The Dreadful Hangnail: Prevent and Fix Them


I'm sure that most of us love testing out new nail polishes and almost all of us has a habit of biting and picking our cuticles (me included) so here are a few tips on how to prevent or get rid of hangnails if and when they occur.

But first, what are hangnails? Hangnails are usually dried skin that occur on the side of the nails but they can also come from the actual nail plate that are caused by the picking and biting of the nails. But why are hangnails so damn painful? If the hangnail is still attached to the live skin or nail bed then may the good lord be with you and the pain you are about to feel (lol)

So how do we treat a hangnail? Apply vitamin E oil to the area where the hangnail is immediately after you start feeling pain and reapply several times a day to keep the area hydrated. The oil absorbs into it very quickly and can also help in the healing process. Trim the hangnail with a cuticle scissors or a nipper once it is softened and please for the love of God DO NOT PICK IT (I learnt the hard way).

Lastly, to prevent a hangnail try to avoid biting your nails or skin and get into the habit moisturizing your cuticles daily with an oil like olive oil or cuticle oil. It will keep it from getting dry or brittle and will also keep the nail matrix hydrated which is where your nail plate grows from. Also, when polishing your nails always remove any polish that gets on your skin. Nail polishes, including base and top coat, is drying to the skin.

Halloween Look: Pop Art Comic

Hey darlings!

So I saw on youtube that a lot of people were doing this Halloween tutorial for a Pop Art Comic look so I decided to give it a go. I was actually doing the look for the first time in the tutorial below. I didn't practice nor did I have a pic to look at. I just went with a image in my head that I saw from the other tutorials and I thought it was pretty good. Wouldn't you agree? It might be a bit different from what you see in other tutorials because of the coloured wigs other people used in their tutorials but being a girl with dreads there was no way that was happing lol (not that I have anything against wigs its just that my dreads are long and it would be a hassle to put on a wig) so this is my version of a Pop Art Comic Look. Enjoy :-)

DanniLittle.com Review

Hey guys so a couple of weeks ago a designer by the name Danni Little contacted be and asked me to do a review for her on some accessories. I was given the opportunity to choose two pieces and immediately the Lovestruck earrings and the Bit Me pin caught my eyes. 

The Lovestruck earrings are heart shaped in the colour red with little hearts inside it made to look like a smiley face which I thought was the cutest thing EVER. The Bit Me pin I thought had a lot of attitude and screamed DOPE and what really caught me was the little faces arround the word which is so cute. She also sent me an extra piece which is pin with her logo on it. 

Both the Lovestruck earring and the Bite Me pin is made out of wood and are hand made which I thought was super duper original and awesome. I couldn't really find one fault with the pieces. I love them so much and I could really appreciate someone like Danni Little who is such a talented designer that can create such wonderful pieces from wood. If you're a person that really appreciates artistic pieces like the designs from this talented artist/designer then I urge you to go check out her website www.dannilittle.com. She also designs other stuff such as clothing, blankets and even baby clothing. Below are picture of the pieces she sent me.

Vanessa Hudgens Looking Stunning In Gorgeous Maria Lucia Hohan Yellow Gown



So I'm scrolling down my Tumblr dashboard as I always do and BAM! I see Vanessa Hudgens in this GORGEOUS yellow gown. I was so mesmerized by this beautiful yellow gown that I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to blog about. I immediately started searching the net to find the talented designer who created wonderful masterpiece and found out it was by Maria Lucia Hohan. Before I found out who designed the dress I said to my partner that this designer must be the happiest person in the world. How Vanessa through that dress in the air.......OMG! PERFECTION. She definitely rocked the hell out of that dress. Then come to find out that this was a dress she wore to the premier of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island back in February but who cares that I'm soooooo late just seeing this dress. It's so gorgeous that felt it was worth blogging about even7 months later. She glowed in it and it is to die for. See the pics below
