Rubber Ducky Baby Sprinkle

One of my best, closest, oldest friends Jennie recently gave birth to her second child, a boy they named Colin Donovan.  I helped her two sisters to plan her first baby shower 5 years ago when she became a mom for the first time with the birth of her daughter Joy, and really enjoyed it.  I convinced her to let me throw her a baby “sprinkle” this time around.  Something smaller, more like a big picnic in her honor.  Ha… I should have known I don’t do anything half-ass!  This will be the first in a series about all the various facets of a baby sprinkle that really turned into a full-fledged rubber ducky baby shower!

OBSESSED with Holo Hues!

With going to Humboldt County for Dominic’s birthday specifically to try out most of the breweries in the area, I wanted to do a beer themed manicure.  I took to Pinterest looking for ideas, but everything was either too complicated for my skill level or not quite what I was looking for.  I did so much research, putting off the actual manicure, that I kind of ran out of time to do it.  So, a simple, solid color would have to do.

Quilted Matte Effect

I’ve seen it a lot on Pinterest and I’ve been wanting to do a “quilted” matte effect.  Considering it takes a lot of precision, striping tape, and a steady hand with placement, I keep putting it off.  Recently I put a glossy top coat over Julep Quinn, which is a matte “Satin Finish” polish without thinking, so I figured this would be a good chance to try the quilted matte since the polish really does look better matte.

Sponsor Me to Attend BlogHer PRO 14

BlogHer just announced their next conference, BlogHer PRO ’14.  It will take place December 3 & 4 in Redwood City.  I had a good time attending BlogHer ’14 down in San Jose, but I was left wanting more take-home, actionable items that I could use to build my blog.  This conference seems to focus more on that aspect of blogging.  Most notably, it promises that I will walk away with a new, professional media kit.  This is something I know I need, and would love to have.

Finger Paints Poolside Paradise Collection

Originally when I grabbed these two colors I’d recently bought, I was going to attempt a star burst manicure I saw on Pinterest.  What could go wrong?  Oh, just everything.  So that’s not the manicure I ended up with, and instead I went with this random, chaotic angled half & half that probably looks familiar.  It’s similar to my Slightly Nautical Manicure, except the angle goes in the same direction on every finger.
