Swatch comparison: Wallis and Peridot [04 Sep 2011|09:17am]
[ mood | cold ]

After Butter London's Wallis sold out on the Butter London site, I made it a priority to track this one down! I'd been vaguely coveting it since Butter London announced their limited fall lineup.

Green is one of my favorite colors. (Despite the overwhelming amount of blue in my nail polish wardrobe right now - well, blue's a favorite too.) So even though I just got Peridot a couple of months ago I was sure this would find a place in my collection. :3

I begged [personal profile] kishmet to give a look at Ulta, but they were sold out of the two colors I asked for. So, last Wednesday I set out on a quest. I was going to find Wallis and No More Waity, Katie OR DIE TRYING. ...okay, okay, or look through other sources online.

Luckily enough, I found them both at my local Ulta.



And so, a field expedition to Nordstrom was not required.

More pics, and swatch comparison between Wallis and Chanel Peridot )

Next up: playing with the matte top coat I got, and finding strips to do a good French tip.

Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend!

I have one co-worker who can always tell when I'm in pain, because he is also a champion chronic pain sufferer. He's in pain a lot more often than I am. Probably every day. I only have some bad days. I think he occasionally has good days. He can tell from the way I walk, even if I keep it out of my expression and think I'm walking normally.

Today was a really bad day, and he could tell. He told me I should get in to the chiro for an extra session. I resisted, because I knew it was going to be better tomorrow (probably).

Painkillers really do not help. Anything that actually makes a dent will knock me out, and I can't have that if I'm at work or want to be FUNCTIONAL in any way. Better to be in pain and clear-headed than falling asleep at my desk virtually useless.

Still when you're a certain bracket of pain, you're kind of not good for anything, anyhow. >_> But I carpooled, so there was no way to go home early.

That was my day. That and poking at "From the Inside Out." I added a bit that I was really, really happy with. <3 And a bit more Sloane interaction; she needs her time to shine.

Here, have some twinny twins. They are far more COOL than I.

Photobucket

Last night I rocked my house with the Humanoid City tour. No spoilers, but I enjoyed the hell out of the DVD and can't wait to blast it (and risk getting cited for noise) again.

♥Fluff Friday♥


I really enjoyed choosing photos last time around that were ALL smiles, so I decided to go with that theme again. :D

My selection criteria for the band photos this round was very stringent. Is Gustav present? IS HE SMILING!? Yes? *uploads*

Photobucket

Tokio Hotel's smiles through the years )

Photobucket

I just have the one photo of Gustav and Georg on their own. >_> But they're smiling!

Billy Future smiles aplenty! )

If Bill is adorkable, then Tom is aderpable? )

Vintage twins! )

Zimmer twin grins up through Humanoid days )

MAKING A COMEBACK: TH MACRO CATEGORY )

I hope that put a smile on your face! :D Happy Fluff Friday. <333

Eat, drink, man, porn. [25 Apr 2010|10:58am]
[ mood | quizzical ]

I am getting food fatigue! I like to change it up and do different things for my lunches, and the meals I cook on my solo nights. Can anyone suggest me a few vegetarian-with-protein, quick, fun, reasonably tasty recipes to try? If I could ever find some goddamned red lentils, there's a red lentil salad I've been wanting to try. I am a good cook and a relatively non-picky eater and I don't mind trying something adventurous.

My only constraint might be the availability of ingredients. (See above re: lentils.)

I need to start getting more dairy in my diet so I've started having more cheese, yogurt, and Starbucks lattes. What, that last one totally counts. >_>

Writing Question:

Not a meme, but you can take this and post it to your own journal as a meme if you like.

Speaking of trying new recipes and doing things differently, I like to do that with writing, too. What is one (or two, or three) concept or genre that you have not seen me write, but would like me to? Why do you want me to write it?

Stay tuned for the smut proposal.

For the first time in well over a year, I present: A FOODBLOG. I tend to make vegetarian lunches. I've still been doing this, but usually can't be arsed to take photos and post them. Tonight I felt like doing it, considering how much time I expended in the kitchen.

Some tasty-ass lunch dishes )

We're going to see the twins! AGAIN! [25 May 2009|02:32pm]
[ mood | content ]

In my twins-obsession I've been gathering all the photos that come my way. I've been pretty meticulous about keeping an equal amount of Bill balanced with my Tom photos. ♥ My previous post was, like, a fraction of the individual photos I'd collected at the time and now I have more than double... and still collecting. If anyone knows good places to harvest, do point me thataway...

Since we're watching the rest of BSG season one I figured it was a good time to share the results of my hunting-and-gathering.

Photobucket

Wee twins! From their early Schrei years, I think. God, they've got the most adorable smiles.

Click to join me on my visit to see the twins! )

Also you may have heard, the Kaulitz twins are in a band - Tokio Hotel )

Wow! That was a lot. Now for Tom time.

Tomi Tomi Tomi )

I would be remiss if I didn't pay EQUAL attention to Bill.

Bill Billi Bills )

The End. For now.

Holy Guitar Hero OW.

My wrist hurts and the last three fingers of my left hand feel like I have arthritis. Wow. So, hard mode. It's a step up from medium! Quite a painful one!

We have been...moderately productive today. Breakfast at Starbucks, b and Gin cleaned out the fridge, sushi for lunch, grocery shopping, bein' lazy for a few hours etc., then Gin and I killed our left hands with a bit more Guitar Hero and Rock Band 2.

Now we're watching BSG while b writes upstairs in the office. And damn, my neighbors are obnoxious and loud; we had to shut the sliding door.

And apparently weekends are bad times to post fic. =P

Back to BSG.

We're at the theatre waiting for Star Trek to start. GO GO THREE-DAY WEEKEND!

Last night Gin and I graduated to Hard mode on Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero, argh my aching fingers. We needs lots more practice.

The History Channel previews for Ice Road Truckers is freaky.

Still have, uh, two parts waiting for beta? I hope to post another chapter tonight.

UT, I owe you about three birthdays' worth of porn. Or at least SOMETHING.

So here's a limited time offer, drop me a comment reminding me how old you are, giving me an overarching theme, and a handful of desired fandoms and I'll write a drabble to adorn each of your years.

"Quit kibitzing, Eunice." [21 May 2009|06:39pm]
[ mood | happy ]

I want to play Guitar Hero! ...Well, we've got a bit of time before we have to leave for the Santiam, so I just might fire up a few sets.

Writing: Approximately 4,605 words, not counting a few words and sentences added here and there to other parts. There are now five parts out to my beta-reader. *smug* *also, anxious* Total word count is over 20,000 and we've reached...the bottom half of page two on my outline. Which is now 37 pages. Eheheheh.

What can I say? I'm enjoying myself so much.

Dinner: sushi. For some reason I had a lot, I mean a LOT of leftover points after breakfast, lunch, and snacks, so not only did I get to eat whatever I wanted at Sushi Kyo, including delicious spicy hotate, but I can get an espresso truffle before we go to the movie. With whip.

Somehow tonight turned into date night! On a Thursday, no less!

Movie: [info] - personalkuwamiko wants to go see Fast & Furious, so we're catching a 7:40 showing. I plan on wearing my pajamas. Trust me, no one will notice.

Sicky McSickness: Cough has all but disappeared. Still get a bit of a tickle, nothing serious.

And tomorrow is Friday. With a three-day weekend this week, and b has Sunday and Monday off too. YAAAAAAAAY. I declare this week a success.
