short nails don't care

So, I’ve got that period of time when I was obsessed with my long nails and how pretty and classic they are, but then, the breakage started, one finger after the other until they were a total of four out ten broken! I took the decision and decided to cut them all, short, like really short. And I did it! It felt like my fingers now are naked or something like that, but ehh, I think I am falling in love with them!

Even though I used to clean and file my nails twice a week, when I cut them, there was a thin layer of dirt close to the nail base, which disgusting! And let’s face it, yellow/dark nails can be a turn off.

Better For Future
Staying a long time without trimming nails every once in a while is the worst thing you can do to your nails; because it’s just like hair, needs to get cut every now and then.

Great Access!
Have you ever struggled with typing on your phone or keyboard, or even couldn’t catch the small things? Yep, that’s a disadvantage I got rid of now.

Shut That Nightmare
You always worry when you got to open a can, or got afraid of the split ends of your nails while having a shower, or even folding the clothes like what happened with me? No offense, I’ve always worried about breaking one of my masterpieces.

Get Off The Lane!
Long nails are the trend of all the time, but why not trying to create your own trend instead of having the same nails as 101 girls in your school, inspire yourself and others!

Ever get the feeling like you need a change but don’t know what? I have come up with a few ideas that might help you!

Dye Your Hair
Even with temporary dye, you’ll be able to see yourself in a whole new light! If your parents won’t allow you to dye your hair, you can always convince them for some hair chalk.

Try A New Haircut
Hair always grows back! So, go ahead and try something new, something you always wanted, something edgy and sexy. Talk to your hairstylist, ask her for some ideas. You’ll thank me later.

Wear Something That You Never Would
Always wanted to wear your new dress but thought it was too much of a statement? You’re not alone. Go for it!!

Tell Your Crush You Like Them
Take a step forward! I know just about everyone gets nervous at those words but two things that can happen is that he doesn’t have feelings for you or you might be pleasantly surprised.

Start A Trend
Someone has to be the risk taker to start it, why not you?

Take Up A New Hobby
New hobbies are a great way to make new friends and uncover new talents!

Go On Vacation Or Go On An Adventure
Take a friend or two and explore! Even if it seems like the most uneventful town, there’s always something new to see!

Adopt A Pet
Saving a life can never be a bad thing.

must-see movies on Netflix

I’m a sucker for a good movie, especially a movie that’s getting older and happened to find its way onto Netflix. If you’re the same way, you’re probably constantly looking for new Netflix recommendations (aren’t we all?) but just keep coming up short. If you’ve been on a fruitless search for new Netflix movies lately, this list is sure to pacify you for at least a month or two, and it’s full of some of the best-kept secrets on Netflix!

Drive Me Crazy 
Drive Me Crazy stars Melissa Joan Hart and pre-Entourage Adrian Grenier in what might be one of the best high school romantic comedies from the 1990s. They play neighbors and former best friends who fell into completely opposite cliques in high school. That is, until Nicole (Hart) needs a date to a school dance. Chase (Grenier) steps in and one of the cutest 90s romantic comedies is born.

She Is All That
This is another adorable 90s romantic comedy set in high school. Freddie Prinze Jr. plays the jock and Rachel Leigh Cook plays the geek he bets he can turn into the prom queen. I’m sure you can figure out where the story goes from here, but it’s still a cute movie worth watching!

Fools Rush In
Can you tell yet that I have a deep love for romantic comedies from the 90s? It was one of the strangest pairings in romantic comedy history, and yet for some reason it worked so well that I’m still waiting for a sequel. Matthew Perry and Salma Hayek play a couple that accidentally get pregnant after a one-night stand and then decide to get married. It’s about as unconventional as a romantic comedy can get, which is why I think it’s so lovely.

13 Going On 30
If you haven’t seen 13 Going on 30 yet, I’m very worried about you. Jennifer Garner plays Jenna Rink, a 13-year-old girl who wishes she were 30, until she wakes up and realizes that she’s turned 30 overnight. The chaos that ensues (especially with her former best friend Matt, played by Mark Ruffalo) makes this movie a classic romantic comedy that you need to queue up on your Netflix immediately.

Good Will Hunting
Good Will Hunting is good for so many different reasons, but one of the biggest reasons was the Robin Williams role. As we close in on the one-year anniversary of his passing, there has never been a greater time to reminisce on what was easily one of the greatest movie roles he ever played. Along with that, Matt Damon and Minnie Driver gave amazing performances as well. If you haven’t seen this movie yet, it’s definitely one that you won’t forget soon!

