Matchy- Matchy with my JORD Wood Watch

(**Press Sample**)
Hi hello and happy Thursday! 

  Today's post is all about my awesome JORD Wood Watch and the nails it inspired. A wood watch now? Yes!!! My pretty piece is one of the variations of the Fieldcrest model. There are quite a few color variations available in this style but the Maple sang to me the most. I love the light beige tone of the wood and how it looks so very "natural". 
 This watch is SO light, which I absolutely love. I do not care for clunky timepieces that feel like they might break my wrist if I high-five someone. Don't let that lightness fool you though, this baby feels solidly built. Even though the watch clearly has a wooden texture, everything about the piece is smooth and polished. And speaking of polished, that is what drew me the most to this particular model. The Fieldcrest looks so very sleek, simple and sexy. I love the small stainless steel accents in the watch- face as well as around the bezel. I love watches that don't clearly look "male" or "female" and this particular style possesses that androgynous quality. 
 Now let's talk about nails for a moment. Of course.. OF COURSE.... I had to go and match my nails to this beautiful watch. No lie, I spent a good 45 minutes sitting in front of my Bettina drawer picking out which polishes matched my watch the best, and which would marble best.
 I finally settled on a base of Bettina Lingerie for my woodsy marble. For the marble portion I used Bettina Magnolia, which adds all that beautiful shimmer you see in the swirls. I also used Bettina #195 and Bettina #196. I also wanted to pull some of the Silver details onto my nail art look so I added some dots with Cult Nails Lethal. I topped my marbles off with some Seche Vite.

 I really actually love how these turned out, even if they are a bit darker than the actual watch :D. I really like how the colors came together to create a cool woodgrain look how I had envisioned in my head.
 I love the simplicity of this watch. It seems that very simplicity is what makes it so interesting. I mean, it is a wood watch! What more interest could you add than letting the beautiful wood do all the talking?

 I am really impressed with this JORD wood watch. And I am so grateful to have been presented with the opportunity to feature one on LTHP because I love great and unique products. You don't see a ton of folks going around rocking wood watches, though they should... because they are AWESOME! 




  I am beyond thrilled with this watch! She (he?) is a real beauty and I can't wait to wear it with everything!

Outfit Post: Burning Artists Collective XO America Legs

Happy Humpday!! 

  Today I want to share an outfit post with you guys. This past weekend was a BEAUTIFUL one here in Sarasota, Fl. So, this past Sunday Daniel and I were kinda bored and I asked him if he was up for an impromptu mini shoot. The amazing people behind Burning Artists Collective spoiled me rotten a few weeks back. I really can't express my gratitude enough. But what I can do, is have some kick ass times in their clothing and document it for you guys haha. I like to think I'm fierce now and then (insert "lols" here). 
  photo BACXOAmerica_zps1bb39a94.jpg
 This post is all about my amazeballs XO America Leggings. These pop art inspired leggings were a perfect fit for this mini shoot. We headed to this park, where every year they do an exhibition of amazing sculptures by artists all around the world. 
 I paired my Black and White leggings with a bright Orange top I spotted at Ross (THANKS DAD!!), some simple sandals from Ami Club Wear and accessories from Chantilly Fashion, Nail Veils and Like a Cat Jewelry.
 I seriously love this top. It is so soft, flowy and flattering. The color was perfect against the B&W striped leggings, and created a neat contrasting look.
 These leggings feature a cool "X's and O's" pattern on the left bum cheek and back lower right calf. The vertical stripes really elongate my legs and gives a slimming effect. What girl doesn't love an item of clothing that makes them look taller and slimmer?
 For reference, I am only 5'5" and weigh about 110 lbs (I wear an XS across the board in BAC clothing). I'm def not very tall, but the leggings seem to adjust to my height and there was no bunching of fabric at the ankles.

 I love how my necklace looks in this photo. As a matter of fact, I just LOVE this necklace.. So much so that I've named her Roberta (if Ru Paul can name his wigs, I can name my necklaces hahaha). This beauty came from the talented Brittany of Chantilly Fashion. She does beautiful and whimsical pieces of jewelry.  I am also wearing cute little "gear" earrings from the steampunky Like a Cat Jewelry. I stumbled upon these ladies at Tampa Comic Con and just fell in LOVE with their vibe and creations. Sunnies are from Target.

 How 'bout a close up shot of my Chantilly Fashion necklace and circle knuckle ring by the talented Su of Chronicle Stones and Nail Veils. On my nails was the mind-blowing KBShimmer Rollin' with the Chromies.

