Urban Decay & the High Line

New York Fashion Week is a crazy time in NYC! There are so many events going on. Unfortunately, many are not open to everyone and those that are fill up fast! So when I saw that Urban Decay was giving out coffee & samples in Chelsea I headed straight there!

Guild Wars 2 Nail Art

Last week, a new online computer game was released, Guild Wars 2. I have been hearing all about it because of my incredibly nerdy boyfriend. The launch date was August 25 for people that pre-purchased the game, and the open release was August 28. Guild Wars 2 is an MMO, so you play online with a bunch of other people, leveling your character, completing events, and exploring the world. It is along the likes of World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings Online, Star Wars The Old Republic, among others. After knowing Preston for so long my nerdiness was amped up to the extreme as well, and I played a lotttt of WOW. So, I was really excited to play Guild Wars 2 because it had the things I loved about WOW and also some different aspects that seemed to fit my wants in a video game even better. Unfortunately, they don't have a Mac client, so I have been playing on Preston's account. I am a Norn Ranger, and she is prettyyy cool. ;]

Rainbow Water Marble

I am so excited for fall! I can't wait to drink Pumpkin Spiced Lattes while wearing a chunky sweater & boots. But after finishing my first week of classes, I had the feeling, "Maybe I'm not so ready for fall..." So to enjoy the last of warm weather and bright colours, I did a water marble using some of my new Color Club polishes.
