cupcakes on my nails

So I went to my niece's 1st birthday this past Saturday and her theme was cupcakes & ladybugs, cute right?! I actually had baked about 75 cupcakes for the party for the kiddos to decorate. Anyway, haha me being totally in love with cupcakes (their taste, look, smell, feel, lol) was inspired to do some colorful nail art designs for the party! Doing both hands took me all of about 2 hours, but it was totally worth it! You like?

I am IN LOVE with how they turned out. I wanted each nail to be a different design, but wanted to keep the colors somewhat monochromatic. This would be an awesome nail tutorial but I have no idea how to film that (no tripod). We'll see, I might figure it out eventually.

After doing my nails this cute playful design, it inspired me to play around with my makeup for the night. Bright, fun, girlie colors; I ended up using a yellow shadow, a mix of pinks, and a deep purple. This look was super easy to do I am definitely doing a tutorial on it.

Yep, enjoy the candid shots :)

something i've been enjoying

For months and months my boyfriend has been going fishing, I myself always thought of fishing as a real bore and waste of time. It wasn't until about a month ago when I started getting curious on why my boyfriend enjoyed it so much. I asked him if I could go fishing with him and I must say, the first time we went I again made the conclusion that this wasn't for me.

Then we went a second time, and this trip totally changed my aspect of fishing (these pics are from the 2nd trip). I think it was because of the change of location. The spot we went to this time was near some condo's, and the beach was very calm and serene. A lot of people say the waiting is the hardest part, but to me, its the best part! It's the time I have to spend with my boyfriend, time for good conversations, for laughs.

I am very much looking forward to many more fishing trips with my boo. We actually went "whipping" last week and little ole me caught 2 fish (woohoo!). This is a new hobby, and something to do with the boyfriend. Any time with him, is a good time :)

NYX "thalia" lipstick

First off, let me just say that this lipstick is AMAZING! I featured this lipstick in my very first ever YouTube video! I was a little lighter then, and felt it suited me very well then. It's been about a year now, and I've gotten a tad bit darker. I haven't picked this lipstick up since a year ago I believe, but boy what was I thinking? I LOVE this one!

I have a couple more NYX lipsticks, but they have a frost finish to them which is my least favorite kind of finish, especially for lipsticks. Frost finishes bring out the lines in your lips, which I seem to have a lot of, haha. Anyway, this one is a cream finish, and very creamy indeed! Very easy to apply and the payoff is incredible (as you can see).

It's a pretty bright lipstick (for me at least), very bubblegum pink. But thalia has a very unique purple tint to it, which I love because it is very unexpected. I like to wear this lipstick with a simple eye, just some eyeliner and mascara. Pair it with a nice pink blush and you're set to go! I love pairing bright lips with a almost bare eye. Definitely check this one out if you can.

you can purchase it at CVS, on their website, and on
