That’s Bugging Me!

Hello! I haven’t been very motivated to post lately or be on social media very much. This lack of sunshine is really getting to me now. I think vacation and home combined, we’ve had about 3 days of sunshine since November! It’s gloomy and sad outside, so that’s how we’re feeling on the inside too.… Continue reading That’s Bugging Me!

Cross A Line

Hello, folks! It’s chilly where I am at the moment, and even though a temperature of 14°C (57F) seems practically tropical compared to what we left behind in Ottawa – a balmy -27°C (-16F) – we are not equipped with heaters or insulation here and can really feel the chill! So, here’s a fall plaid… Continue reading Cross A Line

A Plaid Kick

Hello, folks! I’ve really been on a plaid kick and did a bunch of plaid manis back to back. I recently found out there’s a matte mani collaboration on Instagram, and given how much I love matte, how could I refrain from joining? The theme for November was recreation of a friend’s mani (in fall… Continue reading A Plaid Kick

Lest We Forget

Hello, folks! Four days in a row? That’s a blogging first for me! I’m back today with a mani for Remembrance Day. It is also the prompt du jour for the #clairestelle8challenge on Instagram. This is the third, and hopefully last, mani that I had a lot of trouble photographing and later realized that my… Continue reading Lest We Forget

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

A Single Man

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possesion of a large fortune, must be in want of wife…” Remember, last week when I posted my Valentine’s manicure, I said I was wearing something on my nails that totally had me guffawing? Unfortunately, I was not able to take pictures in my… Continue reading A Single Man

Paisley Blues

Good morning, folks! I have another manicure today. I had an hour to play last night and decided to do this on my left hand only, with every intention of taking it off soon afterwards (I often derive more pleasure from the act of doing nail art rather than wearing it). However, I’m totally in… Continue reading Paisley Blues

Textured Chevron

Hello, folks! Don’t you just love how original the title of this post is??? Yes, it is reflective of just how brain-dead I am right now! It’s been a tough couple of days, but today takes the cake – which is ironic, since it’s my birthday today (chuckle… am I losing it?). Baby ACD has… Continue reading Textured Chevron

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

Movember Mani Challenge

Hiya! I have a quick manicure to share with you before I hit the sack. I did this for a Movember challenge. On my index and middle fingers, I’m wearing one coat of Cirque Colors Urbanized. I double-stamped over it with a tweed pattern and Sinful Colors Snow Me White and then Bundle Monster (Maniology)… Continue reading Movember Mani Challenge
