BeautyBeauty Trend: Word Nails

 
If you are bored with your traditional solid-colored nails, then try this trend on for size! These “word nails” are like decopauge for your nails and they are amazingly cute. The best part is you can choose any newspaper wording you want, from the text of the business section to comic strips. This is a great way to re-define the tradtional newspaper: by placing it on your nails!
 

What you will need:

*Scissors
*Newspaper
*Light Colored Polish
*Base Coat 
*Top Coat
*Rubbing Alcohol or Vodka
*Small Ceramic Dish

1. Find a section in a newspaper that you want to copy onto your nails and cut it out. I say newspapers because their ink is easily transferrable onto a painted surface. Make sure you cut the pieces to cover each of your nails. I would like to suggest using the crossword puzzle, advertisements, or comic strips for some awesome shapes.

2. Varnish your nails by applying a base coat followed by two coats of a nail color of your choice. I suggest using a lighter color, such as pastels, so that your print is visible.

3. Pour rubbing alcohol, or vodka, into a small dish. Once your nails are dry, briefly soak them in alcohol. I suggest vodka as an alternative because this liquid tends to not be as harsh on your polish. 

4. Cover your nails with the ten small pieces of paper you cut out earlier. Press down firmly and hold it still for about thirty seconds. Remove the small pieces of paper slowly, so that all of the print is transferred onto your nail. 

5. Let your nails dry and apply a top coat to finish them off. I would like to suggest a clear polish with sparkles, just to add a little shimmer into the mix!

CelebrityRetro Fox: Tuesday Weld

 
 
 
Born Susan Ker Weld in 1943, Tuesday Weld was one of the most unique screen sirens of her day. Modeling from a young age, Tuesday then moved on to act in such films as Once Upon a Time in America, Play It As It Lays, Thief, and Looking for Mr. Goodbar, with costars like Steve McQueen, Michael Douglas, and Robert De Niro.
 
Not only was she talented, but she was also incredibly gorgeous. Classic blonde curls, killer cheekbones, an engaging gap tooth, and a fantastic wardrobe combined to make one stunning little lady. Check her out!
 
 
 
So mod! I love both of these outfits, from the floral print dress to the cute clutch to the simple white dress with skinny belt. Both these looks are totally back in style now!
 
 
Stripes and cut-offs! I want to know how she makes it look so easy…le sigh…
 
 
Hat? Check. Print pants? Check!
 
 
Orange tones are definitely this season’s color. With a soft updo on the left and sultry glamor on the right, Tuesday is everything elegant and gorgeous.

Hey girls! I’m Kaelah from Little Chief Honey Bee and I am back for Round 2 of fighting fashion do’s and don’ts! So we’re talking fashion faux-pas here, right? What can we say about this outfit? Don’t mix black and brown? Don’t match your belt with your shoes? Or how about don’t try to make the tired ol’ military look work by wearing straight up cam colors?

I don’t like camouflage. I never got into the dirty olive hue and I never tried making the “Army” style of military fashion work for me. Give me some navy, white, and gold, we’ll say we’re channeling the Navy! That’s my kind of military style! We all know nautical inspired outfits work. They have this seemingly effortless ability to just look awesome and we think nothing of it. Instead I decided to push myself out of my comfort zone a little and finally go for a military based look, all with the hope of not looking too “try hard.” To me the biggest faux pas with military looks is that they’re just boring!

 1) Bring in the girly accents when and where possible! I opted for a mesh top on this dress which offers up a sweetheart neckline and a peter-pan styled collar. The pleats on the dress also give it that “twirly” effect. The dress is a bit more olive than it may appear in the photos but it’s definitely a masculine color. By choosing to balance it out with the dress’ feminine accents, we’re able to balance it.
2) Go with a different hue for everything else. Black and brown are neutral colors, that’s for sure. But when you pair them up against this dress then they start looking more theatrical.
3) Make a statement somewhere in your outfit! To me, military looks based on this color combination just have the tendency to fall flat. They look boring or too overdramatic. There never seems to be a middle ground. When you go for something crazy like woven platform shoes with a 5.5″ heel and a big woven belt, the outfit starts to come alive.
4) Throw in something bright like an ivory! I wouldn’t go white for this since you typically think of military life as one spent “in the trenches” getting dirty, so ivory was the perfect balance. It offers a clean hue as a pop color, all while remaining connected. 
I wouldn’t recommend Jeffrey Campbell Litas as your battle attire, but they’re so comfortable you could easily do a few drills in them! March to the beat of your own drum by taking a tried and true style and bumping it up a few notches!

ArtCinemagraphs: Bringing Photographs to Life

 
“There’s something magical about a still photograph – a captured moment in time – that can simultaneously exist outside the fraction of a second the shutter captures.”
 
 
Known as cinemagraphs, these incredible photographs are a blend of still images and video, bringing to life a single moment captured in time.
 
The first true cinemagraphs were created by New York fashion photographer Jamie Beck, who worked with motion graphics designer Kevin Burg to bring her images to life. She posted them on her tumblr, From Me To You, and since then artists all over the world have been creating cinemagraphs of their own.
 
Check out some in the amazing images below.
