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!

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.

Music

You know how we all love Pandora but sometimes wish that we could just listen to the person who we typed in. I know, i have personally experienced times where i didn’t like the music that was “similar” to the artist i mentioned so i found this AWESOME website:

neverendingplaylist.com

Basically, on this website, you type in any artist that you would like to listen to and BAM! music will continuously play, like on Pandora, but it will be from the same artist! Hope you find this website just as awesome as i do!

 

Yours truly,

Ari.
