Hi I’m back. 🙂

So this past week I’ve started my new semester and been working and hanging out with Kasey and just having a lot to do. I have done my nails a few times but I haven’t been taking pictures because most of the time it’s been just to slap a color on and not have bare nails. From today on I’ll go back to those habits.

Later today I am going to see Kasey and spend some time with him. He is going to be teaching me one of my favorite songs on guitar because eventually I’d like to be able to play and sing it all on my own.

For workouts I’ve been mixing it up a lot all the time lately. I’ve been doing running and zumba and pilates and good old fashioned pushups and crunches. I have been feeling the need to dance again, so I think I’m going to start incooperating that into my workouts.

I’ve also been reading a new book on patience, it’s really nice. I think when I’m finished with it I might do a little review on here of it!

Well, I’ve got some stuff to do so I’ll see you Monday and let you know how my weekend was! I hope you have such a blessed day!

Hi!

So this past weekend I painted my nails with a new nailpolish; Lots of Lux by Essie. It was one of my Christmas presents from Kasey. ♡ The photos I have don’t show all the different elements of shimmer that it really has, but here’s the link to it on Essie’s own page. http://www.essie.com/Effects/encrusted/lots-of-lux.aspx

I didn’t do that well of a paint job because I wasn’t in good lighting. Anyways, this is one of the most beautiful colors I’ve ever seen. I’m going to take it off soon though because it needs to be something I wear for occasions- it’s too busy of a color to me to be wearing all the time.

When I take this manicure off I’m going to use the other nail polish from Kasey! It’s a metallic and it’s gorgeous.

My workout plans for this week consist of trying to get back on my Blogilates plan again. I printed out the 4 week beginners plan the other week and got a good 4 days into it, but finals week came up and I had no time for anything but studying! 😦 So I want to start again on day 5 and try to get that habit going again. I’m really liking pilates. I love working out in general, but I’ve found that pilates is the perfect balance of everything I love to do when working out! So this plan that I’m doing is very fun for me. It’s a 6 day a week plan with each day focused on a different body part.

As for just regular plans, I’m just working and hanging out with Kasey. On Friday I get paid so that’s exciting…I get to finish up my Christmas shopping! I’m also starting a goal of having my hair look perfect all day this entire week. I know I put my hair through too much but it’s just the biggest thing that makes me feel good and confident throughout the day. I don’t care what other people think, I care what I think; when my hair is perfect I feel put together and like I can have a clean and organized day. I have such a bad habit of putting my hair up whenever I’m at home or sleeping in through any time I have to do it and the rest of the day I just feel gross and lazy. So hopefully this helps!

Hope your week goes well and have a blessed day.

Personal Post!

I haven’t been sleeping well or feeling very rested when I do sleep well, so I’ve decided to start drinking chamomille tea at night and drinking green tea in the morning. I do typically drink coffee in the morning, but I know that tea has the reputation of waking you up and focusing you more than coffee.

I also switched up what I bought for my school lunches for the next two weeks. I’m alternating each day, but twice a week I am having a box of Chinese food. Grocery shopping yesterday, these certain cartons caught my eye and I really wanted to try something new. This brand has frozen cartons of the typical chinese entrees; general tso chicken, pepper beef, etc. It’s directions is to be put in the microwave for 4-5 minutes. I’m not going to even look at the nutritional information… but I sure hope it’s good!

The only other news I have is that on my recent shopping trip earlier this past weekend, I bought a lot of new hair products that I’m currently trying out! If I keep up using them often as I already have, I’m thinking of doing a review on a few of them.

Well, till next time!
