I've been feeling very distracted lately, and not felt the time to blog. Are trying to renovate a house in the spare time, and so have very little time for food and make up, and especially taking time to take photos and blog a bout it too.

But a little update on what I've been up to the last few months in picture form:

I got my first Nails Inc. polish this month. It came with In Style magazine. I liked it cause I have no polishes in that kind of color. I paired it with tips made with a Sally Hansen polish in the color Royal Romance.

I've also been baking a bit. I made this cinnamon carrot cake with a cream cheese topping.

Bad picture I know, but I was in a hurry. I was at a wedding this weekend, and this is how a had my nails. I used: Bourjois in Beige Paris 39 as a base, Sally Hansen in Royal Romance for the flower petals, Max Factor Nailfinity in 704 Disco Pink for the center of the flowers, and for dots around the flowers I used Bourjois in Rose Fashion 52 and OPI in Pearls Night Out.

It's nice when the other half cooks for you, and especially nice when it's food like this :D Yummy Greek style lamb shank with sweet potato mash and veg.

Mazarin cake. First time I tried to make my own... was a bit on the dry side, so will have tweak the recipe for next time... but most definitely edible, only lasted a few days around here :)

I've been meaning to do a post about this website, but never got to it. It's called Feminine Wear.
I got these washable face pads, to replace cotton pads. And it has really cut down on my use of cotton wool... I still have cotton wool, but use it mainly to remove nail polish. I hope to get more on a later date, so I can stop using cotton wool completely for my face, and only have it in for nail polishes. Their service was really fast, and they have tons of things if you are thinking of being a bit more environmentally friendly.

Moroccan style chicken and chickpeas stew. Bad photo in bad light though.

I played a bit with MAC Impasionate lipstick :)

This was so yummy. Made a few time now. It's a green Thai chicken curry. And amazing. Will try and post the recipe next time I make it.

Home made fishcakes. Simple served with boiled potatoes and carrots.And a little portion of homemade remoulade.

I've got a tons more to show, and hope that I'll get a bit more time soon. All depends on that house :)

And lastly I'd just like to promote Bakerella. Was told about this site by a friend, and it is amazing!!!!!
