I know we live, eat, sleep, and breath nails........
But I know there is some part of your day/week/life that you do OTHER things.
What do you do for fun outside of nails?
Do you have any other hobbies or talents?
Any sports or activities you enjoy?
Or do you just catch up on TV?
I love to crochet (my friends tease me cause I'm only 24!), I used to be a bookworm until I had kids....lol. And I do enjoy a fair amount of TV (YAY! Big Brother!)
My husband and I are trying to do more traveling (mostly road trips).
So what do you enjoy that isn't nail related?

Although I haven't officially started with nails yet (doing the Creative foundation course in November - Yay!!!)
My hobby is Irish dancing - although I'm getting a bit old for this now, but at least it keeps me fit!!

My hobby involves sitting on my sofa, remote control in one hand, big glass of Cava in the other! it's quite a stressful hobby which takes great will power and strength of mind and takes many years to be the best at but I currently hold the world trophy for it! :D J xx

Well i have to say by the time i've done housework, brekkie, lunch, dinner, kept my 3yr old amused for most of the day, then i go on the puter, (this site) emails, Nail sites.Then i'm doing my nailart, especially my 3D stuff which i am so into.

The rest of my time is spent with my lovely hubby doing stuff as a family.

Howdy all, well apart from the usual work, cook, take the dog for a really long walk,clean,sleep, shopping- im a cd-a-holic! wishing i was filthy rich and very famous and oh yeah the other half it really is nails!! 1 of my closest friends is a rock chick/ gothic lady and when she isnt working( she is an ambulance 999 operator) she lets me lose on her nails, we try and come up with a theme so next time its all black acrylic, silver studs, lace, that type of thing. My other operator is a pink lady- the brighter the better so i have to try and come up with someting out of the norm for her. so thats it, pretty boring everyday stuff really.

Big hugs and luv to all

When I'm not busy with the salon, I enjoy spending my time with my husband and baby girl. Sunday is the day we spend together going to church and visiting with family. I enjoy watching movies as well.

Well, i also love cooking, clubbing and scuba diving, i haven't done any dives recently but i hope next month i can get away for the weekend and do some serious dives! And i also love to play Spider on the computer (the hard one too), it's not so hard after you get the hang of it, i also start by choosing the game i'm going to play by pressing F2 alot! I only play once i have 3 moves available in the same suit :)

I am all about the drinking...haha! I also spend time with my animals...1 dog, a very needy Newfoundland, and 8 kitties. No I'm not crazy, 3 kitties (all adopted) and 5 kittens. One kitty came already pregnant.
I also love to check out what everyone else is doing in the nail world. I think I have checked out about 75% of the sites linked to replies on this site.
I also spend alot of time cooking! I am a food junkie! My weight was so out of control though that I tried Weight Watchers and lost 70 lbs!!! Great program! Now I am a WW recipe junkie! I get to eat 6 times a day! Greatest program in the world for food addicts! Unlike Atkins...I can still drink! Whew Hoo!! P.S. I never went to a meeting! You can do this from home!
Anyway...that's what I do after work.

I too am obsessed with Weight Watchers. I've just lost my first stone. I'm really proud of myself cos I am such a lazy cow and have no will power but i'm a little dissapointed as a stone sounds like a lot but I can't see much of a difference (hubby says he can but I think he's just being polite lol)

I also don't go to a class as there isn't one where I live but I do the diet on the internet so between that one and this one i'm pretty busy!
