#FF: The Best Beauty Tumblrs

When in doubt, I’m liable to resort to ~*the internet*~ for help on how to apply beauty products to my face. At time of day, you’re likely to find anything from “Kitten Nail Art Tutorial” to “How to make your eyes stand out” in my Google search bar history. However, when it comes to beauty inspiration as a way to procrastinate learn, Tumblr trumps Google. From beards to model hair, I’ve compiled the top ten beauty Tumblrs for finding inspiration. read more…

Ur Non-Lame Guide 2: Valentine's Day Nailz

Every year, Valentine’s Day seems like an increasingly controversial topic. Maybe it’s because people have pent up anger towards a holiday where we don’t even get the day off of work/school and yet we’re expected to celebrated our undying love for our partner (or pizza). Personally, I’m entertained by the range of V-Day partakers, from the obsessed cinnamon-heart clad fans to the angry single people tweeting about being #foreveralone. Whatever your reaction to the upcoming day, I think it’s fair to say that Valentine’s Day can be significantly improved by sporting glam nailz that totally compliment your Valentine’s personality. read more…

Radiant Orchid ~Beauty Inspiration~

New year, new colour.

Pantone (A.K.A. the ruler of all things colourful) has decided that 2014 is going to be “Radiant Orchid”. Though the name kind of makes me cringe (after all, it sounds like title of a poem I probably read in grade 2!!!), the colour is kind of amazing in that I’m-not-quite-sure-if-it’s-purple-y-pink-or-pink-y-purple. Either way, the colour of this year has billions of ideas to offer, and in the realm of beauty, here are a few of the best! read more…

"Dress" Up UR Nailsz: Golden Globe Inspired Nail Art

The dresses at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards were even more amazing then the Golden Globe Awards themselves. Bold statement, yes, but if you’re like me (and flipping through celebrities in unbelievable evening gowns is enough to put you into a jealousy coma), then it’s no surprise that the dresses at the Globes evoked a “get-in-my-closet-right-now” response. Unfortunately, even if I did have access to any of the floor length masterpieces, it wouldn’t exactly be appropriate to wear one to any of the un-fancy events in my every day life. So, in order to harness some of the best dresses from the Globes, I’m turning to nail art inspired by my favourite gowns. It’s not exactly the same thing as robbing Allison Williams of her Alexander McQueen, but it’ll do… read more…

GET THE LOOK: S/S '14 Inspired Nails


Designers went back to art school this season (we mean that in the best way possible), with prints and makeup inspired by painting and drawing techniques. There were ambiguous c-shapes at Celine, splatters at Vivianne Westwood, and graffiti-like scribbles at Kenzo. Here are ways to bring that inspiration to your nails, because, why not? read more…

Look Your Best With These Fruits and Veggies!

Forget all the expensive serums, conditioners and everything else that is unnatural and filled with chemicals. It’s time to get back to basics – and even back to ancient remedies. There are so many foods from the ground or from the trees that you can put on your plate or straight onto your body that will help you look your absolute beautiful self. So let’s get on the road towards a ~better you~ that doesn’t involve beauty product investments – just a larger grocery bag!  read more…

ATTN: Lazy Girls! This Nail Art Is For You


Source: Style Blazer

You know when you look down at your nails and think: “Ah, yes…those split, uneven nails need a lil’ sum’ sum’…but what?” This is commonly known as “The Lazy Girl Mentality”. A productive girl’s thoughts about imperfect nails might be something more in line with: “Oh, my! My nails aren’t looking like their 100% self today, I am going to schedule in 10 minutes to attend to them”.

Truth is, some of us just don’t have this proactive nail keenness circuited in our brains. And so, to honour/assist the usually “rejected”/dejected lazy girl, here is a tutorial of sorts. Don’t worry, you can thank me later when your nails transition from looking sad and broken to !fresh! and also !exciting!. read more…

Geometric Nails (No Math Required)

Okay okay, so I am aware that the word “geometry” might make you squirm a little – however, this kind of geometry requires no skills you learned (or didn’t learn) in your 12th grade math class.

If you feel that creative ~vibe~ coming on, then this is probably a project that you should jump on ASAP (ROCKY)! Not only does it look killer, but you’ll also feel very accomplished when all your friends start asking you what salon you went to… #winning read more…

Trends That Should End: 2013 Edition


Can you believe that we’ve already surpassed the halfway mark of 2013? Man, time flies. With that in mind, it’s only natural to want to take a look at the majestical situations fashion has brought us in the past year… focusing on the trends that filled the pages of magazines and shopping bags alike. With another year under our belts, perhaps we are a little wiser, and can carefully edit some of the previous so-called ~trendy~ choices that we may have succumbed to over the past few months. Here are some suggestions of trends to say goodbye to by the end of 2013, and some things to maybe (possibly?) replace them! read more…
