Marc Jacobs nail polish review.

I am exhausted.  I barely have time to sleep.  The house is a monster . There's always something to fix or maintain. 

----

Here's a quick post on Marc Jacobs nail polishes. Despite the price tag, I've managed to collect a few bottles and my current favorite has gotta be Jezebel.  It's a red, ox blood kind of color.

What I love about his polishes is they just look expensive on the nails.  And the shine last for days. 

Chipping is minimal and i find myself admiring my own nails frequently.

I'm pretty bad at applying polish. Lol.

The Verdict


Remember a while back when I said I was gonna try to start a mini graphic design business?  

The verdict is in - I have crashed and burned.  

I'm like 99% sure I don't want a design business.  Freelancing? Yes. It's nice to be able to pick and choose work, or don't pick anything at all and just sit home and scratch my ass.  I like the freedom.  

-------------------

So that pretty much means I'm back to blogging. LOL.  I'm meeting up with my friend tomorrow to off load the majority of the work to her.  

I'm lucky that my bf doesn't push me to work hard.  As a matter of fact, he's happier when I clean the house, bake failed cheesecake, and make food for him instead of going to work.  

But I am going to work, we can't afford me to be a house wife yet - and we both know I need to work or I will get bored and cause problems for him.

I should take a hint.


I visited Chapters with one goal in mind: Crash course on online marketing. I've been given a bunch of marketing work and I feel like I'm in over my head.

1 hour later. I walked out with a bottle of golden balsamic vinegar and a recipe book on high tea snacks. 

I really should learn to read the signs. I don't think I like working very much.

Motivation


I'm getting soooo lazy these days.  I don't wanna do any freelance work. I just wanna veg out, watch t.v., cook, re-organize my make-up room, watch Netflix...etc.

It also doesn't help that bf PREFERS me this way. Apprently I'm much cuter and sweeter when I'm lazy.

Cooking


B & I have been eating out a lot lately due to being so busy.  But there's so much fat and sodium when you eat out.

Since we've been back from Portland, I'm determined to keep us healthy and out of the poor house.  B's been really happy with my cooking. I've definitely came a loooong way from boiled cabbage back in the day. hehehe.

Dinner over the long weekend: 


Chicken Breast Stuffed Spinach With Whole Wheat Pasta

Brocoli, Sausage, and Spinach Pasta

Chicken Udon with Ontama Egg





Insecurities


B took me to Aberdeen today and within less than 10 min, girls were checking him out and I'm reminded that my bf is cute.

I forget that bf is cute and if I continue to get fat and don't shave, I will loose my non-existence sex appeal.

B: I think a few girls stared at me
Bu: Really??? Noooooo *sob* you're mine!!
B: *grins*
Bu: *sniff* I bet they're all thinking how did she hooked up w/ him...
B: Why do you say that?
Bu: Cause you're cute and I look like shit half the time.  And those chicks are pretty!
B: Are they?
Bu: Why are you asking me?! You should know if they're pretty or not! *the fug...he's supposed to say they're not pretty*

ugh. How and when did I become so insecure? >.<

Review: Lancome Lip Lover


I was so excited to get my hands on these and I was sorely dissappointed when I finally played with them in Sephora.  For some reason, not many of the colors jumped out to me. They were mostly pinks and corals and were really sheer.  I literally stood at section for a good 20 min debating if I should get one. 

I was hoping the texture to be a balm stain but they're pretty much gloss with the consistency of honey.  

However, these are moisturizing! No need for a lip balm underneath.  The color I picked up was 353 - Rose Gracieuse. 

The best thing about this product is the packaging. It's the perfect length for a small clutch.  The little push button to release mechanism is easy to use and hygenic.  No gloss spilling out on the edge. (I haaaate it when that happens)


Packaging: Metallic with a push button to release the cap.

Texture: Sticky...kinda like honey.  Definitely glossy.

Fragrance: Mild floral scent.

Pigment: Sheer but can be build up with lots of shine.

Lasting power: Not that great >.< I found myself reapplying often.

Price: $29 Canadian

Recommendation: no....It's just a really moisturizing lip gloss and you don't need to pay $30 for it! 


Here are some photos:

The lip swatch is when I used my finger to sheer it out for a hint of color.  The full face one is when I piled it on.  Photos were taken in daylight (non filtered)
