I'm Just a Girl

OPI nail polish recently put out a line of colors inspired by Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Naturally, I already own two of the colors (because I am a sucker for themes).
***Urban Decay put out an Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows. You can buy it for me if you want. I won't mind.

Here are my nails - freshly coated with "Absolutely Alice":
(I just got that ring-it was on sale. I love it).

Here is a better photo:
I lifted that photo from -"a nail polish fanatic's resource" *my nails look a bit different because I used a colored undercoat.

It took me about two weeks to actually purchase this color. The first time I saw it at my local HEB, I picked it up and admired it for about five minutes. I put it down and told myself that I was too old for blue-sparkle nail polish. Every time I went back to HEB, I would repeat the same ritual. My inner child/rocker/pixie finally won the battle and the bottle was purchased. I painted my nails on Saturday and told myself that I would remove the color before I went back to work. Yeah, that didn't happen.

Oh look!
It's Charlie!
*the nail polish color I am wearing in this photo is also from OPI's Alice in Wonderland collection. It's called "Off With Her Red!"
What a sweet baby. As I type this, both Charlie and Cooper are snuggled up against me. I love those guys.

What else to say...........Oh, I bought a new dress:
It's called "The Socialite" and it was Francesca's pic of the week, last week. Spring is around the corner.I can't wait to wear it.

Oh, and you know what else? I am loosing weight. Two weeks into it I am 5lbs down and my pants are already fitting better. I'm using SparkPeople to track my calories/fat/carbs/etc. Before I started tracking what I ate, I knew that I was taking in too many calories but did not know by how much. DANG! I had to stop it with the apple fritter indulgence and the constant snacking. I used to go through those yummy quaker mini-delights like they were free. Now, I am amazed that the box I bought 3 weeks ago is still sitting in the pantry.

Now you are up to date with all things girly. Well, Charlie is not girly. He is a tuff guy.

I am pretty boring when it comes to polish, but I do like your sparkly blue nails. They are really pretty! Yay for new dresses and rings and losing weight. Now if you get some pretty new lipgloss, you'll be all set!

I just bought the Alice in Wonderland eyeshadow set. I am a weak, weak woman. A weak woman with fabulous make-up.

A woman after my own heart!

Roxanne (my best friend and blog partner in crime) owns Off With Her Red and Mad As A Hatter, both of which are ah-mazing.

I've convinced myself (being of brownish skin tint) that I cannot wear blue nail polish but Absolutely Alice looks delicious.

Uh oh... I think you've just enabled my nail polish buying habit. "/

After all, shouldn't one own all 4?

Obviously, I'm catching up on your blog since my comments are all outta chrono, but...I don't know what weight you're losing because I didn't think you had any extras. LOVE the polishes, might hafta steal them if I'm ever at your house. And now I'm REALLY curious as to why that comment was removed by a blog administrator. ????!
