Manicure Monday: Featuring Elegant French Tips with Sinful Colors in Snow Me White (#2)

Hi there lovelies!

How did your Christmas go? And how's that post-Christmas shopping going? (SO MANY PEOPLE AT THE MALLS! But maybe I go at the wrong times.. :'[ haha ). I'm sure you guys are familiar with this nail look, as I did it a couple weeks ago, but I'm still obsessed with this french tips twist.

Merry Christmas lovelies!

Picture taken in San Francisco, CA at Pier 39
The fam and I went to SF this past weekend (Friday-Sunday), and that's when I captured this lovely picture. SF is such a fun place to roam around and explore. Lots of good food, and lots of breathtaking views. (Traffic and very steep streets I'm not too fond of.) But rambling for me today... ;]

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful and blessed Christmas! Thanks for reading my blog [:

Be safe and warm! (Unless you live in SoCal... then you'll already be warm! We'll be have 74 degree weather tomorrow!)

Happy Monday!

Can you believe it's almost October?! It seems like just yesterday it was summer vacation! I think from this week's Manicure Monday, you can tell I'm not ready for the autumn/fall colors yet, but I think it's a nice neutrally transition from hot, toasty weather to cooler tones. (And I'm still kind of obsessing over the bow nail art design...)

eos Lip Balm Info and 5pk Review

Hello lovelies!

Today I went by Costco and spotted this cute 5 pack of eos lip balms and I couldn't resist buying it!  The price listed was only $10.99! That means each of these little beauties were around $2.20 each! If you were to find them in the drugstores, you'd see that they're around $3-4 each. (Quite a bargain I must say!)  I went onto the Costco site to try and find a link for you guys, but they only have the 6pk listed online (which you can see here).  If you are looking for this lip balm pack, see if you can find it the next time you stop by Costco!

Mini Bath and Body Works Semi Annual Sale Haul and Review


Today I'm going to do something a tad bit differently, so bare with me (hopefully it works out)! I went by Bath and Body Works, and as some of you may know, they are doing their big semi-annual sale right around this time! So there are many, many discounts and deals as they try to get rid of all their summer selections to make room for the fall. There are sale bins all around the store, so I'm sure you'll be able to find something if you take a look around, and go crazy with their discounted items.  They have 75% and 50% off a wide selection of lotions and body washes, as well as candles! Candles originally $20 are now $11! They have $2.75-4 lotions and body washes! It's a great time to stock up on some goodies!

Salt Dough Cupcake Creation!

Hello loves! I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful Easter. :]

I've been looking around Pinterest and other places online for ideas on what to make using salt dough.  I know the typical thing is ornaments and such, but I wanted to do something else.  As I was scrolling along, I thought of doing a small cupcake trinket-like box (nothing too fancy, but something out of the ordinary).  I ended up with this little creation.
