But today, “The Bible” finally arrived! I posted this little quadra-pic on Instagram earlier of me and “my precious”!

I’m so looking forward to NYC’s Fashion Week!! Gotta love the September Issue!!

Duck Tape Prom

I’m home sick today. Not cool. As you may have read, I just switched jobs, so my paycheck from my last job was pretty skimpy and since I’m new to payroll at the hotel, obviously, my first paycheck was for only a couple of days. So loosing money isn’t exactly ideal right now. Never the less, I’ve kept myself entertained but google searching and other mindless web surfing. One of the articles I read provided some seriously adorable and awesome fashion pics.

Every year, Duck Tape brand holds a scholarship contest in which participants make their prom attire using Duck Tape. I remember my senior year one of my guy friends swore he was going to participate. He never did, unfortunately, but that’s when I first became aware of this Duck Tape phenomenon. So I was kind of excited when I saw this article on Lucky Magazine’s site, (here’s the link to check out the original article:) Lucky Magazine Duck Tape Dresses. These couples are incredible and their Duck Tape creations are pretty impressive.

I’m so inspired after seeing these pictures that I want to make a Duck Tape gown using the Zebra print or Leopard print Duck Tape!!! Maybe I’ll just start with a skirt.

This just might be my favorite out of all of these.

This one reminds me of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I LOVE the polkadots!!!!

I love her umbrella and backless gown. The star theme is adorable!

Love this one!

Their spalttered paint theme is awesome! Love her paint can handbag!

These two are completely adorable!

I'm assuming their prom was a masquerade theme.

That detailing is incredible!! and I absolutely love the colors.

Not my favorite, but the color combo is awesome and I love the stars at the bottom!

This one kind of reminds me of Marte Gras... or a peacock. I'm not sure why the cape is so stiff but the swirls are amazing!

Pretty much my least favorite out of these 11, but the detailing on these are pretty rad. and her handbag is adorable!

"Nail It!"

Inspired by Lucky Magazine’s July Issue’s article “Nail It!”, I gave myself a funky mani/pedi today.

This spiraled marble look is what I was originally going for on my hands. However, to really do this you would need specialty brushes.

Soooooo…. I modified the directions a bit. and went with a different color scheme.

First I applied a full coat of my chosen base color. I chose Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear #450 Caribbean Coral. Once dry, I applied blobs of Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear #480 The Real Teal and White in no particular pattern on the nail. Before drying, I used an old bottle of clear coat to blend and swirl the blue and white. I repeated this with each nail. (Hence why I used an old clear coat that was running out instead of a perfectly good bottle.)

Anyway, here’s how it looks:

I’ve also noticed a lot of celebs rocking this look. Also featured in Lucky’s article, I decided to try it out on my toes. In spite of hating my feet and “alien toes” I’ve taken a pic just for you guys… I know, I’m a generous blogger.
