Remember how I talked about the amazing weather just a few short days ago? Yeah, that went away real fast.. Now we’re just left with clouds and a slight drizzle. The good thing about the clouds is that it inspires indoor activities such as catching up on photo editing and stuff. When I’m not reading or napping on the couch that is….
Some of the pictures I finally had a chance to edit are these ones of a new (to me) type of nail powder.
I have an entire drawer filled with nail powders, and honestly, I don’t use them too often once the initial interest dies down, but everytime I see a new type, I HAVE to have it. Terrible habit, really.. #nailaddictsunite
I’ll be totally honest with you, when I picked these out, I hadn’t read the name and description closely enough, and in the product pictures the images looked so smooth that I thought these were water decals.
Unfortunately, when they showed up, they turned out to be stickers, which I have not had the best experiences with before (here, here or here).
Sigh.. I really wish they were water decals so I could get some wear out of them, because how beautiful is this landscape/waterside scenery? I fell in love when I saw them, but when they start to peel around the edges within the hour, it’s not so much fun anymore..
I mean, I press them on flat, I put a layer of top coat on top – sometimes two. Is it the curve of my nails that does it? Have any of you guys tried something like this?
I’ve spent last week rereading Nora Phoenix’s No Shame series. I had already read them all around New Year’s, but I had a break between #3 and #4 because the last one wasn’t published yet, and since its a series, I wanted the full experience of reading them in succession.
I absolutely love this series! I was a little unsure with the first two books, as you’ll also read in my reviews, but they touched something in me, so I kept going. And they just got better and better!
As you may know, I started bullet journaling in January, but I posted it a little bit late, so it’s actually the newest post before this one….
Anyways, anyone else feeling the winter blues? I know I am, so my February theme and setup is all about bringing some brightness and happiness back into my life.
The theme is citrus fruits, and my accent color is orange, so there are more oranges than other fruits.
Last month, I had a grid style calender, but I felt it took up too much space considering how little events I have in a month. So this month, I am trying out a vertical layout instead, and so far I am really liking it! There is still room to write two or three events, birthdays, tasks etc., so I’m really liking that.
My to do list grew a bit since I filled it all out in January, and I added a table for review copies. I am lucky enough to be reviewing books regularly, so to get an overview over the books and their deadlines, I am putting them in here. That way I can see when they’re due, what my progess is on them (read, reviewed, done) etc.
