Nail Art with Tape

To get the look you will need 2 colors of polish, a top coat, scotch tape, and scissors.

1. Paint your nails with a base color. Then you want to paint the tape with your secondary color.

2. When your nails and the painted tape are dry take the tape and start cutting your design and then adhere to your nails. I found it helpful to cut a bunch of triangle shapes out at one time before adhering to my nails. The shapes you cut will get stuck to the scissors. I just leave the shapes stuck there until I'm ready to put the shapes on to my nails.  Once your done with your nail art seal with a top coat.
This is such an easy way to get fun nails. I was inspired by some nail stickers I bought my daughter. although I'm not one for manicured finger nails, but my little girls love to do nails. I just do way to much artisty tartsy stuff for that to make any sense. I do however like to do my toe nails especially during the summer time. If you are wondering I am using Wet & Wild Did I Dye to Blond which I don't like so much alone. With other colors it works well and it really glows in naturally light but is just a little to transparent for my taste. Follow Me on Glitter from the Kardashian Kollection by Nicole Opi. Hard as Wraps by Sally Hansen is my top coat, as my Baby Girl pointed out because I don't read directions. It is really a bottom coat. However despite that I think it is a powerful top coat that will have your at home mani lasting for about 3 days, love it.

Tribal Wrap Bracelet Diy ReVamped

I came up with this simple way to make a tribal bracelet that's so popular right now. I've seen other tutorials on other sites. has a good tutorials you might want to try also. However they all involved purchasing items to make closures for the bracelet (a step I just did not want to do).  I had some of those rubber wristbands laying around the house and thought hey this could work.You could also use an old bangle bracelet, but I'm not big on bangles for all day comfort wear.
Supplies: glue gun, embroidery thread, wristband bracelet, scissors

1. Tie thread and knot. Proceed to wrap the thread around the bracelet.

2. wrap thread around bracelet. When you get to the end of the thread tie on a new piece. Secure knot by adding a small dab of glue. A little glue goes along way. I did n't even squeeze the glue gun. I just dabbed the tip of the gun on the knot.

3. Repeat stapes 1-2 until you have completely wrapped your bracelet. Use various lengths of thread switching up the colors to add interest.

4. When you 've completely wrapped thread all around bracelet tie the thread you first started with to the thread you finished. Cut the stray ends and you are done.

A dose of medicine.

I'm not one for celebrity red carpet fashion. anyone with a tone of money, good sense, and a personal stylist can look good. These are my favs who give me a bit of inspiration. I like seeing celebs who have personal style in their everyday life. I love the effortless style of Nicole Richie and Florence Welch. A few years ago I realized I love menswear. Ellen dresses better than any dude I know.
Subconsciously I might have gotten my love of sunglasses, hats, and long hair from Yoko Ono ( I only recently have gone short). I sometimes need to dress up a little and have started to style stalk Kate M. I've seen this Zara dress up for sale and I've been going back in forth about getting it. Should I?
