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 the scarf look, but didn't think I could pull it off.. I can! Yay!




I bought these two beauties at a 'going out of business' sale for $5 each. I am unimpressed with how the scarf on the left photographed! It has this amazing gold threading throughout it and it is shimmery. Ahh well!

Then.. my mom wanted to go to 'Dutch Growers', which is supposed to be just a flower/plant superstore, but it is actually a supplier of Konad here (weird eh?).. so I agreed to go with.. AND! They had the OPI holiday collection.. I was super pumped and got my mitts* on Sapphire In The Snow. I also picked up my third replacement bottle of Alpine snow. Plus another scarf. Two are pictured here because the next day my sister and her friend went, and I asked her to grab this other one I was eyeing up.. Anyways!




The only thing I am disappointed about is the nailpolish price! They weren't listed, but I figured MAXIMUM $10.. No.. $12. It is waaaay cheaper for me to order polishes in. But whatever. I NEEDED these two. Hah!

I am in love with SITS - I swear it was made for me! I cannot stop looking at my nails! I had them just plain for a day.. But realized plain polish is not me.






Sapphire.. met A Grape Fit! I love them together! My two favourite purple-y polishes united? LOVE!

*I mentioned mitts up above.. My mitts that I had ordered from http://www.etsy.com/ arrived awhile back.. I LOVE THEM!!! (I am full of love lately.. huh).




They are made by iLzeDR - and let me tell you, she is amazing! I messaged her about their warmth factor because I live in a place where we can see -60C (-76F) and I want my mitts to be WARM so my hands don't freeze. She offered to make them out of wool and add liner inside. Let me tell you, these bad boys keep my hands TOASTY!! I also like the length of them! So great!

Anyways.. That is my massive update post. Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone :D

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!

This is actually …

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!!
I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica, SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica. They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!!
One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop.. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well.
I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop:

Created out of the needs and desires of T.…

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
