A No-Brainer

Hello! The theme for this month’s #halloweenforever collab on Instagram was zombies and smoosh manicures. I’m reminded time and again how in my element I am in this group, and am left lamenting the fact that I only joined recently! I did this mani almost immediately upon finding out the theme because it was a… Continue reading A No-Brainer

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head…

…Just like the man whose feet are too big for his bed, nothing seems to fit… 🎶🎵 When I was a child of about five or six years, my father would sing this song to me. And for some reason unfathomable to him at the time, and later on, to me as well, it would… Continue reading Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head…

Free

Hello, there! So, remember my last post where I (naively, no doubt) made plans to get some weeding done and then do Fluid Friday nails, while Baby ACD enjoyed an activity-filled day at daycare? Yeah… Didn’t happen. This is how Thursday played out: Baby tossed and turned, wailed and screamed all night; consequently, I didn’t… Continue reading Free

I Want To Believe…

Hello, folks! I’m back with yet another mani. This is for the #halloweenforevercollab on Instagram. This is a monthly collaboration of Halloween nail art lovers and the theme this month was aliens.

Turquoise & Rust Skittlette

Hello, folks! Baby ACD has been having a rough week. Between a cold and stuffy nose, and cutting two new teeth, sleep has not been very restful. Needless to say, I have been grasping at every minute of sleep I can have. At the end of a week or so of this, I am quite… Continue reading Turquoise & Rust Skittlette

Pale Turquoise

Hello! You know those days when nothing seems to go right? I had one of those days yesterday. Among other things I struggled with was this rocking manicure inspired by pale turquoise. Apparently, pale-coloured turquoise is considered to be low-grade, but I do love how it looks and was inspired to do a mani based… Continue reading Pale Turquoise

(Neon?) Watercolour

Hello! Happy Monday to you all! We had a lovely weekend. On Saturday, we had some friends over for lunch and we munched on some delicious cheese, veggies and some freshly-baked bread. On Sunday, we had a relaxed family day, complete with some delectable icecream, and I finally organized my closet and got some cleaning… Continue reading (Neon?) Watercolour

Spaced Out

Hello! I’m in dire need of some quality sleep and am harbouring feelings of dislike and resentment towards my dissertation at the moment. At this point, I no longer care about quality and just want this behind me. Mr ACD had the day off on Friday, in addition to the Victoria Day holiday tomorrow (Monday),… Continue reading Spaced Out
