Revlon's Sweetly Seductive Scents

Hellooo! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! My morning started off horribly, but my man indulged my lacquer love by bringing me to Walgreens and got me the new scented Revlons! If you're interested in them, they're BOGO1/2off at Walgreens this week.

Index: Grape Fizz
Middle: Mint Fizz
Ring: Colada Fizz
Pinky: Apple-tini Fizz

right hand
Index: Watermelon Fizz
Middle: Grapefruit Fizz
Ring: Orange Fizz
Pinky: Pineapple Fizz

I must say that even though they're sheer, they're AWESOME. You can layer them or if you don't mind VNL, you can wear them alone. If my wallet wasn't a shriveled up mess right now, I'd probably get me some backups!

Well, that's all for now! Thanks for looking! =D

Popping in!

Wow it's been a LONG time! Do I suck at this or what? Man, I was struggling this semester and I had such a hard time concentrating, but I made it through!

And some bigger news... I got engaged! My OH and I had been discussing it for a while and one day it was just like oh my gosh, we're gonna get married! So he let me pick out my ring and he actually pulled off a surprise proposal! There he was, sitting on my bed with my guitar, which he doesn't play but he learned a tune from "Friends"... You might be familiar with it... It's a tune that immediately makes me think of Phoebe called "Smelly Cat" but with his own words. He had me laughing and crying all at once!

Here's a picture of us right after - he caught me looking like a bum in my PJs! lol

So now that the semester is over we're in the middle of moving and after that we gotta get to planning our wedding for January 17, 2012! That's our anniversary =)

Well, I hope I haven't bored you too much! How about some quick and dirty swatches?? Can you guess which collection these babies are from??

That's right! China Glaze Metro for Fall 2011! Here are the names...

1st pic
Index - Trendsetter
Middle - Midtown Magic
Ring - CG in the City
Pinky - Skyscraper

2nd pic
Index - Westside Warrior
Middle - Concrete Catwalk
Ring - Street Chic
Pinky - Urban-Night

These are supposed to be released sometime in July I think? Maybe sooner, but when I saw these at a local beauty supply I think I just about peed my pants! I could hardly wait to swatch them! The cremes were so smooth and glossy! I think I want the other four that I skipped out on... Oh boy! Hehe

So that's all I've got for ya for now. I hope you've enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by! =)

Nails, Nails, and Bonus Pics!

Hellooo! I assure you that today's post is much better than the last, or at least I hope so lol. I will not bore you with too many words, so onto the pics! ^.^

China Glaze - Fortune Teller

Never thought I'd find this beauty, but thanks to a friend who indulged my nail polish addiction by stopping into Sally's with me, here she is... oOoOoo... Hehe. I couldn't have found her without you LL ;) LL is actually a big reason I'm posting again. She's been telling me to blog, so I told her I'd try to this weekend, and here we are! ^.^

I won this next one from one of the many awesome giveaways at Body and Soul. One word. AWESOME!

Del Sol - Trick or Treat, indoors

Del Sol - Trick or Treat, out in the sunlight

If you did not know, Del Sol nail polishes change color when they're in the sun! What a beautiful contrast! I did not want to take this baby off.

Oh right, less words, more pics!

Revlon - Perplex

Orly - Space Cadet

Sally Hansen - Mystic Lilac

Base: OPI - Play Til Midnight
Stamp color: Orly - Dazzle
Image Plate: XL-A

I don't know why, but I think this looks a lot better in real life... I've been wearing this since Tuesday night and I'm still loving it ^.^

Now for bonus pics!

Meet Bacon! The only girl and oldest of 8 pups. This was around the time we got her in mid-November. She was almost 9 weeks old here.

Our little girl is almost 5 months old now... My, they grow so fast! Here she is at 4 1/2 months! You can't tell from the pics, but she's doubled, maybe even tripled in size!

Her baby brother, who is the youngest of the 8 pups, lives with my BF's family. They're crazy together! Here I am with them at 14 weeks old. Bacon on the right, her brother on the left.

You can't tell from the pic before, but Bacon is double the size of her brother! Here they are on a vet visit together at 15 weeks old. Bacon on the right, her brother on the left.

And there you have it. I hope you've enjoyed this post! Thanks for stopping by! ^.^

Holy Moly!

< Update >

I went to check up on CashBaq's website and this is the message they have up now:

"Like so many other companies, Cashbaq was hit by the worst recession of our lifetime.
We regret that Cashbaq is unable to continue operations and has shut down.

You can earn cash back at other sites including iGive, uPromise, Mr. Rebates, FatWallet, and Ebates.
You can also compare cash back rebates at Evreward."

It's about time! Who knows how many people got ripped off in the extra 3 months they kept their website up. I think I read somewhere that someone was waiting on a check for hundreds of dollars... Talk about ridiculous. Sometimes it can be so hard to trust. At least they're finally shut down though!

< /Update >

I have been gone so long! So much has happened, from friends getting married and having babies to midterms and finals! After finals, I just hid away in bed for so long that I ended up getting too lazy to do anything - EEK! Well, I'm not here to write about anything nail related, but I was so outraged with this online rebate site that I had to share this with anyone who can help spread the word.

BEWARE of CashBaq. -Happened to me :(

Basically, they were a trusted company for a while... Lucky me, within a month or so of joining, I was told that a check was on its way to me some time in November. I never received the check so I searched for a phone number, but couldn't find one. I ended up messaging customer service by opening a "ticket" on their site asking about the check and never got a response. I checked back every once in a while and saw that the ticket was gone. So I opened another ticket that's still sitting there, probably waiting to be deleted too. Their site is still up and running with an updated copyright at the bottom for 2002-2011. Just thought I'd try to warn whoever I can so that this won't happen to more people.

Thanks to anyone who is still following my blog after all this time! I hope that my next post will be more positive, but until then, that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
