Friday’s 5 Loves 3.29.13

Friday LovesI’m so sorry I haven’t shared my 5 favorite things for a few weeks. I’ve just been in such a rut lately and I honestly don’t know why. Wednesday was the first time in a little while that I felt 100% like myself and was “hungry”. Hungry for more. Hungry for life. Hungry for Curls and Mo…if that makes any sense. My urge to push Curls and Mo was renewed and I worked on a few things I had been neglecting like Curly Card Night. Here are the things I loved this week… Continue reading

Review: Lemongrass Spa lemongrassI was recently sent three products from Lemongrass Spa to review. I was excited when I received them because I hadn’t heard of the company before but I liked the information I read on the website. I’m going to combine the three reviews into one and share my Lemongrass Spa experience with you. Continue reading

Mani Monday: Leopard Anyone? - manimon 031813-4For today’s manicure I decided to take another leap of faith and try a leopard manicure. My last “leap of faith” aka the Ombre Nail FAIL should have been enough to make me stop experimenting but … that wouldn’t be any fun. This past Saturday I re-created a look by @noemihk, a nail artist I love on instagram. You can see my “Easter Meets Midnight” look here. - manimon 031813This weekend I saw this look (above) by @noemihk that I really liked and I decided to give it a try. I’ve wanted to try leopard for a while but have always been intimidated. - manimon 031813-1@noemihk used black, pink and gray: simple staple colors in my opinion. However, I let a friend borrow my light gray so I decided to use white instead. I played around with the different whites I own and settled on Wet n Wild Break the Ice;it has some sparkle and shimmer. I also chose a deeper pink than @noemihk used, Wet n Wild Through the Grapevine. The black is by Mavala. I used one of the makeup brushes I received in a set recently. I think it’s for eyeliner but I needed something to use as a dotting tool and it works perfectly.

What do you curlistas think? Did I do a good job? Have you tried leopard nails before? Make sure you check out my girls below, we’re all linked up! 🙂 - manimon 121012-3

Mani Monday: My OPI Steal! - manimon 030413-1After the holidays I visited ULTA (just to browse) and I found a set of 10 mini O.P.I. nail polishes for only fifteen bucks – and it was the only one. Of course I couldn’t leave it behind! It has 10 mini OPI colors all wrapped up into one package. This weekend I finally cracked that baby open and chose OPI’s “Kiss Me on My Tulips” for this week’s mani. I was undecided at first on whether I Continue reading