I take a walk, take a walk, take a walk... Great.. Now I have Passion Pit going through my head...  Sarasota can be beautiful some times.

Mandatory "goofing shot" haha. There were so many of these neat "rock people" sculptures. They were like something out of Dr. Who.

 I could go for more days like this one. I could also go for a drop of a few degrees in temperature. C'mon Florida hahah!!! People everywhere are getting snow and I'm here in my Bikini getting ready to lay out and catch some rays. 
 Back to BAC for a minute lol. So the XO America legs by Silver Seed designs are actually on sale right now! They are down from $62.50 to $29.95. That is a SWEEEEEET deal. These are great quality and have a great fit as well. BAC is killing me right now with all their new collabs as well. They have teamed up with some amaaaazing artists for the new collections. If you are into art and fashion, or art as fashion... You will definitely dig the BAC vibe. 

 Thank you all for stopping by today. Don't forget you guys still have ONE more day to enter my KBShimmer Giveaway!! As always, a huge thanks to my patient and supportive husband for snapping beautiful pictures of my outfit and the scenery.

LTHP Style! Burning Artists Collective Geode Designs 'Ello Scratch Leggings- A Story of how Mr. LTHP and I Tried to Meet Aliens

(**BAC Press Sample**)
'Ello Lovely readers!!! 

  Today I have a story for you. A story about how the husband and I went to Cali and back, saw some awesomeness, and tried to meet some aliens. As you guys know I have an affinity for all things nylon, shiny, tight and quirky. So.. coming across the awesome indie clothing company, Burning Artists Collective, was an awesome thing for this nylon addict. I absolutely adore their awesome designs and the part where they embrace indie artists... I scored their awesome Piano Score dress, and fell in love with their clothing. I've been very lucky to form a friendship with Teagan Tyze, who created the piano score dress. We loved each others vibe, and they were kind enough to send me a pair of kick ass leggings by Geode Designs called the 'Ello Scratch legs to have some fun with.  
  So, I wore them in an attempt to be friendly to any visitors we might have encountered... Just in case we met any aliens while at the Petrified Forest in Arizona. This was easily one of the most amazing and beautiful places I have ever been to. So husband and I decided to do a little shoot in featuring my neat-o leggings and document any alien encounters that might have happened ;). We had a ton of fun working on this little story so I hope you guys enjoy this post. Something a little different for funsies ♥.  
 There are a few pics so just keep on reading to find out what happened. Oh and... I just had to "meme" this pic lololol! I'm having fun with this whole "blogging thing" from now on! I want to share all of my creativeness with you guys. I always welcome a new challenge and transitions. But, oh yes... There will be nails.. and makeup... and fashion.. and kitties and nonsense. Afterall, my "tagline" does promise all those things hahaa. Let them have Polish!!! From head to toes!!!

That Time LTHP Met Sutan Amrull (aka Raja Gemini) at #TMSOrlando!!

Random post time!

  Last weekend I got to attend The Makeup Show in Orlando. That is where one of my dreams came true. I got to "meet" Sutan Amrull, of ANTM and RuPaul's Drag Race fame. He might be better known to some of you as the amazing Raja Gemini, winner of Season Three of RPDR. I got to watch this man in action and it was incredible. I also got to turn into a bumbling idiot in front of him, but who cares?!! I actually met one of my idols. I got to watch him work and the entire thing was just incredible.

Sutan and James Vincent go way back to working together at the first M.A.C counter. It was really surreal to have exposure to such incredible talent in one place.

Cult Nails Mish-Mash Nail Art for @TheMakeupShow #TMSOrlando

(**Press Samples**)
Good afternoon my loves!! 

