Manicure Monday: “What A Broad” Of A “Bridesmaid”

Happy Monday all! Hope you all had a great Monday and in turn have a fantastic week.

It’s Monday so y’all already know what this is about. Crippled or not, must get the beauty on. Haha. Not really, my aunt offered to do my nails yesterday since my right arm is basically useless right now. Keeping it Fall themed  again; love sporting the dark shades. I also needed some bedazzle in my life. It’s fun to look at from time to time so I added glitter chunks as accents.

Manicure Monday: "What A Broad" Of A "Bridesmaid"

Sephora by OPI Nail Color in What A Broad
Milani Nail Lacquer in Bridesmaid
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Twinkle Toes-ty

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Diamond Shine Base & Top Coat

Both What A Broad and Bridesmaid took me one thick coat each to achieve this flawlessness. I applied two coats of Twinkle Toes-ty on top of Bridesmaid to give my accent nails more bling.

I applied the top coat to each and every nail to protect the color from fading and chipping. And that is it.

Thank you for visiting and thanks for reading guys. Please come back soon. :)

Sunday Mask: DIY Papaya Mask

papaya yogurt honey

Hi guys! Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend. Hope you’re all staying safe.

I was unfortunately involved in a car accident yesterday. I was able to walk away with minor injuries, everyone in the car was able to actually. The minor injuries I received were a torn blood vessel in my right eye, pulled a muscle in my neck from whiplash, cracked collarbone and dislocated shoulder, all to my right side because the accident occurred on the passenger side where I was sitting. Nothing too serious really but I was prescribed pain killers and told to “take it easy” for the next week or two. I didn’t think pain killers were necessary so i haven’t been taking them. That might be a mistake…

But anyways, spent a good chunk of yesterday at the hospital. Spending time in the hospital did my skin no good at all. It’s no dried yet oily and I can feel pimples sprouting. I need a nourishing mask to pamper my skin with.

Super easy recipe today because I happened to have all three ingredients in my fridge today. My Mommy helped me out today because ya know.. can’t lift my right arm at all.

Get your mask on guys! :P


What You’ll Need:
– 3 tablespoons papaya puree
– 1 tablespoon (plain) yogurt
– 1 teaspoon honey

What To Do:
– Use eye measurements to cut out a chunk of papaya that you think will be about 3 tablespoons when blended
– Mash using a spoon or blend with a blender to make a smooth paste
– In a clean bowl, add 3 tablespoons of pureed papaya and 1 tablespoon of yogurt; mix thoroughly
– Add the teaspoon of honey and stir until the honey is mixed out

How To Use It:
– Apply the mask to a clean face
*This mask is very watery and will run down your face and drip everywhere, I recommend you lay down and keep still
– Leave it on for about 20 minutes
– Rinse off with cool water and pat to dry

I’m off to go settle myself in. The slightest movement sends shooting sharp pains down my spine. Tomorrow’s manicure might be an issue guys.. :S

Thank you for visiting and thanks for reading! Enjoy your Sunday!! Please come back soon. :)

Skincare Saturday: Almond Scrub & Lip Scrub

Hello, hello Saturday everyone!! Hope y’all are enjoying your weekend! :)

I’m leaving y’all with my two super trusted scrub recipes I’ve used for years and years. One is an almond scrub for the face while the other is a lip scrub. Go ahead and check them out down below. If you give any of the recipes a go, please do let me know your experience with ‘em. :P

almond scrub


You will need:
– 1 teaspoon of Almond Powder
– 1 teaspoon of Honey
– Water (optional)

What to do:
– Mix 1 teaspoon of Almond Powder and Honey to form a paste  in a small bowl

* You can apply the paste just like that or you can add a tad water to make it more liquidy.

How to use it:
– I recommend using a brush to apply the paste onto the face
– Leave on for about 5 to 10 minutes
– Use your fingers to massage your face, the grains act as an exfoliation
– Rinse with warm water and finish with a splash of cool water
– Pat to dry

lip scrub


What you’ll need:
– 2 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar
– 1/2 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
– 1/2 Tablespoon of Honey

What to do:
– Mix everything together thoroughly.
– Place the scrub in a covered container.
– Refrigerate for about an hour.

How to use it:
– Mix the scrub again with a spoon to make sure everything is blended.
– With the spoon or your fingers, pick up as much scrub as you feel adequate.
– Gently massage the scrub onto your lips, in a back and forth, up and down motion for about 30 seconds.
(You can also use a soft-bristle toothbrush too.)
– Rinse with warm water.
– Gently wipe clean.
– Apply your favorite lip balm for hydration.

I use this scrub diligently during the cooler seasons like Fall and Winter. I do use it from time to time during the Summer and Spring, but not my lips doesn’t need that much of a boost in warmer seasons. Fall/Winter trends call for dark, vampy lips. From wearing such lip colors constantly can and will stain your lips and make them appear more pigmented than they should. Using this scrub weekly will lift away those stains, keeping your pouters pretty and pink.

And I’m off to get things done. Super hectic at my house today. Hope y’all enjoyed this post.

As always, I really appreciate each and everyone of my visitors. Thanks a bunches for reading. Come back soon! :)
