Eyeko Polishes, Round 1

Hello my lovelies!

It’s been really unfortunate that I’ve been traveling for work so much that I haven’t had time to do decent (and regularly scheduled!) posts since October. Finding a work/life balance has been especially difficult given the travel schedule I’d been on. As the New Year approaches, I’ve been wondering whether that will pose a new opportunity for success in that direction. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure the stage my company is currently in won’t make that easy. I already have another trip overseas looming in early 2011, plus other trips to China again, I’m sure.

The other thing that make this situation unfortunate are all the photos I took just before all the crazy traveling started. For example, the swatches I have in this post are the first set of Eyeko polishes that I ordered. It’s been so long since I got and swatched those, that I already have another small set to swatch and photograph when I get back from the business trip I’m on right now.

Anyways, obviously I’m pretty happy w/ this set since I’ve already gotten another round of Eyeko polishes. If you’re not familiar w/ Eyeko, here’s a little blurb from their site:

Eyeko means LOVE in Japanese and is the brainchild of beauty innovators Max and Nina Leykind. Born in London in 2000, Eyeko has become the go-to-brand for the latest in make-up must haves. Part Brit girl, part Tokyo cutie – Eyeko offers WOW products that define sweet London style.

That pretty much captures the brand pretty well, I think. If you’re a sucker for cute packaging, you’ll totally be a sucker for this brand too! (Oh, and the fact that the formula is pretty decent helps too. These are all three coats w/ NO top coat, b/c that’s how I roll.)

What’d you think?

Why, hello there!

Why yes, yes I did realize I still had a makeup and beauty blog, why do you ask? Oh! Because I haven’t written a word in it since October? Details, details!

Well, those of you who follow me on Twitter (or who have a far better memory than I do), remember that I mentioned I’d be gearing up for a lot of travel at the end of October. Guess what? It was a sh*t ton of travel! I was supposed to be overseas at one of my companies plants in Asia from October 18-28th. I didn’t actually make it home until November 4th. THEN, I got on a plane on the 5th to go to Boston for some training for work. I at least got to take Mr. Entropy w/ me for that trip, so that was at least nice. The week after that, I had to get on another plane to visit a supplier in Oklahoma. That travel schedule was pretty crazy added to the jet-lag I’ve had to recover from resulted in conversations in the evening w/ my husband went like this:

Me: 7:30PM…It’s totally late enough to go to bed, right? Right?!
Mr. Entropy: …Uh, NO.
Me: You sure? It seems late enough to me…
Mr. Entropy: Sure it is-if you’re two years old!

I’ll admit it, he probably had a point, LOL.

Work gave me a little reprieve after that, but I’m on the road again overseas. This time I’ve got a little more time on my hands, so instead of napping (like I probably should be since I’m kinda tired) I’m typing up a new blog post that will post right after this one later in the morning (well, morning for you guys in the eastern time zone and later in the evening for me).

Meanwhile, I leave you w/ these kitty photos!
