24 Things I am Thankful For

Happy Tofurky Day everyone!

I hope you all have a great day with your family and friends. I will be spending today with Brandon's family today. I thought I would take some time to share 24 things I am thankful for since it is my 24th Thanksgiving.

1. Brandon - He makes me feel more loved than anyone in the world and can make me smile when nothing else can. He treats me like a queen, even if I don't deserve it.
2. My Family - They don't know how much I love them and appreciate my time with them. I like still living at home because I would miss them so much if I ever left.'
3. My Cats - Mittens and Blade are my babies. I don't know how I make it one night away from them (like last night) I am sure they miss me just as much.
4. My home - people take for granted having a home. A roof over your head and a place to sleep isn't something everyone is fortunate enough to have.
5. My health - I am lucky that I am generally healthy most of the time!
6. Food - I am happy to have food to eat.
7. Friends - My closest friends are there for me when I need them and give me someone to talk to just for fun! They make me smile and laugh and I don't see them enough.
8. My Dogs - I love them!
9. Brandon's Dog, Harley - I am playing with him as I write this!
10. My Laptop - Okay I know that the things I am thankful for are getting sillier and less essential now but I use my laptop every day. I had a bulky desktop for so long I really appreciate this thing!
11. My Kindle - Yes my Amazon Kindle Ebook reader. I use this basically every day. I love to read a lot and it is so much lighter than most books and I don't have to fuss with keeping the book open no matter what position I am sitting or laying. Plus I can store enough books on it to be able to always have something to read. I love it!
12. My Jewelry - I love my jewelry. Even on days I am too lazy to wear makeup I often wear my jewelry. My standard pieces are my Troll Bracelet, a personalized ring from Brandon and a solid hematite ring. I am obsessed with earrings too though!
13. My followers - I am lucky to have people interested enough to read my blog!
14. Makeup - I love to play with makeup. It is fun and creative for me in a way that makes me feel good about myself.
15. Nail polish - I love doing my nails. Having a pretty color on my nails makes me feel nice.
16. Konad - Another way for me to be artistic! Konad is so much fun too!
17. The Internet - This should probably be higher on the list. The internet can be very useful for information, entertainment, making friends and staying in touch with people. One of my best friends I met on Myspace which ironically I barely use anymore. I am all about the Facebook now!
18. Author - I am thankful to people that still write books. I believe people should read more and without all the people writing out there I wouldn't have so much to choose from!
19. Music - I love to listen to music. It can lift my mood or help me vent when upset.
20. Scott MacIntyre - His music makes me happy and has a profound inspirational effect on me. Click here to check out his MySpace music page. He has a new holiday single available on iTunes!
21. Thift Stores - I love the things I can find in there and I is so eco-friendly. A simple way to recycle!
22. Nathan Runkle - The founder of an animal rights group called Mercy for Animals and my inspiration for going vegan. I would love to meet him someday.
23. My blog - I am thankful to have a place to share my thoughts, experience and interests through words and pictures.
24. Today - I am thankful to have this day to share with family and friends. Hope you all have a nice day!

If you have the money to spare consider adopting a turkey this year!

2 Year Anniversary!

November 15th was my 2 year anniversary with Brandon (my boyfriend). We went to Boston and had lunch at Grasshopper (it was buffet day!) My favorite thing I ate was this battered gluten covered in sauce. I believe it is "The No Name" on the menu. Then we came back to my house and rented a movie and snuggled up to watch it. We didn't get many pics in the restaurant because the lighting wasn't great and it was very overcast outside. We did get some pictures back here though!

One of my favorite pics from our anniversary


Me and Brandon with my gifts, Sookie Stackhouse Novels (first 7 books) and an Amazon giftcard. (for my ebooks for my Amazon Kindle (ebook reader)

Here is a picture of my lovely prizes from Zoya.


They are the Truth and Dare Collections and a Zoya Tshirt. It is only available from contests at this point. :) I feel so lucky!

I won these by making this video for YouTube:

Here is a mani I did earlier this week with a color NOT in the Truth or Dare Collections.

I used Zoya Shivon which is a pretty rosey, bronze type color that is hard to describe but very pretty! Plate numbers M13 and M36.

For Thriszha: Asian Inspired Mani

I did an Asian inspired look for our lovely thriszha of Fab Ur Nails. :)

I hope you like them. They don't follow any one particular Asian country's theme just a general "Asian" look.

I chose the colors warm golden/copper, red and black because they remind me of Asian decor. I used Konad image plate number M23 and Konad Stamping Polish in Black and Red. I did the black designs first then the red. (On my pinkies I did the red bird first) I used Konad Base and Topcoats. I used 2-3 coats of Zoya Penny.

I didn't take many pictures and didn't clean up because I have been sick for a while and still am and I am feeling lazy. Here is a picture. I hope you like them!

EDIT: Photobucket is being a butt. Picture as soon as possible!
Hope this Flickr version will work!

Pink With Skulls Nails

I was inspired by a shirt I recently got to create nails to do with it!

Here is the shirt:



And here are the nails!



The Thumb:



Plates used (all Konad Brand)
M13 Skull
M28 Spider
M45 Fishnet Tips
M25 Purple 4-petal Flowers

Color is Zoya - Lola and the decals are made by Fing'rs. :) I used the Konad Top Coat and the Black bled through to the top. Any tips for this problem?

Don't worry! I got the shirt BEFORE I started Wardrobe Re-fashion! :) I plan to post pictures of things I make and refashion soon. :) I hope you like my nails and the other things I share.

Wardrobe Re-Fashion Pledge

Photobucket

The idea is to not buy any new clothing. (I am not sure if jewelry or accessories count. I assume gifts don't count especially during the holidays. ) All items are to be thrifted, recycled, refashioned or handmade (etsy is allowed!)

I was a bit scared to do this but I figured I would give it a go. I have so many clothes already and since thrift store shopping IS allowed I decided to try it. I have very little if any sewing skill. Maybe this will inspire me to create more. I have so many things I could do something with in my wardrobe and maybe if I think creatively I can make some really cool things.

I am going to avoid buying jewelry and accessories during this time (except from thrift stores and received as gifts) I will however look for thrift store things that I can add to and take apart and redo. :) I need some supplies to make jewelry and for refashioning my wardrobe so I am assuming art supplies are A-OK since they help with handmaking and DIYing. I will post my projects here and on the Wardrobe Re-Fashion site and I encourage any of you who are crafty to give it a try. Let me know if you do. My pledge period ends Jan 1st, 2010. Wish me luck!

I was inspired by this lovely lady. Please check out her beautiful creations!

"Free" Mini Makeup Collection from E.L.F. with any order.

You can add any one item to your cart and just pay shipping and cost of that one item and get the Mini Makeup Collection for free.

The code is LOYAL. I just tried it and it works but I already have one so I am not going to order now LOL. It works even for just a 1 dollar item. If you do that the subtotal before tax is $7.95 in the USA. I don't know which other countries they ship to.

Also Target now carries E.L.F. products. :) Be sure to check them out if you live near a Target. :)

E.L.F. Also now has an "83 Piece Essential Makeup Collection" ($30) and a "141 Piece Master Makeup Collection" ($40) Needless to say I want the big one! I wonder if Target will have them before the holidays...? :)

Here is a video on Youtube about the different makeup collections! Enjoy!




COUPON CODE EGSTUDIOX still works for 50% off studio line items with orders of $15 or more before shipping. If you want the medium or large collection use that code! :)

I want it. I want it bad :-P
