My new obsession, is not an obsession at all. I just can’t throw away money for manicures anymore. I’ve gotten into the habit of doing them myself. I’m just..so rough on my nails, that a $20 manicure, gets chipped by the second day. Lamesauce.
So, I found on Konad on Amazon. Konad is a special polish, special design plates, and a rubber stamp to place the design on your nail.
- Place the special polish X-design.
- Scrape off the excess with the scraper.
- Place the rubber stamp on the design.
- Place the rubber stamper on your nail.
- And wha-lah!
You get leopard printed nails! So much cooler than those faux sticker nail things that are trendy right now.
For snowcones! Ever since Indiana posted about her addiction to Casey’s New Orleans Snowballs, I had been craving one myself. Unfortunately, I never got to check out Casey’s before I left the great city of Austin.
I did, find the next best thing that I could in Houston; all thanks to Yelp.

I have always, and I mean, ALWAYS, been skeptic of a pair of tweezers that cost about a half of tank of gas. I’ll let you do the math. Really, what’s the difference between a high-end pair of tweezers from Sephora and a $5 pair from the local commercialized store 2 blocks from your house? A.LOT.
I’ve been through a few tweezers that were only useful if the hair was longer than long. My last pair was okay in the sharpness department but rusting. That pair had a date with the trash last week. I finally invested in a good pair of tweezers; pink leopard print Tweezermans! The sharp and thin bladed point on them is so precise, it will grab EVERY. THING.
Tweezerman has a ton of different colors and styles of tweezers. My pink cheetah tweezers ran me about $25.00. Definitely worth the splurge!
How was your 4th of July?
After an unusually short shift at work, I spent my 4th with a nap and a spontaneous trip (wearing Reef sandals, Nike Tempo shorts, and a tee!) to a park in Houston to watch the fireworks.
I’m always mesmerized by fireworks. The loud boom, the colors, and shapes..all from a little bit of gun powder.
Here’s to the halfway point of summer being almost over! I’m needing boots and tights season.
