10 Summer Toenail Art Designs

Sarah from Bombshell Bling is here today sharing some super cute nail art perfect for sporting with those flippy floppies this summer! 

10 Summer Toenail Art Designs

Hello! I am so excited to be here guest posting here at A Glimpse Inside! 
 My name is Sarah and I blog over at Bombshell Bling. I am a former elementary school teacher with a love for all things sparkly and colorful. I blog about everything from recipes and parties to jewelry and sewing. I would love for you to pop over and say hello! 
Despite the name of my blog, these days I am not very Bombshell-y OR very bling-y. Being home all day with tiny people can do that to a formely sassy-licious gal, you know what I mean? ;) I'm making an effort to be a *bit* more put together and glam this summer, and one easy way to do that is with my toenails. I spend all day every day in flip flops, so my toes are always on display. Plus, this is something fun that I can do with my daughter! 

Here are 10 cheery toenail art ideas that I found on the web. 










I hope you are inspired to give yourself a summery pedicure! 

 I would love for you to follow along with me on my blogging adventures!
 You can find me on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, G+, and FB!

Those are all so cute Sarah! Thanks for sharing!

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches from Rae Gun Ramblings

Marissa from Rae Gun Ramblings is here today with a delicious treat that would be perfect for the 4th of July or any other time this summer!! 

One of my favorite things about Summer is the blanket permission to eat lots of Ice Cream! 

Marissa here from Rae Gun Ramblings where I blog about all things delicious, creative, and bookish. Today I've got an super fun idea to add to your Fourth of July celebrations (or really any Summer gathering)! These ice cream cookie sandwiches are super easy and can be made ahead of time for a fun festive and delicious addition to any party. The fun part about these are that you can go all Martha Stewart and whip up your favorite cookie recipe and make your own homemade ice cream or you can do that fast and dirty style and pick up some cookies from the bakery (or cookie dough from the store) top it with your favorite flavor of Tillamook and you're good to go. Both ways are sure to be gobbled up!

What You Need
  • Cookies
  • Fun Sprinkles
  • Ice Cream

Thaw a small amount of your ice cream (just so it's spreadable) and set aside. 
Place a smallish scoop of ice cream between two cookies spread a thin layer of the softened ice cream and then top with sprinkles. If you try to sprinkle it onto the nice cold ice cream it tends to not stick but if you wait for it to soften you risk a drippy mess in your hands so I really like using the softened ice cream as a glue!

Fun and easy right? This would be fun with all kinds of different sprinkles. I saw some darling sea critters one the other day that would be great for a pool party! And of course you can't go wrong with rainbow sprinkles.

Great list of books to take to the pool Perfect for Summer reading.
One of my favorite things to do is share book recommendations and for me there isn't much better than sitting by the pool (or in the pool) with a really great book. I've rounded up my Top 10 Books to Take to the Pool

Egg Carton Bugs form Ginger Snap Crafts

Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts is here today with a super cute craft that your kiddos will love! 

Hi there! 
I'm Ginger from over at, & I'm so excited to be here today visiting A Glimpse Inside. :) I have 5 kiddos, so I am always looking for fun things for them to do! 

Today I'd love to share a fun activity that we have done several times over the years ~ making bugs! 

The first time we made these my oldest was turning 2 (he just turned 18!). He had a bug themed birthday party that year, & this was one of the activities we did. It was a hit! This also makes a great summer kid craft to make on those hot summer days. 

So keep reading to see how easy these ~ Egg Carton Bugs ~ are to make. :)

You'll need a few things to get started:
  • cardboard egg carton
  • craft paint
  • foam brushes
  • school glue
  • hole punch
  • googly eyes
  • pipe cleaners
  • construction paper

You'll cut the egg carton in pieces. You can do all different combinations. One spot for spiders & ladybugs, 2 spots for ants & longer ones for caterpillars & worms.

Then let your kiddos paint their "bugs" however they want.

Then you can use a hole punch to make spots for the antennas & legs. (This is probably an adult's job!)

Then stick in your pipe cleaners. Curl them with a pencil if you'd like to!

Then add some googly eyes!

We made a "home" for our bugs with the top of the egg carton. We painted it green, & then added some construction paper grass. :)

Meet our bugs! Aren't they cute??

Here are some more fun kid activities that you can find over on my blog!

Thanks so much for having me over! :)

Thanks so much for sharing those cute bugs Ginger!!
