11 Things...

Good afternoon,
 I had planned to do and post an awesome Hunger Games manicure for today but I feel like trash (I'll still do it later on). So here is this tag I was tagged on (what?...) By Two lovely ladies. Nify Ba! and Nail Polish Therapy. I just met these amazing girls not long ago at the March Meet-up for Central Florida beauty bloggers (#beautybloggersorlando). So anyways.. I feel terrible.. I don't have anything quite ready to post so I figured I would do this tag. I dont normally do tags but I need something to take my mind off my whole body aching. I've spent most of my day, which started at 4:00 am, plowing though The Hunger Games Trilogy. Now my eyes need a break  from the Kindle but I still need mayah distractions... So here is this thing :-S.
The Rules
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus eleven questions for the people you have tagged to answer.
3. Choose eleven people and link them in your tag.
4. Email the person to let them know that they’ve been tagged.
5. No tag backs.
6. You legitimately have to tag. (Um... No.. I don't lol... I suck at these things... too...lazy...can't..tag...)
11 Things About Me, Cristina
1. I don't know if I can come up with 11 things about me. I always blank when it comes to things like this which is why I usually avoid tags like the plague. I don't think I'm very interesting.

2. I have a hard time making new friends. I'm kinda shy, kinda weird and very awkward. 
3. Which brings me to point no.3.. I don't know how, but when I am at work I can be little miss Sunshine and pull it off like I'm such a social butterfly lol. It's the craziest thing.

(30 min of staring off into space later)
6. I love reading. My favorite authors are Chuck Palahniuk, Ellen Hopkins, Suzanne Collins (OMG You don't say?!lol) I'm sure there are more authors I like but these are the ones I really love. I've never read the Harry Potter Books but I def. plan on it and I'm sure I will love them.
7. My favorite kind of food is anything Authentic Puerto Rican. Arroz con Gandulez, Pasteles, Alcapurrias... And now I'm hungry.

Some super stylin' pijamas....
2. What was the last thing you broke?
The nail that led me to go for nubbies full time. 
3. Do you have a custom ringtone on your cell phone?
Nope lol... I used to have all kinds of cutesy things on my phone and then it started crapping out and I had to a get a warranty replacement and I just did not feel like putting all that stuff back into place.

10. What is your most prized possession (non-makeup related)?
My wedding and engagement rings. After that I'd have to say a wedding invitation I have from my grandmothers wedding.

Painting my nails! 
9. If someone told you 10 years ago your life (activities, interests, accomplishments, etc) would be what it is now, would you believe them?
Probably not. As a young child I had VERY big ambitions that as an adult I've come to realize were way unrealistic lol.  But I am happy with my life.
10. What is your favorite place and why?
My Bed. It's safe. It's warm... It's where I do one of my favorite things..... SLEEP!!!
11. Fill in the blank: I feel most alive when: I make others happy.

I am super tired now and I will try to come up with some questions for the next person. I will not be tagging so anyone who takes this tag from me can use these questions. I invite everyone to play along.

My 11 Questions to you!

Off to cuddle with my heating pad and cry now...

As Time Passes by Tag- It's a Funny One.


  I was tagged for this by the lovely Bregje from Ooh, Shinies! I'm really bad about doing tags but this one seemed like fun and short so, why not? The point of this tag is to show how your style of pictures and skills have changed throughout your blogging. I think this tag came at a good time since LTHP just turned One and I've changed my pics around quite a bit to something I think I am finally really in love with.

  So here is what it all started with. A very crappy pic of Mad as a Hatter. My nails are only slightly longer now but taken care of much better.
LOOLLL OMG look at this hawt mess! There was even a smudge on my lens!! AGHHHH! This was my very very first nail polish picture ever! You can even see my gross cuticles from this far away.

This is what my pics look like today. Here I am wearing Swimsuit...Nailed It and Crown me Already! I just recently switched to this angle of pics and I'm really loving it because it allows me to gt in really close and show the detail in the polish well. It also seems to work so well for my shorter nails.
And there you have my "then and now :)". I'm happy with how far I've come in a year as far as photos and nail care goes. I've learned so much thanks to everyone in this community.

I suck at tags and such so I welcome anyone who feels like participating to "tag themselves". I'd really love to see every blogger that has been doing it for a while to to this tag so we can all laugh together haha!

Chris' Challenge Tag!

Hello peeps!

  Today I will be showing you a crazy mani I had to do with Three colors that should never go together lol. Why did I do this you ask? Well the awesome Chris from Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes decided she was bored with the same 'ol tags and she came up with her own fun, awesome tag. 

Here are the Rules:
1. Go to your lacquer stash
2. CLOSE your eyes and pull 3 random items - JUST 3
3. Create a mani from them
4. Post your mani when you post the tag
5. Tag 3 bloggers

I was tagged by the lovely Elizabeth from Life and Polish. So, what I did was I closed my eyes and spun around and started pulling polishes from my racks and throwing them on the ground. Then I kept my eyes closed and picked Three colors from what I had thrown on the ground. I ended up with O.P.I Teasy Does It, China Glaze Innocence and Orly's It's up to Blue.... Oh Lawd....
So I know I kinda took the easy way out but I was honestly stuck with the Three colors I got haha. It was all good until I saw that I had to incorporate Orly's It's up to Blue! 

