Fancy Fingers, Phones and Flights

3 May 2012


Hello Ladies, how's the week going? I'm pleased to say it's almost the weekend again. I'm already getting excited about the prospect of more lazing in the park and a bit of al fresco dining!

This week has been rather good for me. The nice weather has meant we've been able to get out and about in the evening for a couple of walks around the nearby parks. Isn't it amazing how good some warm weather and a bit of sunshine can make you feel?!

On Tuesday night I also picked up a new phone. I must have been the only person in all of Korea still using an iPhone 3. As a foreigner it's just too much of a headache to try and sort these kind of things out, so whilst my phone was still functioning I wasn't too bothered about getting a new one. Recently, it's been showing signs of dying so I decided to go upgrade. It only took me two separate visits to the shop, about 15 phone calls to a korean friend of mine and a total of around 5 hours to get an iPhone 4. Haha!

The Mr. surprised me with the cute cover when I got home. Isn't he a sweetie!

Another thing I've been excited about this week is my latest addition to my polish collection. Which, by the way, is growing at a shocking and slightly disturbing rate! I fear I may be developing a polish addiction. Okay, that's a lie, I know I have a polish addiction and it's been going on for a long time but I've been in denial.

Still, this new polish from Tony Moly is a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's 'Glitter In The Air' and could not be passed up. I actually ordered 'Glitter In The Air' weeks and weeks ago from an eBay seller (only way I can get it here) but it never arrived. Cue angry, also very disappointed me checking the mail box...every. single. day....TWICE. for the last five weeks. No joke!

Finally I accepted it's never coming, considered crying for a bit, then found out about this dupe available in Korea (Tony Moly is a Korean brand I think...). I headed straight to the store to get it and I'm now pretty chuffed. Can you see what I mean about an addiction going on?! It only cost $3 (versus Lippmann's $18 price tag) and from all the picture comparisons I've made it really does seem to be a near perfect match.

It's a pale blue base with pink and blue glitter. It goes on quite smoothly, although it's very sheer so you do need at least three coats if you want solid coverage like my photos. The glitter builds up quite nicely if you do three coats though!

As for the actual Deborah Lippmann one I ordered...I contacted the seller and apparently they've re-shipped it to me, so we'll see if it makes it this time!

Other exciting developments over this way are that we're going to Hong Kong in just over two weeks!! We booked the tickets last night for a four day trip. I've always wanted to visit Hong Kong so I'm really, really excited about it!


Does anyone have any recommendations for places to stay/things to see/restaurants to eat in etc? I'd love to hear them if you do!

  1. If this is the color you had on your last post than it's very lovely! I was wondering what it was.. like most things you wear :) Haha. I'm glad you like your new phone. I have a 3GS and I can't wait to get an upgrade! Cute cover by the way! <3

    Hope you're having a lovely week and I'm so jealous for your Hong Kong trip! You better take lots of photos!

  2. Yes, I was wearing it in the last post :)

    I didn't mind my 3gs at all but in Korea everyone is so into their phones, no-one keeps one more than 6 months! I had a two year contract and it's a pain to get out of them so I just patiently waited until I could upgrade.

    I'll take plenty of photos in Hong Kong, of course! :D

    2. Aw thank you hun! :) You're so sweet.

      I didn't really know the cosmo blog awards are coming up, in fact I don't know much about them because I can't get cosmo out here :( Do you have to get nominated by other people or do you submit yourself?

      I'd love to enter but I'm not sure many people would vote for me, there's so many amazing blogs and bloggers out there!

      I reckon your mum would buy you the case, if you ask her really nicely ;)
