Lightning Bolt Manicure using NailVinyls

I am a bit of a hoarder of nail vinyls.  Even though I think I’ve figured out making my own for the most part with the Cricut, I have some that I purchased from NailVinyls™ and I don’t want to just blow through them.  So I tend to forget I have them.  I’ve been in a bit of a nail art rut lately while working on other projects and having some pain issues in my left thumb, so I decided I wanted something simple to do, yet fun, to shake things up a bit.

Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers Review

There are a lot of trends in crafts right now, but one I have just not jumped on board with is the CHALKBOARD THE EVERYTHING trend.  It’s a look I just don’t find appealing, most of the time.  I like things to look more precise, more measured, and while I have nice handwriting, I can’t draw for shit.  That said, I have previously bought cute little “chalkboard” clothespin signs and a standard white chalk marker for entertaining purposes, but found that the chalk never really removed from the signs.  I think being able to play with these liquid chalk markers had taught me the limitations and how I can be happy with a chalkboard look project!

Mia Adora 3D Fiber Lash Mascara Review

More dreams of full, flirty lashes danced in my head when I was given a significant discount on 3D Fiber Lash Mascara by Mia Adora.  Like many women, I’ve been invited to more Younique Facebook parties than I can count (don’t get me started…) and I can’t say I wasn’t at least curious, but the price tag and pushy sales tactics of the product turned me off.  So, let’s see how well this product does, shall we?

RFID Blocking Sleeves Review

Anyone who is even a little tech savvy knows that RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification.  That’s how some hotel key cards work and that handy tap & pay feature on your debit or credit card works.  So of course, that’s how savvy identity thieves are thieving.  Fortunately, here’s my review of these handy RFID blocking sleeves.

RelfectX Shower Mirror on a Rope Review

Despite recently reviewing the Cassani Fogless Shower Mirror, I was sent a different kind of shower mirror from ReflectX to review.  Just in the nick of time, too – I’ve been cursing the name of the Homejoy cleaning person who must have used some kind of harsh cleaner on the Cassani, removing the anti-fog coating and making it just a somewhat reflective piece of plastic.  Boo!  So, let’s see if the ReflectX Shower Mirror on a Rope is any better, shall we?

Opening Oakland Athletics Manicure of 2015

I have been remiss in my baseball fandom this year and it took me until the middle of June to get my ass in gear to see my Oakland Athletics in person!  Lorenza & I took advantage of her half off coupons and went to the June 19th game against the Los Angeles Angels.  I wish I could say they won, but at least I got a decent manicure out of it!
