Last year, I “trained” my hair so that I didn’t have to wash it everyday. I used to be very mean to my hair: Wash, blow-dry, and straighten every single day. Now, I was my hair on average about every 4 days, sometimes I can go up to a week. I went through this process because I wanted to grow my hair out and and as it was getting longer, it became time consuming for me to do so much work. I’m sure a lot of you have heard about the “no-poo” method. This is a great article that I read when I first came across the concept. I haven’t tried the no-poo because I’m scared but I don’t know why. I recently was at…

Nothing is better than watermelon on a hot day! Here’s how to get that bright, gorgeous color on your lips!  ‘ I have added to my Revlon Lip Butter collection and just got Wild Watermelon. I added my Benefit Benetint stain underneath for a little extra staying power. I think this is a nice easy look that makes you look put together without a lot of product. I used the Benetint on my cheeks and a bronze color all over the lid with lots of mascara. Tell me, what is your favorite lip color? xx

I went away for the weekend and wanted to share what was in my travel makeup/toiletries bag! I was not flying, so the products were not for a carry-on or anything like that. I got my travel makeup bag at Target from the Orla Kiely line. I absolutely love it. You can check out the most similar version here, although all of the prints and patterns are a nice mix of feminine/modern/cute. In this clear compartment, I keep spillable items: Toner, moisturizer, deodorant, body spray, hairspray, face wash, contacts, and medicine. In the second compartment, I keep my makeup: Eyeshadow palette, elf under-eye primer, mascara, eyeshadow primer, concealer, concealer #2, powder, blush, bronzer, setting powder, setting spray, BB cream, mini face primer/hightlight, and my eyelash curler.…

I haven’t tried much makeup from The Body Shop, so I thought I’d give this Baked-To-Last Blush a try. When I bought this blush, it was on sale for $9 (50% off) and might still be, so check it out! It’s a baked blush so like most, it is domed. I really like the clear packaging. I would say this is on the pinker end of the coral spectrum. It takes on more of a coral tone when the two colors are swirled together. This is a very highlighting blush so if you like matte blushes, you’ll want to take a pass on this one. I am really happy with this blush and think it could be worn with a variety of eye looks and lip colors!…
