A night with Passion.

For those of you who have not read The Empty Suitcase Prjoect, please read (and watch the videos) first!

(Ignore my fatness!!)

It has been 2 years since Jeremy ‘Passion’ Manongdo visited London. Luckily he decided to come back this year! Jeremy is now doing a small tour called ‘The tour that could’, where he will visit; London, England; Gothenburg, Sweden; Oslo, Norway; Arnhem, Netherlands; The Hague, Netherlands;  Brussels, Belgium; Bern, Switzerland; Lyon, France; Roissy en Brie, France & back to London, England. The tour started on the 31st of March in London.

I purchased a ticket and went along to the show on Saturday. It was amazing.

I have been listening to Jeremy for about two years now. I’ve always thought he has one of the best voices I’ve heard, but he is something else live! When he was singing, the whole crowd was silent. He has the ability to make everybody stop and just listen.

He gave, what was to me, an emotional show. He performed; 32, Well Done & A Reason for Everything, which are all songs written for/about his family members. It was amazing to hear where his inspiration comes from since he inspires me so much.

He also sang some falsetto! He nailed Climax by Usher! Every girl (some of the guys too) went weak at the knees! (Including me! haha)

After Jeremy performed (with a demanded encore), a meet and greet was set up. Almost everyone in the venue waited behind to see him. I decided to wait until the end because then I feel a little less like a fan-girl and a little bit more like a professional (Yeah right! I just wanted more time with him!). I was shocked and super happy when he recognised me! He remembered my blog about the empty suitcase project and because AJ Rafael tweeted him to say that I am sweet (Eeeek!).

Anyway, I asked him if I can interview him next time he is back and London (the end of April) and he said yes! So, that will be coming to my blog early May! =]

So, now (more than ever), stay tuned!

Review: OPI Nail Envy

When I was in school, I had the best nails! My nails were long, strong and grew really fast. Then I started working. Working in retail ruins your whole life. My nails would break, they got really thin, they would peel.

So I neglected my nails for about 3 years because I gave up hope.

Then I started to watch nail tutorials on YouTube and a lot of Americans were talking about Nail Envy.

I am so happy I found Nail Envy! I purchased a sample from eBay and I am so happy I did. Within two applications, my nails were stronger, they were growing and they just looked healthy! After I finished the sample, which lasted just over a month, I decided to buy the full size OPI Nail Envy. I purchased the original (green writing) and the Matte (blue writing).

I recommend everyone to use this. If you have strong nails or weak nails, Nail Envy is amazing. The Matte version even makes it possible for guys to wear it without worrying about looking like they have a manicure!

In the directions it says to apply two coats of Nail Envy before applying a colour (if you want) and then put one coat on every other day, then start again after a week. I only followed this for the first month. When my nails started to get stronger, I only applied one coat rather than the recommended two coats.

There are also other versions of Nail Envy that are recommended for certain nail problems such as; Nail Envy for soft & thin nails, Dry & Brittle nails and sensitive & peeling nails.

The only problem with Nail Envy is the price. I didn’t have a problem with paying for them but when I told my sister how much I paid, she thought I was mad. But only until she started using it! I also found a great offer on Amazon! So look around and compare prices before you buy Nail Envy!

Hope it helps you as much as it helped me!
