Happy Monday to you! How was your week? Did you find little ways to take better care of yourself? Are you finding that you can take better care of those around you when you take a little time for yourself? I’m seeing that in my own life – for sure!
One of my goals over the last few weeks was to start taking better care of my nails. Now, please don’t get me wrong. They aren’t completely hideous. I don’t let them become daggers or gross. I never really learned how to care for my nails, and I just don’t put much thought into them. In fact, they are kind of sad and neglected on a regular basis. My nails grow so fast, and when they get to be this length, I trim them down a bit and call it a day.
I love the look of groomed nails. And I love polish on them – even if it’s a little shimmer with a clear coat. What I hate is putting in the time and work to make them pretty – only to have them chip the next day! Who has time for that?! I have begun to put my nails on my priority list. The last few weeks I have taken the time to add a little polish to my nails – and I found the holy grail. These Covergirl Outlast polishes have lasted 5-6 days on my fingers without chipping at all!
I’m still looking for ways that I can better care for my hands. What do you do to take care of your nails? Do you push back your cuticles? Ouch! Do you get manicures? Do you enjoy trying out new polish colors? If you have any tips for me, I would love to read them! For now, I’m going to enjoy admiring the pretty silver color in the sunshine!
I got in the green spirit of March by pairing one of my favorite jackets with an animal print top. Comfy and warm!
On Friday I wore my cozy grey tunic/sweater with one of my Russian shawls. I taught the kids in Quinn’s class at our homeschool group a little about Russia that day, so this incredibly soft souvenir got me into the spirit. I can’t believe that I don’t wear it more often!
To see my pictures and progress in real time, you can follow along on Facebook and Instagram! I’d also love to connect with you on Pinterest, where I recently started a Taking Care of Ourselves group board!
I have been saying that I would love to hear more about what you are doing to take better care of yourself. Reading your goals and hearing how you are taking a little time for you is so encouraging to me – and I really want us to encourage each other! That’s why I’ll be hosting a weekly link up party beginning with next week’s A Happier, Healthier You post! I would love it if we could share our goals, tips, and inspiration with each other. If you’d like to blog about your goals and progress this week, you can link up and share with us on Monday morning (the 17th). It would mean the world to me if you would consider joining me in this!
For my non-blogging friends, please continue to leave your comments on how you are taking better care of yourself this week! Maybe I’ll devote a section of each week’s post to your ideas so we can hear from you as well!
I can’t thank y’all enough for your support, encouragement, and how you continue to inspire me!
Let’s continue to take a little bit of time to mother ourselves this week. We can totally do it – and it’s way more fun if we do it together!