  Today I feel slightly hungover. No, I was not out drinking last night. I don't drink, ever (more like can't)... Anywho, I was at The Makeup Show in Orlando all weekend long and it was a beauty high for the ages. If you follow me on Instagram(@L_T_H_P) you may have gotten a glimpse of the madness that was this amazing show. I will be doing a few posts dedicated to the show. There was a lot of amazing things going on, and I really want to share some of my experiences with you guys. 
 Since Cult Nails had a booth at the show I decided to do a mani that mish-mashed a ton of Cult Nails shade into one amazing manicure. I wanted to represent for Cult Nails, not only because I consider Maria a friend, but because they are a brand that calls Florida home and I think that is pretty neat. Cult Nails also produces an amazing product, they never disappoint, and they always think outside of the box in their approach to seasonal collections. For me, they are a breath of fresh- air with every new collection because all of their color are always so different from everything else that is on the market at the time. SO, yeah.. I had to pimp some Cult Nails, and this is what I did :D. This look features shades from the Dance All Night, Road Trip and All Access Collections. 
CN TMS Nails photo DSCN1150_zps02579d29.jpg
I will have reviews of Road Trip and All Access up very soon! I think it would be easier to break down this look by fingernail so.. let's do this!!
-Thumb and Pinky Nails: Feedback over Dance All Night over Mayhem over Wack Slacks. This was also done on my Pinky nails and you can see just how beautiful this layering turned out. They looked like some kind of jewel. 
-Index Nail: Two Timer over All Out over Grunge. This layering created one of the coolest and most unique shades I've ever rocked! Maria didn't believe me when I told her it was all Cult Nails heehee. In the photo above I am holding All Out. You need this polish. I also did this same layering on my Ring fingernail. 
-Middle Nail: Walk of Shame over Center of Attention over Be Loco. OMG, OMG, OMG. Ok, yes, so I LOVE this. I wish I had taken a macro of this nail because it was seriously so pretty and so girly and just SPARKLY!
 For the stamped details I used Bundle Monster plate BM201 for the zig- zag pattern. For the geometric pattern I used Cheeky Plate CH13. I used Konad Black special polish for the stamps. I finished my whole look off with a coat of Wicked Fast, except for the stamped nails for which I used Seche Vite to avoid smudging the stamped designs.
 During the show I had actually accented my nails with some Nail Veils by Chronicle Stones, but I didn't manage to snap a good pic of that. So here is an "ok cell" pic. I do want to go over the Nail Veils soon. I just adore these pieces. They are so edgy and different. 
 So here is a crappy cell pic of these awesome pieces. I will have an actual post soon! Oh and I ended up accenting my index with moons in You're my Dandylion and Inglot glitter stripes. I already had quite a bit of shrinkage going on at this point ahaha. 
 You can find out more about Nail Veils by visiting their site http://nailveils.com/. The pinkie piece with the dangle is one of my faves. It makes me feel very "old school glam". Or maybe like something Effie Trinket would wear. The piece on my middle finger can be customized by adding gems to the centers of the flowers. Su, the creator can make them with genuine gemstones or you can get them blank so you can use your own stones. These, semi-precious metal pieces are re-usable which would allow you to change the gems in the Flower veil piece. If you follow celeb nail artist Pattie Yankee, she is a huge fan of Nail Veils, and even had her own custom line created for NYFW this year. 

 Below are pics of my base colors which I will be reviewing soon they are Grunge, Be Loco and Wack Slacks. It is always so much fun for me to see the transformation of my nails from canvases to completed look.

 Oh and for fun here is a sneak of the awesomeness that went down at The Makeup Show Orlando. This model was painted by the artists of the Makeup For Ever Academy. I always look forward to their booth because their demos are surreal, and their creature concepts are always beautiful and beautifully executed. This model was working the heck out of this look!! She was sparkling from head to toe.
 My outfit, which pales in comparison to the beauty standing next to me, is all Black Milk Clothing. I wore The Awesome Suit as my top sine I wanted to show off my back tattoo. The skirt is the Purple galaxy skater skirt and I am also rocking the flapper hosiery. I went with simple converses because we had to do a lot of walking, but I liked it that way. The kitty ears are by Locketship.

 This year's show was an insane amount of fun. I met so many amazing people, and I got to show of my technicolor, armored nails all day long Saturday and Sunday. It was fun to wear my crazy makeup and not get stared at and it was even more fun to discuss all this beautiful makeup and all these new innovations with people who are just as passionate about this industry as I (we) are. 

 I'm really looking forward to sharing a few more posts about this show, because it really is an amazing resource for people in the industry or people trying to get into the beauty industry. That, and it was just too much of an amazing experience not to share with you guys! They are so welcoming, and they really give you the opportunity to be exposed to some of the most amazing influences in the MUA community.

 For more info about The Makeup Show you can head to their site http://www.themakeupshow.com/.

Thank you so much for stopping by today my painted beauties!! I hope you enjoyed my Cult Nails mish-mash :D.

LTHP Style! Black Milk Clothing Leggings!

Fashion! Turn to the Right!!! 

 Alright guys... first "fashion-y post".. Here we go!! I've decided to dedicate this post to one of my new-ish loves; Black Milk Clothing. 

