Here’s a few tips on how to make your room a little more warmer looking for any party, date, special ocasion or just for a regular basis. You can make your living room, bedroom, den, kitchen, really any room, seem like your in a lounge or cafe. Forget candles and having them melt everywhere or turn off, here are some things a little easier to handle:
First option is; paper lanterns. These are my favorite! You can buy small or big lanters in round, square, triangle or pretty much any shape to add a nice decor a dim light to the room depending on the space. Lanterns also come with shapes cut out, these add shadow patterns to your walls. If the room is too small or the ceiling isnt high enough then consider small lanterns. You can find these pretty much anywhere and use any color you like. However, if you to use colored lanters then the room will be a lot darker than if you’d use white lanterns. Hang them preferably from the ceiling so it doesn’t make the room look smaller if it is, also you can hang them all in the middle of the room or in different hanging patterns, you don’t necesarily have to hang them in the corners of the room. I recommend lanters only for cozy/famliy rooms rather than a living room or kitchen because it would make it seem like christmas. Also, remember to buy lanterns with lights in them unless you plan to hang it on some lights that you already have.
Second option is; christmas lights. Try to steer clear from the multi-colored or white ones which are the ones associated with christmas. Instead go with some that are one color. For example, I currently have red light hanging from my head rest on my bed. You can get any color that goes well with the scheme already in the room. Also, to add a little more to these lights if you already have the colored or white ones and don’t wish to buy another, you can take construction paper and cut any shape you’d like to go around the lights. Then simply glue the ends together and glue a handle to the top of your design. Place it over the light and the paper handle on top of the cable and glue the other side on. Now you have customized paper lanterns for your lights. You can hang these over your bed, over the curtains, over the door, or on the ceiling of any room you’d like. And remember that darker colors will make the room look darker. Also remember that if you leave slits or holes in your paper lantern design, this design will be reflected on your whole room.
Final option is the simplest of them all; put a piece of see-through colored cloth over a lamp. It’s really that easy. Take any old shirt, blanket, dress, etc. and cut a piece large enough to cover your lamp and place it over the top. In this case it doesn’t matter what color you use, although black will be extremely dark, but white will be counter-productive. White cloth won’t dim your lights at all. Also it needs to be see-through or else, well, you won’t see any light.
Anyways, thats all for today! Hope you guys find these tips useful and hopefully one of the options worked for you. Upload some pics to show me your end result. Did it come out like you expected?
Here’s a few tips on how to do your hair overnight if you don’t have time to style it in the morning or if you are simply feeling too lazy to do your hair.
Braid your hair! This is not something I recommend doing every night since it can lead to breaking your ends, but every once in a while it won’t affect you. Either french braid or regularly braid your hair at night (or hours before) a lazy or busy day. Braid it tightly so the curl will remain throughout the day. In the morning, undo the braid with your fingers. DO NOT COMB OR BRUSH YOUR HAIR! After undoing all of the braids, simply shake the clumps of hair that are together with your fingers and, girls with curly hair; apply leave-in conditioner or shine, and girls with straight hair; apply gel or mousse. Always remember to use only your fingers. This is going to give you beach waves as if you spent hours styling it with a curling iron.
Hope this helps and remember to never braid your hair wet and upoload pictures and show me hoe it worked for you. Did you get the result you were looking for?
Here’s a few tips on how to do those sweet designs yourself at home with some materials you already have lying around.
For polkadots or small designs like hearts, bows, mustaches, etc.; use a toothpick or a disposable fork and cut off the two middle teeth of the fork. You can dip the fork or toothpick into the nailpolish and carefully and steadily apply your design. Take more polish than in necessary when doing this and don’t get too close to the nail so as to not scrape off any base polish.
For a faded look, take whatever colors you want to wear and put a little of each on a disposable plate, either vertically or horizontally (whichever direction you want the fade to go in). Make sure to have the nailpolishes be one after the other with no spaces in between each. Afterwards, take a small sponge (you can cut one if necessary) and lay it over all the colors and tip it side to side so it can soak up all the polish. After you’ve done this, place the sponge straight on your nail and tip it side to side again to make sure all the polish lands on your nail. Let dry and apply clear coat and you will have a faded look!
You can also buy stencils or stamps and paint over it to apply the design to your nail. Also, you can buy the nail polish with the stencil brush which is made for designs, but these can be expensive and you have to buy them in every color. Nevertheless, it’s still an option. CREATIVITY IS KEY!!
Remember to apply a base coat and let it DRY before doing any designs, and let the design dry BEFORE applying top coat. Also, use BRIGHT COLORS in any combination. Peach, Mint Green, Lilac, Black, Yellow and Light Pink are hot right now! And don’t get discouraged if it doesn’t work the first time, some designs take practice. Didn’t mama tell you practice makes perfect?
MANICURE MUSE: Valentino Resort ‘13
Minutes after the Valentino Resort ‘13 collection posted online, Valentino took over my twitter feed. Not only was the fashion twitter world abuzz about the collection, but my best friend was too. I received frantic incoming texts begging me to do a Valentino-inspired nail design because it was the “most feminine collection she had ever seen.” So Alex, this one’s for you: The Resort collection is a breath-taking change from the brand’s dark black Fall collection. The designers paid homage to the haute 60s. It’s not retro, though. The is a real-world, modern age take on Hollywood glamour. Bursting in candy-colored floral lace, demure silhouettes and perfect party frocks steal the show.
To emulate this look, I used How Romantic by L’Oreal, Ladies in the Limelight from the Kardashian Kollection for Nicole by OPI, Chiffon Chic by Maybelline’s Color Show, and Bikini So Teeny by Essie.
To get these ladyfingers:
1. Start with a nude nail
2. Using a paper towel or sponge and a paper plate, dab lime green in various spots on your nail
3. Repeat with light blue
4. Repeat with light pink
5. Top it off with Seche Vite’s Fast Dry Top Coat

DIY is probably the best way to go when it comes to your old clothes. Don’t throw them out and go shopping for new ones!! Instead, with a few inexpensive materials, you can transform your old, stained, washed out clothes into new, fashionable pieces of clothing.
The point is, don’t just throw out your old clothes because they are stained, small, big, or out-dated, you can create your own piece of clothing that no one else will have and it will be cheaper then buying a new wardrobe. Trust me, it’s easy! Don’t you think so?
