Fifty Shades Trilogy

So, I finished the trilogy last week and OH MY GOSH! I loved the books! I am actually starting them all over again lol. They were a great, easy read. Yes, they were sexually explicit, but there is a reason for it. The second and third book (especially the third book) give you more insight as to why sex had to be part of the trilogy. Although I loved all the books, I have to say the second one was definitely my favorite. Perhaps it became a favorite because it is the one with more romanticism and I have a weakness for that. I highly recommend them! At the end of the day, you'll fall in love with the character that is Christian Grey. My only complaint is that the bonus chapters in Book Three left me wanting MORE. You will understand once you read them. Happy reading!

Fifty Shades of Grey

I just started reading a book that was recommended by a friend. Fifty Shades of Grey, to be exact. So far, it is a good read. I am still seemingly creeped out by the controlling-everything-has-to-go-my-way Christian Grey. He seems to be hiding something beneath his controlling demeanor. At times, he is so loving and caring, but he seems almost afraid of being that way. It's almost as if he is afraid to fall in love with "Miss. Steele." He doesn't think she should like him, but he goes out of his way to find her. He wants to stay away, but he cannot. I cannot wait to finish this book and move on to the next two to finish the trilogy. Happy reading!

Facebook Etiquette RANT

There should be some sort of fb rules in place.
1. Don’t tell me your whole life story in your status update(s).
i.e. I’m at the mall. I’m eating some chicken. I’m in the bathroom. Now I’m cleaning. Such a long day, I’m going to sleep. I hate him…. (Two seconds later) I love him.
Please, get your act together and stop giving TMI. A lot of us don’t care! J
2. Your/you’re, there/they’re/their, alot/a lot, could’ve/would’ve  vs. could of/ would of, then/than,  yourself/yourselves, to/too/two, are/our, these/this, woman/women, men/man, on/in, its/it’s… You get the point.
3. Use periods, commas, semicolons, colons and any other punctuation marks correctly!  I hate seeing run-on sentences.
i.e. I was going to go shopping but my mom wanted to go eat so I took her then we went to visit my aunt and I hung around with my cousins  then it was time to go shopping and I was so happy because I finally got the new shoes I wanted.
For starters, I have seen people post stuff like this before. Second of all, it goes back to #1. It’s too much damn information. Run-on sentences/fragments just make you look dumb. Sorry.
4. If you’re going to post a quote or a joke or anything at all that you saw somewhere, please add quotations. Don’t pass it on as your own words. It’s called plagiarizing and people can check if you’re the originator lol…
5. LMS… Don’t get me started on this. It’s ANNOYING!

I'll add more as they come along haha

Leopard Nails and 4-strand Braid

I am currently head over heels in love with my nails and this braid!
The base from my nails are Opi's Mod About You. I absolutely love this color! It's a very white pink, but it is amazing. I saw this color on a post from Scrangie's  and ever since, I couldn't help but love it!  To achieve the leopard print, I used the M57 Konad plate. I am still new to stamping, but I think I did okay for my second try. On top of that, I added some Fairy Dust by China Glaze and covered that with some Seche Vite. I got many compliments on my nails even though I feel that they aren't the greatest.
Now, my braid... Omg, I am so obsessed with it. Only thing that sucks is that because my hair is in layers, half of it comes out. So there you have it, my current obsessions! :)

Just writing...

Since who knows who will ever read this, I'm just going to write my random thoughts here. My sister and I want to begin some sort of business. Possibly a food-related business. I love baking and she loves cooking and we are pretty good at it. However, we have a huge problem... MONEY and how would we generate business. I really hope that we can accomplish this! It would be fun and it would be some kind of way to create money!
