The Return!

EEK! It's been way too long since I last updated this blog.  First it was work and now it was my computer dying on me at the beginning of the summer.  I've been using an I-Pad as a computer source but it just isn't the same for blogging - no keyboard!
I finally got the computer fixed - or at least gave it some life support to keep going for a little longer.  I will likely have to invest in a new one soon before the end of the year, which is depressing because I'm attached and because I'm sort of going through a financial crisis - see below. 

As for what I have been up too...
1. Trying to work my way up the corporate ladder! Which means long hours at work. :(
2. Trying to cut down on my spending habits -- too much nail polish! lol Not really, but life has gotten very expensive lately (hence why it took so long to fix my laptop).  I've given my financial life a complete overhaul and I'm trying to live on a budget.  A hard thing to do when you live in New York and just one day of lunch can be $10 and up.
3. Trying to eat healthier.  The whole long hours at work = long hours in a chair.  I used to run (shocking fact for people who know me lol) It was my stress reliever.  And somehow I changed jobs and started working ridiculous hours and stopped working out.  Which is a no no for me - my goal is to look like Tina Turner when I'm 70.  I'm serious - has anyone seen that woman's legs! She is gorgeous! 
4. Still do my nails - just lost computer powers ...and sort of wanted to do them for me.  I think every nail blogger goes through this at some point - a break in the posting to just enjoy doing your nails for you again.

I will be back to posting.  I actually tweeted a preview of what next post will look like.  PINK! of course :)  Keep an eye out for it this week. 

Hope all is well ladies!

Pixie Dust

Happy May Ladies! :)

I start off this month with a pink look in honor of spring/summer.  The weather hasn't been very spring like though.  It was raining buckets a few days ago and is still so so outside.  Whatever, I want it to be spring so my nails will be colorful from now on!

A Dark and Starry Night

Another week, another set of nails! This week I'm posting up my Bloglovin account too.  I used to use blogger to keep track of everyone I follow but bloglovin is just easier.  If you have an account - follow me please! :)  Now on to this week's nails...

The Essie Chronicles - Part One

Consider this my late Valentine's Day post.  I was a single girl this year and spent most of it working (being a career woman is tough on the love life!).  What wasn't tough? Doing my nails! :)
This week I'm introducing my favorite Essie polish...while also continuing my love affair with glitter.

Where's The Turkey?

Hey Ladies! Another delayed holiday post!
This time I'm posting up my Thanksgiving/Fall mani from last year.  This is another glitter combo I thought worked well for both work and normal life.  I confess I've become a bit of a glitter addict lately, so a lot of my manicures will probably have some sort of glitter in them in the next coming weeks.  I don't do anything too bright though, since it's winter and I work in an office setting.
