Heels, hopes, standards

Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. Like, you know, my limitless love for shoes 😉 Okay bad example forgive me, but ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ came out a while ago (or a long time ago now? I’ve lost track of time) but I haven’t watched it yet. Still, that phrase sticks…

Now buying shoes online has always been a big “no-no” to me. I can’t bring myself to spend on a size that might not even fit! So, it’s absolute joy when I find a brand that’s got an online store and a physical store: what you do is try the size at the store and then buy it online! I know it seems pointless then since you’ll have to actually leave the house and head to the store, but I use this ‘trick’ most when the shoes are on sale online (shh, I’ll do anything for a bargain!) ^^

Mani Monday: Glitter Half-Moon Nails

Glitter half-moon nails.

I had some time before starting work to explore several creative outlets (apart from cooking and baking) such as crafting and gardening. It has been personally enriching and I decided that every now and then I’d share some of it on the blog.

One of the things that I’ve become really interested in is manicuring! 🙂

Honestly, it costs so much to get it done by a manicurist that sometimes it’s best to learn a bit on your own — especially if, like me, you can get pretty fickle when it comes to what you want on your nails… Like, don’t you girls get bored of your manicure after a week?!

Starting a mini Mani Monday series to chase away those Monday blues. Today’s simple tutorial is: how to do half-moons!

Let’s get started!
