Nails Painted in a Flash
I never leave time to do my nails. I usually have 10 minutes before I have to be out the door. I stopped by CVS and found Insta-Dri nail polish by Sally Hansen. 1 coat and nails are dry in 60 seconds? I didn't believe it. Boy, was I wrong. It works! The brush is a little bit wider than most-- so use with ease. You will have dry nails in 60 seconds! I picked up presto pink (80's pink), but there are a variety of colors. You can find it at CVS or Walgreens.
Win, Place or Show
I used to live in Kentucky and you can't live in Kentucky without knowing a little something about Thoroughbred racing. For the past few weeks- I've been glued to the TV to watch Jockeys a reality show on Animal Planet. No matter what anyone might say--Jockeys are athletes-- albeit pint-sized. They risk their lives while balancing their entire weight on a horse, racing at speeds of 40 mph. Amazing! For a look into the life of a jockey- tune in-- Friday nights at 9 p.m. (you can also watch previous episodes online)
Fresh From the Garden
Fresh produce during winter? YES! Check out Locally Grown Gardens on East 54th St. Whether it's finding fresh veggies, (red and yellow beets- you can roast at home) fruit (apples, oranges, and grapefruit), or baked goods (breads and pies made by the owner/chef), Locally Grown Gardens is an escape-- an oasis!-- a year-round farmer's market. You can also pick up a lunch or dinner. A few weekends ago I picked up a homemade pulled pork barbeque open-faced sandwich (a top a slice of homemade white bread)-- succulent pork and a tangy and delicious sauce. Don't miss out-- Locally Grown Gardens, E. 54 st., Indianapolis.
March Bar Special- Glass Chimney
**note: The Glass Chimney closed**
The Glass Chimney bar is one of my favorite bars. Why? It's small and quiet with lots of dark wood that makes me think I'm in a ski lodge. What else? Bartender extraordinaire, Denny. He remembers you and your drink, recommends wine, suggests travel destinations and mixes the perfect drink, whether it's a martini, margarita or my favorite dessert drink: a grasshopper. Best of all- wonderful food. Each month a different dinner special. March: fish and chips-- fried Basa fish with homemade fries, coleslaw and a glass of house wine or beer. All for $14.00. What a deal! Glass Chimney, Carmel.
