Under $50 Gift Guide for a 23 Year Old

Hello everyone! So one of my guy friends texted me a couple of days ago and asked what gifts I recommend for him to get his 23-year old friend! I thought that a lot of people may be lost on this same scenario so I decided to write this post! Here are my suggestions:

REVIEW: NatureBox

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to tell you about my experience with NatureBox!

Erica’s Table of 20 Ft. Janeé Bolden & Mimi J

Hello everyone! This past weekend I had the privilege of going to “Erica’s Table of 20”. It was an event that took place at Nieman Marcus and consisted of two featured speakers: Bossip Deputy Editor Janeé Bolden and Celebrity Makeup Artist Mimi J. It was such an inspiring afternoon to hear these ladies talk as well as be surrounded by other women who work so hard. My takeaways from the speakers are to work towards what you’re passionate about, make your brand unique, and stay consistent with the way you market yourself.

REVIEW: Essie Nail Polish in "Penny Talk" + Keep

Hello everyone! I have always loved metallic colors so I’m excited to review the Essie nail polish in the color “Penny Talk” for you! It is from the Essie Mirror Metallics Nail Polish Collection.
A neutral metallic to me is such a wearable color. In the bottle, the nail polish is a beautiful coppery color but surprisingly in natural light the polish actually looks a little pinkish. This doesn’t really bother me as the color is still really pretty- I was just surprised it didn’t look copper all the time.

"Try" by Colbie Cailat

Hello everyone! Many of you by now have heard the song “Try” by Colbie Cailat but I wanted to share the music video with you today. It has such a great message and I think it is something that females of all ages should watch.

I want to leave you with the reminder that whatever you decide to do or whatever you want to change about yourself, make sure you’re doing it because you want to, not because of someone else.

Have a great week beauties!

DIY: Polka Dot Clock!

Do you have any decorations in your room that could really use a little bit of glitter and color? Well that was my wall clock for me. I decided to change it up one night and add some details to the plain white borders around the clock. All I used to add the dots was different nail polish colors! Here’s how to decorate your clock:
Things you need: 1 clock, 3 nail polish colors

1) Using the first nail polish color, draw a circle and then fill it in. Make sure to not use too much polish so that it doesn’t drip. Space the dots about two inches apart so you have room for the other colors.

2) Do the same technique but with the other two colors. You can also do half circles if you run out of room!
3) When you’re finished painting, let it try for about 15 mins. Then hang it on your wall with a nail!

And voila you are finished! Super easy and super quick project. Send me a picture if you make one!
