It's Getting Hot in Here!!

It's officially summer!

Nights are shorter. Days are longer. Summer is supposed to be fun. But not here, not for me. It's just too hot! Some days would go as hot as 45 degrees. So what do we do? We stay indoors, that's what. 

And if we get bored, we hit the malls or go to the beach when its not scorching hot. But of course, proper clothing should be considered. It's a good thing that we can get away with shorts and tank tops or short dresses just like these from Marc by Marc Jacobs.

And because I started browsing cool outfits, I was tempted to check out hand bags as well! I think this denim handbag is just right for summer, don't you think?

Check out more Marc Jacobs Handbags. Hmmmm, I think I'll be staying home and just browse cool stuff for now. =P

Unbelievable!!

The Victim: The Polish Police (and other bloggers too!)

The Culprit: AllGlam.com --- PHOTO THIEF!

The Case: Stolen Content. Read all about it in Pam's blog.

My Take: All Glam should be taken down. Not only they steal other people's photos, they also earn from them! THIEVES!! That's totally not fair. They took the photos, did some enhancements and added their own watermark. I actually have no words!

I'm sure a lot of you could understand where I'm coming from. Although I have not experienced having my photos  stolen I know how it feels to do the hard work. 

As far as I know, Pam's photos were removed from All Glam's site. And everything should be OK, right? But nooo!! They just had to post this:

The NERVE!! 

This just shows that the owner (s??) of this site only cares about the $$$ and the traffic that the site generates. I would definitely NOT support this kind of blogging. What are your thoughts on this?

I deliberately did not put links of All Glam's website because it will only give them more traffic.

OPI - Rising Star

Super late posting!

I've had this in my draft folders for quite some time now. This is part of the Burlesque Collection 2010.


Rising Star


It's copper. It's foil. It's metallic.


One thing is for sure... I missed OPI's pro wide brush!!

China Glaze : Crackle Metals

Crackles are so in right now! Most crackle top coats are cremes and now more finishes are coming out. For Summer 2011, China Glaze is releasing the Metals. Scrangie describes them as foil crackles.




I wonder if these will be released in the UAE. 

For swatches and reviews, check out Scrangie and Temptalia.

Lips!

I have a "lip" crush. Yes. I do. 
Blame it on the hormones but I have been drooling over swatches of NYX lip products. 

The culprit? Digital Traincase for the items, of course. 
And the lips... you just have to see for yourselves. 

Head over to The Pink Thought Bubble for the swatches.

My Stash: The Untried

I still have a handful of untried nail polishes and its just sitting there, gathering dust. Since the start of the year, I got no urge to paint my nails. Hormones, I guess.



A couple of pre-loved Revlon polishes.


My first bottles of Catrice polish - a gift from Thine.


A mini bottle of Estee Lauder polish.


Sally Hansen Extreme Wear. I've been wanting Mellow Yellow for the longest time. So when I saw this at a mall, I immediately bought them without thinking. I have actually swatched these but I can't seem to make it work on me. *sad*


A gift from Sol. From the OPI Burlesque Collection ... Rising Star and Take the Stage.


While rearranging my stuff, I found out that I have TWO Barry M polish with the same shade! And I don't even have the name for it.
