So what am I doing with all these cases? No clue...I do it for fun. I find it relaxing and it makes me happy. I actually have only kept the first case I made on my phone. I never take it off and I love it, though I might trade it out for this one.
I'm actually going to try my hand at making one for a friend next....Let's see how that goes.

I made my first one last night and it was a little difficult to get used to (i smudged quite a few things)..but i think my next one will definitely be better.
I couldn't even tell you what i used as i was just grabbing things for practice. Ill note my next one though.

Lately, this has been taking over my life. I have so many decoden ideas and projects....I've been very excited.
Anyhow. For this one..i tried piping silicone through a cake decorating tip and the stuck some delicious looking cabochons in there. The rest i covered in rhinestones and some pearls. Success!
Will definitely be making some more this week. Its a very relaxing hobby for me.

Well, as everyone may know....Hurricane Sandy has hit some areas pretty hard. I live on Staten Island where a lot of people had to evacuate (though luckily I didn't) and there has been a lot of damage. I was lucky enough to get my power back yesterday night after not having any since Monday, but there are still many others without power and homes and are way worse off because of this storm.
Not just on staten island, but many places were hit badly and if is nothing you can do to help, at the very least...keep those affected in your thoughts.
Even where I'm at it seems so surreal....I feel like I was living in a bubble since I had no contact to the outside world from in my apartment and my area is pretty normal..
But now that I've returned to work, I hear stories about missing people, houses completely destroyed by places that's not more than 2 miles from where I live and used to normally frequent...Some streets are normal while if i drive down others there are trees or posts down and blocking the road....
It definitely puts a lot of things into perspective.
Signing off now!

So...I bought a few things and some clear phone cases and got to work!
On the flip side....I enjoyed myself so much..I'm thinking about getting some silicone and things to make the kind of ones that look like they have whipped cream...and getting sweets/cake themed cabochons...Wouldn't that be cute?
Other than that...Here's a pretty average FOTD for me:
That's all for now! Will be back with some updates after my workshop at Makeup Forever tomorrow with Roshar...(so excited!).

Princess Mimi Bambi Chocolate Browns. Expect a full review on them possibly Monday after I test them out.
I've already had the Sesame Grey and the Apple Green and I loved them..(might even snag another pair of each) so I hope I love these as well.
First off...I'm sorry.
I started this blog with the intent of posting looks, which was originally exciting because I could see when I was improving and things I needed to work on to get better...But since I no longer work at a makeup counter or a place where I can wear what I want on a daily basis, I now wear the same clean looks. Nothing worth posting in my opinion as it really doesn't change much (besides my lip color).
As a result....I've been fading in and out randomly...and I probably won't stop yet.
As much as I neglect it, I love my blog....So recently I've been really trying to find the direction I would like to take it in and find my voice..For some, that's easy...For me, it's been a little more difficult mainly because I've been distracted with other things...
But, I'm trying.
And I'm going to start by trying to take advantage of being able to schedule posts so that maybe when I do fade, it doesn't seem like I've disappeared (the art of a good pump fake).
So, I'll be back. Thanks for being patient and sticking around..
On the flip side..I'm on Instagram (name: Onjel), twitter (@jelz127), and least frequently tumblr (delightfullypretty.tumblr.com) if you're ever curious about what I do in day to day life (mostly eat and kickbox <--trying to get that work out on) so I'm never toooo far.
Once again, I'll see you guys in a few <3 br="br">3>

I FINALLY found it...I've bought every color in this family and wasn't satisfied...and now that I finally have Tart Deco on my nails, its everything I knew I needed in life.
Seriously. I didn't even wait for them to dry to snap a picture and post this. So excuse the excess paint on my nails, I've always sucked at coloring. They need to be cleaned up when they dry...because I WILL NOT risk smudging these.
Yes....for once I am ABSOLUTELY excited.
The perfect peachy color....a peachy pink grapefruit...iunno. its beautiful. Did I mention this is the color of my dreams??
Friday, July 13, 2012
Pre clean-up since I painted them literally right before work.
I'm not sure why its called peach since its more like a coral/pinky kind of color...but I like it lol.
Still looking for Tart Deco though. I just know in my heart that that might be the color of my dreams.

One of my favorite lavenders. I have a bad habit of buying polishes and using them only once or twice, but I think I'm on time #4 with this one.
I did three coats for complete coverage.
Monday, June 25, 2012
But anyway. I did some extra quick swatches of some new lip tars I got in the colors Melange, Memento, and Grandma. This time they're in the new packaging which has a much slimmer opening that the previous one. I really like it a lot more, definitely better for control since you literally only need a pinch to cover your lips completely.

I have a bad habit of doing my nails before I fall asleep...
CVS near me had some nail polishes on sale for 75% off while I was there not too long ago. They had Sally Hansen and even some Essie ones and was able to buy a bunch for about $2 a pop.
This color is Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in Dune.
I like the color, but I hated the brush...made it hard to get the sides of my nails without making a mess because its a little bigger and shaped differently than I'm used to.

It was a really uplifting event and it made me want to do more work to get to where I want to be. I'm also proud of myself for opening up and managing to speak to some new people. Next year I hope to do even better on that end and will be working on it continuously.
Overall, it was a packed event, but I had a great time.
And now, 3 days later....I'm still sleepy. So....bed.

I have soooooooooooooooooo much to talk about....not so many pictures (I'm not sure why I bother carrying a camera sometimes), but I do have some cool shots and things to share. So after today I'll do a post on The Experience NYC and then the Makeup Show.
Much more exciting than having to see a picture of my face and only that....But, just so I don't break with tradition, here's one anyway from last week. It's my inside face, because I only wear neutrals outdoors because of my job:
Before I go, does anybody else find it really awkward to just take pictures of people? I always wonder what people think of getting their picture taking when they're presenting or something. They're probably used to it, but in my head I'm like "I hope they don't think I'm weird or rude...." so I tend not to xD. Sucks a little.

Video isn't really my thing since I lack experience with it....But I'm excited!!
I forgot to mention that I'll also be at The Experience NYC Saturday night with my friend Pascale.
So, if any if anybody is going to the Experience or the Makeup Show (I'll be there both days), please let me know!! I'll make it my mission to hunt you down to meet you!
I'm looking forward to the weekend~!!!

Still alive, still alive....
And keeping it simple as of late changing only my lip color once in a while.
(That purple is MAC All of My Purple Life lipgloss. Kind of liking it a lot lately)
Currently trying to get my skin care game back on point like it was...
I have some updates...things I wrote and never posted. I'll be working on getting those up this week.
I'm thinking I need to do some spring cleaning over here though...
