i pretty much love everything this woman does.

Her name is Elsa Mora and she is a multi-media artist from LA. She has a few different blogs, but I think her personal style blog might be my favorite.

Thursdays nails

I wanted to try something a little different with color so I painted with two and only stamped with one.(I've been doing it the other way around so far). Not really crazy about them, but I have a super cute skirt that matches perfectly that I'm wearing tomorrow. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lightning, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Wet Cement, Black Konad Stamping polish, and image plate BM11.


shoes with bows <3

Adorable little canvas maryjanes from Forever 21! They have them in a cute floral print too ;)

I am loving these right now! They are super comfy and they look so cute on. I might have to get a back-up pair....

just beautiful

So this doesn't necessarily fall into the "cute" category, but I just love it. While at St. Joe's hospital the other night, I was wandering around when I came across this on the wall outside the chapel. I used the Retrocamera app on my phone, but even without the cool filter it was gorgeous....

nail obsessed

My newest obsession is nail art. I started out by hand painting designs on my nails then found a whole WORLD of incredible nail art. My first hand painted attempt was these little bows -

very time consuming but they turned out really cute.

After doing a little research, I found a great site called I tried the newspaper nail art tutorial, found here, and read about image plates from a company called Konad. I ordered plates, stamps, nail polish, and I've had different nails every day since. Here are a couple I've tried so far:
This is Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Mint Sorbet with image plate BM20 (from Bundle Monster) done with white Konad polish.
I used the black Konad stamping polish as a base coat (only one coat needed!), Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint, and image plate BM06. I reversed the design on my toes, and when I took it off tonight it had stained my nails green : /  Other than the staining with this particular color I have been really happy with this line.
