A beginner’s guide to Acrylic Nails

Hello and happy weekend to you and your loved ones. Today, I share some insight into the world of acrylics because what woman doesn’t want a beautiful set of nails?

According to a nail blogger based in Hong Kong: “The acrylic nail was invented by a dentist, who broke his fingernail and then tried to fix it with tooth-filling. It worked so the Acrylic nail products started to develop, mainly for fixing broken nails. Monomer (liquid) & Polymer (powder) are the 2 main contents of Acrylic Nail.”

#SCULPTUREFORTHEWIN 🙂

Having acrylics is quite a challenge though, I battled to adjust to everyday tasks such as:

Flushing the loo

Washing my hair

House cleaning (Yes I did use gloves)

Operating a cell phone and a laptop

Getting dressed

POST-NAIL APPOINTMENT CARE:

* Baby your nails (It took me a couple of days to get the hang of things)

** Apply vitamin A AND E hand cream often to keep those hands soft and the cuticles on point

*** Fills every 2 weeks and yes this will vary from person-to-person (Start a nail appointment jar and save up!)

BONUS: Head over to Pinterest and browse THOUSANDS of ideas and save a few onto your device BEFORE you head out for your appointment. Yet despite the pitfalls for the first couple of days, I fell in love with my first-ever. I opted for the coffin-shaped nails and below is a fab guide for your next appointment:

Coffin, Almond or Stilletos

3 Must-Have Social Media Accounts

Hello, beautiful beings!

We live in an ever-changing digital era & today I share my top 3 Must-Have Social Media Accounts that are not only great to keep in touch with friends and family, but also for your business and networking needs. 

 Facebook

According to the infographic, there are over 500 million active users and about 50% log on to Facebook every day! An estimate dating back to 2010 states that 54.8% of users range between the ages of 25 – 54 years old.

What used to be a place for students has fast become a world-class place for businesses. A Facebook page is a great way to keep in touch with customers and grow your business that can reach global users. If you would like to find out more or create your own account – visiting Facebook.com and follow the steps shown on-screen

TIP: Keep your page active, ask weekly questions or post greetings. These will aid you in “vibing” with your tribe & rank higher with analytics.

Facebook Stats

Pinterest

Aside from Facebook, this little beaut of a platform is for the creative humans – Pinterest is a visual platform and requires very little wording so if you can write worthy and to-the-point captions – This is for you! Once an account is set up then you create boards and select from NewsFeed on what pins to add to your board. You can also create your own pins from your mobile device’s camera, Pixabay or Canva.

TIP: Select a clear headshot as a profile image and a short bio so that you can be viewed and followed a lot easier. For the fellow bloggers, add your site’s link to your profile #PinterestForTheWin

Keep your boards updated and limit yourself to about 5 or 6 boards (This should keep your account & NewsFeed/ Home clutter-free)

There are about 100 million active “pinners” every month and 42% are women. An average of 66% of Pinterest content that users will pin comes from brand websites.

Pinterest stats and postings

Twitter

Stats rank higher with over 1 billion users and 500 million tweets per day!

Twitter chats are online chats that you can follow with various genres to choose from. I love the TwitterSmarter chat and HootChat (Both are global and you are able to network with thousands of creatives, biz owners and more). Using hashtags ranks your status and other “twits” can engage with you on your specific hashtag. It really is a great place for all!

I use my account for both personal and professional postings with a clear photo of myself, short bio & link to my blog.

Can you eat choccies while pregnant?

Hello to the mommy-to-be reading this post today, I have an extra sweet treat just for you! Did you know that eating choccies during your pregnancy is a good thing? Why?

“The chemical phenylethylamine (Whoever can pronounce this fancy word, send me a little audio file, lol) found in chocolate, which makes the brain release endorphins, is passed on from the mother to the baby, resulting in a happier and livelier baby.” 

Scientists from Université Laval in Québec City share that eating 30g of chocolate every day during pregnancy may benefit your baby’s development in the long run – A win-win!