  Ooooohhhhh Fashion!! Anywho, now that "that's out my system... It is absolutely no secret that I am obsessed with all things nylon, shiny, tight, obnoxious and awesome. Few brands cover all these bases better than, Aussie-based, Black Milk Clothing. I remember the first time I saw a picture of a pair of Black Milk leggings, I was blown away by how vibrant and just plain spectacular they were. It was a picture of, their very popular, Purple Galaxy leggings. Now, I know my style is definitely not for everyone, and I totally get that.  
 So back to BMC, I remember being all like "WHOA dem bitches are expensive" lolol... Needless to say I caved in because EVERY single photo I saw of Black Milk Clothing items was just amazing... And I HAD to find out what all the hype was about. I was done in from the second I got my first piece. Which was actually purchased for me by my amazing husband as a surprise. It was the Rainbow Galaxy dress. I was so blown away by how beautiful and colorful it was.
 I love Black Milk Clothing because in their clothing I feel confident and like I can take on the world. It may sound silly, but wearing their clothes has so boosted my confidence. As a girl who used to struggle greatly with body image; this means the world to me. They are definitely a treat, but what a treat! I mean, IDK what sorcery is in these legings... It used to be I thought everyone who wore Black Milk had/has amazing bums.... No, it is just Black Milk sorcery (though I'm sure some of these gals really do have fantastic bums :). Sorcery I tell YOU!! 

  All of these pics are phone pics :(. And if you follow me on Instagram (@L_T_H_P) you may have already seen quite a few of these photos. However, I really wanted to do an "introductory post" to what LTHP style is like ;). As I said, I want to give you guys a glimpse into more aspects of my colorful life. I don't necessarily want to discuss the outfits, I mean it is pretty clear in the pics what is going on hahaha. I guess I want to create a funky "look-book" of sorts? Who knows! I just want to have fun with these posts, be gentle haha. So, in a way I really love these pics. They are "real", they are me, and I feel they really capture a bit of my essence. A huge thank you to my amazing husband, Daniel, who always is such a good sport about taking these photos :D. We have a lot of fun doing these.

  This outfit involves a few of my favorite things. A tee with a kitteh on it, my holo Purple BMC mermaid legs and my converses. My BFF got me the tee and I think she found it at Wal Mart :D. Have fun with you wardrobe!! It is MEOW or never!!
 photo bmpurplemermaids_zpse2847f7a.jpg

 I also love to jump in my photos haha. For several reasons: 1. It's fun. 2. It's fun. 3. It shows the clothes in "action".  The top in this shot is from Target and my sandals from amiclubwear.com.
 photo PurpleMermaid_zps6dfa2601.jpg

 You guys remember this shot right? Remember the post where I matched my nails to these leggings? That was fun... I should do it with my Purple ones too!! I think Glitter Gal Purple holo might just be the perfect shade for that! Or maybe Zoya Aurora.

 One of my first BMC purchases were their original bone legs. I just love these to bits. They are a bit big on me now, but I dont care haha. I stil love them so much. Every time I wear them I get tons of compliments. The top is from American Eagle and sandals from Ami Club Wear. I am also wearing the BMC Wet Look bandeau, but you can't really see it haha.

 And another of my favorite BMC pieces are my Hex Code leggings (these were very limited however, i think they are no longer avail.). How awesome are these!!!! The blogger nerd in me needed these the second I laid eyes on them!! They are so perfectly "me" haha. I just love that I can wear pretty much anything I want with them since they do have a full spectrum of colors on them. The tee is from Tee Fury and it features Pam from Archer. Where my Archer fans at!?? *sploosh!!* hahah
  These are just a few of my fave pairs. I do have a few more, but no real good pics of them yet lol. It feels weird typing a post not about nails or makeup haha. But it also feels really good!! I know a lot of you come here for nails and makeup, but please, for the love of all that is good, don't be mean if this post is not up your alley. I know not everyone is interested in fashion or what I am wearing, but as a girly- girl and a general human being.... It feels good to write openly about some of my other passions. And if can inspire someone to really be themselves and dress how they want, because it makes them happy... my job has been done :D. 

 Well, this has been fun but I am actually off to swatch a lot of awesome Halloween collections! Like, REALLY, AWESOME! I am so impressed with what China Glaze and Dollish Polish did for Halloween this year and I cant wait to share swatches of those! I really hope that you guys enjoyed this post though. I hope to continue doing them, even if just for myself. 

 Do any of you guys own any Black Milk Clothing pieces? Any faves?
