Weigh In Monday and Nail Polish

Monday, March 30, 2015

I know! Two totally unrelated things going on the blog today, but when I saw that Andrea and Erika were doing Favorite Nail Polish today, I couldn't pass it up. I mean, if you know me at all, you know I love a great nail polish! I love having pretty nails, it makes me feel more put together, I can't explain it, but it is definitely something I try to keep up with. I am not good at accessorizing so I think this is my way of having a little added "sparkle!"

But before we talk polish, I know you are all patiently waiting to hear about my Saturday weigh in, and I am excited to tell you about it! Here are the stats for this week....

I was very happy with this result! Can you believe over 12 pounds in only 3 weeks!

I only ate out for one meal this week and it was on Sunday night. We had a date night with friends and I went over my points, but it was far away from weigh in! Over the week, I went over by a few points occasionally, but nothing big and made to sure to stay within my points on Friday, the day before weigh in. I also had 22 extra points left at the end of the week. So, I stuck to all my goals for this week and it paid off! If you want to hear about last week, you can read that here.

What is my plan for the coming week? Just continue what I am doing! We went out to lunch with the kids on Saturday, but don't have dinner or lunch plans for the rest of the week. If anything, I think we will be eating pretty bland this week as a stomach bug seems to be making its way around our house.

Menu Plan

Now let's get to the Nail Polish! 

I will admit that I had a Jamberry party recently and since then, I have only painted my nails once. I am loving my Jamberry nails. Here is my current manicure with Jamberry nail wraps! Love it! 

I will still be using my favorite color polishes though, because I love the look of plain color as well! The last time I did my nails, I used the wraps as accent nails and painted the rest with my new Jamberry polish. Wow does the polish dry quick and the color is to die for! Perfect spring color! 

Can you tell I always do my manicures while watching TV! 

Jamberry - Sweet Sangria

My favorite fall and winter color this year was my Sally Hansen, slick slate. This color just looked great every time! Love that it is neutral and perfect for the cold season!

Excuse my pale dry hands in this photo!

My favorite all around color this year has been this Ruffian Red. I got this in my Birchbox and fell in love immediately. I right away ordered the full size and was a little disappointed to see that the small bottle I got in my box was actually a full size, but I don't regret the purchase because I love it that much! It dries fast and seems to last longer than some of my other polishes! I will be putting this color on my toes when I start wearing open toed shoes again which will hopefully be soon! 

Below is a picture of all of the polishes I talked about above and a few of my other summer favorites! As you can see, I am not partial to any specific brand, if I like the color, I grab it! 

OK, I think that about covers everything I wanted to get in today! Fingers crossed that our family is done with this stomach virus and that we stay healthy! 

Have a Great Monday! 

Linking up for Meal Planning Monday with the Laura,  Jill and Laura

    1. Isn't breakfast for dinner the best! My kids love it! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. You have such beautiful colors!! I love that Sally Hansen slate color!
    And do you think her "Miracle Gel" line is worth it?

    1. Thanks! Honestly, they were always sold out of the top coat when I went to buy it (it was super popular at first) so the few times I used it, it was without the "gel" topcoat, so I can't really say. But I do plan to buy it before I start wearing that color again, so I will keep you posted!


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
