Sally Hansen Miracle Gel and ManiMatch Launch

Hey Dolls!

You may or may not know (prolly not…) but I’m a certified nail technician! I graduated from nail school last June (right after my 29th birthday!) and have been doing freelance nails since then.Β If you’re in NYC, I am available for a variety of nail services through my StyleSeat and through the Priv app (on Android and iPhones) πŸ˜€ /shamless plug

Last week (9/18-9/20) I had the privilege to work with world-famous Sally HansenΒ here in NYC for their new Mani Match app launch! (You can check out the Mani Match app here… only on iPhones right now…boo). I was one of 14 manicurists they hired to give manis away to celebrate their launch!Β I won’t lie to you… it was exhausting as fuck (I did about 100 express manicures last weekend and had to stand while I painted nails *sweatdrop*), but I met a lot of cool people and had the opportunity to work with a team of talented nail techs! πŸ˜€

Here are some of my favorite manis I painted and clients from the launch: Continue reading

Yarn, Work, V-Day, and Other Mundane Things…

Whew!

The obsession is ON!

Just spent a small fortune on yarn again this weekend…

I bought some from a seller on Etsy, and I am very excited to get it! It’ll take a while (’cause it’;s hand dyed and all), but…whew! can’t wait!

I also bought a t-shirt and some buttons from Ravelry….my other obsession now πŸ™‚

I STILL have to finish that last sock. I spend more time on Ravelyr thsn I do actually knitting ^__^

I am actually involved in an online community…whodathunkit??

Well, last few moments of freedom. the ‘rents are coming back from Costa Rica any moment now. Damn, but those five weeks flew by! I can;t wait to get all the goodies, though! Oh, Tapita, I can tatse you already!

Work; ugh. I work form home on the weekends answering emails from eBay; these people drive me insane asking the dumbest shit. I had an urge to mail them the letter I wrote a few days ago, but I resisted.

I am going to open a shop on Etsy and also on ArtFire. I am really excited about it. I plan to sell an odd assortment of stuff. I don’t think it’ll open til April, but yet and still… I reserved my spaces anyway πŸ˜‰

Today was Valentine’s and I damn near forgot. I didn’t feel like doing anything, to Alex’s disappointment. I had some shit to take care of here, and I honestly never got into this “holiday”, even when I was in a LTR.

When I was younger and single, it bothered the shit out of me. Kinda like my birthday; when I was younger, I made such a big deal out of it, and bugged the shit out of everyone about it. Now, I don’t mention it; if you remember, yay! if not, whatev.

I also completed an interview with Motionless in White for Origivation on Monday…can’t wait to see how that comes out πŸ™‚

Damn, I have over 100 posts on ravelry…addiction, I say. I need to get some actual knitting done.

And oh my fyucking goddess; it;’s like everyone I know is fucking preggo. My friends Maria, Aja, and Latoya, my bosses’ wife, two chicks at work…

Woof. I see a lot of baby clothes being knitted in the near future…

This is a schizo post; I am going all over the place, I know.

Alright, I have some laundry to put away, and that sock to finish, so I am off the computer for the rest of the night…besides my music, of course.

Shit, I gotta file taxes….

OK, OK——- EXCELSIOR!

Work=Awesomeness

I have the best job in the world.

I get paid $10/hr to sit on my ass and sell merch for a play at a theatre …..I spend more time sitting on my ass than actually selling stuff. I’m selling the book for a play called “Conversations in Tusculum”, which sells an average of four books a shift (a shift being four hours).

I get a lot of work done, though.

I did my Poli Sci HW, started knitting a hat, and even wrote in my blog (as I’m doing now).

Best job: both best paying and best work load.

Gotta love it πŸ™‚
