Hi lovelies! *Oh my glob!* I feel like it has been a really long time since I have posted anything. I have been so sick and struggling with my health, so I haven't been able to do much of anything. I am feeling better now and I have a lot of school work to catch up on, but I hope you will continue to read and follow my blog. =) Although I am still feeling fairly fragile, I have been slowly getting back to being me! Recently, my lovely nail technician had helped me do a Hello Kitty themed manicure.
I used the white Revlon nail polish that came in my December GlossyBox. The formula wasn't thick and goopy as it usually is with white nail polishes. However, it was very thin and sheer, so it took at least three coats to look opaque. For the Hello Kitty design, I used a special "Fauxnad" template that I purchased online. I will post about it later. I hope I don't forget. >_<
This polish was okay, but I didn't like how it looked by itself. It was patchy, sheer, and uneven looking. I had to use more than 3 layers on some nails, so my nails are really thick. However, It is the end of the week and I have not experienced any chipping (unlike China Glaze *cough*). I would use this polish again.
MAC x Archie:
I recently received the MAC Archie's Girls mailer. I am not a fan of the Archie comics and I have tried reading them in the past and just couldn't get into it. I preferred the more boyish genres and really liked X-Men, Batman, Spiderman, etc. Being a girl, I still enjoyed my Barbie, My Little Pony, and Polly Pocket toys, but I also really liked my cousin's dinosaurs, Lego, and Hot Wheels. I really like the Archie make up, but I already spent a lot games.
Gaming is Fabulous
I preordered Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch! It is an awesome JRPG (Japanese Role Playing Game). This is a must have game for RPG lovers and those who enjoy Studio Ghibli films. My favourite Studio Ghibli films are Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Totoro and Ponyo.
I also purchased my very own PS3. My bf took me to pick it up yesterday. I used to borrow my sister's PS3, but sharing consoles with other active gamers is very difficult. This is the limited edition Crystal White Playstation 3. I have a very powerful PC for most games (see here for my rig), but many rpgs aren't available for PC. The Crystal White PS3 is aesthetically pleasing and "limited edition" makes it so much more appealing. I am really excited about playing everything!
This is my "happy place" and new set up. I had purchased the Samsung 32 inch LED tv from the FutureShop boxing day sale. These are the current platforms I play on. The red Mario limited edition WII belonged to my late bf. I haven't tried very many games on the WII. I have been meaning to soft mod it with an external hardrive, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I also have my beloved soft modded PSP and my Hello Kitty Nintendo 3DS (you can find it here). I love being able to play games from bed and not have to sit in front of my computer all day.
Nom Nom Food
Yesterday, my very sweet bf surprised me with some goodies from Sweet Impressions. Sweet Impressions operates in Winnipeg and is peanut free! They make "soy butter" which is an alternative to peanut butter, and is very delicious. I highly recommend their cupcakes. I used to pick them up after my visits at St. Boniface hospital, but they had closed down that location. I was very upset about it until I realized that they had moved locations. The location at Stafford and Pembina is much closer to my home. The cupcakes are quite expensive, but is a tasty, occasional treat.
I actually love the Valentine's Day theme. I don't believe that it is a holiday for couples only. I think it can also be a day to tell your friends and family that you love them. This cookie is so cute! I can't get myself to eat it.
The bf knows that my favourite cupcake is the Chunky Monkey, which is chocolate and banana. He really made me smile, because I have a real sweet tooth! It was a really nice surprise. It makes me very happy when people randomly show up at my door with delicious treats.
Yum! This is a Chunky Monkey cupcake with a Lumpy Space Princess purple star cookie. My sister said that the cookie tastes like multivitamins.
This is the raspberry cupcake. *Oh my glob!* This cupcake is delicious. It is possibly a new favourite. I could really taste the raspberry in the cream, which isn't too sweet. My problem with cupcakes is that most of the time, the icing is too sweet for my taste. I really enjoyed this cupcake with strawberry herbal tea.
Food, gaming, nutrition and health are other my major interests aside from beauty and cosmetics. Would you be interested in reading more about these topics?
