The Nail Files 4/26/13

This week on The Nail Files....

I opted for something really easy. Pink, Purple Crackle, and Glitter three of my favorite things!! :)  I don't think I'd ever done pink and purple together but was feeling rather spunky this week, so there ya have it. lol 

Here's to already thinking about what to do for my nails next week,

101 Progress - Marpril

Marpril [mahr pruhl
     1. combination of the months March and April

      April 2013; Jessyism

I thought that title needed a little description. Anyway... It's time for a 101 in 1001 update. I haven't posted since mid February so here we go! 

~ Learned the harmony for "We Are Young" as sung by the Glee Cast. I can only sing it with the Glee Cast version, but I can sing it nonetheless!
~ Got a Pen-pal!!! YAY!! So I am bad and never sent off my postcards to the ladies in Canada and Spain BUT, I have a new pen-pal who lives in the states! She's a blogger friend who is also doing the 101 Challenge. We both wanted pen-pals so Voila! Pen pals! lol We have both sent and received letters so that makes it completely official!  

~ Since I have a pen-pal that obviously means that I did send a letter, and it was to a new friend! :)
~ I helped Andy start up his new catering business (Officially started on April 1st)
~ I own 100, yes 100, bottles of nail polish! Half way there and it hasn't even been a year yet. Oh, I forsee more than 200 bottles by the time my 1001 days is up.
~ I have 306 pens/pencils for my collection.

Song of the Month:
February: Mood Rings by Relient K
March: Like a Prayer by Madonna I swear that woman followed me around on my shoulder for at least a month!! (btw...that music video is very bizarre)
April: Belle from Beauty and the Beast I have woke up with very random songs stuck in my head this month everything from Pop and CCM to songs from Disney movies.

P.S. I am still refusing to talk about my weight loss, and my reading goals. You can ask me about my weight loss goal AFTER my hubby's baking class. 


The Nail Files!

I think I am finally creeping out from behind the funk that I have been in; painting my nails is actually starting to be enjoyable again. YAY!! Man the things winter will do to you! lol

This weeks design was simple, fun, and cute! Those are my three favorite descriptive words. :) For this design I used another Sinful Colors polish, Dream On (Matte), a white polish, a black shatter, and NYC's Matte Me Crazy top coat. I haven't really done any matte designs before because shiny, glittery, nails make me happy, but I think the matte top coat is growing on me.

Anyway, here are two pictures of my nails from this week and before you ask, Yes that is the same color in both pictures. I know, it's crazy but true. The Dream On color really took on a chameleon's essence and drastically changed depending on the lighting. The top picture is what it looks like in the bottle, so the purple hue really threw me for a loop.

It's Okay

It's OKAY...

...that I haven't really started my honors projects yet (Yes that is plural).
...that my final for my psychology class is due next Thursday and I haven't started it either. want a completely new wardrobe, but hate shopping for clothes. always have to have something sweet after I eat lunch or dinner.
...that everything has to be even both proportionately and numerically. be having a "Crystal withdraw", she lives in town but I haven't seen her in forever. I miss you Crystal!

I guess I'll stop while I have 6 listed, after-all I can't have just 7 items listed. LOL Does anyone else have any little quirks like that?

30 Things About Me: 20 Random Facts

After looking at the list of 30 things that I must disclose about myself, I've decided to start with my 20 random facts, which ironically is the first one on the list. lol There are several posts wandering around that ask you to list your favorite things, or have specific facts that they want you to answer, I will try to make these different. (I said try so don't judge if I list a couple of my favorites lol)

  1. I have never had a broken bone. 
  2. My first official job (other than babysitting) was at Firebird Raceway in Idaho. 
  3. While growing up I lived in the same house for 11 years and have moved 8 times since then.
  4. I suck at math; worst subject EVER. I have a love/hate relationship with math, I love to hate it. lol
  5. I listen to almost every genre of music. Music ♫ = Life
  6. I have worked at my current job for 9 years and I absolutely love it!
  7. I still have a stuffed animal collection.
  8. I could never begin to tell you what my favorite movie is, or what my favorite song/singer would be. Seriously. I wouldn't be able to even narrow down a favorite by genre.
  9. I have a tendency to always get the same meals at restaurants, I like what I like and I'm not too adventurous. It makes being married to a chef very interesting. lol
  10. I can rarely go one day without drinking coffee, it has been known to happen but not often. This year I have become a coffee snob and prefer French Press coffee over anything else. lol
  11. I have had epilepsy since I was a baby. 
  12. I am addicted to purses. I don't feel that I can ever have too many, my husband believes otherwise.
  13. I don't believe that you are ever too old to color with crayons.
  14. I am a professional procrastinator.
  15. I love crafts of all sorts but my latest craft has been knitting.
  16. I have never been to any of the New England states. I would love to go someday!
  17. I'm addicted to the Candy Crush game on Facebook.
  18. I would love to be a world traveler! I really want to visit Europe, Paris and England in particular. 
  19. I'm constantly on the look out for the perfect shampoo and conditioner (preferably one that doesn't cost an arm and a leg). I have yet to find the perfect combo for my temperamental hair.
  20. I have been singing since I could talk; I sing even when I don't know I'm singing.

YAY!! I came up with 20 which weren't your typical "My favorite (fill in the blank) is...." Hopefully even my close friends learned something new about me, probably not but I can dream. lol

Business Owners? When Did That Happen?!

My hubby has been in culinary school for the past few semesters and has been going back and forth with what he really wants to do after school. One thing that has always been in the plan was to open his own catering business. Well, he did it!! As of Monday April 1, 2013 he is now owner of Artistique Cuisine & Catering, LLC. - No joke ;) I am so proud of him!

He is putting together a bunch of stuff like the actual menu's and business cards, his website is up it's still under some construction but it's getting there. And of course we created a Facebook Page, because no company is complete without one! ;)

My hubby just has a few weeks of school left, then he will be an official Chef and will be able to put more focus into his new business. We are both super excited to start this new adventure. I can't wait to see where it will take us!

The Nail Files!

WOW...I remembered two link-ups in a row! Life must be slowing down a little bit?! HA! probably not but I can dream. I haven't been painting my nails as much lately. Honestly I have been depressed/in a funk since January and haven't really had the ambition to do much of anything. Which has included painting my nails *Readers Gasp*.... I *Know* right?! This weekend I got to spend some time with one of my girlfriends who lives out of state so we played games and painted our nails. Here are the designs we ended up with. :)

Rachel picked out a pretty shimmery teal, we topped it with a silver shatter, and added flowers on her thumbs and little dots to the other nails.

Rachel's Nails

I just got this new purple (Sinful Colors, Amethyst)  and fell in love with it! I've been looking for a good purple that doesn't have any shimmer, found one. :)

My Nails

 I love taking pictures of my girlfriends designs and mine together, it makes for fun memories. :)

Both designs :)

Quizzical Question: Where are you from?!

I was just looking at my pageview stats from when I started my blog until now. The highest pageviews originate from the US, which doesn't surprise me but the next country on the list is Russia. Russia?! I don't think I even know anyone in Russia. It's kinda cool to see that I may have people that far away who are reading my blog but that makes me wonder where you are from. If you are reading this post please comment with what State and/or Country that you are from; I would really love to know! :)
