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?

Wax Melts!

I’ve always loved candles and just over the past few years I’ve gotten more into wax melts. I first started over buying from Scentsy and then I moved over to just buying wax melts from my local Walmart. You can find them normally for around $2 dollars there. I don’t really have a favorite scent but love light floral scents, bakery or candy scents, as well as holiday scents that don’t included cinnamon, pumpkin or spices. I’m allergic to a lot different spices and have just come around with not liking the smell of pumpkin at all! In this post I’m going to share some thing new scents that I just recently picked up and some that are just my favorites! They are mainly either Better Homes and Garden or ScentSationals brand.

  • Fresh Apple Orchard (BHG) – I’m a huge fan of apple smells and this one hits it on the head for me. It mainly reminds me of macintosh apples..perfect for the fall season in my opinion. It has a really nice scent throw..meaning it has a strong scent. Totally worth it. img_3252
  • County Fair (ScentSationals) – On the label, this one talks about funnel cakes and kettle corn. To be honest, it’s got a really sweet scent to it with maybe a hint of fruity-ness! I warmed this a lot this summer..and I hope I can find another. Scent throw is in the middle.

  • Wild Berry Cheesecake (BHG) – I’m not sure if this compares to the real smell of cheesecake because I’ve never ate it. You really smells different berries..definitely blueberry and blackberry, I think. The throw is really good..this is a favorite.

  • Peppermint Vanilla Macaroon (ScentSationals) – I expected a lot more out of this one. I don’t really smell peppermint at all just vanilla and a coffee scent. The throw isn’t good either..doesn’t smell much in a medium room. I haven’t tried it yet in a smaller one, maybe throw will be better. (LIMITED EDITION)

  • Apple Blossom Freesia (BHG) – I bought this one because it’s a light floral plus it smells really fresh and clean. Similar to a fabric softener fragrance! The throw is pretty good too.

  • Buttercups & Bluebells (BHG) – I’m horrible at remembering what flowers smell like so I’m not sure if this compares to this but what I do know is it has strong floral throw! If your not one for floral..don’t get this. I happen to love it. (LIMITED EDITION)

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!

Blog Update!!

Hey guys! I just wanted to jump on here and post a little update on what my posts are going to be based on the next weeks.

My posts lately have been all about the Kylie Jenner Collection with Sinful colors, I’ve probably started to drive some of you crazy with them..I’m just a little overly obsessed with them. I promise they will need within the next 2-3 posts.

I’m going to try and start posting more about lifestyle things like what books I’m going to read or am currently reading, monthly favorites, different holiday diy..and of course still nail related stuff. I’m steering away from makeup a little bit..I haven’t used mine in months!

I am going on a nail polish no-buy because lately I’ve gone crazy..whoops.

Anyhow, I’m going end it here but if you have any ideas or things you want to see..let me know.

Where have my posts been?

Hey all! Sorry I haven’t posted in like..forever! I ended up coming down with a cold and then got hit with allergies! Ugh, that’s the bad part about Spring but I’m good now. I’m going to try and post 2-3 times a week but since the weather is getting nicer I’ll be outside more.

This past week has been amazing! The week started off with some snow..I know snow in April but by Wedensday the weather straightened up. We’ve been in the 50s all the way to the 70s this weekend. I’ve been doing some diying which I might show you in a few posts, comment if you interested in seeing my stuff. I made a bird bath, golf ball ladybugs, painted a wooden letter and now I’m working on a bench made out a of crib! I’ve been busy this weekend and loving every minute.

I don’t have any new makeup products to talk about yet but I do have a few nail polishes that I bought, I’ll share them with you soon.

Anyway, I’m going to end this post here and check back in a few days for another post.

Chat later!
