NMM: Picture Polish Wysteria
I adore this beautiful lavender colour, wisteria, by picture polish. This is 3 coats with Sally Hansen top coat. I nails are slowly growing back and I’m back at the squoval shape (or I’m getting there).
This is definitely one of my top 5 favourites out of their collection. It’s the perfect colour for spring! The formula for this was great, it applies smoothly and is opaque enough to use just 1 or 2 coats but as always I did 3.
In addition to sharing with you this colour, I also wanted to inform you that Picture Polish has some great everyday deals which you can read more about here. They really are a steal!
I thought I would share with y’all something that I’ve been playing recently: a little action roguelike called Delver. The game first piqued my interest several months ago, when it was in very early alpha and didn’t yet have a website; I downloaded it then and was charmed by the Minecraft-esque visuals and simple, no-explanation-needed premise. It came to find again recently, so I decided to check out the progress. It’s been polished and expanded significantly from when I last played, and needless to say I’m very satisfied.
You start off looking into a mysterious hallway, just begging you to go in. What could await you there?
A HOST OF FEARSOME AND POWERFUL ENEMIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
DIRE BAT, AND ASSOCIATE
THE THING THAT I DIDN’T GO NEAR
The dungeon is randomly generated, and your objective is to head deeper and deeper into it, finding increasingly powerful weapons and gear, fighting off hordes of monsters, and avoiding traps. As for what’s at the bottom…
I’ll leave that for you to find out. Not because I wanna tease, but because this is a game I don’t want to spoil for anyone. I’ve been playing the up-to-date version for the last few days, and while individual playthroughs don’t last all that long regardless of whether you win or lose, the randomly-generated aspect gives the game amazing replay value.
One more thing though: when you die, you die. As in, your save file is gone. It’s like Minecraft in hardcore mode.
So, while I wouldn’t say the game in actively difficult (although I have yet to beat it completely), I would still recommend treading carefully. You don’t wanna die to something stupid, like a Magic Asshole.
Personally, I expect very good things from this game in the future.
Chapter 631 of NARUTO - Shipper Version - Review/Rant
Okay, my last review of 631 was a non shipper version, this one is a shipper version. So let’s get started!
First off, I would like to be honest with you. I regret that I did not stay up and wait for this chapter to be released. But I was so tired that I couldn’t stay up anymore! >_<
When I woke up on Wednesday morning the first thought in my mind was, “OMG, the new chapter of Naruto is out!” I snatched up my tablet and downloaded it. Once I began to read it, I seriously thought I was going to have a heart attack. I literally fell to floor and was screaming internally when I read this:
“Thank you for helping Naruto recover. ….Are you Naruto’s girlfriend?”
Girlfriend? Girlfriend? Girlfriend? *Girlfriend echoing in my head*
Then Naruto says, “Uuuummmm, uhm… Yeah! That’s more or less of it!”
Let me tell you. this right here says a lot and pretty much stabbed all NaruHina shippers in the heart, the fact that Naruto said, “yes” to Minato’s question, shows how much he really does love Sakura.
NaruHina arguments/rants on this panel:
“Naruto was hesitating. He could have just said yes.”
INVALID. Okay, do you know who is behind him? Sakura. He’s being very careful with he says. He knows if he says the wrong thing then he’s going to get whacked. In this case, he said the wrong thing and he got whacked. It wasn’t like he was looking toward Hinata or anything as he was hesitating.
“Naruto doesn’t know what his dad meant by girlfriend! He thought Minato meant girl who was his friend.”/ “Minato meant girl who is a friend.”
INVALID. People are translating this from Japanese text, there are words that mean friend and words that mean girlfriend/lover. Girlfriend meant lover in this situation.
“Naruto was joking around with Minato.”/ “Minato was joking around with Naruto.”
INVALID. Back from Sakura’s confession, Naruto told her not to joke around about feelings. Why would he joke around with own feelings?
Minato seems like he’s a very serious person, he doesn’t seem like he’s the type to joke around. He wasn’t laughing or anything. Plus this is his son, I’m sure he doesn’t want him to be with just anybody. He heard what Kushina told Naruto when they were about to die. He was pretty much serious.
