A little bit of this & a little bit of that

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday. Friday is just around the corner! To many that makes them happy because their work week is almost over but to me it makes me happy because it means I have to go work :) Although I like working from home editing images and everything else that comes along with wedding photography, I absolutely LOVE going out to photograph weddings. Sounds cheesy, but it really does complete me :) Can't wait for this weekend's wedding!

While we're at it, I thought I would share other things, that although they don't make me as happy as photography does, I am really liking right now.

Let's start with The Hunger Games.

I must have been living under a rock because I never heard about the trilogy until a few weeks ago. A lot of people were posting on facebook how they were going to go see the movie. I don't think I ever saw the trailer for the movie so I wasn't really interested in watching the movie. Until everyone was raving about it, that is. That's when I found out it was based on a book and decided I had to read the first book and see what all the hype was about. When there's a movie based on a book, I would much rather read the book first before watching the movie because I feel like the book fills in the gaps for you and makes the movie more interesting. Plus, one of these two things will happen: 1. You will hate the book and you'll know not to waste your money on the movie OR 2. you will love the book and it will make the movie that much more exciting. The latter was the end result after I read the book.

I didn't think I would like the book...just like I was 100% sure that Twilight was not the saga for me, but, of course, I ended up falling for both. Darn it, I should just give up and admit to myself that I am a 20 something year old that loves all books catered towards teens :P Nothing wrong with that, right? Just in case I will go and find the most mentally stimulating book I can find...but I can assure you it will sit on my nightstand until I am done with the other two books of the Hunger Games trilogy!

Another thing that has been making my little heart content? Nail polish. Yes, a simple thing like nail polish can totally change my mood. Is that odd? But seriously, if I am having a drabby day, I pull out a bright color, give myself a manicure, and it makes my day a little brighter. It's almost therapeutic to give myself a manicure after a long day. Since my obsession over nail polishes started I have only gotten a manicure professionally done a handful of times. I'd much rather do it myself. Plus, it saves me me some money! The only downside? As much as I love getting creative with nail polish and designs, I suck at it! But I don't care, I still try :P Art on the other hand is not a big fan of my nail polish addiction. For one, he hates the smell and swears up and down that it's toxic. Also, I think he is not too happy that my nail polish rack took over the top of his dresser :/ I'm slowly wearing him down, though :P

[Disclaimer: I don't think I'm good at it, at all. I am no pro at doing nail designs, manicures, or even applying nail polish. I am just a girl that loves doing her nails.]

Don't let there be a holiday because I will totally theme out my nails! Yes, I think I might need to go to a nail polisher anonymous meeting :P but I don"t want to!

All the photos above are of my left hand because the right one always comes out horrible...not that the left one is that great :P

So how about you guys? Are you into the Hunger Games? Or nail polish? Or both?

You're not alone Nat! I love nail polish too! Oh and don't say you're bad at it because I loved all the different looks.

I haven't seen hunger games but alot of friends went to go see it together anfd they said it was really good, I might have to give it a try too!

I'm not into Hunger Games (yet). I'm waiting for everyone to get over it so I can see the movie. I don't typically read the books and join the bandwagon later. Like we barely watched all the Harry Potter movies last year and LOVED them, but now that I've seen the movies I have zero interest in reading the books (even though all my fan friends tell me I HAVE TO lol)

My Sis got into reading the Twilights so I got sucked into the movies. I only really like Twilight and Breaking Dawn (I even read part of that book. A huge accomplishment for me! lol)

I love your nails and think you're so creative. I do mine on occasion but nothing super artsy. Also, I'm with Art. The polishes are toxic so make sure you're using and buying the ones that are Formaldehyde Free, Toulene Free and Dibutyl Something free (DBP for short). Nothing in life is completely safe but I just want you to make informed decisions so you have a long happy life. :)
