Hair of the Day: Elegant Metal Bun

I almost always have my hair down, but sometimes it is just too humid during summertime in North Carolina. If I am going out with my bf I will throw my hair up for a change because there is something flirty about an updo, no matter how simple or messy. My grandmother gave me this pretty bun holder a few years ago. I think it is my favorite hair accessory that she has given to me. It is kind of coll that she used to wear it. I secured it in with a few bobby pins.

Purse of the Day: Furla Crossbody

A few years ago I saw a few Furla purses at a shop beside the local movie theater. I should have gotten one, but I made the mistake of waiting, and by the time I thought about them again, they were long gone from the store! Luckily, this has been a good year for me in the world of fashion, I am reunited with Furla purses! This is my lovely ballet pink crossbody. Take a moment to bask in it’s glory!! The clasp on it is adorable and easy to open, it has that fantastic plastic-y smell, and it is a great size for concerts or a night at the club. Not to mention it is super shiny since it is cousin to the Furla Candy Bag, which I will be posting about later down the road. Stay tuned.

Review: Kylie Lip Kit

001

The hype is here. I finally decided to give Kylie Jenner’s matte lip colors a chance. As I stated a few posts back, I am in love with matte color and have divorced my glosses which I used to use religiously. Matte colors are simply more chic, they last way longer, and so they are worth it. So, what do I think of the Kylie Cosmetics brand?

024

I will say that I like them alright. However, out of all the brands I have tried, like Kat Von D, Tarte, and Too Faced, Kylie Cosmetics might fall into last place. This is because it seems to cake up a little bit, even when applied thinly spread and very carefully, and I have not had this issue with any of the other brands I mentioned. It feels a little too dry, making your lips feel very tight, which I have not experienced with other brands. The other ones I have tried are creamier. I also noticed that it doesn’t stay on as well as the others, after I eat I feel like a lot of it needs to be re-applied, whereas, I do not have to reapply¬† my matte colors by Kat Von D or Tarte.

033

I have grown up watching the Kardashians and I am very fond of them and their half sister, even though I don’t approve of everything she may do in her life, that is neither here nor there. So I am a bit sad that it doesn’t have the same lasting power or smooth creamy kind of texture that I expected. If I wasn’t such an expert on the other top matte brands, I probably would love her product! I just know too much ab0ut the super great products out there, so it makes it sound harsh when I am discussing her line. It’s def. not the worst makeup product I have tried or anything, I was just a tad disappointed. I will still wear it, and probably learn how to better apply it to make it last how I want it to. Maybe I will find a way to keep it from flaking off.

035

I’ve tried the colors Posie K and Candy K. The color in these images is Posie K.

I’ve been on a kick of creativity lately so I am trying to make a lot of products at home to be healthier, save money, and just have fun! There are several ways to make your own fragrance spray. I chose to use just three simple ingredients, and it works pretty well.

006

All you need…

  • One part Rubbing alcohol
  • Two parts water
  • Essential oils, 5 drops Thrive blend, 5 drops Grapefruit, and five drops peppermint.

Shake it up before use! It isn’t a very strong scent, if you want it to be stronger, put more of the essential oils. The great thing about the essential oils is that they don’t have all the chemicals most air freshener sprays contain, and they help sterilize, along with the alcohol of course! You can also spray it in the bathroom, in the air or straight into the commode.It works better than candles or popourri, and totally covers up foul odors by absorbing them on contact.

How To: Moisturizing Soap

Tags

, , , , , ,

Soap is expensive, at least the really nice smelling, pretty bottled ones! I’ve read so much about the chemicals in soaps like at Bath and Body Works, it makes me feel kind of ripped off when I do purchase their brand. I decided to try making my own soap. It isn’t all natural or anything, but at least I know everything that I put in it was put in it by me, which is a start to being more healthy.I just kind of winged this and it turned out great, smells awesome too.

010

So the first thing to do, get an almost empty bottle of anti-bacterial soap, with only like a very small amount of soap left inside.

Then you will want to add all these things…

  • Aloe vera gel, 3 tblspns or so
  • Hand or body lotion, 1 oz.
  • Hair Conditioner, 2 oz.
  • 10 drops of Grapefruit essential oil
  • Water, fill it up the rest of the way!

Then shake it up, pump it out a couple times and make sure it is thick enough for your liking! That’s it, saves time and money and won’t dry out your paws!!
