Revisiting the Mountains Soon...

Hi cutiepies!

It's been a few days since I actually looked at my blog and kind of looked over stuff. I successfully completed my Chem class and just needed a break from everything. All I've been doing lately is hanging out with boyfriend and playing pc games. It's been a well-needed great escape! I really need to learn how to relax so that's also something I am working on.

I am actually going on a cabin trip with some friends at the end of next week and thought about revisiting my photos and editing some more of them since I have so many! This is the same same from slightly different angles. Mountains are so serene!

I hope you guys enjoyed these calming photos. I will update you all once I get back from my trip. I've been working hard planning the 1000 follower giveaway party due in early August as well. Yay! 

Happy Mid Summer!

Last Week of Summer School + Updates

Hey guys! I can't believe it but 2 months have already passed and I am finally taking my Chemistry final tomorrow. It's been literally the WORST semester of school in my life but I just kept going and somehow made it here. I wouldn't have been able to get through it without my boyfriend who literally did SO much work/studying with me as I sat there and wanted to cry (or did cry) so... I know you swing by and read my blog: THANK YOU!! <3 

Before I start the bulk of my studying, I have been checking emails and updating my blog.
I finally got on spotify and made some chill music playlists to work to. It makes life so much richer with a soundtrack. :)

I have been working hard preparing a huge 1000 follower celebration giveaway party for early August. I still have new sponsors committing and joining the party so I know that everyone will have a lot of fun discovering new shops and winning prizes! Hopefully, the organization process goes well since we are working with a rather large sponsor group. :D

So here are some updates:

I have a little origami star giveaway going on facebook. It's easy entry here.

I'm also putting my original artwork up for sale through my facebook fanpage. It's too much to integrate into my shop and it's also not a big market compared to my jewelry and origami to post up there individually. I have SO much art and I am preparing to apply for Masters programs in the fall so I'm saving for that. :D

I would greatly appreciate it if you swung by and checked out my work or shared it with some interested friends/family. Here it is!

I mainly work with mixed media. I'm a huge watercolor and thin sharpie fan. Can you tell?

I've been spending a lot of time and physically just purging myself/my room of clutter, old things, etc. I recently picked up painting again and it's so much fun. It's so cathartic and I hope you guys enjoy it too. I am retiring origami in my shop but have a lot of paper/stock left. I'm closing that chapter in my art journey and moving onto other projects I have always wanted to pursue with mixed media. It's kind of scary since no one might purchase my wok but I thought why not give it a try! Here's a speed art video of the two constellation pieces I just made!

Thanks for reading guys! I am considering doing a 30 day vlog challenge for my youtube so I'll see how that goes. It sounds fun but it would be really hard too. EEP!

Let me know how you guys are doing~
Happy almost weekend!

Macaron Nail Art Tutorial

Hey everyone!

I've been recently wanted to paint macarons on my nails and realized how easy and cute they are to paint. I'm sharing how I did and some final pictures. I used really vibrant colors so if it's too much for you, you can always change up the colors. It's definitely a great summer look. :D

Enjoy~ :)

It didn't turn out perfectly and some of my fillings were too thick compared to my cookies or vice versa but it's such a fun look! It's sweet and summery and great for beginners.

Thanks for watching and reading my post guys!
I have my final exam on Thursday and then I am free to enjoy my summer and have some fun. I will be sure to post more on my blog and stuff. :)

Shout out to Glitter Lambs Polish. I love Jamie (the owner and creator) and her line of glitter polish toppers. Support small businesses guys and check her out!

Getting my art on

Hey everyone!

I hope you have all been well!

As some of you know, I've been watercoloring and drawing more lately.
I just wanted to share two speed through art pieces that I recorded recently!

These pieces will be available for purchase, I just haven't figured out pricing or how to take a good photo of either of the two pieces. Thanks for tuning it. :)
