Last night I came across this do it yourself Easter wreath made from – yup, Easter eggs! Like the many other times before, I thought, ‘heck, I can do that!’ And well, I did, but I’ll let you be the judge of my final creation!

Here’s a quick list of the items you’ll need to dress up your door for Easter.

°  Plenty of Easter eggs – (last years are just fine)

°  Wire Wreath Frame – found this one at the dollar store, the Foam Floral Ring would have worked best though, but they didn’t have it

°  Hot Glue Gun with enough glue sticks and finally …

°  Lots of patience!

So, let me not get you too excited about this project, although the final product will leave you feeling extra special inside, so yes, get excited friend!

Nail File Friday’s: Affordable Lighting For Filming On YouTube

If you’re new to my blog, I want to share with you that I’m also on YouTube, making easy to do nail art tutorials. A quick disclaimer, I’m not a professional, I simply started to film my hobby. I’ve been filming for about a year, so I’m still learning the in’s and out’s. However, whether you’ve already got your very own YouTube channel or not, been thinking about starting one, one things for sure, you need the right  equipment. And if you were like me – are,you don’t know what to get, where to start and are short on change or on a budget, I want to share with you what I bought to start filming on my YouTube channel.

These are two affordable, inexpensive lighting options for making YouTube videos, from nail tutorials to makeup tutorials to crafting, drawing, etc. they’re great for placing on a table or desk and filming – use one lighting or both at a time.

First Option: B-Land 5.7″ Ring Light with Mini Tripod, iPad Holder, Universal Phone Holder, Wireless Remote Shutter – take pictures from a distance of up to 30 feet, USB Powered, LED Light, 3 Light Color Modes – White, Warm Yellow, and Warm Yellow and White, 11 Adjustable Brightness, Flexible Tripod, Great for Filming on YouTube, Vlogging, Steady Tripod Pictures, Great to Place on Top of a Table or Desk to Film

Second Option: QIAYA Selfie Light Ring Lights LED Circle Light, Clip on to Cell Phone – or Laptop and Camera, rechargeable USB Charging Cable, 3 Level Brightness Adjustable

Tip: If I film during the day, I can get really good natural light and do not need the ‘QIAYA Selfie Light Ring’ as the ‘Ring Light with Mini Tripod’ gives me enough light. However, if I’m filming at night, I will use both lighting options at the same time, ‘the more light, the merrier!’

Reblog Wednesday: A Six-Word Story — HappymessHappiness

There have been times when I’ve felt unworthy, unworthy of love – of being loved, unworthy of blessings, of happiness, simply unworthy. And then things happen, time passes and I realize that I too deserve happiness, I too deserve blessings on blessings. I remember that there is no perfect being walking on this earth and that I try. I try my best as a mother, wife, sister and daughter, and that I strive. I strive to be better and do better than I did yesterday. As this lovely post by Happymess Happiness so perfectly in just but a few words put it – ‘Even broken things can be loved.’ Indeed.

Nail File Friday’s: Easy + Simple Light Pink With Glitter Detail

So, after all the dark and neon colors I’ve been trying out over on my YouTube, this week I wanted to share with you something neutral and pretty but still toned down. I went with this neutral, and very beautiful light pink/nude tone nail polish by Essie – Go Go Geisha. It’s that perfect neutral shade that you can wear to work, a wedding, school, etc. when you want a color that isn’t loud.
