I have always dreamed of having long beautiful nails. You know, those nails that you can tap on everything and that make you seem so elegant and put together?
Like I remember forcing my mom to buy me those stick on nails as a kid. And I also remember being so frustrated when they would fall off every five minutes. So when I heard my co-worker say she used glue-on nails I was skeptical. Turns out, they’re one of the best things that I could have tried.
What kind of nails do I use?
The first pack I bought were the Kiss Naturals in the stiletto shape. After I used all of those, I ordered two one-hundred packs off Amazon of the stiletto shape again. However, this time they weren’t the natural nails, so they aren’t as thick, and look strange when worn without polish. They are longer and pointer though. Neither differences were a big deal for me since I always paint them and always file them down quite a bit.
All of Kiss’s nails have a tiny number on the bottom to tell you the size so you don’t have to waste time trying to sort them yourself, too. The smaller the number, the larger the nail. I haven’t tried their already painted nails, but I feel like they would work the exact same, you just can’t buy them in bulk.

I wasn’t positive if I was going to be doing another one of these posts this year, but y’all asked for it on Twitter so here we are.
This year I really thought I would be asking for mostly practical things. But here I am, 21 years old, still asking for Shawn Mendes merch and a novelty lamp. Although I would like to argue the lamp is practical since my bedroom is always so dark. Just watch my Vlogmas vlogs and you’ll see.
Which yes, I am doing Vlogams!! I didn’t think I would be doing as well as I am, but we’re on day 9 and I’ve uploaded every one or two days!! So proud of myself honestly.
But now what you really came here for! Here’s my Christmas wishlist for 2018:
Team Peter Kavinsky
The only way you wouldn’t know my love for TATBIL and Peter Kavinsky would be if you live under a rock. Or don’t follow me on Twitter.
Peter quickly became every girl’s dreamboat, but I would like to use this time to state he was mine first. Thank you.
Moving on, I found this absolutely perfect tee from My Oh My Supply Co that says “Team Peter Kavinsky” and if someone were to buy it for me I would love them forever and ever.
I honestly never thought I would go to NYC. But then I visited Kat in New Jersey in October and realized NYC was just a short train ride away and if I went that I could meet Gabby from The Swirl and mark off one more state from my bucket list!
While planning this trip Gabby asked me what I wanted to see and I think I gave her a list of like three things: the Brooklyn Bridge, the Flatiron and Central Park. To which she told me may not be possible since they are all so far apart. Well, wrong!! We ended up hitting 13 landmarks over 12 hours in two days. The first day I was with Kat and Gabby and the second day I was by myself.
So where can you make it with 12 hours in New York City?
Oculus & One World Trade Center
Kat and I took the PATH into World Trade Center Station from Newark Penn Station so I knocked two things off really quickly. She was surprised to see that the Oculus was completely empty when we got there. But then again, it was like 7:30am on a Sunday. And it was certainly crowded when we left that evening. The Oculus reminded me of the Scottish National Museum in Edinburgh actually.
