With the temperature rising this time of year, I feel like closing my eyes and drifting away to a tropical island…these island inspired nails are pretty awesome!

Urban Decay LIPS!

9 Jul

Sorry to all my loyal followers as I have been M.I.A. lately…I have been busy getting ready for a show where I sell a bunch of nail polishes that I hand create, along with setting up my new Eco-friendly Green cleaning business, tending to a sick husband, registering full time at the college here while finishing a degree at another, and, well, just being pregnant!  I promise to post as often as I can!

So, here’s my newest find: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

It comes in 22 hydrating, long-lasting, creamy, super pigmented shades: (shown here with coordinating lip liners)

Penny Pincher: DIY Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment

14 Mar

Image

Ever have a deep conditioning treatment done at a salon?  I used to get one every time I visited for a shampoo and haircut.  Always left my hair feeling silky smooth, but also left my pocket pretty empty..and considering my hair is super long, it was always an extra charge.  So I started looking for recipes  for deep conditioning treatments…and found and awesome one that they use at The Broot (which is a hair treatment bar that uses organic products instead of chemicals.)  The treatment there is about $35 a pop if I’m not mistaken.  Well, you can make your own version at home with a few simple natural products!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/4 cup mayonaise
  • 1/2 an avacado
  • 2 oz water
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Just mix these ingredients and apply to your hair…leave on for 20 minutes or so…shampoo and rinse and you’re done! Beautiful, hydrated hair!

Enjoy!
