from one Star Wars geek to another… Happy Star Wars Day!

for this mani i used Ulta3 Lily White and Black Satin

Originally i was going to do a full mani of Storm Troopers but i just couldn't get them to look the same and it drove me mental so i opted for just one sad trooper

went to uni today to register for second semester.. so glad everything's going smoothly. now all i need is a part time job and everything will be glorious! *fighting!*

Taste of Perth Date

Today the penis took me on a surprise date to Taste of Perth and it was absolutely AWESOME!

We got to Langley Park at around 1 because we got "Called to Duty" playing with a few old friends from the States, no lines, walked straight in bought some "Crowns" which were essentially just the money they used for the event and went on a food and wine tasting spree!

Events included cooking classes, cocktail mixing classes, live musicians and the endless tastings!

First stop… the Rekorderlig bar!

Wearing an OPI I Sing In Color and Hey Baby gradient with a In True Stefani Fashion accent plus some rhinestones i got from BornPrettyStore

With a drink in hand we ventured off to the numerous exhibitors and tasted cheeses, oils, breads, dips, and wines. Once we had the nibbles and seen what there was to offer.. we decided on..

Beef Cheeks with tomato chutney and saltbush from Greenhouse Perth

Pork Cutlets from Bistro Guillaume

Pork Cheek and Fresh Oysters from Print Hall Dining Room

(of course the oysters with hot sauce added were mine =P)

Rekorderlig was holding a promotion where if you bought 4 drinks, you get a free show bag that includes a bottle of cider and a Rekorderlig mug… GUESS WHO CHUGGED 2 bottles of cider each just to get a free mug.. because there was only a few minutes left before all alcohol was not going to be served anymore… AND I WANTED MY MUG!

Spoils of the day.. I think the lady found the penis and i hilarious trying to finish our drinks so she packed an extra probably because she felt sorry for us.. doing ridiculous things for the sake of a mug that you could probably buy for a few dollars at some shop that holds Rekorderlig. 
As for the pickled onions.. we had 5 "crowns" left and it was the most memorable "free tasting" we had so we grabbed a jar to take home. 

All in all a fantastic day, great weather, great foods and awesome company.

NYLON… nylon everywhere

Got my first Nylons from Living Dead Clothing today and i am highly excitable!

I ordered these babies last Monday and because of the Easter long weekend they didn't come until today BUT I AM SO EXCITABLE!!! --the penis isn't very happy about my sudden interest in nylons.. they're not exactly cheap in price.. and he's a little buggered about his CC bill xD

pictures to come soon..! ;)

--I've been working on preorders of new Smudged shades and i managed to sprain my shoulder or arm.. somehow.. guess i over did it with all the mixing and shaking. my whole right arm aches from my wrist all the way up to the back of my shoulder. I thought using a heat pack would alleviate the pain.. which it did with burning.. but then my skin mottled.. (masochism at its finest.. fighting pain with fire)

LET THIS BE A WARNING TO EVERYONE WHO USES MICORWAVABLE HEAT PACKS. DO NOT HAVE IT TOO HOT ON YOUR SKIN! This is what may happen to your skin! It actually looks a lot more awful than it feels.. i mean my ache is still there but the actual skin itself isn't in pain or anything.. it just looks awful. (hey there's a heart! a heat heart!)

carb hit

I had lunch with a friend today and she took me to Delisio Pizza Roma in the ENEX Food Court Perth CBD and it was GLORIOUS!

I had Squid Ink Spaghetti with Salmon and Broccoli and she had Fettucini Carbonara. My spaghetti was alienate and i prefer JUST over cooked but overall the flavour was delicious and such a giant bowl for a steal of $13!!!

After lunch she went back to work and i did my usual stroll around the city for the next 3 hours till the penis got off from work… can't say it was that exciting.. and i didn't find anything worth paying monies for.. so.. i guess it was my "workout" for the week!

Glorious dinner with the penis and his friends at Dae Jang Kum!

--of course i would choose for us to have Korean :P

Tteokbokki - Korean Spicy Rice Cakes and Fish Cakes

Bbudae Zzigae - Ramn with sausages, spam, tofu and beans

Samgyupsal - Pork Belly BBQ!

