Just one of those days

you can fill in the rest of those lyrics if you like. Yesterday was one of those days. Manicure one was going wrong half way through. One of those too many coaters that I added a glitter gradient too, a nail accessory I stupidly didn’t bend first, and just general ugh. After all the time it took I thought fine whatever its staying on. Real life intervened food needed dishing up, and the kitchen needed sorting after. It actually turns out Butter London’s fast drying topcoat doesn’t work well with nail art or multiple layers of polish. There was no fixing it. It occurred to me whilst ironing why it all went horrible, because it wasn’t what I originally planned to do. So that’s what I did. It didn’t pan out how I had hoped though.

Bit of prodding and another coat of lady and all was well. Even if you can still see the gold coming through……..its for effect okay ;). No idea how the dotted heart came about at all. Just kinda did it. Accidental valentines nails it seems.

It being a new year yesterday I did ‘something new’. That’s right I shocked myself with it. An exploder is what I am, so when I’m getting annoyed for a better word of it, it comes out. Especially when I’m at home. Don’t worry in a professional setting, and in the presence of complete random people it can be contained. Yep plaster a smile on that crap, and expel it when I get home. The explosion was contained greatly go me, until I woke up with a blinding headache most likely from the tension. That ‘something new’ will not be a new years resolution for me. New years resolutions aren’t really a thing for me, but I got to thinking in terms of my blog/hobby. Here’s what they are:

1) Carry on enjoying blogging. It provides me the perfect space for me to just do what makes me happy, and try to relax. I try not to fill it with personal things. Case in point this blog post haha. This blog was born from stress, and that’s why I don’t set myself exact days I post on/how many times I post a week/tell myself to never post a manicure that’s rubbish. It works well for me, and I do miss blogging regularly when its the end of semester at university. Crazy to think a blog could give me so much, but it does.

2) Heres the funny part: try to stick to my wish list. Stress shopping is a bad habit I need to kick even if it’s a bargain. Not that I regret my pretties!!

Can’t tell you how much better I feel now I’ve expelled some of that, even at this late hour. So thank you if your still reading, and for sticking with me people.

Thank you.
