hello domo!





Voila, my latest nail art creation! I've loved Domo-kun for a few years now and when I came across my stuffed toy whilst tidying my room I knew I had to draw him on my nails! I used Barry M 'Mushroom' and 'Bright Red' along with my Models Own nail art pens for the black and white. You have no idea how difficult it was trying to draw sharp triangles for the teeth!

It was payday yesterday so I took myself shopping first thing in the morning. I treated myself to quite a few new items and somehow managed to spend £55 in Primark. How is that even possible?! I can't wait to show you what I bought! By the time I was at the end of the first rail I had 6 dresses to try on. I also found a gorgeous dusky grey playsuit, got the only one from the rail in my size that wasn't ripped at the neck and then discovered whilst trying it on that the reason they were all ripped is because Primark clearly hadn't considered how to put it on and expected our backsides to fit through the small hole for your head, no chance!

I've spent this afternoon changing my blog layout around so if you're reading this post elsewhere then come on over and have a look. It was all grey before and looked really dull so I've added some colour and I've made the post area so that you can see my photos better. What do you think?

I'm going to spend the rest of the day playing Rollercoaster Tycoon sorting out my wardrobe and then this evening my friend's taking me out for dinner before going to see either The Mechanic or The Dilemma. There's not many good films (that I haven't already been to see) showing at the moment so I think these two look most promising. The Dilemma got a rubbish rating on Rotten Tomatoes but I thought the trailer made it look quite funny! Has anyone been to see either of them yet? Which one should I go see?

  3. Your nails - how fabulous and creative!!
    I haven't seen either films, but The Dilemma is tempting, I agree..I have also been to see the majority of the good films that are out, although February has some promising ones in store.
    Love the new layout flower!
    I must organise my wardrobe when I come home from my jollies - I go to Cuba on Friday!!

  5. Madame G - Thank you! :) x

    Tess - Thank you! It's all down to practice :) x

    Eda - Thank you! The Dilema does look tempting but I'm scared incase it's one of those films where all the funny parts are in the trailer and the rest of it is boring! Ohh, enjoy your holiday!! x

    Dan - I think I'm leaning towards seeing the Mechanic! x

    Carly - Thank you! The nail art pens make it a whole lot easier :) x

    Michelle - I'd love to do your nails! None of my friends/family let me do theirs, and if they do their nails are really short and all bitten :( Clean is what I was aiming for with the layout, thanks! x

    Katie - I don't know how I would survive without being able to wear nail polish to work! I suppose it makes the times when you can wear it more exciting though! x

    Rae - thank you! x

    Alex, haha awesome! These nails have been a big hit with boys! Usually all my male friends laugh at me and say I've got too much time on my hands... not today! ;) x
