Last Minute Shopping??

Gifts to buy your loved ones last minute!!

I know we all have procrastinated at this before.  Or we just don't know what to get at all!  Heres a quick list of things that could help us last minute gifters!

Guys for me always have been so hard to shop for, but heres a few foolproof gift ideas that you could always end up buying!

  • Cologne?? After researching I found out that Lacoste's Essential, the classic Ralph Lauren for men, Obsession by Calvin Klein, Dolce & Babbana, and of course the classic Abercrombie are some top liked scents!
  • A Book series or DVD series of his favorite show(s)??  That way, when he watches them he'll surely think of you :)
  • Clothes or accessories are always nice.  Can't go wrong with a nice pair of boots, ties, or sweaters!
  • Tickets to his favorite concert or sports team always is a great idea!
  • And then theres always the old saying, "Making a gift is more sentimental then buying one".  So you can make a scrapbook of your times together or something off Pinterest!  It shows you really put thought and time into him!
Girls are really happy with almost anything!  Anything from clothes, to makeup, to nail polishes, to books always works!!

Don't stress to much about what you get as a present.  The saying, "It's the thought that counts" really is true!  
Happy Holidays!

Mani Mondays!

Merrry Mani Monday! 

Bright Lights

Who doesn't like the holidays??  My favorite part is all the lights and red and greens!  So with that in mind, I decided to do a mani showing off the bright lights!

So as usual, make sure your nails are filed, cut, and polished clean!

Now go ahead and use a white type of polish for a base.  

Then this is where it gets a tad tricky!  I used a black piece of thread to shape as the "string holding the lights."
I did different variations as you can see for the strings.  
The step is to polish once with a top coat, then quickly lay down your string as desired, THEN quickly again go over with a top coat.  This helps ensure the thread will stay.  

Once it is dried, go ahead and dot on green and red lights! and Voila!!

You are now ready for the holiday weekend!
Have a great fun filled start of the holiday week!! 
Remember, it truly is better to give than receive!
