Kreativ Blogger award

Thanks Cheryl! :)

To accept the award do the following:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreative Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

Since I did something similar so recently, this will be tough :(

1. I love doing crafty things! Ever since Christian left, I've had a lot of time to do them. Right now I'm really into knitting.

2. I always go to sleep early, and wake up early. Even if I'm out later than usual and go to sleep later, my body naturally wakes itself up at 6 or 7. This really sucks when I don't have anything to do that day. And to make matters worse, it's nearly impossible for me to fall asleep during the day.

3. My favorite singer as of right now is Marvin Gaye. He's so amazing.. he blows my mind!

4. I used to have my ear lobes stretched, but miraculously they shrunk back to normal size so I can now wear regular earrings. Thank God!

5. Every single time I wish at 11:11, my wish comes true. Christian thinks I'm crazy, but it works..

6. I hate when people are late. That's my biggest pet peeve.

7. I have two cats whom I love to death!

A sleepy Rosie is in the front, while a sleepy Romeo is in the back. They're brother and sister, yet you could never tell except for the shape of their eyes. They're about 1 and a half years old now.

A lot of people have done this tag already, and I'm lazy, so whoever wants to do this.. go ahead. :)
Have a great weekend & Halloween everyone!!



Here's the FOTD I've been meaning to post. I wore this for my friend's 24th birthday party. I think this is one of my favorite neutral looks. It probably would have been cuter if my hair was down and curled, but I ran out of time. :(

same as always

NYX Milk
Club (this looks so amazing over Woodwinked!)
Vanilla pigment
Solar White
W&W cream liner
L'oreal Telescopic mascara
Red Cherry lashes

Rimmel l/l in Natural
Patisserie l/s
Love Nectar l/g

Oh, and I finally got my bf's damn address! The bundle of letters that I've written over the past couple of days are on their way to him at the moment... I can't wait to hear from him.
Anyways, thanks for looking! Have a great day :)


recent buys

Happy Wednesday, everyone! The week is half way over. :)

Here's some nail related things I bought over the past week or so. No time with boyfriend = too much time for spending! Oh well... it makes me happy. :)

OPI Ginger Bells, CND Stickey base coat, OPI Shim-merry Chic, CG Ruby Pumps, OPI DS Coronation, Sally Hansen Petal Pusher, Orly np thinner, and the thing in front is a crystal nail file.

Ginger Bells- I posted a mani with this yesterday. It's a pretty awesome color. The formula is perfect, you could get away with one coat.

CND Stickey- is it just me or is this not sticky at all? And they spelled it funny... anyways, it does a decent job.

Shim-merry Chic- I haven't tried it yet... I just did a quick swatch on one of my nails. Seems to be a great formula. And I LOVE the flakes!!!

Ruby Pumps- I haven't had a red np in ages, because my hands tend to have a red tint most of the time... so I wonder how this will look on me. It'll be so hot on long nails. I want mine to grow out already so I can wear this!

DS Coronation- kinda blah in normal lighting. But when the sun hits it.. ooooooooooooo... The formula is a bit too thin. Very sheer. Needs 3 coats to reach perfect opacity. In subtle sunlight:

(click to see it in all its glory!)

Petal Pusher- I really wanted this after seeing a few bloggers use this for french bases or just on it's own. It's alright. Needs 2 coats, and no, it does not dry instantly. :) I prefer more beige tinted nudes, as this is more pink.

Thinner- haven't tried it yet, but I can't wait to attack my CG For Audrey with this... FA is disgusting to use. And when I open my new bottle of Seche Vite, I will use this thinner RELIGIOUSLY.

Crystal nail file- I previously had the Revlon one from Target and it really, really sucked. This one is amazing in comparision. With my Sally's card, it was around 6 dollars. The Revlon one was about 7... total waste of money. But this one seems like it'll do a great job!

Anyways, I'll post a FOTD when I get the chance. I'll also try to do a tutorial on the look I posted a couple days back! :)


currently keeping me satisfied

She's no Christian (bf), she enjoys scratching my stomach, and she smells like fish, but she'll do for now. :)

OPI Ginger Bells

What a weird color. That's why I like it.

My nails are growing out quite nicely. I've been using Sally Hansen's Miracle Growth n/p and it seems to be working quite well. It cost me around 9 dollars at Walgreens. For that price, it should be working a damn miracle haha.

*sigh* I miss my boyfriend. :(
I really really hate his recruiter right now... he was supposed to give me the address to write to my bf last week, and I still haven't received it. UGH.

Anyways, I have another FOTD sitting on my camera so I'll upload that at some point...


an old favorite FOTD

This is one of my favorite looks! I like it because it's bright yet not too colorful...
I'm wearing my favorite shirt as well! It comes up in a lot of my FOTD posts. It's perfect for a casual yet sophisticated outing. :)

saying goodbye..

Is so hard... mind-crippling hard.
My bf joined the Marines a few months ago and yesterday he left for basic training. I'm having an extremely hard time accepting it. But it was his choice and I support it.

Anyways, I'll be posting a lot of random crap just to get my mind off of it.

Here's ChG Fortune Teller:

It's alright. Sort of over hyped... then again I don't prefer dark colors on me. And it's a fucking bitch to take off, even with pure acetone.
I had FT with ChG Matte Magic over it on my toes. I really liked it.. I think I prefer it matte.
Does anyone else think it's ridiculous how small the ChG MM is?! It's freakin' tiny. And it's around $5... come on, China Glaze. I had to buy two bottles just because it was so tiny.

And here's a lip combo I thought was cute.

NYX Pinky l/l and Pink Poodle l/g.
The NYX l/l is awesome quality. Pigmented and glides on effortlessly. And it only cost me $2.

Random crap, eh?
Time to go listen to The Beatles and mope around...

2 looks, and some nails!

Hi everyone! One more day til Friday, I'm sure everyone's tired and can't wait for their week to be over. :)

I decided to treat myself a little by painting my nails, since I haven't done them for a while.

Short nails make Clara sad :(
This is OPI Sand In My Suit. Gorgeous color!

My boyfriend decided to be a good sport and let me do his nails. He likes when I shape and buff them, haha, but I decided to take it a step further and add some Konad. I chose plate M38 for his love of wine even though these are champagne glasses... shh :)

Lol, cute, huh? :)
And just to show how much he loved having his nails done:

What a trooper!



Something a bit different for you today! :)
These are some of my biggest inspirations, and when I'm in a makeup rut (which I usually am), I look to these photos to give me ideas.

(I hope these girls don't mind that I used their photos... if anyone does, please tell me and I'll take it down.)

All of her looks are so amazing. Sadly, she hasn't posted on Specktra for a while.



^ I LOVE this look. One of my favorites of all time.. so amazing.

Stephanie is really nice, and I love her blog. She also has flawless makeup skills! ;)


LOVE her blog and looks!!


Those are just a few. I hope you check these talented girls out, and get inspired as well! :)


cutesy nails

I did this konadicure before I cut my nails extremely short (which are shaping up nicely, the stains and ridges are growing out! hooray!). Butterflies aren't really my 'style' but the colors made it a bit more me! I liked this mani :)

smokey look

I was trying to kind of recreate the look I got during my SB makeover (which I didn't like very much, hee hee) but I actually like this! For once, I wouldn't be afraid to wear this in public, even though I have black/purple sparkly disco balls on my eyelids :)
