Day 31 – I Miss You
On Instagram, I’ve been seeing this tag go around for a few months now. Just this past week, Lindsay from LindsayDoesNails posted that she was going to do it, so I thought I would do it too. I thought this was a good way to turn things around, slowly. Lindsay mentioned the same thing – basically if you see one good thing a day, it can’t be all bad right?
I started this on May 1st, I’ll started posting them in groups of 5, and now am posting them in groups of 10.
Day 31 – (above)
Day 32 – 😀
I’ve literally never had anybody compliment me so highly. As some background, SayAnythingBr00ke was one of my absolute favorite polish lovers on YouTube. Instead of continuing YouTube, and cashing in from it, she chose to get a real-world job, become an adult and forge her own comfortable path. I miss her. She was the best. She’s still active on Twitter and Tumblr though, in case you’re interested. But anyways, for somebody to tell me that they like me because it’s in any relation to Brooke? The best thing I could have ever gotten out of YouTube.
Day 33 – Maillll Timmmmeeeee
Polish hoarders (or I guess all compulsive shoppers) know that happy warm feeling when packages arrive. The little pieces of beauty lying inside those boxes are little bottles of magic. This was one of my boxes from Ji, the creator of Rescue Beauty Lounge. I get collections from her to review and film and every single time, they get better and better.
Day 34 – Maleficent
Much like when I saw Million Dollar Arm, I saw Maleficent and was the only person in the theatre. It was awesome. And Maleficent was fun.
Day 35 – Run
I used to work with a guy named Kyle, and all he would wear were Nikes. He had like 120 pairs. He hoarded shoes like I hoarded nail polish. And then he’d browse for more and more shoes and go crazy when new ones were released. And I totally knew how he felt, because I’ve been that person when nail polish collections launch.
He totally turned me on to browsing for Nikes and one day, I found a pair that I fell in love with. I don’t hoard shoes. But I see the appeal.
Day 36 – Look Up!
It’s so easy to forget how good you have it sometimes.
I love my house in late spring and early summer. We have a lot of greenery around our house so everything just looks so alive. I have a lot of photographs of all of that.
The one thing that’s the most difficult to photograph, at least for me, is how trees actually look. How light looks through leaves. And the texture of branches against the sky.
This photo was actually a total accident – I had my phone camera facing the other way and basically accidentally took a photo. It was a happy accident though 🙂
Day 37 – Minty Minty Minty
Mint was one of my favorites this summer. It’s so happy and pops and looks good on everybody. I think I had mint on my toes for like 6 or 7 weeks.
Day 38 – Progress
I had a photo in one of my #100HappyDays that was of the itty, bitty baby tomatoes and this is how big one of them got, in a matter of 10 or so days.
Again, it was fun to watch them grow. It felt productive 😀
Day 39 – Minty Part Deux
I hurt my toe. I got a minty bandaid to match my minty toes. It’s the little things.
Day 40 – Summer
In one of the malls near my house, they’ve planted hundreds of lavender plants along the outside of their parking lot. Every Summer, all the plants bloom, and the air is filled with lavender and honey bees. It’s honestly the most annoying parking lot to go to, but for sure the prettiest.
