My Experience With Purple Shampoo Drugstore VS Salon Quality

Hey Everyone! I never knew purple shampoos existed until I began seeing articles, and vloggers discussing the perils of having blonde hair turn brassy. Well being a brunette made me ignore a lot of those articles, and video blogs up until I had my hair dyed ‘balayage’. My hair became significantly lighter, and blonder (that my family began calling me ‘blondie’..

Stick On Eyebrow Wigs? Human Hair??? WTF

Hey everyone! I know I enjoy going on a good ol hiatus every now and then, but see I always manage to return at some point to bring you back something to muse over. Now tonights post was inspired by a new beauty fad that I can’t get over. I just don’t understand it. This might just be the one of those beauty trends that manages to make me laugh, and creep me out simultaneously.

13 Anti-Aging Tips & Tricks To Looking Youthful

Let’s be honest here we all will age and we all will get wrinkles at some point in our life; However what this post is about is making sure you don’t age prematurely, or look older than your actual age! As women (and even some men!!) we have the tendency to be beauty obsessed. From almost every which way we look there’s something that pops out at us and screams ‘beauty’, or you must try or have this product! Just look at your YouTube subscriptions I’m sure the majority of you have your favorite beauty Guru, and I know that at some point these beauty gurus have mentioned in their videos about anti-aging products and tips that you couldn’t resist watching! I think it’s safe to say that most of us want to look as if we found the fountain of youth as we age. I also know that a lot us want to age well so that we don’t have our peers exclaim ‘oh she’s aged badly’… Well, at least I don’t! #notsorryformyvainconfession. Anyways here are some …

How To Fix Broken Beauty Products

Hey everyone! This is a short & sweet post that includes a few beauty hacks that could help you out! I was reading through H&M life under the beauty section and came across beauty hacks that can fix your makeup products. I know I’ve dropped my blush and powders more times than I can count, and I thought these tips featured on H&M Life could be useful to you- if you’ve got powder/blush broken into what seems like billions of pieces, or your lipstick is cracked in half, or maybe your nail polish is being stubborn and won’t open! (like using a lighter to fuse the lipstick back together, or placing nail polish into a bowl of water)

I Balayaged My Hair & The Results Are…..

Hello lovelies. It wasn’t all that long ago when I dedicated a post to 11 tips for restoring your hairs health before colouring/bleaching. I thought I was going to wait one more month, or two before committing to Bayalage, but I couldn’t stop thinking about having a new colour to rock on my head for the warmer weather. It was time for a change! I love that hair is our greatest, natural accessory that we can change with ease. We can change the colour, style, cut, add extensions to alter length, or enhance volume- which I know a lot of you, (myself included) can’t live without volume. & if we don’t feel like changing our hair with something a little more permanent/drastic, there’s always wigs.

11 Tips For Restoring Hair Health Before You Colour

Privet Everyone! Currently I’m in the process of healing my hair because I want to have it balayaged for the summer time. I know it’s barely April, and we’ve hardly enjoyed the spring, and here I am making plans in advance for the summer. Plans for my hair. I always browse through instagram for inspiration, and ideas for what I’d love to try out next for my hair. I always see girls with that long, lustrous hair that shines even after they’ve bleached it; often seen on Guy Tangs pages, or wherever else! I also hear people complain about how damaging bleach is to their hair! And that they come out of the hair dressers with this dull looking hair, that is completely fried and well trashed. This is something I don’t want for my hair, or for anyone elses. Our hair is a source of pride, and just by having your hair coloured, or styled a certain way it can truly transform your look. 

Lipsticks You Need On Your Lips Now

2016 is the year of the lip and as much as I hate to say this name (I’m trying to keep my blog a Kardashians/ Jenner free zone for the most part) but Kylie Jenner inspired pouts are still in. It seems like the media just loves to throw out the name “Kylie Jenner” whenever a new celebrity is seen with fuller lips/injections. The latest example: Hailey Baldwin now has “Kylie Jenner level huge lips”.  Gone are the days of throwing out Angelina Jolie’s name whenever an enlarged lip is spotted! Lips are one of the facial features that can draw someone in, like your significant other.

16 Tips To A Better Wax With Sugaring

Waxing is something that I don’t take lightly. I want the hair gone, while saying goodbye to the itchy legs that often accompany shaving. Let’s just say that I enjoy the freedom away from the razor every chance I get. Recently I discovered a new wax on one of my trips to the grocery store, one that said it’s a sugar formula. I’ve heard of sugaring before, as one of my friends does this all the time. It’s something her entire family swears by, and they usually make it at home. But I thought my first experience with sugaring shouldn’t be a DIY project, just yet. So I picked up the box with it’s contents and took it home.

Makeup Must Haves For The Girl Who Watches Too Many Beauty Vlogs

I’ve never been that girl who owned a lot of makeup, or put on a full face each day. Moisturizers, and other skin care products have always been my main priority, then makeup would follow. My usual face routine just involves a little concealer to my under eyes, and any little red spots. I then set my face with a subtle amount of powder, and a swipe of pink blush. For eyes, I use a bright, light reflecting eye shadow over the lid, and a hint of a dark brown shadow in the crease to give my eyes more dimension. Plus that swipe of mascara . As for lips chap stick is my HG, and sometimes a bold lipstick.
