April #NailAnarchy Challenge Post – this vs that

April #NailAnarchy Challenge Post – this vs that

~~~ So this month was versus or opposites .. I had MILLIONS of ideas… most of which were too ambitious for me. I did try though by making decals but after a few attempts,  I was still not able to get a decal to behave as it seems to wrinkle when I topcoat it.  I shall keep trying. After a while I simplified my task when this idea came to me while munching on fruit. This is what I went with:  Oranges VS Apples Tutty Fruity baby! Polish I Used:- Essence – Holo Jewels CHiC – Tapuz 312 Tip Top  – Jitterbug Lime Seche Vite (Topcoat) NailCandi – Manicure Sealer + UV Light (for le Fimo) Also used FIMO fruit which my husband expertly sliced for me (I am not allowed near super glues and Sharp Objects) . Now that you have seen an amateur...

Pocket Geeks …

Pocket Geeks …

~~~ Are Geeks truly valued or just convenient? I saw someone mention the other day on social media that the best way to set up a beautiful blog/website is to invite over a techie friend for coffee and get them to set it up for you. This offended me Do you invite friends over for coffee to wash your dirty car instead of going to a carwash? Or for that matter, would you scan your friendlist in search of dentists and ask them over ‘to take a look’ in the midst of tea? No, of course not! That would be insulting, Right? I have no issue helping out my friends, at all. In fact I am always very keen to help and normally offer before they ask. Mostly because, I love what I do but most importantly,  love helping others. The thing is – I honestly believe...

Explaining Nice…

Explaining Nice…

~~~ Last night was such a proud mommy moment for me. Parents evening is mostly such a drag of musical chairs and queues followed by confused educator trying to remember who your kid is. I understand.. there are so many of them and there is you don’t really want your kid to be obvious as those are normally the troublemakers.   Last night, as we went from educator to educator, I was so proud of my pumpkin that I almost squished him in front of everyone. (He would kill me, by the way) His grades are average, some above average but the general feedback is: “What an amazingly pleasant young man” “Pleasure to teach” “One of the Top Ten students in the school with regards to manners” “Friendly, polite and well...

Bad Bite…

Bad Bite…

~~~ My poor pumpkin is so so sick. He is in bed with a high temp and feeling just so damn yucky. The Doc is not sure what it is but suspects Malaria.  Blood tests came back inconclusive so we have started him on Malaria tabs just in case. And I feel bad. I kept laughing at him on Monday as he kept going on and on about the Illuminati and how they sent mosquitos to Mozambique to get him because he knows too much. It was funny.. It is not so funny anymore. Damn stupid things that cause moms so much worry and stress. I have declared a moratorium that there will be no leaving the momma nest for the next twenty years.. because THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS!! Ehem Keep well everyone, and give your pumpkins many snuggies and tickles.. they are our snuggle monkeys after...
