Date Night

This nail polish lasted all of 1.5 days, haha. I used Korean beauty brand SEP’s liquid nail sticker in this beautiful creamy orchid shade. It really is a sticker! The brush was good and thick, the application was smooth but once it dried completely, you could lift up the entire thing! I think the point is to try different shades all the time without having to use polish remover but…wish the flaps would not come up so quickly.

This book took me a really long time to finish. I hate that I didn’t fully enjoy this autobiographical account of a woman’s literary teaching experience in oppressive Iran but it wasn’t my fault! The author was too self-important and focused on her own analysis of literary books to appreciate the actual interesting events that were unfolding around her.

So sad about the closing of Teavana forever…but happy to be able to finally afford their perfectea makers! I also ordered 2 Japanese matte tea cups out of this Honolulu boutique! This is sweetened mango black tea brewing in there :). So good. Currently obsessed with Adagio teas and Harney and Sons as well.

Last night, the hubs and I ventured out on our own for a real date night–the first time since little daffodil was born! We saw this avant garde German-based opera and then hopped downtown to the Milkshake Factory! What a cute cute place! Prices were high and portions were small but the taste was excellent! Decor was very on point and the whole place was so clean! Loving it.

Behold my Stroopwaffle deluxe sundae with bananas, chocolate dipped stroopwaffle pieces, vanilla ice cream, gobs of caramel, whipped cream…mmm…

This is their regular raspberry milkshake and it is CREAMY and rich, you guys. The raspberry even tasted like the real fruit instead of the syrup.

My Chinese New Year outfit! We got major flooding this past week so hence my red slickers!

Daph Daph has been crazy with her constant flipping! She is even starting to push backwards. Coming soon–crawling! Oh, my sunshine biddy boo. Turning 6 months and growing up so fast!

Ending with my other baby boo, Pangur Ban, as she is featured her oh so majestically. The weather has been unexpectedly warm so she’s been enjoying the great outdoors this week! Photo credit to my sis, who is great at capturing the many moods of the regal Pangur beast.

Nail Stickers! 

  The polishes I’ve used are both from my Ipsy bags. The dark purple is a gel formula and the pretty lavender is from Trust Fund Beauty. I can’t really tell the difference between this gel formula and non-gel. It feels glossy going on but doesn’t dry any thicker or glossier than a regular polish. Guess I will judge after a few days if it chips or not. Check out the cute yellow flowers on my third finger! I bought a set of nail stickers last week and they are a success! Looking forward to easily decorate my nails without any free-handing!
  Mmmm…look at those yummy bowls of noodles! On our most recent date night, the hubs and I went to Noodlehead, a hip, cash-only Asian-fusion place in Shadyside. I got the Street Noodle tempura shrimp with the Hong Kong style thin egg noodles. Hubs got the Chang Mai Curry which was flat noodles in a thick coconut milk spicy sauce topped with sliced chicken and a nest of crispy egg noodles! We finished every drop. It’s not a lot of food for the price but it was definitely tasty. Look for Kathy D’s review on Yelp! http://www.yelp.com/biz/noodlehead-pittsburgh

 I like to end on a fluffy note! My cute little Pangur Ban loves enclosed spaces.
