Nails: In Royal Occassion

Here's another quickie...

So tomorrow is Queen's Day. Which is a national holiday celebrated throughout the Dutch Kingdom (actually celebrating the birthday of the queen...not Beatrix, Juliana; the previous one). And since Curacao (my little beautiful island) is part of the Dutch Kingdom, we celebrate too.
Tomorrow is going to be the last Queens Day celebration for now. Since queen Beatrix has announced that on April 30th of this year she will abdicate and her son, Willem-Alexander will be inaugurated as king of the Dutch Kingdom.

Well, for as unpatriotic as I can be, I decided to do something on my nails for the last Queen's Day anyways.
Using the colors that are used during this celebration...
ORANGE (used wide-ranged representing the Dutch royal dynasty "House of Orange") and the color of the Dutch flag RED, WHITE and BLUE.

Yada yada yada...enough history lesson. This is the super quick nail art I ended up with...
Orange and white bases with red and blue accents...(with some gold glitters on the pinky)

There, I hope you liked it.

Have you done anything crazy with your nails for Queen's day? Let me know!
In the mean time, I've already thought about my next nail art. Got a couple of days off, so you'll probably hear from me soon again (I'm gonna do my best...really)

Misc: May Photo Challenge

Well, it's that time of the month again...
Yups..time for another photo challenge. (I mean, what else did you think?)@2

It's been said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, still media and everything around us is (trying to) draw us a certain image of what is beautiful...isn't it so?
Which made me wonder, What if the beholder perceived beauty without the worldly criterion of beauty?

Well this month we decide to dedicate it to everything beautiful.
In the end, when we pay close attention there's beauty all around us. Even in places we fear to look and in the corners we oftentimes won't take a second look at.

So here's the thing. Starting May 1st show us everything beautiful that you have around AND within.
Remember, what you find beautiful doesn't necessarily need to be according to the generic/worldly standards of beauty. It's whatever YOU find beautiful!!!

The Rules are still the same as all the previous months:

  1. Take a picture a day that you think fits the daily description
    (Remember, it doesn't need to be generic and people don't necessarily need to agree with you. It's how YOU see it!)
  2. You can use any photo taking device you want
  3. Share your pics with the rest of us.
    (If you're using Twitter, use the hashtag #BeautyDepartment)
  4. Don't forget to have loads of fun while at it.
Free your creativity and let's enjoy another beautiful month together.

p.s. If perhaps you have suggestions (maybe for upcoming themes and daily words) feel free to mail me at hellodazzlingblog@gmail.com or leave your comments below.

That's it for today lovebugs,
