Yay! I got nominated for 2 blogger awards by 3 people this week. I am super happy as the people that nominated me are super creative and I honestly look at their blogs every day for ideas and inspiration.

Now for the 7 random things about me:

  1. I am in love with the Japanese animation show Sailor Moon. Now when I say love I mean addicted. I used to watch it everyday when I came home from middle school. When they decided to end it I cried. In my adult life ( me adult ha) I figured out you could watch it on Youtube. I was almost caught up with episodes that I missed when the girl Youtube account got taken down :(.
  2. I am fluent in Pig Latin. I know it is a extinct language and only used in movies an TV shows, but I speak it when I am trying to hide something from my daughter or say something to my brother without anyone catching on.
  3. I love yard sales! The only reason I stop thought is to nab book for cheap!
  4. My brother is my best friend. We tell each other everything, hang out together, and get in trouble together. He has the best personality of anyone I know, he has a I will never see these people again so why do I care attitude and is hilarious. He even saved my life before when I was younger.
  5. I almost was killed by a conveyer belt. My mom worked at FedEx and took me and my brother to work with her one day ( soooo not allowed) and my brother decided to play on the huge conveyer belts that moves packages.  We would jump off before the belt got to the next one, well it was my turn to jump and my pants got snagged. I had to try and hold my self-up as I was between two belts and it was trying to drag me down. My bro stayed with me holding me up and screamed for help till someone came. The scary part was I had long hair and it was a shock that it did not get caught in the belt as well and no more me.
  6. I have a horrible potty mouth. You can say the most innocent thing to me and I will turn it into something raunchy.
  7. I am such a Tomboy. I love video games, comic books, and even snakes. Not scared to pick up a bug, worm or spider.
  8. I am a huge flirt. Can’t help it, it gets me through my day.
  9. I have a huge fear of turning 50. I told family and friends to put me out of my misery at 49.
  10. I have a addiction to bubble gum. If there is a new flavor I have to try it. I even tried chocolate flavored gum.

Very First Tape + Sunshine award nomination

Happy lazy sunday all! First I want to thank Eeeek! Nail Polish! for nominating me for the sunshine award.


I’m shocked at the nomination as she is so good at it and I still a newb. I’m not going to fill out a questionair as I filled it out the first time I was nominated but I would like to shout out the people I have not mentioned before and to resend to the person that gave it to me.







———————————–Tape Mani—————————————————-

I have noticed alot of cool nail designs done with just plain tape and wanted to try it myself. I wanted to shout out who I copied this from but I forget what site I was on. I’m sorry 😦

First I painted 3 different colors on my nail vertically.

From left to right: Ruby Kisses Teal Envy, Yellowed Out, and Tropical Blend

Next I cut out strips of scotch tape and covered my nails diagonally and horizontally. I followed up with a coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black. While the nail polish was still wet I pulled off the tap and Bam! this is what happens.

I love that it kind of has a retro look to it.
