Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On A Bad Bet

By Fall Out Boy. I have been on such a FOB kick lately. I have always liked their music, but have stepped it up alot lately. To listen to this track, click play on my music player to the left and enjoy!! I have probably listened to this song 100 times within 3 days. Seriously.

Ok.. So! Last Friday was pay day, a pay day I was dreading because I had been super sick.. I had asked for $350 from my vacation pay balance so that I would have a pay cheque and be able to pay my bills and live quietly til the next PD. Well, my boss is amazing and found out I had some stored sick days (I didn't even know this!) plus I had picked up a few hours here and there.. Anyways! I walked away with a VERY nice pay cheque. What do I do when I have extra funds? I shop.

What did I want though? Well.. I wanted new jeans, so I bought a new pair of jeans that I LOVE! Plus two black long sleeve shirts, fairly plain for the most part.. but that is so that my new scarves take center stage! I have always loved …

Heartbreak Hotel

Byyy Mr. Elvis Presley. Ohh.. And if you want to hear the song, click to play on the side.. I decided that for now I will keep it off of autoplay.. (I had a incident the other day.. I usually have my volume up high from gaming or listening to tunes.. ANYWAYS.. I went to some random site and my ear drums were blasted with some random screamo/metal song *not that I am complaining..* but I would hate for someone to come on here with their volumes cranked and get an ear full!)

After 5:30am.. Everyone else is fast asleep.. and I cannot get there.. grrr! Ahh well, why not make a quickie post then eh?

I forgot to snap a quick photo of what I used, but it was CG Liquid Leather with CG OMG applied with a trusty bobby pin..








I assure you all they do look better in real life!! They were actually a coverup because I made a fail-attempt at using lace. I will give it another go some day though!!

Oh.. Remember this oaf? The good ol' Rick James has been with us since Wednesday evening. I decided …

Psycho Killer *Pic Heavyish*

By The Talking Heads. This is a band that my dad loves, and I didn't mind it when he listened to their albums, but this song is hands down my fave! There are just songs that I enjoy for certain elements. The element that I like in this song? They sing a bit in FRENCH! Maybe that is why I love 'Bad Romance' so much.. I digress.

Before I show you what I am currently sporting on my fingernails, I must show you all a gift I (ok, my sister and I) received. Two of our co-workers just got back from Hawaii, and they picked up this set for us..




Pretty eh? They are called 'Island Girl: Hawaii' and they are lovely! Sadly the green polish appears to be the only one with a label (it is called 'Aloha Girl') - I might have to check out the website listed on the side to see if I can find some more colour names! I love the names listed on polish - sometimes that is half the fun!! I will try to maybe get some swatching done on the fake nails I still have lying around the pla…

The Grace

Byyyy Neverending White Lights featuring Dallas Green.. Even though the song seems saddish, it actually makes me feel a whole lot better when I listen to it - enjoy!

SO! I finally made it back to work this weekend! Yay! To celebrate, on Friday night, I did my nails.. And I was really excited about them because I knew they would make it through the weekend.. WRONG! I thought I was going to setting tables and such this weekend, but I was actually on dishes. Ugh. Wasted.. This was after day uno in the dishpit.. Sorry they look terrible, I should have photographed them the night before.







I watched the tutorial posted by the very talented julieg713 - click her name to check it out!

Anyways.. That is it for now.. I am going to go tidy up the house and bake some goodies. Finally get to have our 'Gossip Girl' night again!

Have a magnificent Monday!!

My Secret Santa

Hello everyone!!

I am pretty shocked that I am actually able to concentrate long enough already to snap a photo and to try and make this post! I hope it makes sense, fingers crossed!

So, I have been pretty sick lately, not like coughy-sneezy-etc (ok, a little bit!), but I have had an extreme headache since last Thursday evening. My mom and I finally called this 'Hospital Hotline' because we were all getting a bit worried. According to the nurse, I probably have H1N1, but if I came into the hospital, I would be sitting for hours, and if it wasn't exactly what I had, then I would either have it, or if I did have it, I'd be passing it around. AWESOME (not really).

