The Nail Files by Yaya: Faux Reptile Nails



Here’s another easy to do manicure. The items you will need are a piece of loofah or nylon mesh, a make-up sponge, base coat, dark nail polish, a metallic nail polish and a top coat. I’m using Sally Hansen ‘Hard as Wraps’ for my base, OPI in ‘I’ve “Red” the Script’ for my dark color, Sally Hansen in ‘Celeb City’ for my metallic and my favorite fast drying top coat Seche Vite ‘Dry Fast Top Coat’. 



 As always, start with clean hands and apply a base coat. Then apply your dark color polish.



Once your polish has dried you will wrap your finger with the mesh making sure you have covered your nail and holding the mesh with your other fingers. This may be a little difficult for some, so be patient. Now, apply sliver polish with a sponge. I found it easiest to pour some polish on something you can dip the sponge into. I used a piece of aluminum foil. Careful you don’t let that polish dry because if you use the semi dry polish it becomes a little sticky and your sponge will stick to the mesh and move it around. Remove the mesh and clean your finger. Now repeat the work on the rest of your nails.

Once complete apply your top coat. And you are done!

What's in our MUA's Make-Up Bag


Hey Guys! We're going to be starting a fun series with our fabulous Make-Up Artist, Melissa! We're totally going to take advantage of what she knows and pass her tips and tricks on to you! This week take a peek inside her make up bag! Don't mind the broken finger. Think of it as an accessory ;)

 If you have any videos you'd like her to film let us know in the comments below!

Red Carpet Predictions + Our Stylist dresses Lupita Nyong'o, Amy Adams, and Jennifer Lawrence!

Red Carpet Predictions: 
If Our Stylist were Dressing 
Lupita, Amy and Jennifer as #WindsorGirls

1. Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong'o is my style crush of the moment. Her red carpet looks this year have been sleek, chic and always followed by a punch of color. I can see Lupita walking down the red carpet in our Nari Sherbet Dress! With it's shocking sherbert color and clean lines, it's totally a Lupita dress. I would keep the accessories simple with a few bracelets and simple heals.

2. Amy Adams

Amy Adams is the epitome of the glamour girl. She's always elegant and beautifully put together on the red carpet. We have quit a few dresses I think would be perfect for Amy's fair skin and feminine style. Amy would look so elegant in our Elishia-Blush Ruched Dress. It's a bit reminiscent of her 2013 Golden Globes gown, but for a fraction of the price! I would finish off the look with sparkly accessories to kick up the glamour a few notches.

3. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is by far, the 'it girl' of the year, starring in all the big box office hits! Being a younger actress Jennifer is not scared to take risks on the red carpet, while still looking chic. I would dress her in our sexy and sleek, Michaelis Dress. The sheer cutouts on the hips and back are risky, but with it's lean silhouette, I think Jennifer will really rock the red carpet in this dress. I would add a pop, with bright statement earrings, simple bag and amazing shoes!

Mel's Munchies: Pizza Crescent Rolls



I don’t know about you but I LOVE pizza! This is a little something I threw together using a few ingredients I already had in my refrigerator. It’s the perfect snack or an easy appetizer! A great idea for Superbowl Sunday!

You’ll need: approximately 1 cup of Marinara sauce, 1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, Parmesan cheese for sprinkling, and either sliced or grated cheese. I used sliced cheddar cheese but you can use your favorite type of cheese! Makes 8 pizza rolls.


First, spray a cookie sheet with a little non-stick spray and pre-heat the oven to 375°.

Open the crescent rolls, and spread them out onto a flat surface. I used a cutting board.


Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce to each triangle of dough (crescent roll) until evenly distributed. Don’t add to much because it will get messy when you roll them up!



Add an even layer of cheese to each roll. I used sliced cheese so I broke it up into pieces.


Next, roll up each crescent roll. Start from the larger end of the triangle, and roll it up to the tip. It might get a little messy! You can just wipe of the excess that might spill over.



Place each roll onto the cookie sheet. Sprinkle each with parmesan cheese.



Bake as directed on the Crescent Roll packaging, usually 10-15 minutes. You may need to add a few extra minutes to ensure the dough is fully cooked. All the ooey gooey fillings can cause it to take a little longer.


I recommend eating these right out of the oven so they’re nice and warm (but don’t burn yourself)! Enjoy!

FFF: Peanut Butter & and Jelly French Toast Sandwich by Taralynn!

Happy Friday
Where did the week go? I guess time flies by when you're keeping busy. The weather is so freaking cold here; you have to keep doing things to stay warm. I can't wait for outside running weather to get here. The treadmill is so boring! I could only do 3 miles before I quit from boredom. I did fit in a little Insanity video on my Xbox before the run to warm up the muscles. 
I made myself a nice pre-workout treat to give me a little extra energy during my workout. Sometimes I get sick of protein bars, so I venture off and do something different.
I started to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and then had this crazy idea to "French toast" it. I've seen people add cream cheese to French toast and fruit, so I knew it had to be good. You can't go wrong with peanut butter anyways. 
The peanut butter and jelly French toast sandwich was incredible. Why have I never done this before? I MEAN SERIOUSLY! You HAVE to try it! 
Ingredients: *2 Sliced Whole Wheat Bread (You can use gluten free, white, rye, cinnamon raisin bread...) *1 Tbsp Grape Jelly, *1 Tbsp Peanut Butter, *1 Large Egg. 
I used regular grape jelly. You could use any flavor you'd like. If you do not have jelly, you could mash up some berries instead. 
I used all natural creamy peanut butter. You could use almond butter, any kind of nut butter, Nutella, or cream cheese! 
Everyone knows how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich...I would hope. Unless your mom made yours every day as a kid, you should know. 
Never pile on too much peanut butter or too much jelly. The bread gets soggy and the texture gets all funky. Stick with about 1-2 tbsp of peanut butter and 1-2 tbsps of jelly. My mom used to load the jelly on, and I'd have to scrape it off everyday at lunch. 
Smack the two pieces together and vuala! You'll have yourself one nice lookin' peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 
Now, it's time to french toast the sandwich. French toast has always been a favorite breakfast of mine. It's incredibly cheap, too. All you need is bread and eggs. 
Crack the egg into a bowl or plate. Whisk it together and place the sandwich on top. 
Lather the sandwich with the egg until every single inch of the bread is covered. Don't forget the sides! 
Grease a pan and set the heat to high. 
Place the sandwich onto the pan and cook until both sides are lightly brown. 
You could also make some of these ahead of time and pack them for lunches or to-go breakfast sandwiches. 
I like to eat mine warm with maple syrup.
