DIY manicure and pedicure

wow!  i haven't posted since Friday! a lot of things have been going on!  first of all i got engaged on Saturday!!  i was so surprised!   i had no idea that he was going to propose!  do you want to hear the story??  i know you do!  well...he woke me up on Saturday morning to go on a hike.  i don't really like to  hike and i was mad that he was going to make me.  so we were hiking and i was in a really bad mood...sad huh??  so i walked over to a log and sat down and told him that i wasn't going to hike anymore.  so he came and sat by me and we talked and by now i was getting into a better mood.  right as we were going to leave he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!  i started crying as soon as he asked me!  i love him so much and i am very excited to be married!  we are planning for the wedding to be next summer so i have lots of time to plan!

as for more exciting news!  today was my very first job interview...ever!  i was really nervous and i am positive that my face was bright red as it always is when im talking to people.  i don't know what it is!  im fine talking, but my face gets super red!  it was an interview for Plato's closet and before the interview they had me fill out a packet with a bunch of questions about fashion and name brands...i think i bombed it!  i thought i knew a lot about fashion, but now im not so sure! haha.  overall i think the interview went really well!  i am nervous to hear back from them! i hope i got the job!!

these are the polishes i used.  i used a clear polish and an Art Deco white brush.  if you haven't used these you're missing out! they are so easy to use and i found mine at the dollar store!  all you do is follow the edge of your nail with the white polish.  if you can draw a straight line you can definitely do this!  after the white has dried add your clear coat and your done!  i love this nail style!  it only took me about 10 minutes to do both my fingers and toes!  i am a DIY kind of girl, so i would rather do this at home by myself and save but loads of money than go to a place and get them done.  first it takes less time, second it costs close to nothing (compared to the $20+ you usually spend getting your nails done), third they are easy to repair...i always hate it when girls have missing nails or if they haven't got them filled in a long time!  it just bugs me!
