manic MANI MONDAY: NYE GLITTER NAILS

So I've been into pretty simple nails lately. That is why there hasn't been a "Manic Mani Monday" post in a while. Anyways, for this New Year's Eve, I wanted to keep it simple but I still wanted something that said "Hey it's New Years!" This glitter nail polish is the bomb! And the best part is, it's super cheap. It's not one of those glitter polishes that only covers here and there. This stuff is legit- as far as glitter goes. If you don't have either of these polishes, just layer any glitter polish over a metallic polish. Don't forget to layer with a clear coat to keep it extra shiny! Hope you all have a fun and safe NYE!

the DIY: LEMON SUGAR SCRUB

If you are or are going to need a last minute gift, this is a great idea! This sugar scrub is quick and you probably already have everything you already need to make it. Use it on your hands, elbows, or any rough spot where you need a little exfoliation. It's also edible...? That's not necessarily good or bad but let's just say I used this stuff on my lips and... it's was real nice.

All you need it some white sugar, olive oil and lemon extract. Here are the measurements we used:
-3 Cups White Sugar
-1 Cup Olive Oil
-1 Tbs. Lemon Extract (add more if the scent is too subtle)

Mix it all up in a bowl. Of course, you can make these measurements smaller or larger depending on how much you want to make. This recipe filled up 6 of our little jars.
We cut card stock circles to fit in the jar lids and just hand wrote on top. You could print out the words if you would like.
This probably took about 20 minutes from start to finish. Literally. So easy and it makes your hands feel so soft!

the DIY: ROUTER IN DISGUISE

Now you see it...
NOW YOU DON'T.
That router has been a huge pain in the boot-ay with it's stubborn cords and ugly appearance. We finally decided to make this book cover up like we'd seen somewhere on the internet. It takes like 5 minutes and it looks much cleaner (and cute) when it's hidden.
Get an old hardback book.
Cut along the crease inside the cover with a knife of box cutter. Do this on both sides.
The book pages should come right out!
Use washi tape to decorate the spine of the pages and the cover. We thought it was cool to make both parts look like actual books.
Place your router inside the book cover and stack the pages on top!

the DIY: POM POM GARLAND

Today we are making a pom pom garland for our Christmas tree. All you need is some twine, a needle and some pom poms in the color of your choice.
Cut a piece of twine as long as you want your garland to be. Our piece is about 16 feet long. Thread the twine through the needle and tie a knot.
We are using seven different colors of pom poms.
Thread the needle through the center of the pom pom.
Tie a knot towards the end of the twine to stop the pom pom from sliding off.
Tie another knot in the twine to space the pom poms out. Ours are about 8 inches apart.
Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
And hang on your tree! Or just hang on the wall somewhere.
