Now I have 61 nail polish, that is so crazy.  I guest my mom is right, I am a nail polish hoader. I took pictures of all my polish, I catogezrized them by color. If you like to know a certain color please ask me.

Beauty is not Defined by the size of your Jeans

I found this short list on tumblr, and I wanted to share with my readers. I think these ten things are important to know. Repeat them to yourself as often as you need.
  1. You are beautiful.  Not always and not to everyone, but we are all beautiful and deserving of love. 
  2. You do not have justify your body to anyone.  Not to your family, your friends, your doctor, your partners.  It is your body.  No one else’s.
  3. You are allowed to take up space.  Use the world around you to your advantage.  Be present in the world in as much space as you need to feel comfortable and safe.
  4. You are more than your body.  You have emotional, spiritual, and mental worth.  People might see your body first, but everything else about you matters just as much.
  5. You are allowed to change your body if you want to.  You can gain or lose weight if it is your choice to do so.  No one should shame you for either choice.  You are also allowed to keep your body exactly the way it is right now, in this moment.
  6. You are allowed to be angry over fatphobia.  You do not have to sit quietly and let those around you make you feel bad for your size.  You can be angry, resentful, hurt, sad.  You can speak out against fatphobia.  You can reject diet and weight loss talk if you do not want to hear it.
  7. You can use the word fat.  If you feel fat, you can use the word fat.  You can reclaim it as a positive.  You can use fat as a descriptor.  No one can tell you that you are too small to use it.  If it is part of who you are, do what’s best for you.
  8. You can love other fat people.  You can make fat and fat ally communities.  You can surround yourself with positive forces.  You can make fat love.  You can fat love yourself.
  9. You can wear what you want.  Crop tops and short shorts.  Mumus.  Tutus and ties.  It is up to you.  Don’t let societal pressures like ‘flattering’ dictate your outfits.
  10. You can be fat.  That is good.  That is ok.  That is a celebration.

FOTD: St. Pattys

Hey Divas

I am hoping that you all are having a good St. Patty's look. I wanted to jump on the wagon and do a St. Patty's look. I didn't wanted to have to much green in it. So I did a bright green on my lid and threw in brown in my crease. So I am on my way out the door. Happy St. Patty's Day ! ! !

Little Green in my life

Hey Divas, 

So today I wanted to kill 2 birds with one stone.  So I have been wanting to do a french tip plus do a St. Patty's Day Main as well.  So here is what I came up with.  I bought the French Tip guidelines, you still have to make sure that your lines are straight and even. My tips didn't come out the way I would have like it.  I know that this it is a working process. I think I didn't do that bad for my first time. What do you Divas think?

Candle Review: Hand Craft and More

Hey Divas!
Today I have a review on this lovely company called Hand Craft and More. The lady who owns the company is Annie Brown. I found her shop on I was looking for some homemade candles then I read on Annie's shop page, that her candles will last 3 years. YES LADIES!!! Not 1 year... not even 2... but 3 years! I was so amazed that I had to contact her and see if I can do a review on her candles. She contacted me back and sent me a candle that she made 2 1/2 years ago. I was kind skeptical when she said that but, I was willing to give it a chance.  It only took a couple of days for me to get the candle in the mail. When I open up the candle.... BAM! the scent just slapped me in the face. So I trimmed the wick and lit that baby. OMG! less than and hour my room smell soooooo good. 

The scent that she sent me was Banana. Ladies let me tell you, it smells sooooo good. It really smelled like and banana, well it smells like a banana laffy taffy lol. 
I totally forgot to tell you how much the candles cost. They range from $3.75 to $19.00. She even sells candle melts as well. 

So ladies I would give this candle a 10 out of 10. its it so worth the money, and I love that they are home made.  So go check her out:
