Nails #37 using Silhouette, Gold Medal, & Fuchsia U!

Hey guys! Today is Monday and time for another nail post.

I’ve been experimenting with my thin nail tape, trying to see what different shapes and figures I can make.

Thumb, Index, and Pinky Fingers – Sinful Colors (KJC) ‘Silhouette’. This has to be one of my favorite purples. It’s a darker lilac with gold shimmer. img_0415

Middle & Ring Fingers – Sinful Colors ‘Gold Medal’. This is one of my go-to accent nail polishes..just a simple gold.

I’m going to try and explain how I made the shapes using nail tape. For my middle finger, I took 2 pieces and formed a triangle. Then laid 2 pieces horizontal. I used Sinful Colors (KJC) ‘Fuchsia U!’. Then peeled the tape away.

For my index finger, I took 1 piece of nail tape and placed it diagonally across my nail. Then made placed a piece vertically and horizontally. Used the same color and peeled away.

I like the end result. It was a little challenging but always up for one.

Blog Goals for the New Year!

Hi guys! I hope you all are having a great start to the New Year. I thought I would just jump on here and do an update and share my goals for this blog.

First off, the whole month of December I was going blog crazy. I posted multiple DIY’s, different nail looks, and I shared a few book reviews. I really want to get on a schedule with my postings. I think what I’m going to do is Monday & Friday’s will have my weekly nail looks even though lately there’s been multiple because I’m trying to catch up. Wednesday’s, I will post a book review or a book related post. Thursday’s will be a DIY post. That leaves Tuesday & the weekends free. I may occasionally post something for those days like favorites or something.

My goal is to continue sharing my love for nail polish, crafting, and occasionally reading with you all! I enjoy writing posts and I’m learning as I go.

Like I mentioned above I’ve been posting a lot of posts one after another trying to catch up. This year is going to be on schedule!

Last but not least, if there is something you would like me to include in my blog, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

Happy Thanksgiving & update!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all that celebrate it! I spent the day with my family, aunt & cousins. I also tackled making 2 pies from scratch or I should say almost all from scratch. They were a hit even though it’s the first time I made them.

Anyhow onto the update..

I’ve got a few more nail art posts coming your way this week & next. I might also throw in a few others. I’m trying to post about different things and not so much nails all the time. Like I mentioned in an update post prior to this I’m leaning away from makeup lately. Today was the first time I put makeup on in months! Whoo. I’m going to be doing a book review soon on the book I’m currently reading, almost done. I’m going to also try and share some christmas diys and maybe a few recipes I find and make. Lately, I’ve been trying to get into more baking things for the holidays.

So I think that’s all for now..just really wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Pinterest Finds!

Hey guys! Since I shared some Fall ideas that I found on Pinterest I thought why not share some Thanksgiving ones? So I went on the hunt and found a bunch!

Turkey – So I found this pin that has a picture that explains how to cook a turkey, make gravy from the fat and how to carve it! My number one thing is make sure you thaw it for the right amount of hours! 24 hours for every 4-5lbs. Here’s the link.

Thanksgiving Dessert – Who doesn’t like rice krispies? I found a pin that shows you how to make them shaped & look like turkey legs! The one thing I would do that the pin doesn’t, is try to dye the rice krispies brown to look crispy. Here’s the link.

Thanksgiving Decoration – I found this easy & simple looking diy candle holder idea! You take a glass cylinder..place a candle inside..fill the cylinder halfway with popcorn kernels. Last but not least tie a bow with straw. I love this..if you were to do a medium one and two smaller ones, it would look great as a table centerpiece I think! Here’s the link.

Thanksgiving Craft – Have kids coming over and what to keep them occupied while waiting for dinner? I found this pin to make pinecone turkey’s. It looks like all you need is pinecones, craft feathers, google eyes, and felt to make a nose. These are just so simple and cute! Here’s the link.

Quote – I couldn’t make a pinterest post without adding a quote. I found this quote especially for Thanksgiving. Always be thankful for the things you have..not just on Thanksgiving but every day of your life! Here’s the link.

Favorite TV Shows!

Hey guys. I’ve been doing a lot of random topic posts lately, mainly because I’m trying to figure out what exactly I want my blog to be about. I’m thinking nails, books, and lifestyle things. Anyway, in today’s post I’m going to share the tv shows that I’ve been addicted to the past month or two.

60 Days In – i actually got hooked on to this show by my boyfriend. it’s about a jail in Indiana that needs re-structured..basically the inmates are starting to take over it. the sheriff ends up bringing in regular people that haven’t done any crimes to go undercover and basically be inmates for two months. 8 people. the show just finished season 2. i wanted both seasons and i don’t think there with be another but maybe in another? not sure.

