MAC and Rodarte

This weekend, the MAC/Rodarte collection has been dominating both Twitter and Blogger.  And not for a good reason.

Prior to this weekend I was relatively uneducated about the issues in Juarez, Mexico and how this has been so-called used as inspiration for this collection.  But the mass of blog posts has, to me, bought to light this subject.  I am not going to go into my personal opinions of the matter here, but I highly suggest reading Charlie @ Lady of the Lane and her fantastic take on the topic.  Her blog also lists the other bloggers who have expressed similar, but slightly differing, opinions on this.

Moved house.... Hello Internet!

I have recently moved house, from a shitty student heap to a gorgeous student house that is stunning!  Anyway, today Virgin finally arrived and we have internet again!

I am really enjoying the summer weather, and my new lovely housemates :)

My acrylics have gone! Before I could get to a salon when I was at the mans, they started coming up at the sides, and after a few glasses of vino I started to pick them off (YES YES I know its bad, save the lectures!) so I'm back to my stubs, but full of motivation.... Long talons by Xmas is the new goal ;)

How is everybody?
Loving the summer?
