Blemish Be Gone

 I’m approaching the end of this spring semester at school and I’ve let papers pile up. Not only that, but finals are right around the corner. With all the stress the break outs have been happening all week. Although blemishes are a natural thing that happens to all of us, it’s a pain in the ass. Anything I can do to prevent them from popping up, I do it.

I have found an amazing product, that was recommended by a friend, that I will be heading to Sephora to buy this weekend. It’s called RareMinerals Blemish Therapy. It’s an acne treatment made by Bare Minerals. I witnessed my friend applying it, and almost instantly the minerals hide the blemish. What’s great about this product, is that it not only conceals your blemishes, but it also treats them. You can wear it to bed, or under your makeup.

While treating you skin remember to drink lots of water, and eat healthy. Those things have an affect on your skin and how rapidly it heals. 



Protection from the Sun

The weather gets lovelier everyday. I’m enjoying it and hoping that I won’t need to wear a coat again until maybe October or November. Along with the this warm weather comes the sun’s damaging UVB/UVA rays. Studies have shown that both UVB/UVA rays are stronger than ever and can cause a lot of harm. Even when it’s not blazing hot outside remember to put on sunscreen. Not just on your body, but on your face as well.

p232115_heroFor those of you who love Bare Minerals, just like me, there’s a mineral sunscreen for your face to try out. It has an SPF 30, you don’t feel it on your skin at all, and just like their makeup line, it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin. You don’t have to worry about breakouts and you’re protecting your face from the harmful sun rays.







I’m the first who should take my own advice when it comes to the sun. I love laying out and I love being tan. I’ve become more aware of the harm the sun causes. A tip I picked up is that you should buy sunscreen with a higher SPF than 30. 30 is the number everyone should be using, but the higher the SPF the less you have to reapply it. 

O and don’t forget about your lips. There are many lip balms that have an SPF of usually 15. Your lips need protection as well. 


Kissable Lips

Lips need to be taken care just like any other part of your body, so don’t leave them out. There are a ton of different lip glosses and chap sticks out there. Way too many to name. My top 4 as of now are the following:

C O Bigelow’s Mentha lip gloss is minty and moisturizing. It lasts a pretty long time. Every time I wear it I know I don’t have to worry about reapplying a million times. There are many other different flavors to try if you don’t like minty ones.

Burt’s Bee’s chap stick is my secret weapon of chap stick. In my opinion it is the best out there. Not only does is do wonders for your lips, but Burt’s Bees is an Earth-friendly company that makes natural products. I recommend all of their products. It’s affordable, good for our environment, and it works.

Lip VenomI’m also a huge fan of lip plumpers. Lip Venom from DuWop is one of my favorites, because I feel it working. I love the tingling sensation. The only thing that sucks is that it costs $16 and it’s really tiny. So I only buy it once in a while.

I had to leave the most interesting for last. Soap&Glory is a line of beauty and body products that are fun to use. Aside from the lip gloss having such a fun name (Sexy Mother Pucker) this lip plumper causes some major tingling. And not just tingling, it feels like if your lips are vibrating. I kid you not. If you want to try a lip plumper or any lip gloss you have to try Sexy Mother Pucker. You can find the line of products at Target.  Don’t you want your lips to vibrate? =)


Down with Frizz

Here are a couple more tips on how to deal with frizzy hair. Whether it’s an everyday battle or you just need to get it under control on those rainy days, you can try any of the following:

  • Avoid blow drying your hair too much. The cooler your hair stays the better. But, if you do start to dry it then you have to finish the job. If you leave your hair even slightly damp, it will start to frizz.
  • Try using a heavy conditioner. Something with the word “deep” or something similar to that on the tittle. It’ll help weigh the hair down.  On days where you think your hair will be out of control leave the conditioner in for about 5 minutes. Then rinse.
  • If a serum isn’t working, try a smoothing creme. Frederic Fekkai has a really good one called, Coiff Perfecteur Anti-frizz Silkening Creme.

Coiff Perfecteur Anti-Frizz Silkening CremeYou can find this at practically any sephora store or the website.


Speak Up =)

Hello Beautiful People

We all deal with different beauty and body issues. There are a ton of amazing products out there that help us deal with them too. I’ve tried so many things, because they all amaze me. I love experimenting and finding solutions and little fixes to our dilemmas. And more than anything I love sharing it with all of you guys.

So what’s on your mind? What kinds of beauty problems have you all got on your hands? Ask now fabulous people. I’ve probably tried  a product for it or heard of something to use. And if you’ve heard of something great then share it with the rest of us =).


Mega Volume

My hair lacks volume and so I’m always searching for a product or tool that’s going to get the job done and give me the volume I need. So for you fabulous people who share my dilemma, I’m here to help. Before, I used to blow dry my hair upside down. The volume was there when I flipped my hair up, but it went away quickly. And so after much research I’ve discovered a few things that work for me.

Hot Rollers are my favorite tool of choice right now. They heat up within 10 minutes, and they’re so easy to do yourself. I usually leave then in my hair for 15-20 minutes. While they’re in your hair you can do everything else needed to get ready like do your make-up, get dressed, grab a snack or whatever. When I take the rollers out my hair I have volume and soft waves. I love it.

You can also try root lifting sprays. I currently use Victoria’s Secret So Sexy root lifting spray. I just spray all over my roots after I wash my hair. (It smells great too). There are a ton of brands that have their own root lifting sprays. Another great one is Tresemme’s. I like theirs because it also protects against heat damage.

Victoria's Secret - Volumizing Shampoo for Fine Hair - photoVolumizing shampoos and conditioners help a ton. I use both Victoria’s Secret and Pantene Pro-V’s volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I like to alternate between brands, because when your hair gets used to one particular brand the product wont work as well. Every couple of weeks I’ll switch them.

Sometimes my hair likes to act up during rainy or humid days. By acting up I mean start to frizz. Hair serums work great for frizz and fly aways. The problem I had with serums, was that they would weigh down all my volume =(. I found a solution to that though. Victoria’s Secret So Sexy Serum is for volume as well. While you hair is damp just apply a dime size to your ends, but avoid putting too much on top.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to use all of the products at once. You can alternate. For instance, only use the serum on rainy or humid days. Or alternate between the volumizing shampoo and the root lifting sprays. Now the hot rollers I use almost everyday. But that’s just cause I’m obsessed with it right now =).

If you guys have any tips on adding volume to hair please shair. I love, love volume lol. What are some of the things you guys have tried?


Dye your hair without the Dye

Okay so I’m a hair dye virgin. That’s why I’m so excited and anxious about dying my hair tomorrow. But I love experimenting with my hair. I have brown hair, I wanted a change and I did it without the dye. I found this great product called Clairol Natural Instincts. It’s semi-perminent for your hair. In 10 minutes I had jet black hair. It didn’t do any damage, instead it made my hair really soft and shiny. And I kept it that way for about 8 months. However summer is coming and I want to leave my dark wintry locks behind.

It’s an awesome product. It washes out after about 28  shampoos. If you don’t want to change your hair color they also have a clear one that makes your hair REALLY shiny. So fabulous pplz get out there and so something out of the ordinary today. Change can be scary at times, but O so much fun.
