Hi!

I hope you all have had a wonderful year! Thank you all so much for following me and keeping up with me. It means a lot to me that as wishy-washy with my blog as I’ve been, quite a few of you have stuck around to read what I have to say!

My weekend was somewhat slow, but definitely good. On Saturday I painted my nails. The design I chose was for my friend Sierra, who suggested it when I asked what she thought I should do. I didn’t end up liking it very much. The color I actually own least of is pink…which is strange…but anyways, I think this design would have been cute with a baby pink, but I don’t have one. The pink that I chose is Peach Daiquiri by Essie. I do not like this polish. It is too runny and then goes on in layers that quickly get too thick. The cross I did didn’t come out too well either. Anyhoo, here’s the picture.Image

That day I just relaxed, went to work, and spent some down time. On Sunday I worked 9-5 and had a somewhat of a hard day, but when I thought about the plan He has for me and how much He loves me…. I felt so much comfort and happiness and I felt okay again. I realized it was just a challenge to keep my strength fresh and growing. So later that day my brother took me to run an errand, and afterwards, he took me to his new house for dinner. I am so proud of my brother (who is 9 years older than me). He has his own little family and a nice, beautiful house. It was so fun to see what he’s done for himself! I love my brother to pieces.

Sunday night I painted my nails for New Years! I have a picture of how they looked last night and today, but after I write this post I am going to actually go add some other stuff to them and take a new picture that will be up on Thursday. Here is how they turned out at first! I used just a normal white, and the blue that I posted about in the past; Lots Of Lux by Essie from their New Years 2014 collection. </p>IMG_3423<
I'm excited to add something extra to them! Tomorrow for New Years Eve, I'm going to spend the day with my boyfriend, relaxing, enjoying our last day of the year together, and that evening we will probably hang out with family and family friends until the New Year!

I almost forgot to tell you about today…

Today was such a wonderful day. My boyfriend randomly decided to take today as a day to pamper and spoil me. When he picked me up this morning he took me to a surprise breakfast at our favorite little Cafe with crepes. The day was spent wonderfully, relaxing, laughing, having a great time. Then he took me to the store and put me in the cookie aisle, told me to look at the cookies and pick a few, and then he returned, brought me around the corner, and surprised me with a HUGE vase of beautiful roses. They were the most beautiful roses or flowers he’s ever given me so far. Afterwards, he took me to get my favorite smoothie in the whole world, and then home to laugh and relax some more. Tonight we tried to go to dinner but it was so packed, we couldn’t get in in time. So after we tried going to a sit down place, we just ended going to another one of my favorite cafe’s for some soup and a sandwich. It was such a lovely day and it reminded me of how blessed I am to have this man in my life that loves me so much. And of course I love him so much…so much. As cheesy as it sounds, I never thought in my life I could ever love someone this much.

And on that note, I’ll leave you for the year! See you next year. I hope everyone has an amazing and safe New Year’s Eve and New Years Day. It’s been a great year…have a blessed night.

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.
