MMM: Meekay's Manicure Monday!

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Here in Colorado it was a scorcher! Admittedly, Saturday was WAY better than Sunday, and even better than today! Me and the man stayed home amongst air conditioned comfort.

It doesn't help that a good portion of Colorado is on fire. This morning smelled like I slept near a campfire, and woke me up with a start because I thought a field close by was on fire. All in all, not a beautiful, nor a nice day in Colorado today.

At least the butterflies were floating on a bed of bubbles...
Icky bubbles.

I have my manicure that I currently sporting to share with you, however I discovered that I needed a new top coat since my Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat that I bought when I first started doing my own manicures seems to bubble super bad when it dries, I have tried everything to not get it to bubble too! So much so, that it took me 4 hours to do my nails, waiting super long in between layers. I don't know about most people who do at home manicures, but that seems like an excessive amount of time... even when applying a normal dry top coat.

It's a Girl! \0/

For this week's manicure, I used Opi's It's A Girl in two layers, and then placed a fimo purple butterfly on my ring fingernails. :D I really enjoy these accents, and they are super easy as long as you cut them thin enough. I had my boyfriend cut them for me since he has a super steady hand and is good at cutting things.

Freshly painted nails, with purple butterfly accent.
You can order the fimo accent canes on Amazon, and I would suggest obtaining an Xacto knife to cut with. I will put up a tutorial on how to apply fimo nail accents soon!

I ordered some Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat from Amazon, which came today. This top coat is all the rage amongst friends and the nail bloggers I follow. I will put a review up later after my second manicure, to give everyone the full idea of why everyone loves it so much!

Back story:
I have been a nail biter all my life, until recently. I had acrylic nails for almost two years, and since acrylic nails are so hard to bite off, so I seem to have broke my habit that way.  Until now, I never really cared about painting my nails, so this is a new experience for me. So far, I love having my natural nails, and wouldn't think of biting them, besides, they are REALLY THICK!!

I hope you have enjoyed the first installment of MMM, look for more in the future, with better pictures!! :D

This post is my own, as are my opinions.

Wallpaper Wednesday

Hey everyone! I am back from camping, alive and didn't see any bears. I want to share a quick post Androinerdy post to show you my new phone setup. I finally got my replacement phone where I like it.

I am using Go Launcher Ex on my Samsung Epic 4G Touch with the Ice Cream Sandwich theme pack applied.
The wallpaper is Pawakit's Pixel from this month's premium chance item, Rainbot. And the clock is One More Clock - Zehro's Conky Clock stylized in blue (specifically #ff00bdff).

The wallpaper is Derlaine's Dee Saturate from the premium CI, Rainbot, as well!

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Now of to watch some Fairy Tail and eat some pizza! Manicure later! ;)

Happy Mouesday!

I have always loved fortune cookie fortunes. This one I received last week.
It's always hard going back to work from a three day weekend, my body says Monday, my mind says, "No, no, no it's Tuesday." My genius boyfriend dubbed today Mouesday. A weird conglomerate of Monday and Tuesday mashed into one. I like it and am rolling with it.

I started a new thing this Mouesday. "Complete 4 tasks" before blogging.  I am hoping that this small chunk of tasks every day will help me feel motivated. And writing about it will be even more fun!

My four tasks today were:
- Awesome sock thank you
I got these awesome Nerd socks from someone on Reddit Gifts. However, I was stupid late posting a picture of them, but at least that is done. I can't wait to wear them on my camping trip next Thursday!

- Sign up for next Reddit Gift
Arbitrary day 2012 here we come! \0/ Sign up at Reddit Gift to participate!

- Re-enroll in FAFSA. (YAY! School!)
Pretty self explanatory and less painful than last year.

- Blog plan (It's always good to have a plan, ne?)
I am on the blog planning right now, I really hope everyone enjoys what I have in store!

Tomorrow is going to be yet another busy day at work, and even more busy when I get home! I have a two hour block of Big Android BBQ planning which will take up most of my "Complete 4 tasks" challenge for the night, which means I will have to complete my four tasks on the commute to and from work.

The four tasks for tomorrow are:
- Prepare for blog posts.
- Sign up for Fall classes
- Read S.L. Farrell's A Magic of Twilight (Book one of the Nessantico Cycle)
- Go through past starred articles on Google Reader and figure out which ones are worth saving

First post... again.

My nails. Hopefully will have time to do another manicure this week!
Hello everyone, welcome to my corner of the web.

I never know what to write in the first post, except for what I want to write in future post. >.<

I am a conglomerate of different things, an artist, an avid music listener, a mom, a student, a great wealth of Android knowledge. I feel the need to share most of these things on here, well except for the Android part, there are too many Android blogs out there anyways. However, I do like to post my screenshots, and I may post them here. :)

I am a mother of a 9 year old daughter, who is the light of my life. I am a single mother, her father made poor decisions in his life that now prevents him from seeing his daughter. As such I refrain from posting images of her on the internet. Such is life.

I am an honor student at a Community College here in Denver, obtaining that degree for Computer Science. Admittedly, the math part is hard, especially Trigonometry, but I never really grasped GEOmetry so I was doomed from the start. I did manage (by the graces of any God you choose) to pass Trig and move on to Calculus. I grasped those concepts, derivatives and such, but once you threw in Trig (which was on a BUNCH of tests,) I felt lost and overwhelmed. Which made me reconsider my major, I am thinking art. Yeah... drawing for a living sounds much better...

I draw anime extremely well, err... should I say the heads. Creepy I know, but I still need to work on those bodies! I really hope that with practice from a class, where I am being graded on how well I draw the human figure, will surely help.

Music. I appreciate all forms of music, however that does not mean I like it. Nor does that mean that someone else has to love my favorite form of music, Dubstep.  I love the wobbly rhythms and the way the bass makes me feel, I love the sound of transformers breakdancing, machine parts moving, or podracers zipping by at mind-boggling speeds.

I am a tomboy. However, I have a secret. I am wanting to burst out into super epic feminineness (LOL It's a word now!!) that would make even my own mother cry tears of joy. I want to try to do my hair and keep up on my nails and wear skirts and try makeup. You know, the girly things a girl is supposed to enjoy. :P

Welp, that is me, not bad for a first post I must say. :) I hope to keep up with this one and to never have to do a first post again! :D
