Sally Hansen & The Turquoise Sprite

Disaster! My "Fit & Flare" dress didn't fit or flare! I always have this problem; if I get something that is small enough to fit my waist it's way too tight over my boobs, if I buy it to fit my boobs the waist generally needs taking in about six inches and don't even get me started on my hips. This is one of the reasons I started making my own clothes, it's very frustrating not being able to buy things you love without having to factor in alteration costs too. There are a few things I'd attempt myself but if you tinker with the pattern too much they can end up looking nothing like the original which kind of defeats the point. I've already got my next few sewing projects planned.....I've got a hankering for a pair of high waisted black trousers.....all I have to do now is decide if I want a fitted cropped leg design or free flowing, ground grazing flared style.....hmmmm maybe I should attempt both?


In other news.....I decided about six months ago to ditch the acrylic nails (after seventeen years) and start growing my own which has been a long, painful process. There was no way I could have done it without this wonderful stuff....
.....and this......

.....they're amazing! I went through a painful few weeks of flimsy, weak, flakey nails but this stuff worked wonders and I now have strong, albeit short, nails. The short nails things is ok though as I have to have them like that for work, it makes chip cutting easier, although I do miss having long nails as I think it makes my hands look more feminine. Do you prefer your nails long or short?


And now for something very silly.......the lovely L posted this little quiz/name generator on Facebook the other day and it made me giggle to I thought I'd share it with you.....
