Another Viva La nails review and some thoughts about life

Posted on Tuesday, November 16, 2010 | 6 Comments

Hi Darlings!

Today is going to be a very long post so sit down and grab some popcorn =)..or nuts..or whatever you like to munch on..I like gummy bears.

I’m going to start out with something light:

I stuck them on with tweezers and then applied a top coat.  I went to sleep and when I woke up I found that about 3 of the tiny jewels had come off.  There is also color bleeding. The red glitter in the previous post bled and now the stickers are bleeding.Well, only one of the stickers bled, the pink sticker on the index finger/ pointer finger

Disclaimer - The product was sent to me for review with no payment. My opinion is an honest one

Second item of business:

I was talking to a friend of mine and he said this:  The way I think of it is: Your life and mine is insignificant. The entire human race is just half a blink in the eye of the universe. Why not make the most out of it as yourself, as an individual. F*ck the world - make your life your own.”

After thinking about what he said, I pulled out my list…you know, the list we all have, literally or mentally of all the things we wanted to do and of all the places we wanted to go. 

Here’s a bit of my list:
  1. Go dog sledding
  2.  Learn to snowboard
  3. See the Taj Mahal
  4. Gain courage to hold a reptile: snake, lizard, turtle
  5. Gain courage to hold a spider
  6. See the Northern lights
  7. Go Bungee jumping
  8. Go to Russia
  9. See a volcano: extinct/ dormant/ alive
  10. See narwhals
  11. Eat a molecular gastronomy meal
  12. etc..

Although I have had this list for many years, I have only completed 2 out of the 100s of things listed. I am going to slowly work on chipping away at this list. Sure it will take money and time, but to make my life my own I want to do things I want or at least work towards doing things I want to do. 

So this is what I’ve done:

Bungee Jumping on Whistler Mountain:

Crocodile named Lucy

I know a lot of bloggers are having a lot of difficulties in their life and well, after talking to my friend I realized we only have the one chance to make it the life we want, so why don’t we?-->Money and time.  I think that as long as we have a goal in life/ have a desire to do something and we work towards it, we make our life much more worthwhile when we actually do reach one of our goals.

Third item of business:

A small favor request:

My sister entered a contest on Cathay Pacific Canada's facebook page and I would love it if you could vote for her entry.  The only catch is that the contest requires you to have a facebook account.  It is the Art of dessert contest, what happens is you make a dessert that if chosen will be served on International Cathay Pacific flights.

Her dessert is under Amy Choh, B.C.: Coconut Panna Cotta with Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce and Banana Chips

Here’s a picture of it:

It’s pretty much coconut pudding + dark chocolate hazelnut sauce + a side of banana chips.  I had a taste of it just now and the Coconut Panna Cotta is Awesome! (I’m not just saying this because she’s my sister, it really is awesome)

If you guys have the time it would be great if you could vote for her. 
Voting instructions:
1. Just follow the link http://www.facebook.com/cathaypacificCA
2. Click on the "Like" button page to like the Cathay Pacific Canada page

3. Click on the“Art of Dessert” Tab
3. The contestants should be listed a little below
4. Scroll for “Amy Choh,B.C: Coconut Panna Cotta with Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce and Banana Chips” and click “Like” to vote   <---currently I believe she's on page 10

I’m going to tweet it too and if you guys could help spread the word I would really appreciate it. A few clicks is all it takes to make my sister very happy =)
