Julep Marion

Hello everyone, hope you all are staying safe and warm! We had another round of snow yesterday that brought us around 3 inches and we are expecting yet another round tonight into tomorrow that is said to bring us anywhere from 2-8 inches. I've heard so many conflicting reports of what we are supposed to get, so I guess I'll just figure it out for myself once the storm is over :/

In polish news....... I want to share with you my first ever Julep polish, Marion. I found her at TJ Maxx sometime last year and finally got around to trying her out. Marion is a gorgeous teal green color with some shimmer, has a great formula as well, in my swatches I only applied one coat, yep just one! It dried really fast to which we all know is a huge plus. The only thing that I didn't like about it, is that it stained my nails. I'm not going to place all the blame on Marion just yet, because I'm still trying out  my home made peel off base and that may be to blame for the staining. I'll try Marion out again at some point using a regular base and see how that goes. 

Isn't she gorgeous?! I do wish that the sun would have been out better to help capture the nice shimmer that is in this polish. I wanted to set it off a little more so I did end up adding Salon Perfect Cosmic Dust on top. Of course I was not able to capture all the glittery goodness of that polish since the sun was not out. I can say for sure though that Cosmic Dust is an exact dupe for China Glaze Fairy Dust!

And last but not least in Technology news...... I finally have a new computer!!!! YAY!! I was originally looking for an All-in-One, but my computer savvy friend cautioned me to stay away from them, and after doing some research of my own on them I did come to the conclusion to stick with a tower CPU. I ended up getting a Dell Inspiron 3847, it has all the bells and whistles I was looking for in a computer with the exception of a webcam, but I can buy one to go on it or just keep using my iPhone when I Skype family. But now I can finally get back to blogging and not have to worry about it crashing while I'm working and not have to worry about it working at a snails pace LOL.

It is taking me a little getting used to, I've been using the same computer with Windows XP on it for the last 10 years!

Out with the old:

And in with the new:

Since I'll be snowed in for the next couple of days, I'll have time to learn how to work Windows 8.1 Hopefully LOL


  1. Oh geez, I hate the new windows set up they're sticking on stuff. -_- My friend got a laptop that works like that and I couldn't make heads or tails of it. I would recommend getting a webcam for Skype. Seems to work a lot better than the phone version. We got ours at Best Buy for... $15?

    Also, Marion is lovely!! ^_^ Can kind of see the shimmer even without sun.

    1. I'm getting used to it, but it's so different LOL. $15 for a webcam sounds like a good deal to me, much easier than having to hold the phone up in front of me for the whole conversation ;)

  2. being snowed in = hot chocolate and cookies :) loveley post
