A Christmas Manicure

Hiiiii,

The other day I completed my Christmas nails for the year, and thought I’d share them.  I adore this new trend–half moon–and figured it’d be fun to try the style with Christmas colours and glitter.

Stylegawker!?

Hello!  I hope you are all having an amazing Easter weekend!  I’ve just been spending mine dreading my english work I have to do today & tomorrow, but I hope your’s is going much better!

So I’ve been exploring lots of DIYs again for the Spring & Summer, and that includes searching around craftgawker.com, and I guess I haven’t been on in a while, because I found something called ‘Stylegawker’ at the bottom of the page!  What!?  When did this happen!?  Why did nobody tell me my favourite craft website now has a sister website for fashion!?  WHAT!?  So I thought I would let you guys know about this fabulous invention, because it really is a great concept.  I knew there was a weddinggawker, and a dwellinggawker, but they must of recently just came out with stylegawker, or maybe I’m just really dumb.  If you don’t know what any of these gawker websites are, it’s basically just a Pinterest or a Tumblr, except they are all pictures of things, and you can click on them to go to the blog or website where the picture came from, which is where you can find the DIY or post on that specific thing.  I’m making it sound way too complicated for what it actually is…

Anyways, here’s a link to the website!

I just thought I would let you guys know that I have came out from under my rock, and I’ve found this really cool site!   And, to let you know that the DIY that I did yesterday and Friday has went alright, but I just have to tweak some things with it, so that post should either go up Tuesday or Wednesday, cross your fingers!

Talk soon!

China Glaze Lemon Fizz

Hello!

Everyone responded really well to my last NOTD, so I thought I would show you what’s on my nails today!  Another very spring-y shade by China Glaze!  This one is called Lemon Fizz, which is a beautiful, bright pastel yellow.  Spring chicks on your nails!!  This is pretty much the ultimate spring shade to have, and it’s a beautiful colour.  It doesn’t make my fingers look sickly or anything like that, just very cheerful!  I got this shade a while back from Sally Beauty Supply, and I used three coats without a topcoat.

Essie Absolutely Shore

Happy sunday!  It’s a beautiful march day today, and in spite of that, I’ve painted my nails a very spring-y colour.  It is very strange doing this because I’ve been so used to the dark colours for winter, but I’ve dusted off my spring/summer polishes, and they’re ready for the next few months!  Yipee!  I’m ready for a change.

Absolutely Shore was from one of Essie’s summer collections I believe in 2011, called “Brazilliant”.  I love mint in general, especially in nail polish form, so I picked it up and I love it!  I’m not sure if it’s still available, seeing it was from a couple years ago, but I thought I would snap a picture of it anyways, because it is a beautiful colour.  I’m thinking about starting up my OOTDs and NOTDs again since the new season is approaching, and I’ve been getting some of my older clothes out.

Butter LONDON’s ‘Bossy Boots’ seems similar to this colour, being a very bright, light green-based mint.  Absolutely Shore looks a white from a far, but up close it is a almost beige-y green.  I guess they’re calling it ‘pistachio’.

What’s your favourite colour to wear for spring?  Have a great week!

 

 

Celebrity Style: Blair Waldorf’s Coats

One thing that I noticed while I was watching Gossip Girl…the amazing fashion!  I mentioned this in my GG post, and I am going to be doing a few Celeb Style posts on it!  For the first instalment  I have found four of Blair’s coats, and found either the exact ones, or very close matches.  I will probably do one of these for Serena too, so stay tuned for that!

My Favourite Tumblr Blogs

I made a tumblr a few months back, and since then, I’ve been slightly addicted.  I like to reblog lots of pictures…like cats, sparkly things, quotes, T. Swift, vintage-y things, interior design stuff, fashion, parisian goodness, things I’m drooling over, you know.

Although I love posting pictures and pictures of things I love, you can see them all on my tumblr, linked here!

But, the point of this post is not to just share my tumblr, it’s to share some of my favourite tumblrs!  I have so, so many, but I have managed to narrow it down.  I’m also constantly finding more and more I like, but these are just the ones that I mainly think of.  Click the URLs to see their blogs!

1. Meghanrosette.tumblr.com.  She has been one of my favourite youtubers for a REALLY long time now, and ever since I fell in love with tumblr, I’ve been loving her pictures.  And, I just recently discovered that she has another tumblr, for her poetry, and she’s an amazing writer!  I used to be really into poetry myself, but then I sort of fell out of it, I guess.  She has inspired me into getting back into it!  She has the exact same style as me, so click here to read a few of her poems/descriptive stories!

2. Arose186.tumblr.com.  Arden has also been one of my favourites for a REALLY long time, and we have very similar taste.  I am getting more into art, and her tumblr is very arty because she is an AMAZING artist.  I will be doing a post on that coming up soon.  Another very fashion-y, girly blog.

3. classy-lovely.tumblr.com.  The URL says it, a super classy blog.  This person has amazing taste, and she blogs beautiful classy fashion & beauty.

4. daisy-y.tumblr.com.  This blog is a little different from the others.  All of her reblogs are very fresh, colourful, and summery.  It’s really fun to just browse through her pictures in the winter time especially because it reminds you of how much you miss summer…oopsie.

5. cafe-a-la-enchantment.tumblr.com.  Another very fresh, girly blog, but this one isn’t all fashion, it’s lots of decor and colour.

6. allthingsgirlyandbeautiful.tumblr.com.  Very similar to #5.  A bit of a different style, but lots of colour and pretty things.

7. girlinawhimsicalland.tumblr.com.  I believe I did a post on Elle’s tumblr a while ago.  I love her tumblr mainly because of her beautiful pictures and her writing.  She is so inspiring.

8. zoella.tumblr.com.  Gotta add her in!  I’ve been literally addicted to british youtubers, and her tumblr is awesome too!  She posts a lot of her own pictures, and it’s like a little behind the scenes peek into her life outside YouTube.  She is (dare I say it!!) my all time favourite YouTuber…or at least top two…and her tumblr as I said is one of my favourites (obviously).  ;)

9. finnharries.tumblr.com & jacksgap.tumblr.com.  Along with the british youtuber theme, I’ve gotta add them in here.  Have you guys seen their newest video!?  Finn is FAKE!?  Haha, I don’t think it’s real at all.  I’m curious to see what they have to say when they are going to tell the truth.  Anyways, I just put them both into one because they are twins, and do a lot of the same things together.  They have an amazing life, taking trips everywhere, and they are friends with my other favourite YouTubers.  They also post a lot of their own photos, and they are great photographers, so it’s interesting to see what they are posting next!

10. southern-charmer.tumblr.com.  And lastly, another girly, pretty tumblr.

So, that’s about it for today.  I really tried at getting screenshots of everyone’s blogs in here, but it keeps saying error…I’ll have to see what I can do about that this weekend…this is not the first time it happened.  Technical difficulties here!
