Darwin. Evolution. Travel. Nails.

A Few Thoughts on Evolution, Adapting, Traveling, and Nails

My friend Jessica, who is also my lash girl and I’m her nail girl, is going on the trip of a lifetime this week to the Galapagos Islands. Not only is she going to the Galapagos, she is going with National Geographic.

If one ever gets the chance to go to the Galapagos, one should go with National Geographic. 🙂

I tried to talk her into the whole turtle/wildlife mani motif…but being the uber stylish hip girl that she is, she opted for a very deep dark purple shade of GelColor known as Honk If You Love OPI. It’s very similar to Lincoln Park After Dark but a little bit more purple. The GelColor and the regular lacquer both apply beautifully. Smart choice for this amazing trip. The last thing you want to worry about while your on vacation is if your nails are too busy or if they are going to match your bikini or your camera. 🙂

These hands and nails have seen and done it all! Did I mention Jess is also an Ironman????

I did a gold vine stamp on her ring finger symbolizing nature and life and evolution…or possibly just because it looked pretty and we liked it.

The only reason I even know where the Galapagos Islands are is because my husband is a wildlife fanatic and has mentioned several times that he would love to go there one day. There being off the coast of Ecuador, South America, Southern Hemisphere, World. Here’s a visual for ya…

I think most people fly into Ecuador to reach these rather remote islands...

Here’s a few bits of info from Wikipedia on the islands…

“The Galápagos Islands and their surrounding waters form an Ecuadorian province, a national park, and a biological marine reserve. The principal language on the islands is Spanish. The islands have a population of slightly over 25,000. The islands are famed for their vast number of endemic species and were studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. His observations and collections contributed to the inception of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection.”

Which brings me to my thoughts on evolution. Darwin proved/believed the species best adaptable is going to be the species to survive. This is deep. I think a lot of us humans want to keep things the same and don’t like change. We think if we become stronger or smarter we can resist change and evolution. Strength and wisdom are good, but maybe if we use our muscles and minds to ease the process of evolution, change won’t be so difficult to accept. Maybe?

What are your thoughts on Darwin’s Theory of Evolution? And traveling? And nails?

I hope you are having a wonderful week! I am so excited about spring break for my son next week. He needs a break from school badly…it’s been a rough few months for him. I just told my hubby on his lunch break we have to take Westin to the Galapagos some day…Westin is just like his dad and would be stricken by all the wildlife and exotic creatures. Anyway, I’m rambling…

Thank you so much for reading!!!
