Nail Art Tutorial|Serve Me Some Yummy Donuts With Colorful Sprinkles

Happy Easter! I hope you all are having a great weekend, and for some of you, a nice long weekend holiday.

At one of my previous jobs, there used to be a donut shop near the office, and often the co-workers would rotate on bringing in tasty treats for the entire staff. Sadly, I don't have a donut store near me anymore, but occasionally, my sweet tooth still crave them. This nail art tutorial is, indeed, inspired by these lovely desserts.

My Introductory Julep Maven Subscription Box|Classic With A Twist

It may sound strange when I tell you that I never purchased a monthly subscription box (beauty related) until now, even though I'm a beauty blogger.

Let's Talk Blogging|New FTC Disclosure Guidelines And Google Reader Shutting Down

A review article was scheduled to go up today until some new (and important!) information appeared in my inbox, and I want share them with you.

For those who follow your daily beauty reads via Google Reader, you'll receive some depressing news this week when you pop open the feed reader because the search giant announced closing of its Google Reader (along with several other services) as part of its second round of "Spring Cleaning" effective July 1st. Although not the most popular rss reader out there, Google Reader is still widely used. If you now have to scramble for an alternative, I'd highly recommend Bamboo Feed Reader (Firefox add-on). It's free and is pretty easy to navigate.
