Hello & welcome back, my Lovelies…and Happy 2013!!! I hope your week was relaxing, fun & filled with friends, family and love! I spent a wonderful week in Florida with my family…cooking (lots & lots of baking), soaking up some sun, and gearing up for the New Year.

2013 here we come – may it be the best year yet!! I have so many exciting things planned for Miss Renaissance in 2013…and none of it could be possible without your support. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for reading & being with me on this journey!

I thought I’d start the year with a bit of a bang, so I chose some favorite Photo Outtakes from my Video Shoot. As you can see, I had a total blast getting ready (thank you again for all of the makeup/hair pampering Shannon & Tara!) and dancing like a goofball while throwing around glitter & feathers. A huge thank you to my beautiful & talented friend Rada for shooting these pictures.

Holiday Gift Guide {Part 1}

The Holidays are getting so close….and with them comes the annual hunt for gifts. I love giving gifts, so for the next few weeks I’ll put together a weekly gift guide with some of my favorite things on the Internet.

This week, I’ll start with a few of my glam Etsy favorites (as we all know, my love for metallics & glitter has no limits.) I love handmade things, and Etsy is still the place for finding bespoke, hand-crafted gifts that are fun, creative, and affordable. Any of these pieces would be perfect for a girly white elephant gift exchange or for that fun girlfriend in your life!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends, family, good food and some time to relax. I’m still stuck in a bit of a food coma this morning thanks to a fantastically huge dinner last night!!

Remember my talented new friend Astrowifey? I visited her for another manicure the other day and her creative & immaculate work still blows my mind. I came to her with a few ideas of what I wanted, and she managed to combine them and make my manicure modern, funky, geometric (which I love right now), glittery (which I love even more) and fun! I smile every time I look at my nails these days.

Color Inspiration {Big Top Party}

 
Miss Renaissance DIY Manicure

This week’s manicure is a bit of a wild card (rawrrr)! I decided to go all the way “Circus Style” and DIY this colorful creation. Doesn’t it remind you a little of an old-fashioned Big Top Circus Tent?! It took a while to choose the right color combo for this one, but other than that it was pretty simple to do. All you need is a bit of extra patience while you let each stripe dry enough to paint the next color beside it. I’d love to see this done in a bunch of different color combos! What about trying it with a bright yellow base? Or without the glitter top coat?? The possibilities here are pretty much endless…
