OPP & More

Hope every one's weekend is off to a great start. Ours definitely is! Well if you count waking up with the sun and cleaning out a closet a great start anyway! But the closet is now clean and the weekend can officially begin! WAHOO!

I wanted to give everyone a quick update as well. I spoke with our filling facility yesterday and our bottles should all be filled as I write this! I can't tell you the frustration level I have been feeling over this. Our polishes should have reached me on the 22nd of April and here it is the 30th and they aren't here yet. But because the bottle printing was delayed we didn't get filled when we were suppose to and had to get squeezed in. FRUSTRATED doesn't even begin to describe how I have been feeling! I have bottles pre-sold that need to get shipped out and the filling is taking forever! I should have all bottles sometime in the next week, but I am still beyond frustrated. Next weekend I am volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and will be busy building a home. (That's a whole other story! I can't wait for that! This home will be an all women built home! YAY!) Which means I will need to cut the nails all the way down as to avoid any issues and I really want the pictures with the new polish with my current nails. At this point, I don't know if it will be able to happen. Grrr! I am sure all you who ordered are feeling the frustration right along with me. 

Anyway on to some OPP. This is Butter London Yummy Mummy. I am a huge fan of nude and taupe polishes and have been wanting this one for a while. It is another one I scored at our blogger meetup. (Doesn't it just kill you that you weren't there! HA! Maybe the next one!) Anyway - this one definitely lived up to my expectations. I love everything about it. The color, the shimmer, the formula! I LOVED this one so much I wish I was the one that came up with it! HA! 

In the shade you can't really see the shimmer. I love when shimmer polishes look creme sometimes and shimmery other times!

In the sun, the shimmer comes to life!  


In other news, if you follow me on Twitter, you know that for Easter we made "Tie" dyed eggs. I posted a bunch of Instagram pictures. I went a little nutty. One because I had just downloaded Instagram just days before and was having fun with that and two because this was so friggin cool! We took some silk ties and cut them up and then wrapped eggs in them. From there we wrapped the eggs in muslin and then boiled them for 20 minutes in a pot of water with 3 tablespoons of vinegar. They looked so cute just wrapped in the muslin! 




Here is what we ended up with! Cool right?



I know - Easter was a week ago, but I came across these photos while I was uploading pictures and thought I would share anyway. :) Well I am off to the shower and then off to meet up with some family in town. Have a great weekend everyone!

  6. OMG those eggs are AWESOME!I totally need to try this out!

    Yummy Mummy looks fantastic on you. I don't do so well with those shades. You're lucky.

    I'm pretty excited for the new polishes to be listed so I can buy them, I was too broke to pre-order. But the anticipation just makes the result all the sweeter!
