This necklace fills my heartspace with warm fuzzies. A few years ago, I was training for the Manitoba Marathon. Eight weeks prior to the marathon, while I was in Brazil, I got sick. Really sick, with mono. I don’t think I’ve ever been quite that sick before. Due to said illness, I wasn’t able to participate in the race.
One of my coworkers, another runner, was going to be running the Manitoba Half-Marathon. At the Expo, she picked me up this charm, knowing I wasn’t going to be able to run the race, knowing I was a bit depressed about it. Every time I put this necklace on, it makes me smile.
I must take a moment to mention how much I love my current nail polish. The love is partly rooted in the brand itself – Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure – and partly in the amazing colour – Café Au Lait. The website claims that it is a manicure in a bottle, and let me tell you, it TOTALLY is.
The Complete Salon Manicure brand is particularly special as the brush isn’t the typical round nail polish brush, but flat, with a bit of a tapered point. It is so EASY to apply, it almost looks like I have a professional manicure. And I painted my nails yesterday afternoon between tweeting and working. It took no time, and looks fantastic. I generally prefer natural shades on my fingers, and CRAZY EXUBERANT OH EM GEE colours on my toes. Café Au Lait is the perfect shade of neutral, with a touch of über trendy greige. I also have Guilty Pleasure, a gorgeous gold colour that I adore. I actually don’t think I’m going to need to worry about getting manicures anymore – I can do it myself.
Huzzah for budget friendly finger nail solutions!
(BTW: I’m just excited about the nail polish because it is awesome. This mini-review is coming from there, no one paid me or anything for writing it. It is just plain old awesome. That is all!)
