Finally, the Cricut box has made it out of the house which means yes a bag review of course. After doing some research I realize that the Cricut branded storage option wasn’t the optimal one for me. Although the brand’s bag is heavily padded and appears to be of good quality there were two things that had me searching for alternative brands.
The last couple of weeks I have been allowing my stress to consume me. While I should have pumped the brakes sooner, I am now integrating two strategies into my daily routine. Instead of fixating on multiple stressors for hours at a time this new way of thinking implements a set block of time. Thus, pulling the negative toxic energy away from the task.
Christmas is right around the corner! It is time to wrap all those gifts stashed in the closet. If you have not finished your shopping already, get to it. ha. Every year I try to be a little more artsy with my wrapping. Normally I end up drawing on a couple of brown paper packages which is why this year I wanted to change it up.
Searching for the perfect pumpkin is the first step. Last week when I roamed the rows of a pumpkin patch farm searching well, mostly low for the right shape and colored pumpkin, I thought painting real pumpkins would be cake. Alright so this pumpkin is a bit slick nothing a couple of coats of paint cannot handle… wrong. This pumpkin experience was a nightmare.
A few months ago I purchased these nail polish strips from a festival vendor. Since the designs were so unique I waited until my birthday to try them out. While I have tried nail strips or as I call them nail stickers before these ones are advertised as being 100% REAL nail polish, so I was curious as to if Color Street nails were overall higher quality than competing brands.
As an artist, sketching, doodling and so on are a huge part of my creative expression outlet. Since tablets came into existence, I have always been a more paper and #2 pencil kind of person. The first tablet I tried was a Samsung that came with a stylist specifically for drawing, I fell in love. However, after a couple years it starts to lag due to upgrades past it’s capabilities. Long story short, I decided to try the iPad for the first time when they came out with the Apple Pencil, specifically for university and sketching.
Mermaids have surfaced in popularity, however, I have always been a fan of the shimmer, shine, and beauty in the waves. Once Tarte’s mermaid collection went live I knew I wanted to try out some of the products. After waiting for the package to arrive, I was shocked by how much I loved both products, eyelash curler with mascara and the eyeshadow palette.
Before each semester starts, I nerd out on school supplies to see if anything is “needed”. One of my favorite times of the year is honestly back to school shopping. The spring semester for college is not as exciting as there are no hyped up deals or ads. However, I do still enjoy going through all my supplies and organize what I may need based on each course.
