tea. The color I got on my nails is called "Slate" and it is from the SpaRitual line. They also sell their nail polishes in the store or you can buy them at Ulta, where the link will take you. It is a great fall color. Green and grey with a light glitter sheen. The best part about Aveda next to all of the great things I listed is that you get to take home the nail polish you use! That is paying $10 for a manicure, $15 for a pedicure and receiving a $12 nail polish for free!

Along with the theme of army green nails is my outfit that I wore on Friday. Since it was Halloween, I wore all black (top, leggings) and a wide black hat. It was chilly so I threw on my favorite fall army green puffer jacket from Forever 21 (similar). This jacket I found on the ground of the sale section a few years back for about $8.00! It has been with me since my Freshman year of college. I feel like army green is a trend that has stuck around for a while, so luckily I found that jacket on sale and kept it all this time!
