"Yeah, I think you could split them into three different parts. Then, you can write like an intro post with a small blurb about them all with links to each piece. That way it's kind of still like one piece but sectioned up.  One small tip…"

Samantha Rae Lopez commented on Jessica Salinas's blog post How To Break Bad Habits - Mine Were/Are Nail Biting & Emotional Eating
"Yes!  Having pretty nails stopped me from biting mine too!  There's something very zen about painting my own nails, so I never get them done so I can keep doing it. Sometimes I get too busy or too stressed out to even think about my…"

"Definitely agree! New lifestyle brings much more than weight loss, that's just a good side effect. Good tip, though! I'm going to try to post more about healthy lifestyle in general. It definitely is not bad being curvy :) I embrace it!"

How To Break Bad Habits - Mine Were/Are Nail Biting & Emotional Eating

Bad habits - we all have them.

I didn’t want some long fake nails but just not have nails bit down to the quick. I started rewarding myself with manicures and I found that when they looked all nice and pretty I didn’t bite them as much. Now I use …See More
