Alt Bros on Nail Art, Manicures, and Ratchet Nails

It’s been a bit of a hiatus for my handsome alt bros; what have they been getting into? While one is killing it in analyst training, the other is dealing with whether or not to use a hashtag in his latest selfie copy or whether or not it’s “gay” to post (he’s not a homophobe people calm down). The other is dealing with moving into a new bro pad in the East Village (hopefully it’s close enough to Ella, rlly important). The other, you ask? Getting oysters with me, dancing on a roof somewhere. 

This latest question I asked has to do with hygiene and style. Nails. Whenever mine look “nice” - and by nice I mean neutral tans and greys very short - I get compliments from men (read: boys). But 60% of the time I’m rocking a struggle mani, and I’m like, um do you notice? 

Here’s what they had to say - 

Alt Bro #1: My my my…. I must say - chicks with them nails done are a major turn on for me. I don’t know why. I think it’s because I love a badass chick. But wow. Girls who take care of themselves to that level is definitely cool for me. It’s kinda hand and hand with their swag. If they rock a style like that then you know they are confident, forward, and probably a freak in the sheets - a requirement for alt bro #1. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not my only type of girl. I’m pretty versatile in my types. But definitely top 3 type of chicks I like is a girl with the type of swag to rock them nails did up for me.

Alt Bro #2: Never really notice girls nails unless they’re gross on both hands and feet, just really not a detail I ever think about. But I do think colorful big nails are tacky 90% of the time. 

Alt Bro #3: I like women who look after their nails. I notice nice colors n designs and find it quite impressive when a woman does the designs herself because it looks close to impossible but somehow these ladies pull it off. I am not a fan of the long, fake, pointy jawns that some girls wear. Makes me cringe for some reason. But to each their own.

Alt Bro #4: I think nails are sort of like purses. They probably mean a lot more to the girl and her friends than they do to most guys. 

I mean don’t get me wrong, I like when a girl is done up nice and nails are very much a part of that but I’ve never not pursued a female because her nails weren’t painted. If they’re super ratchet and fuxed up then it’s probably more of a hygiene problem in which case they likely have other issues that would stop me from approaching them but in general, to me at least, nails don’t matter all that much. It’s great when you have them looking fresh but it’s not a deal breaker if you don’t.

There you have it ya’ll. Keep them nails did for Alt Bro #1, get creative for alt bro #3, and for the others - just don’t be ratchet. Simple enough.

Julia-isms: for nice guys and girls who give a shit

Disclaimer - If this advice offends you in any way, sorry I’m not sorry. At all.

1. First things first: beauty sleep. You can’t get your life without an impeccable sleep schedule.2. The question isn’t whether or not you should use an eyelash curler, the question is, why are you asking?3. How many glasses of water are you drinking a day? Great. Now triple it.4. If you let a girl pay on the first date, not even Jesus can help you. 5. When in an intimate yet casual setting be sure to engage everyone. Side conversations between 2 in a group of 4-5 are weird. 6, maybe. Drunk, fine. 6. Don’t ask girls if they wanna “chill sometime.” This isn’t high school.7. Never ask a girl on a coffee date unless it’s strictly business. Grabbing coffee is fine, and different. 8. Dudes- not everyone thinks your beard is cute. I’m not telling you to get rid of it, but I’m asking you to please know your target market. 9. Don’t comment on what a girl is eating whether it’s healthy or unhealthy. Unless of course, you’re in a committed relationship. Then, please do. 10. Do comment on a female’s accessories. It shows attention to detail. 11. Knowing the menu is sexy. Telling a girl what to order is not. 12. If a girl tells you she doesn’t need you to walk her home, she doesn’t want you to walk her home. If a girl tells you she doesn’t need you to wait with her as she hails a cab, do not wait with her to hail a cab. Good luck out there.xx

Behold another creation birthed from Julie Morris’ no bake brownie recipe that can be found HERE. I did everything Julie has listed, except I added a few touches on top, and a touch of coconut oil in the base. Why? Not sure, but it felt right. 

After solidifying the bottom layer and pressing it into the pan and keeping it in the fridge for a few, I added a light layer of crushed almonds and walnuts. Over top, I poured a raw chocolate mix for a fudge icing type of deal. 

Making the raw chocolate is dangerously simple. You can find it HERE when I made it with the raw almond butter cups. It’s just mixing coconut oil, cacao powder, and agave or maple syrup (you can use stevia powder too and half the amount of agave/maple syrup if you’re looking to keep it less sugar or less calories) 

I feel like there’s such a misconception about vegan and/or raw recipes. They get this reputation that they are so0oo0o0o0 difficult and believe me sure - some are - but there are so many ways to change up these recipes into something more simplified. 

Next up….think it will be a paleo approved fudge or a raspberry fudge brownie. Stay tuned. Also, should I start tagging this the #trophywifeadventures?….Just wondering. Kidding, except not.

Anonymous asked:
hey julia what can you tell us about microdermabrasion? good or bad orr..?

Julia Perez
Julia Perez answered:

Hi! I’ve never gotten microderm because everytime I ask they tell me my skin should stick with peels. What I do know about it is that microderm is more for the texture - not for any active blemishes. I think if you’re worried about texture of your skin microderm would be good, but for me, i react great to peels which just make you really glow and give a more even tone to the skin. You should ask your aesthetician or dermatologist which is best for your skin. It depends what issues you are trying to fix and the type of skin you have. I highly recommend peels though. LOVE them. Did a series of laser facials back a few years ago when my skin was buggin and it was a life changer. You might want to ask about that too!
