: D eye Y : Gold Dinosaurs


What you need:

  • Plastic Toy Dinosaurs
  • Gold Nail Polish – I used  Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Golden-I (Triceratops) & Sally Hansen Insta-Dri: Go for Gold (Brontosaurus) Thank god I watched Land Before Time as a kid because I am still shocked at my self that I knew the dino’s names off the top of my head. (P.s. I liked the Golden-I better because it was a more shiny gold )

So its pretty straight forward, go buy some awesome gold nail polish and some toy dinosaurs, (or whatever toy you want to paint gold!) and you have a fun accent piece for your fireplace or side table, or a fun little jewelry holder! I bought my toy dinosaurs from the dollar section of Target about a year ago not really having any idea why I bought them, so obviously I decided I would paint them gold. Hope you enjoy!

: D eye Y : Mini Succulent Planter


I’m a little obsessed with succulents. Even though i’m pretty sure they are super easy to keep alive, I have a bad track record with killing the cute little things. I bought a few of them at the grocery store the other day and didn’t know what I should plant them in until I found this awesome cement planter at Target! It’s the perfect size for the mantel above my fireplace, but I thought I could spice it up a little bit, and this is what I came up with! Here’s hoping I can keep this one alive! 🙂

what you will need:

  • succulent of your choice
  • any cement/ceramic planter you want (I got mine from Target for $7)
  • nail polish color of your choice (mine is american apparel-summer peach)
  • paint pen (sharpie metallic gold)
  • washi tape

*you can use paint pen/nail polish for both colors if you want
