DIY home decor for your wall

22 Jun

Found this great home decor post to add a little character to your home. The tutorial is from jenloveskev.com and the full explanation is there.
But just by looking at it I can think of a million possibilities, you could put sweet phrases, your last name or even shapes like pretty hearts or stars. Stars would look adorable in a kids room πŸ˜‰

studded head-band

Making this head-band is simple and it looks great with so many outfits. It can be another studded accessory or something to give your outfit a little edge πŸ˜‰
You can make this headband with what ever studs you choose I made one with pyramids and one with spikes. The pyramid one looks really cute but needed a little more work and the studs fell out a couple of times 😦 The spike one was a lot easier and the studs always staid in place.
you will need
* A head band (I used my favorite goodie head-bands in black)
* studs
* flat or round pliers (I prefer the flat ones)

how to

1) place the head band inside the stud 2) fold the “teeth” into the head band overlapping them onto each other

3) continue this process until at least half of the head band is full.
4) pull the head band to check for any loose studs and fix them if they need tightening
5) Enjoy your head band and rock it around town πŸ˜‰

These are moon nails, and they are super easy to do and make your nails look so put together ❀

you will need
*two contrasting nail polishes (I used a hot pink and a pastel pink)
*re-enforcement labels
*top coat (optional)

how to
1) paint the entire nail with the first color
2) let it dry completely.(This step is very very very important because you will be sticking the circles over it)
3) ad the circle adhesives over where your moon would be.
4) paint over it with your other color
5) peel of the sticker SLOWLY and voila!
6) once dry apply the top coat and you have a pretty mani πŸ˜‰

Perfect Red Lipstick

22 Jun

Tomorrow is the perfect day to wear and rock red lips, sexy, sultry, and just right. BUT you need to wear it properly because if you don’t they could look very dry, and odd and if you don’t moisturize and exfoliate they will look flaky! EEk!! So to make you feel confident about your cute puckers here’s a great video showing you how to do it…
P.S. Don’t forget to blot it will make the lipstick stay on your lips and not all over everything else, for a perfect night. xoxo
