I have been faithfully sticking to my no-buy. I have not bought a SINGLE makeup OR nail polish related thing since March 1st. That is well over one month. I have NEVER done that before!
Here are some of the things I've resisted:
-China Glaze Magnetix polish or any other magnetic polish, OR any other China Glaze polish, for that matter
-A bunch of drugstore nail polishes (Maybelline, Sally Hansen Gem Crush)
-A bunch of Hits and Ozotic nail polishes
-Stuff from Illamasqua: APOCALIPS, Scribe, Kontrol, etc.
ARGH, Apocalips almost did me in. It's called APOCALIPS. It's TEAL. I want it. I also saw a display of inexpensive magnetic polishes and a bin of OPI nail polishes for $6 as I walked past a hair salon BUT I RESISTED. I am doing well. Before the end of May, I will need to buy more foundation, primer, powder and eyebrow pencil (my basics that I use daily) but that is ALL that I am allowed to purchase. I actually feel somewhat free and have been enjoying shopping my stash as I have lots of nice stuff already!
Sooooo.....it appears that when I stop buying makeup I start buying shoes.........
My old faithful pair of Demonia boots finally died. I had them for many years and they went with everything and they were comfortable and had a good "balance" for dancing. Unfortunately, after a night out where alcohol may or may not have been involved, I fell off of the curb of a sidewalk and THIS happened. Good times on Whyte Avenue.....
|I shall miss you, old faithful boots.|
I was going to buy another of the same pair but I figured why not change things up a bit. I ordered some new Demonia boots with silver metal panels and HUGE platforms. They look very cyber and awesome but unfortunately the "balance" is off. They aren't as good for dancing as my old ones because my feet move around in them too much and they are too cyber to go with some of my outfits. I might end up getting another pair of my old favourites after all.....
I also got my first pair of New Rock boots! I have been eyeballing New Rocks since I was like, 16 but they were too expensive for me while I was in university. Recently, my HUSBAND bought some and I was so jealous that I had to get my own pair. They are VERY well made with real leather and metal in the soles. I don't think that these will never meet the same fate as my old Demonia boots!
Awhile ago, while browsing the shoes at Aldo, I saw two highlighter-bright pairs of wedges. One was yellow and one was pink. There were matching neon purses to go with them. I LOVE NEON so I was pretty excited! I couldn't decide which colour to get so I went with the yellow shoes and got the pink purse instead of the matching one. The picture doesn't do them justice, they are BRIGHT. I am going to pair them with an all-black outfit.
I also got these quite awhile ago. They are Jeffrey Campbell "Night Nail" shoes. The lack of heel makes them very striking and they hae NAILS studded upon them. How cool is that? They are super easy to walk in even though they look scary. There were another pair of these that had spikes all over them, but I thought that I'd never seen a pair of shoes with nails in them before so I got these.
Here is an awesome pair of shoes that my friend gave me. She bought a pair of black suede heels and added the spikes, studs, and chains to them! They look awesome! I have to be careful not to stab anyone while I'm dancing around in them, lol!
Here is Twiggy playing with my nail file. Both of my cats have it out for the nail file for some reason. Whenever I use it they both try to fight me for it!
The cats like to look out the windows so my husband put up a shelf for them.
They also have a cat tree in the kitchen to sit on and look out the window. We leave the blinds closed during the day. James T. Kirk was not pleased with this. So, he chewed all of the slats off of the side of our venetian blinds so he can look out the window whevever he wants. WTF? I didn't think a cat would do something like this!
He is pretty damn pleased with himself and his handiwork. He was unfortunately really sick this week as he had crystals in his urine which is very dangerous for male cats. He's doing much better now.
Have you ever had one, weird, long white eyelash grow out of nowhere? Recently I had this happen to me. You couldn't really see it until I put on mascara and then it was like, WTF??? It is hardest to see in the last picture because I did not put mascara on it but you can see how long it got. Then one day, it just fell out. Seems kind of odd.
WEIRD THOUGHT OF THE DAY
|Weird lip colours, FTW!|
Did anyone else ever watch the X-men cartoons when they were a kid? Do you remember this fine fellow pictured above? His name is Apocalypse. When I was a kid, I did not know what apocalypse meant so I thought his name was ApocaLIPS because he had those huge lips going on. Now there is a lipstick called Apocalips. Life is strange.
