Yeah so their playing all about that bass at work! They did a change with our music the other day and I guess we're playing all types of music now. J said there were country songs playing yesterday. I only worked 3 hours today and half of it was spent out of the store so I didn't notice a change and then I've been waiting for J to get off work the past few hours and didn't notice anything different playing. Until just now! They've never played All About That Bass before.
It's 7 days in and I want to decorate for Halloween!!!! But I don't know where my decorations are. I wonder if J will open the trailer so I can see if we can get to my Halloween tote at all.
And I don't know if I mentioned this yet. When we go to Orlando this month, we're going to Seaworld!!!!! Finally J says we can go.
On our way home from work tonight he said we should try taking a vacation in February. And that we needed to think of a place..... I suggest Washington DC and he said he was just going to suggest it. So that's where we're going. Now we need to find out what do we want to do, how close everything is and if we can get a hotel close enough to where we might not need our car as much. I know DC has a subway so we could give that a try too!
So if you've ever been to Washington DC, let me know and let know me know too what did you like, where did you eat, what didn't you like, what should you have skipped, what was more fun for adults than for kids? We don't have kids so things that aren't fun for kids but fun for adults is okay. Let me (us) know all the details!!!
Pahlish is an indie nail polish company that I stumbled upon s few weeks ago. I love the mystery polishes the best. Every month there's a collection of polishes she sells for $11-13 I think. Then every so often she releases older polishes on I think Sunday. I'm not sure of her releasing habits. But I do know that once in a while, she'll sell some mystery polishes and those were $6.50 when I bought my first two but the third order was $7 each. I've placed two orders with them so far and the packaging is great. The envelopes are purple!! I love purple.
The above picture was my first order and I'd like to add right now that both of these orders came really quickly. I want to say within a week? The purple shade is a mystery color ($6.50) and just has a question mark on the bottom. Then the green ($11) was the one I really really really wanted but I was disappointed by it instead. =( It's called The Dawn Patrol and I thought it was going to be more of a pretty teal aqua color. But I got a color that is more hunter green to me. I'm still not sure what to think of the color. I also decided I'd just keep ordering mystery colors bc you can't get disappointed that it doesn't match the blog photos since there wouldn't be any!!
Then my second order I got 3 mystery polishes but two of them had names as you can see. I wore Dwemer and it has small rainbow flakes in it but I wish they were bigger and/or more of them so that you could actually get a bunch on your nails. I haven't tried the other colors. But I need to paint my nail this weekend so maybe I'll try one of them. Unless I get polish in the mail from one of my subs. I didn't get tracking for my RH bag but other girls have. So it could just show up soon.
Here's a link if you want to look at her colors, they change often! I don't even remember to look when she changes sometimes. Like a few weeks ago there was a really pretty white polish with blue glitter/flakes maybe in it and I was going to go against my new mystery only policy and buy that one but I missed the release date and then when I went back it was gone and new colors were in the place. http://www.pahlish.bigcartel.com
September was better but was still a disappointment. Other people weren't happy either.
I was excited when I opened the package....
Do you see why I was excited???? Stars!! The label has stars on it and I love stars.
Then I opened it and was immediately so disappointed I didn't even take a picture of what was included.
So I just took some pictures now.
Do you see the major problem?? The polishes are smaller than the size that the minis have been since December. This is the size they were when I first signed up. I didn't sign up for the mini because I didn't want small bottles like that. December was the first month I got a mini bag, it was my first order from them and the bag was free with my order. Well the polishes that month were their new minis and they were 7.5 ml. I was like awesome and I made it a point then to get a mini bag every month. Then in June I even switched my sub to the mini because the sizes were great now. Then this happens. These are 5 ml and so tiny.
I took this picture twice and apparently both are blurry. Oh well. I really like both polishes and would have loved to have them in the 7.5 size because I know I'll use them often (especially the star one) and I would even want to buy the large to get back ups but now I'm frustrated with the company and don't know if I should. I've used Underwater World twice and you can see how much is gone already.
I love the stars!!!
There's everything altogether. There's a full size cuticle oil in their new scent truffle cappuccino and it's actually not that strong of a coffee bitter smell so I could probably use this. I have other cuticle oils though that I prefer and I don't use them that much, I prefer the cuticle balms. Plus they didn't give me a box! Some people got boxes and other people didn't. The perfume (yes, another perfume) is called Way Cooler and I like it but again, I'm not a perfume person. Well technically this is called a body mist but yeah, I don't use scented items often and certainly not when it's only purpose is to make you smell nice. Like lotions, cuticle oils and balms are fine when they're scented but they serve a purpose other than to make you smell better. The thing that says Vanilla Plains smells really good but it's a cooling gel and I don't get sunburned enough to need another cooling gel and when I am sunburned, I don't use anything usually. I wish this was a hand sanitizer. We got one in November and I like it and would use it more if I liked the scent enough. Maybe I'll put it in the car to try to use it more. Anyways. That was the only one we've received and they've done 3 cooling gels in the past 12 or 13 months. They had midori last summer and then this summer they had twisted ice tea and now vanilla plains. The final item is soap and the scent is chocolate mint. But it's brown. It's poop brown soap! Who's going to want to use dark brown soap?! I won't use it because it's mint even though the mint doesn't seem to be that strong but if I did like mint, I wouldn't use it because it's POOP BROWN. it should have been green or even green and light brown marbled.
I still liked the September bag better than the August bag despite not getting a box, getting products I won't use and getting the old minis. I still liked it better!
The mystery bag for August wasn't that exciting for me. I subscribe to the mini bag which is $10 a month and $3 for shipping or as I say $13 a month.
So the scent was fruit juice and the items were perfume, bath oil and bath tea. The scent is nice, I like fruit scents so this was sort of a win for me. It wasn't super special like Pomme rouge and pomelo are to me but it's alright. I'm just not a perfume person as much as I try to be and I don't have a bath tub so the other two items are pointless for me right now. I think we're getting a hotel room for one night this month so maybe I'll bring the bath tea with me and use it just to use it.
The nail polishes are called Mr. Saturn (the peach) which is too pale for me to like but it does have shimmer. And Jelly Red Sandals which is just a red jelly polish. I don't like red and only use it for holidays so it won't get much use from me. But it is a preview for a collection that I think is coming out next year and I am excited for that because I'm hoping that they're going to be a collection of jelly polishes. And Mr. Saturn is going to be a part of the summer of 199x collection which is being rereleased summer of 2016 and it's going to have new polishes and Mr. Saturn is going to be part of that. So that's cool too because I loved that collection and bought almost all the polishes. I think I'm missing three (lumine hall, pink cloud and I miss you) and I'll be able to get them next year. I don't need I miss you but I need the other two for sure. Especially lumine hall.
The final product is a full size of their base coat. I wasn't a fan of it so I'm like blah that I got yet another bottle. It makes my nail polish peel off when I use it so I just avoid it.
So yeah, I wasn't excited by August and I haven't used anything yet.
