Musette Monday: Jaclyn Smith

7.22.2014

For hot summer nights there is no better muse than Jaclyn Smith.  To die for hair and easy style with a twist of class.  The 70′s were so damn good.

NYFW: Back Stage Cynthia Rowley x Dermelect

3.15.2014

Backstage during Fashion Week I couldn’t help but be obsessed by these rainbow fun nails created by Celebrity Manicurist Elle for Dermelect ‘ME’ at the Cynthia Rowley Fall Presentation. Elle explains Cynthia’s key word for describing her inspiration of the collection was ‘moonbows’, a reflection on the romanticism of her sporty chic line for the Fall 2014 season. Elle took Cynthia’s vision and created her version of the moonbow. Representing a rainbow of darker shades not using any primary colors.  For the look Elle layered two shades from the same color family on one nail, beginning with a dark red to orange, yellow, green, indigo and purple to achieve the perfect ‘moonbow’.

DIY: GLITTER DIPPED PAPER GEM GARLAND

12.15.2013

GlitterDippedPaperGemGarland9

Glitter dipped paper gems, perfect for the Holiday season but cool enough to keep around all year!

supply list:

~Cardstock ( I used white, but any color of your preference)

~Scissors

~Glitter

~Glue (Elmers works fine or Modge Podge)

~paint brush for the glue

~Needle and strong beading thread or string of your choice

~Paper or paperplates, to keep the glitter mess not all over the place

1. Print the gem diamond shape template here on white card stock, as many as you have the time to do.  Even if you only do a few, will add a great little festive touch!

2. Cut them out and then begin to glue the tabs, one by one allowing them to dry.

3. Once they are fully dried, dip the paint brush into glue and paint one by one the tops of the paper gems. I used uneven brush stokes to give it that artsy touch.

4. Over a paper plate pour the glue immediately before it has a chance to dry.

5. Once they are all dry glue them to string as far as part as you like.  On this one I used a clear strong beading thread.  I threaded through at the very tops and added a touch of glue to seal it in place.

6. And then ta-da! Hang above the mantle, over a large frame, on the wall or around the tree!
