As most of you know I got three awesome Alex & Ani bracelets for my birthday. I have worn them every day since I got them, with the exception of when I am cleaning or taking a shower. What you might not know is that I tend to put things in "safe places" when I don't want to lose them. Unfortunately my safe places are so safe, I tend to forget where they are. I have put my bracelets in a safe place and now they are gone! I am so bummed! My wrist already feels naked and lost without them. I have been looking for them since Monday. I have re-traced my steps from Sunday night, but it hasn't helped. I was cleaning the kitchen and took them off, that I remember. But then I also remember taking them off when I cleaned the bathroom and when I took a bath. So which was the last time I took them off and where did I leave them? My kids have offered up all my usual hiding places, but nope they are not there. I REALLY want to find them!
Unfortunately this is the way of my life. I misplaced my diamond earrings over two years ago, by putting them in a safe place and I haven't found them since. Now why in the world would I have not locked them in my jewelry box? I don't know, maybe cause that would make too much sense! Once I lost where I put the iPod I bought for my daughter for Christmas and I had to go out on Christmas Eve to get a new one. I ended up finding that iPod over a month later right before Valentine's Day. Another year I lost the Nintendo DS I bought for one of my daughters only to find it after Christmas, when we were putting the decorations away. Not wanting to repeat the iPod scenario I put the DS in the decorations knowing that once we took the tree down, the DS would be found. I actually did this knowing I would lose it! Isn't that crazy? So now my new Alex & Ani bracelets have been added to the things I lost list. Maybe they are hanging out with the diamond earrings somewhere?
On the bright side, I recently swatched OPI Lucerne - tainly Look Marvelous. This is very similar to China Glaze Jitterbug, but it has a bit of a subtle green hue and takes three coats for coverage. I think I like Jitterbug better. Unfortunately I don't have many pictures of this one since they didn't come out well. I was planning on redoing them, but it has been a hectic week and my SpaRitual Precocious manicure still looks perfect. But perfect or not I will be changing this manicure tonight.

Here is a comparison of China Glaze Jitterbug vs. OPI Lucerne - tainly Look Marvelous. LLM is on the middle and pinky fingers. Jitterbug is on the index and ring fingers.
