Beauty Basics: Celebrity Perfumes

Reading time: 2 Minutes

I’m winding down for the night! Only two more posts to go after this one! So, I rarely wear perfumes only because they are SO EXPENSIVE! And if you are really going to pay $50-$100+ for a bottle it better smell pretty fantastic! I usually use body spray… or more preferably just deodorant and I’m out the door with my normal skin scent.  However, there are a few perfumes that I DO actually think smell good and I have forked over the money for them especially this first one at least three times now!

Number one: With Love… by Hilary Duff

I have always been a fan of Hilary Duff and I think she released another scent of perfume after this one but I didn’t really like it as much but that could of been a dream… let me go look. Yeah, she did it’s called Wrapped With Love also it’s gone WAY down in price since it first came out… either way I LOVE the scent of With Love and I’ve bought three bottles of these since it came out.  The scent is great, sweet and perfect for nights that need perfume (because you don’t need it every night really now…)

Number two: Fantasy by Britney Spears

I am not even a Britney fan… sorry don’t hate me. I don’t dislike her, I’m just not a fan… I do however LOVE the smell of Fantasy which happened one day as I was walking through Macy’s and someone stopped me to smell it.  I was mildly surprised at how much I really did love the smell of it!

Number three: The last one I only tried because Emma Watson endorsed the product and I love her. The one thing I didn’t know was that I was actually going to fall in love with the perfume too! It has a scent of raspberries, vanilla & rose.  I’m not a huge fan of the way vanilla smells but the other two really brought this one together… plus the packaging is purple and anything that’s purple is really appealing to me.  Although this one I believe is the most expensive out of the three, it’s also probably the one most worth it! You should definitely try it out if you can! What’s your favorite perfume scent? (NOT body spray, perfume.. .you know the expensive kind that you only use out of magazines by rubbing the paper on your skin and hoping if you keep the paper sealed away the smell will last longer but it doesn’t… that kind of perfume), x

Beauty Basics: Kesha’s Infinite Lipcolors ♥

Reading time: 2 Minutes

You might notice I’m blogging A LOT tonight… I decided if I just post one or two of my old posts a day.. that might take me an entire YEAR to catch up with them… So I’m sorry if all these posts bother you but I really want to post them all and get them out of the way.  Instead of posting them one – three per night I figured maybe I’d do all the blogs for one – two MONTHS per night.  Then maybe I’ll be done by the end of February and it will no longer bother me and I will be free to finally create new posts without having my old ones hovering above my head!

This post is brought to you by KESHA and needs to be updated because I own SO many more colors than I used to when it comes to lipstick…. I mean every shade of the rainbow and shades OF shades of shades… of shades of the rainbow 😉 I can’t wait to show you all of them! Until then, I wanted to post this about how my favorite musician Kesha (who has her court date NEXT month since it was unfortunately post-poned earlier this week) can literally rock every color of lipstick effortlessly… AND DOES.

At the time of originally writing this post, like I said I never really experimented with lipstick colors so this “Amber” gold-orange was my favorite.  Since I’ve tried many differents including purple glitter & black (which happens to be one of my ALL time favorites!

I definitely need to do a lipstick palette post with my lipstick colors! Who knew there could be so many shades of just pink and red alone! I own everything from pink ballerina shoes (a VERY light pink) to hot Barbie pink (a VERY PINK pink).  What’s your favorite lipstick color and why? I can’t wait to show you the colors I have now! I have so many… this image below doesn’t even begin to cover it!

You have no idea… How many do you own? x

DIY: Arts & Crafts w/ Maryjane

Reading time: 2 Minutes

Hey everyone! So, I always used to have a little box (most of you do) to keep my sweet sweet herbal medicines in. The guy at my old liquor store would always give me his empty Swisher Sweet boxes (my favorite flavors are Peach ♥ and blueberry.  So one day I decided I wanted to change up the inside a little but I kept the outside because it was one of my favorite flavors.  I simply got one of those duct tapes that have designs (I’ve always been obsessed with zebra and used to have a zebra lighter that was fuzzy until someone stole it… now I have a beautiful little smiley face that says “Legalize It!” and a snowy red christmas themed one) anyways I choose to get zebra to match my lighter and just coated the inside of the plain white box with the tape.  You can literally choose anything you’d like to do it, you can even decorate the tape yourself by gluing glitter or sequins whatever you’d like!

