Thirsty Thursdays: Corpse Reviver cocktail

Hi loves!

How is your Thursday going?

You know what's really weird?  Anytime my hubby goes out of town for work I get to stay up really late at night.  Not because I want to; I just do.. browsing the Internet, playing stupid games on my iPad..  I should really go to bed at 10pm and I've been hitting the hay close to midnight for the last few days!  It's like my hubby 'makes' me go to bed on time, even if he's still watching TV and doesn't actually lay down with me.  He came back from traveling today, and I'm so glad, maybe I will finally get some shut-eye! =))

Today's happy hour special is very Halloween-ish:  Corpse Reviver cocktail, inspired by China Glaze "But of Corpse"!

China Glaze "Getting to Gnaw You"

Hey beautiful ladies!

I just got back from vacation and few days later it feels like I never left..  stress is building back up and same bullshit at work as usual...  I need like 2 months off!  A colleague of mine accidentally fell and broke his arm not too long ago.  It's not a bad break, but he has to be off for 8 to 10 weeks...  Now I don't really want my arm broken, but I'm kinda jealous of him!!  Two months at home being a bum!!  He's not even taking pain meds anymore and still has like 7 more weeks more to go!!  Gah!

On that note, here's another Halloween polish: China Glaze "Getting to Gnaw You"!

Let me Rest in Pieces...

Hi beauties!

Another post from me tonight since I was too busy to write anything up last night.  Another Halloween polish tonight, and one that I absolutely adore!  Not only it is fabulous, but it is named just like one of my favorite songs by Saliva.  Check out China Glaze "Rest in Pieces"!

China Glaze "Don't Let the Dead Bite"

Hi beautiful ladies!

How are you? 

I'm pretty busy but hanging in there...  I went out with a friend last night , the one who moved to San Francisco not too long ago because his stupid wife made an ultimatum.  He came here for a week for work and to visit friends.  It was so good to see him, but at the same time so sad because he is not happy in California.  We've been friends for over 15 years now and it really sucks to see him like this... I want to break his stupid wife's legs for doing this to him!!  argh!!  Maybe one day he will realize that he deserves to be happy!

This week you will see Halloween polishes and designs from me.  First one up is China Glaze "Don't Let the Dead Bite"!
