Manicures and Audrey Hepburn!



Capitol colours

hi Everyone,

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick." -Audrey Hepburn

To me there’s nothing more luxurious than a beautiful manicure, Aubrey Hepburn said it very well above :)

This is an easy way to have fun with your nails by using crackle. I’m loving the Hunger game line by China Glaze


  • China Glaze hunger game line,
  • Revlon Crackle duo nail polish,
  • Sally Hansen Diamond finish clear coat.

First start by applying the base colour, let dry.



Apply the crackle finish, let dry.




Voila a fun way to apply texture and art to your manicure :)

Which hunger game colour will you be getting?

Have a great day,

Furniture Redo in 30 minutes!




hi Everyone,

I’ve watched tons of YouTube videos, and followed several great furniture diy guru that have linked at passionately artistic linking parties.

I went to Lowes purchased everything I need, I’m pretty sure you know what happen next.

I turned on the sander at first swipe I took most of the wood off and chip the finish, yep that’s what happen. Did I mentioned I’ve had this dresser since I was 12 years old, yep it’s an antique alright :)

Here’s how to fix the booboo :) shhhh….. no one will know. I promise :)

All wasn’t lost, I went back to my knowledge of crafting used paints and distressed it like it was supposed to be that way.

Here’s what I have used!



  • Add a mixture of the champagne and glaze together then paint sporadic section of the dresser using a medium size brush.
  • Repeat the same process for the Espresso let dry.
  • Add faint line by using the same mixtures as above to create distress lines, let dry.
  • Distress the corners using a sander lightly, then repeat the process above.




Once dry change the dryer pulls, I purchased these at Hobby Lobby while they were 50% off.

Here’s the finished dresser, very easy :)


have a fantastic day :)

Food truck wars of 2012




Let’s go to food truck wars of 2012 in the city of Oviedo!

What is Food truck? According to Wikipedia it’s

A food truck, mobile kitchen, mobile canteen, or catering truck is a mobile venue that sells food. Some, including ice cream trucks, sell mostly frozen or prepackaged food; others are more like restaurants-on-wheels. Some may cater to specific meals, such as the breakfast truck, lunch truck or lunch wagon, and snack truck, break truck or taco truck.

Today’s food truck is nothing frozen or prepackaged.

Here’s what my invite said!

Food Truck Crazy is pleased to bring the first ever Food Truck Wars to Central Florida.

The event will take place in the City of Oviedo at Oviedo Mall from Noon to 6:00pm.

This family friendly event will consist of 4 major components: First and most important will be 30 to 40 gourmet food trucks battling it out for 5 Food Truck Wars awards and prizes. The categories will be the Peoples choice award, the Chef off (judged by nationally renowned chefs), the Largest food item, food truck appearance and top food sales during the event.

There will also be a beer garden, a silent auction to benefit local charities & live music.

Food Truck Crazy has invited ALL food trucks to be a part of this great event and hopes to extend it to other areas of the State. “Bring it on” is the mantra for this event.

The heat is on and the food truck craze is just beginning. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to bring this community a wonderful family friendly event and to have Central Florida be the first” said Ms. Otts, President of Food Truck Crazy, Inc., the shows producers “now we just pray for a beautiful day”.

It was a beautiful day then around 3 pm it started pouring for 20 mtes, then the sun came out again :)



As you can see the lines were long, the food was amazing. I’ll suggest bringing a chair to seat most food truck events only have high top tables no chairs…

Have a great day,

By now I’m sure you have seen all the mint and tangerine colours you care to see in Fashion, Home Accessories and even food Coloring.






Today I’m going to show you how you can create your own fashion trend by using your left over stickers from your scrapbook stash.

I have a lot of K&Company rubon stickers, that have small images that are perfect for nails.




  • Polish nail with base coat, let dry
  • Add colour let dry




  • Rub sticker with pad of fingertip gently over the nail
  • Add a layer of clear base to seal the sticker
  • Add crackle to remaining finger tips (optional)




Voila, instant nail art decoration from your stash :)
