It's so hard to get a good picture of the animals. I don't think I'll ever be an animal photographer, I think it would be fun though. This is Blue, he is part pit bull. He's 8 months old & very cute.

Spring cleaning

Even though it doesn't feel like Spring here just yet, I've been doing some Spring cleaning. I had magazines from 2012 & 2013 to go through. It took me 6 months.

I have a bunch of sweaters to get rid of. I already brought 1 trashbag to Goodwill. I'd like to sell these online. I have about 50 tank tops, so I might go through & get rid of some of them too.

It feels so nice getting rid of things. I want to purge my whole closet. Boots, pocketbooks, jewelry etc... Make room for some new stuff. Get rid of things that I don't wear.

Nail Files. Week # 198

This week I have on China Glaze~Splish Splash & Essie~Jamaica Me Crazy. I added Sally Hansen Diamond flash coat because Splish Splash is a matte. I love the blue, but it kept chipping. I had to re-do it everyday since I painted them. I will be changing them on Sunday.

Mommy & Me Monday

I was taking a few pics of my new sunglasses & Tara ended up photo bombing me. I think we were sitting a parking lot waiting for some reason. We do a lot of car selfies.

Nail files. Week # l97

I just bought this polish on Monday. I don't think I'll be buying anymore Salon perfect glitters/mixed polishes. I have 2 more & they dried up really quick. This is pretty thick & since I opened the bottle it's gotten even thicker. I have China Glaze~Pinking out the Window on underneath & the SP is Rough around the Edges.

Beauty corner

Recently I won a giveaway from Kristina @ The Feminine Files. I got a few Pacifica products. I've never tried their products before. I got some coconut facial wipes, they smell so good. Also Alight Multi-mineral BB cream. So far I really like it, but I haven't been using it that long.

I bought this new quick dry primer spray for my hair. My hair is so thick that it takes forever to dry. I blow dry it in the Winter. I love the smell of this, but it hasn't helped my hair dry any quicker. So I won't be purchasing it again.

Volunteering~A kitten, a puppy & 2 dogs on my head

I didn't get to walk any dogs today. But I went in with this little girl, Chloe to clean her cage. She is 7 months old & really playful.

 There was an adorable kitten waiting to have surgery. I can't post a photo because she isn't up for adoption.
 I went in the room & sat with this cat. She was really friendly & very fluffy.

I also went into another cage to clean it out. There were 2 chihauhaus in there. Bruiser, who is 11 & Beanie, who is 8. They were both really nervous & panting & shaking the whole time I was in there. I was kneeling down & 1 climbed up me & ended up on my shoulders/neck. Then the other 1 did that too. Good thing they were small. I hope they get adopted soon. They have to go together.

Nail Files. Week # 196

This week I had on Sinful colors shine~Prosecco & Sally Hansen Triple Shine~Pool party. I've been doing nail files for so long you think I would get better at doing my nails. Sorry about the messy sides. Another problem that I have is I can't sit still. So most of the time I smudge my nails. I'm trying different quick dry top coats. I got Seche Vite finally, but I hate the smell & I think it bothers my allergies. Today I bought Sally Hansen Diamond flash top coat. I saw someone recommend that. So I'll see how that goes.

March Goals

I'm a bit late on my Monthly goals. I have a few that I am working on already. So here they are:

1. Go through my closet & get rid of some more clothes.
2. Go for a walk outside, once we have a warm day.
3. Finish going through my old magazines & get rid of them.
4. Do some Smashbook pages. I haven't done any in a really long time.
5. Put away some of my Winter clothes. Even though it will still probably be cold.
6. Make 2 new recipes this month.

Nail files. Week #195

This week I've had on China Glaze~Sweet Hook & Sinful colors Bloomblast~Petal be the Day. The China Glaze has been chipping really bad all week. I keep re-doing it. I've been using Seche Vite too on top. I don't love the new Bloomblast polish either. I'm glad that I only got 1. They have a pink & orange (I wouldn't buy orange, only for Halloween/October maybe). I love glitter, but I also hate it at times. This was pretty thick & lumpy. I love purple & blue, so I thought I would like it.

I walked this cute dog today. I feel horrible because I can't remember his/her name. I see so many dogs & cats when I go to the shelter. When I went to take him out, he brought his baby with him. I thought that was so cute. He carried the baby with him the whole way & only dropped him once. I think it is a squirrel. His baby is bigger than him. This made me smile. Animals are so funny. The dog is a 1 year old Tsi shu.

New Month, Welcome March

I don't think I've ever been so excited for a month to be over. February was rough & it's a short month too. I'm trying to think positive that it will warm up & will start to feel like Spring. I can get outside & go for a walk.
