Mont Bleu Review

Pres Sample

Nail blogger confession: For years, I used cardboard nail files. I know, blasphemy! It actually wasn't until I got a glass nail file in the 2015 Ciate Mini Mani Month that I started to move away from the cardboard ones. That's why when Mont Bleu contacted me to try some of their products, I was really excited!

Mont Bleu specializes in glass nail files from the Czech Republic, but they have lots of other beauty items as well. I was sent three different items to review. They also sent me a Prague post card which I thought was super cute!

Muffin's (Almost) 18th Birthday + Tattoo

I have mentioned it a few times on the blog, but my very special kitty, Muffin, passed away about a month ago. Her birthday is on March 31st, and every year I had a special celebration for her. As she got older she got more spoiled, and I gave her a special dinner, a gift, and a cupcake for each birthday. Some years, even my mom would send her a gift!

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette - Nail Art

Surprisingly, when I got the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette, the first place my mind went was not makeup looks. My first thought was actually "can I use this to create nail art?" I painted my nails black, got some of the makeup on a sponge, took a deep breath, and...

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette - Swatch + Makeup Look

Almost a month ago, my very special kitty, Muffin, passed away. It was very hard on me, and I am still not healed. My mom knew how hard that day was going to be, and a few days before we had to say "goodbye" to Muffin, my mom sent me a surprise in the mail. She asked me to open it on that day to try to lift my spirits. Even though it was a very sad day, I was still excited when I opened the box and saw the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette. I finally got a chance to try it out, and I can't wait to share it with you!

Mint Leopard French

There's no denying it, spring is here. For most people, this is a great time of year filled with sunshine and beautiful weather. I, on the other hand, hate spring with a passion. I don't like that the weather is warming up (I miss my scarves and boots!), and I especially don't like all the rain.

However, one thing I do like about spring is that the color mint is everywhere again! I love the gorgeous color, and it always pokes it's pretty head out when the weather starts warming up. I saw this pastel pink and leopard print nail art look on Pinterest, and I wanted to recreate it with my favorite spring color.

Wedding Crafting: Who's Who Picture Collage

When I first started planing my wedding, I thought I wanted to craft everything. I soon realized that crafting was a lot more work than it was fun! I still have a lot of things on my crafting to-do list, and I want to share a few of them on the blog. One project that I knew I wanted to do was a Who's Who picture collage.

Look Book: Purple Leopard

AAANNNDDD...I'M BACK! I'm sure some of you noticed (and I'm sure some of you didn't) but I took an unexpected 2 week blogging break. If you follow me on Instagram, you may know part of the reason why. Sadly, my very special kitty, Muffin, passed away. I got her when I was 9 years old, I had her for her entire 18 years of life, so this loss was extremely hard on me. On top of that, work has been overwhelming lately, (a lot got added on to my plate the day after Muffin passed). In that same week, the official 2 months-til-the-wedding countdown started, and I am scrambling to get everything done. So as you can see, it's been an intense couple of weeks.

The pain of loosing Muffin gets a little better every day, and even though work is still busy, it is getting more managable. The wedding stuff is still piling on, but I wanted to get back to blogging. I don't think that I will be able to keep up my schedule of posting twice a week, but I'll do my best! For my first post back, I wanted to share a winter-to-spring transition outfit.
