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.

It was beautiful on, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that under different lighting it went from a true blue to a sparkly greenish blue that looked even more...mermaid-ish if you ask me. When it came time to take i…

Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes


For fall, I love making pancakes with pumpkin, apple, or maple flavors. I do love to bake from scratch, but when it comes to weekend pancakes, I like to start with an easy pancake mix. It's so easy to take it up a notch with milk, extract flavorings and fresh fruit. For easy pumpkin pancakes, we simply added canned pumpkin puree and some pumpkin pie spices. My new favorite thing to add to fall recipes is concentrated liquid maple flavoring. You can make these pancakes without the maple flavoring, but if you have the chance to pick some up for the recipe, it is well worth it. You can add it to countless fall recipes like bread pudding, pumpkin muffins, apple pie, etc.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups dry boxed pancake mix
  • 1 & 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring (optional)                 

*Note: If you're starting with pumpkin spice pancake mix, simply omit the spices above and just add the milk and pumpkin puree.


I topped our pumpkin pancakes with my Easy Salted Caramel Sauce and some chopped pecans. It's the perfect indulgence for a fall brunch, especially if family is in town for the holidays. Enjoy!

  2. Krisztina, I can only look wistfully at the food photos and wish I had a live-in chef to make them for me--but I have used many of your household suggestions successfully. I wonder, have you ever thought about doing a Q&A page? I have a lot of questions!

    1. Lol. Well, I'm so happy to hear you've been able to put some of my info to good use.:) Yes, I've really been thinking about doing a Q & A page lately, so it's so funny that you ask. I need to get on the ball and get a page like that up for the holidays! It would be a great place for people to leave any additional questions in the comment section.
