ze peek 010

{In case you were wondering}

nails: Chanel Nail Lacquer in Rouge Noir No. 18

lips: MAC Viva Glam V lipstick

I had first raved about the Peek here. The last that crossed my mind was actually owning one; but of course I entered Nina‘s giveaway even with the knowledge that I hardly ever win anything. But the [blurry] photos taken above give away (no pun intended) the happy ending; I did indeed win – and the little disbelief-meets-victory dance in addition to a bit of freaking out ensued shortly. My obsession with emailing and adorable little gadgets like ze Peek have been fulfilled. At last. 

Oh, did I mention that I love Nina? She is one of my favorite bloggers – one who is gorgeous both inside and out, and has the most enviable hair. Love yah babes! (:


La C.

P.S.: I have this strange habit of calling people “babes”, “hon”, or “darling”. For your future reference, mes chéris.

    Nina DOES have amazing hair!

  8. 15 July 2009 3:07 pm

    That’s a cool thing to win, but why does the date on it say Feb. 12? I am really bad at setting the date & time on gadgets, so I’m assuming you hadn’t set yours yet.
    Nice lips, wish I had lips like that.

  9. 15 July 2009 3:32 pm

    diane: I haven’t peeled the protective cover off of it yet (;

    sexy. i think peek would be inspired to do an ad like that – it could totally be a part of a campaign that featured different customers and their market.

    it matches you so well, and you make it ever so chic. i hope i’ll be able to see it with you someday (soon)!

  36. 15 July 2009 10:51 pm

    OMG! Congratulations on your winning, I am sooo jealous!
    p.s. The nail lacquer and lipstick are solely fab!

  55. 16 July 2009 12:02 pm

    Dearest! Suddenly, I feel the need for a shiny new gadget in my life to pair with glossy black nails.. ahh.. the power of suggestion.. 🙂

    I do have that habit too.. trying to stop because it might make people feel uneasy but its a hard one to kick..
