Golden Eye, Tags and Christmas Decorations :)

Hey everyone,

I hope that you all had a lovely week. It's one month until Christmas today, how crazy is that? I can't believe I have almost been moved out of a home an entire year. It is at this time of year, when I am getting excited for Christmas that I always have to step back and appreciate how quickly time flies. Life is what happens whilst you're busy making plans.

I got my bottle of Golden Eye by OPI in the mail earlier this week and I finally tested it out on Friday. This is one of the colours from the James Bond Skyfall Collection, it is such a beautiful colour that really captures the essence of gold on the hands. This is the best gold nail polish I have ever seen. It is the ultimate festive nail polish. I am considering picking up a second bottle.


OPI Goldeneye

I was also tagged by two wonderful ladies - Ellie from Ellalogy and Mandy from Make Me Up Mandy, to list seven facts about myself. So here they are:

1. I really enjoy long walks listening to music, but I have to force myself to go most days.
2. My name means 'One who is like God', which is slightly ridiculous because I am an atheist.
3. I really enjoy video games but I am not very good at a lot of them.
4. I would like to eventually move to a milder climate. WA is too hot for me.
5. I really, really, really love Doctor Who, and I have seen every episode of Desperate Housewives.
6. My curly, frizzy hair drives me completely mental on a daily basis.
7. I talk too much.


Thank you for tagging me and you should definitely check out both of their blogs if you haven't already :D

I also put up my Christmas tree this week and I wanted to share a picture of it with you :D


Yes there's a Totoro in our tree.


I got a new job this week which is really exciting and I know what my first paycheck will be going towards...

I hope you are all having a lazy Sunday :)

      Nars eye shadow duos are pricey BUT they are actually cheaper per gram than individual Mac eye shadows!

  10. So much amazingness in this post! First of all, I'm happy that you posted the seven things about you! I also enjoy going on long walks or runs (but not long ones haha) while listening to music, and they're such good stress-relievers, but sometimes it's so hard to motivate myself to get up and go! The OPI polish looks gorgeous - I have "The World Is Not Enough" and I love it. And NARS Kalahari is on my wish list too!!

  18. Golden Eye looks gorgeous! So many sparkles :)
    I really enjoy walking while listening to music too! That's how I get to/from school everyday. (It's sometimes the only thing I look forward to on those days hahaha.) Your Christmas tree is so cute, especially with the Totoro. If my family did Christmas trees, I'd make it completely Totoro-themed. :D
