moons, flowers and raisins

My first attempt at the moon manicure. It wasn't as successful as the manicure that Deborah Lippman created for Lara Stone in February Vogue Paris, but then again, I'm not a professional. The orchid corsage was a gift from my manfriend to wear to the opening night of A Raisin in the Sun at the Guthrie (the ladies sitting in front of us were so excited that we were trying to bring the corsage back). This is the third production of this play that I've seen, and it was certainly my favorite. There were a few uneven moments, but the cast members gave moving performances and had believable chemistry. Excellent sound and lighting design, as well as a set that captured the mood of the time period and the emotion of the story. I wore a gold sequined dress and a black tuxedo jacket in honor of Cassie, accessorized with a tangle of necklaces and wavy frizzy hair.

Manfriend also gave me this gorgeous arrangement from Pazzobello (the same shop that created the corsage he gave me). He went in and described my style and personality to the florists and this was the result. My personality must really sparkle, because the arrangement is gorgeous. I know I'm gushing, but the florists at Pazzobello really do some amazing work. Also included in this shot: my Cardboard Safari Moose Trophy, way too many Marc Jacobs splashes, and my collection of Kenzo Ryokos.

And this is really just perfume porn.

YES! I love the term Manfriend. Dollhouse has at least given us one redeeming thing.

Good Content.

Today while I was surfing the Internet, I came across several interesting articles talking about UV nail lamps and how to use
them with gel nail application. I also happened to visit this site Gel-Nails and found amazing variety of pedicure kit which

I think is really cool. And what’s best above all is the super discount that you can get which is 50% and more also for most
of the products. I guess this is a great offer to grab as there is free global shipping also over a minimum purchase order. So if you are
looking out to save money after having spent on gel nails, then check out the great offers here. Maybe you may find much more than what you are looking for as I did.
