Manicure Monday

I have had my nails done for half of my life(crazy isnt it) I can remember being 15 years old and my mom would pick me up from school and drive me 25 minutes to downtown to have my nails filled in😂

As I grew up I continued getting them done every 2-3 weeks

I have ruined my nail beds, nails are paper thin and will not grow and they just didnt look good

I tried to pain’t them, with no luck, all of the time was pretty much wasted when the nails would chip after only a day.

I considered going back to acrylics, I really didn’t want to, I searched for alternatives to acrylics and found gel polish at Sally’s beauty after many steps and using a UV light it was successful… only one problem, I want happy with the look of the thin layer of gel and my nails still broke/tore.

I went with naked nails for 2 years… no gel, no polish, no acrylics, I was ready for something when I found


I researched the company and decided to give them a try

I am on my second peppicure and I LOVE LOVE LOVE my nails

I get compliments on how good they look, and everyone asks me where I get them done😊

Best part is my nails grew after my first peppicure and the nails are all mine, no acrylic or tips needed for gorgeous nails💕

Peppigel is a woman ran entrepreneurship business which is another reason I love it so much

These DIY manicures are going to take the world by storm… watch out nail salons(with that being said peppicure can be time consuming so I can see ladies still opting for a nail salon experience) peppigel is a healthy alternative to acrylic and traditional gel polish.

Want a chemical free way to make your nails look fabulous, give peppigel a try (I am not affiliated nor get anything for this review/referral, I am just a fan wanting to share with you)

Redefine your leftovers

I really have never been a big fan of leftovers but the older I get I am also not a big fan of throwing away perfectly good food.

Friday night we went to a local Italian restaurant, we brought home 6 slices of pepperoni pizza.

I decided I was going to redefine this pizza into a fresh new meal.

I sliced fresh zucchini from the garden, I keep purple onions cut up(finely diced) in the fridge for salads.

Heated a nonstick skillet with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) placed the zucchini and onions and sauteed until tender. I added salt and pepper to taste as well as marinara sauce(I had in fridge) cook on medium until bubbly then add fresh grated parmesan on top(allow to melt)

While the zucchini was cooking, I placed the left over pizza slices in the toaster oven to get hot and crispy.

Once the pizza was good and hot I removed placed the slice on a paper plate, and placed a heaping spoonful of the zucchini on top of the pizza slice.

It was a brand new dish and no one even knew it was based around left overs. I would be more than comfortable serving this dish for company.

Cheesy pepperoni pizza slice straight from the oven(yes I used paper plates, if I were serving company I would use our dinner plates😁)

Look at that cheesy zucchini😋

No fancy plating technique used here again this was just for my family if I were serving company it would have been a little fancier😉

Next time you are thinking about tossing your leftovers… think again
