Review: Drink Diffuser

Tags

, , , , ,

Back around the holidays I got this water diffuser bottle that I had been wanting to check out. It’s turned out to be pretty awesome. I wanted something healthy that tastes good as well. I got sick of bottled water!!

All you do is unscrew the top, chop up some fruit, and dump them in with some fresh, filtered water. After sitting a couple of hours, the water will absorb flavor and sometimes color from the fruit. If the fruits are fresh, you can leave them for about a week before you’ll want to trash it and start over with new fruit and water.

I have tried out a lot of different waters. I’ve made lemon, lime, orange water, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry water,  cucumber, strawberry water, and watermelon, strawberry water! I’ve actually tried more than that, but you get the point. (Yes, there’s a pattern with straberries, I guess they are good with everything!) I would say that my favorite, the sweetest one, is the watermelon water.

There’s health benefits to this diffuser, not just because it’s water, but the fruits are raw and contain vitamins. Lemon is known to help detox the bottle, cucumber hydrates,  and blueberries and strawberries provide anti-aging elements.

Bag of the Day: Best of Both Worlds

Today I am sharing with you one of my all time favorite purses. I have had this pretty thing since I was a high schooler. It was a gift from my mom. I like how it’s monogrammed. That’s always prevalent in southern fashion. Girls around here love to have their initials or full name on things, I guess we just like to be known, as well as organized!

I was super psyched that he honored me by sketching a few of my photos. Some of his other muses include Miley Cyrus and model Cara Delaveigne. He looks at the photos and draws them online. It’s pretty chill.

Review: Mary Kay Party

Tags

, , , ,

I went to a Mary Kay party with my best friend Michaelle the other day. It was a lot of fun, all the girls were really cool and smart. We ate muffins, drank coffee, and discussed our future careers. 015 The lip gloss we got at the party were very shiny and had sparkle to them. They are not very thick and would be best over a lipstick since they don’t have a lot of pigment in them. They are mainly for shine. My only issue with these is that they are a bit sticky for my liking. Other than that, I like to wear them with a bright lipstick. The product that I absolutely LOVED was the Oil Mattifier!! When I put it on, it immediately looked like I had on foundation. It made my skin look even toned, smooth, and matte. This stuff actually is a great thing to use daily because it’s not as heavy as foundation, and it helps your face from getting shiny. Usually my face will get shiny a couple hours after I apply makeup, but with this oil mattifier, your skin stays looking fresh and as if you just put powder on your nose. I highly recommend it!!!

Necklace of the Day: Betsey Johnson

The other month I got this cool Betsey Johnson necklace that can also be worn as a pin, making it a pendant necklace. It would be pretty as a brooch but I think it is fancier on the neck. I like the idea that I can wear it differently though since I’m a versatile person!

012

Here’s a better look. It’s a gold snake with blue eyes wrapped around a pale pink heart. Maybe it represents both good and evil ( even though I don’t believe snacks to be bad creatures!) Regardless, I think It’s rad. I’m love how Betsey produces girly things with an edgy touch. She’s such a strong woman in fashion!

The box is lovely too.

Hair of the Day: Mermaid Fleur Updo

This look was created by my friends Rita and Amber. First, Rita put a roller set in my hair and after it was dried, Amber strategically placed the curls into a romantic, bridal-esque updo. It was a lot like big pincurls, so they looked like flowers. Everyone enjoyed looking at it and after a couple days, when I took it down, people were sad that I didn’t keep it up longer. Good thing I am hard headed though, because there were over 100 bobby pins in my hair!!

012

Two pieces of hair were left hanging in order to frame my face in a feminine manor and give a less harsh vibe. Blue liner and nude lips from Marc Jacobs cosmetic line. Fur from Forever 21, striped shirt from Victoria’s Secret, boots are Black Poppy.

To keep this style the next day, I had to sleep with three hair nets, two cloth hairbands, and one scarf. It only felt uncomfortable to lay on one side, luckily, so I stayed very still on my other side!

I felt very Audrey Hepburn :)
