Making your own vintage bracelet!!

So I'm walking down the aisle of my local craft store and I happen to wonder down an aisle full of beads and charms.  All these women were ooohhhing and aaaahhhhing over these little tiny morsels...why?? So of course I cruise down the aisle to look for myself and I catch myself doing the same thing.

I found the following items and got my creative juices going.

I was inspired to make a vintage bracelet. It's a cuff bracelet and a beautiful flower that I thought would look gorgeous together.
So, to make this happen I reached for my favorite glue that pretty much glues everything that you could possibly imagine!!

With my trusty glue I was able to create this gorgeous piece.

With such a small idea and some great crafts from your local craft store you can make some great jewelry pieces!!
Thanks for reading!!
ESSENCE colour & go in the color- Walk of Fame

So I raved about this nail polish and the color and now you wanna know what it looks like right?!?!

Here it is:

It's a gorgeous color and this company does a really great job with their colors and quality of their nail polishes. I have several colors from this nailpolish company and they don't chip until about the 4th day!
try it out!!

Chic Pumpkins!!!

I know it sounds weird to call a pumpkin chic but when it came time for decorating pumpkins this year I wanted to add some flare  to make it look better then the average pumpkin. The first thing I had to do was head over to Micheals (the craft store) and shop around. I wanted something pretty and something sparkly and here is what I came up with.

It's a super fun and easy way to make your pumpkins look runway ready!!

Steps to making your pumpkin chic:
Step 1: Pick out a pumpkin, I chose a black one but they also have ivory colored pumpkins. Let your inner artist come out.
Step 2: Choose some bedazzle jewels. I wanted to keep it clean and glamorous so I just picked up some simple crystal jewels.
Step 3: Make sure you get a hot glue gun and at least 1-2 glue sticks.
Here is what I used:

I wanted to keep this simple but feel free to get as creative as you want.
First thing you need to do once you have all of your supplies is to take a piece of chalk or a white crayon and draw your designs on the pumpkin. I did not choose to do this step but if you feel more comfortable drawing it out first feel free to do so.
Next you want to make sure your hot glue gun is hot and you are ready to use it.
Finally let the fun juices flow and start gluing your jewels onto your pumpkin. Do as many or as little designs as you like on the pumpkin.
Remember it's your pumpkin and you can be as diva about your pumpkin as you want to be about it!!

Have fun and let me know if you tried this!!

Ulta Haul!!

Ulta Haul!!!!

So, I went to Ulta today and did just a little damage!! I did get some really great products and wanted to share those with you. I will have some tutorials to come so please check out my channel!!

The first thing I got is something I am really excited about because I am always on the hunt for something that will really work on my nails. I did try these out but I won't post the pictures because I plan on doing a tutorial once I give these a good trial run. I don't want to tell you something is great unless I really mean it. So these are suppose to give you gel nails without the UV light. It is a little tricky but I think after doing it a couple of times it will become easier. There were a few options for color to choose from and this was the color that I went with.

It comes with three bottles. The applicator, the nail color and then a cleaning bottle. 

The second product I got I really am excited to try because I think that essence is a pretty good quality nailpolish and it's only 99 cents!! Incredible!!

This color is a great color for fall I think and I can't wait to start wearing it!!

BUTTER LONDON!!! Some really great sales!!

I have not taken the plunge to purchase anything Butter London but I finally did today and here is why....

I know it's crazy...right?!?!?
Well I saw this duo and I thought this is the time to try this out. I think that you get two great products and for a good price. I'm have tried the powder room nailpolish remover and I thought it was amazing. I had red nail polish on and it removed it with one swipe so I was really really excited about that.

So these were some of the more exciting things that I picked up. Please check out my youtube channel for the full haul!!
