leopard nails.




Okay guys, so I have another nail-treat for you. You see that up there? I'm in love. I have recently converted to the leopard lovers. Which I never thought I would've, I used to think it was trashy - But I have since figured out that if you wear it right and not too much it can look so cute. So I decided, where better to have a pop of leopard than on your nails? I mean - they are always with you so you always have a pop of spunk added to any outfit. ;) So here is a quick tutorial over how I did my nails - you can do them with some pops of color (like me) or you can just use a beautiful bronze to make it look more "natural". I hope you enjoy. :)






What you are going to need.
1. A Brownish/bronze or whatever color you would like to have as your base color. I used two colors - the little one on the far left and the love and beauty one second to the right.
2. Accent colors for the spots. (you can see I used colors - you can just use a brown or whatever)
3. A dark color. (I used plum, but black will work perfectly.)
4. Toothpicks.
5. A sheet of paper.
6. Top coat.



 What you need to do.
1. Apply your base color. Let it dry.
2. Put your accent colors on a piece of paper, just drop some of it so you can dip your toothpick in the colors. 
3. Put random spots of the accent color over your nail. Apply with a toothpick.
4. Take your dark color (black/plum/whateva) and drop a dime size amount onto the piece of paper. 
5. Dip your toothpick in the paint on the paper. Apply it to the nail around the spots in a "C". 
6. Do this on allll of your nails.
7. Apply top coat.

And there you have it! So fun and so cute. If you guys end up trying this look hit me up with a link! I'd love to see how they turn out! :)

boyfriend tag.

Hey guys! I would like you to meet one of the most important people in my life. Bug. :)
It is his birthday soon, so I decided to do a little post about him, since he is such a big part of my life. He's a sweetheart - and I am so lucky to have him! 



He tried to be like Mike the "Situation", dork.



Okay - here is a video of us answering questions about each other. There really is no point in it, I just thought it would be fun. :) (And, yes, I do occasionally talk like a baby - I'm sorry, I really don't notice I do it. Lol.)

senior picture makeup.

Hey everyone!
I'm SO sorry for the lack of posts that really are fun to read - Silly me waited on everything until last minute for the sponsors, so my apologizes. :) But let's get back to the norm with some awesome posts, right?! :) 

--------------------------------------------------



As some of you may know, I am a senior this year and I am getting to go through all of the "senior" things. One of those things being senior pictures! So here is a video on how I did my make-up for those pictures. (Which I will be showing you guys as soon as I get them!) So I hope you enjoy - and please excuse the lighting/hair/mebeingaspaz. :)



First: Take a cream eye shadow - or shadow pencil in a pearly color and cover your lids. 
Second: Take an eyeliner (pencil or gel, wet won't work) and line the top of your lids. 
Third: Take a blending brush or an eye shadow brush and blend the eyeliner across your lids. 
Fourth: Take a pearly turquoise or teal and cover your lids. Blend that up a little. 
Fifth: Take a dark brown/silver color and put it in your crease. Blend up.
Sixth: Take a light silver and use that as your highlighter. 
Seventh: To add some sparkle, use a shimmer color (I used a creamy pearl, you can use whatever you have really, silver, gold, whateva.)
Eighth: Line your eyes - I chose to do a small cat-eye.
Ninth: Massssscara.

And there you have it, a super cute eye shadow look that is relatively easy - lemme know what you think. :)

---------------------------------------------------------

i love you guys, so much. :)



I started my blogging adventure about a year ago - and if I would've known how much I would LOVE it I would've started sooner. You guys, my readers, my followers, my friends - I just want to let you all know that I appreciate every single one of you! You guys are so great and I think it is so awesome that you guys are actually interested in what I am writing, like seriously. Awesome.




I started this blog thinking it would be like an online journal/notebook. Things to keep my interests all in one place. To remember things that inspired me, or that I just wanted to remember when I get older. But to my surprise, other people were interested in what I was interested in, which amazes me! 




I remember when I got that first follower - at least the first one that I didn't know on a personal level. I felt awesome. Then I hit 10 - 100 - 250 - and now 500! It's so awesome! (Sorry for the over use of "awesome" but, that is seriously how excited I am. Lol.) So I just wanted to thank you guys and tell you that you don't even know how appreciative I am of you. So thank you so, so, so, SO much. You guys are absolutely lovely - and I'm excited to show you all the adventures, idea's, tips, and tricks that go on throughout my senior year - into college - and just into life. I hope you all will stay for the ride. ;)

meet cat.


Hey guys! I have another sponsor that I want to show off. ;) Her name is Cat and she is absolutely lovely! I love her blog so much and she has similar interests just like me, so I think we are like blogging sisters. ;) She's lovely, 
make sure to check this chick out. :)





-------------------------------------------------------------------


Hello lovelies!
Hope you're all ok. Before I start rambling on about myself (this being an introductory post 'nd all) I want to say a HUGE thank you to Rach. She stumbled across my blog a few weeks back & after checking hers out too, I can see we have so much in common. (except cooking, by what I understand she is a bit of a whizz in the kitchen. Me.. not so much!) So anyway, here's a bit about me. :)


My name is Cat, I'm 20 & I live in the UK. I currently live with my parents in a small farmhouse, out in the countryside. I work full-time at a theatre, on the box office (answering phones, selling tickets) & stewarding. I actually love my job & I know I'm a very lucky girl to be able to say that! Uni has never really appealed to me, mainly because I always change my mind & would never be able to stick at one subject for 4 years! My boyfriend however, is just starting his second year & I love going to visit him & my girls. I love animals & have two dogs, a cat & a small farm full of chickens. I'm an only child, but to me, I've always had a big family, because of all of our animals. :)
Right, so now a bit about my blog! I started One hand in my pocket a couple of months back after reading some very inspirational blogs & thought 'why not give it a go' & you know what? I'm so glad I did! I never thought you'd get so much support from 'followers' which I'm now so proud to call my friends. My blog is based around fashion, beauty, days out & life in general, basically, all the things that I love in life. It's quite random, but if you're one of those people that love a bit of everything mixed into one, then I think you'll like my blog. :)
Well, I think that's about it. So why not pop over & visit me in my little blogging corner. I'd love to hear from you, maybe leave a comment or a message while you're there if you have any questions you'd like to ask me. :)
Lots of love, Cat. :)

If YOU, yes, YOU would like to have a sponsor spot make sure to check out this page and this page! I'm sure I would love to have you! :)

And don't forget to enter my giveaway! And like my FB! :)

Have a lovely day! 
(And you see that ---> over there. Yea, almost 5 hundy! Super ecstatic? YES.)
