Water Marble Nails :)

So I’m a bit of a nail art addict, and have been doing all sorts of crazy nails the past year. I decided to try out the water marble one, it always looked so cool to me, but I never had the guts to try. Here’s how it all went down.

This was my first attempt, not as bad as i thought haha.

I tried some of them again, need some practice (: but pretty happy with the results. I recommend using tape or something around your fingers, it gets messy.

Love, Lou <3

Color Coral

It’s been awhile, a few weeks anyways. College is a busy time, I haven’t quite figured out how to balance everything, but I think I’m getting there, so hello blog!

Here’s a skirt I made over the summer and wore a couple sundays ago. It is deffinitly one of my favorites and I made a blue one for my roommate’s birthday too. This one has a few mistakes with the zipper (I hate zippers) but the blue one came out amazingly.

I went through a coral phase and bought everything in coral, but this skirt tops it all.

Adri’s Top 10 iPhone Apps

I have to admit that I am addicted to my iPhone. It’s the first thing I look at when I wake up and it’s the last thing I see right before I go to sleep. I probably couldn’t even wake up if it wasn’t for my phone. It just makes life easier in so many ways. Which is why I made a list of the best iPhone apps, according to me, of course, that I know a normal 20-year-old college student would find useful as well.

1. Instagram: Well obviously, Instagram is my #1 app. I just can’t seem to get enough of vintage-looking photographs. It’s so entertaining! I spend hours looking at pictures. It literally changes your life.

2. Twitter: For a social media junkie like myself, Twitter is a MUST. Though I don’t use it as much as Instagram it’s essential when you want to know what’s happening around the world.

3. Song Pop: When I had a 2005 iPod, I used to play this game called “Music Quiz” over and over. Well, Song Pop is SO much better! For music lovers and for everyone -it can help you discover new (and old) music.

4. Pixlromatic: Sometimes you want to edit photos but you don’t want the world to see them. Pixlr-o-matic does that for you. It has many cool effects for your pics.

5. Shazam: Shazam is an iPhone essential! How many times have you heard that song on the radio and fell in love but didn’t know the name or who sings it? Shazam to the rescue! It records part of the song and gives you the name and the singer INSTANTLY, how awesome is that?

6. Google Drive: Just because a pen drive is not good enough for me anymore, Google Drive is. I have all my documents everywhere I go, as long as I have internet connection, of course.

7. inClass: This app is great for college students. It keeps track of your classes, teachers, homeworks, tests and projects. You can even set and alarm. You don’t know how many times it saved me by telling me where my classroom was during the first days of school!

8. WordPress: Because, for us, bloggers, inspiration might hit anytime! So you have to be ready and post from your phone. Oh sweet technology.

9. Logos Quiz: I don’t know about you, but last time I played this I spent hours with a few friends -during class (oops)- trying to figure out the logos. Who knew there were so many brands in the world? BEWARE: It’s highly addictive!

10. Draw Something: I just had to save this spot for my favorite game ever. Even though I suck at drawing and I’m kind of re-drawing the words all over again, I love this game and I can’t get enough of it.

These are my favorite iPhone apps…what are some of yours?

Color beads

Hello!

It’s been a while…but that’s because I’ve been busy making these awesome colorful bracelets. Spring is coming here in Argentina so neon and bright colors are SO IN! Which is why I decided to start making these. They are very easy to make and it’s fun to mix and match all the colors. It’s relaxing!
….. take a look.

(thanks to my friend Meru for the photo above)

Much love, peace and colorful bracelets!

Weekend Favorites

Hi!

Today I wanna share my favorite moments of the weekend. On Friday, I went to the Maroon 5 concert, which was totally amazing!!! Adam Levine is a great singer (and dancer) and the band in general is really cool.

When I woke up on Saturday, I saw these pretty flowers on the living room table. It was such a beautiful day, and these flowers made it even more beautiful!

Then I went to a fancy restaurant in Puerto Madero with my family and a good friend. I ate meat (we’re in Argentina, so you basically HAVE to eat meat) and had a delicious “dulce de leche” volcano with ice cream. Yum!

And that’s been my weekend so far.

The moon and the sea

I took this picture in Trinidad. It’s a small island in the Caribbean, close to my home country, Venezuela. I was with my cousins and we were staying at a beach house surrounded by nothing but water (and other houses). I spent 2 weeks there and I can honestly say it was the best holiday ever, even though I had no internet or TV or cell phone or ANYTHING! It was so peaceful…just us, the sun and the sea.

This was the night before I left, the moon was so big and shiny I just HAD to take pics of it.

A piece of Buenos Aires

Hi!

Since I live in Buenos Aires (and this is were I met my cool friends) I figured I had to show you some pics of this beautiful yet chaotic city. It’s very interesting…it’s a mix of Europe and Latin America. And you can find all kinds of people. By the way, there’s A LOT of people here, which is why it might get chaotic.

Anyway, these are some pictures that I’ve taken…

Enjoy!

Flower Mania

Gigantic paper flower mania. I made a million of these to decorate the house and my dorm room and my sister’s room. I loveeeee flowers and I’m obsessed with these huge ones, so I figured the world should know how they’re made.

 

Materials: A stick, little twigs (mine have flower on the tip), some sort of ribbon or string, 3 or more sheets of tissue paper, tape, and scissors. (Click the image to see it bigger.)

 

You may need an assistant like this.

Tape the twigs to the end of the stick and cut out flower shapes from the tissue paper. This one has four petals but you can make it with more or less. Also cut a hole just big enough for the stick to pass through in the center.

Take one tissue paper that is cut into a flower shape at a time and tape it at the top of the stick. Arrange the petals anyway you want.

After you taped all the tissue paper, tie a string or ribbon around the top to hide the tape.

The end.

Walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it?  The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them. If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? 

Matt. 3: 28-30
