If you are an Essie nail polish junkie, you have probably seen or heard of their new Essie Gel Couture polishes by now. Instead of their classic square polish bottles, Essie came up with this ergonomic design that makes holding their polishes a bit more snug.
I stay in the Richmond/Vancouver bubble way too much. Langley is pretty much a foreign city to me, as foreign as Japan or LA. So on our weekend getaway from Harrison Hot Springs, my friends showed me a picture of a waffle at Kraus Berry Farm and my stomache was ready.
