Fall is here!

Hey guys! So today it officially felt like fall and it was heavenly!!! I absolutely love fall weather so I was excited to pull out my sweater and boots although everything I had was from last year, but its ok :) I wore a purple sweater (purple and plums are so in this season so I wasn't TOO out of style lol) that I got from Target on clearance at the beginning of spring, Big Star jeans, and Ugg boots. The jeans I got at a yard sale for............are you ready.............$1!!!!! The boots I got a good deal on at only $65 and I have wore them OUT! Just thought I'd share this quick little post with you guys as I was excited that I got to wear fall clothes today lol. Next weekend we are going out of town shopping so I will be getting some fall items and hitting up TJ Maxx of course! I can't wait! What are some trendy items you guys are purchasing for this fall?

Hey guys! I just wanted to do a little post and let you all know, I am still around! lol. I have neglected blogging lately and I am very sorry. Things have been crazy! My husband has been working crazy and long hours which leaves me with both kids and no time to sit down and relax and write a blog without having to stop a million times lol. Also, a week ago my little girl had her tonsils removed and then just a few days later my husband got sent off to a job 3 hours away and hasn't been home since. Hopefully he will be back tomorrow but it has been a long and exhausting couple of weeks. Anyways, enough excuses lol. I will be doing a haul soon on my youtube channel so be sure to check that soon as I get time! lol. I just wanted to say thanks everyone for sticking with me and I will get back on track, just sometimes life takes over lol. Love you guys!!!

Viva Glam Cyndi

Today I went for a red lip, yep, a very red lip lol. I am a total fan of pin-up looks and I wish I had Marilyn Monroe lips to pull it off buuuut.........I don't. I don't feel like red is a very good color on me but one red that I will wear is Viva Glam Cyndi. Its not a candy apple red but sort of a pinky coral red if there is such a thing. Its very wearable so if I am going to do a red its definitely this one. I saw the tube sitting in my drawer screaming "wear me, wear me!" so thats what I did. It feels very loved now lol. Anyways, just a quick and somewhat silly little post for the day since I have been doing tons of nail posts lately :)

Copy Cat!

Yep, I'm a copy cat! I saw a picture on beautopia of something she had done and I had to try it! It was the m57 plate and then she added the colorful dots which added such a nice POP of color. I think she also stated she had seen this on makeupalley and it was called "rainbow snow leapard" which I think is a PERFECT name for it! I am getting a little better with my Konad but it definitely takes practice! Anyways, I wanted to talk about the polish I used which is LA Colors White. This is a nice white, sort of sheer, so I had to layer 3 coats to get a full opaque white. It can be quite streaky though so without the Konad stamp over it I would not have been satisfied;however, since it is sheer, its very thin which means fast drying time and I am a total fan of as my son needed a diaper change in the middle of doing my nails lol. So far, this has been a theme with the LA Colors polishes I have tried, very sheer which can be a good or bad thing, depends on what look you're going for. For the black I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out which works really well with the konad as its kind of a thick black polish but I may purchase a few of the konad special polishes soon though. My daughter loves it as well! She has been going around trying to stamp everything lol! I do her nails and it works great, so easy and fast for her little nails. So far, I am very pleased with my Konad and it was a good investment and I will definitely be investing in more plates and maybe some polishes soon!

1st Konad!

Hey guys! So......I finally bought a Konad! The plate I wanted most was m57 (pictured above). It has a zebra, leopard, fishnet, and lace print. They are full coverings which means they cover the whole nail. This was the first time I had experimented with them and it was way harder than I thought! lol. I attempted this lace look and it turned out OK but I'm definitely no pro yet! It is going to take some practice but I'm willing to work with it. Do you guys have a Konad? If so, what tips do you have for me and what is your favorite plate?
