The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!


1.  Are you a planner, or do you prefer to see where the moment takes you? I am a planner…. not because I have to have everything just so, it’s because I don’t want to miss or leave anything .

2.  How often do you blog?  I usually blog Monday through Friday, but I’ve taken a break from that recently.  My life has been busy, and I haven’t made my blog a priority in the way I have in the past.  I still love it, but I’m learning to let go and live a little more.

3.  Do you color your hair?  No, I haven’t colored my hair since 1996..

4. If you had to choose between running or riding a bike, which one would you choose?  Lately I’ve been doing both, but I’ve noticed that my back has been hurting something awful after a run, and  I usually come off us a bike ride pain free… so I’m gonna go with the bike.

5.  Have you ever traveled outside of your home country?  Yep. Twice! I feel so international

6.  Do you like weddings?  Yes and No…I love them, I love seeing people I know celebrate their love and commitment, but there is always a small part of me that’s a wee bit jealous.  Now the only time I’ absolutely hated a wedding was when I was the maid of honor, the lead us was stressful, the wedding was stressful, and I went above and beyond what I should have (and her careless husband got my car broken into)…I didn’t get a thank you for all your help, I didn’t get the money that was promised to fix my car… and oddly enough I didn’t get any phone calls from them after that….oh well..

7. What is your favorite guilty pleasure on TV? I just recently started watching Toddlers and Tiaras… I’m not sure who’s worst the kids or the moms… But summer times is ALWAYS my favorite time for guilty pleasure TV..every year I tune in the watch Big Brother (although I might stop due to this years cast’s racist, bigoted and homophobic remarks against the other houseguests). But I am totally loving Whodunit? I love a good mystery, and after episode 3 I’m pretty sure I know who the killer is. 6384de08e67011e2bd9722000ae80ebd_6

8.  Are you good at math? How advanced are you talking?

9.  What is the last movie you watched?  Since we aren’t gonna count The Walking Dead Marathon that was on this weekend, I did take a break and spent some time at my parents house to have dinner and we watched Silver Linings Playbook….

10.  Share five adjectives that your friends would use to describe you.  Smart, Friendly, Quick-tempered, Honest, Quick-thinker

78088ddce51911e28b9422000a1fbe38_6Bonus:  Did you celebrate Independence Day?  If so, what did you do? Yes. Generally we go to my aunt’s house; she always has a big spread, family comes from out of town and her neighbors a few doors down always put on fireworks…. it’s always a good time and it’s was a special bonus because it was in the 70’s ‘ so it wasn’t too hot.






Until next Monday!!


Nail Polish Lottery Club – Week 26

20130629_200312First thing first, I cut my nails… I had been going back and forth over whether I wanted to trim my nails, then a super dramatic break made it almost impossible for my to patch….so I did the big chop, and I gotta say I’m loving the short(er) and sassy nails… honestly I think they look healthier and seems like the polish is looking better on my nails…no on to this weeks pick!!!


If you do not have that many polishes in your collection use 24 (or 6)

Julep’s Bunny


Generally as a rule of thumb I do not add white or black nail polish to my list of untried, that’s for several reasons; one, I tend to purchase those colors regularly… and their primary use is for nail art or as an “undie” But this polish was different than the other white’s that I owned, and I instantly wanted it on my nails…the Julep website describes this color as “Crisp white linen with fine gold shimmer” and I instantly knew that it DSC02531was a little different from the other white polishes that I own…  take a look and see for yourself. Now when I saw the polish the motivator to wear it alone was the “fine gold shimmer” imagine my surprise when I put the polish on and I couldn’t find any visible gold shimmer…. looked at my nails at length in different type of lighting and still no gold shimmer…. must be some magic that Julep concocted because you can clearly see the shimmer on the bottle. Now I did go and search out other reviews of this nail polish because I wanted to see if there was a “user error” on my part. And it seems like this polish is hit and miss some people got shimmer, other’s said that this shimmer was clumpy and hard to separate…so who knows…

Before I go any further let me wish all who celebrated a happy belated Canada Day and Independence Day… and for those of you who didn’t I hope you had a wonderful week!! Because it was an extended holiday weekend for me I wanted to be a patriotic and do a easy and fun 4th of July Mani…4th of july and that stay on my nails from Monday till Thursday night, so when I got home from the festivities I changed my mani so that I could give a fair review of Bunny… the application was smooth, I used two coats and was happy with the look (aside from the non shimmer). The next day I was cracksat the gym and I noticed that I had developed fine cracks in the polish, I’ve never had this happen to me before, I’m not sure if it was the combination of the Julep polish formulation and the Sally Hansen Ultra Wear Top Coat.

To give you all a mental picture of the cracks (which were on 4 of 5 of my nails on each hand) where like the fine cracks that are in old china (the exposure on the photo has been adjusted so that the cracks can be seen clearly) For me, white nail polish is always a bit tricky, but I have never had this issue with white polish…… maybe it was simply band luck.

Now I had a LOT to say about this polish, because it seriously hurt my feelings (why has the last couple of pick have done this to me?!) And I did a video where I verbally expressed my feelings, maybe a bit too loud (and to prove I am currently having bad luck) The video quality was fantastic but there was no sound!!!! No Sound!!!But I will post it anyway…. it’s pretty funny actually.. As far as a rating is concerned, this one get’s 4… seriously! I got no shimmer and instead I got cracks after 114 hours of wear… 8 of which I was asleep…. this one will be added to the whites I use for nail art. Hopefully week 27 will bring me better luck!!

Until Next time…
