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!!

Fabulous Hair/DIY

Hey Bloggers!

I am so sorry I have not blogged in a while. I have been so busy with school. I just finished AP Exams and took the SAT last Saturday. I am currently in the week of finals and I have the ACT this upcoming Saturday. I’ve been extremely busy and stressed but i decided to take a break!

I am so excited for this tutorial! My dear friend, Allie (aka allietheunicorn) and I decided that we wanted to buy real rooster feathers as hair extension! They look pretty fabulous!

We bought these from a sweet etsy shop!

The feathers feel nice but look even better!

1st, we took the beads that the feathers came with and put the beads in our hair using a flossing thread. We kinda struggled with this. (maybe i will post a video on how to do it, coming up soon!)

Then we put the feathers into the bead, which was really easy and used pliers to close the bead and secure the feathers!

The feathers are relatively cheap and fun to accesorize with. They will usually last up to 3 months and can get wet, curled, or straightened. It’s like real hair!

PLUS! It looks fabulous on short and long hair!

I really hope you guys enjoy this as much as I do!

Ipsy January Bag Review!

Hey guys! πŸ™‚ This is the review for the January Ipsy bag. πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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.

My party was a blast and i have to thank everyone who came! I had so much fun eating and dancing, it was definitely unforgettable! πŸ™‚

Image

Homecoming Week

Heeeey yall! So i am very sad that i won’t be going to homecoming because it’s at House of Blues, the place i hold dear to my heart! Plus, i’m missing out on all the dancing, but i decided against it this year.

Now back to the topic, for the homecoming week, we have days where the whole school, or shall i say only the brave and awesome people, dress up for different days. Monday was class color day, Tuesday was Tacky tourist day, Wednesday was fairytale day and thursday is going to be school spirit day! I will post an OOTD tomorrow so i decided to post the tuesday and wednesday outfit right over here!

Let’s begin: Because Allie (akaΒ http://allietheunicorn.wordpress.com ) and i were inspired to go to Goodwill together since we both love it and found some awesome clothes! We decided to get t-shirts from goodwill!Β Image

Allies Outfit includes: a shirt from Goodwill, my pants from a thrift store close to where i live, some long socks and some shoes! (i’m so generic because i don’t know where her shoes and socks were from)

Ari (ME): a shirt from goodwill, pants from a thrift store near my city, a hat from Clair’s (on sale for 5 $), white sandals from forever 21 ( like $12 ) and some hole-y socks that i got in Europe!

FAIIIIRY TALE DAY!!!!! So, for this, Allie http://allietheunicorn.wordpress.comΒ and decided to be matching fairies from Tinkerbell and Friends! I was Rosetta, the garden fairy, and Allie was Tinkerbell! To create our dresses, we bought XL tshirts from the mens section and cut out the shape of our dresses. Allie sowed hers by hand and i sowed mine in the sowing machine!

ImageTaken into account that this was at school, we had to be in “dress code” so we wore shirts underneath and i wore tights because mine ended being a little too short!Β ImageAllies outfit: Her dress is homemade with a shirt from goodwill, her skin-color pantyhose are from target, her wings are from the dollar store, and her gold shoes are from Kohls ( i believe)

My outfit: My dress is homemade with a shirt from goodwill, my pantyhose are from target (exhilaration), my wings are from the dollar store, my headband is from walgreens, and my shoes are from payless!

Your One and Only.

Ari. πŸ™‚
