Water Is A Miracle Worker

15 Apr

I’m so sorry I haven’t blogged lately. My MacBook crashed and I lost all of my files… However the kind and wonderful technician at the Apple store found them for me! My laptop is still there due to it needing a hardware part or something to that degree. So here I am, typing on my iPod touch. It sucks, to be honest.

Anyhow, what happened to me via the drinking of tons of water was so worth blogging on an iPod.

Lately I’ve been breaking out alot and I’m guessing it is because of exam stress. Well, just yesterday I decided to drink more water. So I drank tons of water (with a slice of lime squeezed into it!) all day long. Lo and behold, I wake up this morning and my skin has 80% fewer zits than it did yesterday morning! I was actually stunned! I don’t know it was because of the lime or what it was, but it worked!

So, if you struggle with the occasional (bad) breakout like I do, DRINK WATER!!!!!!!!!

That is all. 🙂

Love y’all!

Keep calm and swag on.

(Mostly) Spring Favourites

1 Apr

These are some of my favourite polish colours for spring and summer of 2012.

From left to right: Sally Hansen Insta-Dry “Whirlwind White”, “Pink Blink”, and “Fuchsia Flare”. Essie “Little Brown Dress”, “Sand Tropez”, “Play Date”, “St. Lucia Lilac”. Essie Luxeffects Topcoat “Shine of The Times”. Revlon “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat”.

Little Brown Dress is a bit too dark for spring, but it works well for an accent nail!

This is a swatch of Essie “St. Lucia Liliac”, which I painted on my mom’s nails earlier today. It is definitely one of my favourite Essie colours of all time! Perfect for spring. This is two coats of St. Lucia and one coat of the Relvon Top Coat.

This is a swatch of Essie “Sand Tropez” which I have on my nails right now. I have searched high and low for a beachy, nude nail colour for spring, and I think I hit the jackpot with this one! It’s the perfect mixture of grey and brown. It looks exactly like sand! This is two coats of Sand Tropez and one coat of Revlon Top Coat.

Here are some of the colours up close so you guys can see their beauty for yourselves!

This is such a beautiful slightly holographic glitter that I had to add more than one picture! 🙂

And last, but not least, my favourite top coat of all time! Revlon “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat”. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again. There is NOTHING like this top coat! It makes my nails hard as rock and you can sleep on it without worrying if your nails will have ‘pillow prints’ on them the next morning! Fabulous stuff!

That’s it for today.

Have a lovely day, my dears!
