I'm allowing myself one big purchase a month. July's was treating my family to dinner (which is actually this Sunday, but I'd set aside the money for it last month). Family here is defined as: immediate family, grandpa on my dad's side, one family of cousins+aunt.

August's is a new pair of shoes!

Shoe on foot on chair:
brown sneaker on my foot, propped up against a stack of chairs

Shoe on foot on magazine on counter:
brown sneaker on my foot, propped up on the kitchen counter

Shoes on basin:
brown sneakers propped up against a basin

Brown sneakers; wibbled between the brown and the red, but the brown looks all-around nicer, and matches up with almost anything, which is good because I'm going to be wearing it every day/with everything. It's slightly less casual than my rubber shoes, which I've had to use because I haven't had anything to replace them with (until now ^_^), and which I can now reserve purely for gym/running.

Yayyy I have new shoes!

(Next month I want RAM, and the month after that maybe I can buy feminine sandals :p)

Ah, I love that song.

Bought some nail polish during lunch break. Plan to paint my nails later ^__^ I don't really like much makeup (makes me break out, hah), tends to be crazy expensive (at least, the kinds that don't make me break out... as much), and I don't ever use it all up.

But nail polish seems like it could be safe. Also, I just found some brands sell tiny vials, which are very inexpensive: 10 pesos each for the smallest size (that's approximately 20 cents, converted to USD ;-)). So there's plenty of opportunity for experimentation, and if I don't use it all up, well I'm only wasting a little money/little polish.

I wanted a light blue, or some fresh-looking green, or a deep maroon, but most of this brand is various shades of red/pink/weird-garish-glitter.

So I got: black (eggplant color?), super black (why didn't they just call the black "eggplant" and this "black"?), super white, platinum, and love (light pink shade. I'm not sure what I think about love as a light pink shade *doubtful*)

Will play later!

So [livejournal.com profile] foxfirefey did this nifty program for generating visualization of network linkage from fdata. I volunteered to be a guinea pig, and got this! (I LIKE IT)

I want this chair.

*grabby fingers* Want want want.

On the other hand, I already achieve a similar effect by placing my laptop on my bed, curling up around a pillow, and then hugging the side of the bed while I work.

Oi, but still. *grabby grabby fingers*