I have been told to self-isolate.. So, other than being around my family, who has already been exposed, I am not welcome around other people. I have missed four days of work. My head hurts, my eyes cry on their own, my body feels like it got hit by a semi, etc. Blah. Although, for a 'flu', I don't m…

Bad Romance

By Lady Gaga. I LOVE her music, so of course I love this song. Oh, and enjoy it playing.. My one of changes is to CHANGE the music to whatever the title of my post is. If it is super annoying or whatever, just let me know :D

Just a super quick post to post up my other Halloween look and the look I am currently sporting. I sadly had to miss work today. I spent approximately 15 hours with the migraine from hell! My head is still pounding, but at least I can stand light and SOME sounds now.. But I can feel is thinking about rebounding! GRR!




This is the first look.. I know.. Pretty late for Halloween stuffs, I apologize! I nabbed this idea from Naive Nails (I will fix the link when it allows me to view her blog!!).. I absolutely love it! I promise it looked better before.. This was after 3 days of dishwashing, so it did hold up amazingly well!!




I got this idea from an image I came across on another site. I will have to edit it and upload it so everyone can see it! She did such an amazing jo…

Quick Update!!

So! I finally have a few days off (YAYYYYY!!!), which is great because I do have a *few* things to work on.

I promised some changes on here. Which I was working on.. But sadly the layout I made for myself isn't quite working.. YET! I haven't done coding since about 2005.. So time to start reading up on things again!

Also.. I used to have muzak playing on here, but removed it. I have decided I am going to add it back, but only to stream my latest entries song title song.. Just for kicks! I probably won't put them on if there is a lot of coarse language though.. Unless I find edited versions.

There was something else I was going to change, but now I cannot remember.

I will hopefully paint up my nails again tomorrow.. err.. later today.. And then post that along with my other Halloween nails that I just nail polish removed a hours ago.

But now I need a bit of snooze action. And by that I mean go and read this demon (in a good way) of a book. Goodnight!!

Monster Mash

By Bobby 'Boris' Pickett. I have to admit, I didn't just randomly get this song. I picked it.. haha! Anytime I think of Halloween, I usually think of this tune as well. If you have never heard it before, youtube it! You're in for a fun treat!!

So.. Halloween-ish title.. Halloween nails oui? Oui!

I seriously had so much fun doing this one! Sadly, it only lasted two days while I worked in the dishpit, but oh well! My nails are naked right now.. I am fighting myself mentally to NOT paint my nails!! GUH!! There is no point in painting them until Tuesday night.. But even then I am back to doing dishes on Friday.. We'll see. I do not think I can hold out til Friday night!!

I am also really excited that a new month is just around the corner. I have plans for this lil blog here! Time for a change in layout n such. I have some other fun little things I want to add.. So yeah! Be on the lookout for that. (Of course I would pick the beginning of November to deb…

Happy Birthday Lucy!!

I saw a couple other ladies post up about your birthday and was just going to comment on their posts, but why not make my own?

I absolutely love coming on to my blog to read comments that you leave. You are a super nice and amazing lady - your comments are friendly and have a caring tone! Never change the way you are :D

Thank you for reading what I write AND for leaving me such great comments! You're a gem..

So, anything good for your birthday? Whether it be gifts or just a good day - let me know!!

Crying Over You

By Platinum Blonde.. Ahh.. Good ol 80s tunes!!

Sorry x 85 that I have disappeared again!! Things got pretty crazy around Thanksgiving.. My favourite uncle was here.. I had to work a bunch.. Spend time with him and family.. THEN! I was scheduled to go to some appointments in another city that is about 2 and a half hours from here (it is called Regina).. My mother was supposed to come with me.. But was called in for her knee surgery on a cancellation.. Which was great, she needs this surgery, but it threw me into some crazy zombie mood.. Luckily the uncle was still here so he was able to take me to Regina because he was going that way anyways.. Phew!

