Ultimate Wedding Planning Resource Connecting Brides and Wedding Pros
We love pumps (So sexy!). We love sparkly things (Ooh shiny!). So it shouldn’t be a surprise that we would love sparkly pumps! Glitter pumps are all the rage right now in the fashion world and we couldn’t be happier. We’ve been drooling over these gold glitter Christian Louboutin pumps for a while now… But unfortunately they aren’t in our budget- Nor will they ever be in our budget for that matter! Now, we could find a more budget friendly version to purchase… OR we could just learn how to make them ourselves. You’ll Need: - Extra Fine Glitter - Mod-Podge (I used Gloss-Lustre) - Pair of Shoes – Sand Paper (or a nail file) - Bowl - Paintbrush (I didn’t use the paintbrush above, it was too big) - And something to cover your work surface (I used tinfoil) You should probably sand the shoes just to make sure that the glitter and glue can adhere to the shoes as best as it can. Next I sorted through the glitter I bought to decide which colors I wanted to use. And VOILA!

Breaking Down Beauty: Fixing Broken Powder Cosmetics « Painted Ladies By Sheila Arkee So, you have a favorite eyeshadow, pressed powder, or blush you absolutely cannot live without.

The Petalsweet Blog: Back to Class with Ron Ben-Israel In early March this year, I will have the wonderful opportunity to return to Minette Rushing's Custom Cakes in Savannah, Georgia!

How to hem denim & keep the factory edge Hey guys. So, some of you have asked how I hemmed my denim skirt by myself while keeping the factory-edge look. I've got bad news and good news for you.
