DYI- 1990's jean shorts

After searching the never ending racks at the Goodwill I found these old 90's jeans which I have been desperately looking for to make some shorts. This was a project I had on my to do list and thought I'd share the easy steps. 

I'm excited to pair these with a crop top, or a basic white T tucked in. They remind me of Saved by the Bell :)

e.l.f. Haul The place to shop if you want a great deal! Love this website, when I shop online I usually make big purchases because the prices are unbeatable and the quality of the products are just amazing. 

So I went a little wild here but I didn't spend much compared to what a bulk like this would normally cost. Even if it were just by Cover Girl I'm sure I would have spent double. 

The shadow palette was a gift for my purchase. It was a very nice surprise! I love how vibrant the colors are. 

Out of everything my favorite item is the Pink Gem Eyebrow Brush/Comb. I brush my eyebrows everyday after I fill them in so it will be put to great use. 


Sigma - Make me Cool - 12 Brush kit in Aqua

I cannot explain the amount of excitement I have about this purchase. I have probably been wanting Sigma brushes for about 2 years now but since they are so expensive I had a hard time committing to this purchase. 

However, brushes are an investment.. if you take care of them they will take care of you by giving you a long life of usage. Here is Sigmas Make me Cool 12 brush kit in Aqua. 

The texture of the bristles on these brushes are absolutely amazing. They are so soft! I'm extremely anxious to put them to use. The leather case they come in is so convenient, you can just set them on top of a dresser for easy access not to mention how adorable it looks. The clips on the top makes them easy to travel with as well. So happy I can finally say I'm a Sigma brush owner :D

And as a gift for my purchase they gave me a travel sized blending brush!

You like my mustache?

I know I've done a horrible job at keeping up with my blog, and unfortunately I don't have a good excuse. I've just been busy/lazy :P Anywho.. Hopefully I can get back into the groove of things.. I have a couple things I want to share with you guys. Nail tutorials, products, etc. I'll start off by sharing this cute nail art I did with the famous mustache. 

What I used:
China Glaze: Flip Flop Fantasy
China Glaze: Frostbite
I used a dotter to make the mustache.

Holiday Nail Art

Hi dolls I recently saw a nail art in a Avon book that I thought was so cute and perfect for the holidays. I decided to try it out and do a little step by step tutorial on how I did it. First here is what I used: 
1.) Base coat
2.) Top coat
3.) Milani Nail Lacquer in Black Cherry 
4.) Milani Nail Lacquer in Gold Glitz (My favorite polish right now)
5.) Tape
6.) Scissors 

Ok so I started off by applying my base coat. 
Then I cut little strips of tape in the shape of a triangle. 
I applied the tape to my nail with the point away from my cuticle.
I applied two coats of Black Cherry and waited for it to dry.  Like so..

When it dries take the strips of tape off slowly so the nail polish does not strip. 

Then with Gold Glitz I filled in the part of the nail that was bare. This is where it gets tricky, when applying the polish use the brush sideways. Do the strokes with the end of the brush parallel to the lines of the polish towards your cuticles.

Continue to do this to all of them. And don't worry if you make a mess, you can always go back and clean it up with a flat brush and pure acetone. I applied two coats of Gold Glitz then let it dry for a couple minutes before I applied top coat. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this and if you try this out let me know if the steps helped you. 

Here is the finished look.

DIY- Ribbon bracelet

Yesterday I was in my crafty mood again. I made a couple bracelets out of simple things I had around. This in particular was made of some ribbon I bought for a dollar at Target and an old rhinestone chandelier earring I no longer wear. I cut the chained rhinestones off the earrings and sewed it to the ribbon.
