Glitter Lambs Loose Glitter Nail Art

Hey everyone,

I absolutely love painting my nails and making swatches for colors and glitter. Here are some fun swatches I created for Glitter Lambs recently. Enjoy!
















I really love how you can accent loose glitter however you want on any length nail. You can do a chunky effect on every nail or accent a few nails however you please. It allows for much more control in the overall style and feel of your nail look. Plus, you can pick out whatever glitter shapes you want and arrange them as you please. Thank you Glitter Lambs for working with me! It was such fun. :) Enjoy everyone.

Cheers,

Huntington Library Gardens

Hi everyone,

I had the pleasure of exploring Huntington Library with my friend and we had so much fun! It is definitely an all day adventure and it was also very hot, but so beautiful. I just love plants. Plants are so special. The colors and the textures.. the patterns they create are so unreal. Some are so symmetrical and others just look so strange and out of this world. I can spend all day looking at different plants (well I did here actually).

Huntington Library was really cool. They have a wide array of gardens from Chinese, Japanese, and Desert themed ones. They also had many many libraries/museums/exhibits as well. Here are some lovely pictures I took. We spent the most time in the desert; I really adore succulents.
















I started to recently think about how many places I have yet to visit locally, whether it's in the city that I live in right now or even the state. Then I thought about how we all talk about wanting to travel abroad, leave your country to explore somewhere else. Yet, there is so much I have yet to explore locally and even nationally in the U.S. I hope to explore as much as I can while I'm here in California for one last summer. :) Whether it's down the street or across an ocean, it's still an adventure.

San Gabriel Mountains Hike

Hi everyone,

My friend and I recently ventured on a 10 mile hike, got lost, got burnt, but still had a good time. We sadly took the wrong turn on San Merill trail when we were hoping to go see Inspiration Point (another adventure another time!). I still got some lovely photos and fresh air in!








This was a great a hike even though we went on the wrong trail and didn't make it to our destination. It speaks volumes about how the journey is more important than the finish line in so many ways. It was also a good lesson on packing sunblock and more water for longer hikes in brutal humid heat too. 

It was nice to see all the lovely colors of the wildflowers blooming along the pathway and say hello to some butterflies along the way. Next month, we plan on returning and hopefully making our way up successfully. On a happy note, we had some amazing sandwiches after the long hike. This sign was happily standing outside the cafe's shop. Thought it was worth sharing. :)


Until next time.