Little Women LA, Atlanta, Dallas, New York – i’ve been addicted to every spinoff of the little women series. LA & Atlanta just finished seasons but Dallas just started a week ago and i’m hooked! New York hasn’t came out with another yet..i’m hoping they do though. all series is all about different little women living life..there is a lot of drama but sometimes it’s funny. i love all the seasons.

I Love Kellie Pickler – this show just finished it’s second season also! i love watching her..her accent is to die for. her episodes are basically themed, i guess is how i would say it..like a show was about going to Japan? i think, tonight’s episode was about her attending a Chris Kyle memorial event. i just love her..every episode can make you laugh!

Teen Mom – i have watched every single episode & spinoff from this series. i’ve seen the original teen mom, teen mom 2, & 3. also every 16 and pregnant. if you’ve never heard about this show, 4 girls got pregnant at the age of 16 and shared the story about being a teen mom. there’s several different girls..i don’t like all of them but still love watching them all!

The Fosters – i got hooked on this show from scrolling through netflix one night. i’m now on season 2. it’s about these 2 woman who are married to each other and they are foster parents & have adopted the ones they’ve fostered. well, they end up taking in a teen named Callie who just got out of a juvenile home. she ends up sneaking away to get her brother out of the bad home he’s in. they end up getting into a bad situation. anyhow, Callie ends up getting into more trouble as the episodes go on..they leave you hanging every time. i’ve stayed up way too late watching them, haha.

Worst Bakers & Worst Cooks in America – worst cooks in america has several different seasons but worst bakers just finished it’s first season a few weeks ago. in these series they find the worst cooks & bakers and they are coached by professional chefs & bakers..they one by one get eliminated and then the ones left cook/bake for judges..whoever has the best dishes wins $25,000!

Halloween Baking Championship & Holiday Baking Championship- i love these series too! they pick people that are good at baking to be on the show..they end up contending to win money..each week someone gets eliminated until there’s 3 left and then they choose the best one at the end.

Flea Market Flip – this show is about 2 teams going to a flea market with a $500 budget. they have to buy 3 items that fit a category, fix them up and then re-sell them at a flea market. whatever team makes the bigger profit wins $5,000.

Sorry for such a long post but these are my favorite shows currently.

What is there to love about Fall?

Hi guys! I thought I would write a post about Fall and what I like about this season..it’s one of my favorite.

  1. leaves changing..I live in Michigan and our leaves started to change a few weeks ago but this week they are so bright and colorful. I love watching the leaves just fall and wind down to the ground. I love how they layer the yard with multiple colors and make it pretty!
  2. chilly air..I love when the feel in the air changes..it get’s just a little more chilly each week. It makes me feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
  3. fall smells..I don’t mean I like all the fall smells only a few. I don’t like the smell of leaves burning or any pumpkin or cinnamon because I’m allergic.  I like the maple, apple, toasty smells more than anything!
  4. just the cozyness..I love feeling nice and cozy at night when the air drops..it just brings the family all together again after a summer full of fun.

What’s your favorite thing about Fall?

October Goals.

Hey guys! I normally don’t make goals that I want to achieve by the end of the month but I felt like it was something I needed to do. Lately, I’ve just felt that I need to get a move on and achieve somethings.

My first goal is to advertise my wreaths on a few local Facebook groups I’m in. I don’t think I’ve mentioned in my blog at all, but I make wreaths. My name isn’t out there much at all and so I’m working at building it up. One of my lifetime goals is to own a small business one day, selling wreaths. I’m a shy person so it’s taking me a while. I’m hoping next year to go to a few craft shows which will help a lot but I’m struggling with my shyness.

Second goal is to join a few Facebook groups that deal with wreaths..like tips on making some, good places to find materials. Just any group that deals with wreaths!

My third goal connects with the second, I want to join a few more local groups to advertise on…I’m trying.

Those are all my business goals I guess you could call it..even though I’m not near a business level..haha.

My personal goals are pretty simple. I just started a new book and I’d love to finish this month and start a new one! It’s called Elenor and Park..pretty good so far. I also want to try and remember to post a positive or inspirational quote on social media. I know there’s a lot of people struggling and if I can make someone happy..or lighten up a little bit, It will make my day. My boyfriend of six years has really been down lately and it’s helped open my eyes a bit…to help be a positive person to some that could maybe use a lifting up.

I also have a few blog goals..I’m going try to stay on track! My normal posting schedule is Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Last month, that didn’t work out..so I’m trying this month! I’m also going to try and throw a few lifestyle posts in..not so much nail related this month but there still will be some. I might add a new weekly or bi-weekly post about what I discovered on Pinterest. Since the season are getting colder, I tend to lean more on Pinterest for recipes, decor, ideas..everything.

So I’m going to leave off on that. Chat later!
