Got My Nails Done

Hello Divas!

Now you ladies know that I write about MY beauty and fashion as opposed to EVERYONE ELSE'S version because I am NOT a girly girl. I tend to not like purses and shoes and makeup and all that sort of thing as I am generally interested in less feminine things. I recently wrote a post about artificial nails asking what we thought about the lengths that some women tend to wear those nails.

Well two days ago I got my own nails done with some acrylics and I must say I am really liking the effect right now. The last time I had my nails done was in 2004 so that was SIX years ago. I have very ugly shaped nails in my opinion and they peel and do not grow long at all. I wanted to see if wearing some longer tips would make me feel more feminine and I had been contemplating getting this done since December. I finally took a deep breath and went to the mall and had it done.

The process cost $23 and I left a $4 tip so my total came to $27 for my new nails. I asked to get them short so that I would not feel too uncomfortable and not be able to carry out my daily tasks.

On the day that I got the nails I felt very awkward and my fingers hurt because I have sensitive skin. I immediately regretted getting the nails done because I was not sure if I would be able to work at all.

I woke up the next day and the pain was gone and I was able to get about my day, getting ready, typing and eating. It does take a little adjustment but I love the look and it was worth the money I paid.

Super Long Nails: Sexy Or Scary?

I have been seeing some REALLY long nails on women lately. At first it was only on the fingers but they are now getting these talons attached to toes as well.

What do you think of the super long nail trend?

Is it sexy or is it scary?

My Skin Care Routine: Morning Shower

Hello Divas!!

One of the most important parts of being a diva is having great skin. The easiest way to get it is to really take care of your skin by cleansing it and eating a healthy diet.

I am going to share part of my skin care routine with you just so you can see how easy it is.

Morning Shower
I take two showers a day, or one shower and a bath at night. My morning shower is shorter than my night shower as the only thing I have done (most times) is sleep.

In the morning I am usually in a rush to get out the door and since I slept through the night so I do not have a lot of sweat or toxins to clean off.

I use a bath pouf and some body wash to quickly wash my body off and probably spend about 5 minutes in the shower. I figure I only need a quick shower to get me started since I took a good shower before going to bed the night before.

I then pat myself dry and apply a deeply moisturizing lotion like Vaseline Sheer Infusion
or Olay Quench. I will also use my Olay facial lotion with SPF15 to moisturize and protect my face.

I apply my antiperspirant/deodorant and that takes care of my skin for the day.

What is your morning shower like?
