do it yourself nails

2

The holiday times are drawing near, and the gift DIYs are coming in! It’s really easy to buy someone a gift from the store, but when you’re on a budget and want to get something thoughtful, it’s more fun to DIY the gift!

Mug DIYs as a gift are super easy and awesome because everyone uses cups and you can customize it in many ways! I saw a lot of cute mug DIYs, but they either involved Oil-Based sharpies or stickers I just didn’t have the time to get! 

With a quick stop at the local dollar store and a bit of raiding through your make-up bag, you can make this really amazing, expensive-looking mug!

DIY WATERCOLOR-EFFECT MUGS

WHAT YOU”LL NEED

  • Ceramic mug (any shape or size)
  • Nail Polish - preferably 2+ colors
  • Disposable container
  • Tooth picks

HOW TO MAKE IT

  1. Fill the container with warm water - make sure it’s not filled all the way, so the water won’t spill over when you dip the cup in!
  2. Pour some of your nail polish colors in the container one at a time. (I used two, but I can see it working with more colors!)
    1. Note: for me, the nail polish got on the container, and I had to toss it out. Make sure it’s a disposable container!
  3. Use the toothpick to mix the colors into an interesting pattern one stroke at a time! (the nail polish is thick and won’t mix together if you don’t stir too much)
  4. Dip your cup into the mixture - I stayed away from dipping the top where people drink
  5. Optional - Use the toothpick to design with the clumps of nail polish on the mug or left in the container for extra customization! 
    1. Ideas - You can drag the clumps downward into a spiked design like the pink or dot them around into flowers like the blue!
  6. Let dry for 2-3 hours.

Hand wash these only! Otherwise, put on some dishwash safe Mode Podge as a sealant. 

The mug will smell like nailpolish afterwards obviously, but with a good (careful) wash, the smell should go away.

Wrap these mugs up, and now you have the coolest mug gift ever! ♥

IDEA:
Wrap them with hot cocoa mix (and marshmallows?!), coffee, or tea bags for those special friends!!

make this day all about you. take a luxurious bath. exfoliate head to toe. do your hair. do your nails. do some yoga. treat yourself to a nice meal. things like that. make this day purely a “you” day where you take care of yourself and do things that make you feel good & relaxed. pamper yourself & treat yourself like a goddess. you deserve it ❤

Some of you may be able to relate to this. I have very short nails for an adult female. I have always had very short nails and I like them this way. People have tried to shame me for my nails. 

I’ve been asked before “don’t you want long pretty nails? Girls are supposed to want pretty nails.” Yeah but consider this, not all girls do and not me. 

 I have tried out acrylic nails (high school, prom) and it felt strange to me and they didn’t last very long. I ended up taking them off.

 I think that if you want pretty long nails then go for it but don’t try to shame others who don’t agree with you. Having very short nails doesn’t make me or anyone else less female

 So how come my nails are so short? Ever since I can remember when my nails felt too long I would bite them, It was a sensory thing. These days I still bite them sometimes especially when I feel anxious but mostly I just file them down. 

 Here is some information on Onychophgia or nail biting: 

 Who bites their nails? People of all ages bite their nails. About half of all children between the ages of 10 and 18 bite their nails at one time or another. Nail-biting occurs most often during puberty. Some young adults, ages 18 to 22 years, bite their nails. Only a small number of other adults bite their nails. Most people stop biting their nails on their own by age 30. Boys bite their nails more often than girls after age 10. 

 I don’t usually paint my fingernails because that’s when they would get noticed and I would have to hear someone complain and tell me “your nails are awful!” or “I wouldn’t paint them if I were you it makes them look worse!" 

 But I don’t care anymore. I will paint them when I want to paint them regardless of other people’s opinions.

Imagine Ramsay coming back to you after a long battle

prompt number one requested by anonymous

PROMPT REQUESTS ARE OPEN

You sat on the end of your bed, picking at your fingernails absentmindedly. Ramsay hates it when you do that, you thought to yourself. But you always picked at your nails when you were nervous, and this was a time as any to be nervous. A raven had sent a message from the commander of the Bolton army. They had lost the battle harshly and those who remained would be returning home. There was no mention of your lover Ramsay in the message, and you had prayed to all the gods you knew to bring him home safely. Then you heard one of your handmaidens peeked through the door, “My lady, Ramsay has returned.”

You ran as fast as you could to the atrium, your eyes combing the crowd for Ramsay. But he saw you before you saw him, and without warning he pulled you into a long, hard kiss. You wrapped your arms around him, overjoyed of his return. Then the two of you broke apart and you stared into Ramsay’s eyes, trying to find words.

“Ramsay, I–”

“Shh, shh…” he said, pressing his forehead against yours. “I’m here now.”

Sugar Dos and Don’ts Spring 2016

Hi Sugars! 

