Nails Flash!

Believe it or not, I actually got my pretty little nails on the China Glaze, Crackle polishes!  You would think these suckers are like gold because every time I went to Ulta in the past weeks, they were all sold out! I recently purchased the Broken Hearted Crackle polish and since then I have wanted to pair it with a bold fun color.  To my luck, OPI released the Pirates of the Caribbean, Stranger Tides mini set.  I paired the Crackle polish with the OPI Planks a Lot.  It's a fun polish look that is effortless.

Have you guys had a chance to try the Crackle collection?

Sunday's Best: Kitty Baths

I think I speak for all cat owners when I say, bath time is a pain in the ass.  In my case, it literally is a pain in the ass, since I always pull a muscle when quarreling with my stinky, furry baby.  It's sad, but true.

Yesterday, I gave Spotty a bath.  I have documented most of the bath time in photographs as it is very tragic and yet amusing for both Spotty and myself.

Bath time usually starts with me capturing Spotty and locking him in the bathroom while I prepare the tub for his highness. While I am busy getting things ready, Spotty desperately looks at the door knob, praying that it magically opens.  Next, Spotty is placed into lukewarm water, usually this is the time when sad mews escape his lips.  We exchange sad looks and he finally accepts his watery destiny.  It's bath time!

Typically, my cat behaves himself in the tub.  This is not to say, that he does not try to escape at every given opportunity.  He accepts the bath but is always looking to pounce away.  After he is shampooed and rinsed, Spotty is gently removed from the tub and delicately dried off.

I always attempt to dry him with the cool setting on my hair dryer, but Spotty prefers to do this step himself.
Spotty is sentimental, so he usually ignores me or gives me the stink eye for the rest of the day.  Yesterday, however he took his vengeance by taking a wet nap on top of my bed.  Thanks, Spotty....

Since it is pure torture for my cat, I typically bathe him a few times a year....unless he rolls around on something gross outside, then it happens more frequent! 

I hope you enjoyed the kitty bath adventure, see the below video for a hilariously tragic kitty bath.  The silent kitty scream, cracks me up every time.

Goodies in the Mail

I am so behind on blog posts!  Believe it or not, I celebrated my birthday in April and have yet to share details!  I promise to be caught up soon...

A few weeks ago, I sent April, my YT friend, a package in the mail because we have the same birthday month.  April was so sweet that she sent me some goodies in return. 

I enjoyed all the goodies, but I was very pleased with the lip products!  Lip product junkies can never have too many lippies!  Dare I say that I have two full drawers of lip products?   I know it's too much, but why can't I quit you, lippies?

The empty pump bottle that I received from April will come in handy for the summer (see bottom, purple mesh bag).  I plan to fill it up with sunscreen and keep it in my car so I can ensure my arms don't get toasted while driving.  One arm tans are not sexy.  Trust me. 

Naturally, I loved everything.  Thank you, April...a package was not necessary, but greatly appreciated either way!

Sunday's Best: Awesomely Bad Vanity Plates

Am I the only one that gets frustrated and really upset when I can't decrypt clever vanity plates?  So, I was driving around a few weeks ago and came upon

I could not believe my eyes.  Finally, something I could decrypt! (since there isn't much left to solve)  Thank you, van driver for your awesome HP reference, you made my day!
