The Clash of Blogging and Summertime

Is it just me or is it much harder to stay motivated and consistent with blogging come summertime?  I feel like there are so many things going on in the summer that my blog suffers because of it.  Life is busy at the best of times, but summer is even […]

My Nails This Week: New Twist on French Tip

I actually have no clue if this design has been done before (surely I’m not the first one to think of this?), but the idea came fresh and clean into my mind with no use of inspiration from others.  So, here it is: The colours don’t show up the greatest […]

What Makes a Good Blog?

After discussing what makes a good discussion post, I got to thinking about what it is that makes a good blog – a blog that draws followers and keeps people coming back.  There are many factors involved, I’m sure.  However, even if you do everything right, does it guarantee you […]

My Nails This Week: Nude Design

I got Zoya’s new Satin collection and this is my first time wearing a “nude” nail colour, so I thought I would play with it a little.  I felt like it needed some colour!  And what colour is better for Spring than pink? What do you think of this design? […]

Blogging vs. Other Interests

It’s strange.  I seem to go through spurts when it comes to blogging.  Sometimes (like when I recreated my blog into its current version), I am so into blogging and so excited about it and just want to post new stuff everyday (and actually think of things to post everyday)…But […]

My Faves in Nails

While I love trying new things, I do have favourites when it comes to nails.  It took me a while to find some of these (such as the perfect top coat), so I thought I would share them with you in case you are looking to find a new favourite […]

My Nails This Week – Gradient Pixie Dust

One of my favourite nail polishes is Zoya’s Pixie Dust collection.  I thought I would try my hand at some gradient nail art this week.  The awesome part: no sponge required!  The less-than-awesome part: I realize now that this looks more like a winter nail design than spring/summer, but oh […]
