Zoya summertime collection. LOVE IT!

Apr 2, 2011 Author: admin | Filed under: Fashion, Nails
Zoya Sunshine collection

Zoya has had a few REALLY great online deals lately. The first one was three free polishes so having never purchased Zoya before, I got three and have not looked back since then.

Then they had the Go Green sale for St. Patrick’s Day. 3 polishes for $5.00 so I got those and LOVED ALL THREE. I got a ton of compliments on my nails that week.

They are without a doubt the BEST polish I’ve used in a LONG time. The color payoff is amazing, two coats is all I’ve needed in most cases, they last REALLY well on my nails which are generally weak and chip SO EASY but not with Zoya!

LOVE the Sunshine collection from Zoya.  LOVE!

Two weeks ago they had a BOGO sale so I got 6 polishes for the price of 3, plus they had $2.00 shipping so it was about $20 for all 6 polishes! I ordered the entire Sunshine collection and they came in the mail today and they are SO CUTE! I can’t wait to try them all out.

*This is NOT a paid post. 100% my idea, my opinions and I paid for all the products. I just wanted to share because I have been so impressed with them and all my girlfriends should know.


Splat Hair Dye in “Blue Envy”

Splat Blue Envy

Cassidy has been begging me to dye her hair blue for about two years now but I’ve been hesitant to do it. When she asked me this weekend I really couldn’t think of a good reason NOT to allow her to so on a whim we picked up a package of Splat Hair Dye in “Blue Envy” for $10.99 at our local Walgreens (they have it for $9.99 online!).

The box instructions give you the option of bleaching the hair first or not but states that for a more vibrant blue they recommend it so we did. Here is a progress shot after we had bleached the hair and before applying the blue:

Project Blue Hair progress shot.

After we washed out the bleach and completely dried it, we added the blue. The squeeze bottles they included made it very easy to apply both the bleach and then the blue coloring although they only provided one pair of gloves and it would have been more convenient to have one new set for each of the two steps.

After letting the blue sit for 30 minutes she washed then conditioned her hair and I was surprised at how great it felt. I thought for sure that the bleach would leave her hair feeling damaged but it didn’t at all. It still had the same soft texture as the rest of her hair.

After blow drying I took a few more shots so you could see just how blue this dye really is.



I’ve always heard that you need to buy expensive dyes to get color like this but I don’t see how her hair could be any more blue at this point! Of course, the real test will come when we see how long the color lasts but after reading online we added some dye to conditioner to use on her hair once a week to keep the color looking fresh. In a week or two I’ll do a follow up post and let you know how it’s looking!

For now, I have one happy blue haired girl!

Custom knit scarf from Sweetcheex76’s Etsy shop.

010/365 - Etsy owns my soul

When I first heard about Etsy I wasn’t thinking it would be quite as GODDAMN FABULOUS as it is. Seriously. I pictured a bunch of old ladies posting the scarves and mittens they’d made while sitting in a retirement home sipping tea. I. WAS. SO. WRONG.

When I had finally heard about it more times than I could stand I went to check it out for myself… and four hour later I woke up in a pool of drool and shaking a little. It’s addicting. Seriously, try going to that site and spending less than an hour browsing at all of the amazing stuff. It’s IMPOSSIBLE. It’s an endless pool of awesome creations and originality and a simple search for “scarf” will turn up 1261 pages of scarves. 1261! I’m pretty sure that I’ve looked at EVERY. SINGLE. PAGE.

That first time, when I woke up in a pool of drool, the first thing I thought to do was check my PayPal account to see how much damage I had done and, thankfully, I only managed to buy one scarf in my binge. It was the scarf you see in the picture there from Sweetcheex76’s shop. When it came in the mail it was even better than the description had made it out to be. It’s SO SOFT and thick and I every single time I wear it out in public I get a compliment on it. Actually, I can’t wait till it gets cool enough to start wearing again. Not only that, but it’s the first item I bought that made me want to learn to knit myself which has become a hobby I’ve really found myself loving.

I’m going to start posting more of my awesome Etsy finds here. I’ve honestly never ordered something I didn’t absolutely love and would recommend ANY of the shops I’ve purchased from and thought that I should share that with the world so you too can surround yourselves with all the pretty handmade goodies your Paypal account can handle.

I'm a loud mouthed, outspoken, opinionated pain in the ass but I swear I make up for it by being cute and cuddly. I like pie. I'm on pretty much every single social network out there so rather than go on and on about myself, go joing them, add me, and join the circus in my head. I promise I won't bite too hard and if nothing else, I'm fun to laugh at when you're feeling down.
