The Obnoxious Owl Experience: Weekilinks

So we're knee deep in December...there are more fake Santa's than you could shake a stick at, Oprah is in town and Facebook had a face lift...can't decide if I'm feeling it yet, however the old one used to be the new one as well...if you know what I mean.  Social network overhauls aside, this was my week ...

First off, I had my thigh ingrained all tropical and shit ...


And that's not regrowth you are peeping, it's the ink in my pores OK? I have legs like a babies ass.  So yeah, I go me a pineapple.  There's a little story to it...but I feel lame for going on about it, so if I see you remind me to tell you, otherwise...it's just a pineapple on my thigh.  Now let's talk about them naaillzzzzzzzz...here's a better pic ...




It's MAGIC nail varnish.  My nail tech brought this mad stuff back from China and she went all magician on my claws.  You put a base coat on of whatever colour, then the magic colour goes over the top, you put it in front of a fan and it starts to crack right in front of your eyes!  Pretty amazing. Are your nails as amazing as these? Prolly not.

Now I haven't copped myself anything fresh in aaaages, no seriously...I really haven't been shopping at all.  Most of my $$$ has been going on parking fines, bagels and cream cheese, petrol, hotel rooms (don't ask) and pear cider. Anyways, I very spur of the moment got these ...


Yes. I got me some VANS Authentic.  The last time I had a pair of these was in 2003...and they are now, as my Nan would say, knackered.  I just wanted a cute little shoe that wasn't Air Max for a change. These go with everything, especially with little dresses.  The Air Max give me too much of a Lily Allen circa 2006 vibe (her better years no doubt) and I am a little over the references.  Don't get me wrong, I'm married to my 90's but these Authentic's are a good little foot outfit.  FUCK that was a lot of words just about shoes. It's just that I have so much of it! I just moved house on the weekend, and LOOK at my closet ...


I'm not even finished unpacking!  It's spilling out like my tits would in an egg cup.  This is probably why I haven't been buying stuff lately...because really, I'm not actually in need of anything.  Take last weekend for example, I threw another party and I needed something dardy to wear and I found this fab dress that Lady SJ  gave me a while back.  It's purple, and poofy and very Cyndi Lauper.  I've never worn it, and I felt like it needed an outing ...


Hmmm.  I don't really know who I think I am making sex eyes at the camera like that because this was taken the morning after the party at around 9am and I hadn't gone to bed yet.  Nothing to be proud of!  Aw shit, who am I kidding?!  I am winning in this picture.  Thank you and good evening.  In all seriousness though, I should take a leaf out of my friend Alex's blog and start flogging threads on Ebay.  God knows I need the cash, what with my parking fines reaching new heights and everything.

And lastly, I babysat my sisters pooch one morning ...


Yeah I feel ya buddy.

Bye! x

You can buy the cracked polish from OPI's Katy Perry collection. It's out now. Should be able to get it at David Jones and I believe it's $19.95
Ahhh the perks of writing about bullshit for money

Your nails are rad, Owl xx
