January I’m Loving
I thought it would be fun to start a new series called “I’m Loving”! Each month I’ll be sharing a few products/items that I love or have been loving that month.
I love wearing nail polish, but I hate painting my nails because I usually mess them up during the drying phase. I’ve been digging ColorStreet because they sell 100% real nail polish strips. They attached to your nails like a sticker would, but instead of being an actual sticker, it’s real nail polish, meaning it lasts longer than a sticker and you can treat your nails just like how you’d treat them with regular nail polish – adding a top coat, using nail polish remover to take them off, etc.
A blogger I follow on instagram , Layla, shared about these nails and showed how to apply them. I was instantly on board. I’ll admit, there is a bit of a learning curve involved in the application process. The first set I put on wasn’t perfect, but it really only took that first time and I felt like I better understood how to apply them.
The tips I’ve learned from applying colorstreet nails is to:
1. Definitely use the alcohol wipes they provide to wipe your nails clean.
2. Apply from your pinky to your thumb.
3. Use a fingernail file to help remove the excess nail polish each from finger. You can also use your thumb nail to help perforate the polish, but I think the nail file does a cleaner job.
4. Apply a top clear coat.
5. Apply another top clear coat 3-4 days later.
The top coats are optional. I just like to get the most wear from my polish and using the top coat protects the polish.
I don’t sell colorstreet nails, I buy them from Layla – here’s her link.
My favorite colors? Upper East Side, sahara jewel, and maine-ly mums.
My family probably thinks this one is funny. Both my mom and sister brew their own kombucha and for the longest time I didn’t want anything to do with it. But I know it’s good for gut health, and especially when cold season started, I decided to try it. I’m hooked and it’s something I actually look forward to drinking each day. My favorite flavor is “ginger” and I rotate through GT’s Living Food and Kevita.
I totally go through phases with different Larabars. For a long time I loved the cookie dough one, then this fall I loved the mint chocolate chip bar. But now I’m loving the truffles. My grocery store put the truffles on clearance so I bought 4 bags. Went back the next week to see the price was even lower, so I bought 2 more bags. But now my grocery store doesn’t carry the truffles!! My favorite flavors are mint chocolate chip and chocolate. I like the truffles a lot because they are gluten and dairy free, and for a while there I was attempting to cut out dairy. That’s another story for another post.
Dreaming of a Disney vacation
We’ve had multiple friends go to Disney within the past couple of months and I think I am catching the Disney bug. We have no plans to go to Disney but it’s been fun to watch youtube videos about Disney and dream :)
The Broken Harts podcast
I am a huge podcast fan. Of course it started with Serial season 1 a few years ago, then Undisclosed came out – both are SO good. Ever since I’ve been hooked on true crime podcasts. I just discovered The Broken Harts podcast last week, and I binge listened to as many episodes as they have out. I usually listen during the work day when I’m scheduling for social media. This story is interesting and different from the typical victim/murderer cases.

Love the new series, we are planning to go to Disney in 2020 to the new stars wars land, they are some good you tuber out there to show you everything that’s is happening at Disney.
