    Make It Lash :: My Mink Lash Experience

    Its no secret that I LOVE lashes!  I have pretty much, every mascara you can think of from curling to volumizing.  Every false lash you can think of from natural and glamorous to full and individuals.  I have it all!  But sadly, all because I wasnt blessed with the long lashes gene.  Boohoo!  One time, I even decided to get my lashes done at a local nail salon, only to come out looking worse, than when I came in with no lashes at all.  It wasnt until I saw a family member, rocking her lovely but natural looking mink lashes, that I thought I would give it another try.   After…

    DIY Steam Treatment

    I love the way my hair looks and feels after a steam treatment, but, Ive been hesitant on purchasing a streamer for home treatments.  I decided to find a more inexpensive route Heres how you can do a Steam Treatment without a streamer:  Massage your conditioner through.  I have been using Its A 10 Miracle Hair Mask Place a plastic cap over your hair.  If you dont have a plastic cap, use a plastic bag.

    Totally Rad 80s Skate Party

    This past weekend, my sister, my close friend and I, all celebrated our 30-something birthday 80s style at the local roller skating rink.  Even though Im not that great of a skater, I had a great time jamming to 80s classics and checking out the 80s apparel everyone was rocking.  And guess what?  I did not fall, not once! Bright colors, spandex and gold bamboo earrings and dookie chains were popular in the 80s, but, finding an outfit wasnt as easy as I had expected. I wanted to wear something bold, bright and daring.

    Mommy Makeover :: From Frumpy to Fabulous

    Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of doing Steph, a stay-at-home moms makeup.   While Steph is a natural beauty, as a wife and mother of three, she rarely has the opportunity to try a more glamorous look.   So we spent a Sunday afternoon glamming her up a bit.   Heres a brief rundown on what we did: We used Black Opals True Color Stick Foundation.  The foundation gave her an amazing coverage, but not too heavy still able to see her beautiful freckles. We added false lashes, that were natural looking to help beautifully frame her eyes.  Finally we gave her a fun, yet pink lip to compliment her…

    Summer Proof Easy Hair : Pin Curls

    A while back I did a post on one of my favorite, humidity proof hairstyles pin curls!  In my original post, I used Mizanis Thermasmooth Guard Serum, along with a curling iron.  Im still a big fan of the curls, as I especially LOVE the convenience and extra time I have with the no-fuss do, but since Im always trying new products, Ive switched it up a bit. Instead of Mizanis Thermasmoth Guard Serum, I have been using Biosilks Silk Therapy Serum.  The Biosilk serum is more costly, but much lighter than the Mizani serum.  I also replaced the curling iron with a flat iron.  In my experience, using the…
