Check This Blog Out

So on my hunt for new blogs to follow, I check the blogs I already follow to see who THEY follow. Sometimes we have similar interests so they like things I would like. Now on my hunt I fell upon this blog -- Kiss An Makeup --. Really love the layout right off the bat. A couple posts down she is doing a giveaway, the prize looks really gorgeous so I entered. Never really entered a giveaway before on a blog but what the heck.

Check out the giveaway here:

Glitter French

So I finally used the glitter I got at Michael's on my nails. I love how it looks, real bling & shine, but it was a mess! Glitter is the prettiest mess ever. I even knocked over the tube spilling a lot of it out but I managed to put it back, still, a MESS! So here is the pic, if anyone wants to know my process I will share the journey. Lol

Love love love.

And the mess I made.. 

What do you think, too much bling? Or just not anything special compared to actual glitter polishes?

Until next time,

My Other Hobby.

Hello cupcakes! Ha ha I dunno. OK so as much as I shop, which is a LOT.. --PS Just ordered a Deux Lux bag should be here in a few days ;D!-- I can't fill this whole blog with just shopping so I decided to share one of the other things I like to do.. my nails! Now compared to nail bloggers out here I am a complete newbie amateur but thats OK because I am just doing it for fun I know I am not a professional.

OK so some back story I started this just as a way to get me to stop biting my nails. Then I started experimenting with the art brushes and trying designs. I got more & more determined to make them look pretty decent and to get better at it. 2 years later I still do them. Take a break for 2 weeks or so once in a while to give my nails a breather, or when I run out of inspiration or patience. I have a system/pattern/signature style. I never do all just a solid color --Except on Halloween I had them black for my werewolf claws--, I always do the middle finger different from the rest even if its something slight --Because nail salons always did a design on the ring finger & I didn't want to be the same, & because my middle finger is seen the most :]--. I started taking photos at the 2nd or 3rd design, and I now have 80 designs. Gonna do my 81st tonight or tomorrow. :] I am gonna share some of my favorite designs because theres way to many to show all. 

So if you're interested in the pics....

New Kicks!

Excited! While going through my email newsletters I fell upon one from Hot Topic featuring a sale on Converse. --The only sneakers I wear anymore due to my non-leather policy-- So going in I expect it is the blah colors, or in huge sizes only.. but low & behold --whatever that means-- they had 3 of the ones I have been dying for! $20 a piece. All available in my size too! I thought I was gonna order and get an email saying SIKE. We are sold out. Tough noogies. BUT it didn't happen. So here they are...

Frowny face

I feel like a dork blogging to nobody.... :(

Combo Hauls

Okay so I got that Haute Look order I was waiting for, along with the American Eagle & Delia's orders. Then a few days later I went shopping at Mandee's again. Spending way too much. Lets just say I gotta pay it down before I can buy anything else. Bummer. :(. And today I went on a random shop spree at Michael's Craft store, K-Mart & Marshalls. Lots of stuff to share! YAY!

--Click the hearts for their website, if available--

Lets start with the Haute Look order I was dying for.
