Current Obsession...


This post is probably not what you were expecting... I should be posting my Mach faves or at least something a bit related to makeup or the like, but no. I am so obsessed with this song. I loved the original version, so I didn't think I'd be into the Birdy version when I first saw it on the track list. I was so wrong. Give it a listen.

NOTD: Avon Nailwear Pro Orange Creamsicle

You didn't think I'd given up my little blog did you? I took a mini sabbatical and some much needed me time. I'm back, refreshed, way less frazzled and ready and excited to review. Sometimes blogging can become a chore, and I've realized it shouldn't feel like something I'm obligated to do, but something I'm excited about and love to do. I spent a big part of my break with my nose stuck in a book, watched countless hours of  Third Rock from the Sun, and took myself on a date to see The Hunger Games. I've even started to embrace the colour orange. I've always been pretty much an equal opportunity type of gal in terms of colour, but orange was always on the lower end of my like list.

I can now say that I have a mini arsenal of orange beauty items (themed post perhaps?) and this polish started it all. I was expecting it to a bit milkier based on the name, but it's a fairly bright orange cream. I love how it is bright enough to be a bold pop of colour, but doesn't enter into neon territory. The application was great, two coats to a shiny finish. This is the perfect shade to kick start summer, especially if your weather has skipped spring-like and returned to winter-like like it has here. There was snow this afternoon... not full on snow storm, but still SNOW. Come on spring.... We miss you!
