Glitter Heart

A classic Valentine look, red glitter nails with a heart accent nail. The turtorial looks super easy, although I’d recommend just getting a glitter polish so keep the mess to a min!

Tiny Hearts

This is a sweet subtle way to sport Valentine nails. It’s probably the one I’ll do for myself next week. Check out the artist’s other creations if you want something more elaborate but still super cute!

Ombre Heart Tips

When I first started my nail art hobby, I tried to do this and failed so miserably that I gave up on nail art altogether for like 4 months…yea it was rough =p But I came back to it and learned some better techniques…the main one being, LET IT DRY! If you’re using stickers to achieve this look, you must, must, MUST give each coat full drying time. This design is so cute, so I’m gonna give it another shot!

Polka Dots & Heart Accent Nail

This is cute variation of the heart on the accent nail. Throw in some polka dots and you’ve got nail art that’s easy but looks more advanced!

Gold Heart Line

Reds and pinks might not be your thing, and if that’s the case, I got an adorable design featuring black and gold. But really, you could use ANY colors you wish!

How To Make The Most Out Of Your Hike In 4 Easy Steps

31 January, 2016 0 Comment

Spring is almost upon us! It’s time to start shedding those layers of sweaters and bad decisions from over the holidays and get outside for some sunny activities. One of my favorite springtime activities is hiking. It’s not too hot, not too cold, the leaves are turning green, and everyone’s out and about again. If you live somewhere near some hills our mountains, it’s the perfect free workout you can do any day. To help you get started, I’ve put together a little hiking survival guide so you can make the most out of your journey.

Step 1: Cute Workout Gear

Check! Thanks to Repeat Possessions, I’m sporting my favorite Nikibiki Sport Abstract Capris! They have a perfectly placed zipper on the side for your credit card, key, or any other little things you need to bring along with you. Living in Southern California, I’m not one to wear full pants on a hike in the sun all day. The moisture wicking material mixed with the shorter length of the capri is the perfect happy medium in keeping me comfortable all day.

Step 2: Provisions!

Bring plenty of water and snacks! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on a hike and been suddenly overcome by the overwhelming sense of hunger. After all, there aren’t any restaurants on the trails and if I haven’t eaten for an hour I get hangry. Real talk. Depending on the length and intensity of your walk, I’d suggest at least 24 oz of water and some granola bars, dried fruit, or an apple. Stick with snacks that are going to give you energy without weighing you down.

Step 3: Sun Protection

Chances are you are hiking during the day, right? Right. Do yourself a favor and cover yourself in sunscreen before you leave and bring the bottle with you. Sunburns are the worst and can lead to skin cancer and premature aging. Be sure to apply sunscreen every few hours if you’re on a long hike, especially on your face and neck. Secondly, don’t forget your sunglasses! These aviator glasses will do the trick and come in a variety of colors to choose from.

Step 4: Be Safe!

If you’re embarking on a long hike, especially one with a lack of cell service, bring a buddy! You’ll be there for each other if you get lost or injured. Let someone know when you’re leaving and when you expect to check in with them next. Another safety check- bring a portable phone charger with you. Between taking photos of the trail and anything else you might see on your way, it’s a good idea to have extra battery just in case.

Review of Our Hooded Tribal Print Tunic Sweater

This Hooded Tribal Print Tunic Sweater is one of my favorite Repeat Possessions purchases! It’s surprisingly light-weight and comfortable without being bulky. The tribal details add a pop of color with an intricate and flattering pattern on the sleeves and hood elevating the classic black silhouette.

I paired mine with some brown leather fringe ankle boots, and my favorite bohemian accessories. You can also throw this over a pair of black leggings and boots with a topknot for a cozier, more casual vibe.

With Festival season coming up, this sweater is a staple for keeping warm on those cool desert nights. Don’t make the mistake of forgetting a cover-up just because it’s 100 degrees during the day. The nights do get cold! Tie this tribal print tunic sweater around your waist with a pair of high waisted shorts or roll it in your festival bag for an easy pullover while you head back to the campgrounds. The tribal pattern is on point with the trends of the Summer, and its lightweight material will keep you warm without being overbearing.
