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…

The Daily Find: MacKenzie-Childs


For today's find, I wanted to share one more Mother's Day pick before we start the weekend. I first noticed this brand in one of my favorite shops in Tulsa - On A Whim on Brookside. The Mackenzie-Childs brand has so many different items for the home and so many different beautiful patterns, though I think my favorite just might be the "courtly check" print.


I do love the Mackenzie-Childs "Flower Market" floral patterns, but when I think about what would go best in my own kitchen, it's probably the check print (and what I assume my fiance would like best too as it's black and white). Though as you can see from the pics, the check print mixes and matches very well with the florals. And after looking through countless pics on their sight and Facebook page, it's safe to say their philosophy is that just about anything can double as a flower vase. How cute is that tea pot floral display?


These lovely prints come on everything from tea pots and serving ware to planters and even doggie bowls. I'm loving the tea kettle and the canisters pictured above. Admittedly, it is quite expensive though. While you can find some items under $100, they're still quite pricey; it's definitely a luxury and a splurge of a gift. I'll include a few similar but more affordable options below. Which ones would you pick? The florals or the check?
