Kiss Nail Dress-Pictures

Okay so today I was feeling a little lazy. I have been on a crocheting frenzy and I cant seem to stop. My nails were bare and I needed to go to Michael's to buy more yarn. My nails needed a quick fix. I remembered that I had won 2 packages of Kiss Nail Dress and I grabbed the first set I saw. They only took about 15 minutes to apply. No drying time was needed.

Kiss Nail Dress-Peplum
I won these from Influenster in a brand challenge

28 strips and nail file
nail design booklet

back of nail strips

apply to clean nails
I swiped my nails with alcohol to make sure there were no oils on them

you can create your own design by mixing different patterns or by using the ImPress press on nails.

No top coat is needed but i applied a thin coat.
Here is a quick tutorial. Kiss Nail Dress are very easy to apply.

Cravebox-Book Lovers Cravebox-Pictures

I really enjoyed my Cravebox this month!!!

Soy Nut Trail Mix from Crum Creek. Snack contains organic blend of slightly sea-salted soy nuts,raisins,pumpkin seeds,sunflower seeds and chocolate chips.
I was very surprised that I actually liked this snack. It really was so good..
Use each bead to count the 10 things you are grateful for each day.

Gratitudes Bracelet from Alexa's Angels
The Gratitude bracelet is crafted of rich wood and rhodium beads,stretch style.
I am not much of a bracelet wearer but I don't mind wearing this one because it is so light. I barely notice that it is on. Very nice.


 Premium Licorice from Natural Vines
All natural ingredients.Cholesterol-free,low fat,low sodium,vegan,kosher and made in a nut free facility
I promise you, this will be the best licorice you will ever taste!!! My son even liked them!! They are awesome!!

Book Description

October 2, 2012
Set in a Colorado ski town, Kaya McLaren's How I Came To Sparkle Again is a remarkable breakout novel that chronicles three people and their journey from loss to love; heartbreak to hope
Jill Anthony spent her young adulthood in the ski town of Sparkle, Colorado. But more than a decade has passed since she left when, only weeks after a very late miscarriage, she finds her husband in bed with another woman, she flees Austin, Texas for the town she knows: Sparkle.
Lisa Carlucci wakes up one morning after another night of meaningless sex, looks in the mirror and realizes that she no longer wants to treat her body like a Holiday Inn. She’s going to hold out for love. The only problem is, love might come in the form of her ski bum best friend, who lives next door with his ski bum friends in a trailer known as “the Kennel.”
Cassie Jones, at age ten, has lost her mother to cancer and no longer believes in anything anymore. She knows her father is desperately worried about her, and she constantly looks for messages from her deceased mother through the heart-shaped rocks they once collected in the streams and hills of Sparkle.
Three people at the crossroads of heartbreak and healing. Three lives that will be changed one winter in Sparkle. One tender, funny, tear-jerking novel you won’t soon forget.
