I was tagged with the Kreativ Blogger award awhile back by the super amazing Minty over at Haute Lacquer.. I am finally going to accept the award and get some facts up here for all of you to peruse. (I really like reading people’s responses.. I think they are always great!) – be sure to check out her blog if you haven’t already! She posts up swatches and nail art!

Write 10 facts about yourself.
Pass the award to 10 bloggers and tell them about the award.

Ooh boy, 10 facts.. I will try to make these “facts” that I haven’t mentioned yet.

1. I have lost a lot of weight within the last year, in fact, it hasn’t even been a year and I am still in shock and awe when I step on to a scale. The number keeps getting smaller and that makes me feel.. Good? BUT! I am having some serious body dysmorphic issues. I am constantly asking for reassurance, and it isn’t that I fishing for compliments, but I still feel like I look the same.. There is the odd time that I will catch myself in a mirror in a store or my reflection in glass and I have to stop and stare. That sounds so egotistical, but I cannot believe it is really me. Hopefully I can get to a point where I know exactly how I look.. (does that sound crazy.. hmmm)

2. I have this “social anxiety” type thing.. I can be in crowded places, but I need to have someone I know really well around me at all times. If I am left alone in said crowded places, even if it is friends of my friend, I get uncomfortable until I get extremely upset and have to leave. I hate it. I cannot rid myself of it.

3. I am very protective of the people I choose to have in my life. My family and friends mean the world to me. It is gross how much I care about all of them!! 

4. I really like gaming. Almost as much as I like nail polish.. Which is a WHOLE lot.

5. One of my sister’s best friend (and someone that I have come to also call ‘friend’) and I are obsessed with Sephora. On the Edmonton trip we all went on, her and I had to have our photo taken outside of the store, we sandwiched the Sephora logo with our shopping bags in hand. We know we are getting one here now. We plan to be at the grand opening.  

6. I really like music. But I am sort of weird about it. I have tons of songs/albums/etc, but I make playlists every few weeks and specifically only listen to the songs on said list. Once I seem to be skipping more tracks than I listen to, I make a new list. I have songs I have purchased on iTunes from listening to a preview and still have not listened to the full song. I know, weird!

7. Minty wrote this as her fact 7, and I completely agree with it, so I am also going to use it. “I am ALL FOR gay rights. 100%, no question about it. I may not be bisexual or a lesbian but I truly believe in gay rights.” – I feel that in these times, it shouldn’t matter who you love and whom you want to marry. It cannot make “statistics” any worse.

8. This is probably going to sound really horrible, but I swear I have a limit of time spent listening in a day.. I sometimes literally tune out of conversations. I honestly do not mean to, but it happens. I also notice my listening skills deteriorate when certain people will not stop talking.. That might not be a coincidence.. Probably mostly work related.

9. I follow a fairly particular night routine. If I miss a step and I’m already nested in my bed, reading, I will actually make myself get up and do said missed step. The only times this routine can be void is when I am not at my own place. That makes it sound so strange. It is really just showering/washing up, applying lotions, brushing the chops, etc, but I do things in a specific way.

10. I read more teen ‘novels’ as an adult than I ever did as a teen. When I was 12, the dad had me reading university literature... Now that I’m older, I get to read the easy and fun books! Yes!



I was also given the Liebster award by Swaafie – Thanks a bunch!! She is amazing and has some incredibly unique nail art! Make sure you scope out her blog!!

Thank you both very, very much!!

You all know how terrible I am with tagging others. If anyone wants to have the Kreativ blogger award and post up 10 facts about themselves – then – I tag YOU! I want to read your facts!!

I will be back next time with some sort of nail art or something.. See you then!!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
