Nail Sticker Directions:

  1. Print out the PDF, or use the Olaf face and body JPEGs and resize it in Paint, Word, etc. to fit your own nail
  2. Place a clear sandwich bag above the correct sizing for your nail
  3. Take a clear top coat or base coat and apply a thick coat over the image you want and let it dry
  4. With acrylic paints or colored nail polish, “trace” over the image with a thin brush or striper, letting each layer dry between colors
  5. Peel off the sticker.  Use your nails, a toothpick or some tweezers to help start the peeling process
  6. Trim the sticker if needed
  7. Apply the sticker to your nails with a little bit of clear topcoat as glue.  Smooth down with fingers
  8. Apply topcoat over the sticker to smooth out the texture

August 2014 Budget Recap

(Taken from my budget on Mint.com)

*NOTE: This budget is for shopping/food/gas only, or expense that I can control fully. I’m not including fixed expenses (mortgage, utilities, medical bills) because they’re fixed and honestly pretty boring to talk about. My TOTAL spending is not reflected in this budget. “Food & Dining” = Eating Out + Groceries *

Blown Budgets:

1. Food & Dining  (this category is eating out PLUS groceries together)

2. Gas & Fuel

3. Clothing

Bralette, Ebay – $3.49

Tie dye kimono, Ebay – $15.64

Black fringe kimono, Ebay – $18.43

2 bralettes and 1 pair of gym capris, F21 – $36.81

1 t shirt, and two other t shirts that are still in process of being returned, ASOS $33.20

2 muscle T’s, H&M – $6.43

 

Overall budget

-$126

The Verdict?

We ate out A LOT during our LA trip, and as a result the dining costs were high and the grocery costs were low.  

Next months plans:

  • Hawaii!  We’ll be going to Maui (my first time to that island) and Kauai for a little vacation.. meanwhile I have to prepare some YT work so I can schedule some videos and finally relax for a bit!