I got home on Friday, which means I should have posted up a look or two.. BUT.. I spent Friday in the mediclinic with my brother.. Thursday night he took a puck to the foot while playing.. Once they were on their break between periods, he took off his skate to check out the damage and there was no way that skate was going back on. His foot wa…

Eyes On Fire

By Blue Foundation. Now, I have mentioned my love of soundtracks before. I might have mentioned my love of books and most likely my love of movies. This song actually is a tri-relationship with all of these things. Yes.. I am a guilty 'Twi-Hard'.. and this happens to be off of the Twilight movie soundtrack. AND! It is my favourite song from the soundtrack. Sigh. OK! Back to reality!!

I decided I better snap a quick photo and post this up before I go to bed because I traded to work in the dishpit tomorrow.. So that means these bad boys will be destroyed.

This is a look that I do quite often. Actually.. After my sister and I started doing designs on our nails this was my go to look when I couldn't think of anything else to do.





I used Quirius Wicked and Orly Glitz for this look.. Uusually I do it with some brighter colour then half white and black polka dots.. But.. We are into fall now, so why not toss in some autumn-esque colours oui?

Also.. Thank you all for wishing me a good…

Quirius Swatches (Pic Heavy)

I am really not one for swatching polishes, but it was asked for, so I will do it! I am super sorry to have to show some really sloppy polish applying.. Please look past that fact - PLEASE! Anyways, on to the photos..

All of the pictures are clickable to be enlarged..




3 coats; a bit streaky and dried rubbery - a white base might be beneficial here!



2 coats.



2 coats; rubbery and vnl BUT a super easy removal.



2 coats; a chocolatey purple - love it!



3 coats; rubbery and you could see all the brush strokes..



2 coats; 1 more coat would have gotten rid of the brush strokes.



3 coats; could use more as at 3 coats it felt like only 1 - super quick drying time!



3 coats; LOVE THIS COLOUR!!!


Now I am actually going to have to find some time either tonight or tomorrow to actually paint my nails. Plus I had mentioned Christmas came early.. Well, it really has! My favourite uncle is arriving here for at least a week tomorrow! WOO!

Yule Shoot Your Eye Out

By Fall Out Boy. A Christmas themed song because today was like a Christmas morning to me..

My long awaited package from Quirius arrived today!! I was suuuuper pumped to get it.. Not just for myself, but that package contains 12 polishes.. 6 for me and 6 for someone else (I cannot say for whom though, just in case!)

First, I have to talk about their packaging.. It is done up really nicely!! They are safely tucked into these little boxes that are wrapped in some serious bubble wrap encaved by packing peanuts. I fell in love with this company just at that point.

Then I finally got to the part where I was allowed to open the boxes.. Now, it says each box contains 6 polishes, yet I had 3 boxes (I will answer the mysterious box question in a bit (does anyone else chuckle at the word box? oh my immaturity strikes again!)). I checked on box two to make sure it was correct for someone, it was.. Opened my box (heh) and this is what I found..



Jamaican Dream, Lucy Diamond, Purple Pas…

Body Language

BY QUEEN!!! WOO! I have been on such a Queen kick lately.. (Probably because 'Glee' (which is an amazing show) reminded me of my love and lack of their tunes). I just love this song. And for some reason my nails remind me of the retro colours that were worn during a dance done to this song on SYTYCD. Phew.

I think picture two is the closest to the correct colouring. Everyone that catches a glimpse of these bad boys stops me to ask where I got them done.. I love peoples reactions when you tell them you do them yourself. Luckily they don't get right in and look at them. These photos and my eyes show me my mistakes.. But whatever.. They are so much fun. My sister and one of her friends wants me to recreate this look on them.

I actually got the idea from BeenaBop on youtube. I am calling them 'Tropical Zebra'.

Also.. I haven't been keeping up with make-up collections, but I saw some photos of the MAC Style Black collection and am seriously drooling o…
