Wet N Wild Sparked

Pretty, pretty, pretty. I love glittery polishes but rarely wear it because of work. But now it is the freakin' weekend so my nails are getting some glittery love.

Once the first coat went on I was a little scared it was going to take forever to get a nice glitter packed coat. User error. I just wasn't dispersing what was on my brush properly. You can see my pinky and ring fing don't have to much glitter but after angling the brush better things seemed hopeful.

By the second coat I was convinced to press on. Looking good right?

Third coat is a charm and the good thing is this dries pretty fast so I wasn't waiting to long between coats.

I'd say this took about 20 minutes from start to finish but mind you I typed this blog post during that time as well. Mulit-tasking at its finest.

Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!!!

Kleancolor Meet NK

Yes, it is another purple polish. Yes, it is another way to show my support for the Ravens. This is 2 coats of Kleancolor Purple (no points for name originality) with a layer of NK Sparkling Gold (no naming points for NK either).

Kleancolor Purple and NK Sparkling Gold

This Kleancolor polish took forever to dry but I was in no hurry. Once I put 1 layer of the NK Sparkling Gold on I knew I was done. This was headed for a sticky, goopy mess. I only need to leave it on for football Sunday and I doubt it will last to much longer.

Have fun watching football tomorrow!!!

Fit Test 2

I am still going strong with INSANITY. Today was my 2nd Fit Test. I am pleased to see my work is paying off.

Fit Test 1 and 2

I think I have another one 2 weeks from now so I really have to continue to push myself.

Hat Attack!!

Who doesn't love a cute hat. I picked this one up a few days after Christmas and it is on my shelf waiting to be worn.


Now I just have to figure out what I want to wear it with :-)

NYC Prince Street

Whoa... a nail polish post.. get outta here!!! Yes, it has been quite some time and my nails have been naked for the most part. It has been long over due so I am just doing a simple mani to say:


NYC Prince Street

This 2 coats of NYC Prince Street without a top coat.

I feel happy having my nails painted. For $1.72 this is probably one of the cheapest ways around for a quick mood booster. Hopefully, I will be back soon with another color. There are a lot of unused polishes in my stash.

On the Bookshelf- Knit and Be Fit

A quick peek at the latest books I checked out from the library.


Fitness and Knitting. They go hand and hand right :-)

I have gotten a chance to flip through all of the books and have actually read a good bit of the High-Intensity training. When it comes to health and fitness there is soooo much information out there it is easy to get confused. I am a keep it simple kind of person so cardio, weights, eat right should do the trick. I like to thumb through the fitness books to find new exercises. Yes, I know anything can be found on the Internet but there is something about having a book in my hand and turning pages. I wonder if in my lifetime books will be obselete.

The Christmas Balls book has some cute ornaments that can be knitted up. I probably should have checked this out well before Christmas but it isn't to late to make a couple of ornaments for next year. We'll see. If anything I can revisit it in October or November.

That's right. The first 60 days of the year is being dedicated to INSANITY!!! This was a Christmas gift and I couldn't be more excited about it. Should I be scared? The month of December was great getting back into the gym but now the time has come for me to kick it up a notch.


Before I started I knew I would need some new shoes. The sneakers I have now are about 2 years old and I really shouldn't be wearing them at all because there is absolutely NO cushion left in them. Bad, bad, bad.

Talk about a rude awakening taking pictures of myself. I want the t-shirt which means I have to show someone else those pictures.. oh geez. If anything they will be a great motivator because I refuse to look like that.

If you have done INSANITY before and have any advice please share.
