2016 SIMPLE HALLOWEEN NAILS | NOTD

Victoria's Secret Pop "Laquer" + L.A. Colors "Spat"
***
I had to apply three layers of SPAT on my nails. I apply the gold glitter or "Laquer" on a wedge sponge so that it can absorb the clear nail polish leaving the glitters, then apply them to the tip of my nails.

Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen "Black"

Super easy to work with.

I had an amazing time taking my kids out to trick-or-treating tonight. I didn't dress up as anything for Halloween this year but I'm glad I painted my nails though.

I enjoyed every moment of getting myself into the Halloween Spirit: scary movies, listening to scary stories, makeup, nails, family quality time, etc. Good bye Halloween. See you next year!

P.S. If you can tell, my nails have grown longer. I wrote a post about how I s…

SIMPLE FALL NAILS + HOW I STOPPED BITING MY NAILS

Simple Fall Nails.

What's on my nails: "Sparked" and "Burgundy Frost" by Wet N Wild. $1 each.

HOW I STOPPED BITING MY NAILS: I have always had short nail beds and I never thought it looked flattering on me. All thanks to my bad habit of biting my nails, I decided one day, I wanted to do something about it and that's when my life changed. How I stopped biting my nails is simple: find a replacement. I bite my nails is because it helps me reflect and sort out my thoughts better. Most of the time it's done unintentional. It's all in your mind. Instead of biting, I form a habit of taking care of my nails now and so far, it's been very helpful. I like to keep my nails looking short and simple because I like to do many things with my hands. Painting my nails with an opaque color gives an illusion that I have a large nail bed. One day when I get tired of painting them, I'm sure I'll find an alternative. When I take great care of my nails, I…

MINIMIZING MY MASSIVE SHOE COLLECTION 2016

MICHAEL KORS SIGNATURE MK FLIP FLOP SANDALS | SILVER GREY BLACK

I've been on a hunt for Michael Kors sandals for about 2 years now and the only reason why it took me that long is because I couldn't find one that suits my style until now. It's been awhile since I wore flip flops and had to replace the ones I recently tossed away. 
I got these simple Michael Kors flip flop sandals at my local tjmaxx. Total cost: $24.99. There were a few other ones in different styles and colors but I chose this particular one because of it's darker color, it's casual, and comfortable; totally my style and goes well with my casual summer outfits! Flip flops are so convenient to put on and they have always been a classic piece. If you ever come across these sandals like mines, make sure to get them one size bigger than your usual shoe size; in other words, they run a size smaller.
Can't wait to wear them this spring and summer! 




MY SMALL INSPIRATIONAL ROOM 2016 | BEAUTY, CLOSET, CRAFT & OFFICE

Please View this in "WEB VERSION".

NOW: 5 years ago, I gradually gathered enough ideas and materials to form my own inspirational room in my bedroom area. I have always wanted my own beauty room but since I live in a small apartment, I got creative by utilizing the space I have. I have many interests and limiting to just a "beauty room" wasn't ideal for me so I invented this "inspirational room". Even though it's not really a "room" but more like a "space", I still felt like it was a "room" because of the Kallax Shelving Unit that I used as a room divider. My inspirational room was like my "get away" and my "happy place" where I like to spend the most time in.
