4th of July Nails

Hey guys! I am here with a nail tutorial!!! My nails are navy blue and after you paint them the blue color you desire, you take a dotting tool, and if you don’t have one, you can use a toothpick, and just make random white dots!

On my index finger, I used a red to make a heart!

And that’s all! Super easy and cute!!

Bringing Color to Everyday Life

If you are in ceramics and or like this kind of stuff, it’s extremely fun! My idea came from being aggravated at my cups for taking sooo long to make so I took an easier route and decided to experiment with glazes. Glazes are a special kind of paint that when fired at hot temperatures, seal and protect the clay to be used ( in this case, the cups can have liquids in them and you won’t get poisoned! 

On to the cups! If you have a pre-made cup, good for you! If you don’t, then you take a slab and blend it into a cylinder and add a bottom to it and blend that on and then a handle! If I could, I would take pictures but it’s awkward to do that at school! 

After you fire the clay, You put on a base coat of whatever color you want  (I used Mardi Gras which is a white with pebbles of blue that explode to get a splatter like effect)  and after, you take a bunch of different colored glazes and dip a paintbrush in water and then in the glaze and splatter it all over the cup! ( In some cases, you need to flick the paintbrush with your finger). 

You then fire it again to get to this amazing product!

The colors are much brighter in person but i am extremely proud of these!

I love being creative and this is just me sharing one idea to you all!

Glade Expression Review

I am here to review 2 products from Glade that i got for free from BzzAgent. The first product is the Glade Spray and the Second is the Glade Diffuser.

Image

The Glade spray that i got is in cotton and italian mandarine and the combination of smells is delightful! It feels like you just did fresh laundry with a mix of oranges. It is the homey-est scent i could imagine. It reminds me of back home. When i was small, oranges was a special treat we only got around Christmas. Not only does the scent smell amazing and bring back good memories, but it also does a decent job at retaining its smell. When you spray a room, the smell is strong and delightful. 

Image

Now on to the Glade Diffuser which i got in Lavender and Juniper Berry. First, the name is adorable. The smell of plants and berries is the best! The lavender is relaxing and comforting while the berries are sweet and inviting. The diffuser is incredibly easy to put together, it takes less than 30 seconds and as soon as you pop it into place, it begins to smell. At the beginning for the first 2 or 3 days, it is extremely strong and i have a sensitive nose but it still smells good. Furthermore, at the beginning, it is centered around the diffuser, but i begins to spread out over time. I am very pleased with it because it has lasted over 2 weeks and it still smells good! 

All in all, i was extremely surprised at these Glade products because they were pretty cheap and they were extremely good. I would definitely recommend buying them and i’m in love with the scents i got. 

Rating out of 10: 9.3

Ipsy January Bag Review!

Hey guys! 🙂 This is the review for the January Ipsy bag. 🙂 This is my second month doing it and I love it! If i were you guys, i would get an account! Basically, what you do is pay 10 dollars and every month, you get 4 to 5 sample products but a lot of the times they are big samples or just regular products. It’s a great way to try new things and you don’t have to get one each month!

So let’s get started!

Image

This is what this month’s bag looked like! It was super adorable!

ImageThese are the products that came with it!

Image

This would get a 10 out of 10. I absolutely love it. Not only does it smell heavenly, but it also moisturizes pretty well 🙂

Image

This hairspray is my favorite. It feels a little stiff in your hair but it does the job of keeping your hair in place through humidity and everything!

Image

This is the argon oil and it works pretty well. It is not breaking out my face and it is moisturizing my face and my eyelashes. My hair is too short to apply it to.

Image

This is the nail polish that came with it and applying a coat to it looks very nice, below i will post a picture of what it looks like on my nail. However, I didn’t let it dry before i applied a second coat so it’s all over my nails.Image

This is the last item and it is a small shader brush. I was so excited for this but it ended up being a little bit of a disappointment. The brush is cool. It has indents in it to place your fingers in and that is what one stroke looks like. I was super excited but once i used it, it didn’t look that great. I was a little disappointed.

Overall, this was a great Ipsy Bag!

Yours truly.

Getting Organized- Self-Improvement

A couple weeks ago, i was randomly searching on ebay when i found this lovely box (which can be found in multiple colors) and decided that it was so cheap, that i would buy it. Side note-most of the time, i am pretty messy but sometimes i get in a mood where i have to get organized and clean or else i can’t be productive, and those are the times i over organize. So, i bought 4 of these cute boxes for myself and 2 for my mom and we both love them! 

These are so cheap, cute, and convenient! 

Image

This is in my bathroom where i used them to put my make-up. I wish i would have shown you the before picture because it is egregious. Seriously. I had make-up all over the place and couldn’t find anything in the limited time i have to get ready in the morning ( since i like to sleep in late) and NOW it’s super organized! I looove it 🙂 

Image

 

You see how cute that is! The little cupcakes and all! It’s so classy and adorable! 

 

Are you wondering where the 4th box is? 🙂 ( since there are only 3 in the picture) 

    WELL!!! I used it on my desk. It has my pencils and pens, markers, index cards, etc! I JUST LOVE it! ( i didn’t get to take a picture of it yet, sorry) 

Yours truly.
