SensatioNAIL Vino

What goes great with wine? A manicure that lasts for up to two weeks of course! I purchased my SensationNAil gel manicure kit at Walgreens for $49. The kit says you can get about 10 manicures out of each starter kit but I feel like I’ve been able to get even more! Having gel nails 365 days a year may not be the healthiest for your fingers however it works great when you have a long trip to take or a busy yet important week of your life coming up. It’s pretty simple to do as long as your good at painting your own nails or have a willing buddy to help. The whole process takes about 20 mins and as soon as your finished you can touch EVERYTHING! Do you have any idea how many traditional manicures I’ve ruined immediately? I mean you just have to curl up under a blanket promptly after polishing or you just HAVE to open that bag of chips. Oh yeah! You absolutely have to drive somewhere as soon as that last stroke has lifted off your fingers. Life is rough enough my nails need to be fool proof. So I absolutely recommend you try it out! P.S. The wine makes it more enjoyable.

Workout for better posture

We finally have caught a break from the bitter cold and darkness. Despite my one hour lack of sleep, I feel better than ever. I can’t express how much the darkness and cold affects my motivation. I literally hibernate. And eat. A lot. Today I felt so much different!

The sun was shining, the air smelled wonderful, and I was able to treat the Oz Monster to a much-needed walk in the freshly cut grass. Ironically, last night not even knowing the weather would be this beautiful, I googled pilates classes. I wanted to stretch my body and work out my kinks, you know shake winter off a bit. That’s when I stumbled across Pilates + Yoga http://www.pilatesyogastudio.com I can’t tell you how many times I have driven past this place on McCausland, always promising myself I would take a class there.

I totally took advantage of the free class! It was awesome! Erin was my pilates¬†tower instructor. She made it easy to understand and really made sure my body position was correct, in order to get the most out of my session. I can’t express how much tension was lost during this class. Just when I thought my amazing experience was over I was “pursued” to get a chair massage¬†with Vernice.

AMAZING!! Vernice¬†is an intuitive therapist. She was right on when it came to relaxing my tense shoulders. Her massage¬†was better than any 1hour¬†massage¬†I could have received from my monthly massage membership which will remain anonymous *cough*cough* massageluxe. Sorry massageluxe I’m not really satisfied with your mediocre service when there are places¬†like Pilates + Yoga that express genuine customer service and industry knowledge. Thank you Vernice! You will see me again!

I can’t wait to go back again. I definitely¬†would like to try kettle bell and continue pilates. Before leaving I asked how long they have been open. I was shocked to find out they’ve been there for 8 years because they had the enthusiasm of a new business! Beautiful place!
