NAILS | Quo Beauty XTreme FX in "Happy Go Lucky" and Weekly Catch Up

Not much has been happening this week as I took off the first three days to take care of my kitty Hugo and his dental surgery. I wanted to be there to drive him to the vet and pick him up that day as well as be around the next day should anything happen. Thankfully, our furry boo survived with flying colours or as the vet put it "had a very boring surgery just the way I like it"! Hugo had one tooth removed due to something called tooth resorption where the body starts to break down the tooth from within. Apparently it's pretty common and anywhere from 20%-60% of cats aged 5 and older will experience it. Luckily he only had the one tooth removed as sometimes they discover more issues once the cat is under anesthesia. I do try my best to brush both of my cats teeth almost every day, but I'm usually only able to get the top teeth and not the bottom which is where Hugo's bad tooth was. He was pretty grateful to be home and a bit loopy for a few hours. Watching him bump into things and walk with his back legs all wonky was funny to my husband, but a little sad for me to watch! Hugo ended up just chilling in his carrier until he felt better enough to emerge around midnight where he started to beg for food and ATE which was great! He's now pretty much back to normal!

Purchased by me

I need more nail polish like I need a hole in the head, but as I was getting some replacement toothbrush heads, I saw this glorious teal and gold flakie polish on the rack and had to get it. It said $8.99 which I thought was a little expensive, but I loved the colour so much I threw caution to the wind and just went for it! Turns out, it was on sale for $2.99! It was meant to be! This was a little sheer on the first coat, but 2-3 thin coats worked out perfectly! Doesn't this just remind you the beach, mermaids and tropical islands?

Work has been fairly chill the last week or so and that can be both good and bad for me. I like to stay busy so when it's too quiet, I tend to miss the adrenaline surge of go go go! I've never been one of those retail people that can just stand there though. This is something that drives me up the wall! I have to be cleaning, putting out stock, reading about or playing with product or doing training on a tablet. I also don't believe in having your cell phone visible to clients, but unfortunately this seems to be a common thing in the luxury industry. We have tried to discourage this by telling people to be discreet or off the floor when on their phones, but this has led to people not being on the floor at all or my favourite, very angry employees who say that all of their sales happen through their phones and if we want them to stop selling then FINE! I've seen perfectly professional people use their phones for business, but still look like they are paying attention to clients when they walk in so I think it's definitely a learnable skill.

My busy week is next week so I may or may not do one of these weekly chats. It's Inventory which are two very long 12 hour days so I tend to be fairly brain dead by the end of the day! I hope everyone is having a good Thursday and enjoying their "Friday Eve"!
