things that Kitty likes

About Me

Kitty (as her BVI friend fondly calls her) is a 32-year-old girl currently living in Tornado Alley who loves designer bags, nail polish, and food among other things. She loves all sorts of animals especially cats, penguins, and ducks. She cares for a male Brittany Spaniel with her husband.

She graduated in 2004 with a BS in Accounting, a BS in Computer & Information Management, and a BS in Marketing. She was admitted to the University of Oklahoma to pursue dual graduate degrees (MBA in Business Administration with specializations in Energy and Marketing & Supply Chain Management and a MS in Management Information Systems) and was enrolled in Fall 2008 but had to put that on hold with the needs of her awesome job.

In terms of cooking, she enjoys baking the most but rarely consumes her own baked goods (which doesn’t bother the recipients of the said baked goods). She likes sweet desserts but would take a savory main or side dish anytime over desserts. Her slight allergic reaction to peanuts has never stopped her from consuming one of her favorite chocolate treats, peanut m&ms. Note, “never stopped her” – so yes, peanut m&ms have been confiscated from her before.

Kitty likes shopping and has a bad habit of collecting things. As obviously highlighted with this blog, this includes designer handbags and nail polish. Other collection of hers includes formal dresses (think prom or evening gown wear), bikinis (even when she can swim but can’t tread in water), silver gemstone and costume jewelry, TY Beanie Babies, Sanrio stickers, Hallmark and various Asian stationery and cards, beauty items from various brands, and Victoria’s Secret lingerie (from specific lines in 2006 to 2007 mostly).

Her lifelong dream is to be able to cook for a lot of people and to be part of a program that helps clean up and save oil-slicked penguins. Yes, insert laughter here. She has always gotten strange looks for this. She visits the Philippines, her country of birth, every few years and stocks up on Asian brand nail polishes.

  1. You know, I knew there was a reason I liked you! I adore penguins too, and ducks, and kitties, and anything cute, really. I’ve been known to have my husband stop the car just so I can take pictures of something cute!

    Also, I know you may like peanuts, but a slight allergy can turn into a severe one with repeated exposure. As much as you enjoy them, you really should leave them for the folks who aren’t allergic. (Says the person who gets migraines from pepperoni, but still eats it.)

  2. Haha! I know! I rarely touch anyhthing peanut related anymore. Last time was when someone made me a peanut butter milkshake (cause they were out of chocolate syrup) out of kindness cause I was helping them out with cleaning their pond. I didn’t even think about it until I finished the small cup. My ears itched a little about an hour later but that was it (thank goodness!).

    • I uploaded them to photobucket and wordpress allows me to post the size as is I suppose. I did have to shrink it down to 90% for it to show up right centered though. Not sure how blogspot works with pictures but I’ve always fancied that the pictures are clickable to enlarge!

  4. Hi Kitty:

    You must get asked this question so often, I love your Hugh swatches but why only just one finger that is polished shown at a time?

    Love your blog.

    • It’s my personal belief that I can show more detail by focusing on one nail. That’s the primary reason. Secondary is I have 2 fingers that can grow into a length that I feel comfortable capturing in pictures. A lot of times, my nails are of different lengths on the same hand cause I’ve broken then for one reason or another. And when I mean broke, I mean really short!

  5. Dear Kitty,

    I had entered my name for the giveaway which will end on 14th February. Unfortunately I will be travelling around that time and won’t be available to receive the shipment. So please cancel my entry for the give away.

    Regards and best wishes,
