Create your own Textured Monograms with these 2 Materials

I'm slapping myself upside the head. For a very good reason. Just after I bought my Silhouette CAMEO many months ago, I purchased this little jewel. And. Never. Opened. It. Until a few days ago actually. The double-sided adhesive starter kit is loaded with happiness - flocking powder, glitter, double-sided adhesive sheets, spatula, brush, shapes to download… do I need to go on? Hence the self-slap. So much to do here. For those new to using the double-sided adhesive (like me), I would recommend, starting with basic shapes, just to practice. For today's post, I wanted to share how I added texture to a monogram using this starter kit....more

Zoya PixieDust Nyx and London swatches+review

I have a wonderful sister-in-law who let me try out her Zoya PixieDust polishes that she purchased during the recent promo. I don't have any of these myself because I'm still on the fence about them. I love the concept, I'm just not sure whether I like it or it's a good thing she let me try the ones she got! :)...more

Pure Ice Home Run+Sticks 'n Stones!

Just a quick polish post today...of a combo I LOVE! When I wore Pure Ice Home Run, a creamy mint green, all I kept thinking about what mint chocolate chip ice cream. I wondered if I had a dark brown chunky glitter. I wonder how awkward that would actually look in the bottle...... hahah! But then I remembered how I do have Sticks 'n Stones! I can put Sticks 'n Stones over anything and it end gorgeous. This was no exception!...more

The one with Enchanted Polish Igor!

My sweet friend Jodi over at Captivating Claws got me the neatest gift! She bought me Enchanted Polish Igor! Igor is purple, black, red, green and white glitter in a clear base. The glitters are all wild! haha I wanted to put this over a color that helped the glitter stand out, so I chose ORLY Decades of Dysfunction, a pinkish white. Or well, I see pink in it! haha I love the way this looks! ...more

Welcome to my blog!

     Hello! So this is my first blog post, so I wanted to share how I came up with the name of my blog.  I am 26 now, and when I was younger, I really liked a lot of glitter and bling and things that were flashy.  As I have gotten older, I still like a little bit of glitter, but I have gotten a lot more practical.  So I wanted my blog to focus on the simple things in life that I enjoy, but also give note to the little bit of glitter I like to indulge in.  ...more
