Weekly Sum-Up #48

Another Sunday. God, I hate Sundays! Hate them more than Mondays. Belive it or not, it's true. Let's start this weekly sum up and get in a better mood with some photos of my furry ones. 

Aishila. And the basket kitty is back. She caught a cold again, but her weight is good...

Arya. Hiding in a bag. I bought a toy for Vita and it came in this bag. Arya saw it on the floor and voila! Cat in a bag. With big 'puss in boots' eyes.

Bombi. The model.

Here's something for my slovenian readers. Aler.si is where I buy food for my cats. I buy 10 kg at the time and get it cheaper than I would by buying smaller packages. They adore pretty much any Sanabelle food - I bought 3 packages with 10 kilos of dry food so far and the furry ones eat it in less than a month. I order the food online and all orders over 40 € are shipped for free. I also get testers of Sanabelle food with all of my purchases. I recommend!

I got this cute cat shaped box with my last order. It looks like Arya. =D

Bombi loves to eat, but was almost happier to get a box... To sit in. And when he got bored, the food was his comfort. Cats and boxes.

My nails of the week: first I wore Essence Fateful Desire by itself for a day and then I layered it with NYX Girls Gilded Glitter

Then it was time for something darker. I went with a England Bridal Veil...

... and layered it with Hits Zeus. The holographic goodness.

I found my Beauty UK Earth Child eyeshadow palette and did a look with it. I also used Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin and MUA Mega Volume mascara.

Half gloves aren't exactly warm, but they look cool. Kind of. =D I got these... via Ebay. Who would have though, right! ;)

Me and my BF had a very interesting trip to Graz. We had a flat tyre in the middle of the road... Took care of it and moved on. =) 
Flat Tyre

It was so worth it. Graz is just gorgeous. I can't even tell you how completely I fell for this city. I'm almost envious of all the residents there. <3 b="">Rathaus

Ikea is a really nice place to shop. It's cheap and buyer friendly. I got a Helmer I already told you about, three Antoniuses, a clothes rack Rigga, and another drawer unit Lennart

I love pasta in any form and with just about any sauce. My favorite is pasta with tomato sauce, but carbonara comes pretty close as well. These are fusilli a la carbonara
Fusilli Carbonara

How I do it: Cook the pasta a la dente and drain it. Cut the pancetta into cubes/slices (whatever you prefer) and put in a pan with preheated oil. Let it cook for a while. When the pancetta looks 'crispy' enough, add sweet cream (or double cream) and let it cook for a while longer. Add a bit of garlic powder, pepper and some salt, but be careful since the pancetta is usualy pretty salty itself. Add grated cheese and wait until it melts. Add pasta and mix it with the sauce. Remove off the heat. Mix an egg yolk with some milk and pour it over hot pasta with sauce. Mix it and you're done! P.S: I added some parsley too.

Posts of the week:

Feline from Alizarine dares you to Stay the Night. Would you? I totally would, but I bet the grittiness would make me go insane. 

Four beauiful shades by Picture Polish swatched by Kitties26 from More Nail Polish. I pretty much love them all. 

After seeing these swatches of China Glaze Wagon Trail by Deborah from Love. Varnish, chocolate and more, I immediately went through my helmer drawers and see if I still own it. I do. *sigh of relief* I do know I don't own Wingdust Collections Night Fury though. Loqi's nails with awesome holographic goodness - Color Club's Angel Kiss

a England in Dorian Gray and The Polished Perfectionist's undying love for it. I love it too. 

Anna from Pretty Digits tried out the new MUA Fluffy Nails in Fluffy Bobbin. I'd pick this shade as well. I think it looks great. 

Color Club Age of Aquarius by Kyky from Moodiness Takes It's Toll. Looks like H&M Bella's Choice so I won't search for it on Ebay. Just yet. 

Elsa from Like a Candy Shop and her perfect nubbins. I mean, how is it possible that every single nail polish shade looks so awesome on her? Exhibit A: Essence Stuck on You. Exhibit B: Chresy no. 055

Maki from Candy Glaze swatches a gorgeous Shaka nail polish in Deep Passion. Amazing! While you're there, check out this Alessandro Go Magic! Nail Dots. Finally! A substitute for OPI Black Spotted. 

We've all had stained nails at one time in our life, right? Here's a post by Spektor's Nails on How to Remove Nail Polish Stains. She also posted swatches of two polishes from the new Essence Hugs & Kisses trend edition: More Than Words & Dreams For Sale

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There
    was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

  6. We get our cat food from Zooplus. It's based in Germany and they have sites in different countries in Europe. I seem to recall they have the cat food brand as well. The food is a lot cheaper than at the vet's or supermarkets.

    1. Zooplus has a slovenian site as well, but is called Zoohit. The price of the Sanabelle food is a bit higher there than in the store I buy it. =) But I do agree, the prices of the food at the vet are sky high.

  12. PRva manikura mi je ful všeč. Pa da ne omenjam mačkic. :) In hvala za sharing Dite, nisem sploh vedela, da se podaja tudi v te vode. Komad mi je sicer obupen, ampak je ona perfektna. :)

  13. Thanks for linking <3

    Arya made my day. Either she's statically charged or she's super fluffy!

    If you ask me Lennart looks a bit like a Mini Helmer. What are you planning, young lady? :P

    Oh, and your half gloves are hot! I also need some.
