DIY bracelets

13 Aug

Feeling a little crafty today and caught this cute DIY bracelet idea off Pinterest… what a simple, fun project! Just take some old bangles (or you can find cheap ones at the store) and some colored string, glue one end of the string to the bangle and wrap the rest around, adding some tiny charms and pendants to give it a little something special!

Ooh La La (Lacquers!)

13 Jul

Next Friday I have my first show as a vendor…I am selling some of my hand made nail lacquer that I make and sell online.  (The name of the line is LaLa Lacquers and is found on http://etsy.com/shop/LaLaLacquers  ) . I managed to get in the “lab” this week and produce a good amount of polishes to bring along.  Here are some (not so great) photos of a few of the color samples, all of which will be made available for sale on Etsy:

 

 

NEW! Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray…out tommorow!

24 Jun

Just when our high-tech makeup setting  sprays were getting a little lonely on the shelf, our product development team  had the brilliant idea to create an antioxidant-rich prep spray. In an exclusive  partnership with Skindinavia, UD launches B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep  Spray. This scientifically advanced formula contains the first stabilized form  of vitamin B6, which absorbs oil, minimizes pores and reduces redness. Spritz it  on any time of day to hydrate, prep and soften your skin with vitamins and  antioxidants. Use it in the morning to prep and wake up your skin, during the  day to refresh your skin (without messing up your makeup), or at night before  your treatment. Versatile enough for people of all ages and skin types, men  included, this energizing formula is great for your skin and it feels amazing.  The more you use it, the better the results.”-UD

Super exciting! I will be purchasing and reviewing…. 🙂

DIY: coconut and flower hair oil treatment and a pineapple foot rub

16 Jun

               

Coconut oil and flower hair oil treatment:

(This will need to be prepared the night before you plan to use it)

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh flower petals
  • 2 tablespoons rose water

Directions:

  1. Bring the 1/2 cup of coconut oil to a boil in a small pan
  2. Add the rose water
  3. Add the fresh flower petals of your choice
  4. Let return to a boil for three minutes
  5. Let the flowers steep in the oil overnight
  6. In the morning, strain the oil through a coffee filter or cheesecloth into an airtight container
  7. When ready to oil your hair, rub a few tablespoons in your hair and wrap tight in a towel
  8. Let sit for about 20 minutes, then shampoo and rinse as normal

Pineapple Foot Rub

This one is easy as pie:

  • Take 1 cup of fresh pineapple and puree in a food processor
  • Take the pineapple mixture and spread and rub all over feet including your heels and around your nails (you may feel a tingle)
  • After 10 minutes rinse off with warm water and pat dry
