Sorry, I'm not having a lot of time to post lately - my bf's cousin is in town and staying with us for a week. She expects to be entertained. So I'm having to go out and actually do stuff instead of hauling and blogging and sitting on my ass inhaling polish fumes. Tough life.
So this morning I was killing time waiting for my boyfriend to come out of the Medi-Clinic (he hurt his knee while we were on this BRUTAL hike yesterday.... yes, I actually exercised :p I know, I know - pics or it didn't happen. See the end of this post :) Oh, oh, wait, before I say anything else, I want to mention that I wore Del Sol Rock Star on this hike, and had the direct, scorching hot sun on the damn stuff all freaking day and - nothing. It didn't change colour. I was so disappointed, since Ruby Slippers had worked so awesomely :( I SO wanted it to turn that gorgeous aqua green colour that I've seen in pics, but nope - nothing! And then it chipped badly while I was hiking :( So I just got pissed off and took it all off without taking a pic. Which I really should have done to prove that it didn't change at all :p Oh well - I'll probably give it another chance, and I'll show you then. But I mean, I'm not really surprised - Scrangie took down her reviews of Del Sol because a lot of people got "defective" bottles that don't change colour, but the company was hard to deal with when these people wanted refunds or replacements. Oh well. Lesson learned - not all Del Sol polishes are made equal. Buyer beware.
Anyway, where was I... oh yes, I was waiting for the boyfriend to get his knee looked at when I suddenly noticed/remembered that the Dr.'s Office that I have been going to since I was an infant has a drugstore just a few doors down from it. An ancient, ancient drugstore that had been there since before I was born and I haven't been in since I was about five, when my mom would occasionally bring me in for a fifty-cent can of Coke after my Dr.'s appointments. It's like, how can I not have gone in here by now? Especially with the frequency of my doctor's visits =/
Anyway, I'm building up to nothing here. I went in, looked around - they didn't have much. I did manage to find a couple of things, though...
Anyway, moving right along, I have some random polishes from the past couple of days to show you as well.
Ah yes, I wanted to mention this, as well - whenever I'm outside taking NOTD pics, my jealous, mouthy and possibly mentally disturbed cat is doing THIS on my window screen:
My poor screens :( But really, he's an indoor cat - it's not like I can keep him off the windowsills. I just don't want him to claw giant holes in my screen so that bugs fly in and I have to buy new ones :p So, I appease him by showing him what I'm doing, like this:
And I'll leave you with a picture of what I was rewarded with at the end of our long, brutal hike yesterday:
Wanna quickly hear what my week's like? Today we're going to the beach. Tomorrow I'm taking the bf's cousin shopping (ugh, but whatever - she'll have to put up with my polish stops, hehe), and tomorrow night we have to go to see the fireworks again ( doesn't sound like a big deal, but literally about half a million people show up to watch these things :p). Thursday we're packing and leaving for my friend's cabin four hours away, and then I'm gone till Monday. I'm so taking polish. I just haven't decided which ones yet :D But yeah, busy week. I'm going to want to shoot myself by the time I'm packing for the cabin.
I'll try to post, I really really promise I will. Try, that is.
