a few small things

Thank god for thrifted oversized sweaters and birthday gifts, including an antique monocle made into a necklace (thanks sis!), and a new book of short stories that I'm currently burning through (thanks Wardell!).

I also just got a set of dotting tools from Amazon and created the masterpiece below, courtesy of quite possibly the best nail blog in the universe, The Daily Nail. If there ever was a Van Gough of nail art, it would be this lovely lady, who has painted everything from Legos to venn diagrams on her nails. Her prowess with nail polish fills me with a morbid jealousy, but thankfully a few of the designs are achievable by mere mortals, and this one was seriously easy! You can watch a tutorial for it here.

  1. I'm not a nail art fan but those are actually incredible.

    I've not been to the human bodies exhibit, where is that? I think I'd find it highly disturbing actually, considering I was forced on a school trip to an egyptian museum and saw a real mummy and also a mummified hand was passed around the study room. Bleurgh. I felt like I could smell it.
