Leave it all on the dance floor~

November 27, 2011


The occasional booty shaking and fist pumping on the dance floor is great. But that’s where the shaking and pumping should stay… on the dance floor. If you shake your nail polish and/or pump your mascara, you may want to reconsider. Nail polish: Shaking the bottle will create air bubbles within the polish making it […]

Nail biter…

November 18, 2011


It was in  junior high when I decided that enough was enough. I made the conscious decision to stop biting my nails. Why you ask? Was it because I finally realized how gross, disgusting, unsanitary, and ugly it was? Nope. Those reasons weren’t enough… I wanted to wear the sheer pink nail polish by hello […]

“Pretty and shiny”

November 10, 2011


Last night, I was at a red light rocking out to some Justin Timberlake when all of a sudden, my car lunges forward. I look in my rear view mirror just in time to make out the “f” word come out of the driver’s mouth. I’ve been rear ended. I get out of the car […]

Hairspray Your Lashes!~

November 9, 2011


Don’t you ever wish you could hairspray your lashes to hold the curl? If you curl then apply mascara- the wetness of the mascara takes the curl away. If you curl after mascara- You’re left with sticky lashes and an eyelash curler that’s covered in mascara. Either way, it’s not a good situation. While we […]

Don’t Wash… Just Powder Your Hair!

November 8, 2011


Washing your hair daily will dry out your hair, scalp, and cause static especially during the cold winter months. While I know it’s not advised to wash my hair everyday… how could I not?! After just one day, I’m left with clumpy, flat, and oily hair. Gross! So I set out on a mission to […]

November 1, 2011

The PA rating system is used to indicate the UVA protection. The PA rating system ranges from +(least) to +++(most). There is no UVA protection […]
