Disco Inferno

I am sick as a dog with the flu right now. So much for the flu shot! I just hope I feel better soon, I still have way to much to do at work before going on vacation and I still have some Christmas shopping to finish up. Poor Juan is going to die if he has to finish the shopping. I know he will do it, but that is not his favorite thing. But for all of you who feel sick and go to work anyway - you suck! Just call in sick so the rest of us don't get sick! Your not a hero if you go to work sick. You are actually being inefficient. You can't give 100% because your not feeling well. then you spread your germs around the office and a whole bunch of other people call in sick which effects the company even more than if you just called in sick! We have had so many people calling in these last few weeks, and yet so many more coming in with a sore throat or not feeling well saying they are too busy to stay home. WTF! So now here I am having had the flu shot sick. Thanks! I honestly never felt this sick before. Well no I can't say that exactly. I have never felt this pain before. I was in so much pain yesterday morning, I couldn't move. I just whined. My poor husband had to call in sick for me and make a doctor's appt for me and take me to the doctor's. When the doc said I had the flu, I thought he must be crazy - this is way worse than the flu. He assured me it would be even worse had I not gotten the flu shot. I just can't imagine worse than what I felt yesterday! Today I feel better than yesterday, but still sick. I haven't had a fever since about 9:30 last night, so I am hoping the worst is over. I am going to try to work from home today, but I just want to sleep, so let's see what happens. Sleep or work.

ANYWAY, last Friday was my works Annual Party. It was a casual casino night. I had planned a cute black top with jeans, but wanted to bling out my nails. I had intended on doing the faux bob, but my hair was not having it. It refused to take the curls. So I ended up just throwing my hair up.  I frankened a polish using silver foil polish and some holographic glitter. It came out so cool!

I loved these nails! So blingy!!! Too bad the holographic glitter didn't photograph well. I call this one Disco Inferno.

My daughter took a picture of me applying some lipstick. I thought women were suppose to look hot when they applied lipstick? I must have missed getting that skill! HA!

And of course I had to do a picture in my daughter's favorite pose. She thinks I look so funny when I do this! HA!
I'm wearing a shirt from Wet Seal, but I got mine at Marshall's for $12.99 versus $19.99 at Wet Seal. I never go into Wet Seal, but I was there with my daughter who likes it and saw this there and I had already seen it at Marshall's and loved it, so I decided to go back and get it. I just cut the belt off that was on the shirt and used a belt I had bought at Express last year. The jeans are Pink Celebrity from Dillards and the shoes are Carlos by Carlos Santana. Love the idea of a casual party - but miss dressing up a little too. Oh well, it was a good time. 

On the plus side, I should have My Kind of Cool Aid next week. All 1100 bottles! 1100 bottles sounds like an insane amount to me. But at the same time, talk about making the collection a limited edition collection! Depending on how the colors sell will depend on if I have them remade. Then about mid January I should have the other two colors ready to go. They are running behind schedule which sucks. the goal was to have everything up and selling by Jan 1 at the latest. It looks like it won't be happening as soon as I wanted, but it is all coming together. I am expecting a package of my spring colors for approval this week. Which they were sent on Monday, so I am not sure why I haven't received them yet. Kind of bummed there. Receiving that would make me feel better even if for a minute. I hope they make it today. My contact said they look spot on to the colors I created. YAY! I sent JBrobs blue as we call it in our house, but I darkened it and greyed it a bit more. I think JBrobs will approve. Then I have my ultimate pink and my Cruisin' Nude. I created a "nude" color for the cruise I went on back in Sept and everyone loved it and said I had to make it part of the line, so Cruisin' Nude born. Ironically it isn't really a nude, but that is the name it became known as. Can't wait to share them with you all! Now to get started on Summer 2011 and Winter 2011. Amazing how far ahead you have to plan! If there is a color you are dying to see or anything, let me know and I can see about making it happen. After all this is for us!


  1. Well I am so sorry you are ill. Boo!! I do like that polish. Congrats on 1100 bottles and damn you are one hot mama. Geez.

  2. I'm sorry you're sick!! That stinks at this time of year. I can't wait to see the spring colors!

  3. I hope you feel better! Lovely polish and Yay for your 1100 bottles. Can't wait to see them.

    If you could it would be nice if you can come up with a polish that looks like Nfu Oh 51 but without the flakies maybe it would look like clarins 230. Work on it girl you can do it. Lol :D

  4. Oh Mama, what a time to be sick! ((hugs)) to you, and ((hugs)) to Juan as well (hi Juan!) as I know he will step up!

    I can't wait to see the new and improved Jbrob's Blue! I love you guys!

    Just think, in less than a month, you will get to see the fruits of your labor in ACTION! LMAO, as in on my fingers! Hehe

  5. So sorry you're sick! Hope you're feeling much better real soon.
    Congrats on being so close! The delay could be that there are a bazillion packages being shipped and delivered all over the place right rest up and they'll get there before you know it.
    I'm so excited for you!!!

  6. I totally agree with you. If you are sick stay at home!!!!

  7. Aw you guys are so kind. I went back to work today and actually started feeling better, then now tonight feeling a bit crappy. I didn't go to Juan's work party, so I guess that is good. Hoping I wake up tomorrow renewed and then maybe I can get a post up.
