Let’s talk about summer toes for a little bit. I have this odd personal pet peeve that doesn’t allow me to wear sandals if my toes aren’t painted. I even have a hard time going to yoga without painted toes, but I managed to get over that since it’s hard to stay motivated to upkeep them in the winter. Normally, by this time of the year, my toes would already be nicely pedicured. But, the cold San Francisco summer hasn’t given me the opportunity to wear sandals.
Fat Tuesday. The day before Ash Wednesday. Which really means the day to over-indulge before giving up something for 40 whole days and nights. Which is exactly why people are partying hard for Mardi Gras right now. Want to know how I am celebrating? I am painting my nails. Mardi Gras nail art has consumed my evening. Yes, I have turned lame in my old age of 26. But believe-you-me I’ve had a whole lifetime of fun on Fat Tuesday in one trip. I went to the party of all parties in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil: Carnaval.
