Newest Essie & OPI additions

Within the past week or so I have ordered about 8 or so Essie & OPI polishes. I have had some polishes of random brands but none that I loved so I decided to start a new, likeable nail polish collection. I'm going to show you the ones that I have received as of today and hopefully within the next couple weeks, I will be able to review each one as I wear them.

Essie- Fiji

Essie- Peach Daquari

Essie- Penny talk

Essie- A Crewed Interest

OPI- Mrs. O' Leary's BBQ

OPI- Bubble bath

Seche Vite- Dry Fast Top Coat

This is what I have gotten so far. I tend to like light creamy pinks, and dark burgundy, wine-y colors. I do have a to-get list on my Pinterest of polishes I like that I want to get over time. Probably the top of my list right now is to get a gorgeous brown color.

I have about 2 or 3 more nail polishes coming probably tomorrow and over the weekend. I plan to paint my nails and use the Seche Vite tomorrow. I have Mrs. O Leary's BBQ on right now but I will put up a review of that later. I also have some stuff from VS that I will probably review.

53 day challenge

Hi all! I know I haven't been posting much and this post may not interest many but we are nearing the half way point of this fall semester, and I am falling behind on my goal.  I have renewed my goal and I am giving myself a 53-day challenge. First let me start be explaining what and why. Some of you may know that I am a Court Reporting student.  I am at my last couple speeds, nearing the end. once we finish all of our speeds, we qualify for a State test, and from there, once you pass it, you can finally be a working reporter! They have about 4 or 5 Stats Tests a year. I had origonally made a goal to qualify for the upcoming state test which is in the second week of January but you have to qualify for it by the 30th of November. That is where this 53 day challenge comes in.  I do not know if it is possible to get my last four tests done by then.. but I am going to really live, eat, and breath on my machine to try to make that happen.  I am in my 200's speed. I have to get two tests in this speed., which I feel REALLY close to getting and then I will move into my 225's speed and I have to get two "mock tests" which consists of a 180, 200, and 225 speed test all in one. I have to pass two of those,  they mimic the State test. On top of that I am taking a english and medical terminology class and I am interning.  I will be putting interning on the back burner and just intern on my day off and during the Christmas break, since we have a month off, I will finish my hours then.  Everyday, starting today, instead of relaxing and watching tv or spending my time on the computer, I will be on my machine from the time I get home from school until I go to bed writing to the Tv and also things online that we have to practice with, while also building my dictionary.  I think I can make this happen.  I'm hoping sharing it with you-all will help me with the extra push I need.  I will report weekly and update you-all on any news I have that week of if I typed any tests, passed any tests, or anything like that.

Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers :)

Where were you on 9/11? Link-up

Hi all! Today I am linking up with  Wild & Precious on where were you on 9/11

It is honestly hard to believe that 9/11 was ten years ago.  On 9/11 I was about 11-years-old in the 6th grade.  The day started out like any other day. Woke up, went to school, went through the morning's classes and then comes lunchtime.  Walking into the lunchroom I could just feel that the atmosphere was very strange, unlike every other day.  Being so young I can remember some details like what I was wearing or what I was eating.. I assume that I got my lunch and sat down at my class table.  Once sitting down there were so many rumors going around.  You saw kid after kid after kid being called out of the lunchroom to leave, that their parent had come to pick them up. That in itself lead us to believe that something was going on.  Then there were rumors going around that our school was going to be bombed.  Can you imagine the fear?  Hearing a rumor that your school was going to be blown up?  Now that I think about it, I cant believe that was said but I think it stemmed from parents informing the school and kids overhearing but not hearing the whole story..who knows.  Anyways, lunchtime ended and it was time to go to class.  Our teacher would meet us outside of the lunchroom each day to take us back to class, and there she was.  We stopped at the restroom on the way to class and then and there is where we found out what had happened.  We weren't told much. Just that some planes had been flown in some buildings and that it was a terrorist attack.
I get scared very easily so just hearing that really scared me.  The rest of the day we just stayed in our one class, we didn't switch and all we did was sit in class and watch TV every now and then on the coverage, but they would only show us a little.  Kids kept being pulled from class to leave.  I would say about half of my class was left that day, me being one of them.  We all seriously thought we were going to die. We were so young and had never heard of anything like this.  Everytime someone would leave we would seriously tell them bye and we loved them and hopefully we'd see them again.
Once school was over, I had to go to daycare.  Since us(5th and 6th graders) were old enough to know about it, we talked about it with the teachers who came to pick us up from the daycare center but we were told not to mention it to the younger kids when we got to the daycare center.  Which made sense because they were too young to be finding out from anyone but their parents.  After that it is pretty much a blur.  My mom came and picked us up after she got off work and when we got home she told my brother and we talked about it.  As much as i hated watching the coverage, I was glued to the TV.  And as much as it scared me, I couldn't help but watch.  I just remember being scared for a long time about it.  I didn't personally know anyone in New York or Pennsylvania but a friend of mines Aunt lived in New York and worked in one of the Towers and that day she just so happened to call in that she would not be going into work that day.  I just remember feel sad and scared and helpless because I was sitting at home while all those people were going through H3ll. I eventually became not so scared about it. I will never forget that day and it sickens me to see it on TV specials, to see what these people did to our country and to see the people and hear their voices on TV of the hijackers, just makes me sick. But I am forever grateful for our men and women in our service for protecting us and will always pray for those men and women and children who died that day and for the everyday people who became heros that day.  It is amazing how much of a tradegy it was but could bring our Nation together so much.