Jersey Girl
This is without any doubt my favorite Kevin Smith film. Unlike his other brilliant comedies this is a story that is truly written from the heart. It has a lot of warmth and pain mixed in with a complex story of a man coming to terms with his fatherhood. The fact that he dedicated the film to his late father shows this to be a film maker working through the loss of an important figure in his life. Definitely a must see movie for so many different reasons, from the cast to the script and everything in between.

I rounded up the best waterproof mascara formulas to keep your lashes fully coated no matter where the sweaty summer days take you.

Pump Up Your Pool Party
Coat your top and bottom lashes with the flirty blue hue of Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes Waterproof Mascara to make your eyes (and your suit!) pop. The teeny spherical brush makes it easy to grab those hard-to-reach areas of your lashes, like the inner corners.

Complement Your Tree Pose
You can wear mascara to beach-side yoga (or plain Bikram). Covergirl The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara passed the ultimate sweat-proof test—90 minutes of hot yoga. Shorter bristles make this this stay-put formula easy to apply, and creates major lash envy with just one stroke.

Stand Up To Swim Class
I was skeptical of wearing mascara through a 30-minute swim class, but L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Rock Waterproof Mascara won me over for delivering major volume—while lasting a full underwater session.

Last Through A Wedding
Avoid a makeup meltdown during the I Dos with the waterproof version of our favorite luxe mascara: Le Volume De Chanel Waterproof Mascara. It’s completely smudge-proof—standing up to even the most sentimental speeches—so you can let those wedding tears flow. I love the rich brown shade, which is perfect for creating a softer, daytime look.

Get Beach Day-Ready
For lashes that stay put through your most rigorous beach activities, swipe on Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Smoky Lash Waterproof Mascara. You’ll get the intense black pigment you need for all those paddle boarding pictures, minus the smudges or smears.

Withstand Skyrocketing Temperatures 
Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara is tough enough to withstand scorching temps but easy to remove with just warm water and soap. This luxe, creamy formula gives lashes built-in memory control for mega lengthening and styling.

Rain-Proof Your Lashes
Outshine those unexpected summer showers with NYX Cosmetics Proof It Waterproof Mascara Topcoat. Layer this topcoat over your favorite mascara to give your eye look extra staying power.

Make Eyes On The Dance Floor
The comb-like brush of Paul & Joe Waterproof Mascara Duo grabs and rakes through lashes so they won’t clump or flake when Mercury rises. When the sun goes down, use the thicker bristle brush to pump up the volume for a bold, budge-proof gaze.

When you flirt with your crush, he’ll look you in the eyes. When you ask your boss for a promotion, she’ll look you in the eyes. On any given day, there will be dozens of people looking at your pretty peepers, so you should make sure they always look their best. In order to make that happen, you have to pay special attention to your lashes. If you normally don’t touch them, here are a few makeup tips that will help make your eyelashes look long and luscious!

Multiple Mascaras
You don’t have to stick to one mascara and leave it at that. You can buy a few different types that are meant to do different things, and then apply each of them. As long as they’re all the same exact color and you don’t apply too many coats to make your lashes look clumpy, you shouldn’t have a problem.

The Power Of Powder
You should be putting on two to three coats of mascara. In between your first and second coats, sprinkle on some baby powder to plump your lashes. It sounds silly, but it can work wonders, so you might as well test out the theory.

Rely On Your Eyeliner
You need to conquer your fear of poking yourself in the eye, because it’s important that you apply eyeliner as close as you can to your lash line. That way, it’ll appear like there’s more hair at the roots of your eyelashes than there actually is. It’s one of the easiest illusions you can pull off.

The Vaseline Queen
If you want your lashes to look longer, then you should put Vaseline on them every single night before you go to bed. The product will moisturize your dry lashes and help them become stronger. If any of them fall out, then it’ll also help you grow thicker, longer ones. So after you wash off your makeup at night and put on your face cream, don’t forget to add a little Vaseline to your lashes.

Girls Need Curls
Make sure you have an eyelash curler on hand, because curling your lashes can instantly make them look longer. If you’re really in need of assistance, you can even buy fake lashes and apply them before you leave the house. They’re tricky at first, but it shouldn’t take you long to figure out how to handle them.

Master Your Mascara
When you’re applying mascara to your bottom lashes, you should try holding the wand vertically instead of horizontally. Since the lashes are so small down there and hard to reach, you should be able to do a better job by tilting the brush. Also make sure to twirl the brush when you place it inside of its container instead of pumping it. You don’t want to ruin the product.

Alter Your Intake
If you don’t want to rely on makeup to give you the illusion of longer lashes, and actually want them to grow, you should add more silicon to your diet. Try eating more wheat, oats, and rice. After a while, it should do the trick.

Your eyes are one of the first things others will notice about you, which is why they should always look their best.
