HemisFares Review

2015-08-30 18.06.55

I recently received a package of Hemis Fares pasta, a Kroger Stores exclusive product, to review. Please keep in mind that I did receive this product for free, but I was not paid for my review. Even if I was paid for my review, I would still provide an honest review. I’m on the fence …

Since I’m now a home improvement store garden employee, I’ve been seriously considering redoing my front yard, so I thought I share some of my ideas first before actually getting into it. This is the front of my house: As you can see, it’s pretty trashed. We have a lot of spots where the grass …

Fashion Star: Episode 7

Kara Larick’s suit was baggy. It looked like it was 3 sizes too big on all of the models. And long. I was betting someone was going to buy it – most likely Saks. And after a ridiculously long wait, they of course paid $100,000 for it. Only problem is that no one else wants …

Vegas Baby! Miracle Mile Shops and The Walk Back

After leaving Paris at around 6, we walked over to the Miracle Mile shops. The designer shops were getting a bit old at this point, considering I couldn’t buy anything (except an overpriced chai at Starbucks with my gift cards) but of course I had to take the gratuitous ceiling shot. Hundreds of crystals hung …

Rose Cake

I was commissioned to do a cake for my mom today. Mostly, she wanted to take it to work and peddle my wares, but she’s also using it as a thank you gift to the union at work. She told me I could do whatever I wanted, so I did a little searching on pinterest and Google …

Vegas Baby! Luxor and Excalibur

As I mentioned the other day, I took a trip to Vegas this past weekend, and it was AMAZING! I left insanely early Thursday morning, and fell asleep against the window shortly after takeoff (which is apparently the only way I can sleep on a plane) and half an hour later, woke up when the plane …

Wilton Course 2: Class 1

Yesterday’s class was… anticlimactic. We went over the color wheel, complimentary colors, monochrome… you know, all that stuff they teach you the first week of EVERY art/design class you ever take. We did learn a little bit about fondant and gum paste, then did a bit of mixing and learned how to use the button …

Konad Nail Art

This was originally posted on on November 18, 2011.  The other day I mentioned that I wanted a Konad nail art system, and these videos are why. All I know about it is from YouTube videos, but what I’m seeing makes me want it. Onto the videos. Most of the Konad plates, from what I’ve seen, are …

Random Product Love

This was originally posted on on November 18, 2011.  I’ve been coming across some pretty cool stuff lately, none of which I own, but all of which I thought I’d share. So, without further ado, enjoy some random product love. 1. American Apparel interlock running shorts 2. Plasticland Magic Wand Salt and Pepper Shakers 3. Zgallerie Paquet …

More (fantastical) nail art

This was originally posted on on November 15, 2011.  After my last post, I discovered a ton more nail art videos. Some of them are far from simple, but like I said, I really LOVE nail art! I obviously need to expand my nail polish collection so I can do some of these (like the Phineas and Ferb …
