'Colour So Hot It Berns'; 'Foxy';
By OPI and China Glaze

A few weeks ago, my manager mentioned that at our store’s Burnaby location another girl was going to the same university as me in September. Different program, but still, another Vancouver girl at the same school.
She gave her my number and, after some semi-awkward texting, I bit the bullet and invited her out for coffee.
A blind friend date, if you will.

I’m the type of person that either I click with you, or I have absolutely no idea how to talk to you. So this meet-up could have potentially been one of my worst ideas ever.
Luckily it was not.
She was super cool and really chill. We’re actually staying in the same building next year too, so I’ll at least know someone.

Anyway, for the outfit I went all out hipster; I need practice for Toronto.

Not the best picture, but I thought it looked cool.
Nails Of The Day are a combination of ‘Colour So Hot It Berns’ by OPI, and ‘Foxy’ by China Glaze on the ring fingers.
It’s an OK look, not as cool as my last one. They’re both good colours though; I wasn’t blown away by either, but I’m glad to have them in my collection and I’ll defiantly wear them both often.

What are you thinking of the Fall nail polish collections? Love or hate? Or just like them OK?

OOTD; Couldn't Pick A Favourite 'Arrested Deveolpement' Quote

'Waters Edge'; 'You Don't Know Jacques';
By L'Oreal Paris and OPI

I hate my hair right now, thus my hipster fedora, which I bought two years ago at the height of the fedora phase.

This was taken last week after I went to get sushi with a friend.
She goes to Emily Carr, and was wearing a bright blue pencil skirt, so together we were quite the pair. Then we went back to my house and discussed life and nail polish, then watched two episodes of Arrested Development, which she’d never watched before. Needless to say she’s downloading all three seasons now.

I’ve started mixing gold and silver together lately; the middle necklace, the jade eye, was my stand by forever. My mom gave it to me one Valentine’s Day and I believe it brings me luck and love.
But now I mostly wear my Pyrrha seals, which are silver. Dilemma.

When I was in New York I bought the clock charm at Topshop, hoping I could pair it with my jade eye.
I’ve always been a ‘don’t mix your metals’ type of person, but that’s a bit outdated, isn’t it? I mean, I would never waer an earring and necklace set together, why hold on to another old jewellery rule?

Anyway, I like how those three necklaces look together.
It’s time to start getting crazy.

I really love the nails I had that week. It’s ‘Waters Edge’ by L’Oreal Paris, and ‘You Don’t Know Jacques’ by OPI.
I decided not to do alternating, but two and two fingers. My mom hated it, but I think it looked really cool and modern.

Getting my hair cut tomorrow! I’m so nervous. I know that’s a stupid thing to be nervous about, but I freak out every time I get my hair cut.
I’m too lame.

NOTD; "I'm afraid I just blue myself."

'What's With The Cattitude?'; 'Catch Me In Your Net';
Both by OPI

‘Arrested Development’, anyone?

Sorry for the awful photos; lots of work and limited sunlight equals shaky camera handling.
Basically, I painted one hand ‘What’s With The Cattitude?’ and the other ‘Catch Me In Your Net’. I thought it looked cool; my mom grimaced when she saw it and my sister told me I looked stupid.

But I think this could be my new thing.

I am probably going to buy a few polishes from China Glaze’s Vintage Vixen and OPI’s Swiss collections respectively. I mean, I will if they’re out yet in Canada.
And by a few I mean probably eight or nine in total.
