Nail Art is Not for me!

I tried Nail Art for the first time in Singapore. I was shopping all day and I wanted to just sit down somewhere and just get pampered. So I popped into the first nail spa I saw. The lady next to me was doing something glittery so I just told the girl to do the same thing- I was too exhausted to think! They gave me a drinks menu with lots of tea options- my favourite! I chose a green tea and put my head back to enjoy my pampering session.

The end result was kind of ewwww...ahhaah don't know what I was thinking. Maybe it's because my hands are gross- I have stubby hands and fingers and really bad nails to start off with! This nail art did not do my hands any favours!

I couldn't wait to peel off those diamond studs- they felt like pimples on my finger nails- so yuk!

Anyway, I have been trying this new new lipstick by Bloop. I bought it at the Singapore Airport. It's an invisible lipstick which reacts to heat on your lips and changes to a bright pink colour! How fun!

It is very very pink- just something fun to do! The formula is oily and feels like lipgloss. The smell is not my cup of tea either! Like expired lollies? But otherwise its a very good moisturising lipstick.

Lately I have been trying some shops I found in the book "Food Lovers' Guide to Perth" and the first one I tried is Japanese Green Tea House in Subiaco. Anyone know this little store?

It's a very small shop and it stocks Japanese crockery - mainly tea cups and pots but they also have to most beautiful bento boxes/ containers. I love them! They were a bit pricey since it's all imported from Japan. But I will add them to my birthday wish list! hehe

I bought some tea- Sencha & Gyokuro. Both taste and smell different. I didn't know there was a process to making tea! The owner, Tom, showed us how to make the tea and even let us try a few:)

I tried the tea with some red bean jelly from the store- yummy:)

My addiction at the moment- I can't stop eating this!

LOL! I'm so sorry you didn't like the nail art - it doesn't actually look too bad...I'd like to do one for myself but I don't think I'd have the skills to do it!
