Summertime is here! This time of the year is the best: No school, sunshine, friends, the beach, and so much more! It’s definitely my happy time of the year (well, in addition to my birthday and Christmas, of course). Since my birthday just passed, I wanted to share a few new beauty products that I was gifted. These products are amazing and one of the things I love most about them is that they all smell so wonderful and [Read more…]
I’ll be the first to admit that I have never used self-tanner on my face. I am a champ when it comes to applying it on my body so that I have a great looking tan, but applying it on my face is a completely different story. Probably because I have super sensitive skin and then there’s always that possibility of ending up orange or streaky and having to go out in public that way. Like seriously, what do you do then?!
One of Younique’s brand new Spring products is self-tanning spray. While intrigued by a self-tanner that is a spray, it also made me a bit nervous. When I say I’m a champ with self-tanner, I’m talking about self-tanning lotion or [Read more…]
Brows on fleek. Those words have never been said to me before. Until today, that is. That’s right; I feel like I’ve finally had my brow moment and my day (read: year) has been made!
Who else has some sparse looking, wavy eyebrows? Oh. Just me? Cool. Well, let me tell you that having these unruly brows has been tough on me when it comes to wanting to have beautifully defined brows. And, for the longest time, I just thought that I’d have to live with these brows because it seemed like there was nothing that could be done to help out the situation. Dramatic, I know, but so true.
I’ve been told by many of my customers that [Read more…]
I once saw a picture that said, “If you can’t tone it, tan it!” Amen to that! There’s just something about that glowing bronzed look that lots of people can’t get enough of. You feel skinnier when you are tan. You feel more confident and pretty. You get to wear less makeup because there’s less to hide with tan skin. It’s an overall great mood booster, well for me anyways!
I like to think of myself as a self-tanning expert. (Is that even a thing? Ha!) I had a mole/cancer scare years ago (thank you, tanning beds) and am more careful about being in the sun ever since. I’ve tried lots of self-tanners through the years, have had streaky legs because I didn’t know what I was doing, and have since learned many [Read more…]

Listen up, ladies! I have found something that will blow your socks off and make your life just a little bit easier. So, who has some extra chin hair, nose hair, upper lip hair, or eyebrow excess?
As if we don’t have enough places on our bodies that require hair removal, we now have to talk about hair on our faces and how to get rid of it. Ha! It’s a topic that no woman likes to talk about, am I right?
I have found the best tool for getting rid of unwanted hair on your face. Enter the Tinkle Razor – and my short product review. I know, I know, the name is the worst, isn’t it? It makes me giggle every time I see it. [Read more…]
There are two kinds of women in the world: Lipstick lovers and Lip Gloss lovers. When I was younger, I loved playing with my mom’s lipstick, just like most little girls do. Once I got a little older and discovered lip gloss though, I never went back to lipstick.
No matter how hard my mom tried (and she did try, mostly with red lipstick at my formal dances in high school), I just never liked the way that it made my lips feel. Since then, I’ve always just been a lip gloss kind of girl. I like the way that lip gloss feels on my lips rather than the dry finish [Read more…]
It’s that time of year where the flowers start to bloom beautiful colors, when the temperatures get a big warmer, the daylight lasts longer, and bright, bold colors are everywhere you look.
No more sweaters, boots, or snow (who am I kidding? It never snows here). Ah, springtime, you make me happy! [Read more…]
I’m always looking for ways to fix my hair without having to spend too much time on it, so my interest was piqued when I saw a YouTube video about how to curl your hair with only foil and a flat iron. Consider me intrigued and naturally, I wanted to try this method out myself. It does make me wonder, however, who comes up with some of the “how to” videos I see online. It’s like, “Hmm, I am bored and have foil and my flat iron. Let’s see what I can do.” Ah, but I regress…
Today was the perfect day to try it out, as I left the house with wet hair this morning to drop my son off at school. I came home and was prepared to curl my hair [Read more…]
Let’s face it: There’s a lot of maintenance that goes into being a girl. We have to keep up our nails, get pedicures in the warm months, put on makeup, pick out the right outfit, fix our hair, and pick out the perfect accessories. And that’s just to make us presentable. It’s exhausting, right? On top of all of that, we have kids and husbands to take care of. Pets to feed (and kitty litter to clean. My life is so glamorous.) Laundry to fold. Businesses to run. Errands to [Read more…]
Ah, winter time. The time of the year when you can sit by a fire all bundled up and enjoy the colder temperatures… but these colder temperatures also bring along beauty issues for you to deal with. Instead of running out to the store to pick up the latest and greatest beauty product, take a look around your house.
You might be surprised at how many household items can help you with beauty issues, especially during this time of the year. It’s not always necessary to [Read more…]
All of us ladies have our tried and true, most favorite go-to beauty products. These are the products that work perfectly with our skin. The products that have never let us down and continue to be at the top of our lists because of just how well they get the job done. And I have a lot of these products.
Now I’m sure there’s equally great lotion, for example, out there, but I’m so happy with mine that I stay true to the brand. I always buy the exact same lotion and [Read more…]
Whether you want smoother hair, lip color that doesn’t fade, or to make a luxe body scrub that will hydrate your skin, look no further! These beauty tips will help you have all of the above and more. The best part? Most of these beauty tricks are already things that you should have at your house.
1. The perfect blow out
For shinier hair and to get the sleekest blow out possible, don’t start out with a brush. First, make sure you divide your hair into three sections (semi circle around the crown and then in the middle of your head). Then focus on one of the bottom sections first. Always work from the bottom of your hair up to the top. Once each section is [Read more…]
‘Tis the season for red lips, but how do you pull it off without looking like a clown? After all, Halloween has come and gone and I can’t imagine anyone wanting to look too costume-y, especially on the face. Red lips can be intimidating, so picking the right shade of red is crucial. Here’s a secret: Everyone can wear red, but you just need to follow some beauty rules in order to give yourself a classic look. And one of my favorite things about wearing red lips? It makes your [Read more…]
It’s that time again to review my latest Birchbox. The October Fanfare Birchbox! It’s seriously just like Christmas when I get this fun little box delivered to my door every month. It’s the best and I love that I get introduced to products I probably wouldn’t know about otherwise.
That being said, this box isn’t my favorite by a long shot. I’m big into scents and some of the scents in this box are just too strong for me. And I was given mascara, which is pointless because I sell Younique and there’s no other mascara in the world that would make me change from my beloved 3d fiber lash mascara (To learn more about Younique, click here.). So yeah, this box isn’t my favorite, but maybe you might find something you want to try, so onto my reviews. [Read more…]
