Tryin' to get my Groove Back / Ballerina Nails

First of all I feel so bad for not posting anything since I launched my blog sale a few months back. I am beyond lucky, I had over 100 packages I sent out!!! The whole process looking back was a lot of work from listing all the polishes to invoicing to packing and shipping.... I'm shocked I went through with it all!  So a big Thank you to you guys for all the support you've shown me even if you didn't buy anything I appreciate folks just checking it out. I did very well and as my husband kept pointing out to me that I didn't really make any money off the sale since I bought all the crap I sold, but it's still money back in my pocket!!! It's been a great boost in helping me pay down my debt that I racked up on house renovations and I haven't been buying like I have in the past so I've been good and actually working on paying stuff off. I'm happy to say that I have one more payment on my card and I'm back to a blank slate!!! Woo hoo!!!!!

Because I've been so "Well Behaved" I decided I need a break from work and house renovations so I booked my Trip to Vegas this year for Cosmoprof to help me really kickstart some life back into my blog. I know I went last year and I was hoping to breathe life back into the blog then but the reality was that we were still super knee deep in house stuff that it just wasn't possible. I'm happy to say that while we are still working on the house there is an actual end in sight. It still might be a good 2 months before we move but we are now closer than ever. I no longer spend hours researching bathroom designs and searching for the perfect tiles. The bathrooms are both designed and we are almost done tiling them  which means we aren't too far along from getting the floors refinished and moving in!! So I will be making an effort to start blogging again. I have been rather active on Instagram and I love how quick and easy it is but I do miss being active on the blogging platform because it's how I started. I miss editing pictures for hours... haha okay that's pushing it. I need to pull myself outta this funk and recommit myself. It's because of blogging here on that has brought me so many opportunities and friends around the globe that I'm a fool for not paying attention to that and I've left so many of you in the dark. I'm planning my comeback and for those that are still around thank you you won't be sorry that you still follow me!! okay Ramble much??? haha so since a post doesn't feel like a post without pictures I'll go ahead and share just a few just cause I can.

So I decided to try this new shape out since it's something I've never tried and while I'm not a huge fan of it I did find out it's got a few names and one of them is ballerina nails so naturally how cute would it be to do ballet shoes nail art with this shape. So I did.  I used Zoya Barbie since it's the perfect girly pink and I grabbed a random cover girl shimmer .. sorry can't remember the name just to make it sparkle a little. This shape is also called coffin, and squareletto. haha I admit I was thinking of doing coffin nails but this just seemed a little more pleasant.  Thanks for reading and I'll see you guys very soon!!!

I figured I'd throw in a house picture. The top picture is the actual MLS house listing picture from when we first saw it online. Bottom is what it looks like today after our various touches to it. Sometimes it feels like we haven't done much since we've been working on it for over two years but when I see pictures like this it's pretty clear that yes we have done a lot. There's still work to be done but We've come a long way!!! 


  1. Its great to read and see an update from you. The house renovation looks like its moving along great too. Cute nails too, totally reminds me of ballet slippers.

  2. Wee the house is looking AWESOME!! So happy for you and Dave. You guys have put so many long hours/days/ get the picture into it that I'm so glad it's finally looking like what you guys envisioned!

  3. I love the shape! I think the design really shows them off as well... Very accurate! :) Congrats on all that's been going on, as well! Looks great!

  4. Thanks Lisa! It's hard to make yourself do something after such a long absence , sorta like how i need to start working out... i keep telling myself once we move in I'll cook more and eat out less... these days i seem full of excuses <3 one thing at a time

  5. We are overdue to hang out!! I'll be in Vegas from the 10-17 we should plan on something when i get back! PS Thank you for being supportive you've been so sweet and very helpful especially with my blog sale !!

  6. The shape has grown on me, I sorta thought id try the shape and then in a few days file to a stiletto, but well it's been over a week and Im still sporting the shape and I don't know if it's because i like it or if i'm too lazy to file my nails more... haha it is different though!
