Mermaid vibes

         I placed an order for a few new polishes that I just fell in love. I mainly really wanted to stamp and see how the shade named 9ml Green Duochrome Nail Stamping Polish Chameleon Lacquer Nail Art Plate Printing 001 from beauty big bang.  I can say that as a nail base color, applies well, and has fantastic color pay off.  Stamping so far I have to do some testing because I did a swap sticker to the bottles and the doesn't seem to show so well.

    So the bottles on stamping polish came, and I was so excited. The colors both looking beautiful in the bottles.  Since I had some swap stickers that I bought from Maniology to, place them on the and stamped out the with a lace image. The swap me stickers are black and white. This is supposed to help with you see how a stamping polish will look on a light or dark color nail. I think this is a great idea wished more companies would add them.

  I used a base coat on my nails. I think that I could have just painted my nails with one coat, but I had a few that I wanted to fix. After a few minutes, I then applied a speedy coat and thought I was done. I was wrong, started thinking about summer vibes when I looked over and seen my mermaid scaled stencils from whats up nails.
     I started to look at the rest of my collection on stamping polish. Really for this step, any nail polish would do, just work quickly with regular polishes since the dry quicker. I went with black finish from Maniology. I added the stencil to the nail, painted on the black to a makeup sponge then added that to my nails. I love using a makeup sponge since it is more comfortable in my opinion to control. I used if I was working on a mix media or crafting project.  Once I was done added some smudge free coat, let it dry and add a glossy top to finish the look.

    Here are a few tips that I learned while working on this mani
1) You want to place the stencil on really well, you use it whole or cut to fit to size.

2) Use a little bit of nail polish, build up the color. I find a sponge helps with that and if you get too much on the sponge, then just dap some of it off.

3) You can use one stencil for your whole hand start with the pinky and so on but use another stencil for the other because of the polish will start to build up and stick of the stencil will lose it hold.

A new path.

I believed that when I started the down this road for better health that it so at the time what was best for me and for a time that it worked. The only problem was that I realized that my journey wasn’t just about my physical health it was about my mental health as well. I would not trade anything in for the help, the love and support that I got during my challenges. So thank you, everyone, for that.

     I am not a hundred percent where this new path is taking me, but I am feeling a lot more confident and focusing more on my inner self. I feel like I have made a significant improvement in my sessions. I do know that some months, weeks or even days are going to be better than others. I am learning to ride the waves, enjoy the journey and stop beating myself up. It started with looking at things that I wanted to change so clothing and makeup have played a massive part in this new mind swift.

     I know that some will say that those are just temporary fixes and your right. I …

While at the beach.

Yes, I am a plus size women at the beach. Yes, I am wearing a two-piece swimsuit to the beach. Yes, I am having a bit of trouble with my top, that I had to readjust it a few times, it is the beach, and these things happen.  So it the couple that kept looking at me that was very rude so much so that I smiled in your face. To older people made feel out of place, again I laughed and kept looking around the beach is so beautiful to look at.
    It is the beach for crying out loud, I won't stop going, stop smiling or wearing my swimsuit. It is brand new. I got it from torrid. Maybe a bigger size may have helped, but summer is almost over.  I know that I don’t have to explain where I go my suit at, getting a bigger size or even that summer is almost over. Maybe to help someone find a great swimsuit for next summer, avoid sizing issues and I don’t want summer to end.

       I have stuff like this happen to me all the time, with all my clothes. Doesn’t matter about the fit or the col…

Working out because you love your body.

Before I start this post would love to thank everyone that has been stopping by to read and give me your input on the blog post. So thank you for my Dia friends and sisters. You all are amazing.

   I am not a doctor, coach or worked for the health department in any way. I do highly suggest that you see your doctor before working out. Take it slow,  it is not about always about losing weight it. It about building your inner and outer strength.  You also may feel some stress relief as well and can improve in a lot of other areas of your life.

     Something that read which really blew my mind,  workout because you love your body. This has helped me a lot in finally enjoying the journey. I trying not bet myself if I miss a day and listen to my collection. I have been trying to not go by the numbers on the scale but how my clothes are fitting, and that has made me a lot happier.  I have also been doing a ketosis ish) diet, working out a few days, dance class once in a while.
