The baby took his first trip to the movies! Ironically, I won't allow him to watch television at home because of his young eyes, yet I subjected him to a two hour flick on a large screen.
He and other babies were welcomed guests thanks to the Angelika and the Crybaby matinee.
Each week the Angelika encourages parents to bring their baby to the movies! Sometimes they provide a changing table within the theater (though they did not this time) and the lights are dimmed so you can see your baby in the dark. We have two Angelikas in our area, which means we can see two different movies in any given week.
We decided to see The Tourist, despite the poor reviews online.
There were a dozen people in attendance and four of them were babies. Surprisingly, all of them were very quiet, with the exception of a certain *someone* who was sitting in my lap and chatting to himself in his own "baby" language! The Crybaby matinee is a unique way to spend time with your baby, while still keeping up with current films.

The nail is painting with a base coat, two layers of polish and a top coat as with any regular manicure. The difference is that each layer is "cured" with a UV lamp to secure the color. Unlike a regular manicure, shellac nails are supposed to keep their glossy polished look for up to two weeks without a chip or smudge to the polish. Plus, there is no drying time because of the curing. These are my nails a week after my trip to the spa.
Not every salon offers shellac nails, so you will have to do a search to find a salon near you.

Save yourself the time of wrapping Christmas presents this year by giving them in a Christmas mini-tote from "the preppy debutante co.", which is a gift itself. You can find me on Etsy under "preppydebutante."
