Happy frock shopping

OPI has even named them with fantastic names like "warm and Fozie" and "getting Piggy with it". Which I do admit will probably be the first to come home with me for a test in the next few weeks. As soon as I get them on my nails I will post some pics for you all so you can see how they look on.
So far I have only seen them in the normal size bottles but I am hoping to find some of the mini bottles so can I can give them to my fav gals for Christmas.

Personally I adore Halloween, hey any excuse to play dressups and eat candy. Honestly its not the only reason, but hey candy is candy. For me its a nice connection to All saints day and the festival of the dead. Yep that sounds depressing but I prefer to see it as a time when we can connected with the people that have passed.
Slowly Halloween is becoming a bigger event in Australia. If your in Melbourne its a great chance to go on one of the local ghost tours where you can really get your spook on. LOL
So dust of your broomsticks, grab your pointy hat and lets get magical.

Why you may ask is this retro AFL gal going to the soccer? Well to be honest it was because I was invited. However once you get there you do realize that the sport is much better to watch live than on TV. Not to mention the team I am going and supporting has also recently signed Harry Kewell to play.
So I thought I might show you a couple of snaps I got the other weekend while watching. I must admit there is something about having 40,000+ people holding their breath waiting for a team to score that can really pull you into the atmosphere.

To start with I picked up a little bottle of Maybelline Mini Colorama in 96 Party Blue. I figured it was time to try something a little brighter than normal and it works perfectly as it matches the Melbourne Victory team colors so I can be supportive even with polish. Also at a mini price $5.95 it was worth the risk. It actually came out really well with a nice crisp color that didn't look too strong against my pale skin.
So we'll see how long wearing it really is.

Hopefully by the photos you can see why. Its no secret I adore OPI polish, in fact I even have their app on my phone so I can browse their colors before heading out to the stores or salon. However when you see so many colors in one place its easy to feel your head swim with dizziness over this decision of which one you will pick.
Not to mention all the cool other products that I had never seen before. There were lotions, potions and ultra cute mini bottles of the latest collections. I was so tempted to say "give me one of everything" but thankfully sense kicked in LOL.
After so many years working in the retail world it takes a lot for me to go WOW with a company's fitout but OPI have managed to do it this time for me. So if you want some polish indulgence go and have a look at your local David Jones store to see. But be warned there are only so many polishes you can wear at once. Happy Shopping.

Its a great way to put yourself in the show as a cartoon version without actually having to leave the comfort of your lounge. So I thought I'd show you what I came up with. There are tones of outfits, settings and body types to choose from, so jump online and have a play.

Apart from all the beautiful blends I adore this place as there are always plenty of new teas to try and my personal weakness.....Teapots. Ok so you really only need one but when I place has this many to tempt you its hard to understand why one is enough.
Our main purpose was to pick up some Tisane's which are the perfect ice teas for this sunny daylight saving weather. We opted for the scrummy Turkish Apple and Turkish Cherry to be later enjoyed once home.

It is with great sadness that I write this post. Today I heard the sad news about Steve Jobs passing away. You may wonder why the passing away of a person I never knew has affected me. To put it simply I have been using Apple Mac’s since I was a little girl, with my very first computer being the Apple Mac Classic SE II as shown below.
So basically I would like to say thank you to Steve and all at apple and leave you with a quote that I adore from an old apple ad that still rings true to me.
”Here’s to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world
are the ones who do.”
