My Fall Manis…

How many manis do you do you do or get done in a month?

Well don’t judge me, but in a week, I can do my nails any where from three to five times. I’m a SAHM of three. My two youngest boys are 13 and 14 my eldest is 24 and pretty self sufficient. Its just something I do for “ME” time it relaxes me. Self care and love is necessary for mental health and I find doing my nails works for me. Below I’ll be sharing all the Fall manis I did in the month of September and the start of October.

Sometimes life gets in the way…and that’s okay!

Everytime, I say I’m going to focus on my blog something comes up… I have a lot of things going on in my life. I am a mom of six (three boys ages 12, 13 and 23) and step mom to three (two young men ages 19, 28 and a beautiful young lady age 20) with the world to change and it overwhelms me from time to time. Yet, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Motherhood is challenging and the day to day struggles are building me up to be amazing. I’ve been fortunate to be a SAHM (stay at home mom) for my teo youngest. It wasn’t exactly by choice, but it happened when my children needed me the most. My two boys were struggling in school and it became my mission to assure them both a successful future.

Before, I was always so tired between working overnights & weekends and being a mom, life was kicking my butt. I had a discussion with my other half and expressed to him how I felt about failing at the most important thing in my life…being a MOM! He has always regardless of anything else been my rock.

It was hard to talk with friends about how bad I was feeling so I didn’t and heaven only knows how sad it made me. I am honestly so grateful for the support of my better half. I have to say that with all the things going wrong at the same time, my children gave me purpose. My support system became my little family unit.

Struggles were bound to come up, but things would always work out as long as my vision remained clearly focused on my family. I’ll blog when I can, when I remember to. I’ll polish my nails when I need to destress and it will be okay. No one can judge me as harshly as I’ve done in the past so Dr. Seuss was right all along…

It has always amazed me how you’re your biggest critic and only when you change how you see yourself will anything change. I’ll leave this here for now.

Happy polishing… Until next time be true to yourself!!!

MTK Design

I, like everyone else who’s fallen down the rabbit hole and refuses to climb out have favorite brands…A recent one for me is MTK Design, which I discovered through Polish Pickup (PPU). I bought several at this point but my last three have been top faves. My very first MTK was April 2018~There’s Coffee in that Nebula” its a gorgeous blue polish when cold, but warms to a rich latte color with pink, copper, gold shifting chameleon shimmer and it’s coffee scented 😍

Let me tell you a little about PPU…it takes place every month beginning the first Friday and ending Monday. They have so many amazing makers and the themes are voted on by the nail community that follows them. I’ve lived through my fellow polish ladies from month to month and their purchases. I’m able to get just a couple, if any at all.

Fast forward to today and I’ve loved every MTK Design contribution to the PPU thus far and the marker~Mary seems to have found a way to tempt me and keep me coming back to see what other awesomeness she comes up with.

Check out this line up from MTK Design for September, October and November…

Sept 2018~Check your Candy is a thermal polish with iridescent blue glitters, red & copper UCC flakies its a bright cobalt blue when cold and a pale blue when warm. Bonus times two its candy corn scented and glows in the dark.

Oct 2018~Embrace Darkness is thermal that when cold is oxblood red and warm goes to a bright red with red shimmer.

Nov 2018~Metal Goddess is a beautiful thermal that is dark blue when cold to blonde when warm.

For December the theme is “ENCHATED FOREST” there is a green MTK with my name on it and if you don’t know I love green… I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

You’re able to go and take a peek on PPU for December pretties and create a wishlist…

Also go check out MTK Design on Etsy. Mary has got a nice selection and offers full size and minis.

Shipping for PPU is a $3 flat rate. PPU opens on December 7th at 11am EST until December 10th at 9 pm EST
