Skull Valentine's

My mom is such a sweetheart, she got me a surprise Valentine's Day gift! She knows how much I love skull, so while out at a local market she found these skull earrings and necklace and picked them up for me as a V-Day gift. I absolutely loved the skulls but didn't really like the style of the jewelry so I just took them apart and redid them to suit my taste.

Who needs a boyfriend to buy me jewelry when I have a sweet mom like mine! Another really cute thing my mom did/does all the time when she gets me a holiday card she always signs it with love from her and my dad but then she'll also always write down all my cats names too! When I was away at college she would send me two cards one from my family and one from the cats, I always liked that she did that it was just so cute and heartwarming especially since she knows I love my cats so much!

Beat Your Heart Out!

Happy Valentine's Day! So this is the last V-day mani and the one I'm currently rockin' and have been for the past weekend. This is defintely my favorite of all my V-day manis and probably of all the nail art I've done so far! I just think the little heart is just so cute! I used a sharpie to draw it for precision and ease and then traced over it with the Black Art Deco polish.

No nail art today but still a very pretty polish and a good color to wear on V-Day!

Cherry Mani

This is my 2nd V-day themed mani, heart shaped cherrys! I really like the way this came out and I'm glad I added the rhinestones because it really made the mani that much more girly.

Jungle Love

This is my V-day mani, which is just a leopard print mani in V-day colors. I really like this because it's not overtly Valentine's-y with hearts, its a bit more edgey if you will.

Domestic Goddess & Zoya

This was a mani I had on some time last week with glitter! So sparkly, I loved this one! I did glitter on the entire nail of my middle finger and thumb and just the tips on the other three fingers.

This is dedicated to the one I love: Christine

You know how sometimes you hear a song and it just takes you back to a certain time in your life and brings back memories of certain people, well all these songs remind me of my dear friend Christine and our time spent away at college. Today one of these songs came on and then it got me thinking of all the great times spent in our dorm room freshmen year at UT, as most of these songs pertain to memories from that yr. Anyway on to the songs!

- Cyclone by Baby Bash: This song reminds me of Christine not some much because we would listne to it all the time but one time we were on our way to a party with another bff Nora and one of had the song in our head and we said we wanted to hear the song so that we could move our body like a cyclone and christine said she didnt need to hear the song to move her body like a cyclone because she always moves her body like a cyclone! This is especially funny because if you know Christine you know she doesnt dance! LOL

- Time after Time by Cyndi Lauper: From all the times we would watch Romy & Michele's High School Reunion.

- Una Palabra by Carlos Varela: Just a song we both really liked and would listen to a lot.

- Fergalicious by Fergie: This was Christine's jam, she would wanna hear it all the time and would sing along to it.

- From A Shell by Lisa Germano: Another song we really like and would listen to a lot, Christine also introduced me to this song.

- Money Maker by Ludacris: We love Ludacris and this is one of our faves by him! We even lip-synced this song at a party! LOL

- Un Ano De Amor by Luz Casal: A song we both really liked and would listen to a lot.

- Come on Petunia by The Blow: This song out of all these songs is "our" song. We would listen to this over and over to the point were we could sing-along perfectly to it!

So yeah its a random mix of songs but they all bring back good memories and are all good tunes!
