Sally Hanson Insta-Dri Polish in Lightening

[Sally Hanson Insta-Dri Nail Polish in #10 Lightening]

The promised photo of my new nail polish. I’ll post one of the pink in a few days when I switch it from my toes to my finger nails… I don’t think anyone would appreciate a photo of my monkey toes splashed across the top of my blog!

I love this color – it’s so bright and happy! I definitely recommend adding some bright colors to your polish collection this season. Bright polish is an easy way to refresh any look – plus, it’s an instant mood lifter!

I’m off to bed now, going to watch some Smallville with T, but I promise an outfit post tomorrow! ‘night my lovelies 🙂

new acquisitions

Today was a busy day… went to the donation center, went grocery shopping, then to the mall! T bought me some fabulous new things that I took some photos of them for you:

[destroyed denim shorts: vanity, $24.80; studded purse: vanity, $19.80, on sale for $4.99]

I *love* these… already planning my outfit for them! I’m thinking white tee, shorts, purse, and either colorful sandals (which I still need to acquire) or my black wedges. I’m REALLY hoping it will be warm enough to wear this outfit sometime soon, but I’m pretty sure it’s only going to be in the 60s for the next week, and it’s supposed to storm Monday and Tuesday 😦 sad panda…

If I can locate $8, I can go back and get the black lacy dress they are holding for me till Monday… I want it so freaking badly! It’s really cute, and it looks great on me. It’s hard for me to find clothes that I really like on me, so when I do I get really excited – especially when they’re on sale for super cheap. I really hope I can scrounge up the $8!

I love Vanity’s clothes. It’s rare for me to walk into a store and want everything I see. I’m kind of picky about what I wear, so normally I have to search for a minute to find the perfect outfit. Vanity is a completely different story – I wanted to cry when I walked in there today because I wanted to buy the entire store! I LOVE their clothes! Their clothes are always so much fun, the right amount of casual, mixed with the right amount of cute, the right amount of sexy and the perfect amount of comfort! Many of their shirts and tees are perfect for layering, and they always have the cutest accessories. One of my favorite things about Vanity is that they always have cute belts on clearance for ridiculously cheap, and in my experience their clothes actually last a while. They’re pretty decent quality, and even the ones that aren’t on sale or clearance are fairly reasonable price. My only complaint is that sometimes it seems like the neck holes on their basic tees are a little too tight… Maybe I just have a giant head, but it’s hard to get my head through them! I still love them though, and other than that they always fit perfectly.

Acquired some new nail polish today, and I will post some photos of those results later tonight or tomorrow. I rarely paint my nails, but when I do, I typically go for dark colors (black, dark red, purple, etc). Today I decided to go for something different, and chose some colors that are bright and cheery. I got a bright yellow (#10 Lightening, Sally Hanson Insta-Dri, $4.50) and a hot pink (#14 Flashy Fuchsia, Sally Hanson Insta Dri, $4.50). I’m really excited about them! Normally I try to match my fingers to my toes, but I’m thinking it could be cute to do the yellow on my finger nails and the pink on my toes. The bottles are sitting next to each other now and they look awesome together!

Lightening & Flashy Fuschia Polish

And if you’re like me at all, and you never paint your nails because you’re to busy to wait for them to dry, you must try Sally Hanson Insta-Dri nail polish. It dries ridiculously fast. It’s made my life so much easier! It’s pretty rare that I use something else, but once I’m able to get a wider range of colors in the Insta-Dri family, I will probably donate all of my other polish to my friends. I’ve got better things to do with my time, I don’t want to waste any of it sitting around waiting for my damn nail polish to dry!

yay for new shoes!

[shoes: charlotte russe; tights: bebe]

Got my new shoes today 🙂 Aren’t they gorgeous?!? AND they were on sale for $15! I’m a little excited about them lol… Normally I refuse to wear shoes inside, and I’ve been wearing these since the moment I got them, and I’ve already gotten tons of complements. These shoes make me happy. The heel is 5″ tall, and the platform on the front is about 1 1/2 inches, but they are surprisingly comfortable. They fit perfectly, and they’re (relatively) easy to walk in. I’ve tripped a couple times (haha), but I think once I get used to wearing them I’ll be okay. Yay for shoes!!!

Going back down to the mall as soon as Travis gets his pay check and he’s going to get me my birthday present. Sweet! We were supposed to get it today, but his check wasn’t in the mail… if it’s not there tomorrow I’m going to be pissed. Apparently in Utah, if you get fired your employer has 24 hours to get you your last pay check… and it’s been over a week since they fired Travis! Plus, they are not technically supposed to mail it – they’re supposed to hand it to you as they fire you. OMG. If it’s not here tomorrow I’m seriously considering calling a lawyer. This is fucked up! We needed that money today to pay our rent… thankfully we have an understanding land lord, but if it’s not here tomorrow I don’t know if she’ll be as understanding!

*sighs*

In other news…

We’re going to donate plasma tomorrow afternoon. It’s not fun, but it’s money. I just hope it doesn’t take the entire day like it did the first time we did it (which was two years ago and I haven’t done it since). Between the two of us we’ll get $60, which is enough to buy my birthday presents and still have a little left over. I want my presents now 😦

cocktail rings

[pink & gold cameo ring: bebe; twisted metal rhinestone ring: f21]

Wore my rings today. I know the gold one clashes, but it’s so pretty and I love it… I’ll wear it for a few days and when it’s shiny newness wears off I’ll put it in a drawer somewhere and forget about it. And in case you’re wondering, the nail polish I’m wearing is Hard Candy in Fishnet. Normally I avoid bright colors, but I *love* this color! It’s just the right amount of pop. I think I’m going to try nail polish in bubble gum pink, sunny yellow, and maybe a bright teal or turquoise. I’ll be sure to post photos when I do 🙂

Added loads of new stuff. Check out my new pages on the right, there is a lot of interesting info (if you’re interested in fashion, that is, and let’s face it… if you’re not interested in fashion you’re probably not still reading this post).

I am really, really tired. I am actually falling asleep at my computer. WTF??? It’s only 9:15 pm….. Maybe I should just go bed and catch up on my sleep.
