DIY Mickey & Minnie Jars

I’ve been slowly personalizing my work space slowly but surely. I want to make sure it’s perfect and exactly how I like it. I wanted something that I can keep some materials in. I got these little jars as a party favor from a baby shower last year and thought these would be perfect to hold little things like paper clips, tacks, etc. *Note: The jar in the first image is not the jar I ended up using for this DIY project


Materials:

– Jars
– Red Paint
– Black Paint
– White Paint Pen/White Puff Paint
– Glue Gun
– Tape
– White Buttons
– Red Bow

Jamberry Nails Review


I have a friend who is a Jamberry Nails consultant and I have been really wanting to buy some of the nail wraps from her latey, but I wasn’t sure how much I would like them. I noticed on her site that I could get a free sample to try them out before buying them so I went ahead and sent in my information to receive them. Jamberry Nails are awesome nail wraps that come in tons of different and adorable designs. I’ve never tried a nail wrap before and I’ve heard some good things about these so I thought these would be the first to try out. They are very easy to apply and take off and last a lot longer than nail polish! When I got my samples in the mail it mentioned the 7 day challenge to see how they hold up/compare to the nail polish. I thought I’d try the 7 day challenge and share with you how it turned out.

Here is what my nails looked like on day one:

Beauty Blogger Tag

Hey everyone! Sorry for not posting in a while. I’ve been super busy with work and life at the moment so I haven’t had the time to really sit down and write. I’m planning on doing a couple today just to make up for it. A couple of days ago, the awesome blogger Natalie tagged me to do the beauty blogger tag. I already did this tag post a while back (without being tagged, oops) so I’ll just link to it here since there’s really no point in answering the same questions twice since they’ll be the same answers.

Thank you Natalie for tagging me (and being my first follower as well 🙂 )and I tag everyone who reads this!

Music Monday #1 – May Playlist

I’ve been thinking of other things to post about on my blog lately, besides the usual makeup review/Disney/DIY posts and I was thinking every Monday I can do a music post. Whether it’s a playlist, a song I’m obsessed with, a band I love, these posts will be about one of my favorite things in life: music. This week, I thought I’d share a playlist of some songs that I’ve been listening to on repeat at the moment and some others that I just love. I’ll also include a link to the songs on YouTube so you can check them out and have a listen if you choose.

This playlist consists of all genres of rock music. It ranges from folky type (Hozier) to punk (Bayside) to classic rock (Led Zeppelin). I hope you enjoy! If you have any bands/artists/songs that you’re listening to at the moment and would like to share, feel free to leave them in the comments below! I love finding new music to listen to! Thanks for reading!

Top 5 Favorite Movies About Music

I’ve been in a music mood lately and since I’m creating a playlist post for this week, I thought that this week’s (late) T5F post will be all about my favorite movies about music.

 1. Jersey Boys
The story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons.

I absolutely loved this movie and it definitely exceeded my expectations. Going into it I thought it was going to be another cheesy musical type movie, but it was more about the Four Seasons’ story as a band with performances/recordings of their songs throughout. I also really liked that they used some of the guys from the Jersey Boys musical. John Lloyd Young was my favorite singing-wise, and Vincent Piazza was my favorite acting-wise.

I have been nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers award by the wonderful Naomi over at Rumour!

The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award recognizes the unique voices of women bloggers around the world. To be included in a list such as this with other great/amazing bloggers is truly an honor so thank you so much Naomi!

RULES:
1. Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer the 10 questions your nominator has provided.
3. Nominate ten other bloggers.
4. Create 10 questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.

Now for my answers:

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging just because I wanted to share my thoughts, ideas, and interests with someone other than my friends who tend to get annoyed.

2. What’s your favorite TV show right now and why?
There are so many shows that I’m watching right now! I think I’m going to have to go with Bates Motel. This show has been really good this season! I got kind of bored with season 2, and I feel like this one is so much better! I’m loving that we’re starting to see the more Psycho side of Norman. Freddie Highmore does such a great job at playing a psycho, weirdo, crazy person. And I am totally loving Norma and Romero.
