Don't Go Grocery Shopping. Things Happen.

Before I had my two nephews create the artwork above my fireplace, I searched online for something I might like. I'm glad I didn't find anything, but check these out -

I actually have these in my dining room and I love them! Aren't they cute?

And I have this in my bedroom.:

I don't know about you, but this has never happened to me:

Or this:

I love Madonna, but I don't think I need a 96 x 96 wall mural. Or do I?

They've Hatched!

Last month when my nephews came to visit me, we got crafty and made dinosaur eggs. Since then, they have been incubating in one of their closets. We finally got around to cracking them open when I went for a visit over the weekend. They were fun to make, but it was even more fun pulling out the little dinosaurs!

Water Marbling

I am horrible at swatching, but I really wanted to get some pictures of my first attempt at water marbling. You Tube has great tutorials so I won't go into details, but basically you drop different colors of nail polish in water to create a bullseye, use a toothpick to swirl a design, and then stick your nail in the water. Repeat 9 more times! So, yeah, it's time consuming, especially cleaning up your fingers afterwards, but I think it's worth it.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Commander in Chic
Sephora by OPI Fancy Schmancy
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Gray by Gray

I was wearing silver glitter before I decided to do this, so I can't tell if that's what is coming through or if it's the Fancy Schmancy.

Man, I really need to work on my finger poses, not to mention the camera work.

Just A Few Products I'm In Like With

How come I am just now finding out that Pond's cold cream is the most awesome stuff ever invented? This is seriously the best makeup remover I've ever tried. I used to use a toner (after makeup wipes, and a face wash) just to make sure I've gotten every last bit of makeup off my face - and you should've seen the cotton ball. Yuck. Now, I've ditched the toner. Love this stuff.

I have naturally curly hair that turns into a hot mess if I don't use some sort of no-frizz product. I've been using Catwalk's Curl's Rock for about a year now and it works great. Although, and I'm just being picky here, I hate the goopiness feeling on my hands when I wash up afterward. I also hate the price - it's around $15.

Aussie Instant Freeze hair spray is called that for a reason. Instant freeze. Yes. Exactly. Why does 'flexible hold' even exist? And I love love love the directions - "It's hair spray. You spray it on your hair."
