Fall Leaves and an Award ^_^

I love fall colors :) Mostly because they look good on my skin tone
After my package came in the mail from cherryculture I had all the colors I needed to make a pretty fall mani
so here goes!








China Glaze in Solar Power
Arissa in Creamy Mocha
NYC colors in 112A (orange)
LA Colors in Berry Red
I also dabbled some LA Girl in Gold Plated and Sinful Colors in All About you over the top 
Stamped with BM19 and Milani in Black Magic



Also! I received this beauty in the mail from a swap



China Glaze in Medallion
I cant wait to try out this glittery goodness!

And last but not least, the wonderful Katrina has given me an award ^_^ you should check out her blog here because it is awesomeness!



1. Why did you create the blog?
- because I spent so much time looking at other people's blogs... I also wanted a way to share what I was learning :)

2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
- mostly nail blogs but a few fashion and makeup ones as well. I also look at some tumblr about randomness (like my friend's: http://awkwarddrunkcactuslover.tumblr.com/

3. Do you have a favourite make-up brand?
- hmm not particularly. I have a lot of Rimmel eye stuff  and Sonia Kashuk make up brushes, but the majority of my makeup is of different brands 

4. And a favourite clothing brand?
- Not really. I like affordable. I shop at Ross and Target and sometimes even Sears (you'd be surprised at how awesome some of their stuff is)

5. What make-up products is essential for you?
- Benefit's Boi-oing concealer and Victoria's secret purple Mascara. yeah... unless Im going out, thats all I wear

6. What’s your favourite colour?
- I love all shades of purple! Im a fan of the... the... well I can't remember what they are called right now... but amethyst purple and turquoise and citrine. Like these! 



7. What’s your favourite perfume?
-Lolita Lampicka! I picked it out because the bottle was so pretty. And then I ended up loving how it smelled too


8. What’s the film you liked the most?
- My favorite of the moment is Fargo, but that is likely to change as I watch more and more movies :)

9. What countries would you like to go?
- Anywhere. I want to travel to everywhere! South America, North Africa, Asia, Europe. I want to go there. whatever place you are thinking of right now, I want to go there. hehe


Now I have to give it to 10 bloggers;
1. Winnie
2. Cel
3. ABOP
6. Cyan
7. Arie
9. Kelly

Well, thats all for now!
