Karen Huff Klein- Bus Monitor

I don't know how many of you have heard (or not heard) about Karen Huff Klein, the bus monitor that was bullied by some junior high students. If you have, you will find that what these little monsters did was vile and malicious. I work in a school setting and I know that if we had seen this behavior, these students would have been dealt with immediately. I cannot stand bullying one bit. I was never bullied when I was young, but I can imagine the pain some people have to deal with when they are bullied by others. I have seen so many kids at work being bullied that it brings a knot to my stomach. I cannot believe how some people can be so inhumane or so insensitive. How can you threaten someone just because you don't like them? Bullying has reached a whole greater level and I just hope that exposure to it brings it to a stop soon.

Just Writing...

I feel so bad that I haven't kept up with my blog. I've been trying to do so many things all at once that I haven't had any real me time lately. I was sick all of last week with tonsillitis and a nasty case of wisdom teeth growth. I got a fever and was THIS close to having an ear infection. It was the worst! I'm all better now so I will do my best to update more often! Til laters (yes, I picked that up from Fifty Shades of Grey lol)!

Have You ever...?

Have you ever felt so low that you had no idea how you were going to make it? That's me right now! I want and need a job that will cover my family's bills. My dad hasn't worked in over 6 years and my younger brother hasn't found a job. I only have one job and I can't find anything else that is higher-paying because they all seek experience. I am getting more and more devastated as the year goes. I need money and a job soon! I hate that I can't help as much as I should.

Jesse's Girl

I just wanted to write this blog post to talk about Jesse's Girl Nail Polish. For being a drugstore product, it works like a charm! I recently wrote about a nail gradient I did using two colors from their line and I'M STILL WEARING THEM on my nails! This is an OMG moment for me! I don't have that much time to do my nails, but I try doing them at least every Thursday. By Saturday, my nails are usually chipping like crazy. Not this time though! I did my nails exactly how I've done other nail gradients except that I used two colors from Jesse's Girl near the tips. I have had very minimal tip wear, but nothing too big. I don't even want to unpolish them because I want to see how long they'll last! I definitely will recommend this product because I fell in love!

Looking at the picture above, you can see that my middle finger is the one with the most wear of all! Take into consideration I wash dishes without gloves and I scrubbed my bath tub without gloves either hahaha!

About This Blog

As you can probably tell, my head is all over the place. I have so many varied interests and that's why my blog is not consistent on one thing only. Right off the bat I can tell you what thing you should expect to read about and they are:

  • Music
  • Nail Polish
  • Football (predominantly anything involving Raiders)
  • Basketball (predominantly anything involving Lakers)
  • Baking & Cooking
  • Technology
  • Books
That's just a simple list of things I might talk about. I might have other random posts, but this list includes the basics lol

NBA: Lakers

It's offseason in the NBA and during offseason, lots of rumors begin to circulate. The biggest one going around in Laker Land is Pau Gasol getting traded and maybe even Bynum. I'm pretty sure Gasol will get traded, but I'm not too sure about Bynum. Yes, Bynum is getting a little too cocky, acts a bit immature and he didn't show up 100% during playoffs, but there is no denying that this man is a BEAST! Kobe was immature in his younger days as well and now look at him! He is a living legend! Regardless of the rumors though, we won't know what will happen until contracts are sign and finalized. Hopefully we do get Deron Williams though and maybe bring back Fisher? I would love if he retired wearing Purple and Gold. Ahhhhh! The anticipation is killing me! Until later! :)

Blue-Green Nail Gradient

So, at the moment I am in love with nail gradients. I decided to do a green nail gradient since I rarely use my green polishes lol. I used OPI Nail Envy as my base coat and then added China Glaze Snow. Then I sponged some China Glaze For Audrey very near my cuticle area, I wanted the white to show. Once dry, I added Jesse's Girl Mermaid's Lagoon. On the tip area, I used Jesse's Girl Glee. I added Seche Vite top coat to seal my mani and to make it look super glossy. I know it's not the best nail gradient out there, but I'm just barely getting into gradients. For being my second try with gradients, I am very satisfied lol. My cuticles are a mess as well because I have yet to master cleaning my cuticle area without getting rid of half of my polish lol
