Right before my boyfriend left for Brunei we took a weekend vacation to St. Helena Island. We rented a house on AirBnB and were really excited! We got a great deal on the house for two nights and while it wasn't terribly far away it was far enough for a short weekend trip and neither of us had been out there before.
Well before we left I had this great idea to paint my nails and kind of give myself an at home manicure... I am a server and while I adore my nails and they are strong and healthy, serving is not kind to nails so I don't usually keep polish on or even really do much upkeep.
I sat down with my bag full of nail polish and I cut and filed down my nails and decided I was going to get fancy and try to do stripes on my nails.. no big deal right?? Wrong!
Then the tape came off... My mom and my sister thought it was hilarious! I was ver disappointed but not really surprised because I was using duct tape and that was my first mistake. My second mistake was doing it while I was lying in bed, not the best angle or surface to do my nails on.
All of that aside, I will be attempting to do some more cool nail designs again with better tools and a better work station! I am currently trying to cultivate my nails into perfect oval claws,, it was going swimmingly until the point broke off of a couple so now I've got a weird semi circle missing in a few nails. If only I could remember which box my nail file was packed in!
Our weekend trip went really well and it was nice to get out of Savannah if only a little bit. We attended the soft shell crab festival and Ryan ate his weight in soft shell crab and I learned how they farm the crab and got to admire some amazing artwork.
We also made a trip to the drive in theater! I hadn't been to a drive in since my mom and my sister and I used to go years ago. We watched the jungle book on the big screen, ate funnel cake and popcorn and then went back to our little rental house.
We had a wonderful experience with our AirBnB rental aside from some clutter in the house that was not in the pictures and an empty trailer home that was just chilling in the backyard? Also the toilets didn't flush toilet paper,, it was like being back in the Dominican Republic! But overall the house was clean and quite and even had an outdoor chandelier!
Here are some photos from the weekend! We of course didn't manage to get one of the two of us but that's okay I have plenty of memories!
What did you guys Try Out this week??
