dirty dishes

I'm really terrible when it comes to doing dishes. They often pile up for a day or two before I do them... >_< Hey! Don't look at me like that, you know you do it too!!!! :P

So the other day, I was walking past my little pile on my counter... and I found it oddly beautiful. Thus, the picture that I have posted of my dirty ass dishes. (If you were curious, they were dishes from mushroom spaghetti, apple pie, and gingerbread tea topped with vegan eggnog... it was a good day for my tummy.) All of my vintage-inspired dishes and cups are mismatched and I WORSHIP THEM. They are so unique. I get them mostly from Anthropologie, but some other places as well. It's always a such a thrill when I'm shopping and I come across a new piece to add to my collection!

i'm dying over these nails right meow

My favorite nail design to-date!! They just make me squeal with joy!

Lately, I've been REALLY into designing nail art. I say "designing nail art" because, well, I'm not the one actually doing the painting, but I sketch out the design to show the artist what I'd like for her to paint. I've been SO lucky to have found one of the most talented nail artists in the world... because I would NEVER be able to do this on my own! I could never even really paint my nails... so thank god for gel polish. 

Anyway, so the other day I went to the salon with this design in mind. AND I FREAKING DIED OVER THE END-RESULT. I look at my nails, like, 248579457 times a day. The color- perfect. The shape- perfect. The designs- PURRFECT. The kitten nail took her 45 minutes to do!! BUT IT'S SO GOOD! I was just sitting there, wide-eyed- the entire time. And then when she did my name in cursive I was like, "Ok, she's good... but I really don't think she'll be able to do this!". AND THEN.... YOU GUYS- SHE DID IT. hahaha ^_^ When I hold my hands together, it's supposed to be basically be my full name- "Kalel Kitten", which I thought was super cute. 

Btw, I know a lot of people hate pointy nails... but step back, because they are FLAWLESS.

alice will hold my place!

The cutest of all bookmarks. 

These little sticky-note bookmarks are ALL over the place in Japan. Naturally, I had a heart attack when I saw them and bought several kinds. But the Alice in Wonderland ones are my very favorites! It's the little things in life that make me smile.

perfume tray

Ahhh perfumes. How I love to admire your beauty. 

This is my current collection {Lollia Wish, Tocca Brigette, ChloƩ, Prada Candy L'Eau, Cartier Goutte de Rose, Miss Dior (Toilette) & True Religion} and I have them displayed on this drool-worthy vintage tray that I bought for TEN DOLLARS at a flea market. But seriously... what is it about perfumes that makes us women swoon? I just feel like I have so much appreciation for the aesthetics of ANYTHING, really. I'm just such a visual person. I will HONESTLY convince myself that I like the smell of a perfume, if the bottle design suits my fancy. You know you have a problem when... ^_^
