A New Direction for 2011...


2010 has been an okay year...nothing amazing has happened other than moving house. But I really do want to change things in 2011. 

I definitely want to improve my diet and health and hopefully I won't be as sickly and will have more energy!

But I actually want to start something new - I want to train as a Nail Technician. 


Since starting my blog 10 months ago I've really loved being more creative and looking after my nails - to the point of painting them daily and constantly looking at other nail websites/blogs. 

I can't say I'm interested in false nails or even gel infils and all that...but I'm hoping it will be more interesting than I think it is. 
But I really would love to be qualified and had some experience under my belt by the end of 2011! 

The aim being maybe working for a company like Wah Nails or Nails Inc instead of just a little beauty salon that does a whole range of treatments. 


I just feel with a company like Wah or Nails Inc I would be inspired daily and it would definitely be something to get up for in the morning. 

I do realize and I'm not seeing these are my personal thoughts, but being a nail technician is seen as a 'simple' type of job...which I don't love the thought of people thinking that about me but I really do want to push myself and be more creative than applying false nails and painting them neon pink daily! 
I'm not saying I want to be as amazing as Sophy Robson but I would love to have a job as creative. 


Ofcourse I need to go on a night course...probably a City & Guilds one and I think maybe creating a portfolio would be a good idea (I'm not sure if this is the done thing though). 

...and basically work hard! 


I feel really great at the idea of a career change into something more creative and fun!

Would love to hear if your changing anything in the new year!

  2. Wow, this is amazing! It's so good you're doing something you love! I finally bit the bullet and applied for uni too, hopefully that means in 2011 i'll be leaving boring office jobs and going to study as a Mental Health Nurse! Finally doing something i'd want to wake up for every morning!

    I really hope you gain the experience you need and get the job in Wah or Nails Inc. i'm looking forward to seeing your journey recorded on here! :)

    Happy New Year!

  7. good luck on your plans! i think that if you have a passion, then GO FOR IT! at the end of the day, you'd be much happier if you were doing something you loved even if people think it's a "simple" job. who cares what others think?

    as for this year, well... i still want to be a performer, that's plan a. but i'm really thinking of going to school for makeup and start freelancing on the side. performing is not a stable job so it would be good to have something else to do on those quieter months.

    happy new year to you, fee! :)

  19. I did a nail course and I really enjoy doing gel nails. I don't think it's too difficult (theory)I never went and worked in a nail salon but I do have experience as a hairdresser and I think being good with people is key as well as being passionate. I think the more you get into it the more you will love it and there is nothing better than loving your job. I hope you enjoy learning nails x

  24. Go for it! I think it is too easy to get bogged down in "real" life and never realise our dreams. I posted the photos of my cousins wedding yesterday and spent the evening fielding calls from relatives in Ireland crying and saying how over whelmed they were by the pics and I cant tell you how made up I am. It has made me determined to actually make the effort to get more photography work in 2011 - I would love to do more weddings but the stress of getting it all right, with only one chance scares the cr*p out of me!!

  25. Go for it! Why not contact Wah nails or similar and ask for advice about training? They may be able to recommend the best courses and career path if that's your end goal.

  32. Megaplex Keto Blend Taking into account the aforementioned points, it is unfortunate to note that there are actually some weight loss programs that in an attempt to show prompt results incorporate the use of diuretics to give the illusion of weight loss. Diuretics, both drugs and diuretic herbs, promote body water loss through the kidneys. Apart from these diet programs leading to body water loss which easily shows up on the bathroom, the dieter risks getting dehydrated.

  37. Vital Nutrition Keto Control This is one of the most common weight loss myths out there. It is illogical to think that your health and weight are going to be in balance if your nutrition consists mainly of twinkies, chips, and donuts. Sure you can burn it off by exercising, but most people whose diet consists of mainly junk food are probably not disciplined enough to stick to a workout routine. I do know a few people who, from the outside, look like they are in good shape, because they are not "fat, but who have high cholesterol.

  43. New You Keto Actually, the natural course of weight loss is to experience a quick loss of weight resulting from the loss of water from body tissues which is then subsequently followed by a significant slowdown in fat loss as the body now switches to burning its fat stores to meet it energy needs. After the initial rapid bodyweight reduction phase of a weight loss program, the rate of further healthy fat loss should be somewhere around 1-2 pounds per week, or slightly more depending on the individual's make-up.

It is easy to come across suggestions (regarding hair care) but equally difficult to actually get results. So, it is important to understand what really works for your hair and what does not. It is important to educate yourself about hair care and not act on each and every suggestion that you come across- indiscriminately. Provided below are a few tips with the help of which you can expect to maintain long and strong hair.

  72. Thin Zone Keto What the diet industry doesn't want you to know is that most diet pills, weight loss supplements, and diet programs don't work very well and can even hurt your health more than being fat. If you're interested in being truly healthy, your best option for weight loss is to look at your activity level and the nutritional content of your diet. Work on making fresh vegetables at least half of your diet and take up moderate exercise at about a half hour per day. That's what the U.S. government recommends for optimum health.
