Tagging Back into the Swing of Things

I know I have been shamefully out of the blogging world. No time during the school year, no time during the summer, apparently. But here is a little something to get back into the blogosphere. I was tagged by aka KAREN to do this tag! (in my HS days they were called surveys and you didn't have to "tag" just assumed people were interested enough in you to want to read this stuff, ;-)

Here goes!

4 things found in my purse



-makeup bag


(Whoa, I am interesting)

4 things in my room

-my makeup desk

-my bed

-my TV

-my HELMER!!!

4 things I have always wanted to do

-go to school to become a cosmetologist (and finish)

-be skinny/lose my excess weight

-play professionally in an orchestra pit for musical theater

-persue singing and acting, on Broadway...or any other stage that will have me.

4 things I am currently into

-painting my nails and nail art

-teaching music


-getting better on my ukulele

4 things I bet you didn't know about me

-I am indifferent to getting married or having kids. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, it doesn't and that's fine too. I very much identify with the character Katherine Watson from the movie Mona Lisa Smile: (on marriage) "yes, I suppose I will someday, I'm just not going to plan my life around it."

-I have secret aspirations to become a Youtube star.

-I would love to get a Ph. D. In something...

-I cry on a daily basis. I usually find something so beautiful, so sad, so moving, so tragic or so sweet happening each and every day, that a day in which I don't cry is rare. I'm not talking about bawling, but a tear or two is usually shed whether it's from a scene in a movie, a paragraph in a book, a child being kind to their parent (for a change) or a line praising God or His son in a hymn, something usually makes me cry.

4 songs I can't get out of my head

-Wig in a Box, Hedwig and the Angry Inch

-I Dreamed a Dream, Les Miserables

-Speechless, Lady GaGa, The Fame Monster

-Defying Gravity, Wicked, the Musical

4 people I tag





And because this is supposed to be a beauty/girl related blog, here is my NOTW: 8+ days of wear. Essie's Pretty Edgy, Nailtek Foundation base and Quicken top coat. Impressed with both the color and wear.

And as for what I have been up to, beautywise, I have been trying to grow out the entire length of my nail. As soon as a week pops up, I file them back down to nubbins. I will try to take an update pic when this polish comes off. I have some shots of the nail prior to this. My nails will be MUCH better, once all the damage is gone. I have been taking Biotin with the advice from (I tag her too!!!) Biotin is what she said she takes to help her nails, and I have to tell you I think it helps. I did my research before taking this vitamin and I think my nails grow faster. As for stronger, well, I will have to do an in-depth review when my nails are all better.

Thanks for reading! I will try to be back sooner than last time!


  1. I love that colour! it looked terrible on me.. but looks fantastic on you!

  2. I'm really glad to hear you feel the Biotin is making a difference for you! Thanks so much for the tag; I'll bookmark this and post it soon. :-)
