Catch Up!

Hey y'all! It seems like I'm always playing catch up with this blog, and that's such a shame. But I was having technical difficulties. I think that has all been cleared up, so I'm going to try to get back to posting. I have wanted to jump on here so many times! I miss y'all! And there actually are some polishes I've tried recently that I felt were worthy of mentioning. One of those is a magnetic polish from Sally Hansen! As always, I'm late to the game. Magnetic polish is probably not as exciting as it once was. But, I'm not usually one to try out every new nail trend. Actually, the only reason I picked this one up is because I had an Ulta coupon, and nothing better to buy. But I'm sold! And I want to try other magnetic polishes. I'd love it if y'all would leave some brand names in the comments of ones I need to try! If I can buy them, I will try to feature them here. But for now take a look at Red-y Response!

 I'm not exactly sure why they thought this was red??? I think it's more purple-ish. But isn't it kinda awesome?! I really like it! It was so fun to see the way the magnet left that pattern. It literally only takes a few seconds of holding the magnet directly above your nail. It was super quick, which makes this a really easy manicure for anyone on-the-go. This required two coats. The first coat has to dry completely before applying your second coat (which does not take long at all!). As soon as you've painted your second coat, hold the magnet directly over your nail for about ten seconds. This works best if you do each nail individually. I love this. It turned out way cooler than I thought it would. What do y'all think? Has anyone used this brand? Fill me in!

Ok, so I want to kind of go into what I've been up to. I feel bad for not including y'all in my little life. And I actually have a lot of really neat stuff going on in my life. Plus just a few pretty photos that I thought were worth sharing. So if you want to read on, feel free! Here we go!
 I took this picture back at the end of May. I was having serious issues with the fact that I was going to take summer courses. I was just so sad that I would miss sunsets like this. I was imaging myself in a sea of homework and endless essays. Whatever! That never happened. Summer classes are a breeeeeeze! I didn't miss stuff like this, but how pretty is that?! I love living out here.
 This was around the same time. I love living in the South! ;)
 And this is a view off of a rooftop downtown. It was gorgeous! I would love to live in one of those houses right near the river.
And one of the highlights of my summer was picking blackberries in Arkansas! And let me tell y'all, these are a million times better than store-bought. We made a cobbler out of these and it was perfect. I want to pick blackberries every summer from now on. :)

So this summer I've been to Missouri and Arkansas. That really doesn't sound that awesome. But to me, it's been perfect. I've really enjoyed my summer and I'm looking forward to the rest of it. I really want to share my most recent news! I'm transferring from community college to the University of Memphis this fall! I have been accepted and I have decided that I want to teach! I went into college with an undecided major. I really wasn't up to make a decision at the time. I change my mind about everything, everyday. How could I pick a major and be satisfied with it? And most importantly STICK with it?! But this is something that I can see myself doing. I'm going to get my bachelor's degree from Memphis and I will be qualified to teach K-6. But I would really like to get my master's from the University of Arkansas. So that's my long term goal! After I figured all of this out and sat down with a counselor I felt so good! It was a sense of something permanent, and a sense of accomplishment. I have felt so good over the past couple of days, and I have been sharing this information like crazy. So now when people ask my major, I don't have to say "Uhh, I don't know yet." And that in itself is a great thing. Ah I'm so excited! Y'all just don't even know!

That's what's been going on. I'm sure I'll have more to share soon. Most importantly though, I want to hear from y'all! I hope everyone has been great! I'm sorry I haven't caught up with other blogs, but I'm getting back into the swing of everything. Thanks for reading! :)

That is definitely one of the prettiest colors of magnetic polish I have seen! I'll be honest- I haven't tried any magnetic polishes yet! I haven't even stopped to look at any of the displays. But after seeing this I feel like I should at least have one in my collection! I love your sunset pictures. And you're sooo right, there is nothing better than living in the South :) That is so exciting to have finally decided on what you want to do! I think you'd make a great teacher. Good luck!!
