My Nails This Week: Coloured Stripes

After completing this design, I realized that this would work really well as Pride nails, wouldn’t it?  And wasn’t it just Pride week?  Shoot!  Why didn’t I do these nails just a little sooner?! What I used to accomplish this look: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat Zoya Alma Zoya […]

Review: Ruined (Ruined #1) by Amy Tintera

Let me start off by saying that I’m such a sucker for these types of books. Give me a book with a Dystopian society and a tortured romance and I likely won’t be able to put it down. To be honest, this book was nothing special when I really think […]

My Nails This Week – My attempt at sunflowers

The lovely Lindsi from Do You Dog-ear? requested a sunflower nail design.  I have to say, I am not an artist and I’ve only ever attempted very simple, tiny flowers before (like these).  However, I happily accepted the challenge and tried my best!  Here is the result.  I think this would […]

Review: Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna #1) by Kendare Blake

I’m glad I gave this author another shot (I DNFed Blake’s Antigoddess).  This book surprised me and I actually really enjoyed it.  I’m not much for horror and I don’t typically enjoy romances between human beings and supernatural beings.  But this book definitely kept my interest and I wanted to […]

A Look Back at June 2018

June was a great month for me!  I’m getting settled into my new job, which I am really liking so far.  My daughter turned TWO!  So exciting.  And since her birthday, I swear she has been learning new things and growing like crazy.  It’s like she turned two and all […]
