Up to Nothing Much

Playing: Everybody Talks-Neon Trees
Reading: The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua
It's summer, which means I'm slowly rotting my brain away until my mum sends me to SAT prep classes or until I start panicking from all the various summer assignments I have from school. Either way, it's a lose/lose situation for me. Until then, I shall be busy eating delicious meals such as the Penne alla Amatriciana at Renata's Caffe Italiano, which is penne with fresh tomatoes, smoked pancetta, green onions, roasted garlic, onions, and fresh basil. On Chopped, judges criticize contestants for "over saucing" a dish, but I personally like having extra sauce for the bread, so I liked how there was leftover sauce once I was done with the penne.
While walking around in the parking lot by Renata's, I saw on the car next to us that they had a Hello Kitty exhaust pipe! How adorable, right? I've seen photos of this online, but I've never seen it in person, so I just had to grab a photo for all of you to see.
I also saw this at a store awhile back and I wanted to share this with you. I looked at the sign and of course, I read it, so when I left, the girl yelled at me, "You're a unicorn murderer." So there you go, I am an alleged unicorn killer.
I also painted my nails a blush borderline cotton candy pink color from Essie called Flawless. Although I like how this pink is toned down, I was disappointed to see that it chipped really badly within the one week that I wore it. I find most Essie polishes to be highly pigmented and a tad runnier than what I normally like. I'm still shocked by myself that I would wear pink nail polish. Pink is NOT my thing.
What color are your nails right now?

    My nails were white, but they've chipped and I've scratched them off. ^^ I love nail polishes. I especially love etude house nail polishes.

  6. lovely nail colour and nice pasta pics! haven't have that in quite awhile xoxo
    would you like to follow each other?

  7. London's Beauty-You've reminded me that I really want to test out white nail polish. I bought Alexander Wang's collaboration with Ally Hansen's Parchment, which is more of a cream color. :D

    blackberryfashion-Thank you so much! And Hello Kitty is my favorite character! ^^

    prancingbee-Aren't we the sick people for killing innocent unicorns? XD

    Priscilla-I'll definitely check out your blog and I look forward to getting more comments from you! :3

    La Dolce Vita-You're welcome! And I'm so pleased to hear you like my blog! (:

    Anthea Lau-Ooh, you should go cook up some pasta now, if you haven't had it in awhile!

  8. yummmm i love extra sauce too.. haha because i love everything saucy and i love dipping my bread into whatever sauce i'm eating too!

    the hello kitty exhaust pipe is adorable..

    hmm.. how rude!! gezz.. tips are based on service.. they are not something that should be expected! and that person obviously does not deserve a tip her service is appalling.. and i use to work in the restaurant service industry!!!

    i've visited the man repeller blog before.. she has a lovely blog.. but i tend to really only follow blogs where i have a "relationship" with the blog owner hehe so i don't really follow "big" blogs so to speak :)

  9. i forgot to add mostly because i don't feel a connection with the blog owner.. enough to continue to go back haha.. sorry i tend to think things in my head.. and not say or write them hahaha

  10. Lisa-I know what you mean. I prefer following blogs, where I talk to the people and it almost feels like you've got a friend in them. That's one of my favorite parts of blogging-the chance to speak to people from all over the world! Aah, you're so right. Tips are for good service not for people accusing me of murdering unicorns! XD

  11. My nails are soft mint green at the moment. I find it's one of the main hues I turn to during the toasty summer months. So serene and refreshing at the same time.
