Spotty

I’ve really been into nails lately, random!  Well I was inspired by, my fave, Oh Joy’s nails. Ugh she’s such a dream. If you want this look keep reading!


Get the colors you want. I went with gold pink and purple. I recommend at least 3 colors with a neutral base. Put together all of the typical nail accoutrement; files, orange sticks, cuticle cream and some q-tips.

Cut your q-tips.


Here’s my neutral base!

Take your cut q-tips, dip them in your chosen color and spot away.

Don’t be scared to layer, I tend to start with three dots on each nail then add more as I see fit. Get creative!


Add two layers of top coat and voilà!!!

I’ve been a craft maniac lately. So many projects that I just didn’t have the time to stage and edit. This is a DIY bloggers secret the staging of the project takes longer than the actual project. And on top of that I rarely craft while cute!  I normally look pretty undone. Well, today I had a moment to document my achievement. 

 My cousin vocal coaches a number of high powered vocalists and wanted some specialized microphone stands.  I got the call and rose to the challenge.    It was pretty simple. Plastic tarp, spray paint (I prefer Rustoleum), and some fresh microphone stands. It took about 4 coats but we got it done. 

 My other cousin, Eric, got a little cameo.  At the end of the day I’m in love with the guilded stands. I may go back over there and add some glitter to something. I’m seriously addicted to glitter.   

One ring to rule them all!

My jewelry collection has grown one bauble larger today thanks to a wonderful article written by Brit + Co. My Ringly smart ring has arrived!  It’s beyond just fashion its wearable tech, fabulous, miraculous, wearable tech.  Ringly allows you to connect to all your networks while staying in the present moment. It’s a super gorgeous 18 carat matte gold ring with a semi-precious stone. Im just in love! 

As an early adopter the founder and CEO sent a lovely thank you letter. Can’t ask for a classier company.

The packaging is exquisite.

This is what I found inside!  The little box held the black and gold USB cord the larger box holds the good stuff.

The ring box doubles as a portable charger. Just plug it in with the detachable USB cord and it charges while it charges your ring.  The box even holds the charge after it’s disconnected so you can charge on the go. Ugh…perfection!

The ring pairs with an app and alerts you to phone calls, text messages, emails, calendar events, even social media updates.  It buzzes and lights up in an array of colors (pink-more like red, yellow, blue, purple, and green). The buzz is super subtle, far more appropriate for that, middle of a board meeting, text message. My phone vibrates so loudly that I may as well have the ringer on. I’ve even set it up to buzz and shine a specific color when my beloved calls.

Basically, this is the best thing ever created. I mean next to penicillin and the printing press. So, in my humble opinion, get this ring!
