It's The Crazy Life Week

This week absolutely exhausted me. We spent the majority of it at friends and away from home. While I love our friends, I don't do well with being away from home for very long.

It was so hot out I had to place ice cubes in my cats bowl, to keep the water cold.
 Our first little harvest of strawberries. They were so super yummy too :D

 After having my coupon binder stolen. My couponing community and friends got together and helped with this. I am so thankful to them all.

 It just keeps growing and growing. I love it :D I hope it never stops. The second year is supposed to be way better too.

 These are the green onion tests I was doing. The bottom plants have now died however.

 The beds downstairs. A bunny ate one of our pepper plants, but it's growing back beautifully. Everything else is doing really well also.
 I wish you could see all the flowers on the left hand tomatoe plants. I'm so happy they should produce well this year :D
 I made a strawberry sorbet/ice treat for us one day, and it was absolutely delicious.

 Three out of 4 of my new nail polishes from Julep Maven (if you wanna check out this mani pedi monthly subscription, click HERE) It's a mani pedi subscription that lets you choose different nail polishes and mani pedi product pkgs every month for only 19.99.

Lastly, This is what I have currently been working on for the wedding. The corsage straps for my mother and Aunty. A smokey coloured swarovski crystal centre and pearled white bead border.

Well That was my week. I will see you back here next weekend :D

The Ups and Downs of a Week

This week was quite a whirl wind. We were barely home :(

I worked in my studio reorganizing it, which lead to new product packaging half way through cleaning, Then we were in my home town making my bust form for my wedding dress, so I don't have to be home ALL the time while it's being made. Here's what we did LOL

I never got a picture of the finished piece LOL. But that was our Saturday. We also went into a neighboring town to do a bit of shopping as well.

This is Kiki, my folks new pup. She's absolutely precious, I love hanging out with her, and so does Matt. She sure loves him too. Lays on her back right beside him on the couch while he pets her belly.

I was in the city for the better part of the week so I didn't get any pictures of my plants and there progress, but I will update on Thursday with some pictures. Everything is growing so amazingly. We've already harvest a few of our strawberries and green onions. I now have a yogurt container completely full of green onion. I now need to find some good recipe's to use them up LOL. Our beefsteak plat now has flowers starting which look amazing :D.

So I'll see you again Thursday and show you how the rest of this week has went. Hopefully it will be a  lot more exciting LOL.

Review- Vinyl Nails From FolkChina on Ebay and Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish

While this is not my first attempt at playing with "vinyl nails" or foil wraps as there also known. This is the first time they have actually lasted all day long!

This is the set I chose. I bought them way back in the fall, just waiting for the right time.

While they are quite a "treat" to put on (to say the least) Once there, they're not that bad! I was able to go about my day as normal, and they pretty much did what my nail polish ALWAYS does... CHIP.. Only on the top edges and it's not really noticeable to anyone but my well trained (paranoid) eye, but that's a good thing. They lasted one whole day of wear including a cpl loads of hand washing dishes ( so basically submerged in water) as well as a shower and a long soak in the tub. THAT my friends is where things went bad. After soaking in the tub both my nail polish AND my vinyl nails literally just peeled right off. I had hard as nails top coat on them as well and it didn't matter. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED them (sorry I didn't get a picture) but really in general nail polish itself doesn't last to long on me with how much I do. Considering this fact I highly recommend Maybeline's new color show nail polish. I love the colours and the texture of the nail polish. As for the nail vinyls from Folk China on ebay. For 1 or 2 dollars you really can't go wrong. There fun designs that can give you a funky and cool accent nail like what I had, or a whole set of wicked awesomeness to hang out with for a while! Either way, even though neither lasted that long I highly recommend  both. Below I will have a link to Folk China AND Maybeline's new Color Show nail polish line.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish Colours  (You can find them at your local Walmart, there I believe 2.97 here in Ontario, Canada)
Sneeky me to boot here is a coupon for the Maybelline Color Show nail polish. HERE

P.s. The nail polish I used was Shocking Seas, as a nice complimentary to the purple in my nail foils. I also already own Chiffon Chic as well.
