    The result was awesome. I can't stop eating them. They won't last long at all.

    So, I added 2 tsp powdered sugar to the chocolate and I used 85% dark chocolate. I also added a small dash of cinnamon, about 2 Tbsp spiced rum and about 2 Tbsp vanilla extract all into the chocolate.

    Día de Muertos Cookies. Sugar skull sugar cookies.

    I picked up the cutter/stamps in my recent trip to Brighton. This is the first time I've ever used cookie stamps. I think I got the hang of it in the end, but does take a bit of practice.

    Every spring/summer I suffer when it's warm/hot a little because a large majority of my shirts have long sleeves, bar the tshirts. I can't wear tshirts to work obviously. 

    The problems comes in with the fact that you can't get nice summer shirts in black. My clothes is black 99.9% of the time or very dark shades. Summer clothes doesn't come in the dark pallets I prefer.

    So, instead I've taken it on myself to make some instead. This shirt was an experiment and was made without an actual pattern. I do have a wonderful pattern on the way, but I have been reading a lot on making your own patterns. So I gave it a go.

    I made many mistakes here, but I adapted and modified and changed  The result is far from perfect but I'm happy with it.

    I saw some swatches recently of Nfu Oh polishes and I fell in love. The one on the left is 51 and the one on the right is 52. They are from the Opals collection and they are amazing. 

    I usually don't pay over the odds for polishes because I don't think expensive means good, but these are definitely worth it. These are beyond your average glitters or flakes.

    I'm sure that by now you've all realised that leaving my nails in a normal condition is something I just can't manage. So yesterday after I posted the pictures of the blue I took it off so I could see what the red looked like. 

    So, I put the red on and it was lovely and my nails stayed like that for several hours with plans to take pictures for you today, but a few hours passed and I just couldn't let them be. I just had to play.

    What you see here is me not being satisfied with normal. So I present to you my retro 2-tone nails. The red is another in the Barry M Retro collection and is a lovely true red with that slight metallic shine to it. Another classic Hot Rod colour come to life.

    Base: Barry M (Retro collection) - Tainted Love

    So I had a request from a friend to make a dice bag for her, (it's a gift for her friend). She requested something Lovecraftian so I set about searching for some appropriate fabric and I succeeded. 

    The Cthulhu is the outside and the tentacles are the lining. I am so in love with this fabric.

    Today I tried something that I've been wanting to for some time. I don't think I've ever researched something as much as I have for this.

    BBQ Pulled Pork

    I had many options and many techniques to choose from. I chose the type of texture and flavour profile I wanted and settled on a plan.

    Last night I I did a very basic dry rub.
    Sea Salt
    Smoked Hot Paprika
    Mexican Oregano
    Black Pepper
    Cumin
    Garlic Powder
    Chilli Powder
    Dried Chilli flakes

    Today I popped it into the oven to cook. First at 200 C to brown it, then I covered it and turned it down to 125 C for about 5.5 hours. I kept checking it every hour or so to see how it was doing and check if it was going dry. It wasn't and I was very happy with the progress and result.

    Afterwards I made a BBQ sauce using essentially the same spices as the rub with a couple of additions.

    English Mustard
    Red Vinegar
    Cider Vinegar
    Dark Brown Sugar

    So, shred, mix, eat. This was a roaring success. I'm glad I bought 2 pork shoulders now.

    This mani colour scheme was inspired by my friend who’s signature colours are green and purple. So this was an ideal time to break out the green polish and get it all sparkly.

    I only own 1 green polish and I’m glad it’s this one. It’s such a wonderful metallic dark green. I need more Sinful Colors polishes though I think.

    (Forgive my artsy photo. Playing with a new camera lens)

    So this morning when I got up for work I checked the weather to see if it was again going to be warm, because you just never know in England. It was, so I thought "Right, first day of sandals at work." Then I realised that I hadn't painted my toes.

    You've never seen someone paint their toes so fast. I grabbed the first bottle of dark fast drying polish I could lay my hands on; which happened to be the Rimmel purple I was wearing on my hands last week.

    Thankfully the 60 sec dry time that Rimmel boasts is actually true and I wore my sandals to work today, thankfully.

    Okay so this is the Nubar: Treasure I posted yesterday. It seems to be the most popular.

    It's rather sheer, so I applied it over a nice grape shade of purple. (Rimmel: Blue My Mind) and put a couple coats over the top. Boy is it sparkly and shiny and amazing. 

    The one thing you can't see here is that this fine grained purple holo-glitter has depth. It actually looks like it's 3D and not just glitter on nails.

    My new vacuum cleaner arrived today and it is awesome. Dysons may seem expensive, but they are more than worth every penny. I won't have to buy a new vacuum for at least anther 10 years, just like the last one.

    It may seem domestic to the max to be excited about a vacuum, but for me this is innovative technology. New technology shouldn't just be about the computers I use. 

    And I love new technology.

    As usual I'm a bit sparkly and again it was hard to take the shot. I know this is a little blurry, but the ring finger shows the second top coat best. The glitter coat is obvious, but the Nubar coat is subtle and you need a glare of shine to see it. It givess the while thing this metalic shine.

    New awesome keyboard is awesome.  Been using it for 2 days at work now and I'm very happy. The bend of the keyboard is much more subtle so it's a little more comfortable to use. The key angle is about the same so it still keeps your wrists at a natural angle.

