pink & GLITTER nails

I just wanted to show you guys how I've done my nails over the past week! Also, it's easy to find the time when your boyfriend buys a new video game. 


These were so easy to do, so it's another must have. Step one, apply Sally Hanson Hard as Nails

Step two, apply OPI: Love Letter (Do one finger at a time, because you are going to apply the glitter as soon as you put on this polish)

Step three, after you do your first finger just sprinkle the glitter on the tip of the nails. Some will jump around the base of your nails, but it builds character :P. After you're done sprinkling you can with your finger dab on the glitter so it's flat on your nails.
I picked up this glitter at Walmart for a project last year.

This is the color that I used.

Always finish up your nails with a top coat. 

On to the the nails I had last week

 First, I applied a soft pink color that I got in one of my Ipsy bags. Zoya: Gie Gie

2nd, I applied on the tips my favorite nail polish brand Maybelline Color Show. This color is Porcelain Party 380.

Then, just with a small nail brush GLITTER!

Stitch Fix

I got my first Stitch Fix Friday, along with my Mynt Box. I think I'm going to fall in love with Stitch Fix. What they do is, you answer a million questions about size and style. It costs you $20.00 for them to ship you the box. If you decide to buy something, that $20.00 becomes a credit. Example, if you like a top that comes in your box that is $30.00 and you decide to keep just that item, it's only $10.00. If you decide to keep all 5 items you get 25% off everything. Here is what I did not keep.

I really did like this top, however, it was not in my price range $$

 This is the dress I decided to keep, I would have probably just walked by this dress in a store, but when I tried it on it fit perfect and looked amazing! 
&& after you try on everything you have 3 days to take it to the post office in this pre-paid mailing bag!  

My next Stitch Fix will be coming just in time for my birthday!

Mynt Box

Hola kidds, I received in the mail Friday my very first Mynbox! Mynt Box is a monthly jewelry subscription and you get to pick what kind of box you want. I chose the Mixe Box, which is just a little bit of everything. They say every box there is $100.00 worth of jewelry and you only pay $30.00. I am going to try this box for a few months and you can quit anytime you want!

They have the cutest packaging, I didn't even want to open it.

I love what I got! My first box was definitely a success. I think my green dainty heart necklace is my favorite. Have a great Sunday!

what's for dinner? chicken fajitas

Hi guys, I have not done a post in sometime now! I'm hoping to do some crafts this summer for you guys too ;) && now to the food. 

Here is my fajitas with everything on it. Hummus, grilled chicken, peppers, onions, shredded cheese.

 First, grill the chicken and add some chili powder, ground cumin, salt & pepper. We not have the luxury to have an outside grill in our apartment, so we have multiple sizes of George Foreman's. 

So, when the chicken is getting done, chop up 1 red pepper, 1 green pepper, and I did half an onion. It was such an easy meal, and oh my gosh, I outdid myself! YUMM!!

Enjoy guys,

Pink Nails/Magazines On A Budget

How do you guys get your fashion looks/ideas. This week I decided to go to my local library and get myself a library card! I'm so adult, nerd adult. NOW I CAN READ! I have always liked reading magazines, but I'm cheap and don't want to pay for them. The main reason I got the card was so I can keep up with my Glamour reading, but when I was in there.. so many books. Who knew right? This week I have been nerding out ready a lot. I ain't mad..

While reading my magazine, I also redid my nails. I used my newest Ipsy nail color and some rhinestones I bought from Amazon.
