Ouija Board Halloween Nails from Maniology!

I recently decided to get a Halloween bundle from Maniology and I have to say I was NOT disappointed by what I got! I got two stamping plates, a special Halloween themed scrap and stamper, as well as three gorgeous polishes to try. Not only will I review how this product worked for me, but I’ll also show you a custom design I did using the polishes I had on hand.

How to Make This Pumpkin Spice Bath Salt

This is the month where Pumpkin Spice really shines I think. How can you resist a warm pumpkin spiced latte or some delicious pumpkin bread? I could honestly bath in the smell of pumpkin spice…and then I found this recipe. The ingredients list is only four items long and the smell is amazing. It’s also extremely easy to assemble and perfect if you want to get your little ones involved.

Introducing Maniology!

For those of you who have followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that I almost exclusively used MoYou London in the past. Recently, however, I’ve found their customer service as well as how they seem to take their customers for granted made me think I should broaden my scope to include other manicure businesses. So I went out looking for another nail company that was equal to them in quality and product as well as showing their customer appreciation. That’s when I found Maniology. Not only is their polish top-notch, but they offer mini starter sets so you can try them before you drop a lot of money on something you may not like. I used their products exclusively (with the exception of a ridge filler) to get this gorgeous look!

Crystal of the Month: Carnelian

To be honest, Carnelian was not my favorite crystal. Slowly though, over time it’s grown on me. I’ve come to really appreciate it’s reddish-orange color and then once I started learning about its metaphysical properties, I started to like it even more. This is also the natural birthstone for those born from August 22 to September 22, so if your birthday falls in that range be sure to read on!

How to Make This Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub

When I lived in Florida one thing I can remember seeing in tourist shops were boxes of beautifully wrapped grapefruits. They would be nestled like big golden eggs in the usually green grassy crimped paper, and I remember not understanding why anyone would buy those things when we could just go to the store and buy them. Now I live up here in Massachusetts and I get it. To have those perfect looking orbs mailed to you buy someone living in a place of seemingly perpetual summer while you have anywhere from 3-6 more months of cold weather, is a nice gesture! However, in this post, I’m going to show you how you can have that fun citrus smell all year long with this sexy sugar scrub!

Some people hate summer….I am not one of those people. I adore the heat, the barbeques, the pool and beaches, and seafood.

These nails are TOP NOTCH TROPICAL and I hope you love them! (more…)

How to Make Mermaid Salt Scrub

Growing up I adored anything about the ocean or mermaids. My family didn’t have a pool, but when my mom would set up a little kid pool in the backyard I basically lived in it. I still LOVE the ocean and while I don’t think mermaids are real anymore if they were, they’d LOVE this salt scrub!
