My Worst Habits

... of which I have many.  Let's just highlight two of those, shall we?

1) I cuss like a sailor/trucker.  My dad was both.  He wasn't a sailor for long though. Backstory:  there was an incident that involved a drill sergeant, an empty box of cookies, and a locker.  He did receive an honorable discharge, but was decidedly "unable to adapt to a military life".  I'm proud of him and don't blame him, I would never have adapted either.  He drove a semi-truck for many years while I was growing up.  I always thought it was cool. But wow... truckers will say anything on a CB radio if they don't know kids are listening!

In all honesty though, I don't think I got the cussing from a sailor or a trucker.  I just caught it and it stuck. Damn it.

2) Nail biting.  I struggle with this daily.  I've always bitten my nails.  It has actually gotten better over the last few years, but I have to keep my nails painted at all times.  And pray that I'm not in stressful situations.  I finally decided to take the plunge into subscription boxes.  This month I joined Julep.
Boho Glam - November 2013 starter box
I took their little style quiz and was awarded the Boho Glam profile.  This profile gets two polishes and one beauty product each month.  I'm not much of a make-up wearer or beauty product person so I should probably switch to a different profile, but I'm going to give it a try for a couple of months and see how it goes.  Having a couple of new polishes each month will surely help me kick the nail biting habit.


  1. I haven't tried any subscription boxes. I'm not sure it's really for me. Especially something like Julep. I don't know what I'd do with all that nail polish! I really like it in theory, though.

    1. There are so many boxes out there now! I decided on this one for myself because of my nail biting issues. I believe the box for December will also have some eye shadow in it and I haven't a clue what I'm going to do with it. I rarely wear make-up of any kind. So I guess it has it's pros and cons.
