Ugly sweaters

Christmas is only 13 days away, which means it’s time for festivities and most importantly, ugly Christmas sweater parties!!!! In ode the ugly Christmas sweater, Cat and I decided we would share our ugly sweaters with you!

Cat’s funky yet endearing sweatshirt in my opinion is all the sweatshirts should be about. Fuzzy wuzzy with so many embellishments. Great find, Cat!

As for myself, the thrift stores were ransacked of all ugly sweaters so I took matters into my own hands. I went to Target and purchased a basic crew neck t-shirt for $8 and bought felt embellishments at Michael’s Craft store. Added a bit of fabric glue and wallah!

So now that we’ve shared our sweatshirts with you, we would love for you to share your ugly Christmas sweater with us!!!

Meelah would like to wish you all a very happy Halloween and share her bee costume.

In case you missed my previous Meelah post, she is my fur baby and we love her very much.

Here’s the story behind the costume.

The first time I tried to put on the costume she ran away before I was able to fasten the second strap. She ran around with half of it on it looked like she had a black and yellow cape. Kitty-superhero to the rescue! Get it?

On the second try I succeeded and she wore her costume for a few minutes. As you can see we caught her while in the kitchen where she froze in place as if she did not know what to do.  She just stood still and would not move it was actually pretty funny.

After I took off her costume she hid for about 30 minutes or so, I felt bad because that means she was upset.

All is well now and we are thinking of another costumer for her to wear on Thanksgiving… I will share it if we find a cute one.

Well, hope you all have a safe Halloween!

Here in the U.S. we have this interesting “holiday” called Halloween which we celebrate on Oct. 31. Halloween is fun for all ages. When I was little we used to go out Trick-or-treating where we would dress up in our costumes and go around the neighborhood asking for candy from our neighbors. As I got older, especially in college, we dressed up in more “elaborative” costumes and attended Halloween parties where we no longer asked for candy, but perhaps something on the rocks with a splash of something (aka adult beverages).

Moving on, over the next few weeks before Halloween I will be featuring some themed nail tutorials. Here’s the first of them.

I started with a black base color by Milani.

Then I added an orange color to the edge of my nails to make it a Halloween manicure.

Here you have the final look – a Halloween take on your average French Manicure. I think this look is very cute and simple, perfect for the office.

Products used: “Mad About Mango” by Revlon and “Black Magic” by Milani.

Let me know if you decide to recreate this look.

Thanks for visiting, CAT.

Happy 4th of July!!!

As you may know, stars and stripes are what make up the U.S. flag, which also served as the inspiration to this tutorial. Remember to wear your red, white, and blue on this holiday.