tumblr_m2bsbuF7xe1r0ay4y

After you are done and it’s dried and all finished, add all your goodies and voila! You are more than welcome to continue doing the decorating on the outside of the box as well.  Just remember that if you choose to use glitter it will be very messy and not JUST when you’re making the box when whenever you handle the box too. What do you guys keep your goodies in? I have a different box for my stuff now. It’s a cute little cheetah treasure chest box with fuzzy print on the outside and a little handle that lifts up.  You can also use these for anything you’d like! Jewelry boxes, keepsake boxes and if you go to your local gas station, smoke shop or liquor store and ask for the swisher boxes that are empty they will most likely give them to you for free! I mean… if they try to charge you for an empty box please say no and walk away… I still have my little glass bottle though (it helps with the smell). Thoughts? Ideas? Let me know in the comments below! xo

Product Review: Kimble Bounce Back Curling Revitalizer

Reading time: 4 Minutes

Hey guys! So a few years ago my mom got me this curling revitalizer as a Christmas gift and ever since I haven’t found one that tops it (my next review of a curling revitalizer will be pretty much the opposite of this one).  This one really lives up to it’s name of “Bounce Back” and makes your curls fresh and really bouncy!

eb4a6fca93d211e18cf91231380fd29b_7

It’s a sticky gel.  Almost like hair gel but you apply it after getting out the shower and it works it magic while your hair air drys! That’s it! You just brush it in and it does all the work.

45a980ea511711e1b9f1123138140926_7

This is my curls before I jumped into the shower.  I have naturally curly hair, so this is pretty much what it looks like everyday. Notice how it’s flat at the top by my roots and doesn’t really start to get curly until it passes my ears.  Then the curls are pretty much all over the place and I don’t mean in a good way!

e54b465c8a7811e19dc71231380fe523_7

This is AFTER my hair dried and using the Kimble Bounce Back Curling Revitalizer! The curls start at the roots, they are more spiral shaped, tighter and closer together and go all the way around my head.  I LOVE this product so incredibly much. The way my curls just literally bounce with it is amazing.  I mean I have naturally curly hair so no matter what I do the curls will always be there they don’t “go flat” but they can look disgusting and using this really made them look amazing. I also got two other Kimble products that I didn’t like quite as much.  One was a mint shampoo and I’m not a fan of mint.  When I opened it in the shower, it burned my eyes with the strong small alone… so I’m not saying that I love this product for any reason other than I truly TRULY LOVE IT and have not found anything better to this day.

This product is hard to find in stores.  Usually you can find it at Sally’s or possibly Target if you’re lucky.  But if you don’t feel like going on a hunting trip, you can always order it online.  Becareful of which product you are getting.  They appear to have MANY different ones under the exact same brand and same name but are different types of liquid texture. They also have changed the look of the bottle since I got mine (pictured above) so there are a few different looks that you might find when looking for it.  Mine (above), the newer-older version (below)…

kimble-beauty-bounce-back-curl-revitalizer-560x560_2

OR these newer bottles of it rather than a squeeze bottle it’s in a pump.  And these below are the ones I was talking about being careful when selecting the RIGHT product.

SBS-055100

This one seems right because it’s the Bounce Back Curl in “Curl Cream” form, but it’s NOT the one I tried.SBS-055101

This is the RIGHT one.  It’s the Curling Revitalizer not Curl Cream. (I have not tried the curl cream, but would love to if I ever get my hands on some!)

