About Me

I've decided to shift my about me section from my blogger info and welcome post to here.

About My Nails

Essie Mademoiselle Swatch
Nail polish is just a hobby of mine. Obviously, I'm a medic, not a nail tech. My blog shows my daily nails that may include nail are or just polish on its own. I almost always discuss my opinion of the polish, but please remember, it is just my opinion :)
Throughout my blog, I tend to whine about wide brushes like OPIs ProWide brush. I want to point out that I have a problem with these brushes and the like because I have skinny, tiny nails. I posted this in my post for Revlon Electric, but figured I'd add it here, too.
So you can understand what I mean by skinny, I have tiny fingers and hands. I know my nails look normal sized in the photos, but they're proportional to my hands. My ring size for my ring finger is a 4, and can sometimes be smaller. None of my fingers, including my middle and thumb, can even wear a size 6 without it slipping off. So if you have tiny hands, hopefully you can directly relate to my experiences with brushes, and my opinion of different brushes will help you.
If you have normal sized or larger fingers, you may find my comments about brush size to not apply to you. So when I say OPI brushes are obnoxiously large, you may love them. And if I say I like Essie's tiny, skinny brush, you may totally hate it because it takes 1,000 strokes for one coat. Just something to keep in mind :)

About Me

I'm excited about this part. I was going through my FaceBook to find a photo or two to use here, but then I decided to get creative!! You ready?

I Like Animals

In all seriousness, I've been a vegetarian for close to 15 years. I eat no meat products. Yes, this includes seafood, chicken, and gelatin. If it involves killing an animal, I don't eat it (hence the gelatin thing). BUT, I do eat eggs and dairy. I am NOT a crazy vegetarian and I will never, ever ask anyone to be a vegetarian. What works for me does not work for everyone else, and I'm well aware of that. With that, I have no problem with people ordering meat or eating meat in front of me. My boyfriend of 4 years eats meat. I will never give him crap about it or argue with him about it. Ever.

I'm a Paramedic

I totally love my job. That bag is a good 60-70 pounds. We no longer use that type of bag, but our new bags aren't that much lighter. But I make it work!!

And here, I'm the one right in the middle of the photo with the pony tail.
I went to medic school in 2008 and I have been a paramedic for going on 2 years and have been actively involved in EMS for 7 years. I love my job, but I'm also pursuing a nursing career. My ultimate goal is to work as a flight nurse/paramedic for our medical helicopter, LifeStar. I LOVE answering questions about my job, so if you have any, please ask!!

People Like to Pick Me Up

I'm super petite. Like REALLY petite. I'm 4'9". Hence my tiny fingers.

I Love Apple Picking

I LOVE the fall around here because it means apple picking. This is a type of orchard where the apples don't grow high up on trees, and I like these kinds of orchards... for obvious reasons.
Oh, and with that, I make bangin' apple pie!!


I HATE the Cold

That's me. The one who looks like she's FREEZING. Because I am. Stupid New England.

Most of All, I Love My Dog

That's us together, Paisley and me. We're snuggling in our Snuggies. She loves me. She's also been featured in my blog here and here.

So yup. That pretty much describes me. The girl behind the blog.
Hope you enjoyed reading this!! I loved sharing :)
