Weekly Sum-Up #30

I continue to be unconsistent - consistently. This is a sum up of my last couple of weeks. There's always something that keeps me from posting it - lack of time, nausea (which happens a lot to me lately) or just plain old sleepiness.

Let's start with my most important topic. Aishila. She's OK, but she still has problems with her respiratory system. Water in her lungs doesn't just go away... She hasn't been at the vet since they took the stitches out. And I'm not planning on taking her back to the same vet anymore. She's getting something else at the moment...

I really want to thank Monika (Aelin) for telling me about the EnergyVet and their line of alternative natural veterinary products. I'd never find them without you, so thank you! And a big thank you goes to the people at EnergyVet as well - thank you so much, Vitezslav, for all your help! 
I contacted EnergyVet after I found out about them and they read my Aishila post. They consulted with their vet and told me which products would be best for my little one: Gynevet for her lungs and Imunovet for her immune system. Not only that - they decided to send me the remedies for free. Just because they saw how much I care about my little monkey. Yes, I cried when I got their message.
EnergyVet Imunovet & Gynevet

The deal was: I was supposed to give her 2 drops of Gynevet and 2-3 drops of Imunovet twice a day for 3 weeks. She handled Gynevet just fine, but after I gave her Imunovet she got all foamy and vomited, so I stopped with it immediately. She's only getting Gynevet and I'm not sure if it's helping, but she's not getting worse either. I'm planning on taking her to another veterinary station after the treatmen with Gynevet is through (on June 12th). She keeps on rolling... and I'm not gonna give up either.

Moving on to the beauty related stuff. Someone wrote a comment on my Fibers.com post saying they're puzzled by my naked nails. I know this might come in as a shock, but in the last few months I rarely wore nail polish. Having a nail polish blog doesn't neccessarily mean I'll always have my nails polished and in perfect condition. That's faaaaaar from the truth. 
I did start to polish my nails on a regular basis a few weeks ago. I still feel best with dark polish on. My latest choice - BYS Black Satin (one coater!).

Some of you mentioned American Apparel in Mount Royal looks like Chuck by Essence.Yes, they're pretty close, but not dupes. Here's a comparison photo for you:

Urban Decay sold out. And I'm not talking about one of their newest products. I'm talking about the brand. I wanted to link you to the part of their site where they 'explain' it all, but they deleted it. They're basically saying they decided to sell their products in China, which means their products will eventually be tested on animals. Their reason for this step is to penetrate the China beauty industry and change it from within. I say - bullshit! They built their brand on being animal friendly company and now they're throwing it all away. For a couple of bucks. My one and only UD Vegan Palette has something written on it:
We don't do animal testing... How could anyone?
Too bad, but I guess money really does make the world go round. You can sign this PETITION if you don't agree with Urban Decay's decision.

This is my latest decorative beauty buy: Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl mascara and 2 in 1 Cuticle Remover Gel. I like both and if you want I can write a review of these products. Let me know.

I like being the photograph at events. That means there are no photos of me. Beside the one I made of myself while adjusting the camera.

Red roses which smell like rasberries are the best. Even when they look like this one day and wither away the other.

Recognize this face? It's the faceless man. Tom Wlaschiha. A German actor who speaks English, French, Russian and Italian. Besides German, of course. He'll be 39 on June 20th.

Posts of the week(s):

If you're into interesting manicures and beautiful nails (of course you are), then I advise you to check out Picchi's Nails.

Sophie from My Awesome Beauty posted some photography basics: this time she focused on aperture and shutter.

What do you get when you layer a flakie over fauxnad stamping over a magnetic polish? nailXchange can answer that. And she did. 

Ronnie from Bows and Curtseys makes awesome eye make up looks, but this one is the one I like even more than the rest. It's called Wistful Wonderland.

I'm Not a Lion is a shade from the China Glaze On Safari collection. I've seen it before, but I really fell in love with it because of Nail Stories and her photos.

Kittens at Purrrpolish are getting bigger. And there's polish as well.

Gradient manicure trend is still going strong. Of all the gradient nails I've seen lately I like this Vampy Gradient by Loqi from Love. Varnish, chocolate and more... best. It's so vampiresque and badass.

Wanna see a face with the lace? It's looks great on Azure from EyeGraffiti.

  1. I'm so glad you got so much support for your kitty! I hope she feels a lot better soon, even with not receiving all of the medication. She's an adorable creature.

    I read about Urban Decay, too. What an odd move.

    Jacqen H'ghar was the hottest in this series of GoT. Too bad we won't be seeing him again (if it all goes according to the books).

    1. Thank you, Odyssey! I agree with you, Jacqen was HOT. Too bad the show is over already. Well, the 2nd season. Now we'll have to wait 'till next year. *sigh*

    1. I say everything looks good on short nails, but you gotta be careful what colors you put on longer ones. Short nails FTW! =)

  7. I'm sending my prayers to you for Aishila. I lost my baby not too long ago to kidney failure, and I know how painful it can be having a beloved pet with medical problems.

  14. Oh gosh, it was my comment about the naked nails, I meant it as a sort of a joke, I certainly didn't mean to be harmful. Sorry if I offended you. I know you have a life and can't have a perfect manicure 24/7, nobody can :)
    Anyway, I am glad Aishila is doing fine so far. I hope she'll fully recover soon. And it makes me happy to read about the good people who helped you. It's nice to know there's still kindness in the world. Too bad we can't say that about UD. What a huge step back for them.

    1. =) I wasn't offended by it. Not at all. I just know it's kind of weird to see me with my nails unpolished - but it happens. No hard feelings here. =)

  15. Thanks for the nail polish comparison. I think I like Mount Royal even better than Chuck - what is a pity since I don't own Mount Royal.

    I send you and Aishila my best wishes for recovering soon (and completely). It sucks when your loved ones are in danger and you can't do very much but hope.

    Very cool that you're engaged as event photographer - which was that latest event? Not important, I'm just curious.

  16. Yey, them sent you the remedies for free!!! I'm so glad =D. I'm still praying for your baby, so don't give up!! Hope she'll be fine...

    About Urban Decay... I never bought anything from thid brand, and never I will... it's so frustrating, everyone who wants to sell their products in China will test in animals. So unfair! =/
