Back with new technology

It's been many months because I was intimidated by other blogs, but now I'm inspired again. Also, I have a new laptop! Mother's Day. So awesome! I just wanted some cake. And my son wrote me a poem which was the coolest. And I'm really going to get the camera out and experiment because I have a usb that works now. But I'm going to write anyway until I get the camera going because that's what Scrangie did and I admire her blog most.

I'm wearing Orly Cashmere Cardigan and I love this color. It's a tiny bit too purple to be periwinkle, but it's close. I could put a sheer blue on top and probably get it there. Maybe tonight. I'm happy because something I had to do for work that involved getting up super early is being done by someone else so I'm writing my happy little heart out.

My nails are a lot like All Lacquered Up. I forget her name. Michelle? They are detached so I can't get them very long. The biggest problem is that I'm a clumsy oaf and I always hurt myself by catching them on things. So I keep them short and lately they've grown nice and I need to file them or even cut them. My cuticles are in the best shape of their lives thanks to nail blogs. I'll get a picture up soon. I ruined one yesterday during a boring training though. I tend to pick. I keep a nail clipper in my purse and I try to clip any hang nails immediately because otherwise I pick and destroy the whole area. But cuticle oil soothes them. I also love plain, raw shea butter.

Shea butter comes right from a tree in Africa. I buy it in a plastic condiment holder at this amish market place. Totally cheap. It smells kind of weird, but you don't need much and it is very smooth after it's rubbed in. Very good for cuticles and feet. I keep it in a beautiful pot that my son made for me. I'll put a picture of that in here too!

I haven't counted my polishes, but my sister lined them all up on the table sorted by company name and declared my collection "excessive." My dream is to have a mirrored, lighted cabinet and display them in there. My top 20 all together.

My new favorite is Rescue Beauty Lounge No More War because it is so UGLY!!!! I love it!!! I took advantage of the 50% off sale. I got the floral spice lotion too (cuz I had to.) It's okay. But the polish! I love it. I got Bruised and Dead Calm. I haven't tried Dead Calm yet, but Bruised was cool. Kind of like a cream version of Essie Rock Star Skinny if you can believe that. Very work-friendly. Not that I care about that!


  1. I love No More War. One of my favorite polish colors is olive green. I also had to get the RBL creme. I didn't think much of it either. I guess it's the only way to sell their overpriced cremes. I wish I had bought the glitter polishes. I bought 2 of the Sponge Bob collection, Dead Calm and Bruised.

  2. I wish I had bought the glitter ones too!!!! But I figured they were easy enough to layer with the glitters I have. They are more expensive than I can live with. Sale price makes more sense, but still more than I like. I'm happy with $5.00 or under. Love the sale bins. I've found some cool stuff that way.
