Cheetah/Leopard nails & toes!

Many people have asked me how i do my leopard/cheetah print nails! So now you can to! You can basically use any colors you want!

I've tried ALL of these color combinations:
  • hot neon pink as a base coat before, with black outline, and silver in the middle to fill in. 
  • yellow base, with black outline and white in the middle to fill in. 
  • green base, black outline, gold to fill in.
  • and the regular, gold base, black outline, brown to fill in. 
I wish i had pictures of the other color combinations, but unfortunately i only have pictures of those two. 

It's not that hard, and remember patience is a virtue.!

Happy polishing cute cheetah nails!

MAIL for me??

Some loverly people have been asking for my address because they want to send me a letter! I felt so special that someone would want to send ME a letter! I just got so happy that I had to go out and buy myself a PO Box. I mean I can't be giving away my home address to thousands of people because ONE out of that thousand could be a stalker or something, have to be safe!

So if anyone wants to send me a letter, well now you can!!!

This is the address:

Karolina Pecak
PO Box 403
Glen Cove, NY 11542

If you live in the USA, well then you don't need to include that part, but you can if you'd like to anyway!

I'm really excited to be getting letters in the mail! Because the only mail I ever get, are credit card balance statements just waiting to take my money hahah. 

Letters, mail...and an excited ME,

My first day of work...

Was pretty interesting. I watched videos, and filled out some paperwork! HOW WONDERFUL! Was supposed to finish my training this past friday but then the manager changed it to this coming friday, and today i have a meeting. WHAT?! i didn't even officially start working yet and now i have to go to some meeting. AND on top of that, it's snowing. I NEVER go out when it's snowing, and now I have to. this is kinda ridiculous. 

Anyways, so my first day, I wore...
Just a floral print high waisted skirt, white tank top with a little black thingie on top (since we can't have shoulders showing) and a thin black belt, and knee high boots (from Baker's). 

The manager told me my outfit was perfect, but it was a waste of a good outfit since i was in the back anyway haha. 

After I got off of work, i saw like the weirdest thing in the world. For all the years i've been going to that mall, i've never seen this before. I saw some man on stilts...
and a belly dancer...
It was so weird! But i was like "oh this is kinda cool". I hope they didn't think I was a creep for taking a picture of them for you guys!

thought i'd share my journey with all of you! Hope you enjoyed the man on stilts and the belly dancer!! :D

Up high,

Look what I did today!

So... i wanted to paint my nails today. i was thinking a matte nail polish, but then i got an idea to do hello kitty nails! (personally, i'm not CRAZY about hello kitty. i used to not even like it, now i'm just like eh, i like the nails and i like the hello kitty bags, but thats about it). But other than that i personally think hello kitty is a bit overrated. Even when i was looking for key covers, MOST of what i saw was hello kitty. 
I didn't make a tutorial. i was thinking about it, but i wasn't sure if you guys like hello kitty? SO if you want a tutorial, i will make one eventually! Just let me know here =)

My friend thinks they look so cute! She even took pictures of them for her phone!!! teeheehee. 

hello kitty cuteness,

Shaping eyebrows!

DO you need to shape your eyebrows? Are they bushy and going all over the place? Well I'll show you how to shape them! (Yes, this video was up when i first started)

You can either use a razor (which i find to be easier and less painful) or tweezers. The razor you can buy at Kmart, Sephora, and i don't know , some other places too =) Razors cost anywhere from like $4-15. 
And the tweezers, i'd suggest tweezerman tweezers, they work the best! and they now make them with cool different designs! I know ricky's has these tweezers and drugstores should have them too (not all, but some do).
I wish i had those first leopard print ones, or at least the zebra, they're so cute! But i have just neon green ones, i've had them for a while now too! They cost around $20 

So to find out how to use those guys, watch the video!! :D

Happy tweezing/razoring?

Alice's teacup!

My whole life, I've never really gone out to eat. BUT, since i've been in NYC like almost everyday of my life for the past 2 years (i don't live there, i just go to school there), i actually go out to eat with my friends. So there is this place called Alice's teacup. I've never ever been there before, but fell in love once i did. 

It's like Alice in Wonderland, the movie. It was so cool! My friend and I ordered the "mad hatter". It came with 2 sandwiches, 2 scones, 2 pots of tea, chocolate mousse, and some cookies. 

that's one of my best friends, Jenn. she's the one that took me to this amazing place and i had one great lunch!

Look how they even serve the food to you! i thought it was so cool!!!

I just thought i'd share that great experience with all of you lovely people! for those of you that live in NY/NYC, or will be here to visit, you must go to this place, because it's just so amazing!!

delicious sandwiches with apples inside,

Do you have a Valentine?

Personally, i think Valentine's day is a pointless holiday. I mean how important is it if we don't even get off from school? Exactly, it's not important at all. Some individual thought it'd be nice to make a holiday where people express their love for one another. But the thing is, shouldn't that person love you all of the time? Now just one day out of the year? Shouldn't that person buy you things from time to time and not a whole bunch of chocolate for Valentine's day?

And now what about the single people, is this like some cruel holiday to remind us that we are single? because that's exactly what it does. For those of you that are single and don't have a Valentine, I am going to be your Valentine. If you send me a message to my e-mail ( telling me you're single on Valentine's Day, i will send you a heartfelt message on February 14. That way you don't have to be alone and you'll have some beautiful message to read. =)

BUT for those that do have a Valentine, and are going out and what not, or even if you don't and want to put some makeup on like my loser self does, here is a video for you!

I'm actually kind of upset that this video is getting so many dislikes. Is it because someone doesn't have a valentine, or is it because they don't like the makeup look. In my opinion, i think the makeup is beautiful. and i absolutely love it.

Chocolate hearts and lots of hugs,
xoxo Lina

Having a bad day?

Well i'm here to tell you that you can turn your bad day into an AMAZING day. How? All you have to do is SMILE! i know it's hard when everything is just so wrong but trust me, this will work. 

I smile all of the time, and it makes others happy too! It makes others want to be around you more because they see that you're just so happy and full of positive energy. But most importantly, just a smile will make YOU happy. You will feel happy, you will see that you look happy , and you will be happy.

Top 10 reasons to SMILE! 
  1. It makes you attractive.
  2. It changes your mood.
  3. It is contagious.
  4. It relieves stress.
  5. It boosts your immune system.
  6. It lowers your blood pressure.
  7. It releases endorphins, natural pain killers and serotonin - natural antidepressant.
  8. It lifts the face and makes you look younger.
  9. It makes you seem successful.
  10. It helps you stay positive.
Did you know it takes more muscle for you to frown than to smile?
Did you know a smile can make someone else smile too?
Did you know a smile will make you happy?
Did you know a smile is what makes you beautiful?

Now that you know all of this, you go out there, out into the world and smile! Let's see what wonders it will do for you!

Smiles and happy faces everywhere, 
xoxo Lina

My puppy drives!

Well not really, but i'm sure he most certainly would love to learn how to drive! i'm not sure he'd be able to reach the gas pedal and watch what's going on, on the road. He might be a bit too tiny for that!
I was trying not to get myself in the picture, so it's why i didn't really smile. But at the same time, I was like "what if i am in the picture" haha so it's like a ugly half smile looking thing. 

I just thought i'd share this with you guys because i find it so adorable. I wish i got his paws on the wheel though. But oh well, i guess this will do. 

Now i'm off to read 150 pages worth of homework... the joys of being a college student.
xoxo Lina <3
