Pintester

I don’t know if you guys have ever been to the website http://pintester.com/ but I recently discovered it and might be spending too much time there. This girl’s blog is all about her attempt to make things she finds on Pinterest. In her posts and shows you how she did it and whether or not it works. She is honestly hilarious, a bit vulgar at times though. So, if you are not into the swearing then maybe skip this one but I think she is pretty amusing. See below…
Funny post #1 (summarized)
Strawberries & Cream Mug Cake | Pintester

I think of myself as a tolerant person. I only groan a little when I hear a dad joke. I hang out with people who are prettier than me. And I occasionally let people with Romney bumper stickers get in front of me on the freeway. I can even tolerate the odd disgusting food item, provided it has some redeeming qualities.

Strawberries & cream mug cake has no redeeming qualities.

The rest of this story really should be told in pictures. Words cannot explain. I leave you with this.

In conclusion, if you like recipes that turn out like marginally edible sponges, you might like this. Otherwise, run. Run far away.

Ombre Nails

And, since I was headed to a Durham Bulls game later on in the evening (I love baseball. And baseball pants.), I decided to paint them Bulls team colors. Except I didn’t have Barf Orange in my collection. But Mango is close enough, right?

I did a base layer of mango, because it seemed like that was the thing to do. This nail polish is from Forever 21. I bought it because it’s the only thing from there I can wear that doesn’t make me look fat.

Also, it is scented. I think the scent is supposed to be mango, but it’s more like dear-God-turn-it-off, my-head-hurts-already-from-Diet-Coke-withdrawals, this-is-what-death-smells-like. Just in case you were wondering.

Looks nice, though.

Probably if I had not been in testing mode, I would have stopped here, with a nice happy orange base that turned out pretty well, actually. But I was determined to test this ombre thing and my head was already kind of swimmy from the fumes anyway, so I figured why the hell not.

I smeared some Vaseline on my cuticles to make clean-up easier, and also because I use Vaseline whenever possible in pin tests so that I can make off-color jokes about giant tubs of Vaseline, hurrhurrhurr.

The first nail actually went pretty well.

I was pleasantly surprised that it sort of resembled the tutorial.

Subsequent nails were less successful. Apparently, to make this work properly, you have to re-paint your sponge each time. This, in case you couldn’t guess, is a huge pain in the ass. But I tried it both ways, and you definitely need to reload the sponge for proper results. Also, it would probably be better if you used a new sponge for each subsequent nail.

I did the best I could, considering the effort I was willing to expend. And that is an honest assessment of most of the stuff I do on this blog. Some things just aren’t worth that much effort, manicures being one of them.

You get the point. She tries other stuff too not just nail tuts and baking. Check her out though, seriously. She makes my day a bit more cheerful, somehow. Haha!

    • It is a pretty awesome idea. I’m sure there are other blogs that are similar but she puts extra effort into it. Love it!