    There is so much more room on my desk now too.  As you can see here I have the number pad off set as I don't constantly use it. 

    So basically, I love it. Now to get one for home. Work is paying for that one.

    Today has been hair day. It's not a short process to get my hair the way I like it, so I do it in stages to alleviate colour bleed.

    First the black on the back and sides with the top/front pinned up.
    Second is the bleaching of of the pinned up hair.
    Third is the red dye.

    Trying a new brand called Crazy Color, so we'l see what the results are.

    I've pretty much just created my own duo-tone. It's a little hard to see here, but depending which way my hand is tilted, I see blue, purple or the metallics of the Accessorize polish.

    I applied Barry M Cobalt then put a coat of the Accessorize Shade 38 that I bought the other day over the top.

    So in a pique of creativity I sought to make a better dice bag that you could carry all you need to go gaming. There are roll bags out there, I even owe one, but it's got some drawbacks. The first is that the dice pouch isn't big enough for a dice addict. The second is that there is no place to carry your character sheet or a pen..

    So here we have the first prototype of said new dice bag roll. The pocket for the character sheet is a smidge too narrow and I may employ a bit of velcro at the opening of the dice pocket. 

    Otherwise I'm quite happy with this. It can hold a significant amount of dice and at least 1 pen; 2 things I always need when gaming. Others may get by with less dice, but not me. I am a dice addict.

    The village fete was today and every year they have a table selling used books. Every year I scour the table and the boxes below it for something wonderful; and I usually succeed. This year there was less success, but success nonetheless. 

    This is a 1977 printing of Through The Looking Glass. The cover is embossed with this metallic leaf. The inside cover is filled with Alice and the interior has B&W and lovely colour illustrations throughout. It's a nearly perfect condition and only cost me £1.

    I saw some swatches recently of Nfu Oh polishes and I fell in love. The one on the left is 51 and the one on the right is 52. They are from the Opals collection and they are amazing. 

    I usually don't pay over the odds for polishes because I don't think expensive means good, but these are definitely worth it. These are beyond your average glitters or flakes.

    Base: China Glaze - Liquid Leather
    Top: Models Own - Purple Haze

    This my first China Glaze polish. I was nearly out of black polish so I though why not. It's a very shiny black.

    Home to myself for nearly 4 days. 

    That's 4 days of staying up late, sleeping in, playing games and making sweets.

    I see bacon maple fudge and honeycomb in my future.

    It didn't work as a lining, but it has worked well for an outer pattern fabric.

    I present to you tentacles and silk brocade dice roll bag. This will be one of the first to go in the shop.

    I've just made these and put them in the fridge. I made some very important changes though. The chocolate is 85% Dark because yum. I also added vanilla, cinnamon and spiced rum to the chocolate. The chocolate is very bitter, but the rest is very sweet. So this should balance out very nicely.

    So, today's food experiment is over. Time for crafts.

    I bought more nail polish. I know, shocker. How could I resist Barry M's little retro collection though? Anyone looking for good shiny slightly metallic primary colours should grab these.

    Base: Barry M (Retro collection) - Tainted Love
    Top: Models Own Pro - Diamond Clear Top Coat

    The blue is very blue and slightly metallic. Like you'd see on the old Hot Rods. In some light it looks purple even though which is lovely.

    The top coat is part of Models Own Pro line which is 3 Free. I mention my top coat specifically though for one reason; it smells. I know all polish smells, but this smells good. It took me a bit by surprise if I'm honest, but I like it.

    I've done it. I've taken the plunge and created the etsy store for the dice bags. So if you were tired of seeing me talk about them, too bad.

    Because I love all of you so much, I've created a little discount with the code GPLUSAPRIL 

    I hope you like them. The store is named Kokhim Noir and I hope to have more for you soon.

    I am a bookworm. To many this won't be a surprise. Following a conversation with +Ryan Northcott and +Christopher Helton I thought I'd share a list of the authors I've been reading recently. Books that I've devoured with gusto and think others really should be reading.

    Currently reading Jasper Fforde - The Woman Who Died A Lot (Thursday Next series)

    Ben Aaronovitch - Peter Grant Series
    Simon Morden - Samuil Petrovitch Series
    Jim Butcher - Codex Alera Series
    Walter John Williams - Dagmar Series
    Gavin Smith - Veteran Series

    All of these authors and the listed series I've read in completion or the most recent of in the last month or so.

    A wonderful care package from my friend +Paul Neubauer  in the States. I feel so loved.

    I can now make all the corn bread I need. And REAL Maple Syrup. You have no idea how much I would kill for maple syrup.

    Look at the riches of my hunt! My victory is evident in the lushness of the spoils.

    The red and the purple are Mirasol Alpaca/Merino/Silk. The variegated Silk/Merino from Louise Harding.  Yes it is as soft and shiny as it looks.

    Well other than sorting out twitter, I've got Mint all installed and configured. Not sure what I think thus far. I kinda miss the Unity bar on the side of my screen. 

    I might have a look at other flavours. Any suggestions.

    The new red is a bit sheer like the blue was. So I put a simple red base down first and it made the colour really pop. And of course a little sparkle.

    Base: Rimmel Lycra Pro - Heart on Fire
    Top: Miss Sporty - Red Tango
    Sparkle: Models Own - Ibiza Mix
