Awww! Too cute not to share!

Somehow I came across this! I was looking at stuff on and thought these pictures had quite a touching story to them.
The story was that there was an accident causing the poor tiger to loose ALL of her cubs :'(
Zoologist even classified the tiger as being 'clinically depressed'.

The same zoo had lost a pig, leaving all her little piglets with no mother.

I guess you can see what had happened :P
It's so cute how the tiger accepted the little piglets as her own!!! So so adorable!!!

NOTD: Watermelon!

Just wanted to share my new nail design :)
I was looking at NaiLz-iN-AuS's nail art and loved her "watermelon" nail design so so much, I had to try it myself!!! It looked so cute on her nail! But I think that watermelon nails are so much cuter! Thanks so much NaiLz-iN-AuS for the inspiration!
Here are some pics of how it turned out...

I painted all of my nails with the pink nail polish first. Added light green nail polish to only the tips of the nails. NaiLz-iN-AuS used white but I just wanted to try light green and see how it turns out :P Then, I added another darker green nail polish to the very tips leaving only a little bit of the light green to show.
I used my Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen again to draw the "watermelon seeds" and decorated it with white so it can stand out a little more...
I loved the design so much I even painted my toes to look like watermelon slices!!! :P

What do you think? :)

Nail Stuff

I went to Sally's and got a few things for my nails :) I found these very cute flower accessories too <3

I also got some nail polish thinner by Beauty Secrets. Some of my nail polish were getting thicker than usual and so I thought I might give this a try. This is my first time buying this and so I don't know how it compares to other brands. I added a few drops to my old nail polishes and viola! Polishes are good as new! :P I also got Nail Life's "Aromatherapy Drop On" polish dryer. I don't know why but I always paint my nails at night. It has to be before I go to bed too and so I'm usually quite impatient when it comes to waiting for my nail polish to dry.

Just wanted to show you the dropper coz I thought it looked pretty cool haha! :P The directions tell me I'm supposed to add a drop on each nail after polishing my nails.
It actually has quite a nice scent to it... kinda fruity :)
I thought it worked pretty well :) my nail polished dried pretty fast :)
The residual product is also supposed to moisturize the cuticles and hands too :P

Ofcourse I had to play with the pretty flower accessories so I just wanted to share a picture of how I did my nails:
I attempted to try to paint lil "hello kitties" on my nails but they came out funny :P
I used Sally Hansen's "Nail art pen" in black to draw "Hello Kitty's" eyes, nose and whiskers. :PPretty convenient actually... I bought this at Walgreens a while back and since it's like a pen, it feels easier to draw designs on my nails compared to using brushes :P

Favorite Jewelry Item

This post is specifically for Stephanie's first Giveaway:

is quite crafty and creates many pretty jewelry pieces. You should check out her neat little store!
You can find her blogs below:
Always Hungry
Steph's Stuff

Rules for Stephanie's giveaway are to subscribe to both her blogs and write about your favorite jewelry item (you can write about your favorite fruit if you don't wear jewelry... how cute!). I believe that the giveaway is extended to 12:00 a.m. PST-June 16, 2009 (Tuesday).

I have so many favorite jewelry items but here is a picture of one of my favorite jewelry pieces. :) It is a crystal key pendent with a heart-shaped theme? on a thick chain. I like how you can use either clasp depending on whether you want to wear the chain shorter or longer ;)

I bought it from a random thrift store. It was quite cheap actually...
So that's one of the main reasons why it is my favorite: a pretty item for a great price! I had to dig amongst all the other weird things they had for sale in that thrift shop and so when I first laid my eyes on it, it felt like I had found hidden treasure... :P hahaha!

And here, Stephanie, a picture of me wearing my favorite necklace for u :P Hope you like! :P

Speaking about Jewelry... Cherrielantern from "Love Baby Love" and "Crystalize Me" is also having her first giveaway. She will be giving makeup surprises and two of her very very cute Swarovski crystal MINI animals!!!

Yay! My new ride! <3

This picture is actually not my bike... but it's the same type (minus the cool-looking red flame design). I found the picture here.
I finally had the motorcycle transferred to my name yesterday. :) It's officially mine! :P
Waiting in line was torture... It was funny because I had to wait in line for more than an hour just to get the transferring process over in 2 minutes! But I'm happy now... :)

A ban on all beauty products

Hmm.. I came across this article from the BBC News website:

"Can a simple idea help make the world a better place? Each week we ask a guest to outline an idea to improve all our lives. Here, Baroness Haleh Afshar suggests banning make-up."

What do you think?
