The Nail Files

The Nail Files

Happy Friday everyone! Today I am linking up with Fabulous but Evil and My Vickilicious Life

Okay so I finally got the crackle nail polish! I like the idea just not so much the color I got will have to try something different.

I used Nails Inc. Special Effects in Hoxton Purple Crackle from Sephora with Sephora Chic and Rebel black as the underneath. I did add a clear coat so it would have a little more shine.

Have you ever used crackle polish? What were your thoughts?

Sometimes and Always

Today is my first link up to Sometimes and Always so here goes...

Sometimes: I try to be good and drink water....
Always: I end up back with my Diet Mtn Dew

Sometimes: I go into the store for a handful of things
Always: I come out with way more than I thought

Sometimes: I look at makeup up and say I don't need it
Always: I talk myself into it or go back and get it

Sometimes: I try to quit smoking
Always: I end up picking them up again

Sometimes: I have a really bad day
Always: I see my nephew or nieces and smile and know everything is going to be okay

Sometimes: I say I'm going to go to bed early
Always: I find something to do that keeps me up late!

Makeup Monday

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Things have been really busy around here I hope to catch up on reading everyones blogs this week!

Okay now for makeup (yes I am a little behind... okay a lot behind) the last New Beauty Tube I got a few weeks ago had some great products in it. Today the one I want to talk about is the Dr. Brandt flexitone BB Cream. This product is awesome! There is no colors to choose from it is self adjusting coverage so you can't go wrong. I still used my primer beneath it but the product goes on very smooth. It is not feel as thick as most foundations which I love and the coverage is wonderful. You can use this without powder and head out the door. This product also moisturizes your skin which if your like me is always a huge plus.

Below is the BB cream I did finish with a light powder (to me it is a must and makes my blush goes on better)

What is your new go to product?

Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking... what really makes me happy, smile, feel good? What can I change so that I am happy more often? Stress has been one constant lately and I hate it. I know as we get older we change, life changes, our responsibility changes. I miss being the happy caring person I used to be. I hate that stress weighs me down. I miss the laughs, smiles, innocence of life. I miss finding happiness out the small things in life. I need to find a way to have happiness be something that is a constant not a every now and then state.

Sorry don't mean to be a drag today this is just something that has been on my mind almost constantly recently. Any suggestions?

What are you pinning?

I had a long weekend (I took off Monday) and it was wonderful! Friday night was family time my sisters, mom, niece and nephew along with the hubby's had dinner at Lindsey's house. Afterward L2, Michael, McK, Bryan and I watched a movie... (If you have not seen Courageous get it watch it and have tissues handy).

Saturday we got a call from Bryan's mom that she and my niece were coming to town and spending the night so we went to dinner with them and just spent the evening hanging out. I really wish we could see them more often!

Sunday we went to church and I have to say it was wonderful I really do like it there and I am looking forward to going again this week.

Monday was me time I spent the day cleaning, listening to music and reading it was wonderful and very much needed!
