High Tea & Mani

WordPress mobile version is giving me lots of hangups. I can’t upload more than 3 pics without it bricking on me. And the order I upload them apparently doesn’t matter ‘cuz WordPress app will do what it wants like a honey badger.   I guess I’ll start with this out of order picture! It’s my amazing high tea platter that I served this past Saturday for a good work friend. Complete menu details below! I got to use my fine china and the new serving patter my aunt gave me for Christmas. Domesticity score! Everything was finished at a record speed so I’m pretty sure it tasted good as well.
  I am so excited about my Monday mani. I used the nail wraps from my Target Beauty Box and they are out of this world gorgeous. They are a blue and green floral pattern on a pearl background with a metallic sheen. It is real nail polish with a top coat so you had to seal it in a airtight baggie if you can’t finish all 10 strips. The sizing is still not perfect since my nails and fingers apparently aren’t standard size/shape like everything else about my body :(. I joke with my bestie about moving to the land of the pygmies because I’m too small for this world…

Anyways…I had to trim and file the excess away but I think they mostly work pretty well. One strip covers 2 of my fingers! I also like that the floral pattern varies throughout each strip. The rest of my nails are done up with 3 coats of Essie’s To Buy or Not to Buy. Obviously, I bought it, lol. I find that Essie’s pastel colors need 3 coats in order to achieve the same opacity level as Orly’s or OPI’s one coat. I wish the price would reflect that too but alas. The packaging says these wraps will last for 14 days. I’m skeptical so we’ll see!   My new favorite teapot. And yes, I have multiple teapots in various sizes and density. This one pours the best and serves the most number of people at once. Don’t laugh at my awesome memo pad. It says: Shoe love is True love. Yes indeed. I just need to find the perfect pair of heels that fit me! I’m convinced that I’m the modern day Cinderella and I’m still waiting for some dude to bring me a pair of size 3.5 glass slippers.

Prices were AMAZING; nothing like Pittsburgh’s overpriced and substandard Moio’s :(. This one was mocha creme. Light, creamy, subtle and good in ma mouth.

Happy Lunar Year! 

First off, happy year of the monkey to everyone! Here are some fun facts:

People born in the Year of the Monkey are characterized as lively, quick-witted, curious, innovative and mischievous!

Years: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016

  My luck swerved this month and I won a little giveaway from a Facebook group! The Julep nail polish was sent to me completely free of charge via a very nice lady hosting the giveaway. It is the prettiest purple I have ever seen. It’s from their Bombshell line and this one’s called Paula (which does not do this color justice in my opinion! I would’ve renamed it Zazzi or Pizzazz!) The purple is so rich and so opaque that it’s leaning more towards a cornflower blue. The luster of gold in here wins for me.
  The hubs and I went to Squirrel Hill on Saturday to catch the Chinese New Year performance held at the Jewish Community Center. Ribbon and fan dancing, martial arts and even a Chinese yo yo show! It’s tough to participate in anything culturally Asian in Pittsburgh as it’s a predominantly white, Catholic, blue-collar city, so it’s such a treat to be able to attend something like this! We dined at Chengdu Gourmet and got our spicy on! Then a must-go trip to the Pink Box bakery to pick up Chinese style cheesecake, taro cake and mocha cake! Mmmm…Finished all within 5 minutes between the two of us.   And…a picture of Pangur Ban in her customary resting spot when the hubs isn’t in town to use his sink! She does this mainly when I’m brushing my teeth, or putting on makeup. I think Mimiboo likes to pretend to use the “his” sink when I’m using the “hers” sink :).

I really want to take advantage of this promo period going on for this awesome app Poshmark. I’ve cleared out so much of my closet and made $$ while also getting to buy some hard to find beauty items in others’ closets! I highly recommend it! Here’s the dealio: download the app, sign up with my referral code PTJPS to get a whole $10 credit from the app! You can search for literally anything and I’m sure someone’s selling it! For example, just search “headband” or “mascara” and there will be tons of listings! If you happen to find something for $5, shipping is $5 and then your order becomes absolutely FREE. After you place your first order (even if it’s free!), I get $10 in my account and there’s no limit to the referral! Please ask any questions you may have. It’s really that simple. Usually, the referral promo is only $5 but for a limited time, it’s $10, so I would like to generate some referrals! If you don’t want the app after your first order, just delete it! No big d.
