Check Out My New Ink (3 New Tattoos)

butterfly

Hey Guys! So if you didn't know already I love tattoos, I have about 7 of them now. But let me give you a little background on some of them first. My first ever tattoo is of this little guy   I was 16 when I got this butterfly tattoo on my back (shoulder blade) it used to be cute and full of color, but over the years the color faded and it just turned into something that I didn't like anymore. I had planned on covering it up for years but for no reason in particular I just never got around to doing it. So last weekend I found a new tattoo artist and went had this covered up along with some other work done. Here is what now covers that little sad butterfly   This pretty little black and grey hummingbird :) I love it! it's so pretty; I loved it so much I got it twice!   I had another hummingbird added to my other shoulder blade. The two birds represent my two little kiddos I have. I choose the hummingbird because they are not only pretty birds but they … [Read more...]

Minted: Wall Art Prints & So Much More

The Rapids

**Disclaimer: I was given a store credit to minted.com in exchange for my honest review. As always all thoughts and opinions remain my own.**   Hey Guys! As you know I recently redecorated Jordyn's room and lately that has given me a few ideas about some other changes I'd like to do around the house. Particularly my master bedroom. It's kinda drab at the moment, nothing exciting or relaxing is going on with the theme in there. So when I was contacted by Minted to do a review and saw that they had a HUGE selection of Wall Art Prints excitement took over. I browsed and browsed their selection trying to pick out the perfect piece for my bedroom. Here are a few of the pieces that caught my eye or this one and then there's this one...   There are so many options and that makes it so hard to choose! Their collection of wall art prints are created by independent artists and are printed on archival paper. There are various sizes to choose from … [Read more...]

Flat Twisted Side Curls on Natural Hair

back view twisted curls

Hey Guys, I'm back with a new hair style I came up with for Jordyn. I started by washing her hair with Herbal Essence Naked Volume Shampoo then I conditioned with Aussie Moist conditioner. Next I sectioned her hair in 4 sections and I added a quarter sized amount of Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream  and grapeseed oil to each section. I detangled with my wide tooth comb and then used my blow dry to dry her hair completely. Next I added a tiny bit of gel for hold and began flat twisting all of her hair to one side of her head. I secured each flat twist with rubber bands. For the loose hair left out I used my curling wand to add curls. That night I used flexi rods to preserve the curls for the next day and she slept with her satin scarf on. This style will last us an entire week by tying it up at night and using the flexi rods to keep the curls in. There are many variations on this style, you can do it on wet hair, dry hair, … [Read more...]

DIY: Crochet Hook Holder

better lighting :)

Hey Guys! I was in desperate need of a new hook holder for my crochet hooks. So I went about scouring the net to find some patterns. I found this beauty over at Craft Town.      Sooo....I am not that great at reading patterns, I get confused and lost. This pattern was no exception. I started fine but then I couldn't understand what the pattern was telling me to do next. So I did my own thing. I will list my pattern that I came up with but I'll warn you, it's tedious and probably the long way of completing it but it worked for me! Here is what I did: ch 41 Row 1: 40 sc, turn Row 2-35: ch 1, 40 sc, turn It should look like a big square Next, I changed colors and after I attached my cc to the middle of the square on the left side (I eyeballed the middle) 4 sc, ch 1, turn repeat this pattern until the strip is the length of the square, it will look like this Next, you just flip the strip over the square like … [Read more...]
