Happy New Year! I rang in 2012 with friends in Lake Placid, New York.

A few of us visited the Olympic Jumping Complex to watch a competition and took the lift and elevator to the top of ski jump tower. The view from the 120 meter platform was unbelievable.

It rained on New Year's Eve so we spent most of the day on the couch watching a Jersey Shore marathon. We were more than ready to get out for the night and celebrate. It wasn't easy but we were up early the next morning to ski.

I got a gel manicure before the trip... it only lasted 3.5 days before it started to peel off. Should I blame the weather? Hand cream? Gloves? Oh well.

Cheers to 2012! Resolutions to follow...


  1. Shellac manicures are definitely the way to go. Pricey but they last the full 2 weeks (at least) and don't chip or peel. Great photos!!

  2. What a fun NYE weekend...happy 2012! We went to the beach and I also have a picture of all the girls in front of the mantel in their sparkles! xx

  3. Happy New Year!! The top of that ski jump tower is scary!! How do they do it!!

  4. How fun!! I love the snow.

    And my gel nails didn't last long either. :(

  5. How fun! Love the snow! And your gold and black tunic! Have you tried Shellac? It lasts at least two weeks and they are getting lots of new colors - can even do french. I usually paint my own nails twice a week but I always get Shellac for special occasions.

  6. Happy new year!! These pics are beautiful!! I've been wanting to go to lake placid for quite some time. All the best to you in 2012!
