OPI And Other Musings

I really liked the Pirates of the Caribbean films, but that was when Keira Knightly was in them. Now I'm not so keen to see the new offering. But if there's nothing better to see at the cinema I will, preferably at showing where there will be as few little kids as possible. Even though I'm sure these films are designed for ages 10 and up, parents see 'Disney' and think their brats will stay in the seats for near on two hours. Not gonna happen, now I understand why my parents didn't take me to the pictures until I was 12.

Let's get back on track.

What I meant to lead on to was the OPI collection that coincides with the film. I would have posted a picture of the whole collection but I couldn't find one. I was pondering whether or not to skip this collection and had decided to. Damn Youtube... made me change my mind. After see these polishes pop up in numerous hauls I thought maybe I could use a little POTC on my nails. And I needed to order some lacquer thinner, two birds one stone. As I type this I'm already starting to regret killing that second bird. But they were just so pretty :)


This is Mermaid's Tear, which I'm really excited about. I don't think I own any colours like this, but at the same time I'm worried it'll be too similar to For Audrey by China Glaze to be justified. Although if you saw my collection you'd agree that no new additon are justifiable, especially since I'm trying to save. ¬_¬

Anyways it'll be at least two weeks before the parcel arrives. Maybe if I use up 20 products before then I can get away with it.

Speaking of using things up, I'm in need of a Project Pan.

I need to go wash for bed.

I should show an update on my skin care since I deleted my old posts.

Where Better To Wait For It All To Blow Over

Today was possibly the most windy day of the year. It was so quiet at the cafe I got sent home early. And since I was expected ho early I took the opportunity to take shelter in Hobby Craft. If spent money whilst I was there it was only to be expected...I was in a store Geez! lol!

I bought threading wire to make wrap bracelets with. I made one last night with regular thread, but it didn't hold up, so hopefully threading wire will do the trick.

I also pick up some fabric paints and looked at the Batik supplies (which I'll pick up on my next visit).

Why the sudden craftiness? I hear you cry. I want certain piece for my wardrobe which either aren't available to me or simply don't exist. So I figure why not make it myself?

The wind was seriously crazy, I wish I had my camera to document the mess on my way home. Trees were brutalised folks! The earth swirled in the air. I know this because my face was speckled with it by the time I got home. Hooray for the shower, now I am clean again. But my street is still strewn with crap and topple over wheelie bins (which were full btw, just to emphasise the might of wind).

Hopefully tomorrow will be less windy, maybe even a bit warm or sunny.

No let's not get our hopes up.

It's Timmy Time




The power cable to my external hard drive has decided to bare all and let its wires hang loose. Yup! Now my computer is Gigs away from being chock full and I can't watch Daria. Bummed.
So no videos for the time being.

NOTD: Teenager's Dream In Lilac

Hello Ladies.
I've been shopping my stash lately (post on that later), and I came across this gem still with the plastic on. Models Own Lilac Dream. I bought it after Makeupbymel recommended it and it just sat at the back of the drawer, forgotten about.
The glitter is a recent purchase and current love, OPI Teenage Dream.

I have the strangest feeling that MO's Lilac Dream could be a dupe for OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender.

What's your favourite nail combo?

Sunday Afternoon Tea

Hello Ladies,

Pull up a chair, have some shortbread and I'll pour you an apologetic cup of Chai.
I know it's been a month since I last posted. Work is draining. I either need a new job, a holiday or work less hours (which I will NOT be allowed to do). At the cafe you're either full time or part time, by which I mean you either work 5 days a week or one day a week. There is no middle ground (which kinda sucks). But finding a new job is quite high on the priority list. I love a job where I don't come home stinking of bacon fat. Enough of my woes.
I'm back and buzzzing with things to talk about.
How have you all been?
Love and Bugs
