I want you all to think of me tomorrow and pray for my safety. I have sixteen 8 year olds coming over for a party. Need I say anymore!
I'm going to the supermarket to finish off my food shopping and stock up on my wine supply! I won't be drinking when the children are here of course...... I mean I have to be responsible after all, but boy will I be tucking into that wine after the party!!!!!
Oh the things we do for our children!
Hi everyone! I'm about to pop into town in a mo to pick up some Halloween stuff (one of my fave times of year!) The problem I have is that we have a small department store that stocks nail polishes from Nails inc to Jessica to Butter. I will be going in there to have a look BUT my husband has put me on a strict NO BUY until the end of October. Which sucks! However, if I show a bit of cleavage I might be able to change his mind! But then again we have been married for 10 years and is probably bored of my boobs! But then he is a man!
Shall report back later!
Right where's my wonderbra!
One of my favourite polish brands is Barry M. I love the colours that they come up with. It's a lovely polish and most of the time the formula is one that is easy to use and gives a smooth application. What I like about this polish as well is that it lasts. I can go quite some time without it chipping. Plus Barry M is on the cheaper end of the polish scale which is a bonus!! This polish is Vivid Purple (3 coats) which I have had for a while but is an old favourite. Of course, the camera lies! Although there are red tones in this polish it is quite deep.
This is the first review of Most Haunted Live Halloween 2009
If you're not familiar with Most Haunted it's a show in the UK where a team investigate haunted locations ... a bit like TAPS I guess. However, all the team get involved, from the camera man to the sound man to the make up artist. It's a great show and the team start to feel like members of your own family. I've been watching it since it first started, I think it was 2000 or 2001 (Please correct me if I'm wrong ... I really can't remember!!!). Every so often the Most Haunted team do a live show. Some nights nothing happens but then other times there are incidences that occur which really have no explanation. Love it! So here's the first night review.
Morecambe Winter Gardens
After introductions, the Most Haunted team started off with a seance in front of a large audience. Yvette then walked around the theatre with a psychic. All the way through people were reporting the sound of whispers and whistling but no one could confirm who or what it was. This is difficult to draw any conclusion from as the theatre was filled with people so noise is inevitable. Yvette and the psychic reached the balcony area of the theatre. The psychic explained that there was a gentleman figure up there who used to work in the theatre but had an alcohol problem. Quite a number of people reported the smell of alcohol in a particular area. As they were talking one member of the audience reported that her throat had gone tight and her heart was beating rapidly. Yvette asked her if she wanted to go out to get some water and helped her out of her row. The audience member then passed out. Of course, it is hard to say if it was paranormal activity. The audience member could have been coming down with an illness or it could have just been all the excitement proving to be too much. Who knows!
There was an incident where Yvette opened a door and a gust of wind pushed the door which subsequently slammed shut. It had been confirmed by the crew that the weather conditions outside were pretty poor and that it was extremely windy outside. However, I can't help but wonder if wind can cause a suction and make the door slam? At the end of the show the team did a ouija board and a few of the team reported on feeling unwell. Keiran O'Keefe (the parapsychologist) confirmed that there was a infra-sound in that particular spot. Once someone came out of that area they felt better.
Anyway it was a pretty quiet evening considering the many other incidences the team have encountered in the past. I'm sure it will get even more spooky as the nights go on!
The clip below shows the end of the show where Kieran O'Keefe (the parapsychologist) and Karl (the producer) discuss what has occurred during the investigation. At the end, highlights of the investigation are shown.
Whilst getting some spooky ideas, I decided to do this Konad. It's very simple but I think it's very effective. This is a fab Halloween Konad.
Before I take a nail colour off I always like to mess around with some nail art. I find that I come up with some good ideas and colour schemes when I'm just messing around. So before I took off Zoya's "Ki" I got my neon pink nail pen out and did this spiderweb. It's not the best spiderweb I've ever done but I still think it looks pretty fab. It's certainly a twist on this Halloween favourite!
I've had a pretty rubbish week this week. I feel absolutely exhausted. Plus the weather here has been cold and damp which doesn't help. So I was looking through some photos of our summer holiday and found one that made me feel a little better and I wanted to share it with you. Looking at it, I felt like I was right there in the warmth! This was taken on a beach in Portugal and it was HOT!!!
If you're feeling a bit under the weather then I hope this makes you feel better.
I have a problem! I could be sat watching the TV, doing my nails and I will look down to see how my polish is drying when I notice ..... cat hair in my polish!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrr! I love my kitties but their fluff gets everywhere! It's not their fault. I mean they can't help it ... they're just so bloomin' cute!!
Are you a fan of Most Haunted?
I am in lurrrrrrrrrrrve!!! I cannot stop looking at my nails right now! Don't you just love finding a polish that makes you feel like this? I long for those days when you find a polish so unique and fabulous that it changes the way you feel. I bought Nfu Oh 52 last week and finally got round to putting it on last night. I didn't take that much notice of it at first (shame on me) because I was running around so much trying to get ready for rehearsals (Oh did I mention I'm in a play? I'll tell you more in a mo). Well, anyhoo when I got to rehearsals I noticed this amazing sparkle coming from my nails. Guess what it was?! Yes it was my Nfu Oh (My God!) no. 52. I'm nick-naming it Distraction!!! I could not stop looking at my nails all last night and all of today. But do you know what sucks? I could not, for the life of me, get a good piccie of this

I recently received my Nubar haul and I finally got around to putting Nubar's Prevail on. It's a beautiful plum matte. I put two coats on a found that this was enough to achieve a really nice finish. This is a gorgeous Autumn colour.
So I was just about to take my polish off to do another mani when I decided to do a quick Konad. This was using IP no. M9.
Pretty cute ; )

So Abi and I have returned from our mani/pedi session and I must say that I am impressed. In all honestly I am somewhat dubious about the nail bars that appear from overnight! However, I have heard nothing about good things about the salon I went to today. They were absolutely brilliant with both me and Abi. Their hygiene standards are also up to my standards as well (which is extremely super high!!!!) So I sat in the vibrating massage chair whilst I had my mani and pedi and Abi had nail art done on her nails. We had a blast! I will definitely be going back to that salon. If you are in the Windsor (UK) area go and check out New York Nails Fashion on St. Leonards Road. I highly recommend them.
