Here’s my 7 random facts:

  1. I played field hockey and basketball in high school.  Field hockey I can live without, but sometimes I miss playing basketball all the time.
  2. I’m seriously thinking about getting one of those fitness gadgets that you wear 24hrs.  Like maybe FitBit, Nike Fuelband or the Jawbone UP.  Did you know some of them monitor your sleep and have an alarm that won’t wake you up til you reach the correct sleep cycle?  I need all the help I can get when it comes to waking up in the AM!
  3. I have become addicted to seltzer lately.  Water, tea and seltzer are my faves.
  4. I have the weirdest dreams and remember most of them in the morning.
  5. My favorite nail polish brand is Orly.  But they recently changed the design of their bottle and cap?  This is upsetting to me.
  6. If I ever have a son he will probably be very tall and blond and I wanna name him THOR… but I bet my friends and family won’t let me 😦
  7. My name is Jacqueline but the shortened version is JACQUI.  Everyone spells it like the more common version: JACKIE.  My name is misspelled so often I don’t even notice it anymore!

Here’s some random pics of my nails… a lil spam is always nice!

Orly Gumdrop… a nice cream turquoise.  I used this as the base for my AriZona Green Tea Nails

OPI Elephantastic Pink… a beautiful vibrant pink.  I used this color for my crazy underside mani

  1. Aww lovely post, Jacqui! Congratulations on the Award, you’ve made CraftyNail an awesome blog and you fully deserve credit!
    Waking up is never a pleasant experience lol http://sleepyti.me/ is supposed to help you plan the right time to fall asleep so you wake up fresh and energised. Haven’t tried it yet, but going to give a go tonight!

      • Yes, you have Certified Luxxe Appeal! 🙂

        I knew a little bit about it, but the site makes it easier to work it all out. Hope it works so that I can wake up singing like Snow White

  2. You are too sweet; thank you! I went to high school with not one, but two Thor’s. I say go for it. If nothing else, do it as a middle name.
    Also, have you tried one of those “gradual-light” alarm clocks? They work remarkably well, for me at least. Feels almost like waking up ‘naturally’.

    • Good to know that people out there actually have that name and I’m not the first one to choose it.
      No, I haven’t heard of those clocks! I heard of some that are mats that you lay on the floor and it won’t turn off til you get up and place your feet on it lolol

  3. I tried one of those sleep cycle things before, but I ended up getting annoyed because I would never exactly know what time I’d wake up in the morning, so I just went back to a regular alarm. Also, I would totally back you up on Thor! 😀

Jacqui loves comments! Feel free to leave one...
