Meet Mochi

Hi guys! You've met Kava, so now it's time to meet my kitty-cat Mochi. Mochi is around 6 years old (I adopted her from the Humane Society in Vermont, and they were guessing her age), and she's just about the sweetest cat ever. She looks like a miniature Holstein Cow, and is a Bobtail (which is great because I never accidentally step on her tail).
Mochi loves helping me polish. Her 'help' usually involves getting fluff stuck to my nails.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box


Hi guys,

I just was browsing through my Bloglovin feed and stumbled across a spoiler post for the 2014 POPSUGAR Monthly Subscription Box for September.

In case you don't know, POPSUGAR produces a monthly subscription box full of wonderful new products. They include items in both full and deluxe sample sizes from many categories such as Jewelry, Beauty, Fitness, Home, and Fashion.

The September sneak peek was for POPSUGAR Must Have Fashion. It is a beautiful scarf by Tilo Scarves and is valued at $125! Here's a picture of it-

I'm super excited to get my box (and I'll post pictures when I do.) If you want one too, click the link under the picture above (how confusing did that sound?) and it will direct you to the sign-up page! The POPSUGAR Must Have Box is normally $39.99/month, but if you use the code MUSTHAVEYT, you can get your first box for $29.99!

Dior Electric Blue

I'm currently looking for a new job (anyone know of anything in AZ?), and it's taking up a lot of my time. My cuticles have suffered recently, so I thought that I'd get my blog back and running with some old swatch pictures that I dug up!

Here's Dior Electric Blue. It's part of the Anselm Reyle Collection. It was available for $23, but it is no longer in stock. However, there are some excellent alternatives such as Dior Sailor, and the old version of Sally Hansen Pacific Blue.

Electric Blue is a awesomely amazing bright creme polish. It has an excellent self-leveling formula, and goes on like butter. I used two coats for opacity. The Dior brush is large and flat, and because I have narrow nail beds, I could cover most of my nails in only one stroke.


Name- Dior Electric Blue
Finish- Creme (though slightly jelly-ish)
Coats for Opacity- 2
Original Price- $23.00 for 0.33oz
Current Price- $42.00 on ebay
Similar Alternative- Dior Sailor
Where to Buy- Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer can be purchased online and in high-end retail stores. I bought Electric Blue online directly from the Dior website. Electric Blue is no longer available for retail sale, but can be found on blog sales or on ebay.
