Should a blog focus on only one topic or many?

Should a blog focus on only one topic or many?
19 April, 2016 / 6 Comments

Since changing up my blog and adding topics to it so that now it is more of a general blog – or at least doesn’t only focus on books now – I’ve wondered about this.  Is this a good idea?  Or is it better to just focus on one topic?  See, the thing with me is that I have many interests and I find myself wanting to share and talk about them.  However, not every reader or follower of my blog is going to be interested in all of my topics: books, food/exercise, nails (and now pregnancy/parenting). Since starting this […]

Hey there everybody!  I know, I know, it’s been FOREVER, right?  Well, I have a reason for my very unexpected hiatus… Are you ready for it?… I’m PREGNANT!  What?  I know!  It came as quite a shock to me and hubby as well.  But, I suppose it is time for us to start a family that consists of more than just the two of us and our furry friends.  We have been married almost 4 years, so sure!  It’s time.  Even though it was a surprise, we are definitely happy about it and cannot wait to start this new chapter of our […]

My Nails This Week: French Tip with Pink and Black Twist

My Nails This Week: French Tip with Pink and Black Twist
19 August, 2015 / 3 Comments

This design was inspired by a local nail artist.  I used to go get gel nails done and my esthetician did a design similar to this.  It’s not identical, as (1) I can’t remember exactly what the design looked like, it was so long ago, and (2) I’m not a professional!  But, I think it turned out pretty cool-looking in any event. What I used to accomplish this look: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear “Black Out” OPI Color Paints “Pen & Pink” Seche “Rose” OPI Color Paints “Purple Perspective” #1 Nail Striper […]

This is my first time using OPI Color Paints and I’m already in love!  I was so excited when this collection came out because it’s so good for fun and easy nail art.  I can’t wait to do more with these new polishes!  First up with this collection: This was a super simple design to create.  I only used the normal brushes that came with the polishes.  I started with the purple on the tips and then used the pink and just blended them together.  Since it’s not meant to be perfect to for all the nails to be the […]

My Nails This Week: Wedding Glamour
22 July, 2015 / 1 Comment

Since I was attending a wedding this week, I wanted to do something that wouldn’t be too out there, but had some glitz and glamour to it, ya know what I mean?  Here’s what I came up with: Simple, yet pretty, don’t you think?  Now, this design was inspired by others, such as this design on Pinterest.  But I painted my glitter dots on, while it looks like she used a gem sticker.  I’m sure there are tons more designs like this out there – I can’t possibly link to them all! What do you think of this design? Let […]
