Eer..., For tomorrow i thought; to be a little formal-ish/casual. Still would be able to show color(s) and minimize accessories to make everything POP and go together at the same time. Then maybe paint your toe nails the same color your blouse/shirt.

Not in any order of what so ever.. Just blah blah blah-ing about anything, really.
To start of, though its hard to kinda admit... However. I, kinda miss my Cavalier, my very first car. I was in high school. Got me anywhere i wanted to go! Especially where i partially grew up/ or should i say spent my middle-high school years.<- Was in the middle of now where in Az. Where the nearest Mc Donalds was 10 miles away. Every one knew every body. My Cavalier, was officially given to me when i turned 16. Now i am almost 24(in Nov,) and just last month., I said goodbye to Nicky(Cavalier.)
It was "time," to let go and up grade. I suppose i didn't really have any choice. I have been putting off getting a new car for years and finally got the courage to do it. For moral support, my AMAZING mother came down and helped me decide about what to get. 350z, G35 what was really i was looking for. Of course, it was a bit difficult to find an Automatic 350z; with low miles. They were discontinued back in... i believe 09 and was replaced by a wider chassis. The G35 coupe, on the other hand was very hard to find. So after a couple of weeks of searching my husband was suggesting different vehicles. We looked at Scion TCs, VW Jettas... Even was going to check out a couple of TT's.. Until, a certain vehicle caught my moms eyes. Chrysler Crossfire limited edition. We immediately looked at the car, ASKED for the CARFAX and-without any test drives... started paper work.
Mom decided to test drive my car, after we had gotten it.! Fell in love even more, with the car that she had successfully suggested for me to purchase. I cant say i blame her. It is a wonderful car.
With that being said. I promised my self that the next car i would own will have the Autobot Emblem.. And i found this on Ebay. I don't really care what others will say, I WANT iT! -- End of story.
Snap shot. Inside my car, the very next day. On my way to the office.
The very next day.. Got bored on my desk and thought i should paint my nails. So i did and matched the color of my new car.
Last, but not the least. In the month of June and July, my department hosted the annual Summer Bash contest. Where, each week- depending on how we did..individual career goals, will get us a chance to win up to 10 raffle tickets. Again, each week. And in order to maximize the earnings of the ticket, of course you would have to meet and EXCEED your monthly/daily goals. Which i, always did(not to boast, I'm very competitive.)
And after two big months of racking up tickets to put in whatever box choice you decided to, the company took my department to a paid several hours of bowling and pizza, where every half an hour our Department manager will draw name from each boxes and finally announced the winner.
Unfortunately, my name was not picked in any of the categories. Yes, i was somewhat bitter. I had earned... I believe, a total of 7-10 tickets a week(i took a week vaca to Cali, in the middle.) I placed them in all raffle boxes with the exceptions of Grill, Blu Ray and Ipod. Although i did not win any of these amazing prizes, i cant say that i did not have fun bowling or getting fed lunches/break fast in the office. And the truth of the matter is that i have won many little prizes at work through out the year. Such as tons of movies, a set of beautiful Mosaic Hurricane candle holders, $100 worth of Bath & Body Works stuff(several times,) and many many more that i cant even remember. I am fortunate to work for a company that even in these hard times, takes very good care of their employees.

I have just been so busy lately... with work, family & just life in general. I do have to kinda-ish blame work. It's just been SO busy in the office lately. IT does SOMETIMES takes a lot out of me. Where sometimes i feel exhausted. To always meet and exceed my goals and be a good example for others. So for "those" bad days... i pull out my box of nail polish. Without thinking if the color would match my outfits, should it be plain? OR should i put a design? I just go and paint.
My Japanese inspired nails
Painted all my nails Sinful Colors "savage." Applied one coating of Sinful Colors "daddy's girl." Draw little black branches using "black" Art Deco by L.A nails polish. Then using dotting tool, i put little dots using "folly" by Sinful Colors.
I painted some of my top nails with clear base sparkly glitters and the others with green glitters<- Applied only 1 coat each nail. Painted from half to the tips using a bright blue sparkle(2 coat to even a light finish and 3 coats to make them darker.)
StarFish: Plain yellow(no glitter or shimmer, other wise it would just blend in with the background.) Then used bright orange to put dots on top.
Corals: Had 2 with different colors... One was a pale pink with little pinkish-brown dots. The other one was like an orangy-red color.
SeaPlants: Again, i created 2 different styles and colors. One was the well known Codium Reediae seaweed using dark green then, using a different hue of green with some sparkle to kinda bring the shape up front. For 2nd one i used a slightly dark deep red and highlighted some parts using the orangy-red color then i went back to put a little bit of orange just to make it stand out a little bit more.
Shell: I used a deep coral color. Added some sparkly orange on some places.
Guppy: Purple that fades into a light brown tail also with little black dots.
Rock: Gun metal dark then to highlight some areas i used light silver.
LittlePearls: Small dot using the Pale pink color then covered it up with light metallic blue.
Use any type of light gray polish to cover your nails. When completely dry dip each nail in rubbing alcohol for about 5-7 seconds then press news paper in place(be careful on pressing. IF you move it to much then the ink from the paper might not come off as dark.) After 10 second, each nails, remove carefully.

What You Will Be Needing:
*Glass Gems, beads or Sand.
I switch them up every so often. Either is fine. These, depending on what you get, where you get it and the lbs, prices range from $5.99-$8.99
*Vases/Glass or Plastic:
These are all made of glass but i have use plastic vases/ pretty cups before. Again Either is fine. Its about what you want and how you want it to be. Price ranges from $3.00-$10.00
Go to Walmart for these because they are cheaper!
I really love bows(cant you tell? lol,) flowers, blings and ribbons. You can add gems or WHATEVER YOU WANT!!! Many arts and crafts places has premade bows and flowers without stems ready for sale. The blings are just fun accessory bracelets from my wedding shower.
What You Need To Do:
I like to measure my beads or in this case my glass gems so i know that they will be the same amount.... It measured 3 cups btw.
*After Filling, You Can Start Decorating!*
I do not suggest you filling to the top of the holder. The weight of your brushes will push the beads up.
See? That was fun and easy!!! Be careful of glass gems they tend to break when fall! And remember to always have fun!

Personally i love Bad gal lash from benefit! It makes any eyelashes super long and big. It doesn't ever clump or stick together (stubbornly.) The wand is so big that its easy to apply. And no fall outs throughout the day. It's $19.00 Yes, It is a little pricey for a mascara but you get what you pay for.
Your eyes will stand out even after one coat.
cosmetic qualities from eye shadows to array of mascaras and the popular box powder collections.
I'm going to list down below where you guys can get yours.
Of course these are my favorite stores and my favorite handpick sample(birchbox.) I chose these 3 particular beauty stores(give or take) because when you become a member each time you purchase, you earn points! Which you can use to buy products depending on which store you purchase from. Enjoy!
And yes! I do purchase from all of these three places.
Who needs false eye lashes?
