MY 1st Julep Box

Look what I got!!! My very FIRST BOHO Glam Julep box!!!!
I haven't used anythng yet i literally opened my door and saw it laying on the floor!! I've looked into a bunch of subscription sites, the majority of them range from $9.99-$39.99/monthly and besides the very few that are $40+ after tax and shipping theyre all samples! Dont get me wrong im not greedy I dont want a huge box filled with full size product in it but not the samples i can go to Sephora and Macy's and get for free?! I know you can contact companies and purchase their "Sample Size" that is more then 1 use but less then the full size product at a special rate kinda like wholesale... what EVVVs
so ive been hearing alot about Julep and ive heard a few bad things but not enough to sway me away and when I saw that the first box was a PENNY you cant beat that! I havent used the products yet but my really good friend has and she loves everything so im sure I will too...

soooo to the point this is what I got in my BOXXX:) 

The perfect neutral, sophistocated creamy grey
The CUTEST sunny butter creamy yellow
Julep Facial for Hands
Glycolic hand scrub with apricot seedsto provide double exfoliation. Naturally scented with orange oil for and aromatherapy boost 
....And a Nail file

Day of Silence Nails Shhh...

Today marks the 17th annual Day Of  Silence... for those of you who don't know I am part of the LGBT community if I had to give myself a label -I am a Lesbian :)! I have been actively apart of this community for 8 years now. I am in a committed relationship with a FTM Transgender while we cannot legally get married in the state of Florida we can have a Domestic Partnership. We are content with that however we are hoping and working towards legalizing Gay Marriage!

This is a cause near and dear to my heart. Its not only a problem in youth, but society as a whole. If you ask all of my friends I am the most outspoken and strong hearted women they know, but truth be told I was a victim like many in school and at home. Due to the harassment and bullying it tainted my views about myself and others leading me down a horrible spiral into drugs, alcohol and an eating disorder, later resulted in dropping out of school all together. Through my winding path I've come across an amazing group of friends that have helped me through those hard times. I am now 5 years clean and sober and finally getting a grip on eating :) 

The National Day of Silence is a day of action in which students across the country vow to take a form of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools. Founded in 1996, the Day of Silence has become the largest single student-led action towards creating safer schools for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. From the first-ever Day of Silence at the University of Virginia in 1996, to the organizing efforts in over 8,000 middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities across the country in 2008, its textured history reflects its diversity in both numbers and reach. Over the years people have confused the meaning and mission that the Day Of Silence was put into action for to read the TRUTH ABOUT THE Day  Of Silence visit

My CLOSE and DEAREST friend Heidi ( came up with the idea to do a manicure in support of the Day of Silence. I am currently not a student and so to take a Day of Silence as an adult, this is our way of showing support. There are no set in stone colors but there are other organizations that deal with hate and bullying and LGBT suicide which are commonly-- Red, Black, White and Purple.

I hope you enjoy my take on this day and if you or someone you know has questions about the LGBT community or my life please feel free to email me (Contact info)

Hot Pink Cupcake Nails

this week i have a bunch of friends and family that are having birthdays so i decided to do a little nail art in homage to them :). i absolutely ADORE my little cupcakes. The hot pink is one of the polishes i bought last week on my Polish Haulage post{you can click the link to read that post] and i ABSOLUTELY LOVVVVEEE IT! when i swatched it it wasn't the same as it is on my nails i liked the swatch but it just seems soooo much brighter on my nails then on my swatch and for $1.99 you cant beat that! this polish is not like most neons that are sheer and usually have a little shimmer in them and turn matte when they dry. this one has NO shimmer and is SUUUPPEERRRR creamy which is hard to find. Have any of you tried Chelly before and if so do you like it as much as i do? Whats your favorite brand for neons?

Please dont forget follow my blog i always follow back & pass it along to friends. i love to hear from you guys and when i get to enough followers im going to start doing giveaways and other fun stuff :) if you havent seen yet im doing a "Nail Challenge Collab" with Heidi @ in the month of May {Summer Nail Challenge Link] so check it out!!! i cant wait to see what you guys are gonna come up with!
Polish used:
{Hot Pink]
Chelly- #72
{Base For my cupcake]
Orly- Bare Rose

Polish Haulage :)

This is kinda sick but  i don't work and have tons of time to do what i please with my days... so with that said i went shopping at a few different Walgreens', the beauty supply store and a few other stores and bought a boat load of stuff to dye my hair because i do believe that second to nail polish i ADORE hair dye... lol i've literally dyed my hair EVERY color in the rainbow this month i went back to a color i said i was never gonna ever do again because the upkeep on it is INSANE its worse then Pink and that fades superrrrr fast...  
(if you want to know how and what i used just contact me)

other then the hair dye i bought about 22 or so new bottles(i forgot to take a picture and swatch like half of them) 9 of them i paid a whopping 65 CENTS for and accidentally bought 2 of a few of the bottles so i was originally going to just GIVE them to my really good friend Heidi@ but shes stubborn like a MULE (shes probably reading this and cursing me i LOVE you) so i ending up swapping my 4 with her 1(Zoya- Lolly) 

Below are the pictures of the 14 that i did take a picture of i actually swatched all 14 of them but it was virtually impossible to see the Electro Candy's and the iridescent pearl they have so i'm just posting the other 7... 

Enjoy and Stay tuned i'm going to have some fun stuff coming soon :)

Sunny Spring Nails

OK so I'm gonna vent to you guys for a second because its really annoying how rude intentional or unintentional people are!! with that said let the venting begin!!!... Its so funny how many times a day people grab my hands and say "I LOVE your nails" and I'm always asked "owwww who does your nails?" and BY NO MEANS does that bother me i love and accept compliments with genuine appreciation BUTTTTTTTTTTT when I say me I get these crazy weird cross eyed looks like I'm a liar just twits my tweeker!! I usually just say"haha I'm glad you like them" and walk away or hand them a business card because I'm not a big bragger about my accomplishments. i never just jump up and say [in my crazy Puerto Rican voice}"DUHHH I did my nails!!!! I've been doing nails for 8 years, I didn't start yesterday!" even though if you know me it wouldn't surprise you if i said it. I've had extensive training and I've won a bunch of awards for my nail art and gel sculpting! I just don't see the point I LOATHE backhanded compliments and that's exactly what that it .

 But any whozums I've been stuck in my house for about a week or so (i dislocated my hip) and i haven't been able to go outside and see the sun so the nail art was inspired by Sunny Florida and summery spring weather
 Left Hand
Right Hand

The polishes used: 
[Pinky red orange}
Wet-n-Wild(MEGAlast) : Heatwave
Wet-n-Wild(Wild Shine): Sunny side up
[Clearish Pink}
Orly: Bare rose*

*I franken my clearish pinks by using a few drops of a brighter red nail polish to make the pink hue a lot pinkier without having to layer on coasts and coasts of it... Its just a personal preference but i LOVE the look of a pink nail bed with a colored/white french instead of a creamy or nothing at all. I'll post 3 pictures below of what I'm talking about, but none of which are my work 
Top to Bottom:
1}. American French
2}. Creamy French
3}. Classic French
