Pussycat Dolls Workout

I need to tell everyone about the Pussycat Dolls workout! I am in love with this video, and I can say that it really works! I do a workout from this video 3 times a week and I can really see that its working! If you want to dance and have fun while working out this is the video for you! I also really love the main singer from the Pussycat Dolls Nicole Scherzinger she just left not too long ago to start her own solo career, the last video is one of her new songs. Enjoy!!

French Macarons Day





So on the weekend I really felt like making french macarons.... they all tasted soo good but the turned out flat... maybe I need to blend everything longer... going to try making them closer to x mas one more time lets hope they turn out the way they should. The other thing about making macarons is that they really take a long time to do, so you really need a lot of time to work on them.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Review

So I reviewed this salon effects for your nails. With step by step photos.



This is all the items you get in the little box.

First you need to push your cuticles back.

then shape your nail.

give nails one last swipe of nail polish remover

find the
best fitting strip for your nails.. I found non of them fit me will so I had to cut all of them to fit


place strip on nail and smooth with other end of the file

pull the escess nail sticker off

I added clear nail polish for extra hold

and your done!

I love love loved the look at the end but the hard part was finding strips that fit your nail. I also found because of this it took me about an hour to do this... so they make it seem like its so easy no dry time peel and apply but I think this took longer in the end.

I give these polish strips 8.0 out of 10.

Interview with Leslie Levings from Beastlies

 Hi everyone here is a new interview with Leslie Levings, I really look up to her and her work. She is the owner of Beastlies I hope you fall in love with her work as much as I have!

I must ask, what inspires your designs?
--I love creatures, real and imaginary. Everything from animation to a trip to the aquarium makes me want to sculpt something new.



What ‘look’ are you going for with these your Beastlies?
--They just sort of evolved into this look on their own, really... I used to sculpt things like dogs, birds, and rabbits, but gradually my work started morphing into these little monsters. I'm always just trying to achieve some kind of spark in their expression, something that makes them funny or sweet or sympathetic or absurd or relatable.





 Do you have any tips for new Etsy sellers?


--Keep listing things! Don't let your shop just sit, even if sales are slow. And keep honing your craft every day: Even if you're amazing now, you'll be twice as amazing in a year if you've practiced your art constantly.
 
Other than your Etsy shop is there anywhere else where readers can find out more about Beastlies?


-- beastlies.com has got links to everything!

How did you become interested in creating such a unique craft?


--I used to sculpt little animals and characters when I was a kid. Sculpey is so great for making your own toys, you know? I went to art school and studied other things, but nothing has ever been as fun as sculpting little critters, so that's what I came back to.


Other than your shop, do you have another occupation or a ‘day job’? If so, what is it? Do you have a background in sculpting or art school? 


--I studied photography and writing in school, so no actual sculpting background. I quit the day job about a year ago, and now I'm just focusing on the Beastlies.

Anything you want to share about any up and coming plans?
--I've got some things in the works that I hope I'll be able to share very soon! Stay tuned...
