Polka dot nails.

Standard

Hey beautifuls! Soaarrry for missing from blogging for a bit. It has been a very busy week.

But I here I am.

So, I did something special with my nails today. I am only a beginner, so be gentle with me. 

Image

Polka dots yay!

Image

It was actually surprisingly easy.

I used these two colours, mint green and mud purple.

Image

The ring fingers I used the purple, and while those dried I did two layers of the mint green.

By the time I was done with those, the ring fingers were completely dry.

Image

I saw this tip on one of the many nail tutorials you can find on youtube. Just take a bobby-pin and use one of the ends as a dot-er tool.

Image

So, I just stuck it in the bottle of polish and gently made polka dots on the nails.

Super easy!

I also wiped the bobby-pin clean so that I can use it again next time I do my nails.

 

October Favourites

Standard

Yes. I know I am a little late, but I do have some favourites that I would like to share. There are a few beauty, some kids stuff, and a few others!

Oh, almost forgot to ask. How are you doing today!?

ImageImage

Yes, yes I am rocking the large glasses. My contacts were irritating my eyes. Bleh. So on to the October favourites.

1) The first thing that is my favourite is…

Image

Witch Hazel facial toner. I got this a while back, but recently I have been using it often as a make-up remover. I know that isn’t what it is made for, but it works very well for me. It smells good and feels good on the skin! I think I got it from a health store for roughly $4.

2) Next up we have another beauty item… or rather items…

Image

I am kind of cheap, so when it comes to make-up I rather not spend a whole lot. When I saw these at the dollar store I thought “Well, why the heck not try? I mean they are only a dollar!” I am so glad I did. The mascara leaves my eyelashes dark and long with out clumping (unlike other NAME-BRAND mascaras). The eyeliner leaves a nice thick line of colour, stays on all day, yet comes off easily when washed. Oh, and did you know that the L.A. Colors brand is cruelty free!?!?!

3) The third thing on my favourites list is also a makeup…

Image

It is the Maybelline Baby Lips in the colour “Cherry Me”. Since the cold weather has started my lips have been terribly chapped. This nourishes my lips while giving me a cute red tint. It also smells and tastes delicious.

4) Okay, okay.. we are done with beauty products. Let us see what is up next…

Image

Oh yes, this scarf. It is a mint coloured scarf that is soft and warm. Plus I bought it at a garage sale for 25 CENTS!

5) My fifth favourite is a children’s book. I LOVE children’s books and this one ADORABLE.

Image

My daughters had me read this book over and over and over again. It is about a little pumpkin whose biggest dream is to be a jack’o lantern on Halloween night.  The art is beautiful and the story is lovely.

6) This favourite is a movie that we borrowed from the library..

Image

When I was a little girl, I loved the Laura Ingalls books. In fact I still have the set I got for Christmas! It is some what silly that although this movie entertains my daughters some what, my husband and I are completely glued to it. I suppose it just brings back memories of childhood.

7) Candy, that is all I have to say!

Image

This candy in particular!

8) And the last is something I also bought from the dollar store…

Image

The colours are so autumn-y and it is perfect to take to class and refill with water. It was roughly $3, which isn’t bad I guess. BPA free, and can hold hot or cold liquids. I have yet to use it for coffee and tea, but believe me… I will.

So those were my October favourite!

What are yours?
