DIY Mermaid Nails

I've been promising you guys a new makeup tutorial, and here it is - a beautiful DIY mermaid mani! It's so perfect for Summer, and I promise you, it's quite easy to do. I was so inspired by the samples I recently received from Nail Social Nail Brand. I have to say, when I first saw the colors, I knew they were a little bit out of my typical comfort zone. Honestly, I haven't worn sparkly blue nail polish since college, which was quite a while ago for me. For years I've stuck with pinks, reds, and purples; with the most adventurous of my manis being hot pink (and only when hot pink was very on-trend). None the less, I was ready to try this "24K Mermaid" polish. Objectively speaking, as blue sparkly nail polishes go, it was pretty after all.

Music Monday: Sara Bareilles ~ Brave



I have been obsessed with Sara Bareilles's music since her first album and loved her sound even more when her second album Kaleidoscope Heart came out. When she performed her new hit single "Brave" on the Today show earlier this month, she revealed that the lyrics were inspired by her gay friend who is struggling with coming out, though the words to "Brave" can appeal to many other situations as well.

To me it's about being brave enough to speak up whenever you're unhappy or hurt, whether it be in a relationship, at your job, or elsewhere. I know it's scary sometimes, especially facing the fear that even if you ask for what you need, the other person still might not want to give it to you. Unfortunately that's the only way out of a miserable situation...either they give you what you need, or you have to face the fact that they can't, and you need to move on. Even in the worst situation, there is still a huge sense of freedom and relief in having said what you needed to say. At least then you can blame the fu#ker, right?;)

In any case, enjoy the video...take a little break from the Monday blues. It features odd people dancing like crazy in public - sure to bring a smile to your face!