I’ve been getting quite a few questions about this so I’m going to go ahead and answer them in one master post.  This is geared more towards going on POT dates rather than in an arrangement, but feel free to ask questions if you have them. Here is a brief list:

Sugar Dos

1. Look the part- You cannot be taken seriously by these men if you don’t LOOK worth it. Invest in key pieces (for me these are shoes and bags), and get trendy things for lower prices (everyone knows I LOVE zara for this). Get your nails done (or do them nicely yourself if you can), make sure your brows are always done, same with makeup. If you’re asking for a 6k allowance you better look like you’re worth 6mill. Keep it up, and you’ll get more as time goes out

2. Set Goals- Personal goals that is. My Daddies always LOVE hearing how I’m a Deans List College student at a prestigious university, but that is not everyone. What are you passionate about? Talk about it. These men use you as an escape from their life, and everyone lights up when they discuss something they care about. Hey, maybe he’ll invest in your idea down the road (;

3. Google him- the SECOND you get his real name (if you do), the internet is my key to creeping. If you don’t have his real name, ask him about what he does, likes etc (hopefully you’ve already vetted him to make sure he’s worth $$$).


Don’t

1. Make EVERYTHING about you- Ask him how his day went, pretend that you care (or actually care). Being a good listener has gotten me a long way in the bowl.

2. Sleep with him on the first (or even second) date- This obviously depends on what you’re looking for/ comfortable with but a DEFINITE NO is sleeping with him on the first date. Instead, get to know him, his interests and see if you’re a good fit. 

3. Trust Him- This may just be me, but like any man, he will say what he KNOWS will get you to sleep with him/ lower your price or standards. Nothing is set in stone unless that $$ is in your wallet


that’s it for now!

Your new to-do list:
  1. Say something nice to yourself, even if it’s as simple as “Thank you, toes, for helping me balance”
  2. Smile for 5 seconds
  3. Relax. Let your shoulders drop, loosen your jaw, roll your neck around, unclench your muscles
  4. Take a deep breath in through your nose, hold it for a few seconds, then slowly let it out
  5. Say “I can handle my shit”. I don’t care if you don’t believe it. Say it just to hear what that sounds like.
  6. Do something to take care of yourself. A hot bath, paint your nails, put on an outfit you like, take a slow walk, pet an animal, etc
  7. Ask yourself how doing those things made you feel. Did that feel better or worse than your usual methods of coping? Did it make your anxiety levels any lower?

Be open to trying positive ways of changing how you feel. Don’t say something doesn’t work until you’ve tried it. Do things even when you feel you deserve worse.

It's hard to I've been with him for a year

I’ve been told it takes half the time you spent with a person to get over them. Give yourself time to grieve your lost love. Don’t rush into a new relationship, or rush back to your old one. Just take some time for yourself. Get your nails done, do a facial or whatever makes you happy and keeps you occupied so you don’t have time to think of him. 

Things to do instead of thinking about results day

So if you live in the UK, you know it’s GCSE results day tomorrow! I am absolutely terrified and thought about helping out a few people by giving them some things to keep them busy instead of thinking about results!

-go for a walk
-have a long shower
-have a relaxing bath
-play with your pets
-go shopping
-cook yourself a meal
-go for a meal with family/friends
-have a barbecue
-watch your favourite youtubers
-stay on skype with some friends
-journal
-watch tv/netflix
-play some computer/xbox/ps games
-take a nap (esp if you dont think you’ll be able to sleep tonight!)
-binge watch your fave movie series
-draw/make art
-light some candles
-meditate
-tidy your room
-paint your nails
-do your makeup
-clean out your wardrobe
-listen to your favourite album
-read your favourite book/book series
-remind yourself that no matter what you get, it will be okay!

If you’re going into school to collect your results, or if you’re choosing your a level subjects/college course, make sure you have everything organised so in the morning, you’re not in a panic or a rush. Have the a levels/course you want to do clear in your head, and remember to have a back up plan/subject for if you don’t meet the requirements to do what you wish. You are all amazing and you all tried your very very hardest, I hope everybody gets the results they want and deserve! I’ll be here if anybody wants to talk about their results, their happiness or their disappointment. Good luck everyone!

Clouds and black nail polish

clouds: list your top 5 songs at the moment and how they make you feel.

this is such a DIFFICULT QUESTION. okay here goes:

1. let her go by mac demarco - it makes me feel all summery and ready for things. 

2. family friend by the vaccines - GOD this song makes me feel so happy and good about myself. 

3. mardy bum by the arctic monkeys - makes me feel like just an average teenager. the good kind of average. 

4. sleepwalk by santo & johnny - this song is my ideal song. it makes me feel all warm and loved, like i’m being slowly waltzed around a candlelit room. 

5. teenager in love by dion & the belmonts - like i am the protagonist of a 50′s lovestory that has a really good ending. this is just the sad bit. 

black nail polish: what do you do to pamper yourself? 

i let myself procrastinate like CRAZY! like i’ll just lie there and be fine with it, or i’ll spend some time doing my make-up or taking a really long, warm bath. something that I’VE been wanting.

black nail polish and mocktails !!

Black nail polish - What do you do to pamper yourself?

A nice face mask is one thing, along with these amazing spa socks I got for Christmas. Painting my nails, which I’m actually about to do because I got this new nail polish. Shopping with my mom and her boyfriend who really thinks of me as his kid, too. 

But I feel like the biggest thing I do to pamper and treat myself is take care of my body. My body has obvious been through a lot, so I like to do some light exercise and drink 3 liters of water a day (I know, it’s a lot!), take all my meds, avoid foods that make me sick, and honestly just find some time to relax and let go. Trying to keep myself healthy is a great way to pamper myself. 

Mocktails - Cold weather or hot weather?

Hot weather! The clothes, the aesthetic, the pool, the tans. I just love it. Hot weather makes me pretty happy. 

happy ask list!
