Short Gyaru Nails

I've been going crazy with acrylics lately, and all the filing has made my nails weak yet again. Always a vicious cycle with false nails!

But I think you can still have cute nails even if they are short! As long as you don't go overboard with colors or deco pieces, short nails can be lovely too.

I used one color, a drop of nail glue to secure the stud, and then a clear gel top coat.

Do you think these are Gyaru, or just meh? I personally like to have options when letting my nails rest from acrylics.

Lots of Love,

Easter - Past Due!

Hey lovelies! So sorry I forgot to post Easter Pictures, but I have been busy with school! Anyway, I dyed my hair pink, so its quite bright - but it is still a work in progress as I want to add some lavender color as well.

And you get to see my cute niece - Kaiya ^-^

Black and Blue Nails

Here are some nails I did quite a long time ago (January I think) but I forgot to share! I used black polka dot tips and painted the rest over clear tips.

These do not have acrylic, but they were quite lovely! Unfortunately, they lasted less than two weeks!! :( Maybe that's why I forgot about them?

Weightloss and Self Confidence

Hello lovelies! You may have known (or not) that I am still continuing a healthy lifestyle with more exercise and balanced nutrition. The progress is slow, but quick weight loss has never been permanent for me, especially with fad diets that promise quick results. This time I am trying to make a permanent and manageable change that will get me healthy and keep me healthy.

Exercise has always been such a drag for me. So, I have been going to belly dance classes with my good friends Amanda and Tara, which is taught by another good friend Tiffany. Its so much fun and a great way to exercise and gain self confidence!

The other night we went to a drum jam at Solea in Houston put on by Belly Dance Theatre Houston.

We had so much fun dancing and hanging out! I know the group shot is terrible - but that really was the least blurry one. Hahaha... I think I look kinda scary! ^-^

Lots of Love,

Shoppaholic Rehab

I was going through some of my old clothes to get rid of and made some outfit combinations I hadn't really thought up yet. I know this is kind of boring, but I feel proud of myself for this! I have a bad habit of looking at my closet and saying "I've got nothing to wear." Well... I have lots of stuff to wear, I guess I am just lazy a lot of times or bored with my current clothes.

Then I want to go shopping and buy more stuff that just sits in my closet after only a few times of wearing. Terrible habit I am breaking! I am trying to be more creative and think positive about what I have and what I can do with it. Here are a couple of things I came up with:

I need to do this more and maybe write it down or take pics, then choose from those ideas later!!

Lots of Love,

Yukata - Ready for JapanFest!!

I am very excited about JapanFest in Houston this weekend!! I just got my Yukata in the mail and have all my accessories ready to go. Last year I was unable to go, and the year before I did not wear my Kimono, as it is a vintage silk one and very heavy.

Japan Festival info can be found here: http://japan-fest.info/
It will be will be April 13th and 14th this year.

Here is a sneak peek of what I will be wearing!

I am really anticipating this year's festival!

NEW Lip Piercing?!

Over the weekend I got my lip pierced! I went to a place called "You Pick We Stick It" on a Thursday actually. My friend Amanda went with me and got the tragus on her right ear pierced. We were very lucky that day! It was there 9th anniversary of being open and the first 9 customers got their service for free - so we didn't have to pay anything for our piercings, just a tip for the artist of course. :)

Here is a picture from the day after I had it done. I was at a friends house and we had been watching movies, when I remembered that I wanted to get a picture for my blog. Hahaha I think I look kind of funny but in a good derpy way?!

What do you think of the new accessory?

Lots of Love,

Purple Nails

Here is another set of acrylics I did myself. I tried to do Hime style nails, haha but I think I went over board with the glitter!

What do you think?

I've been busy with school lately! We just finished up midterms, and I did very well. I made a few A's and one B, so I am very pleased with these scores. :D

Also, I've been learning a lot from my nutrition class. For a year I've been striving to eat healthier. During this class we track our food habits, and I've learned to adjust my diet to exactly what I need. Its very hard to make the right choices when so much bad stuff is everywhere, but I'm doing very well! Surprisingly, I was lacking dairy... I guess that was something easily overlooked.

In a couple of weeks my biology class is taking a field trip to a nature preserve to do some restoration work. I'm really excited to do something outside of the classroom! I will take some pictures and share with you in a later post. :)

Lots of Love,
