November Blog Hop: Five Products I am Thankful for


1) Foundation: I have ruddy skin so it is totally needed to even out my skin tone.


2) Manicure: Whether Fake nails or your own, it is so pampering.


3) Hair tools: I have hair that is frizzy and in between curly and straight. To get it to look anything decent I need to use some kind of curling iron or straightener.


4) MAC Pigments: Need I say more lol They are so shiny and pretty and last forever on your eyes and in the amount you get!


5) Brushes: I have at least a hundred of them if not more. This picture is just a handful of the ones I own and most are not expensive ones but they work just as good to me.

Beauty Hot Weather Staples August 2014 Blog Hop


I am late posting this as I wanted to by noon yesterday BUT my cubicle job got hectic and well. I apologize to the ladies in the FB group who we monthly hold these blog hops with. I have added their links at the bottom for your pleasure. 😀

The theme is Hot Weather Staples and here are mine.

a setting spray to help combat the melting effect you can sometimes get
A great bronzer. In the summer you can go shimmerier but I still prefer Matte. NYC has an inexpensive one that is excellent for lighter skin tones.
bh primer
Eye and Face Primers… Need I say more 😀 This line from BH cosmetics is actually turning out well worth the price.
The summer’s Fab Fit Fun box has all your essentials. Water bottle, chapstick, shaving supplies, and most importantly sun screen! I will have a review of the box later this week.
Get them brows to stay in place. Tarte has a good waterproof brow mousse but so does anastastia and NYX.
Lastly, have some fun with your hair. Go lighter … you don’t have to go drastic like me but add some highlights to give that sun kissed look. No it doesn’t beat the heat but it can make you feel sexier!!

Tip Tuesday: DIY hair mask

Ok this may seem simple but I did this over the weekend and it took my fried way too many times recently hair and made it soft again. I promise!

hair mask

I used these three items but you only need two of them for the mask. I like to add some essential oils for the smell and depending on if there is something you want to treat extra. The Eucalyptus is great for an itchy scalp in my opinion.

The “recipe” I use is three parts oil to one part egg. If you have longer hair you will need more. Right now I have medium to the top of my shoulder blade hair. I use the 3:1 ratio.

3 large tablespoons of the coconut warmed up in the microwave to liquid form. Be careful to not make it too hot or the egg will cook.

Add a large egg and beat them together. They will not completely meld together but will stir nicely.

Then if you want about five or to your liking drops of the essential oil.

Note: work quickly as the coconut oil will harden again and you need it on your hair not in the bowl 😀

Your hair will be crusty and waxy. It’s ok. Leave it on there for as long as you like. I usually do an hour or two around the house. I know some people who wear it overnight.

Then shampoo to rinse out the product. It will take to or three repeats as it does get crusty 😀

Hope this helps anyone’s hair woes and tell me if you tried it and liked it or if there is ways to tweak my recipe.
