Three Things We Love To Do On The Weekend!

What do you like to do on the WEEKEND? Do you like to rest, clean, party, or 101 million other things that are out there to do! Do you stay at home and unwind from the week or are you the weekend party animal? I think I go in stages. A couple of years ago I was out every weekend, nowadays I just want to CHILL!

Weekends Are The Best To Unwind!

When it comes to weekends, I try not to make a lot of plans. If I had it my way, I would lay in bed all weekend drinking coffee, eating chips, and watching “YOU” on Netflix, but that is only a wish. Most people take the weekend to unwind from the week though.

We need to remember that weekends are blessings because we create memories on the weekends.

I enjoy COMFORT on the weekend.

T-shirts are a MUST on weekends.  

Usually, during the week, you have to dress up for work, so I love to ROCK MY FAVORITE T-SHIRTS on the weekends. Why weekends? Why not? I have more time to show off the shirt and have people comment, “Oh, I like your T-shirt” or ask me where I got it from- like this t-shirt from Boredwalk TShirts Los Angeles. They have T-shirts for EVERYONE! 

I love this shirt because it is SO ME- Cute but Prickly and I love the fact that the cactus looks like it is flipping you off- or is it just me? Boredwalk Tshirts have the best sayings, so if you are a t-shirt person, you better check them out and get some trendy tee’s in your wardrobe before spring is here. Shirts with sayings or funny pictures are the perfect ice breaker. How many times have you commented on someone’s T-shirt- I know I have a MILLION TIMES…ok, maybe 1000. 

Next weekend throw on your favorite t-shirt and some jeans and you are set. Go for a walk downtown and see how many people commit on your shirt. I know I would if I saw you.  

Get my nails done!

I love to get my nails done. Men too- my man likes to go in and get a pedicure when I go in to get my nails done. I work with my hands, so they need to look good all the time. Sitting in a chair and having someone pamper you is AMAZING!  

Go in every couple weeks to get your nails done- it also does your self-love some good too. When you feel good on the outside, you will also feel good inside. Or least I do. Something about getting your nails done all pretty makes me feel like a new woman. Weird, I know, but it is something I love to do for myself. Pretty nails are my thing, and I enjoy doing this on the weekend. 

Read a book on the weekend.

During the week, I’m so busy with my work, family, and household requirements that I rarely have time to read anymore. I love books that are easy but entertaining, so I found that young adult books are exactly what I like to read. 

Let me tell you about the book I’m reading now…WARDENS OF ETERNITY (just released) by Courtney Moulton (author of the acclaimed Angelfire series) #OwnVoices. If you like an action-packed page-turner, which blends history, mythology, and magic, then this book is for YOU!  

Such a smooth read that keeps me wanting more. Every night before bed, I try to read some pages before my mind shuts down. It is about a young woman, and the days leading up to World War II. She has to rely on her wit and magic to outmaneuver the Nazis and ancient Egyptian gods to prevent global destruction. Right- sounds exciting, huh- IT IS! 

Ziva is descended from Egyptian royalty, so her magic has been passed down. Her parents abandoned her when she was 3 yrs old in New York. Some parents! The story takes place fifteen years later, and Ziva is learning how to control her magical skills. She has a lot of power, and very evil people want to take that all away from her- want to know what happens well, you better get yourself a copy NOW on Amazon. 

Now I shared three things I love to do on the weekends, but there is so much more fun to have- please share what you like to do on the weekend.

Have You Tried Superfood Supplements?

The world of supplements always seems to be evolving. This is partly the result of consumers being more open and curious about the possible benefits of vitamins and minerals. Additionally, it’s also driven by how many new options are available to us, including supplements formulated with superfood ingredients.

Are These the Most Opaque Nail Polishes?

Northern Nail Polish
Beauty Brite Disclosure
I enjoy pampering myself once in a while, but I’ll admit that I don’t regularly keep up with having my nails done. Mostly because I don’t have a lot of time to do them, and I can’t always justify spending money on getting my nails done when I can do them myself. On the flip side, I can never turn down the opportunity to test out a new (to me) nail polish brand to see how it stacks up to other, well-known brands. Spoiler alert — I may have found one of the most opaque nail polishes, and it comes from Northern Nail Polish.

As a blogger, I love being able to test out the newest products in makeup, and skincare. One type of product I’m not always the biggest fan of is nail polish. I enjoy doing my nails when I want to relax, and I try to treat myself to a manicure every couple of months. However, I’ve never been a huge nail polish person. That might change when I was given the opportunity to test out some fun, glitter nail polishes ($9) from Morgan Taylor.

How To Care For Press On Gel Nails

How To Care For Press On Gel NailsBeauty Brite Disclosure

I love getting my nails done, but my pocketbook doesn’t like it, so I’ve been doing press on gel nails lately.  Some brands are better than others, and I want to share one of my favorites, Super DX. 

Why Press On Gel Nails?

Being able to get press on nails to stay on for more than a couple days, is a chore but if you have a good brand, then it is a lot easier.  Super DX offers bold, perfect nails in seconds and all you need to do is peel, stick, press and go.  Yes, it is that easy.  Having a set of nails on just makes me feel good about myself, I know odd, but it is one of the happy things I like to do for myself.  I’m unable to afford to get my nails done in a shop but tell you the truth I like doing my own press on gel nails.

How To Care For Press On Gel Nails

Prep Nails

  1. File The Nails. If you want your nails to stay longer than you will need them to fit on your nail without touching the cuticle. If the press-on nail is touching anything other than your nail plate, then they will start to lift.  When that happens then, the nail will pop off!
  2. Push Back Your Cuticles. Pushing back and removing your excess cuticle is always a good idea. Once you’ve pushed back all of your cuticles, wash your hands thoroughly to remove all trace of the product, trim any hangnails with cuticle nippers, and you’re good to go.
  3. Remove Natural Oils. Wipe down with a prep wipe (Super DX they have it in the package) which is pure isopropyl alcohol, but pure acetone will also work. Please don’t use nail polish remover which won’t work and will cause the nail to lift too.

How To Care For Press On Gel NailsAppling the Press On Gel Nails

  • Find the correct size for each finger
  • Peel off and press on the bottom first.  For 30 minutes I keep pushing each nail down.  This helps a lot!
  • Wait an hour before doing anything with your hand, great time to read or watch TV.
  • Avoid Water! Use gloves when washing dishes or using water.  Washing hands I use hand sanitizer when I have my press on nails on. Taking a shower well needs to be done, now you can wear gloves, but I don’t.

When I do these steps my press on gel nails will stay on for a good week!  I like that time frame because after a week I’m usually bored with the color anyways.  Remember Super DX has exceptionally cool, quality, and affordable press on gel nails for you!  Check out their Spring and Summer Collections; I’m wearing BLUSH in the picture below!

I also received one from the Diamond Collection of oval-shaped, premium textured Nadeco press on gel nails. They are a bold and iridescent blue-green shade. 24 press on nails in 10 unique sizes for a perfect fit for most. Medium nail length so this is perfect.
