A bit of Bieber...

In case you didn't know, Justin Bieber's new album is less than three weeks away! He released a new single this week called "Die in Your Arms" which I am completely obsessed with! It has a nice Jackson 5 sound to it. If you haven't heard it yet, I highly suggest that you go listen to it! You can listen to a little preview here....oh, and you can purchase it too ;-)

Beauty Tip Tuesday: DIY Caviar Nails!

Caviar nails is a very interesting nail trend. I couldn't resist trying it! I think that the Caviar Nail Kits are way overpriced so I decided to do something on my own. This should cost you about $10 as opposed to $25! Plus, you get a lot more beads the DIY way!What you need:

  • Microbeads. You can find these in the scrapbooking aisle at the craft store.
  • Nail Polish
  • Small Container- I used the cap from my hairspray

Directions for doing the caviar effect on your accent finger (ring finger):

{Begin by pouring some of your beads into your container}

  1. You will be painting your ring finger before all other fingers. This way, you can correct any mistakes with your other fingers without messing up your polish.
  2. Paint the first coat of polish and wait about 2 minutes.
  3. Paint the second coat of polish.
  4. While you nail is still wet, dip your finger in the container full of beads. Make sure you coat your nail completely.
  5. Pull your finger out but keep the nail over the container to keep your mess at a minimum!
  6. Gently push beads down to lock beads in place.
  7. Gently remove any stray beads.
  8. See the photos below!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you try this, please email me your photos! I'd love to see how they turned out!

Last Weekend in Photos: Washington D.C.

Last weekend I took a little mini vacation to Washington, D.C! I have only been there once which was about 13 years ago. Now that I'm older, I appreciated it so much more. If you haven't visited, I highly recommend that you do! Here are a couple of photos from my trip..

Beauty Tip Tuesday: DIY Beauty Balm

Summer is quickly approaching and who doesn't want glowing skin?! Beauty balms are becoming quite popular but they tend to be on the pricey side. I decided to mix my bronzing power with some moisturizer to achieve dewey, glowing skin for much cheaper!

What you need:
  • Bronzer with a little shimmer (powder works best)
  • Moisturizer
  • Small Container
  • Put moisturizer in a small container (I bought one from the travel section so it was already packaged in a small container)
  • Slowly start adding bronzer to the moisturizer and mix as you go. The intensity of the color is up to you.
  • Keep adding bronzer and mixing until you reach your desired shade!
  • You can apply this on your body for a dewey glow and it also looks nice on you cheekbones as a highlighter!
