Nail Deco Of The Week #114 + DIY Flats + Custom Minion

6 Aug

Frankened hot coral pink

Tokidoki Nail Polish SANDY (glitter)

Bindi inspired nail art :)

Also! My local H&M in west LA had a sale on accessories this weekend (extra 50% off all accessories!)

I grabbed 3 pairs of flats for $2.00 each. :) They’re pretty comfortable and great for some DIY projects!

I painted clouds on one pair last night with white acrylic paint. The bows were removed and replaced with gold paper fasteners. :)

 

I also have one pair of hot pink patent flats! I’m not sure how I want to customize these. Any ideas?

Oh, and here’s my other project! Customizing the McDonald Despicable Me 2 toys!

The fire alarm minion that yells “Bee-do Bee-do!”

LikeTwice.com Review

6 Aug

Hey everyone!

I recently tried out the online thrift site Like Twice!

I bought this Urban Outfitters skirt for $5.56 (postage included!) since I had a $10.00 off coupon (see the end of this post if you’re interested in the coupon!). The skirt arrived within a week and all the measurements and descriptions were accurate. :)

I’m very pleased with my purchase though! The skirt was practically brand new! The items that are accepted at Like Twice are carefully inspected to be in new to like new condition.

I’d like to invite you all to sign up for Like Twice through my link HERE. You will receive $10.00 off your first purchase! :) Shipping is a flat $5.00.

I believe you can sell your gently used clothing at Like Twice as well (although I’ve never tried it).

Have any of you every purchased from Like Twice? :)

Nail Deco Of The Week #111 / Free $5 Sephora GC

28 Aug

Sorry I’ve been MIA again! But I’m back with good news!

If you download the app called “Wrapp” in the Andriod or iTunes market you can send send $5-10 giftcards for free!

If you want to send yourself a giftcard, you’ll need to tell your friend to send you one back. :)

You can also access your account @ https://www.wrapp.com

The free giftcards should say “FREE” next to them, so make sure you’re selecting the right one!

From my screen I could select from $5 Sephora, $5 Office Depot, $5 Gap, $5 Threadless, $10 Fab.com… those are just to name a few of the companies that I’m familiar with. There are a few more too. :)

You just show your smartphone to the cashier with the Wrapp app open and they will type in the #’s. You can also use the Sephora code online, but then you’d have to pay shipping for orders under $50.

I popped by my local Sephora @ Santa Monica this weekend and grabbed some Tokidoki stuff on sale!

My boyfriend offered to let me use his GC so I got to use two $5 GC’s that day! Lucky me. :)

Tokidoki nail stickers +$2.00
Tokidoki nail confetti +$4.00
$5 Wrapp giftcard: -$5.00
Total: $1.56 out of pocket!

Tokidoki eyeshadow in Carnivora: +$6.00
$5 Wrapp giftcard: -$5.00
Total: $1.56 out of pocket!

I believe Tokidoki is doing some kind of clearance on their line at Sephora? The entire section was marked down! I saw some cute brush sets for $14 and mini MU palettes for $4.00 that I kind of regret not buying!

Tokidoki nail confetti – Savana (pink + gold glitter)

Each bottle comes with a small sheet of nail stickers (plastic wrapped to the bottles)!

China glaze – For Audrey
(Do you like my Marc Jacobs Daisy mini in the background? I LOVE perfume minis! :))

Some closeups of the other items that I purchased:

I hope the Wrapp app deal works for you all too! :D

OPI warm & fozzie swatch + JULEP Deal!

22 Dec

OPI – warm & fozzie

Annnnd! If anyone is interested in trying out Julep Polishes, there’s a deal going on right now!

You can sign up for a free starter kit (priced at $19.99) for just $0.01 shipping included with code “SHAREON”.

You basically take a quiz to figure out what type of style you have and they will pick out a set that fits you best.

The quiz can be taken  here: http://www.julep.com/mavens/quiz/

If you do not like your results, you can go here: http://www.julep.com/mavens-1?Page=1&Items=12 to view more choices.

Use the code “SHAREON” to bring your $19.99 order down to 1 cent!
Not sure how long this deal will go on for! I just saw it on Slickdeals (courtesy of poster deliria) and felt that I should pass this on. :)

Now Julep IS a monthly subscription thing, so if you don’t want them to continue to charge your card after your first kit/box you’ll need to call in and cancel!

Hope this helps someone! I just placed an order for the It Girl kit (picture above).

Offtopic: Yorkie in a Bubble Bath Charm

10 Dec

This is my second charm from the Juicy Couture outlet. I had been watching this charm on eBay for quite some time now hoping to find a cheaper price so I was thrilled when I found it at the outlet on Black Friday (…or well, Thursday night really!) <3

There are little rhinestones in the bubbles if you look closely.

If any of you happen to be considering purchasing this charm off eBay, please be careful! There are many fakes!

Offtopic: Yorkie Airplane Charm

10 Dec

Another Juicy Couture charm for my small collection. :) Purchased this one off eBay!

It’s a Yorkie in an airplane! I love how vibrant the orange is… AND the propellers and wheels spin. <3

I’m not so fond of the recent charms that Juicy has released. It seems like the newer charms aren’t very detailed… I hope they change that soon! Until then I’ll keep buying older charms on eBay or the outlets. :)