The atmosphere was really great.. although we were sweating bullets because of the hot coal they use for the BBQ, but overall it was a really great experience! The food is quite pricey, but it's worth every penny! I would definitely recommend this place to all Korean food enthusiasts!

The tteokbokki was nice.. but in honesty i've had better… It wasn't as spicy as i thought it would be, but it does have a kick to it.

Bbudae Zzigae delicious perfect for cold days!

Samgyupsal absolutely GLORIOUS!!! Highly recommend!

All main courses come with unlimited side dishes which were also delicious. Friendly staff, and just awesome all around!

it's monday again

i find myself getting really irritated and frustrated easily lately.. i can't tell if it's uni stress.. house renovations… or just.. life in general.. seems like the only thing i have control of are my nails..
at least.. the plumber is coming tomorrow to install the toilets and replace all the taps.. then the carpets are coming in right after.. so that's huge progress at least.. (on top of the fact that i've been looking at adoption places for a kitten or rabbit.. and the penis is starting to look for furniture.. which is highly excitable..)
i really can't wait to move out. yes there will be a lot of responsibilities that he and i will face that we probably haven't before.. but we all have to at some point.. and i'd much rather go through it with him.


people who play favourites shit me to no end.

the penis' mom… fucken.. asdfgh*
she has two sons!! how is it that she can pay more attention to one than the other?! and if you're going to do that why the fuck have more than one child for?!
we usually all have dinner separately.. the brother eats last cause he usually has his tit milk after the gym.. whatever.. but she legit brings food into his room for him.. =="
fine.. ok whatever.. but yesterday.. she was complaining to the husband that there was no meat left in the stew.. only vegetables.. and she was aggro because she thought the brother hadn't eaten yet.. little does she know the fucker was the first to eat.. worried that he hadn't had enough.. she cuts a slice of pie for him.. and brings it into his room for him.. i can't even..
at first i thought it was because she probably thinks since i'm there i can be the one to do it for him.. but it's always been like this. regardless of whether or not i was in the picture. whenever she has a chore she needs help with.. she only ever tells the penis to do it.. never the older brother.. which is so incredibly unfair! it makes me feel so sorry for him.. and worry he would feel.. unloved or neglected.. (this makes me worry a little about whether or not i want to be a parent..)

uni is the same.. i should actually be doing my assignment and reading my chapters right now.. but i really can't be bothered to right now.. it'll just go through one ear and out the other.. (must be the monday blues.. except.. i seem to get said blues every day of the week)

anyway.. my NOTD.. very uninspired.. and i'm kind of obsessed with this glitter topper at the moment.
for this mani i used China Glaze For Audrey and Under The Boardwalk for the gradient topped off with Smudged Polish Phrenology Freak

wore my mid rings to class today.. i didn't really get them in the beginning.. but they've definitely grown on me. i got these from Lovisa

Today the penis and i went to Oz Comic Con held at The Perth Convention Center.. and it was absolutely GLORIOUS!

i was going for the.. kpop F(x) look…

and the penis.. typical anime school boy.. both were severely poor and thrown together at the last minute compared to the many other cosplay people who attended

Poison Ivy

Sponge Bob!

Effie from The Hunger Games

Witch King of Angmar

Brook, Squall and… someone i don't know but was absolutely adorable

Assassins Creed who was giving out free hugs! (except it looks like the penis is grabbing his balls)


Emma Frost

i had absolutely no idea who she was dressed as but i thought she was so gorgeous and she had such a beautiful personality


and last but by no means least… Tuna Sushi! the penis bought her for me as a Oz Comic Con souvenir.

This was the first anime/comic convention i had ever been to and i absolutely loved it! i'm a little sad they didn't have much Harry Potter or Lord of The Ring things.. but it was a really great experience… now.. to plan a costume for the next event… teeheehee*

oh.. and before i forget… of course…

my NOTD.. Gradient using China Glaze Papaya Punch and Under The Boardwalk topped off with Smudged polish Phrenology Freak ;)
