what shall i wear today?

Two things that make me happy: new books and nail polish. I had a David Jones gift card to use up thanks to one of those bank ‘award’ schemes where they’re all like “heyyyy you’ve racked up a couple of thousand on your credit card, here, have a measly $50 gift card on us” (better than nothing I suppose). So I used it to purchase this pretty little book featuring the most stylish bunny around – the one, the only – Fifi Lapin! I also picked up a new O.P.I nail polish in Do You Lilac It? Do I? Why yes, yes I do. Also, does anyone else think that a Fifi Lapin themed collection of O.P.I nail polishes would be one of the cutest things ever? That’s a collaboration just waiting to happen. I mean, if Shrek can have his own range of nail polishes

    I've also been tempted by a similar shade at Sportsgirl, although I should really start wearing the shades I own πŸ˜›
    Nice buys! I like free stuff πŸ™‚

  10. lizzie November 28, 2010

    A Fifi Lapin / O.P.I collaboration may well be the reason I exist.

  16. Francesca November 28, 2010

    Thanks for your comment babe πŸ˜€ I am following you back πŸ˜€ I love OPI nailpolish.. I thought I would buy one to see what all the fuss was about because $20 for a nailpolish is silly but then… I discovered that it doesn't chip.. or rub off.. and is like the best nail polish ever!

  27. Hello! Passing by your blog. I hope we can be good friends. Can we follow each others blogs?? (><β™₯β™₯β™₯)

  28. Kaisha November 29, 2010

    Ohhhh I have OPI jealousy! Perfect choices x

  29. soph (owl vs. dove) November 29, 2010

    @Mez @Jes: do you think they take ideas from outside sources? I'd feel a bit random doing it haha. I guess I won't know till I try hey?

    @jess: thanks for following.

    @Blackswan: I think I'll have to do a little book preview/review soon!

    @Hannah: I definitely recommend it. It's just too cute to pass up.

    @lizzie: amen to that.

    @Hannah: it is! I highly recommend it.

    @ching: I didn't do much to these ones – just enhanced the lighting a bit. My photos just kind of turn out that way?

    @danica: I'd recommend this one. O.P.I has a fair few lilac types. I found myself umming and ahhing a bit. Good luck on your hunt for one!

    @Francesca: same!

    @gee: me too! Sometimes I think that would be one of the funnest jobs – making up all those names

    @rosanguyen: exactly!

    @ΡœΚ€Ι¨sΡ‚Ι¨ΠΈΙ‘: I'll be sure to check out your blog. Thanks for stopping by.

  36. Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark November 30, 2010

  37. Tink In My Closet November 30, 2010

    Such a pretty collaboration this would be:) I love that bunnyx

  38. Amanda Fernandez November 30, 2010

  39. chow (heart+bleecker) November 30, 2010

  40. Kennedy November 30, 2010

    opi is my favorite nail polish!

  41. silvia November 30, 2010

  47. Barbara December 1, 2010

    that nail polish is way too cute! i want it!

  48. Mo Pie, Please December 1, 2010

    That is a really cute color of polish! New books and nail polish make for a very happy Mo, too. And yes, a Fifi Lapin themed collection would be an instant best-seller! That Shrek line isn't so great so they should definitely move on to Fifi!!

    PS – I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog, come by to enter for a chance to win 2 linocut prints!

  49. Julia December 2, 2010

    that nail polish is gorgeous! : )

  50. Betsey December 19, 2010

    i've never heard of fifi lapin — but it seems super cute! πŸ™‚ and OPI is always amazing!
