Having just bleached my hair to lighten it, I am now obsessing over how to rehab it ASAP. Split ends and dry hair drive me crazy. So you can imagine that every time I look at my ends, feel my hair or look in the mirror and notice how dry my hair is, I start to twitch. At this point, “it is what it is”. There is nothing I can do about my hair other than start to bring it back to health. I have been doing the usual hair treatments every week. I have been using coconut oil every week as well. I have also tried to not heat style my hair more than once a week.
From time to time I become obsessed with changing my hair color. I blame the magazines for this obsession, as every page has a beautiful golden blonde or golden brunette that simply cries out my name. The problem with this obsession of mine is the fact that I have jet-black hair and going from black to anything light is simply not a simple task. I have done this a couple times already. This won’t be my first time delving into the unknown of hair lightening. I have gone from black to brown, black to blonde; only to go right back to black.
Two things I am absolutely obsessed with are face treatments and roses, combine these two and I am in heaven. This is why I couldn’t wait to try the Fresh Rose Face Mask. Fresh makes a couple rose-infused products that I have definitely had to purchase, and they are all amazing! I expected nothing less than pure bliss with this mask, as most of their products do deliver results.
If there is one thing many of us just love, it’s a good DIY beauty tip. The idea that I can skip the salon or spa and do something in the comfort of my own home is simply too good to pass up. Lately, one of the hottest DIY trends has us going to the grocery store and stocking up on lemons. Yes, lemons have multiple uses beyond the kitchen. Today I am going to share some of my favorite DYI Beauty routines using lemons. These are fun, effective and affordable!
Father’s DaY is this weekend and many of us mothers are running about looking for the perfect gift for that special man that has a special place in our child’s’ heart. The strange thing about Father’s Day is that unlike Mother’s Day, it really doesn’t get the same amount of popularity, the commotion is a lot less for this day. Why is this? Well maybe because we mothers simply like to be showered with gifts while fathers tend to be more laid back and just want to have a day out with the family. Maybe this could simply be because everyone sees the mother as the main caretaker of the child?
For those of you who do not have the time or the money to spend at the salon getting a keratin treatment, no fear! There is an easy way to get the same results as you would at the salon in the comfort of your own home for a fraction of the cost. The best way to get smooth hair at home is to use, Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Express Blow Out. This is a keratin treatment that will not last as long as the keratin you get at the salon, but it will offer the same results for a fraction of the price and time. Keratin Complex Express Blowout lasts from 3-6 weeks. It offers you the same results as a keratin treatment; smoother hair, more manageability, enhanced shine and frizz control. You can wash your hair as early as 8 hours after having the treatment, and total time for application is an hour.
Memorial Day weekend is here and many of us parents are wondering what to do with the kids. When you have kids, it all of a sudden becomes a little more difficult to plan because now you have to take their schedules into consideration, especially if they are younger. Once they become teens it’s much easier as they just go with the flow (that is when they are not too busy with their own plans).
If you are joining the organic bandwagon that many of us are, then there is definitely one thing on your mind! Finding the best natural skin care products is a must for yourself and your children if you are interested in taking on a new more organic routine. The good news is that these days, the options for natural skin care, natural hair care and natural makeup are increasing, making it easier for us to stay beautiful and healthy all at once.
The bad news? Well, you may have to leave some of your trusty and favorite brands that are more luxurious, but less organic behind. Yes, girls this means saying goodbye to your favorite YSL night cream or deliciously smelling Kerastase shampoo. However, there truly is no need to fret! The options for finding the best natural skin care products are also quite glamorous, just not as glitzy.
There has been a lot of talk lately about the importance of Vitamin D. It is a vitamin that helps us maintain our bone strength and helps elevate your moods. These are two pretty important factors, so it is quite easy to see why there is so much discussion in regards to maintaining your vitamin D levels normal and even more so about how to get vitamin D.
For years we have heard that the best way to get vitamin D is through sun exposure. Yes, we all know that a little sun is very healthy for us. It elevates our mood, gets us out in the fresh air, and usually gets us involved in a little activity, which is a win-win all around. However, it can also be damaging to our skin, therefore sunbathing every day to get your daily dose of vitamin D may not be the best choice.
Ok, so about a month ago I went for my usual botox injections and decided to try lip fillers for the first time. This was a truly bold decision as I have heard they are extremely painful and was terrified that my lips would end up looking crazy like a duck.
So after about four hours of numbing cream all over my face, I took the dive and went for the lip fillers. I didn’t want to look like Angelina Jolie, as much as I love her I think that would be too much for me. All I wanted was a little more fullness, something barely noticeable but noticeable at the same time. Yes, my doctor does hate me!
