Happy August to my Fellow Bloggers and lovely Blog Readers! Here is a really simple recipe for Frozen Yogurt that also doubles as a Frozen Fruit Parfait! It’s a great way to indulge without feeling guilty or to have a healthy snack on-the-go. This easy recipe can be adjusted to your liking. It will keep you cool during the summer while making sure you look hot.
Happy Fall! Today I will be doing a compare and contrast of two different Lashblast Mascaras. I would like to start off by saying that these are topnotch drugstore mascaras. They go for about $7 each and they are perfect for everyday use.
First off, I want to say that absolutely adore this scent. I picked up these items at my local Bath & Body Works toward the beginning of this month and I’ve enjoyed them a lot. I usually go for the sweeter, more fruity scents—but vanilla is my guilty pleasure. This has become my go-to perfume.
Today I will be showing you two fall outfits that I put together. They are very simple on the surface, but can easily be accentuated with the right makeup and jewelry.
With football season in full swing, this chic yet sporty ensemble is sure to make your man fall head over heels. I chose a varsity-style jacket, a long sleeve black shirt, a checkered skater skirt, and Doc Martens. Of course, the jacket may not be necessary depending on where you live. The boots can be replaced with booties or heels. Get Docs for around $100 on Amazon here. Many stores that used to sell skirts similar to this one don’t sell them anymore. Thankfully, this outfit can be easily adjusted and many different skirts can replace this one.
Nude nail polishes have gradually become some of the most popular nail polishes out there. They are almost as essential as matte lipsticks. Nude nails look sleek, elegant, and professional. It goes with any outfit, any time of year. Recently I picked up this shade from my local drugstore. It took me a while to figure out which nude nail shade I wanted to buy because I had never bought one before. Eventually, I settled on “Elegant” because it seemed to flatter my skin tone.
As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, we may forget to take the opportunity to wear lighter jackets and cute thin sweaters. As I picked this outfit, I thought about those wonderful 60-70 degree days. I know it may still be too hot to wear this depending on where you live, but here is some outfit inspiration for the near future.
Here I present to you a versatile treat: a light leather moto jacket, a flowy black tank, ripped medium wash skinny jeans, and statement heels. These thrown together make for a perfectly-balanced autumn ensemble.
The leaves are starting to change color and the air is getting a little cooler. With sweater weather just around the corner, we need to remember to keep our lips hydrated. Fall and Winter lipstick shades come in a large variety of types and colors, and today I’ll be sharing my favorites.
Reds are an absolute essential for any season. During the Fall and Winter, darker, more captivating reds come into play.
In the past, I’ve used regular Bioré Pore Cleansing Strips on days when I feel that I should look my best. I never really thought that they were the most effective product on the market, but they made me feel as though that my face was really clean, and that is a very satisfying feeling. Over the summer, I tried the Japanese Charcoal Mask. I’ve read fantastic reviews on this product, so I was very excited to use it and see the results for myself. More recently, I received a package in the mail with the Bioré Charcoal Strips. In this post, I will review all three products and tell you which one is worth your time and money.

The makeup you wear every day has to be subtle. It can’t damage your face and it can’t take very long to apply. Unless you’re an absolute pro, you probably can’t afford to do full face makeup when you’re running late to work. Here are the products I use when I’m in a rush and don’t want to look as though I’ve just rolled out of bed. This post is also a tutorial, so the products are in order of which I recommend using first.
Brow Pencil, Brush, and/or Gel. I use the ColourPop Bro Pencil. It’s just $5. I absolutely love Coloupop and I definitely recommend this product. It is a subtle and very gentle pencil to fill in your brows. It also has an eyebrow brush on the other end of it. Buy it here for just $5. You can also use a small amount of brow gel if you’re worried about your eyebrows staying in place. Continue reading “Everyday Makeup Look Using Affordable Products”→
Going back to school or getting back into your groove at work can be a very exciting time of year, but also a potentially difficult transitional period. Wearing clothes you look and feel good in can make a big impact on how well you handle the changes that come your way. Here are a bunch of outfits you can wear no matter what your style is. Most of them are very minimalistic and plain with statement pieces. This is generally very stylish in today’s society. Wearing something cute has never been easier!
1. The Casual Cutie
This outfit is very easy to pull off. Light Wash Jeans and a Striped Shirt are essential pieces in any girl’s wardrobe. Adding colorful jewelry makes the outfit stand out in a crowd.
Hair Masks are helpful in making your hair grow, look healthy, and to stop your hair from getting frizzy. We all have different needs when it comes to keeping our hair looking its best. Here are 7 all-natural hair masks.
To make these hair masks, you will need to mix all of the ingredients into a paste and massage the mixture into your scalp (I suggest starting from the top and working your way down). Keep in mind that for curly hair the results will take longer to see because curly hair grows slower. Before applying any mask, brush tangles out of your hair to yield the best results. After massaging the mask into your hair, cover your hair with a shower cap and let the mask set for at least 30 minutes. Finally, wash your hair with whatever products you usually use. Use masks once to twice a week for the best results. Continue reading “How to grow your hair FAST for under $15”→
It’s Summer. It’s warm, you’re in a good mood, and you have some free time on your hands, so it feels natural to want to paint your nails. Although you might love feeling like a risk-taker when you put on your neon orange nail paint, you soon come to realize that it doesn’t match with any of your clothes. In an attempt to stay away from basic whites, blacks, and nudes, I vowed to find myself a color that was summery, beautiful, and matched with many of my outfits. I found that wonderful shade when I put on the OPI Puerto Vallarta Violeta.
Happy One Month of Blogging to Me! Yesterday was August 10th, which means that one month ago I sat on my laptop and began writing my first blog post. Since then I’ve changed this blog an incredible amount and I’ve learned so much. I want to thank all of my amazing followers for helping me to fall in love with blogging each and every day.
I’ve heard of so many ways people are fundraising for different causes: from t-shirts,ribbons, and advertised websites to school fundraisers and spirit weeks, there are so many creative ways to support a cause you’re passionate about. Why not show your support in style? While on a retreat, I noticed a booth of beautiful, beaded bracelets. Continue reading “A Beautiful Bracelet with a Cause”→
Here are some Tips & Tricks for beautiful, white teeth in just 2 minutes. I’ve tried quite a few of these recipes and they work incredibly quickly. After brushing your teeth just once you will notice a difference in the color of your teeth. By using these mixes regularly, your teeth will stay healthy and you’ll never have to worry about having yellow teeth again! You can add these ingredients to your normal toothpaste if you are worried about the taste of the mixtures.
Hydrogen Peroxide + Baking Soda is a well-known mixture for teeth whitening—but there is another great ingredient to add: Lemon Juice! The natural exfoliant adds a powerful reactant to the solution and creates a fizz that is sure to leave your teeth dazzling.

I suggest only making as much as you’ll need for about a week because this solution becomes less effective with each passing day.
