This week has been summed up by one word… Olympics!  I am a HUGE Olympics fan, and I would basically watch it all evening if Nate wasn’t getting sick of it.  I definitely laid claim to the TV Tuesday and Thursday nights for the gymnastics Team and All-Around events… highlight of the games for me!  GO USA!

Diet began Monday and after basically wanting to chew my arm off the first day, it’s been going pretty well.  Lots of protein, fruits and veggies, and keeping the sugars and processed foods to a minimum.  Have you tried these TURKEY BURGERS from Trader Joe’s?  I season mine up well before cooking with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a smoky rub… very yummy!

I am finally headed to get a haircut tomorrow.  I had to switch stylists, and trying to select a new stylist with no recommendations is tough!  Combine that with the craziness of everyday life, and it’s been over a year since I’ve been to the salon!  My hair is in the worst shape it’s ever been, so I am surely looking forward to an afternoon of pampering.

Have you all tried any of the “gel effect” polishes?  The only one I have tried is the Miracle Gel from Sally Hansen, and I’m kinda on the fence about it.  Everyone is talking up the new ones from Essie, but I HATE their regular polishes so I am hesitant to try.  Any suggestions?

I started a new blog series this week covering the basics of makeup application.  Each post will cover the How To’s of one type of makeup… this week we started with primers.  You can check out the first edition of the series HERE!

  1. Hair! Oh, the HAIR! It’s a nerve-wracking crisis to switch. I think it’s always worse for those who are determined to keep their hair long or whose hair grows REALLY slow. You can’t just say, “Oh, well, in a couple of months I’ll do something different!” And, oh, the agonies of switching when your hair is also CURLY!

  2. switching hair stylists is the worst! Hope you love your new do!