 Just for fun here is a pic of Innocence before I added the decorations.

So now I have to tag Three bloggers. This tag has been going around so I'm sorry if you've already been tagged.

I Tag:

Good Luck Ladies!

Me Encanta tu Blog Award

Hello Darlings,

  I have received this award from the lovely Erin over at Persistently Polished. Along with the Stylish Blogger Award and the Blog with Substance award. Thank you soo much Erin!

1. Why did you create the blog?
 It was actually the suggestion of my wonderful husband after I had started collecting nail polish and posting the pictures on my personal Facebook. One day I ventured over to blogger and decided to take the plunge. 

2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
 It's mostly other nail related blogs. Some are fashion blogs and some are make- up blogs. 

3. Do you have a favourite make-up brand?
 Not particularly. I really like Bare Escentuals mineral foundation. This stuff really does make you look flawless but it never looks like I have make up on at all. My complexion is not very good either so trust me when I tell you this stuff is magical.

4. And a favourite clothing brand?
 I really like American Eagle. Their stuff is always so cute without being super trendy and obnoxious. I like Aeropostale for layering pieces like tanks and Cami's and Charlotte- Russe for Cardigans and such. Looove Pac Sun Skinny jeans. It's like they were made for me.

5. What make-up products are essential for you?
 Mineral Veil, Mascara, Nude Lip Gloss, Eyeliner

6. What’s your favourite colour?
Green everythinginbetween, Blue everythinginbetween, Purple. haha I love color way to much to chose just one.

7. What’s your favourite perfume?
 I'm going to just say it. Hands down it has to be Chance by Chanel

8. What’s the film you liked the most?
For some reason I really love Garden State. The characters in that movie are very relatable to me. And I really looooooved Black Swan.

9. What countries would you like to go?
OMG EVERYWHERE! My husband and I want to go to sooo many places I can't even sit here and list them all. But we really want to travel and see the world.

Thanks for stopping by :),

Blog Award

Hello lovelies,

  I have been tagged on this award by Shannon from Lipstick Musings. Thank you so much Shannon! I really love everything nail polish related and blogging... and blogging about nail polish. It always makes my day to see my blog find it's way to new readers.
  I've been out for a little while and now I'm playing catch up! I had an amazing b-day weekend in Key West, FL and now it's back to reality haha. So onto the award.
  Now I’m paying it forward and naming 3 of my favorite unknown blogs. Here’s the rules for the Blog Award:
- Post about this award and copy the rules. Link the person that has tagged you.
- Choose 3-5 blogs you would like to tag and link them too. Leave a comment on their blog that you’ve linked them.
- Important: This award is for unknown blogs or the ones that are just starting out rather than the “big names."
 Konad and Polish-  Kelly, who is only 12, does absolutely cute Konadicures and lives in Hawaii! LUCKY! Anywho, I think it's awesome that at 12 she has the dedication to start a blog.

Polish Lava- She is another young blogger at only 14. She has a huge collection and does really cute manis, of course. She's really creative and does really cute freehand designs.

iPolished-  She does all kinds of cute Konadicures and Freehand manis that are just awesome! 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Stylish Blogger Award

 Hello lovelies!

   A big thanks to the amazing Jen from Nail Polish A.A for tagging me on this Stylish Blogger Award!
These are the rules for this award:

1. Thank and link the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers to tell them about this award

Seven things about myself... Hhhmm... Let's see

1. I'm not a girly girl. I mean I have my days but for the most part I'd rather go on a hike or ride my bike for a long time. I love being outside in nature. I wish I lived in a state with Mountains and lot's of places to go hiking and stuff. But don't worry I still dress up and junk I'm not like all Granola mother nature and junk.... Ugh I still can't believe freaking Gretchen won Project Runway....

2. I live in Florida and I rarely ever go to the beach. I love the beach. The problem is the I live on the West coast of Florida and the beaches on this side SUCK in my opinion. The water is not blue or clear and if I can't see my feet I don't go in the water.

3. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and lived there until I was 15. My family and I moved to the states in 2001. I haven't been back to P.R since 2005 and I'm dying to go, not only for the food but for the beaches!!!

4. I watch A LOT of cartoons. When I turn on my TV and cable box the channel it defaults to is Cartoon Network (dead serious). I'm really into the funny new cartoon CN has come out with lately on Monday nights. They are not exactly for little kids lol.

5. Along with kitty Muffin, my husband and I also have a bearded dragon (Amelia) and a snake (Anubis). We got a puppy once but couldn't handle his "puppyness". He was traveling a lot and I had just gotten promoted at my job at the time so it wasn't fair to the puppy and we found him a new home. 

6. My Christmas tree is still up.

7. I can't ever come up with interesting things to say about myself when put on the spot. I.E stuff like this lol. I hope I didn't bore you guys too much haha.

  Ok, so now I have to pass this on to 15 recently discovered bloggers... Here we go. This is a mix of recent blog discoveries for me and other blogs I love.

Again, Thank you to Jen and thanks for stopping by :)!
