Have you been watching? The buzz created by this history-making Olympics has been nothing short of amazing! And with good reason, too.
I, for one, have been watching and just continue to be amazed by ALL of the athletes. Just amazed! How about Michael Phelps? How do you just break ancient records, seriously? That in and of itself is a 'drop the mic, walk-off-the-stage' moment. The records broken in the sport of swimming by Michael Phelps, Katie Ledecke, and Simone Manuel -to name a few really have made this an Olympics to remember for me personally.
I would be remiss if I did not mention how cool the athletes are to tie in beauty and fashion with their sports. I noticed that several swimmers, including Simone Manuel, had to make sure those nails were camera-ready. The nail designs were simple, yet chic. I saw a lot of red, white and blue, of course placed strategically for an eye-catching look. I completely appreciate women (and men) taking time out for themselves and treating themselves to a mani, pedi, spa day (or whatever else works).
Did you take notice of the Women's Olympic team? Their eye makeup was perfect with their uniforms. I hear those uniforms were about $1200 each and were designed with Swavorksi crystals. I could tell they were Swavorski by the sparkle. :) I liked how the makeup was only placed at the rim of the eye (lower and upper lids). Its glittery presence really made the ladies' eyes "pop" even more. Congrats to everyone! Can't wait to see more.
