You know those new Sally Hansen Salon nail polish strips? I tried them out this weekend. They’re pretty neat and are supposed to last up to ten days. You place a strip on your nail, smooth it out, cut the excess and tada! Your nails are done! I wish it was that simple. I had a hard time centering the strip and an even harder time getting it to stick to my nail. By the 8th nail, I became a pro. So, I have 2 really good looking nails and 8 meh ones.
The problems I had with it, the design (blegh!) and being a noob at applying it, were all my fault. So, I’m going to try it again. I’m sure now that I know what I’m doing, they’ll turn out better.
Classes started yesterday. So far, so good. Minus the annoying know it all in one of my classes today. I thought I’d feel like a grandma, going back to school at 28. I thought most of my classmates would be fresh out of high school going into radiology, but nah. Most are doing a career change and are my age or older. I may start looking for a very part time job. Nannying or waiting tables seem to be my best bet since they’re flexible. I need flexibility with roller derby. So many events, practice, and eventually bouts to work around. And school.
I’m exploring my “new” neighborhood. I only lived in this area for about 10 months total in my life. And when I did live here I always ventured to midtown to do all of my shopping, entertainment, and eating. Not anymore! I realize there’s a lot more to the Bartlett/Raleigh area than I thought. Yesterday, after a walk at a park nearby, I stopped at Yolo Frozen Yogurt, (YoLo FroYo). Yolo is a local frozen yogurt and Italian gelato shop. It’s not your regular yogurt shop. You get to prepare your own yogurt! First you pick your yogurt. There’s a wall of about 10 different yogurt flavors. I got birthday cake and my sister chose tropical sorbet.
Then it’s my favorite part. Picking out toppings! They had a ton of toppings to choose from. Including fresh fruit and candy/cookies from local businesses.
I had a sweet tooth so I went for Reeses Pieces, some brownie pieces, and chopped peanuts to top it off. My sister stuck with fruity stuff. I have yet to try their gelato, but I’m sure I will. I don’t know if it’s a blessing or a curse that it’s less than a mile from my house. ^_^ If you live in Memphis or ever find yourself in Memphis, take a visit to one of the any Yolo Froyo locations.
