All day, every day, all I wanna do is paint my nails…
Itchy! Wait — is that a mood?
I don’t know, but it might as well be, because scratching is just about the only thing on my mind. I switched fabric softeners last weekend, and I think I might be allergic to the new one, ack!
I rewashed everything last night — the bed sheets, bath towels and a lot of my clothes — and used a different detergent and fabric softener, both of them unscented.
I think it’s starting to help… The itch isn’t quite as bad as it was yesterday.
- Stripes or polka dots?
Polka dots! They’re just so cheerful.
- What’s your go-to quickie breakfast?
Oatmeal with almond milk and sugar, which I like to call “my morning gruel.” LOL! It’s quick and easy on my tummy, and I usually have a good run when I exercise after I eat a bowl of oatmeal.
- Have you been watching the Olympics?
Absolutely! Last night we watched the swimming, synchronized diving and some of the women’s gymnastic semifinals.
I think the coverage has even been a little better this year. I feel like I’m seeing more stories about more athletes than usual. Some years it seems like the networks just focus on a handful of athletes. I like the long, fancy profile stories, too, but sometimes I think the hype goes a little overboard and can even influence the games.
It’s just amazing to me how much grace Olympic athletes show under such extreme pressure. They work their entire lives, and it all comes down to a single moment. It’s very inspiring.
Also, not gonna lie! — I like to see what the athletes are up to in the beauty department, like all the cute manis/pedis this year. Almost every one of the women competing in swimming and diving yesterday was sporting something special on their nails. Oh, and the gals who wear eye makeup to the pool? LOVE IT! Women after my own heart.
- How often do you wear bronzer?
Almost every day. I think it gives my face some warmth and helps define my cheeks.
- Cream eyeshadows: love ’em or leave ’em?
Love ’em! No fallout, and they’re usually very easy to blend. Plus, they’re versatile. I can wear one alone or as a base for powder shadow.
- When was the last time you rode a Ferris wheel?
Oh, geez… It’s been a while. Maybe 2003 or 2004 at the County Fair.
- What would be the first sentence on page 226 of your autobiography?
“2006 was a good year — the year I discovered Nutella.”
- What are your three favorite places to browse for beauty products?
Sephora, Target and the MAC counter at the Northgate Mall.
- Weekly goals:
Just one this week — to be inspired by the Olympics and to channel that inspiration in my own way.
At the end of every day, I want to be able to say that I did my best and left nothing behind.
Good morning, friend! How goes it? I hope you had a nice weekend and were able to sneak in some meow time for yourself (it’s important!).
It’s another Monday, which means 1) we have a full week of fun ahead of us, and 2) itâ€™s time to check in with the Monday Poll.
