Nails of the Week and identity theft??

I'll start this off with a thank you to JYZ for mentioning me on her award on her page =)

Anywho, so I've been a little busy lately with work (as usual). I've also been in a "spring cleaning" mood, even though it's fall. I've been rearranging my room, things from work, and pretty much everything... and I'm even working on myself (hitting the gym three times a week and eating healthier). So I decided to get one of those nutritional shakes and hit up ebay because it's hard to find places that ship to Japan. Well, it's been weeks and I haven't seen my package.

Fishy? Well get this, I went on to cherryculture to buy some NYX lipsticks and my card was declined, I thought something was wrong but I ignored it and thought of it as a sign not to buy things (it was like past midnight so I was sleepy anyway). Then, I went to the grocery store to buy stuff for dinner and again, declined and a message came up to call the card company to confirm my identity or something. Well it turned out someone got a hold of my info and made online purchases! I don't know how much it all came out to be, but apparently it was traced back to Greece, Norway, and Sweden. wtf, right?? The shakes I ordered were from the UK... So I need to wait like 3weeks for my new card =( and I can't use the ATM either in the mean time. Talk about inconvenience... What's more is that is having a 25% off everything sale =(((

anyway, here are my nails for this week. One hand has a black manicure, and the other is white. I saw this in a picture and thought it was simple and cute!

So anyway, I'll leave you guys with, please make sure you are careful when making online purchases. I always felt like "yeah these things happen, but it won't happen to me", though I know that's stupid. 
I thought I was being careful and I always check the reviews of the seller... Anyway,

Hope you guys are having a great week so far =)

my "come on Japan" pic of the day

I was out checking out shoes when I saw this sign. I honestly didn't even know what they were trying to say and read the Japanese writing and busted out laughing.

It basically says feel free to ask the staff for your size... but that is NOT what you'd get from that...

 Seriously, "please ask staff for help" would have been enough and that's not too hard (... especially when they learn English at from grade school -> high school... smh)
