Have problems with TANGLES in the morning?


I don’t know about you but I toss a lot in my sleep which causes my hair to look like the photo above every morning. And it is really painful to try to come it out! Even if I get into the shower to just wet it, it’s still nappy and tangled after I get out and just makes things more difficult. Well, I tried something new last night that I thought I’d share with you guys if you have this problem!

I used my friend Argan oil (its by One n’ only) I put it at the ends of my hair and mixed a little into my whole head and put a shower cap on and went to bed. I woke up with the shower cap missing lol but I went to comb out my hair and I had no tangles my hair was nice and smooth and easy to manage. This is such a simple trick but it really works and it might work well for people with really curly hair too!

E.L.F Tinted Moisturizer complete REVIEW

I love pretty much everything from elf cosmetics. I recently tried out for the most of the summer! So I wanted to give my complete review for you guys.This moisturizer is part of their studio line.


ELF Tinted Moisturizer in the color “Nude”

I am a tan/olive colored skin tone so I decided to pick up the shade in “nude”

The packaging: I love the way elf designed the packaging, it almost looks just like Smashbox! It looks really nice like it costs a good amount of money. I like how it is a tube and you can easily squeeze out the right amount you need. It does tend to get a little messy though if you aren’t careful.

The coverage/consistency: So this tinted moisturizer has a light coverage but it is a bit build-able. I don’t build mine because it is a little darker than my normal skin and it can make my face look kinda scary, lol. The consistency is great because it’s a creamy texture like mouse and it feels great on the face. It spreads around evenly, the only thing is once I set it with powder it is fine but then when I am out in the sun for awhile it gets on my clothes and it gets on my cell phone…and then it comes really greasy. I think they should make an oil free one.

The benefits: This has a SPF 20 which is GREAT for protecting your skin, along with aloe and vitamins A,C,& E, and cucumber which are GREAT for the skin. So, those are some awesome benefits that come from this product.

The price: Who can beat only $3? Yeah, it is very inexpensive and is pretty good for what you get. I would really suggest these product for people with dry skin and not oily or combo skin.

Overall: I would give it a C+ because I wish it stayed on my face better and wasn’t so greasy. The coverage is light but I mean it is a tinted moisturizer. I love how creamy it is just wish it wasn’t so oily.

Garlic top coat – for STRONGER, healthier nails!

I guess this is an old remedy that people have used and noticed amazing results. Garlic has so many amazing good stuff in it, and putting some of it in your top coat can really help the health of your nails.

All you have to do is take about 2 cloves of garlic and mash it up or minced garlic and drop it into your top coat and let it sit in there for atleast 3 days and then start using it on your nails! Great for healthy looking nails, some say it evens helps growth!

Are you into the rose gold?

If you don’t know rose gold is hugely IN right now, a huge fashion stable to have in your closet…whether that is a watch, bracelet, shoes, purse etc. It has become so popular that everyone is wearing it everywhere. The hugest piece of jewelry that is really popular is a rose gold Michael Kors watch…it seems like everyone has that watch…I totally want it too! lol. But rose gold I think looks great on all skin types and looks more feminine than regular gold. See for yourself!

My favorite DailyLook outfits!

Hey everyone, so here are some photos I pulled from Dailylook.com that are my FAV! They have amazing looks and styles that they put together that to me are just the cutest styles ever. If you don’t know what Dailylook is, basically it is a website that has sales everyday starting at 8:00am, and there is designer clothes, shoes, bags, etc and you take a style quiz to get 3 looks sent to you. You can look at the whole outfit that is modeled then you can chose to buy the whole outfit or just bits and pieces of the outfit. It is free to join and there is no obligation to buy, it is not like a monthly subscription. Just like an online store fitting your style and a way less price.

How to: Sock bun!

This trend is huge right now…and it is all over Pinterest which is where I found this picture. It’s a really easy and simple way to make the sock bun. I tried doing it and didn’t work well lol because my hair is like above my shoulders and too thin it didn’t work. But if you have medium to thick hair it should work well for you.
