Trail Rides and Rock Crawls

The weekend was great, I hung out with friends all weekend. Things were pretty chill on Saturday just out running errands and hanging out with a friend.

Sunday we decided to do a little trail ride and some rock crawling. If you’ve never heard of rock crawling it’s exactly what it sounds like using your truck to climb steep and jagged rocks.

This was the first time I’d been as my friend thought it would be a great introduction, I had the best time!

There were normal trails, cross trails, 80* point turn trails, and the rock walls were insane!

There were about 50 Jeeps that had shown up. There is a Jeep Facebook group where someone posts where they’ll be and whoever wants to show up can.

Everyone kind of took a survey of the land for Jeeps that were similar to them and their experience group to decide which group they be in. We pretty much had ours figured out as we’d talked to everyone before hand.

Everyone had a radio set to the same frequency so we all could communicate incase something happened or needed to happen. The trails are open to dirt bikes, four-wheelers, and side by sides as well. The really cool thing I thought was when we’d meet a group of other Jeeps they’d radio their convoy and whoever had a small pack had to pull over for the biggest pack. All of these trails are one way, which was a little scary for me. We were a big group so we didn’t have to pull over but it’s a little intimidating seeing the spaces full of rock and dirt you had to pull into, on the sides of huge hills.

Be prepared to hear a few squeaks, scrubs, and scratching. Nothing that’ll mess up the paint on our trail but the underbody took a few hard hits. I fact we broke a sway bar bolt and lost 2 light cover lenses along the way.

The 2 hour drive home with the doors off was a little trying since it had started to rain and we all got soaked but we were laughing and it helped wash the dust off a little. My face was numb by the time we got back because of my hair blowing on my face. My hair was so dusty when I took it out of the pony tail holder it didn’t even fall for it being so dry. Needless to say washing it that night was a curly tangled adventure.

Although I was feeling a little nauseous by the end because I hadn’t eaten we decided to go out to eat with my friends sister and her husband. I couldn’t eat then either so I felt like a weirdo but I had good reason but I still felt rude. I felt dehydrated which I’m sure is what made me feel so sick. We decided upon a popular Mexican restaurant which sucked because everyone’s food looked delicious! I couldn’t even drink my sangria, which made me even more sad.

If you get a chance to go trail riding or rock climbing I completely think you should. Be careful because things can get a little intense.

What did you do this weekend? 

Color Street Nail Strip Review: Glitterally Cannot

I’ve noticed these trendy little nail polish strips all over the place! I was skeptical but then I saw a couple of friends whose nails are gorgeous and colorful. They told me they were Color Street which are nail polish strips. 

That caught me off guard, I love getting my nails done but I give them a break every few months. I feel better about myself when my nails are done, like I have my life together.

A friend of mine named Brooke decided to have a Facebook Color Street party, while browsing I couldn’t believe how affordable and cute they were!

 

I found solids, glitters, nail art, and even pedicure nail strips. I settled upon Glitterally Cannot as they are in the petite section, my hands are kind of small.

Look how pretty they are! The pictures do not do the color justice, I absolutely love the color. The glitter is throughout the entire nail strip and what seals the deal is the strips aren’t rough or bumpy like you’d feel with glitter nail polish. 

The instructions are really simple too and they only take about 10-15 minutes from start to finish.

To get started use the nail prep wipe to clear your nails of any oils then get started! You’ll then start by picking the right size for the finger you’re working on.

Once you’ve got your strip measured up take off the protective layer, next you’ll want to tear the tab off your strip, apply the nail strip to your nail (you can stretch it a little to fit longer nails), I used the stick shown to help get the bubbles out if I saw any and to really get it into the creases of my nails. Finally you’ll want to get off the excess and you do that by using the fingernail file and swiping down until you can pull off the excess strip. I find swiping down helps to preserve the strip on the tips of the nail too. That’s just my personal opinion though.

Don’t place the nail strip over your cuticle or on skin.

I thought I did pretty good for my first time, applying the strips aren’t a pain in the ass either. Although in the picture it looks like my real nail is exposed but I think that’s just the lighting because they’re completely covered.

See how pretty they turned out? I can’t wait to see how long they last and for $13 you can’t really beat it!

You can layer colors, glitters, and nail arts too. If you have an awareness that is near to your heart there is also a section for those too.

I believe this method will be the one I use for a few months until I get my nails professionally done.

I’m a part time virtual assistant and I clean newly built construction houses part time too. So I touch papers everyday and I wipe off counters and fridges which makes my hands pretty dry which usually leads to my nails chipping or cracking.

listening to the great things I hear I’ll be enjoying the Color Street nails for at least 2 weeks!

if you’re interested in trying your own but don’t have a rep you can see my friend Brooke!  This post isn’t full of affiliate links, I’m not trying to sell anything just giving an honest review… but for real, go see Brooke!
