Off topic

I needed a bit of a lift today, having had a hard day at work so I took myself off to the local drugstore for a quick retail break, where I know they carry NYX cosmetics (and for the most part only shadows) and I treated myself to a handful. I showed my purchases to a colleague who often exclaims that my makeup is amazing and she was suitably impressed, and I got even more excited to play with the colours! I ended up with six shadows: Africa - a vivid orange with shimmer/glitter, Burgundy Pearl - a maroony sort of purpley with shimmer, Asphalt - a rather rich golden colour not at all asphalty, Fahrenheit - a sumptuous copper, Kiwi - the exact green of the fruit's flesh, and Lime Juice - again, aptly named lime-green, almost electric lime colour! I will have to shoot these all to share (or attempt, thereof) the beauteousness. I'm just hoping that these all pop on my skin as much as they do in the pans!

On top of that, my 'haul' of China Glaze polish came in - seventeen bottles' worth! I was on the moon! Being as my hands are 'artist hands' and not at all in the state for showing off these polishes, I'll have to shoot the bottles at the very least for you. I only wear polish on my toes, and I'm just not that flexible to do and redo that many pedicures to show off!
I guess being a bit of a magpie, I'm attracted to all the shiny and all the colour. I must adorn myself with it along with my JOOLZ! Yup, had to get back to my raison d'etre, after all! And of course, I'm bad - I have a few pairs of earrings to alter for a colleague and just ran out of energy this evening...alas! I'm hoping that this week won't kick my butt so much (work is soooo busy!) so that I'll be able to actually get those sorted and have some playtime. Goodness knows I have far too many ideas to work on than time within which to work.
