My friend’s wedding is tomorrow, so I ran out during my lunch break to get a manicure. While I was searching for a salon in downtown Pittsburgh, I started reading about these Shellac manicures that are supposed to last up to three weeks.
The last time I got a manicure it chipped after a day, so I figured it was worth a try. The shellac polish is cured by UV light after each layer, which is supposed to make last longer. It cost twice as much (usually I get regular polish for $15, this was $30). I’ll keep you guys updated! Does anyone get these on a regular basis?
After work I rushed to get to the dentist to have them check out a sore spot on my gum – I told them it felt like there was a piece of popcorn stuck behind my left molar. After waiting to be seen for 2 hours, the dentist checked it out and did remove a tiny piece of a popcorn kernal. What a waste of time!
I had a Groupon expiring soon for a spray tan, and figured it couldn’t hurt to get my color evened out a bit before my friend’s wedding. It was a strange experience – I didn’t listen to them about not showering for 18 hours because the spray was so stinky – we’ll see how long that lasts.
After all of these errands it was 8:30 and I was starving. I knew there wasn’t much to eat at home and I didn’t feel like cooking, so I broke the simple rule of never going to the grocery store hungry.
Case in point: I bought *two* bags of goldfish grahams. I’ve been in love with the chocolate ones for a while, but the vanilla cupcake ones are like changing. Like cake batter ice cream. I could have eaten the whole bag but held myself back.
I usually avoid frozen dinners, knowing they’re typically loaded with sodium and other preservatives and usually don’t keep me full for very long. One that I do love is Amy’s Teryiaki bowl, but they are almost $5 and Lean Cuisines were on sale 4/$10. I was in the mood for something flavorful but light, and this spicy shrimp dish did the trick for only 210 calories.
Any frozen meals that you love?
