My first YouTube video!!

Ok yall, so I know this isnt the greatest video, BUT im super stoked about it!!  Its my very FIRST YouTube video :D  You hafta start somewhere right?  I hope you enjoy!!

Simple French tips with a Spark!

Good morning and Happy Mother's Day!!  I thought I would do a simple French tip mani for today, but I couldnt just do white tips!  I had to add a spark to them, so I chose to add the Northern Lights holographic top coat.  I hope you like it!!

The products I used are: Beauty Secrets base coat, Orly French Tip White Tips, Kiss Nail Art paints Silver, Northern Lights Hologram Top Coat silver and Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Strengthening topcoat.

I start off with the base coat then add the Northern Lights as my "pink", since I like my nailbeds pink color, I dont use a French pink. I then freehand my white tips and add a silver line at the base of the white for a more finished look (seeing as I can not get a perfect straight tip lol) Then finish off with SH topcoat for shine. :) and here is the finished mani!

I hope you like it and thank you for lookin!! Have a wonderful day yall!! <3

May 2011 Birchbox

My May 2011 Birchbox arrived the day before Mother's Day!!

Mom knows best, which is why this month we're celebrating everything she's taught us over the years.  From dressing up to cleaning up, she has plenty of good advice.  This box is filled with elegant products that will always be in style, just like Mom. ~Birchbox

Birchbox is a monthly subscription ($10 US) that sends you 4 to 5 deluxe size samples of beauty products, from makeup to haircare to skincare and more! You can visit their site here to find out all you need to know.  Plus they have tips and tricks and also FREE shipping on the full size products they offer that month!!

Now onto my May box goodies!!

My excitement started when I saw there was a FULL sized Stila eyeshadow!! I got the pretty plum color Dahlia
(and my pictures do it no justice >.<)
Also in my box came Erno Laszlo Transphuse Night Serum, Archipelago Pomegranate soap, Bulgari Mon Jasmin Noir, a Tiny Prints card and the monthly extra was Oribe Beautiful color shampoo and conditioner packets. 

They send along a detailed card as to what is in the box and how much the full size products are on the Birchbox site.

I was so excited to get this box the day before Mother's Day!!  I picked it up while I was in town with my Mother and we opened it together! :)  She loved the Bulgari, so of course that became hers!! Now she is contemplating subscribing herself so she can get her own box LOL.  I hope, to all of you mothers out there, that you have a wonderful day with your familys!!  And to everyone else, Yall have a wonderful day as well!! <3
