Have I ever shared that I’m kind of a freak about writing pens? I don’t know if anyone else has a strong preference for what kind of pen they prefer to write with but I definitely do. I love a good black, fine-tip (.3mm or .5mm preferred, .7mm is no good) ballpoint or Sharpie style pen. Gels are no go because usually I end up smearing them. I actually will just keep buying pens because usually I need them stashed places!

I’ve been trying to drink more water lately (I mean, who isn’t) and some days it is so easy to do, like I’m parched all day for water. Then other days, I’m all about the coffee. Okay, to be honest, I’m always all about the coffee. Anyway, I’ll do really well on drinking a good amount of water for a week and then it’s like I forget to drink any! :/

I got this idea for a gradient stripe from this instagram post (I can’t find the original artist though!). I thought, what a fun way to do a gradient! I was pleasantly surprised by how well the L.A. Colors Metal Nail Polish performed, tbh. I thought it would be fussy to work with and it wasn’t.

Moonflower Polish Lemonade and Pool Party, Tonic Polish Mirabilis and Here Comes the Sun double gradient rainbow manicure | Be Happy And Buy Polish

It’s the simple pleasures in life, right? Like seeing a beautiful rainbow after a storm. Now that we don’t live in the city proper, having an afternoon thunderstorm blow through is such a sight to behold. One of the best things about living in Montana is the big beautiful sky that allows you to see for miles and miles; seeing a thunderstorm from so far away and then coming through and then seeing a rainbow afterwards…sigh. It’s just so comforting to me.

Do you know what I would do if money wasn’t an issue in my life? Besides setting up a non-profit for dental work for those who fall through the cracks, I’d never wash my makeup brushes again. I’d just give away my brushes when they got dirty and buy new ones. Wasteful, yes. But my goodness do I hate to wash my brushes!

Have you ever had a moment of just pure, uncomplicated, contemplative joy? I was thinking about this when I wore this polish, because of the name. Times that I just have those kind of moments are when I’m running and the sun breaks over the mountains; or driving on a road trip and smelling sweet grass on the interstate; or having a song come on the radio that takes you back to a moment in time and you can’t help but sing along.
