A day of D.I.Y on a day Off!

The above frames are 2 ugly cheap frames I picked up at a thrift store because I like the texture and pattern. They were less than $2..00 for the set so I couldn't pass them up.
I think someone attempted a D.I.Y antiquing but to me it looks like they were caught in a fire!

Shiny with camea flash but..

See how ashy they look ^ :(

I knew I had some fun paint left over from an earlier project so I knew these uglies would be pretties very soon!

After painting them I decided to have one be a french theme so I turned to my favorite Pinterest for some great ideas and I found this fun Paris picture, printed it and popped it in.

What should I put in the second frame....

My other project was Strawberry & Cream muffins that I also found on Pinterest. This has to be my favorite recipe I have tried in a long time.
 I think they came out fabulous and they are addicting!

Kim-pletely In Love

Kim-pletely in Love
Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kollection
Baby pink with blue/purple glitter
Very sheer at first, too 3 or 4 coats and is still kind of streaky.
I love love love the color but the formula kills it for me..

This is how I feel when I have to apply more than 2 coats of nail polish!

 I think this video is just adorable!

My treasure

I was wandering around a local junk store the other day when I noticed this pretty baby on the shelf.
Upon closer inspection I learned that it was only $2.99 and there were no cracks or chips..

And hiding under the price tag was FENTON

Its a deep purple glass, Amethyst I believe is the correct term with butterflies and a beautiful oil spill sheen!
It is intended to be a bonbon dish but I haven't decided what I will use it for.. jewelry maybe.

Lush Cupcake mud mask

I recent purchased from LUSH their Cupcake mud mask and I have used it twice so far. For around $7 you get a small black tub with enough mud for about 6 masks. The consistency is similar to thick brownie mix after its been in the refrigerator. It has a strong cocoa butter smells and it seems hydrating to me. I apply a thin layer, wait about 15 mins and once its hardened/tightened I wash it off and it makes my skin feel really clean and smooth. Its suppose to help with acne prone skin but I haven't seen any change yet in that department. The expiration date is 4 weeks from purchase and must be kept in the refrigerator, which means I usually forget about it. LUSH has a return program where 5 black pots will get you a free face mask!

Overall it smells like chocolate, leaves my skin clean/cuts oiliness and is just fun. I rate it a B.
