Today I decided to do my nails. I have been wanting to try out this marble design for some time now, and I finally got around to doing it today 🙂
The tutorial is in the video below. Very easy to do, but I must warn you it is rather time consuming because you have to make a different “marble water” for each nail (and each nail comes out differently of course) so it takes patience, however the dry time for the nail is less than 2 minutes so I guess it all evens out. Her’s is much better, I’m sure after a few more practices mine will look as good as hers but I don’t think it turned out too bad for my first try 🙂 Imma wear my nails in public proud! LOL
Hope you like 🙂
Today is Wishlist Wednesday!!! There are so many things that I want and so many other things that I think I need! So many, in fact, I know my blog will continue to have content based on this fact alone! LOL.
The Huetiful Hair Steamer. I hear such good things about steaming not only your face, but your hair and this great item does both. Steaming your hair helps with breakage and split ends and honestly it just seams like it’s very relaxing.
Sigma Makeup brushes. I have been longing for these for a while. I really need new makeup brushes and the Essential Kit is perfect for me. I like to wear makeup, but I’m no professional but quality goes a long way. For those of you who are professionals of the like…the cool thing about the Sigma is you can also build your own kit
I love these Toms! The great thing about Toms is that if you buy a pair of shoes, they give a new pair of shoes to a child in need. Walk in comfort knowing that you have given back! What a way to strut your stuff! HA!
First off…this picture, to me, is every bit of awesome. I love the color and the simplicity. You can purchase this lovely work of art from Susie Harris she has great ideas and I just love her work. One day, one day I will be able to create things half as lovely. In the meantime…I will purchase this for my house one day soon (my wish).
Ladies this purse is fabulous. The BCBG Sophia Leopard clutch complete with leather trim and a detachable metal shoulder strap. It even has a smart phone pocket. <sigh> I love it. It compliments any going out look.
When my nails are done my hands feel fabulous. I just want to touch things so to show them off. I am especially proud of my nails when I do them myself and for New Year’s Eve, I got my inspiration from this fabulous photo:
I thought these were so awesome. I like the white base and silver polka dots. I decided to remix it just a bit and here is my turn out:
I was proud of myself. It was my first attempt at a polka dot nail design. Don’t worry, I did get rid of the polish on the skin before going out on the town!
Hope you all had a fabulous New Year!
It’s a new year and I am exited about what is to come. Although I really don’t know what is ahead, I do know that I am making some new commitments and I am really exited to see them play out.
One thing I want to do new this year is projects. I have found myself surfing the web a lot lately and reading a lot of magazines with creative ideas that I want to try. I consider myself someone who is crafty, but not because I come up with ideas myself, but because I am inspired by others to create things. So, this year I’m going to take the ideas that I have been saving on bookmarks and pintrest and bring them to life. Living it up in the real world. Books on my “read list” will be cracked open. I just want to do a little more.
As far as my natural hair adventure, I am rolling strong. I have found what works for me and I continue to see so much progress. I absolutely love my hair. I can remember being a teenager wanting my hair to be as healthy as it was when I was younger, but no matter what I did I could not obtain the health or the length that I wanted. I will continue to grow in this area as well and record my progress and share what I stumble upon with all who may be interested.
Basically what I am getting at is this:
I am evolving and as a result the purpose of this blog is going to evolve as well. I love to write, but I want to make sure its fun, interesting and relevant to those that stop by. I want you to have as much fun looking through my site as I do writing, As I discover and try new things that I find, I will share with all of you and hopefully you will NJoy as much as I do.
What you will find here are lots of fun crafts, inspiration and ideas on everything from hair, fashion, beauty and style.
