Hello! I have had a pretty nice day today. A break away from work and all its horrors! I made my way to DFS and bought a sofa. I won’t get it for 3 months, but I have set the ball rolling for incoming sofa goodness! The local DFS isn’t very local and I had to get a taxi to the industrial park it is in. A taxi works out much cheaper than the bus, which says a lot for the public transport in this city. The industrial park has a massive M&S and Sainsburys so I spent the rest of my afternoon in there. I bought some goodies, which I’ll post when I’ve taken pictures- it was too dark when we got back.
It’s so nice to go to the big versions of stores, they are completely different to the smaller ones. My local M&S, for example. is rubbish. It has 3 floors of nothing. The clothes are bizarre and only for those over 90 and the food section is tiny and depressing. The M&S I went to today had clothes I could actually wear in it! The make-up section was about 10 times the size and they even had bras in my size! So, I had a little shopping splurge while I was there. :) My poor OH was left on the husband seat outside the changing rooms in the bra section, trying not to look creepy sat surrounded by bras. Poor guy.
I also raided the baby clothes in Sainsburys. My niece is having a baby boy soon and they had such cute little outfits! I bought a tiny little checkered shirt, so sweet! It was so nice going to a shop that had nice things in it. Sainsburys had some amazing deli counters, so I’ve stocked up on strange cheese and things for awhile :)
Anyhoo, I finally got around to doing my nails! I bought some OPI’s from Nikki’s Nails in a blog sale. I didn’t have any OPI’s and wanted to try some. I picked up Charged Up Cherry, Have a Tempura Tan-Trum and this one, which is Ruble For Your Thoughts. It is from the Russian collection and seemed an appropriate first choice to try because I’ve just started watching Babylon 5 again from the start. If you haven’t seen it, basically it’s a sci-fi shows about a space station and war. The second in command is an Russian woman called Ivanova, who is played by an American actress who makes no attempt at sounding Russian, but often tells people she is. This became a running joke with my friends to randomly announce yourself as Russian. Strange I know. I’m talking utter nonsense today, but basically awesome Russian themed woman=awesome Russian themed nail polish…on to the nails!
I am trying out GIANT pictures in my posts instead of the small pictures that you click to enlarge. I think I’d change my layout soon, as the width of my posts in restricted a bit. It’s always good to have a change anyway, unless I break the site again! :s
Here is my giant hand, trying to hold the bottle. The colour is a little washed out in this picture, the ones below show the true colour better.
These pictures show the real life colour. It’s hard to describe. It’s a reddy,pinky,coppery colour. I like it. I wasn’t too sure I would like it because the first coat was all streaky and horrible, but after two coats I really liked the colour. You can still see my nail line if I hold my hand to a light, so I could really have done with another coat. Alas, my quick drying top coat has gone all thick and yucky and I didn’t want to wait for another coat to dry. (Also, note my pretty floral dress background. I’m pretty much living in this dress atm! Spring is approaching, which means it’s dress time! ;) )
What do you think? Hope you are all having a lovely weekend! Also it’s the last few days to enter my giveaway, it ends on Monday! :)