SBS-055102

This last one is a Curl Enhancer and also says Bounce Back Curl on it.  So just remember that you’re looking for the Revitalizer, not cream, not enhancer but the bottles seem to look similar.  You can buy it in the Sally’s Beauty Supply store in person or online.  I’ve also seen it at Target & JcPenney once.  If you are interested in trying the other two they are listed in the online store above in the side where it lists similar products.  The revitalizer seems to be the most expensive of the three, listed at $15.99 while the others are $13.99 and $12.99 respectfully. Have you guys ever tried this out? Do you want to? Let me know your trials below! x

Yum, Yum, Yum: Chobani Simply 100 Crunch

Reading time: 3 Minutes

As most of you know, I’m working on eating a more balanced diet, and have been setting up meals that have all of the food groups.  I’ve been sitting around and binge eating sweets it’s causing a lot of health issues for myself including my asthma!  So I’ve been working on eating more nutritious meals and balancing my diet to include all food groups each time I eat as well as being more active! My pals over at Chobani Yogurt took an interest in my healthy way of eating a nutritional balanced diet, and wanted to encourage me AND my followers to do the same!

Chobani is releasing some new Simply 100 CRUNCH flavors for the new year, that are the same great tasting yogurts, but each of them only contains 100 calories, and are packed with a CRUNCH! The new flavors include Blueberry Cookie Crumble, Strawberry Chocolate Truffle, and Mango Cone Crisp.

crunch-product-stc

I have decided in addition to eating healthier at each meal, that I’m going to start doing my favorite thing again – running while listening to music.  Not everyone loves to be active, so Chobani has offered a variety of fun ways that you can loose 100 calories which makes eating their new yogurt flavors or any of the flavors in their Simply 100 lineup virtually ZERO calories!

chobani_100cal_12version (1)

Aren’t these just the cutest activities? Everyone (well… mostly everyone) loves yoga! Your dog DOES need that walk you’ve been putting off, ice skating isn’t going to last forever! It’s going to be spring soon so grab those skates!  I love how their poster is purple! Just want to throw that out there!

So stay healthy this year by grabbing a snack – any of Chobani’s Simply 100 or Simply 100 Crunch flavors (I recommend the Strawberry Chocolate Truffle (mmm, so good!) pick your favorite activity and enjoy this ZERO calorie snack. You can now (for a limited time only) enjoy $1 off your favorite yogurt by heading to their The Light’s That’s Right website and printing out a coupon (this is a DIFFERENT website than their regular site).  Tell me which activity you choose, which yogurt flavor out of the Simply 100 Crunch flavors turns out to be your favorite, and why you choose them to be healthy!

Photo Diary: The Style of My Sister’s Wedding

Reading time: 1 Minute

Hey crazies, these photos are from a while ago back when my sister got married to her husband.  They are adorable & i LOVE her styling for it.  She wore red Converse All-Stars down the aisle the entire time and never even had a pair of heels.  Not to mention her top hat! So this is my photo diary from backstage at the wedding and the fitting of the dress the week or so before the wedding.

Also I have some great news! I will be getting a new DSLR camera at the beginning of next month! It’s on it’s way which is super exciting to me! I can start to document my daily outfits and basically everything else again!

I do believe she made the top hat herself using a hat from the dollar store! Shes always been super crafty and stylish with no effort. What do you think of her dress / outfit? x

How To Style: Kushy Foot Socks & Flats

Reading time: 1 Minute

Hey guys! Sorry for my lack of blogging.  I haven’t been feeling too well and even had to go to urgent care last night! But I do have some amazing new photos to share with you 🙂 First things first, I must pronounce my love for “KushyFoot” products!  First things first, these socks are really comfortable and thick giving you top quality socks!  The bottom of the socks have GRIPS or “ripples” on them which is one of my all time favorite features for these products!

img_3795

The thickness of the socks really helps during the winter months, because they really do keep you warm!

_MG_9991

_MG_9993

I have the socks in all sizes including tights! One thing I’m also in love with is their “Flats To Go” because they are really compact and fold up inside their little carrying case which comes with them!
img_3796

I love to slip these on when I’m in a hurry or just to run outside real fast and grab the mail or when I have to wear heels to an event and want to grab some flats to wear during downtime! These are absolutely perfect & my go – to flats because of their compatibility.  They also come in multiple styles (mine are the Alligator print).

_MG_0056

_MG_0103

Another reason to love these socks is the high elasticity in them so they stay up really well vs constantly falling down and needing to be pulled up! I definitely recommend KushyFoot products to everyone! And the great thing is, is that you can get them online or in any drug store! Have you guys ever tried KushyFoot products? They really do live up to their name and if you haven’t you should definitely try them out! xo
