Nail Polish Pick OTW: Sinful Colors "Frenzy".
 I went to a wedding in Southern Indiana this weekend and we got caught in race traffic, so this is a photo I took when I was bored. It is just glitter, but I put on three coats and it made it pretty solid. I typically hate wearing glitter because it is so difficult to take off. This polish is like $2. Steal.
 And we've all seen this pin right? Beautiful beachy waves! So easy. Just do this and you'll look wonderful.
So speaking of frenzy... I just did it, and I look like I'm ready to go rob a pharmacy. Pin fail. I'm not very successful at my pins.

Fiji + Disco Nap

I'm looking pretty rough today, so you only get a picture of my nails.

I painted them with Essie Fiji yesterday, but then did some serious cleaning so the tips were chipping and not looking so hot. Instead of redoing them today I decided to see if I could do tips. If not I was going to have to fix them anyway. An experiment so to say.

I added the Color Club Disco Nap I got in my Birchbox and really like how it turned out.

I used scotch tape to make lines. It is a little messy, but now I'll know how to do it perfectly next time.

What do you think?

What's In My Purse: Hoarders Edition

I follow The Small Things Blog. I love Kate and all of her hair ideas and beauty stuff.  The past few weeks she has been having guests who share what is in their purses.

My first reaction is who the heck cares? I don't. We all have the same stuff in our purses. Phone, wallet, lip stuff, keys. Purse stuff. Duh.

However, I was cleaning today.

It has been a looooong time since I've done any organizing in our computer room. There is junk all over the place. So after I worked out today (if you can even call it that. My workouts are still lame, thanks to Ingrid's foot that refuses to kick the cast) I came home and got to work on the computer room. In the closet, I keep my extra purses, bathing suits, and winter accessories. Closet space is seriously lacking in our bedroom, so I use all of them. You know why? Because I can. That is why.

I got a new purse recently and needed to put my old one in my box of bags that I have. I seriously have it labeled "Handbags: Coach, Maxximum" like I don't freaking know what I have in there. I'm so weird sometimes. So I start digging through the box and I find the most annoying thing in the world. This is what happens. When I switch purses, I take the stuff out that I need, the necessities, and I leave all the other junk in it. Seriously. Here is where it's about to get real.

I found all of this in four purses. FOUR.

Let us take a closer look, shall we?
  1. Empty bottle of Aveeno hand cream.
  2. Generic bottle of Pain Reliever with seven tablets left inside.
  3. My PetSmart PetPerks card. (Obviously, I use that.)
  4. Benadryl, for that occasional allergic reaction.(You never know.)
  5. One penny. Note: This is the only money I found in all of this. I'm so cheap.
  6. An empty mint wrapper.
  7. Three watch links that I had a jeweler remove.
  8. A miniature pink Roxy flip flop.
  9. One hair elastic.
  10. A pink foam heart with my name written on it.
  11. An empty eye drop bottle.
  12. Hand sanitizer holder.
  13. Hand sanitizer.
  14. Thirteen bobby pins.
  But wait! There is more!

  1.  Two panty liners.
  2. Rave Motion Pictures gift card.
  3. Applebees gift card.
  4. Reminders of my eye appointment scheduled for April 23, 2009 at 8:40am. And my glasses and contacts prescriptions. (Funny story. I actually remember that I cancelled this appointment because I had just started my job two weeks prior and I didn't know how they would act about me taking time off. Oh, how things have changed.)
  5. Jolly Rancher wrapper. Considering my favorite flavor, I would say this was probably a grape wrapper.
  6. Every single card my esthetician, Jennifer, ever gave me. I seriously have three different styles of her business card. If you like my eyebrows, let me know. I can spare a card to give you.
  7. A business card of Brett from Wendy's Bridal. I specifically remember Brett being female.
  8. Movie tickets from Iron Man and The Dark Knight. Seriously. We saw a lot of movies in July 2008.
Also found, but not pictured:
  • Four pay stubs. One dating back to July 2005 from a law firm that is no longer is business.
  • A receipt from when I ate at the Acme Bar for lunch on July 9, 2008. (I'm starting to think I'm just a hoarder in July.)
  • A receipt from Walmart where I bought five Lean Cuisines, obviously a weeks worth of lunches. This was July 2008, before I learned to cook, and before I learned what sodium is.
  • A receipt from Global Cellular from July 18, 2005 where I spent $21.19 on something that I cannot recall. At. All.
  • A receipt from Bandido's in which I supposedly ate at on July 18, 2008. I hate Bandido's. With a capital HATE. I don't know why I ate there, or what I had, but I do not recall this. 
  •  A receipt from July 19, 2008 when I took all of my bridesmaids out to lunch at Biaggi's. I remember that. I loooove their bread. 
I should probably pack all this up and go on Let's Make A Deal. I think there is some money in this.

So yeah. What is in your old purses? If you know Kate, let her know she should do this as her next guest spot.

Disco Nap + Tart Deco

My Birchbox finally came. I've been waiting and waiting for it. In the email I got it said that arrival times may vary depending on where you live. However, Ingrid got hers before me and she lives far enough out in the middle of no where that they solve pest problems with rifles. Not so much the case here. At least not during the day.

It's like Birchbox knew that I needed gold sparkles though. They knew.
Essie Tart Deco on all fingers except the ring. Bling finger is Color Club Disco Nap. I think that is a dumb name, but it is exactly what I was looking for when I said I wanted to do this manicure. I still love Tart Deco.
My very first Birchbox
And this is what was inside. Blue Stila Eyeliner (no idea what I'm going to do with that), moisturizer, nail polish and keratin shampoo, conditioner, and shine serum. Pretty awesome.
What was in your Birchbox this month?

Steel-ling The Scene

My nail polish pick of the week this week is Steel-ling The Scene by Essie. This is a Target only color so get there if you want it. Basically I match my kitchen appliances.
 I pretty much look like a rockstar, which is exactly what I'm doing to be tomorrow working the election.

I've been doing tons of stuff around the house. Ok, not really. I've just done some things. Anyway, I'll post about some of them as soon as I get some photos taken. I will tell you though that I did some electrical work, so if you're needing anything electrical, you're still going to need an electrician. 

After my rant last week about my bangs (it wasn't pretty if you haven't seen it), my cousin posted this on one of my videos on Facebook.
He's a pretty funny guy. Hi, Nick.

The Polls Are Open

Please vote:

My Van Halen/Avengers painting?
 or the Tree with a Green Bird painting?
Either way, one of them will hang there and the other will hang in the hallway.

Ingrid and I found that painting yesterday at Hobby Lobby and I had to have it. It was 50% off. Last chance.

Also, you'll notice I'm wearing a purple shirt and a purple headband. I told Joshua earlier this morning that I couldn't do it because I'd be too matchy matchy and look dumb. See?
