Viva Las Vegas?

New version of WordPress, eh? Its alright. I don’t like how I’m typing in some weird looking typewriter-esque font. I hate the visual mode though so it’ll have to do. Speaking of WordPress, for some reason the version of WordPress that’s used for my company’s website doesn’t have an HTML tab…has a crapload of little icons and took me forever to figure out I had to click a little “source” button to find the code. I can’t even update the version or anything because whoever originally set it up locked it for editing or something so I’ll have to fiddle around with it and look for the FTP info. This Monday was Independence Day, so I had off work and …

Mini Reviews: Olay, Clinique, Yes to Carrots

As mentioned in a previous entry, I’ve completely revamped my skincare routine based on recommendations from Beautypedia.

Weekly Nails: Sally Hansen Commander in Chic

Ignore the fact that this says “Weekly Nails” instead of “Nails of the Week”. If a color name is too long, it will go over the text box in my layout…so I had to shorten it =p This week I wanted something not as “nudey”, so I chose[amazon_link id=”B003VDGG56″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ] Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in “Commander in Chic”[/amazon_link].

With the “complete salon manicure” line, you’re not supposed to need a base or top coat, but I still …
