Life Preserver

Billie wanted to pop in and say hello.

Currently, she's doing one of her favorite things - kneading the bed while cuddling next to my leg. She's purring like crazy!

I don't know why, but I've been into orange a lot lately. I've just purchases a couple of orange nail polishes, bought a top that is a burnt orange color, and fell in love with an orange skirt at the store. So weird that orange is taking over my life! Sadly, I will not be sporting an orange face of makeup. Orange toned blushes make me look ill and orange lips are never flattering on my skin tone. Meanwhile, I'll be content with this polish.

China Glaze's Life Preserver came out with the Anchors Away collection for spring 2011. I'm very late to the party on this. This is a beautiful shade - which, weirdly enough, was flattering on my cool skintone. This polish applied flawlessly and I didn't have any drying issues with it. I know I'll be wearing this one again.

I've cleaned out some old nail polish from my drawer tonight. It's depressing to see so many beautiful shades I've only worn once. I'm hoping I can donate some duplicates to friends and/or family. My mom is quite picky unfortunately, so she almost never benefits from these clean ups. 

My week is looking quite packed! I had the day off yesterday, after spending the night enjoying the Oscars with the boy. We both pledged to take the Monday off so that we could sleep in after the show. It was really nice and relaxing. I also traveled last weekend and went a little shopping madness campaign. It was really fun though, and had a great time with my family. I want to do it again... now! I can't remember the last time I had so much fun traveling!

I am now off to bed. Cheers my friends - next post will be a haul!


  1. This one is my positive orange surprise, I never wear orange nails and this one looked great, really nice shade. Your kitty is precious!

    1. I know right? I was totally surprised as well at how flattering this shade is! I will be re-wearing for sure!

      Thanks for the comment! <3
