These photos were taken in natural sunlight to show you the true colors of each blush. There are two blush palettes available - one in light and one in dark. I picked up the light palette and I'm so glad I did.

Along with all the million products you can use to keep your hair soft there is one thing that gets over looked a lot .... THE POWER OF A TRIM. How do you know when you need a trim you may ask? I am going to share with you 3 tips to let you know ... it is time!!
1. The first hint is time. The average time you should wait between cuts is 6-8 weeks. I know this seems excessive but think of the damage you put your hair through on a daily. It is important to nip those split ends in the bud before it becomes a bigger problem. If you absolutely have to wait longer I would try not to go longer than 3 months.
2. You have nailed a certain style over the last two years and your hair isn't cooperating. After so long your hair can become a limp noodle. It has been blow dried, flat ironed, curled over and over and it just does not want to work anymore. It can also be from the longer hairs weighing your style down. Either way, it could be a sign you need a cut.
3. When your hair is overwhelming full of split ends. Split ends are detrimental to healthy hair. Split ends mean exactly that. Your hair has "cracked" open and it could split all the way up the hair shaft if it wanted. But the most damaging thing about split ends are the fact that the ends of your hair will break off. Your hair shaft is not as strong when its split into two therefore the probability of your ends breaking off is high. I hear a lot of clients complaining that their hair is "not growing" and it usually is because of this fact.
I hope you enjoyed these tips! Now go get a trim!

The invention of mascara is probably one of the best things to ever happen. Of course behind the obvious, like flushing toilets and electricity. But if I was stranded on a desert island, I wouldn't mind a tube of mascara to keep me company.
Mascara is the one thing that makes me look awake, opens up my eyes, and makes me all around feel more like a woman. Better than Sex Mascara by Too Faced is pretty high up on my all time favorite mascaras. It adds volume and length and the brush isn't rubber which is something I really hate. With one coat of mascara, you will have nice defined lashes. With two coats, lashes that are just thick and luscious. Below you will see pics of my eyeball with no mascara and with varying coats of Better than Sex. At $23 I think this mascara does a great job and holds up pretty well throughout the day.

I'm sure you all know about my profound love for Babyliss by now. I love their tools. I love their flat irons, curling irons, and especially blow dryers! My hair is crazy curly and somehow their tools just work well with my hair. I had been sharing a GHD flat iron with Ashley which I loved as well. But when I got married I needed one of my own. I have owned the lower cost Babyliss irons which don't work as well. If you want a good flat iron with Babyliss you have to pay the big bucks! They usually run around $129.99 which is decent price for a good product! But when you are on a wedding budget you don't have a lot to spare. I came across a black 1 and a 1/2 inch ceramic flat iron from Babyliss at the beauty supply. I'm in LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!!! It works so well with my hair, it was half the cost, and ceramic blades make my hair feel so soft. Which is the point of getting a ceramic flat iron. So if you're in the market and on a lower budget, I definitely recommend this flat iron!
I am a little embarrassed to post this crazy hair photo but I want you to see what I am working with and why I think this iron works so good:
I was on my way out so excuse my parking lot picture for the after but here it is:
Thanks for stopping by loves!
