06.25.14 - My Pretty Zombie

 Oh my, it's been a LONG time since I posted indie products. I'd like to try to post swatches and reviews again. I just haven't had the time because of my subscriptions. Honestly, I should be working on them but my printer ran out of ink (I was trying to make labels) and won't be able to get ink for a few days. So, I thought I would work on this.

Btw, please excuse the photos. The camera that I used before has died a horrible and terrible death. They didn't sell it locally any more. so I chose this one. I'm trying to make it work. 

Sorry for the ramble. Let's get on with this.

I purchased these My Pretty Zombie colors in April (I told you it's been a long time! :P) because I accidentally didn't purchase enough samples for my subscriptions (for June 2014). I have ordered (not for my subscription) from MPZ before but the last time I did was about 3 years ago. So, I thought it was time to do an order.

Since this order was from so long ago, I misplaced the samples she included. I, just threw them in my samples pile >__>;;; Have you noticed I'm still rambling? Sorry!

WEEK in REVIEW: 06.09.14 - 06.15.14

 It's been awhile, no? I've just been busy. Honestly, I haven't decorated my planner much or even used it. I'm trying to start using it again. I've been kind of lost without it. Plus, it's relaxing when I decorate, even if it's minimal...

PLANNER: Filofax Patent (Pocket) in Duck Eggs (oh so cute!)

06.10.14 - Filofax: Very simple Pocket setup

My first Filofax was a Pocket sized Finsbury in Antique Rose. I purchased it a year ago. I thought that the pocket size was enough for me. Apparently that wasn't true since at this moment, I have pocket sized, personal sized, and an A5 planner. 

Yet, I constantly go back. I'm extremely indecisive about what size or which one to use. So I decided to switch off every 3 months. June will be the last month in my pocket size before I switch to an A5. 

I was in love with the Patent Filofax line but they were constantly sold out on the FilofaxUSA site. I was super happy to see that someone was selling it on one of the selling pages on Facebook. I snatched it up. I really wanted this one because it has 19mm rings. The other pocket sized ones I have only have 15 mm rings.

Isn't she a beauty?

Winchester Mystery House and other things

It's been a long time since I posted. 

Anyway, a few weeks ago; I took a week (paid YAY!) vacation during my birthday week. I always do, actually. I didn't do much except watch a bunch of movies, went shopping a bit... and some other things.

I had plans to do a dinner thing with a bunch of my co-workers but we couldn't figure out a time. The time we wanted was after work on a Sunday because our store closed earlier. Lucky me (sarcasm here), they decided to change the Sunday closing hours recently... so the place I wanted to go to dinner was closed during that time. 

I tried finding a different time or a place; but I decided it was just too much hassle. 

One of my friends said that we should still do something. While we were at work, we were discussing things and I said I had always wanted to go to the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, Ca.  Well, we decided that that was what we were going to do! One of my other co-workers overheard and kind of decided to join us. It's okay though because we got along with her. Lol