“Naruto is a total dumb*ss! He held Hinata’s hand and ”toyed” with Hinata’s feelings. Hinata confessed to him! She’s done so much for Naruto and he still loves Sakura!”
INVALID. Naruto is not obligated to return Hinata’s feelings. Okay? Let’s just get that straight. Naruto “toyed” with no ones feelings, Naruto did not say he loved Hinata. I don’t know how many times we have told NaruHina fans that the hand holding was not for romance. It was not for showing that Naruto’s feelings for Hinata were changing. This chapter confirms it was a grateful, respectful gesture. AND a transfer of chakra. Nothing more, and nothing less. Period, end of discussion.
This argument also shows how much most (not all) NH acknowledged Naruto, his feelings, and how much they cared about him and his feelings.
“Minato doesn’t know Naruto!”
INVALID. What the hell does this have to do with anything?! And how can Minato not know his OWN son? Plus he’s been with him (inside of Naruto) from the beginning to when he resealed the nine tails, so I’m sure he knows him to an extent!
“Kushina will come back, see Naruto and see how much he is like her, then change her mind and tell him to find someone like his dad.”
INVALID. Kushina has come back, she told him to find someone like her, she has told him how he is similar to her, she didn’t tell him to find someone like his dad then. Why would she do that now?
NaruHina’s theories, Hinata=Minato and Hinata=Kushina. So which is Hinata like Minato or Kushina? Well, it’s definitely not Kushina. Minato confirmed that Sakura was like Kushina. Plus Hinata and Minato are not similar.
Now that, that’s said! Let’s move on shall we?
Once Naruto says yes to the question, Sakura of course hits him and shouts, “Shut up!! Save your energy!!”
NaruHina arguments/rants on this panel:
“Sakura still loves Sasuke.”
INVALID: None of us know what Sakura feels towards Sasuke at this point and time, Plus, even if Sakura does love Sasuke still, Sasuke doesn’t love her and cannot magically fall for her in two-three chapters. This was proven for naruHina.
“Yeah, Sakura was really happy when she heard that too! She hit Naruto for saying she was his girlfriend!”
Partially Invalid: No she wasn’t happy about it, but she didn’t deny that she was his girlfriend.
Back when they were younger and Konohamaru said that Sakura was Naruto’s girlfriend she made it clear that she wasn’t:
(I love how Konohamaru is calling Naruto, ‘Bro.’ XD)
This time around, she didn’t deny that she wasn’t Naruto’s girlfriend! She didn’t say ‘yes’ either, but this was a step up.
Then this part
which KILLED me.
I saw this was like:
I was so HAPPY that it was confirmed that NaruSaku=MinaKushi! I knew it, all NaruSaku fans knew that Sakura=Kushina! Honestly, how could people even deny she was?
“Minato has not seen Hinata, he’ll see her and be reminded of Kushina!”
Then Minato goes onto say: “Take care of my son.” or “I leave him in your capable hands.” with a smile… *Sobbing* He trust Sakura with Naruto!
Then finally at the very end of chapter 631 this:
That smile… The gentle smile Naruto only gives to Sakura…. Oh gosh this gave me so many feels.
NaruHina arguments/ rants:
“Naruto was just smiling that team seven was back together. He was not smiling at Sakura.”
INVALID: He was smiling at Sakura, it shows him looking at her in the panel above!
Ah, what a beautiful for NaruSaku. <3
Overall: I give this chapter a 10/10.
- Naruto is still in love with Sakura.
- Sakura’s true feelings for Naruto. (SOON. O_O)
Thanks for contributing to NaruSaku week Kishimoto! :D
Taylor Swift Charms the Crowd
With so many female artists writhing across the Billboard stage in barely there dresses and their male counterparts strutting back and forth with exaggerated (and obnoxious) braggadocio, the infectiously adorable and fun staging to the beginning of Taylor Swift’s performance of “22” was almost jarring. But T-Swift—who went on to pick up the big Billboard 200 Album award—is clearly onto something. Once she navigated the backstage halls, she sang the opening verse from the big stage, with the entire audience already out of their seats, unabashedly singing and dancing along to the refreshingly chaste—and catchy—earworm.
