Happy Family Day!

Hope everyone is at home with their families spending some quality time together. Especially since it is freezing cold outside, why not be at home in the comfort of your blanket and a warm cup of tea?

P.S. The Tory Burch store at Yorkdale Mall is having a promotion - 25% off $400 spent and today is the last day. :)

Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year 2013 - year of the serpent!

Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve. This could be taken metaphorically to mean that a Snake could never have a problem with his family starving because he is such a great mediator, making him good at business. Or it could mean that a Snake would be willing to sacrifice his possessions, something the Snake has a lot of, in order to pay for his family’s food. Any way it is interpreted is representative of the Snake’s character and is a measure of the value he puts on his material wealth. The Snake is keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise.

Julep Nail Polish

Rebecca had recommended me to sign up to this website called Julep. My reference code is 8187487 if any of you do decide to sign up. As you know, I am a nail polish junkie and appreciate quick drying, chip resistant cost efficient polish. Julep? What is Julep? It is nail polish that is made free of toxins and the color variety is outrageous.

I just placed my first order and was able to use a coupon code "COLOR2012" which made my total for 3 polishes 0.01 cents - amazing!!!! All I had to do was pay a one-time shipping fee of $3.99 and all orders placed thereafter are free of shipping charges. These nail polishes retail at Sephora for $17.50, which are way too pricey for nail polishes (well, at least I think so). But for 0.01 cents + $3.99 = $4 for 3 polishes, it is definitely worth the try.

Every month thereafter you can purchase a set for $19.99 or skip the month so your card does not get charged. I currently await the arrival of my first Julep package and will let you know my thoughts on the actual nail polish itself.

The Good Wife

I will begin by expressing how much I don't have any interest in politics. Not only do I not have any interest but I also don't have any knowledge because that is how much politics bores me.

I have a keen interest into our law and medicine but never actually pursued either or. I, however, still try to obtain as much knowledge possible to consistently be able to learn and understand. When I got my first traffic offence ticket (I tend to run red lights and not make full stops when making a right turn on a red light) and had to appear in court (I off course hired a paralegal) I sat there and had no idea what was going on. After the case was finished, my paralegal and I exited the court room to where I stood dumbfounded and asked him so what happened? He looked at me with a strange smile and said we won - haha! What a dummy I am. Its quite absurd, I feel as if they speak a whole different language in there.

Recently, I began watching The Good Wife. I occasionally saw it on television and would watch the random episode and I wondered how this legal TV show had anything to do with its name "the good wife". Once, I started, I was drawn in immediately - what a fabulous show. I can say I obtained a lot of legal knowledge watching this series and the story line never gets lame. It was a good substitute when Suits was on hiatus but now I think I am more intrigued with The Good Wife.  The Good Wife she really is, however her kids, especially Grace really annoys me and Mr. Big (aka Mr. Florrick) how I love him.

Groundhog Day

Tomorrow is Groundhog Day... My fingers are crossed that he does not see his shadow!
What do you guys think? Shadow or no shadow?
