Nail of the Week! The Glue Trick

Nail of the weekThe first thing I thought of when I decided to try the glue thing was this won’t dry. It took a really long time for the glue to dry so of course I thought there is no way this is going to work, and then it finally dried! So, you might be wondering what the glue trick is. It is where you line your nails with glue so when you paint you can pull the extra color from around them right off. I was skeptical, but I tried it and here are the results.


After the glue finally dried I added some v stickers so that I could create a negative space design.


Next I painted on OPI’s  Can’t Find my Czechbook


When I pulled off the v stickers, the glue also came off, and it did take off the extra polish. I think this is useful if you are doing a sponge look or something equally messy. What do you think?



Thanks for reading.

Sunday Wish List!


It’s time for all the things I want this week!


1. A Good Highlighter

I really want that highlighter that gives me the gorgeous dewy look. At the moment I use Candlight Glow from Two Faced, and I just don’t feel really dewy. I don’t think it has much in the way of color payoff and shine.

2. MIDI Rings!!

I am obsessed with Midi Rings, but I can’t find silver ones, I want silver ones. I rarely wear gold, and the main rings I wear are gold so I need the silver ones, and I just think they are so cute.

3. Floral Pumps

I want some summery pumps, and I may actually fulfill this wish this week because it’s time for JUST FAB again!! The have some floral wedges I have been eying.


4. Orange Lipstick

I need some orange lipstick that works with my pale skin. The Vivids one I have is very pretty, but this Milani one was BRIGHT!!

WLW- Kale Chips and Miranda Kerr Workout Style


Happy weight loss Wednesday. I have two things to talk about today.

Kale chips

Miranda Kerr and her easy workout style

Starting with the Kale chips. I made some and learned what not to do.


You should spritz them with olive oil. SPRITZ! I doused mine in vegetable oil. Trust me they are not going to be crispy that way. A little goes a long way. My boyfriend says I have a weakness for chips, so my goal is to make healthier ones. Here are some more I am going to try.

Zucchini Chips

Carrot Chips

Beet Chips

Eggplant Chips

The kale chips were good. They just weren’t crispy. I am going to try again with a lot less oil and I think it will be successful. Tonight we try Rutabaga with Rosemary and Garlic. I will let you know how that turns out.

My last weight loss Wednesday nugget is how awesome Miranda Kerr looks just out running. I know I look pained, sweaty, tired, but not this gorgeous. She is a good inspiration for us.


Here’s a workout I will try to get through tonight. 🙂


Happy Weight Loss Wednesday my friends!

Thanks for reading!

NOTW – Nail of the Week! Clearly Missing

Nail of the week

Since I always have a nail of the week and name them something fun, this week I have Clearly Missing.

IMG_20140610_115322173-1 Yes it’s just a clear nail strengthener for Nail Savvy. My nails look pitiful. They are peeling and mad at me. They just need a break for a minute. It’s really hard for me to let them have it. I love painting my fingernails. This week I was excited because I was going to play around with negative space. Hopefully I will be able to do that for next week.

I picked this up at Sally’s Beauty Supply because my nails were peeling and just used it underneath my nail polish for the week. I am going to let it do it’s strengthening magic tonight. My nails are breathing right now.

What are some things you use to keep your nails strong? Do your nails peel when they are being painted a lot? Thanks for reading and here are some nail addiction pictures to help with my withdraw.

WLW – Shawn T 25 and an Apology

i-can tumblr_m5tvg6IZCi1rtk32zo1_500 tumblr_muweqgzgLK1qinw58o1_500

^^ that one is just fun!

Here’s your motivation for today!

As I sit here sad because I have burnt my tongue on my oatmeal I am making some major overhauls to my life. Okay, it’s not that major, but hear me out.

One – I suck. I admit that I suck and now that I have told you, I will tell you why I suck.

I committed to #bloggersWLW when it became a thing and I was so excited to be a part of it, and then I was a dud. As a writer sometimes I lose touch with reality, and with two jobs in addition it can be easy. It’s not an excuse though and I know that.

I haven’t neglected my fitness, so why neglect blogging about it?


In addition to weight loss wed I am getting my blog back on track with Nail of the Week Monday – Tuesday Mini Favs and Friday Ask the Youtuber. Anyone who wants to be interviewed as that youtuber please, ask me!

Okay so on to the bananas and cream, the reason you’re here, the wlw post!

I have been doing this.

It’s 25 minutes, I get up and bust my bum in the morning. I have the videos, but you can actually find some lovely people doing it for you on Youtube. I say, it doesn’t matter who you work out with just that you work out.


If you want to give it a try these two are fun.


You can actually see their progression as they go. I just wanted to give you an opportunity to try it out for yourself before you commit to buying anything.

So with T -25 – MyFitnessPal – and walking a very hyper Rebel down a very steep mountain after work my butt should be in shape soon. I still love to eat though! Comment down below how you keep from overeating at meals or having extra snacks. As always, thank you for reading!
