Pahlish Train Underwater

•••
I purchased this polish called Train Underwater, by Pahlish from Etsy. In short, it's awesome. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do to my tips after I painted my toes earlier. I started with 1 coat of Milani White on the Spot polish, on top of Cult Nails Get it on Base Coat. Then I added 2 coats of Illamasqua Poke (though I could have gotten away with j[...]

Small Business Saturday - Support Indie!

•••
As you all know I love supporting Indie. Today is Small Business Saturday. I wanted to show you a custom jacket I recently had made through Etsy. I have a problem with most jackets and shrugs that because my shoulders are narrow, they'll slide off. My shoulders are only about 14". When I explained this to the nice owner of Jezebel's Finery, she came up with [...]

Octopus Stew - Review

•••
Before DragonCon, I ordered from Octopus Stew because I fell in love with a pretty one of a kind Octopus, Seraphina. I'd been looking at the lovely octopus earrings for months but knew I wouldn't wear the studs, so held off until I saw something I would wear.

Supernova Designs - A Review

•••
Recently I came across Supernova Designs on Etsy. I was looking for cute little clips for my hair. Whenever my hair is shorter, I'm compelled to put some sort of clip or barrette on the right side to keep the wispies at bay.

Noadi's Art on Etsy

•••
Recently an ad was posted on my blog that I just had to click on! It was for Noadi's Art. I saw this amazing Deep Space Octopus and my jaw dropped. I'm a Lovecraft fan, and I thought this was a beautiful representation of an octopus. Additionally, I find cephalopods fascinating because of their intelligence and how sociable they are. They're escape arti[...]

Rainbow Darkness on Etsy - A Review

•••
Recently I was looking for a special item for a friend of mine. She just recently got her license to drive and got her first car, so I was very excited for her. I wanted to pick up a special 'power up' star. While looking for a shop to make what I wanted, I found Rainbow Darkness. After seeing all the cute and geeky stuff she makes, I contacted the ow[...]

Independent Spotlight: An Exclusive With Whimsy Beading

•••
July's Independent Spotlight is with Etsy gems, Kelly & Joey of Whimsy Beading. What made you decide to start creating jewelry? I give the credit to Joey, my husband. He had lost his job in the automobile industry in early 2009, and decided to make some beaded knitting stitch markers to pass the time. He would then take the stitch markers to se[...]
