I’ve developed a bit of a ritual that involves me, New York and nails. Valley Nails to be precise. Whenever I find myself in the Big Apple, I hot foot it down to this wonderful joint in the most beautiful hood ( the West Village) and partake in a little bit of Nail Art. The gals that work here, are just so incredibly talented, I make my pilgrimage so as to admire their amazing artistry skills. Then I gaze at the finished work on my own talons for weeks to come. It’s a beautiful thing. Oh yes, these ladies can create nail art with Gel polish ( which is the same thing as Shellac ) meaning that these beautiful masterpieces, that are often painstakingly painted on to each digit, will stay put for quite some time.

I’ve been in New York for the past couples of days, which was incredibly fun, but now I’m back to the warmth of Florida I can truly say it was gosh darn cold up there! I actually don’t think I’ve experienced cold like it before in my life. While I was there I happened to lose my phone, and after calling it a few times that night (the battery had died), I though it was ‘lost in New York’ never to be seen again. People say its a tough city right? Well, sometimes you just have to have a little faith in humanity.
A wonderful girl ‘The Angel of New York’ found my phone, charged it, then spent hours trying to find people who knew me on Instagram and Facebook to try and reach out to me, to tell me that she had found it. She returned my phone to me fully charged and in perfect condition! What a super star! I’m sure that she will never read this, but I just think that it’s worth saying… I’m eternally grateful. Not just for my phone being returned, which I guess could be seen as a materialistic thing to be upset about losing ( but c’mon who wouldn’t be upset – the hours of man power alone, that went in to downloading those apps!! ha ha!)
I’m grateful for the human kindness and compassion that exists in this world. People can be intrinsically good, and there are good souls everywhere. Thank you!
A couple of weekends ago I bit the bullet and I had a full on Anasatsia ‘Haul.’ If the eyebrow waxing (pre-payment) hadn’t made my eyes water, I’m pretty sure that they would have been following the bill I racked up. My eyebrows were happy, my wallet was not. Still, I’m pretty pleased with what I got, I’m not entirely sure all of it was necessary – as much as I believed it was at the time. PS. Sorry about my grubby paws marks all over this!
It’s that time, it’s that time! Every month I get a miniature beauty fix and it’s name my friends is Birchbox. I’m sure you’re all ‘beauty box’ veterans, but for those not so ehm, how shall I put this? Enthusiastic? *Obsessed* Beauty boxes are magical things, that arrive at your door once a month, laden with sample size goodies. I sometimes film a You Tube video to document the wonder of it all!
