!~Fimo Mania~!

fimo nail art

SO CUTE!

I’m so into fimo nail art right now, almost obsessed. Fimo nail art is made of Polymer Clay the clay is made to look like pieces of fruit or veggies or just about anything you can think of. The most common fimo nail art are fruit slices. It is baked into long cylinders that you can purchase whole and slice yourself or you can buy them pre-sliced I bought mine in Japan pre-sliced for 1oo yen which is equal to about a U.S. dollar. I went with a citrus theme. I painted my nails with two coats of Neon Orange Kleancolor nail polish. With tweezers and nail glue i carefully arranged the slices onto my nails and then went over with a clear coat and voila! I had a cool citrus themed nail!!! It is a lot of fun and looks so cute. I recommend grabbing your best girl and guy pals and coming up with fun themes and just go at it!

Fimo is sold at almost any beauty store these days. I went to Santee Alley and picked up a multi-pack with fish cakes and kiwis and about 5 other cute food designs for a buck, can’t beat that. It’s a fast, easy, and cheap way to have a professional looking manicure and feel good about yourself!

broken internet hair stick

kpop hair

hair stick

I was really sad last night because my internet stopped working. After eating about 60 cheezits, I decided to try this kpop inspired hairstyle. It’s a totally hot look right now. I’m pretty happy with it and I encourage you to try it.

To achieve this style: grab some of your hair, rap 5+ ponytail holders around it and then curl the remainder. You look amazing.

Kandii Update

We did it! We made all these kandii cuffs! Go to kandipatterns.com or youtube (duh :p ) for tutorials if you’re down to make some. Tip: tighten the elastic string every time you put a bead on. You don’t have to keep it super tightened the whole time, just make sure to tug at it. If you don’t it can get real crooked and fat and the string will show through. Not so cool.

Alpha Centauri Alien Models

Pegasus Hobbies made this really amazing model kit of a pair of Alpha Centauri Alien models. These models can be built different ways i chose both the open hatch and closed hatch way of building.

I’m a little confused because these aliens I think are  representing the Red Dwarf star that the binary star system Alpha Centauri is often confused with. So these aliens are red and very very small. However, Alpha Centaurians are according to Babylon 5, a very reputable source, are humanoids they looking nothing at all like anything from the gray family. But whatever! the important thing is that I kicked ass making these it took about 2 hours to get it together and fully painted.

Stock Photography Art Project

By Naomi Elizabeth

May 25 2010

One day last week I was reading about stock photographs and I became suddenly obsessed with the idea of taking them myself. Prior to that day I had never thought even once about the subject. Primarily because, as we all know, stock photos are disturbing, oppressive, and slightly nauseating. It was this element of filth itself that drew me to the idea.

php memory limit fix

After uploading a new plugin (WP Ecommerce) to one of my other sites, I got the following error listed multiple times on my dashboard:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1966080 bytes) in /home/********/public_html/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 4309

I also got the following error when I tried to do an auto upgrade of the plugin:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 802385 bytes) in /home4/mcgrawma/public_html/blog/wp-includes/http.php on line 1358

Even if your errors list a different line number, it is most likely the same problem: you’ve run out of php space. Here’s how I fixed it.
