My Current Obsessions!

Thursday 3 March 2011

Hey Ladies,

The problem with having no job (apart from the not having a job bit) is having loads of time on your hands & a Macbook with connection to the internet in your hands. This means lots of browsing & spontaneously deciding that my life will not be worth living for without the item that I'm coveting.

This is my current list .... my name is Nicola & I'm a shopaholic!

A Bag Pouch - Totally unnecessary thing to have but I figure I spend ages trying to find everything in my handbag so a pouch within my bag will all my necessities in will help with the quality of my life. I currently have 2 on my radar, one is from Mulberry & is about £80 which I think is reasonable & the other is from Chloe & will be a gift with purchase of a Chloe fragrance from The Perfume Shop this month! .... I think I want them both!

A Watch - I also have made it my mission to get a reasonably priced watch that I don't mind wearing everyday, I was going to get a Rose Gold Michael Kors one but when I tried it on it looked a little silly on me so my search has been continuing and I decided to look at ToyWatch and can't decide whether I like the standard one or the more fancy one!

My Nails - As you all probably know I do love my nail polish but the last few months I've been too busy to think about taking care of them & keeping them manicured by painting them 3 or 4 times a week so I've been going with the easy option of using press on nails, then painting them & having the same shade on for a week. Now I've removed them I'm getting so excited about having the Shellac system & their equivalents from other brands to get my nails stronger & I have had a rather large shopping spree of new nail polish colours to use when my nails are nice & strong! The above pics are my inspiration I aim to create a black tipped manicure!!

French Toast - I found the recipe from  Lolasayswhat & I've had it like 4 times since, such a great breakfast, it's actually not THAT bad for you, bread = carbs, egg = protein, milk = Calcium (I use semi skimmed) & don't have sugar in my tea & don't have any really during the day so this is allowed! I also don't use butter to fry it in because there's never any in my house, the modification I've done is sprinkle the sugar on the fried toast & then kept it in the pan & it caramelises! Amazing!!

Hope you're all having a lovely week so far, mine has been spent with my nose pressed against my Macbook & playing Mario of course ... I really need a job!! :) Thanks for reading & let me know if you know anything in my obsessions that I NEED to have & what your current obsessions are!
