I used to spend upwards of $50 per appointment to have my nails done with damaging acrylics. More for a gel nail treatment. An expensive but necessary step if I wanted to have pretty, strong, painted nails that lasted for at least a few weeks. A couple of years ago, I started to use gel press on nail kits as an alternative. They only cost about $10 per box, they’re easy to install (just add adhesive, press, and file), and they look almost exactly like a gel treatment at the nail salon. Here’s a recent installation of gel press on nails that I did:
Things That Make Life Easier
It ain’t easy being a single woman who lives by herself. You have to take the garbage out, get rid of bugs, and look out for yourself. You have to be a maverick of sorts—resourceful and resilient.
But living on your own can also be very peaceful and relaxing. I mean, for one, there’s no need to argue with a crazy roommate or boyfriend who leaves their stuff around the house and piles up dirty dishes. You can dress however you want when you’re cooking eggs in the morning. You have privacy, and your home stays exactly the way you want it to be every day.
I’m sort of a sentimental type. I like to hold onto traditional things… like old TV sets that have been around for 10+ years. Well that’s not 100% true. I hold onto them because I haven’t figured out how to properly get rid of them yet! I have missed several electronic recycling days.
I have this one television that is about 10 years old and still functioning perfectly. It’s been out of commission for a while, but I decided to figure out how I could use it with my Google Chromecast device. It’s actually quite simple thanks to a simple tool that’s available at Amazon called an AV to HDMI Converter.
Ten seconds after I first sat outside with my new canopy chair I started getting stares. People actually stopped right in front of me, they asked “what is that and where did you get it?” I let them know that it was a canopy beach chair that someone I know had found. The canopy chair is like a regular beach chair except that it has a removable hood that can be pulled up to cover you from the sun.
Now, the canopy beach chair is widely available on Amazon.com. There are several styles available with varied shapes, sizes and features. You will definitely want to add one to the top of your list of outdoor summer products to purchase for fun outings this summer. It’s amazing for keeping the sun out of your eyes and your skin safe from UV rays.
I love my cats and want them to have the best when it comes to both food and water. Since I drink filtered water, I prefer to give my cats the same. A friend told me about the PetSafe Drinkwell Stainless Multi-Pet Fountain, which dispenses water to pets like a drinking fountain. Here is my quick review of this water fountain for cats.
– made of stainless steel (no toxic plastic carcinogens)
– holds 1 gallon of water that is filtered, making the water taste great
– multiple cats can drink water at the same time
– ability to adjust the flow of water
– ability to choose different streams
– replaceable filters (foam & carbon filters)
– water pump is fairly quiet
I’m convinced now. Avon Skin So Soft is one of the best mosquito repellents.
After hearing about the recent mosquito concerns, I knew that it was even more important to protect myself and family from potential mosquito bites. Products advertised in stores don’t always work. In fact, if you go to some regions, like the South USA, bugs look at common mosquito repellent sprays like seasoning on their “meal.” So I decided to go back to an old-school, throw back solution for keeping mosquitoes off of you: Avon Skin So Soft bath oil. This has been the most effective solution for me this summer — especially since I do a lot of gardening.
