Vanity Bae Press On Nails Tutorial

By Posted on 1 min read 2680 views

Hi everyone, today I will be doing a press on nails tutorial using Vanity Bae press on nails. This was my first time using press on nails and I love them! They are affordable at $12.99, easy to use and stay on. A few popped off but it was easy and quick to reapply them. It is so nice to have long nicely shaped nails! Generally, this rather difficult for me with my natural nails, as they grow in uneven and break easily.

Hello all, today I am sharing with you a quick spring jeans haul. All of the jeans are from GAP, including the tops that are so not jeans. I had a lot of jeans. There was a time when I had almost no jeans. I made up for that and over they years I had quite the collection of jeans. I then stopped buying then all together as I had enough and I did not buy them for years. The last pair I bought until now was about seven years ago and even then, it was a one off purchase. Recently I have noticed that a lot of them do not fit anymore, or at least not comfortably LOL.

I came from work last week and as I usually do I sat down in front of my computer to answer emails and return comments on my blog and YouTube channel, when a video popped up on my feed about a fashion designer’s death being ruled a homicide. I looked at the thumbnail and I thought that the young woman in the photo looked very familiar. Then I clicked on the video and saw the name Katie Gallagher— and then it clicked.