Have you watched any specials on it? I have. I watched one and just one thing that sticks out to me is one man, who had a wife, became a hero that day.  He saved 77 lives, but lost his own when the building collapsed. I know there were many many other heroes that day.

Where were you that day?

Fill in the Blank Friday

.   One of my happiest moments ever was  probably when Michael bought me our first furbabie, Scout. It wasn't a suprise because we went toegther to get him but at the time I couldn't believe he was so willing to get me the dog I wanted especially for the price. We won't go into that. haha. Scout has been the love of our life ever since! 

2.  Summer is wedding season and weddings are   amazing! I have only been to one wedding this summer and it looks like it will be the only one but I love to attend weddings! They are so beautiful and I really believe in marriage. 

3.  This summer   has been a wonerful summer. I really haven't been up to much since I have been on school all summer but Michael got the opportunity to go to Italy which it stunk for him to be gone for a whole 5 weeks but it was worth is and I'm glad he got to enjoy it and I have really just been doing school non stop.
4.  My summer food of choice has been  really I don't have seasons that I eat certain food but I guess this summer I have really been eating just american food the most!

5.  My summer uniform has been   shorts, t-shirts, and casual dresses

7.  My summer anthem is     Alan Jackson- Good time

6.  If I could spend the entire summer in one location I would choose     somewhere tropical like st. lucia

A lot was going on in life and I was young so I couldnt go on my own to see him and the only other way I wasnt willing to go with my dad and his evil girlfriend so.. didn't. meaning I didn't see him before he passed away.

Goodbye FB!.. for now!

Dear FB.. aka Facebook,
Because you clearly can consume my time on your nonsense, I have decided for the next 2 weeks, I will not be logging in! I have a goal to meet that is going to require some attention and that is the time slot I am giving myself. Maybe I will be off longer, but I will hopefully be reporting that I have met my goal before the 2 weeks are up. buh bye!

lol. Yes, you read that right- I am not goint to be logging into facebook for about 2 weeks. I am in my 180 speed in Court Reporting and I need to get 2 tests to be in my 200's which I am hoping to reach by the 17th. Although i feel verrrryyy close to getting them, I am going to be needing to spend more time practicing on ym machine that way I can get them pronto!

How was your weekend? I cannot wait to get back to school this week- I know, I sound crazy! BUT I am just so pumped and ready to get these tests that I don't have any time to waste.

I didn't do much this weekend, just relaxed for the most part- perfect weekend for me! Besides Mr. Charming being in Italy still.

til next time!

Happy Saturday quick post!

Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. I had a great friday, Mr. Charming's sister had her graduation friday night so I attended that with his family and other than that my weekend has been pretty calm and relaxing. Definately counting down the days until Michael gets back BUT still have about 25 more days :(  but I have a feeling these next 3 1/2 weeks are going to fly by. Between school and a trip one weekened, it'll be here in no time.
well I just wanted to post a little something before I went to bed. I will hopefully have something to post about tomorrow, but, we will see! Goodnight y'all!
