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!

New Year’s Eve Ramblings

Hello, folks! While perhaps a large majority of you are busy ushering in a new year in style, I am trying to put a gassy baby back to sleep and decided it was the perfect opportunity to write a last-minute wrap-up post to see off a wonderful year. In my last post, I said I… Continue reading New Year’s Eve Ramblings

Abstract Beads

Hiya, folks! Mr ACD had to work today, but we managed to go out for a very early sushi dinner. Baby ACD was a total champ and happily played through dinner. She’s very curious, and I’m loving how much she enjoys people-watching and looking around when we’re out. After we got home, I had an… Continue reading Abstract Beads

A Tonic Concoction

Hello, all! Now that Baby ACD has mastered crawling and moved on to attempting to stand on her own without support – often while pirouetting on her tiny toes – I’ve been hard-pressed to multitask during the day. And since all this brain development means she often does not sleep well at night and I… Continue reading A Tonic Concoction

Normal Is An Illusion

Hello, folks! It’s really beginning to feel like winter is not too far off – we had flurries for a couple of minutes tonight! I’ve been bundling up Baby ACD and taking her out on walks to get her used to the cold. This evening, we took her out to experience her first snowfall –… Continue reading Normal Is An Illusion

Springing Into Fall

Hello, folks! I have a lot of pent-up nail art energy right now and have been planning a bunch of Halloween manis that I will begin to do tonight (provided Baby ACD is on board with that plan!). So, I thought I’d share a couple of manis that I did in spring and get those… Continue reading Springing Into Fall

31DC2017Weekly 21: Inspired By A Colour

I knew I was going to use this polish for the colour inspiration prompt as soon as I placed my order several months ago — this is An Unexpected Journey by Glam Polish. This is one of those of shades I almost think of as a lack of colour; mind you, that’s not the same… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 21: Inspired By A Colour

31DC2017Weekly 20: Watermarble Skittlette

Watermarbles… I cannot complain that I have the worst experience with them, but I definitely lack experience. For a grand total of six or seven watermarble designs I’ve attempted in my life, I know only two patterns — stripes and random marble. So, this time, I wanted to try the classic watermarble petals because one… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 20: Watermarble Skittlette

NOTW: Roses Mani For Facebook Group

Roses and I have never quite gotten along. I’ve always thought they are a bit overrated. I think I’ve moved away from active dislike and towards indifference over the years, but I don’t usually gravitate towards rose patterns. Then came my Drk Nails Designer 1 plate, with a gorgeous image of wild roses and I… Continue reading NOTW: Roses Mani For Facebook Group

31DC2017Weekly 19: Annual Galaxy Nails

I really love galaxy nails, yet I never seem to think of doing them unless prompted by the dear 31DCWeekly each year! I decided to go super-sparkly today and used almost all holo polishes for a blingy mani 😀 The base polish is A-England Natasha’s Dance. I sponged on the galaxy using A-England Queen Of… Continue reading 31DC2017Weekly 19: Annual Galaxy Nails
