NPR: This weeks favorites!!!

Today I would like to do something different. I got this idea from one of the things I am about to link you to, but I think I am going to make this a weekly thing. I am going to share 5 things that I am loving this week. Not necessarily polish related, but whatever I choose!!! Anyhway, here are my favorites!!!!

In no particular order

1) -- A great blogger who talks about her struggles with anxiety and depression. I'm feeling that right now...

2)The Flog-- Where I got the idea for this post. A youtube playlist channel-y dodad hosted by my girl crush Felicia Day (The Guild, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and one of the bring it on movies, also I believe she was on eureka for a bit. Not sure...). She's adorable and funny and a gamer. Love her. Want to be her. In a non creepy way.

3) Sinful Colors In the mist-- No swatch because of lack of camera. But its a dupe for OPI Nein Nein Nein Ok Fine! Its Beautiful.

4) Sweatpants--If you follow me on my Twitter you may recall the tweet where I said "You couldn't get me out of these sweatpants if you paid me" Pretty much how I feel. I'm trying to find brown or khaki sweatpants that I can wear to work. Might have something to do with my depression...

5)"Scuse me while I kill this guy"--Great book. I actually read it a while back when it was free on my kindle (bonus jonus #6 favorite, free books on the kindle fire) and it's hilarious. I want to read the rest of the story.

What are some things that you are loving this week? Do you think I should keep doing this? If so, can someone make me a fun graphic? lol.

P.S. I should be getting my new camera sometime in the next week or so.

Hello friends. Long time no post. A couple weeks ago I had done this amazing mani but wasn't able to take a photograph of it because my fiance and I are never home at the same time, or he is sleeping. So I came home from work, noticed his phone plugged into the wall and squeaked with joy, snatched it, and ran outside to take pictures. In retrospect, I should have moisturized first because I had just came home from work and my cuticles were SUPER DRY. So I apologize for that. On to the mani!

I started off with 2 coats of China Glaze Sweet Hook from the Electropop collection. Such a pretty lavender color! I followed that with 1 coat of Orly Can't Be Tamed from the flash glam collection (I got that polish for 1.50!) then 1 coat OPI Care To Danse? from the NYC Ballet Collection. Then I repeated with another coat of Can't Be Tamed and Care to Danse? followed by top coat.

I don't know why I threw this pic in blurry finger reminds me of dinosaur eggs...

I like a good jelly sandwich. Don't you? What was the last Jelly sandwich you wore? What's a good cuticle cream that doesn't leave you all greasy? My work destroys my hands...I broke a nail the other day all the way down to the quick. Does your work destroy your hands?

That's all for today folks!
