Papoy!

Hello, folks! We’re halfway across the world right now, visiting family, and we’re all so jetlagged! Baby ACD was an absolute champ during our long flight here. The last leg of the journey was a bit frustrating, as she kept waking up and crying and I was already exhausted beyond measure, but all in all,… Continue reading Papoy!

Somewhere It’s Spring!

Good afternoon, folks! We’re buried under about a foot and a half of snow here! It’s been snowing for days, and pretty much all day yesterday we had snowfall alongside strong gusts which means a lot of snow blowing around. Mr ACD spent a good thirty minutes in -25°C chills to clear the walkway (while… Continue reading Somewhere It’s Spring!

31DC2017Weekly 18: V-Moons Inspired By Bath & Body Works

The prompt for the 31DC this week is half-moons, and I decided to go with v-moons — triangular-shaped half-moons. I picked up a tube of body cream from Bath & Body Works last weekend, and this nail art was inspired by the design on the tube. The base is three coats of ILNP Clever Girl,… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 18: V-Moons Inspired By Bath & Body Works

31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room

It’s Week 6 of the 31DC2017Weekly, and I will admit I’m a little glad that I can now stop doing white middle & ring fingers! No one asked me to, true, but I noticed that was what I had done for three consecutive weeks and decided to continue until the end of the colour prompts.… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 6: The Purple Elephants In The Room

Hello, and welcome back to yet another week of the 31DC2017Weekly!

ABC Challenge: Y is for Yellow

The ABC Challenge is almost at an end, as is the year, and this is the second-to-last entry. For the letter Y, I’ve decided to go with yellow. I almost never end up wearing yellow on my nails, although I rather like the colour, and have decided that needs to change. I have a couple… Continue reading ABC Challenge: Y is for Yellow
