Random Sunday: Nail art Seminar,day at the beach,yoga and dreams that came true

Hello my sweethearts,long time no see :) I feel I haven't blogged in so long I just don't know from where to start. So,let me just say a few words about the Gel,Acrylic and Nail art Seminar I attended. It was a two day  day event with presentation of IBD and Galaxy products and it was great,I am so grateful I had the chance to learn so much. I started practicing nail art on a daily basis,I fell in love with acrylic paints and tried nail art using UV gel.
The seminar made me think of how much I love the beauty industry,how much I enjoy doing hair and nails,and anything beauty related really. I was always good with hair so I finally decided to step it up and make a career change and start doing what I really love.I am currently at my BFF's salon (she is a hairstylist and a nail technician for 15 years) where I am training for a hairstylist (and practicing my nail art).All I can say is that I am so happy and I am loving every minute of it.

Practice,practice ... :)

The roses and flower petals I did on my friend's nails :)

Last weekend I took some time off and went to the beach with hubby and friends.We did a 13 km walk along the beach,had lunch and took a yoga class at sunset.It was a great relaxing day,it was so much fun :)

Paradise <3

For the end of this post I leave you with my latest mani,tropical inspired flowers I am in love <3

That is all for today,hope you all have an amazing Summer <3

Love and kisses:***

Roses for the sunshine :)

Hello my lovelies,hope you are having a great day :) We are in the month of June already,summer is just around the corner,but we had so much rain it felt more like November lately.I am tired of wearing rubber rain boots and always fussing with an umbrella. I want sunshine,and I want it NOW! And what better way to call up the Sun then with some flower manicure?
I am no expert in flower nail art,I admire ladies who do some amazing flower designs and I wanted to try it myself for the longest time. I have been practicing a little and yesterday I came up with the design I am happy with.I liked it so much I did the same nail art on my toes as well :)

My first roses <3 Aren't they cute? I added some polka dots just to mix and match. Like I said,I still need a lot of practice with my roses/flowers but I love how these turned out.All painted with nail polish.
The weather was so gloomy and I am sorry I couldn't take better pics outside #bbloggerproblems

As a base I used baby blue polish by Londesa called Flert polish,for roses I mixed opaque white by Golden Rose Protein (#242) and neon pink by Yes Love (#44),for leaves I used Bellaoggi Sixty seconds green polish (#18).Top coat is Eveline 3in1.

For the weekend I will be attending a 2 day seminar about gel and acrilic nails and nail art and I am so excited too see the new techniques and nail art experts at work :)

 I will try to take pics so you can expect a blog post on that too.

That is all for today,hope you liked it:)

Love and kisses:***

Latest obsession: Bright pink lipstick

Hello my sweethearts,Happy Monday :) Today I want to talk about my latest obsession - bright barbie pink lipstick <3 I was always a nude lippie kinda girl,then around Christmas I fell in love with classic red lipsticks and now Spring time has inspired me to get out of my comfort zone and try something new :)

I was really into trying it out to see how I feel about it,didn't want to spend a lot of money on a lipstick that I may not end up liking and using so I went to the drugstore trying to find some not so expensive lipstick. On the Miss Sporty display this pink beauty caught my eye. I have never tried any make up products from this brand before,but I liked the color so much,the fact that its a cream formula is a plus and the price combo was total win.
Miss Sporty - 009 Innocence - Perfect Color Lipstick line- (I love that they didn't just put a number but also gave the name to the lipstick)

Simple and sleek dark blue classic lipstick packaging,cream formula,well pigmented. The lipstick doesn't dry out my lips but if you already have flakie or lips that are more on the dry side I would recommend to use a lip scrub and a lip balm before applying. The staying power is ok,after all this is not a long lasting or long wear formula lipstick so you will have to reapply during the day.Now the only thing I am not that crazy about is the scent,it has a watermelon scent (or at least it reminds me of watermelon) and its pretty strong,but once you apply it it fades away quickly.

To sum it up,I have really been liking this lipstick and since I got it I wore it almost every day. I feel like I don't need much make up,just my pink lippie some sunglasses and I am ready to go :)

Have you tried this lipstick ? What are your favorite affordable drugstore lipsticks?

Love and kisses:***
