The winter is really making the days smaller. Other chores take so much time that it is really difficult to squeeze in time for daily manicures.

Bangkok – My dream destination with Air Asia

I love travelling and exploring new places. I have been to the US, Europe and many other places around the globe, but never got a chance to visit the beautiful city of Bangkok.

#33DC Day 25: New Technique

This is a very late post for today. The whole day I was busy making my new light box. Yes! I replaced my old clumsy one. But I am still confused between the black and white backdrop. I like white but the pics look more clear with black in the back. Now for the bigger light box I have to search new lights. 

For today, I decided to do a Fimo manicure. I never used Fimo for my manicure so this is my new technique :)
