5 Things: Peanut Edition (May 2013)

Shelly, Sammy, and Ray... <3 these Turtles

Coming to DVD in July!!!
1. TURTLES!!! But specifically, Sammy, Shelly, and Ray, the stars of A Turtle's Tale. Peanut LOVES this movie, and we watch it 5 or 6 times a weekend. Sometimes, I put it on for light noise. It's got a great soundtrack, and she loves all the different colors of the underwater scenes. I guess the adorably big-eyed turtles are probably a draw too. They are ah-dorable!

Training Sippy Cup

2. This works exactly like a bottle, but lets Peanut feel like a big kid holding her very own cup. She totally understands the concept and does pretty well holding it and drinking out of it.

Pete the Cat

Pete & Peanut

3. Peanut LOVES Pete the Cat. I downloaded the 4 stories they have online, burned them to a CD, and it's such a help in the car when my lil' Peanutty-Buddy turns into Fussypants on the long ride to and from work. Thankfully, the commute will be getting shorter soon... but for now, I <3 Pete too!

Big Girl Chair... Girly Tub

4. This high chair and tub from Granny... My Mom. Peanut adores her new high chair, because it means she can join in the fun during Wednesday night dinners. She also loves that Granny bought her a pink tub of her very own that she can use during visits. No more splashing in the bathroom sink for my little lady... She's moved on to splouncing... splashing and bouncing at the same time, which for her = MIND BLOWN. She LOVES it.

Buzz 'n Bite Teether
 
5. This Buzz 'n Bite Teether from Gigi... Mr. Sparkle's Mom. Peanut loves this teether to pieces. If you pull up on the purple part shown in the pic, it vibrates! Not only does she love chewing on it whether or not it's buzzing... She enjoys whacking it against her car seat along with the music that must be playing during our AM drive. Not sure if I have a tiny drummer, tiny dancer, or both?!?

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter. 

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
