Creative Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs like Fairytale Characters

Saturday, March 24th, 2012


Given that everyone has fairytale fever, now is a great time to merge that into Easter activities. Why not decorate your eggs to look like your favorite characters? Take a look at the images below. We’ve got

  • Snow White
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Sleeping Beauty
  • Ariel from The Little Mermaid

The basic face is the same for all and only requires dots made with a sharpie. You’ll want to dye the top for the hair, and the bottom for the body or dress. (Or fin, as the case may be.) Then you can draw on (or paint on) the extras. You might even have some glitter paint for Cinderella’s dress. You’ll want to keep them forever!

Shopping Haul Blog Post (See the meaning)

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

vitatops reviews

Many want to know the meaning of a shopping haul, and I’m here to explain.

Shopping haul videos are littered over YouTube and they revolve around two ideas. First, the person must have shopped quite a bit (5 items is a good minimum) and then they must be willing to show it all off. For most teens, this isn’t a problem. And even though I’m not a teen and I’m about to do some online shopping, I’m going to do it as well.

See, not just WHAT I bought, but how I decided upon it all.

I’ve actually been lucky enough to do a shopping haul to help promote the ABC Family TV show Jane By Design, where I bought several items – including a cute cat bed for one of the cats. (It was for ShopCat, but ShopKitty stole it. I’ve since replaced ShopCat’s bed with yet another…which is not the exhausting musical chairs you might be picturing has gone on.)

The first two items are for my Dad. He bought a new car (the first new car he’s ever bought!) and it has no ashtray. Unfortunately, he still smokes. (Boooo, I know. It’s not cool.) Anyway, he needs a car ashtray. There are two I was looking at. One is double the price of the other, though! Both have good reviews.

The Best Tasting Lean Cuisine Meals – Your Guide

Monday, March 12th, 2012

best lean cuisine meals

Need a BFF’s educated pov on what Lean Cuisine meals taste great and are worth purchasing? Look inside my guide. I’m 100% honest here.

I think Lean Cuisine makes really tasty, healthy meals. And since I don’t like to cook very often, frozen meals are a great option for me. And I’m picky, so I like to eat things that look pretty and taste delicious at the same time. (And on top of that, I don’t want to spend too much!) After one of my friends asked which Lean Cuisine Meals I liked the most, I decided I should make a list of what I think the best tasting Lean Cuisine meals are!

For all of these, I’ve eaten these at least two or three times. (For some, many more times than that.)

You’ll notice that I prefer chicken dishes over any other kind of meat, and I mostly like meals from the culinary collection that Lean Cuisine offers.

MAC Supersweet Review and Pics (CHEN MAN Collection Spring 2012)

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

mac chen man collection

When I picked up my MAC Supersweet Mineralize Eye Shadow last Saturday, this color was already almost sold out. And it had only just come into stores! I’m pleased with it in general, and want to get the other two limited edition shadows from the Chen Man Spring 2012 collection. Read on to see why.

I’m a major fan of the MAC Mineralize Eye Shadows now. The impact you get, so quickly, is impressive. That’s quality! Yes, you pay a bit more, but I think it’s worth it. We all know MAC makes some wonderful products.


While I picked up Supersweet, I’ve since been wishing I had also gotten Pink Union or Love Cycle. I’m pretty addicted to how easily these apply because I don’t like spending a ton of time on makeup all the time. Often, I’ll spend the time and it’ll look like I’ve put forth almost no effort. Anyway. The reaso ... Read More

How to Remove Glitter Nail Polish Without Foil

Monday, March 5th, 2012

how to remove glitter nail polish

We’ve showed you one way, now here is a tip for removing glitter nail polish without the foil method.

Sometimes you want to be lazy, and that’s okay!

You need:

  • Nail Polish Remover with a lid
  • Felt (white, ideally) from a craft store cut into small squares
  • Hand Lotion
  • Burt’s Bee’s Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
How To Remove Glitter Nail Polish without Foil
  • Pour some of your polish remover into the cap. Then dip your nail in the liquid and leave it there for about 35 seconds.
  • Instead of using cotton balls or cotton rounds, use the tougher and more durable felt.
  • Repeat the first two steps as needed.
  • Rinse hands. Apply hand lotion. Because the remover can hurt your cuticles and make them feel dry, try something that I love – Burt’s Bee’s Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream works and it’s fabulous. If you have one you prefer that you know works, then use that.

    Butterfly Hair Accessories and How to Wear Butterfly Clips in Pics

    Monday, February 27th, 2012

    butterfly hair accessories

    At an early age, I kept binders of inspiration imagery. One of my favorite magazine tear-out’s was a shopping trip that Sofia Coppola did where she picked up some cheap flower hair clips from China Town. They were so unique and vibrant – but I had no clue where to get some for myself. (This was back in the 90’s.) But now that we have online shopping and there are so many great handmade makers on sites like Etsy, it’s hard to pick which butterfly accessories I love the most. Seeing the way the women style their hair to wear them is all so inspiring in itself, it makes me think I ought to make my hair feel fancy (kind of a natural, woodland fairy kind of fancy – though) more often. These images show you how to wear butterfly clips in many different ways. So, get inspired!

    To get in the “romantical”¬† kind of mood you might be seeking, I suggest listening to “Honey and the Moon” by Joseph Arthur.

    Deborah Lippman Glitter Nail Polish in Happy Birthday

    Inside this piece: Tips for removing glitter nail polish like a pro!

    Deborah Lippman Glitter Nail Polish in Happy Birthday

    You can’t deny that glitter nail polish has a major allure for those of us who love to play with our makeup and beauty products. Not only can you use funky, sparkly colors but now people are experimenting with cool ombre effects (or painting your nails all one color except for one nail on each hand that’s a super saturated glitter – it’s totally what the one sparkled glove version of Michael Jackson would have done to his nails if he’d been a woman. Instead of that he just morphed his face a lot… uh, moving on!)

    One thing we love about glitter nail polish is that it has very long staying power. But that’s also a con when it comes to trying to get it off. I’m sure you’ve noticed, getting glitter nail polish off is a major pain. But there is a method you can use that will help you do it fast.

    You need:

    • Scissors
    • Aluminum Fol (cut into ten small squares)
    • Nail Polish Remover
    • Hand Lotion
    • Cotton rounds (cut in half)

    Skinny Pop Popcorn Review: YES, You will Love This!

    Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

    skinny pop popcorn review

    I am so positive about my glowingly positive review of Skinny Pop that you don’t even need to read other Skinny Pop reviews. That’s how much I can assure you that this is the best food stuffs purchase I’ve made in a while.

    Eat it. Love it. Realize it is healthy and has almost no calories! Aaah.

    It’s made with popcorn, salt, and sunflower oil. Somehow, this adds up to low calories but HIGH taste. It reminds me so much of movie popcorn (which I haven’t had in FOREVER because you know I’m not gonna waste calories on that – though movie popcorn is so delicious.)

    And now you know why I love Skinny Pop. It’s so damn good it seems too good to be true. Or like an urban legend. But it does exist. Which is the best part. It’s real!

    I’m actually a harsh food critic. I just said to my friend, Alix, “A granola bar without chocolate is insulting.” I mean, I know they’re supposed to be healthy but ugh, they have to taste good or I’m ignoring them.

    It’s all natural. It’s cholesterol free popcorn. It’s gluten free popcorn. There’s no dairy, no nuts, none of that. It’s the perfect storm of taste!

    THIS many positive reviews on Amazon can’t lie. You can ... Read More
