As Above, So Below...

I was just sent the trailer for this upcoming horror/psychological thriller called As Above, So Below (2014) and it looked like a pretty neat movie, so I thought I'd share it with you guys.

Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the secret of what this city of the dead was meant to contain. A journey into madness and terror, As Above, So Below reaches deep into the human psyche to reveal the personal demons that come back to haunt us all. 

Written by John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle (Quarantine, Devil) and directed by John Erick Dowdle, the psychological thriller is produced by Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Patrick Aiello and Drew Dowdle. Alex Hedlund serves as the executive producer.

As you all know (Or should know by now) I love nail art, polish, etc. So, when I came across a video about this new company on Kickstarter where you could make your own nail stickers (Think Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips but way cooler) using your own pictures called NailSnaps I had to share.

Instead of me babbling on trying to explain, here is a video all about the company...

If you didn't watch the video, here are a few gifs they made on how it works...


1. DESIGN. The FREE NailSnaps mobile app lets you design exactly how you want your photo or image to appear on your nails. Create an image that spans across your nails, or pick & choose different parts of an image for each finger.  

2. PRINT. Once you've got a design you love, we print & ship your high-quality nail polish stickers right to your door from our manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.  

3. ROCK. Easily apply NailSnaps yourself in minutes. No dry time, no heat & no waiting. Rock your NailSnaps. Your custom NailSnaps will last about a week or so & application is as easy as placing a sticker & filing off the edges.


Here are some sample designs NailSnaps had up on their Kickstarter page...

How flipping cool is that?!!??! I honestly think this is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while and I'm so happy NailSnaps exceeded their goal of $47,381 (Except I would have love to have donated to their campaign if I would have known about it before it ended). I cannot wait for this app to launch so I can make tons of nail stickers.

If you want to know when the app launches you can signup here or check out their various social media pages...

Empties: Products I've Used Up...

Since I love watching empties videos on YouTube (Because it's a great way to find out how someone truly feels about a product) I thought I'd do a little empties blog post. So here are a handful of products I bought (Or a family member gave me) that I've used to the very last drop...

When I ran out of my previous setting powder I decided that I'd give Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (Shade: Transparent 001) a try and I actually really really liked it. I loved the finish it left over my makeup, it didn't settle into my creases, it was easy to use, inexpensive, etc. I would have very much so repurchased this product after I finished it but I could not find the transparent shade anywhere, so I just bought NYX HD Studio Finishing Powder.

The St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub was actually something that my mother threw into my stocking at Christmas as a filler and I'm glad she decided to do so because I flipping love this face scrub. I love the exfoliating bits, the way it makes my skin feel after I rinse it off, etc. I'd buy this product in a heartbeat but I haven't been able to find it at any of my local drugstores.

Whenever my cousin moves from one place to another she always sends my sister and I random hair and beauty products that she bought, didn't like yet didn't want to throw away and this was one of those products (I like trying new products, so I'm cool with this little thing she does).

When I got the Redken Extreme Hair Strengthening Shampoo from my cousin it was practically full, so I got to really try this product and I'm kinda indifferent about it. It wasn't a horrible shampoo but it also wasn't some life changing shampooing experience. So I wouldn't go out an buy this but if my cousin gave me more I'd use it.

The Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara is hands down my favorite drugstore mascara ever and when you use it in conjunction with Cover Girl LashBlast Volume Mascara it is just perfection. I would repurchase this bad boy in a heart beat but I have so many mascaras from Birchbox, Ipsy & various makeup sets that I don't need to purchase any anytime soon, but once I work through my current stash I'll be going back to this one.

I picked up the L'Oreal EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner because I used to like the St. Ives Hair Repair Intensive Conditioner (Which was discontinued forever go) and I figured since these were both rosemary/mint that I'd like these just as much, I was wrong. I mean, they weren't horrible but they weren't amazing either. So yeah, another hair product that I'm indifferent about but would use if I had to.

I absolutely love love love the Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Facial Wipes. As you can see by how many empty packages I have, I buy these a lot and they are very much so a must have product for me. I always have a forty-five count in my refrigerator and I carry a travel ten pack with me in my purse (Everyone is always asking me for one, especially in the summer months). They are refreshing and great to have on hand. I highly recommend these.

The Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener is another product that I love and have repurchased multiple times (I already had a new one before I got to the end of the one pictured above). I use this product to help combat any darkness in my under eye area and I think it does a good job.
I will say though, when I'm done with my current one I will be purchasing the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer only because I've heard good things about it and want to give it a shot. And if it doesn't work out for me I know I can always go back to my trusty Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener.

Photos From The View...

For those of you that don't know, when you typically go to a taping of a television show they don't allow you to take photography of any kind. Well, The View (1997-Present) is different they actually lets you take pictures during commercial breaks with regular point and shoot cameras. So I did and here are some of the pictures I took throughout the course of the taping I was at...
They aren't my best work, but hey I got something...
