Day 108: THAT IS NOT CORAL......



Another Urban Outfitters polish I picked up called "LOVE LETTER". 

DUFUQ.

The color is supposed to be "coral" (that's how it looks in the bottle) but when I put it on, my fingers look bright neon orange! I actually have a wallet that is more or less the same color (come to think of it, I should've taken a photo with that too....). I HATE WHEN BOTTLES LIE TO ME!
And here I thought I had found the perfect little coral colored nail polish since I don't own any dupes. Sad Loraemon is sad. It's like buying a box of chocolates only to find out it's "sugar free". I'd still eat it anyway, and in the same respect, I'll still use this polish. 

I am horrible at analogies. I hear it's part of my "charm"

GG.

Day 101: Let's talk about fake baby



Hey I missed my 100th photo a day yesterday. Damn I suck...

Actually, I can't believe it's been 100 days since I started this thing. I know I've skipped a lot of days after like, day 30 or something, but that's life. The important thing is, I'm still somewhat dedicated to it.

Today I'd like to talk about a handbag I got from ebay, as well as throwing in my two cents on replicas. Now, I know some of you (gurlz) seeing this might be thinking, "eew is that a knock off Bal???" but in my mind I'm like, "it's a cheap stylish bag mthrfckr...." I don't want to come off trashy to those of you who are sensitive about "replicas" and whatnot, but I just want you to know that this isn't a "replica", it's "inspired". 
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE. 
And yes, my post IS going to be about handbags. The male readers probably already left before even getting to this part, so I think I will progress with this post just as planned......

Day 98: What's on my coffee table?


I posted about my coffee table a little while back (here) but I wanted to show a little visual change. Since it's summer time, I'm all about those fun colors! Well, really I just keep getting new books and subscriptions to ELLE DECOR to put on my table, but it's all about the little things!

Day 97: Kate Spade: Things We Love

I've been eyeing this book like mad for the last couple of months. I've been trying to be mindful of my money these days since I'm still job hunting, but the designer in me got the best of me. Buy.com had a sale on this book for $20 + free shipping! I couldn't pass that up. (The book retails for $40, although Amazon has been selling them for $25) 
Three things lead me to love this book: For one, even if I could afford to blow hundreds of dollars on a designer bag, I'm very VERY picky about handbags. Like, I hate almost every bag from Louis Vuitton. I hate the monogram design on any kind of brands, but hey, that's just me. I think the only line of LV bags I like are their vernis leather bags, only because I really like patent leather. On the other hand, I almost always love Kate Spade's line of handbags each year. It's kind of rare for me to like a lot of things from one designer. Usually, I like one or two of a designer's style. And for me, it's not just about the 'look' of the bag, I'm OCD about the shapes and sizes and the small details. Anyway, TL;DR, I LOVE KATE SPADE. So there's reason 'one'. 
Reason two, I got a good sample of this book through other bloggers, and I knew I would love this book as a designer. Each chapter is color coordinated, and that to me already wins me over. 
Reason three is simple; bright pink coffee table book that's extra large. What's not for me to love?

Day 96: Frosted Sprinkle Galaxy



I suck at coming up with names for my manicures =X 
I wanted to experiment with my polishes more since I tend to just use one kind of color and be boring like that. I picked up a couple of glitter polishes from Urban Outfitters the other day and thought it would be fun to try some glitter looks. 

Base color: Lime Crime - Lavendairy 
Top color: Urban Outfitters - Chilly (glitter)
Tips: China Glaze - Lorelei's Tiara 
Top coat: Seche Vite 

Shoutout to Eileen for inspiring me to experiment with my polishes. :)

Day 95: LOVE CORAL!


Favorite color for the summer: Coral 

CORAL/PEACH/SALMON: It's a combination of light red and light pink and it's a subtle, fun, and fruity color! 

What's your favorite Summer color this year?

Day 89: Why can't Americans have cute packaging for common household things?

DAISO opened up in Koreatown a week ago or so. I was super excited because I loved the Daiso in San Fran and was hoping LA could have something like that too. Especially with Little Tokyo kinda dying out as being "authentic Japanese", I was sad there would only be less and less Japanese goods stores. But lo and behold, the amazeballs Daiso now exists in LA. 

FYI, Daiso is like a dollar store except everything is $1.50. 

Most of the things are just common household things you can probably find at Target or the dollar store, but if you know me, I'm a sucker for package design and Japan has probably some of the best package designs I've seen. Not only do they have great packaging for great products, they have great packaging for the cheap, simple things as well and I love that! 

My sweet haul of Daiso goods
Seriously....floor wipes....in cute hearts and pink packaging. This is why I love Japanese packaging.
This is a lint roller LOL ^

Day 84: The little macbook that could



A few days ago I was playing Aion, doing a quest, when suddenly my PC (desktop) just shut off without any notice. 'DUFUQ' right? I tried turning my computer back on but it wouldn't turn on and knew something was wrong. Le bf was afraid it was 'dead-dead' and that made me panic because pretty much all my photos and a lot of my work was on that computer. We took it to Computer Hospital (aka Fry's) and they took it in for a few days. I felt lost and alone without it for some reason, even though there are plenty of times where I'm completely without my PC.

I didn't necessarily care about my games, but I was just worried that something would happen to the hard drive and all my stuff would get wiped. I turned to my macbook for guidance and needless to say, rekindled my relationship with it once again. At some point in my life I only had my macbook and I used it for everything. These days I only use it when I'm on the bed, feeling extra lazy before bed.

Fry's called us back on Friday and told us that the power supply died. So now my desktop is running again and all is good. Now, the smart thing to do is grab an external hard drive or flash drive and SAVE ALL MY SHIT FROM THIS DESKTOP. But you know me, I don't ever learn my lessons.

No but seriously, I should save my stuff...........
