We are all complaining in Vancouver about how we don't have a summer yet (I wore a merino wool sweater into work yesterday!), I am trying to enjoy our sub 20 degree weather as I love being able to still sleep at night with the covers on! However, I am enjoying being able to go "full Summer" with all of these summer nail polish collections!

Hi hi! Finally, a relatively new mask to share with all of you on what is a VERY rainy 10 degree June Sunday in Vancouver with all of you! From what I see, most of Canada is having an actual summer while we are still wearing raincoats and sweaters some days! Today seems like a good blogging day so that's the plan and then because I have a very early morning training tomorrow, I will be doing my best to take an early night so that I will be able to survive the 10 hour work day!

Morgan Taylor Up in the Air Collection

I recently received the new summer Morgan Taylor collection "Up in the Air" and I loved everything about it so expect to see many manicures over the next three months with this collection! I know this manicure is a bit late for the week, but wow has it been hard to sit down and focus this last week! I come home and I just cannot envision myself sitting and typing and my time off has been filled with running errands and cleaning out my closet even though I SO WANT to sit down and blog about all of these new beauty things that have entered my life! I have some time off coming up at the end of the month so I am hoping to make a small dent in things then!

Alright, I have not been good about posting Sheet Mask Sunday on Sundays recently, but I have just felt so busy with house things and enjoying my time off that sitting down in one place and writing has been a struggle. It also suddenly became summer last week shooting up 10 degrees into the low 20s so all anyone in Vancouver has wanted to do is get outside to enjoy the sunshine! Myself included! My husband and I went for a one hour week around the neighbourhood this afternoon and it was so nice. I have been continuing with sheet masking almost every day the last few weeks so I think I am slowly getting back into a bit of a routine.

Again, I had my nails painted for Monday, but just couldn't quite get to editing my photos and doing the blog post. I crammed too much into my Sunday and even today, I had off, but ended trying to fit in a lot. I booked myself a counselling session at 10am, then went to the post office followed by grocery shopping. I then started prepping for my performance review and then started doing some odds and ends around the house which has now taken us to 5pm. Where does the day go? Also, HOW IS IT JUNE?!

Sigh, it's Sunday and I am taking my morning at an incredibly slow pace as I write this post as I am so very exhausted from my work week. There was a lot going on and I am peopled out, but at least there was no ridiculous workplace drama to contend with!
