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 mind this.. I am not a fan of the whole upchucking deal. I find that when the head pain starts to take over, I just close my eyes for a few, it wards off the pain for awhile. Or I have to use strong meds to stop the pain and put myself to sleep!

I have been extremely careful about everything I do though.. Sanitizing everything, frequent handwashing, having my own towel to dry my hands, etc. So far my family seems to be doing well, which is super good!

ANYWAYS! This isn't a post to just talk about what a disease-bag I am, it is to talk about MY SECRET SANTA.. From elfster of course :D

I awoke to find a package sitting on my dresser, looked at the sender, and was super excited!! I actually cracked a smile, it hurt, but was totally worth it!!



If I am not mistaken, she is Theresia of Amused Polish.. And what she sent is AMAZING!!

I received:

3 nail polish (Essence Colour & Go in 'Disco Glam'; S-he Stylezone in 'Aqua Shine'; and a franken called 'Grass Is Always Greener' which I am extremely excited about!!!);

An adorable lip blam from Claire's - the flavour/scent is Cookie Dough!

An Essence stamping kit! That is really awesome to me because it is something I have never heard about! AND! The plate is amazing! It has stars! I seriously almost screamed when I saw it - but decided not to, my brain is shatterable I believe.

Oh, and these candies.. That are fizzy and sour and wonderful!!

Thank you thank you thank you! I cannot wait to try out these gems!!!

Sure hope you don't have H1N1! Hope your feeling better. I know the regular flu really knocks you out. Nice Christmas gift.

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!! Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you! I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit. Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this! I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed. Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time! The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are! Thi
