Mani Monday 💅🏼

Happy new week!

I am ready for my week!! My Love is on the road until Friday so it’s just me and Bailey girl. I stuck with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel and this week’s color is Rock On. It’s a silver polish with tiny, dark flecks in it. I like it a lot although I will admit that it looks like the flecks are bubbles in the polish. Check it out!


See it could look like tiny bubbles. 💅🏼 My mani only lasted 3 days last week. I must’ve been rougher than usual. The bad ruined nail bed is halfway grown out already. This makes me happy!! 😁👍🏼 

Have a great night peeps!! 💜😁💅🏼

Wellness Wednesday 

Good afternoon friends!!

Manicure Monday was a success so I’m going for a 2 post a week routine. 😁👍🏼 My gel polish is still perfect!

I’ve been kicking butt with Weight Watchers! I’m down 23 pounds and I’m really enjoying it! I had a great week last week until Tommy’s birthday weekend. But I’m not mad I just tracked it all and I’ve moved on from it. I lost 1.8 last week and I’m still looking okay for this week. Lots of clean eating necessary to stay on track. I want to lose a few more pounds before the Boston trip and I’m pretty sure I can do it!!


On another wellness note my Bipolar Disorder has been acting up a ton. I’m super exhausted and crabby….just not me. I’m quiet, and not in a peaceful way. I generally have issues in the spring so I’m not too surprised but it still doesn’t make going through it any easier. I hurt and I feel useless. I’m in a funk and I do not like it. I struggle with my eating and feel like self sabotaging everything I’ve worked so hard for. Good thing I have My Love by my side!! He stops me, well makes me see what I’m doing. 😍😍 It’s tricky having a miserable a$$hole living in my head. I am trying to practice my self care but I’m unable to read when I feel like this. I just am not me. I’m going through the motions but I’m not IN it. I slept in today hoping to brush it off….we shall see.

Thanks for reading friend! I hope you loved Wellness Wednesday! Time to learn! Have a great rest of your week!! See you on Manicure Monday!! 😁💅🏼👍🏼💜

New jobby job

Good afternoon my Lovelies!

I have been a little bit absent lately and I have no reason.  Maybe I just didn’t have anything to report…I don’t know.

Yesterday I started my NEW job!  I’m a Consierge at a high end nail salon.  It’s right up my alley.  It’s a salon, it’s nails and I have to talk to people.  My chatty self is definitely in the right spot. 🙂 Also…me and nails?!  HEAVEN!

Today is day 2, wish me luck!

So on another front: my birth control just costed $108.00!?!?!?!?!  What the hell!?  Some nonsense about deductibles as part of the new 2015 rules.  I only have to hit a $200.00 deductible…well my meds are more than that a month so I’ll that by the end of the month…talk about a giant surprise.  Annoying! Good thing I have a new job…my goodness…..

In our kitchen we’ve been making a lot of new recipes.  We made zucchini noodles, zoodles!  Marinara and a few turkey meatballs…yummmmmm! We’ve been doing a lot of Paleo recipes not on purpose, just happening.  I think because I’m loving lexiscleankitchen.com and Paleomg.com 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

My Dad has been gone over a year now.  I’m hoping that it’s true that the first year is the worst because it was shitty.  I felt like garbage when I got my job and couldn’t call to tell him.  My first day of work and I thought to call him then that kick in the stomach returned …I can’t call.  I’m not gonna lie I was far from a consistent daughter.  I called less and less as he got sicker because we couldn’t have a traditional conversation.  I’d make a mental list of questions to ask and things to report.  I’d talk and I’d get a one word answer.  I’d happily settle for that kind of call now. ❤

I hope you all have a super week!!! ❤ Chrissi
