Too Soon

By Hey Ocean! is the 'Song of The Week'. Let me just start by saying I love Hey Ocean!, they are just amazing in my books, and the fact that they're Canadian (eh!) doesn't hurt either :) Plus, the video is one of those understated-ly amazing things, that proves something can be great without FLASHY! and boobs and butts hanging out. I mean, this is me talking -the person who bought $40 worth of glitter in one shot- so to have something not super sparkly and fancy that I like has to be good. Anyways, hope you had a great weekend, and about Sierra, I'll just tell you right now, that it is not the last misspelled post you will see from here (and by the way, I don't have a choice either :)

What's Magenta, Green and Pearly All Over?

My Julep box! I finally received my polishes from Julep today! I've swatched them on my nail wheel and they are gorgeous! In case you were wondering, I received Helena which is an ultra-saturated fuchsia, Leah, a grass green shimmer, and Melissa, a sheer opalescent colour that flashes blue (it is not holographic). Besides the fact that these are gorgeous; they were only 1 cent! Altogether! Right now, if you use the promo code - COLORS4ONE or PENNY, you can get your own Julep polishes for the same price here. Here are the ones they are currently offering in the It Girl Intro Box. There are other options (4), that have 2 polishes and a other goods, like hand cream or cuticle oil.
It Girl Intro BoxHeather, chic platinum greige with a metallic glow.

  • Helena, ultra-saturated fuchsia. Looks great on all skin tones.
  • Mandy, fresh, bright, deep coral-pink

  • In other news, I also got my EOS lip balm from I've only been using it for about, ummm... 15 minutes, but I like it so far. I got the sweet mint flavor, and it's yummy :)

    Song of the Week

    (This was supposed to be posted yesterday, but Blogger had a hissy-fit yesterday and wouldn't let me post it)

    I am really indecisive (just to let you know, I just spend 6.38 minutes trying to think of that word), and when it comes to music, I don't like just one genre. I don't really like any genre more than another. My least favourite type of music is what I like to call 'Radio Roadkill', which is basically when a song gets played on the radio so much that you can't even listen to it after a week, and it dies. I'm one of those people who listens to songs that know one else knows, but wishes they did once it's over. Anyways, I'm just going to tell you my favourite song of the week (that doesn't, no hasn't gotten airplay, or very much, or is older). And if anyone is out there reading, they can suggest songs. I'm not expecting you to like every song, but getting a chance to hear new music is a win-win for all, in my opinion. I'll try to change it up each week. So. without further adieu here's the song:

    Colors - April Smith and the Great Picture Show

    And yes, I heard this on a Lowe's commercial. And yes, while listening to this, I finished painting my little wall, which is now a magnetic chalkboard. Awesome, I know. This song is just so catchy and upbeat, it makes me want to do either something cute and crafty, or line dance. But, as my friend so kindly suggested, not both at the same time, because holding scissors and do-si-do-ing at the same time is a very dangerous mix.

    Really Quite Cute Fridays

    I am a big animal person (there is a cat on my lap and a dog at my feet as I am typing this), but when people ask me whether I am a dog or cat person, it's not really something I can answer. Sure I have a cat because I'm too busy (read: lazy) to do all the work of taking care of a dog, but I still am almost always taking care of one. Ash -my aunt's Bichon-Shih Tzu mix- is staying over now. I do however agree that dogs and cats are to very different breeds, just like their owners. Here's a little 'diary' that has been floating around the magical place that is the Internet that sums up how different dogs and cats think. I thought it was fun, so I thought I would share.

    The Dog's Diary
    8:00 am - Dog food! My favourite thing!
    9:30 am - A car ride! My favourite thing!
    9:40 am - A walk in the park! My favourite thing!
    10:30 am - Got rubbed and petted! My favourite thing!
    12:00 pm - Milk bones! My favourite thing!
    1:00 pm - Played in the yard! My favourite thing!
    3:00 pm - Wagged my tail! My favourite thing!
    5:00 pm - Dinner! My favourite thing!
    7:00 pm - Got to play ball! My favourite thing!
    8:00 pm - Wow! Watched TV with the people! My favourite thing!
    11:00 pm - Sleeping on the bed! My favourites thing!

    The Cat's Diary
    Day 983 of My Captivity
    My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.
    The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. Bastards!
    There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.
    Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.
    I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now ...

    I'd love to make Really Quite Cute Fridays a weekly thing. If any body's reading; do we like? Have a great weekend, the weather's great here, hope it's the same for you! I'll leave you with an picture of my cat blue and my arm in my pre-fabulous-ness room.

    My Nail Polish Collection

    Okay, My Stash was in need of a serious update, as my collection grew, my old system couldn't hold up. It just became too messy, and too complicated to look through. After some deliberation, I choose a nice neat Google Doc, but don't know if I will keep this forever either.
    As for my collection, as of writing this, I have about 200 polishes, with a couple on the way from swaps. As you can tell, I'm not a brand snob, and have a whole array of different brands, from Wet N' Wilds to OPIs. I don't have many higher-end brands, but if I can snag a nice one for a good price I will definitely hop on it. I honestly barely buy a nail polish for full price. Most of the time, I buy about 5-15 polishes a month, any more than that and I go on a no-buy or low-buy the following month, which is usually happens after Christmas and my birthday. I also don't keep dupes. If I have a dupe they either go into my blog sale (check it out, there are some great lovelies), to a friend or into my giveaway stash. Anyways, please ask me if you'd like to see a polish swatched, I'd love to be able to do that for someone :)
