Instructions:
-  Use the cardboard cutter or knife/ scissor to cut the hold of the shoe box. Remember be careful doing it and make sure that the bill can fit into the hole.
- Tape the side of the hole to avoid paper cut. If you don't want to open it every time you put the money in and to avoid temptation as well.Tape the top and bottom part of the shoe box with clear tape.
- The fun part.. cover the shoe box with your favorite wrapper or use whatever you have in hand. Afterall its all about recycling...wink:)

 Happy Thursday Everyone! As you all know, Christmas is like 6 days away! Yippee!! and it feels like it getting colder everyday. As a result my hands tend to dry up and get flaky, yikes! and sometimes it hurt! So having lotion all the time helps a lot keeping my hands soft and smooth.
Couple days ago we went to Bath and Body works to get some lotion. I'm not choosy kind of person. I'll used whatever lotion there is, but Bath and Body Works is really nice store for perfume, lotion, shower gel, candles and much more. ( My favorite store to go for this kind of stuff ). They also have cute gift baskets already wrap up for very affordable price. My favorite lotion is Signature Collection ( Sweet Pea) I just think they smell so good...! but this time I wanna to explore and try different kind  for a change, I tried the Signature Collection ( By Enchanted- Shea and Vitamin E lotion  )  The lotion is rich and it smells good...:) Perfect for this winter season! By the way, Bath and Body Works wrap your purchased really nice with Christmas bag and some coupons for future purchased. I think this is also perfect Christmas gift for your lovely friends. What you think? What is your favorite lotion? Please share..wink:)

- Apply lotion every time you need to especially this winter season to avoid the skin from drying.
- Use moisturizing or with Vitamin E lotion for best result. It works great on mine!

Silver Nail Polish Inspired!

Silver Nail Polish for Change:)


 This holiday season is the busiest month of the year with that being said, I don't think there's much time to spent for manicure. I'm not against going to the salon, actually its kinda nice to have someone clean and paint your nails. It just get little pricey to in a long run. Let say, the nail polish will last for 2 weeks and then you need to come back for another session..and so on and so fort. I've seen some of my friends and bloggers painting there nails and it look so perfect. and to tell you I was totally inspired! How easy it is to put nail polish on your nails? VERY EASY! and INEXPENSIVE! who don't like that? I'm not really fancy when it comes to my nail polish, as long I love the color and its affordable I go with it, just like my silver inspired nail polish...wink!



I didn't even have to spent to much time cleaning up my nails, I just simply put the nail polish, within less than 15 minutes I'M DONE! yes! that's how quick it is and its very easy! The good thing about this is, your saving money at the same time you learned something new...and just simply have fun painting your nails whenever you want to.

All you need are- Cleaning Nail Kit, Nail Polish, Nail Polish Remover and cotton balls. That's it!



* If this is your first time applying nail polish on your nails. It's OK! if you didn't get it nice and neat at first attempt, NO WORRY! That what nail polish remover for..
* If your Right handed, start painting your right hand FIRST using your left hand. This is method is work perfectly fine with me every time. Let it DRY and then apply the second coat and let it DRY.
* Then paint your left hand using your right hand- this make the whole process so easy for you, since your dominant hand is your right.. Again after drying the first coat apply the second one and let it dry.
* If you are not comfortable painting your nails ask your friends to come over to your place have a nice little nail painting season, all kind of girly stuffs and have fun! A perfect way to spend time together!

Hope you learn something new.. What's your favorite nail polish? Do you paint your own nails? Share me some thoughts! I love to know:)

Beaded Ring Creation

My First Beaded Ring Creation



Hello Everyone! I'm back with another bead creations, I made a Beaded Rings picture above. I think I'm kinda obsessed with making beads in past few days now. ( hahahah) I been making few rings and bracelet made of beads and of course I'll be sharing it here on my blog soon. First thing first, I suggest that you should grab something that give some boost of energy or make you inspire. for instance I like to have hot chocolate every morning and whenever I start making Rings or Bracelet. It gives me some sort of energy that I need to finish.
To be honest, I'm kinda intimidated watching the tutorial videos on You-tube at first, but you can catch on it after getting an idea of how to put the beads in position. Remember all the tiny details, in my case I'd like to write on a piece of paper and after you mastered the design move on to the next one. I think its pretty awesome if you could do everything from bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces. I suggest to work on one project and be good at it and then proceed to the next one. I did not learn doing everything in one night and like many other first timer I also encountered lot of problems, especially I go with complicated designs. The idea here is to give you inspiration to make your own beads creation and maybe you gonna love it just like how much I loved it. It's always  nice feeling to share your experience with someone who have same interest as you. I'm all hands down a craft and beads lover, seriously I get so excited seeing beads and crafty materials.. Are you? If yes! then we gonna be best friend on this project. Choose your favorite bead color combination and lets start...


Things you need:
2 ft. fishing line
1 (4mm round beads)- your choice of color
2 ( 2mm)-
E beads
11 seedbed -

Its hard to explain the directions word by word it makes it more confusing I think, I suggest to watch tutorial on YouTube to gives you some idea on how to do it. BUT I'll be posting some pictures to give you a glance on how i did it. Remember making this kind of project required patience.. I'm talking about long one!:)
NOTE: Don't be confuse about the beads color, I made two different color but the design is the same..

 This is very bead project you could ever find, Once you know the patter you can just do it over and over again.

 Continue the process until every beads is in place.

 I'm ready to make the tie the ring together:)

  This is what it looks like before puttting them altogether

 finish product! That's my daughter's hand:)

Handmade Beads Bracelet

Handmade Beads Bracelet

Hello Everyone! Aside from cooking, I'm also big fan homemade crafts and Today, I wanna share my new hobby making Handmade Beads Bracelet. The process of making it is not easy especially for first timer like ME but when you love what you do, It shows! and I learned quicker than I thought. Anyways, I find it so relaxing and I think this such a perfect gift for a friend or family. I made my first bracelet for my daughter. She LOVED it and I make one for myself I'll show some picture next time. Today, I'm making a bracelet for my friend. I hope she like this one... finger cross! well see.:)
You probably wondering where did I get the idea of making beads bracelet. There's a lot of tutorial video on YouTube nowadays that's where my outlet making this beads bracelet. Its not as hard as you thought, I'll promise!:). I admit the first time I watched the video I was totally lost! and then second time I started to catch up. The only thing to remember is start with the basic one and work from there, whatever makes you feel comfortable go for it. 
It needs some focus, inspiration to do this daunting task. I mean, the beads are so tiny and frustration can build in in no time.. knowing that your almost done and realized that there's one section where you forgot to put some extra beads.. Agh! it happened to me many times. As long as your having fun doing it, then you'll see the result on your bracelet.. Seeing someone smiling wearing the bracelet put some smile on my heart. I love doing it for my daughter and I'd like to share some of my beads bracelet creation here on my blog and to inspire other..:)

Things you'll need:
90-95 inches fishing line or Nilon- I used 8lb fishing line on this bracelet
11/0- Seed Beads ( Aqua Blue color )
6/0- E- beads ( green & crystal green color)
Bracelet locks

I wish I could explain the procedure but It's kinda hard for me to explain and trying to visualize it. ( I think it gonna be more confusing)- I highly recommend to watch some video on YouTube, there's ton out-there give you some inspiration or design of what you like. I recommend just start with very easy one or you can just do this bracelet that I posted. Its very simple! once you got the pattern your good to go!
Be inspired and hoping you'll make one of this bracelet. Keep checking on my blog for more exciting craft ideas and cute stuff... See you next time.!:)
