The Kick in the Teeth that I Needed | Jenn Begins #2

Wednesday, November 30, 2016



There are times when life gives you grief.  Other times, it gives you inspiration and hope.  It can also just rare back and kick you square in the front teeth.

Swatch It Out | Random Polishes #21

Wednesday, November 23, 2016


It's finally time for a new Swatch It Out, oh yeah!  If you aren't familiar with this series, I pick seven random polishes from my collection to swatch and review here and on my youtube channel
I see which ones are worth keeping and which ones just need to retire.  So, let's just get to swatching!

[SPOILER ALERT!: this blog post is uploaded a day before the video is going live on my youtube channel.  If you don't want to have the polishes revealed until the video is live, please wait until tomorrow to read.  Thank you!!!]

Swatch It Out: Random Polishes #20

Thursday, November 17, 2016


This should have been posted on May 17, 2016 when the accompanying video with live swatches went live on my youtube channel.  Somehow, it got lost in the mix.  I felt it still pertinent to post in case someone wanted to see what these polishes look like on the nail--especially on shorter nails like mine.  (Also no photoshopping!  I'm just not that cool.)

Art Journal Page: Gray | Collage Junk Journal

Wednesday, November 16, 2016


This is a very simple, yet very fun to do, collage art journal page.  I just used magazine pages, glue, and scissors.  The process was very cathartic for me, and I just love the final result!

Trying to Change Layout Today

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

UPDATE: Mobile Nav bar should be fixed now. 

EDIT: I just need to finish the nav bar links, and it should be all back and running. YAY!!!

I finally have a moment to get a layout put in that I mentioned in the "Things Are Changing" post.  Let's hope it goes smoothly.

If the site looks like a hot mess for awhile, don't be alarmed.  I never know how this is gonna go. 

Health and Beauty Empties | Mid to Late 2016

Tuesday, November 8, 2016


It's been quite awhile since I've brought y'all an empties post that wasn't wax related.  If you aren't familiar with beauty empties, I basically hold on to all my empty bottles and containers to review the products before they hit the recycling bin for good.  I enjoy these reviews the most since they are done after a product has been repeatedly or completely used up.

As always, I've embedded my accompanying video from my youtube channel below along with quick, one line product reviews for those that ain't got time for that.  Enjoy!
