Traditionally I hate this day, as I said in my last post. But my boyfriend makes it all okay ;) I spent the day combing through the mall, which was actually his idea :) after we met up with his mom and took her for brunch (because he always does something for his mom for Valentine's Day). Then I came home, where we watched Canada win its first gold medal on home soil :) on the very hill where I learned to ski when I was six (I got goosebumps), and we surfed on our laptops side-by-side on the couch (I know, we're dorks, we do this all the time) him on Full Tilt Poker and YouTube, and I on MUA :p And now, I'm typing this post while he makes me a full Valentine's Day dinner - grilled rib-eyes, bacon-wrapped scallops, mashed potaotes and gravy, coleslaw, and mixed green salad, with a 2007 California merlot of some kind (I know ballz about wine, except that I like it). I'm so spoiled. I'm the type of girl that makes girls like me hate Valentine's Day :p
So as I was combing the mall, I decided I hadn't been in Sephora in a long time (about two or three weeks - that's a long time) and ducked in.
Sephora is so bloody overpriced. I'm still not over the $7 I paid for the Blue Sapphire polish I got from there. That said, they have so much friggin cute stuff... :( I'm conflicted. I ended up caving and getting a couple of Sephora by OPI polishes:
I walked around the store, disppointed in the $OPI stock, itching to spend my money on something else. I didn't have to look far. Hello, what's this?
this article, mainly, among others. This is such a gorgeous purple shimmer with red and blue glitter. I can't wait to wear it. Now if only i could find Mash, or Zulu, god help me :p
Now, I got to go to bed, but some quick NOTDs for you first. What's Been On My Nails These Past Few Days:
And excuse the gross toe pic but I need to show it:
More TOTW (Tips of the Week):
Okay... it looks like I am at the end. I didn't do any more pinks this week? really? Oh well. I still don't have pink out of my system - it's such a pretty spring colour, especially in pastel - although I think I'm good on the reds for now :p So expect to see a bunch more pinks in the next few weeks still. Anyway. So finally, this was my V-Day mani:
Sophisticated? No! Tasteful? No! Tacky, overdone and juvenile? Hell yes - its's a V-DAY MANI! Muaaahahaha! But seriously, I like this. It's cute. I showed it to my boyfriend, and it even made him smile :) I'll see how long I can go before I take it off and change my polish again like an addict. The little hearts are so cute. I can't get enough of those heart polishes. I want the new Nicole one, and the blue one with the stars! So getting those this week :p
I need to go to bed now. Goodnight :)
