It Matches

On Monday I went to a DBSA meeting and wore this shirt I decided to do a manicure that would match exactly to the shirt.  I used Essie Bikini So Teeny, using DRK-A plate and American Apparel 7th and Alameda to stamp the leopard pattern then stamped a flower on my ring and thumb as accents.  I really got a lot of compliments on it.  I think this summer I am going to challenge myself to wear patterns that match my clothes.  I have my spring wardrobe and I am now actively looking for bargains for fall.  I will tell you the one wardrobe item I just am addicted to is the HUE denim leggings.  I think I bought about seven pair all on sale of course but they are just so comfy.  I love them.  I think Nordstrom might have some on sale for like $12.00 you might want to try a pair or perhaps you have if you have maybe you can let the rest of us know what you think about them.  So, have fun with your manis this summer the colors are so pretty.  I am hearing through the grapevine that the color for fall is going to be hunter green.  I can’t wait to continue my shopping for fall.
So, it came out pretty cute.   I hope to do more of these.  Let me know if you like these kinds of posts.  I know I have some pretty exciting one coming up soon. 
Ciao bellas,

Kelly's Challenge Day 4 Favorite food

Today, we are supposed to recreate our favorite food.  Mine is chocolate cupcakes which is really stupid because I have not been able to eat one in over a year because a medication the doctor has me on has certain dietary restrictions, like no soy, no chocolate, no aged cheese the list goes on.  Then, I had my stupid gall bladder removed and here comes another list of dietary restrictions.  Red meat once a week.  I can have 2 chocolate chip cookies a week but I can't because I can't eat chocolate.  Then, let me just add that I am Jewish and there is a whole other list of dietary restrictions.  I might become anorexic not because I want to but because I can't eat anything I really like.  I allow myself one pastry a week.  Pastries are my favorite food.  It has been hard but I don't want to be sick so I stick to the diets and I think I have lost some weight which is ok except I gave my skinny clothes away.  Oh, well, I guess that just means I'll be spending more time at Macy's online and they do sell a lot of high end polishes so maybe it is a little blessing in disguise.  We shall see.   I don't think I can loose much weight because one of the medications has a steroid and forget about losing weight when you are taking a steroid.  You can starve yourself and you won't loose weight.   The little weight loss is probably from I am embarrassed to say this but stool softeners.  I got out of the hospital lost some weight started on those and of course lost some weight.  I guess I was just full of shit.  Literally.  So, here is my favorite food and the closest it might ever come to my hands in a long time.  I forgot there is one other food I love but I couldn't really draw it.  I do love sushi and I can have that was long as it doesn't have soy sauce.  My Rabbi knows of my situation and is lenient about being kosher but I am just so used to it it doesn't make a difference.  Like pork, I don't eat it never ate it as child growing up so it wasn't like I gave that up.  But oh, the Chocolate cupcakes I ate a lot of those. there are other things like carrot cake, yellow cake, and strawberry cake but nothing compares to a chocolate cupcake.

Ciao for now bellas,

Beatlemania----Strawberry Fields Forever.

China Glaze makes a beautiful color called Strawberry Fields and I thought I would just show that for my Beatlemania theme but I couldn't.  I remember when I was young and was dating my first husband his brother would always ask me what do you want to listen to and I always said Blue Album from the Beatles it second album.  The first song was Strawberry Fields Forever.  Finally after about two or three weeks the dummy realized I was asking him to hear the same album over and over.  (When I say album, I mean album, no CD's had even been invented and the music industry was slowly weeding out albums).  We ended up getting married and the first cassette I bought was the Beatles Blue Cassette.  I was so sad because I played that cassette so  much I ended up warping it.  It never came out on CD.  There was a red album with the earlier music and that was released but not the blue one.  So, I ended up buying most of the CD's that made up the blue CD, now it has been released.  Go figure.  But anyway, I still listen to the Beatles almost everyday and thought that the only good thing about the opening ceremonies of the Olymics was Paul McCartney singing "Hey, Jude".  What was kinda sad that there were people who could not sing part of the song.  Am I really that old.  My kids know the Beatles.  Who can't sing Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, hey jude?  How hard was that?  I was saddend, but oh well we can't all be the same.  So here is Strawberry Fields Forever.

 My stamped version of Strawberry Fields

My stamped version


My last stamped version.

To do the stamped look I used Deborah Lippman's Almost Paradise then Bundle monster plate
bm05 for the strawberry and my DRK-A plate for the green that  looks like the fields.  I purposely made it a little abstract because the song is and I think I got the right effect.
Which do you like better the plain China Glaze or the stamped version?
