bubblegum pink

I was going to keep on those Sally Hansen Salon Effects strips for 10 days to see if they lasted as long as they said it would. Then I got bored with the design so off it went. I changed it to pink! This reminds me of Nicki Minaj. check it out. check it out :)

My day after Christmas story.

It was the day after Christmas. My bf's relative from Hawaii was visiting so we went bowling. Normally, I wouldn't ever choose to go bowling as an activity because I'm horrible at the game. 

Yesterday, I had a pretty good time! 
I didn't throw too many gutters and I had a score of 92!! Not to shabby.

But of course, with my borderline-embarrassing obsession of nails I can make anything related to nail art. 

Anyways, while bowling I broke my thumb nail. I was just going to rip it off but it was painful and I decided to glue it back together. Since Travis & I had to go to to church directly after bowling we stopped by a random Walgreen's in Kirkland to get some glue. I headed towards the nail aisle and to my surprise I found this display and almost pee'd my pants. I've always wanted to try out these things!! They are basically DIY Minx

Then you can click on it again for a closer look at the designs.

 I really wanted the butterfly one but they were out so I got the colorful flower one. Look at my sad broken nail. It split like an upside down 'Y'.

 Included was: 16 strips, file buffer things, & manicure stick. When I did all 10 nails I only used one of the two sets of nail strips. I just cut them in half because $9.99 is a lot for one "manicure". I mean, I can find a bottle of OPI for $4 and they, the nail Gods, say that one bottle can last 30-40 manis.

 This is what the finished product looks like. Oooh. Ahhh. It says on the package it's suppose to last up to 10 days. That's a lie. Well, it probably was because of my poor application skills, but right after I put them on I went to the fridge to feed my fatass and I noticed a chip. Immediately, I slapped on some topcoat and it's been holding up since. I just don't think it will last me 10 days.

I think it looks nice. 
Overall, I like them (so far). It's not as satisfying as painting my own nails. Nothing can replace that.  Also, it's kind of pricey. Once they go on sale I will be all over the nicer intricately designed ones.

Happy Monday, Motherlovers.

It helps that her nails are badass.

I really wish I could shake this feeling.

I want to vomit and then run away to a remote islands. I'd eat coconuts & fish all day long.

I'm moving!

Wecome to my soon-to-be living space.
All the neighbors I've met so far have been so nice to me.
I even got invited to the neighborhood Christmas Party.

This is the view from my living room window. 
That is Lake Washington =)

 Say hello to my bathroom.

 This is my bedroom.

 Saving the best for last...
With brand spankin' new appliances.

Who knows how long I'm going to be living here.
I just can't wait to put my bread machine on the counter top.

Happy Friday!
I have a cousin filled weekend ahead of me. 
Concert tonight.
Sleepover tomorrow.
Chocolate Factory Tour on Sunday.


I've been so out of it lately. This weather is so depressing.
Most days I just want to lay in bed once I get home from work & watch Netflix. Anyways.

Check this cutie pie snowman polish I bought from Rite Aid.

 Yay!! I checked the mail & found my $3.50 nail art brush set I bought a while ago. I wondered how they could be sold for so cheap. Free shipping, too. I figured that since it's from Hong Kong, it's probably made from the hairs of unwanted children. Yeah, I went there.

This book has been on my list of "books to read" for a long time.
If I can't read it, I'll listen to it. It's a big change for my morning commute.
I usually just listen to the Morning Show w/ Karen & Eddie.

Bloop bloop.

If money grew on trees.

I watched the documentary Born Rich directed by Jaimie Johnson. It made me jealous. I wish I were born rich. Yeah, being rich doesn't bring happiness but it would make majority of my worries disappear and make lots of my dreams come true.

I asked Travis one day, "How do people live & raise families making minimum wage?"

He responded, "They just do."

I've been really BLAH lately but I'm thankful to have a job.
