I Surfed, I Stumbled Saturday, Feb 27 2010 

Well, this is just a quick post to show you some of the things I have stumbled across online recently. The weird and the wonderful – truly!

Well, this made me cringe, but I thought the girl kind of deserved it. A guy used a Radio Station (Point) to end his relationship with his girlfriend after finding out she had been cheating on him. The twist was, the girlfriend had found the engagement ring he had bought her and thought he was going to propose – ouch! It’s not nice, and I’d never recommend anyone do this, but hey… kind of entertaining… Listen here.

Brilliant Old Spice Commercial… totally had me in fits of laughter!

Interesting article on nail salons and what some of them are doing unbeknownst to their customers. Apparently they have been refilling the designer brand polish with $2 Dollar Shop brands to cut costs… Totally evil, as the designer brands (such as O.P.I.) have been getting complaints. Plus, the customers are paying for quality and getting CRAP! Read the full article here.

Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us” clip, danced to by Prison inmates… Amazing. Watch it here.

Here is a blog for all of you Tila Tequila haters out there (or people who just want to see a social car wreck). This blog breaks down all of the crap Tila has spouted, and aligned it with the truth, other news reports and so on. Damn, this girl liiieeesss. Check out this blog here.

My latest fashion find, thanks to a work colleague, isย Shoes Of Prey. This is a website where you can design and buy your own pair of heels – Hot! It’s not cheap (approximately USD$350) but it’s brilliant fun to design your perfect shoes! And if you love them enough, you can buy them!

Here’s the new Robert Pattinson (of Twilight fame) video; an artsy, bizarre clip where he is surrounded by half naked women whilst the camera seems to be having an epileptic fit. Oh well, watch it here – he is still hot! ๐Ÿ˜‰

For cuteness factor alone, here is Dory Moments, an edited clip of all the best Dory scenes from the Pixar movie Finding Nemo. “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming swimming…”

I will end with something truly adorable! A news story on an elephant and her best friend, a dog. Watch it here. Will make you feel all warm inside (yeah yeah, I’m a sap!)

That’s enough of my time wasters, but I hope you found something to enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Getting Nailed Thursday, Dec 3 2009 

As a girl, I adore having pretty nails. There isn’t anything comparable to the feeling you get after you get your nails done, look down and see the perfection that is your hands.

Unfortunately, I’m one of those unko’s that can never do my own nails right. They end up with bubbles, brush marks, or overlap onto the surrounding skin. In other words, it looks like I got a five year old with ADHD to have a go. Actually… My nails would still probably look better if they did them than if I did! (Yes, I’m just that bad)

My other depressing nail fact is that I have very weak nails. I’ve taken vitamins and I use hand creme like its going out of fashion – but alas, they still break, flake and chip. So even when I do get my nails done by a professional, they only look good for about a day. If that.

What’s the happy ending to this oh so tragic tale? Acrylic and gel nails! They are absolutely brilliant. Acrylic nails are made from a powder, which is then turned into a paste an shaped directly onto the nail. You end up with perfect, near-unbreakable nails of any length, colour or design you could possibly conceive of (I have a penchant for the classy french tip,myself!). They are a teensy bit thick, especially in comparison to your own nails, but take no maintenance and look perfect for weeks on end. And when you need to get them touched up, the nails are trimmed and filed, and the gap thats grown out is filled.ย 

Gel nails are fairly similar, and look almost completely natural, although they aren’t nearly as strong as acrylic nails. But both leave your hands looking absolutely gorgeous! Do it, it’s so worth it, and its honestly not very expensive. And you can paint over them, just like your normal nails, so you aren’t stuck with one colour! Brilliant.ย
