Frosty French
My lack of words over the last few months also meant that I didn't always write down what polishes I used for some manicures. If there's a manicure that shows up in the next few weeks that you just have to know what polish is used, let me know, and I can pr...

Mocha Marble
This manicure was done with a watercolor technique, but my co-worker L named it Mocha Marble, and since it does look kind of like marbled stone, I stuck with it. :) I think I started with a white base, but the polishes used for the colors are Joe Fresh Moch...

Water Marbling in Color Combo 54
If anybody besides my co-workers notices such things, I apologize for the lack of posting for the last few months. I've still been doing my nails once or twice a week, and taking pictures, but the social spoons required to add words to these posts have been...

Polka Bows
Man, it's been a whole month since I posted... again ! As usual, I've still been doing my nails and taking pictures, but I just haven't seemed to have the time or words to write these blog posts. This mani is a Monkey-See, Monkey-Do based on Radi D.'s gorge...

I only own a few Zoya polishes - most of my polish buying tends to be brands I can get for under $4 (I just bought some Barielle on awesome sale which totalled to buy-one-get-one-free with free shipping!! Wish I'd had more free cash at the time!) but of the ones I own I love Logan and Veruschka. But then I'm a green- and brown-polish whore, really. :P I want Want WANT Flynn, Louise, and Hunter out of this collection sooo badly! ^_^

Why is it that when I add new blogs to follow via Google Friends Connect, I have to go to blogspot dashboard first, and then click "Read in Google Reader" before Reader will update with the added blogs? It's not like it's a great hardship to do it, but I do wonder why...

I don't normally cross-post my entries from FB to Google+ to LJ or vice-versa, but I felt strongly about this post and felt I needed to post it everywhere I'm listed.


There are a couple of things I take from the article I've linked. First, that thank the gods not everywhere has joined the cult of thinness that we have here. And second? ALL women are raised with body issues today. Skinny, fat, completely healthy at whatever size...every woman seems to grow up thinking there's something wrong with their body. facepalm

A once-girlfriend of mine has a fabulous blog called "Dances With Fat" that address this issue. She's won three national dance championships...and she weighs 284 pounds, according to the blog's main page. (http://danceswithfat.wordpress.com/) She's a strong advocate for "Health at Every Size" and contends quite eloquently that "fat" doesn't mean "unhealthy".

I just wish people would stop judging other people by their bodies. Skin color, weight, height...it's all so stupid. You look at this model and assume she starves herself. People have asked me what I did to lose 50 pounds, like it was somehow a great feat. (I much prefer the people who are referring to my smiles and more outgoing attitude when they say I'm looking great these days. People who look down at my waist when they say it? Not impressed, and not complimented. The number of healthy women in our office who turn down a cookie or slice of cheesecake because they "need" to lose weight is disgusting...)

How did I lose weight? I got healthy. Depression = weighing between 180-200 pounds for me. Getting on the right psych meds? 150-160, which is what healthy equals on my body. I didn't set out to lose weight - I set out to get my stamina and breath back. I succeeded, so I'm happy. I don't care what I look like. My goal wasn't weight loss, it was health gain. (I can't give you an exact weight unless it's the day after a doctor's appointment, because I don't own a scale!)
