Five on Friday

1. Jamberry Nails

I have probably bought about 10 sheets of Jamberry Nails... & I've never used any of them.  Why?  Because I'm scared.  Yes, I'm the person scared of nail art.  I had used a similar product by Avon & actually loved them.... when they were on... but getting them off was sticky. Literally.  & they seemed to pull the top layer of my already-thin nails off.  It took a while for my nails to heal up.  So I'm scared to try these now.  I need to look up some YouTube videos to see tricks on getting them off safely.
Anyone use them?  Any scary stories to share?... even better, does anyone have great success with them?

2. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

I have to finish this book this weekend. I am loving it.  It is written around old pictures that the author found.  Pictures from the past are so freaking WEIRD!

I love that he put such an odd story with the pictures... I am loving this book so far & I'm over half way done.  I just saw there is another book that follows it - I'll have to get that one too.  These sequels and book series suck me in every time.

3. Joan Rivers

I talked about her last Friday... & I'm so sad to hear she passed away.  I heard on the radio this morning some of her past comedy & I just think she was a woman who paved the way for other women comedians.    They said she would be the first person to make fun of her death & I guarantee she totally would.
Fashion Police will never be the same.
I said it before - but if you haven't seen the documentary on her life, watch it.  You really will have a new respect for her.

I always thought my mother in law reminded me of Joan Rivers.  The 'pre-plastic surgery' Joan Rivers.  They have a similar 'look' ... do you see it?

4. One Year Ago

I can't believe tomorrow will be one year we lost our Yellow Dog ... We still miss Buffy so much.  And now we're facing the loss of our Sydney Girl... this being a dog-parent is tough sometimes...

5. Big Brother

Anyone else watching this season?  I loved it at the beginning with Donny. It seemed like it was going to be a good season, but I've just grown not to care anymore.  Basically because these people don't have a brain... at least one of their own.  They just do everything that Derrick says. If he doesn't win, it'll be ridiculous. He's the only one really playing.  Even last night, during the double eviction, there was a chance to make a big move.  But nope... all predictable... YAWN.  I actually like Derrick but this has just made for boring TV.

As much as I am NOT a Victoria fan, I'd crack up if she ended up winning when she's won nothing all season long.

What's the best book you've read lately?
Do you use Jamberry nails?
Are you a Big Brother fan, or just tired of the "Derrick show" as well?
Happy Friday everyone!!!

  1. Jamberry nails scare me for the same reason! My nails don't do well with gel manicures and I imagine them being similar. Buffy is such a beautiful dog, thinking of you today. The world definitely won't be the same without Joan and her ridiculous one liners! Can't believe she's really gone.

  2. My daughter tried the jamberry nails and it worked well and came off really easy without damaging her nails.

  3. No on nails.
    Book, Calling Me Home.
    Yes I watch Big Brother, I like it still but it's driving me nuts nobody wants to make the big move....

    Have a great weekend!


  4. I was sad to hear about Joan River passing away. I was a fan. I can't get enough of Big Brother. Yes I know that Derrick rules all but he is very good at this game. I watch After Dark each night too! I just wish they would make some big moves too. I just said that to someone yesterday, just watch Victoria win the next competition. I don't know how she got picked, she is so boring. I know who is HOH right now because of AD.

  5. I've not tried Jamberry yet, but I've been seeing them around! Aw I'll be thinking of you tomorrow :(

  6. I ordered Jamberry nails over the summer and was so excited to try them but it didn't ever happen and now the print I have is way too summery to use. I have REALLY short nail beds and my nails are short most of the time so when I tried one on a nail it was too difficult to file down the edge completely and it just wasn't working for me. I have friends who love them though, so I would definitely give them a try! I've never heard of them damaging your nails.

  7. I haven't used the Jamberry nails yet. My girlfriend is a consultant, and I've been on the fence about buying them. You should use one of your sheets and then post a review with pics!

    I just finished Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. It was pretty good! Now I'm reading The One by Kiera Cass, which is the 3rd book in a series. It's a YA book, but still entertaining!

  8. I am sorry about Buffy. Our dog, Jamie, just died in July. It really hurts. They are certainly family members and not just pets.
