Say Goodbye To Skinny Jeans YESSSS!!!

This classic and oh-so-chic outfit is open to one of the biggest questions a fashion lover in 2020 can ask themselves… what TYPE of JEANS? If you scroll through any store online or walk into any store IRL, there’s an overwhelming amount of denim options. Skinny, boot cut, flared, tapered, kick-flare, straight leg, mom jean, dad jean, boot cut… the list goes on and on! Read on HERE by my fave blogger Chriselle Lim!

4 Natural Teeth Whitening Options That Really Work!

Teeth whitening is a multi-billion dollar industry, but unfortunately many teeth whitening treatments contain harsh chemicals that can leave teeth feeling sensitive for a long time. I wanted to find natural ways to whiten my teeth that not only worked well, but were also safe. Since chemicals can easily absorb through the sensitive skin in the mouth, I wanted to only use options that were safe enough to eat. Of course, none of these things are a replacement for normal dental care and I asked my dentist before using these (you should too!). I’ve found that these methods work great along side my normal brushing and flossing routine.

Green Tea Bags for Puffy Eyes, Perfect!

Late-night deadlines and environmental toxins can stress the delicate skin around the eyes, causing puffiness and dark circles. A natural remedy that is an alternative to the old cucumber standby is green tea bags. Loaded with antioxidants and plenty of tannins, green tea bags shrink swelling and reduce the fluids around the eyes. Causes Puffiness around the eyes can be caused by lack of sleep, overwork, skin disorders and hypothyroidism. Pregnancy can cause fluid retention and puffiness around the eyes. A high-salt diet also causes fluid retention. Other causes come from toxins through alcohol and tobacco use. Hormonal changes, skin disorders and allergies affect the delicate skin around the eyes. Despite popular belief, lack of sleep, fatigue and staying out late are not the main causes of dark circles under the eyes. Some of the more common causes are allergies, eczema, heredity, smoking, drinking, nasal congestion that dilates and darkens under-eye veins, sun exposure and thinning skin, according to the Mayo Clinic. Treatments Placing brewed tea bags on the eyes for a short time period …

Loving Me Some Jamberry

As a blogger I am often sent things to review and blog about and then there are the times I see something and I’m like “I think I will LOVE that!” and I try it! I had seen Jamberry on the Direct Sales circuit, then met an amazing consultant and jumped in. Signed up, got a kit, can sell it, the whole shebang! I can NOT stress to you how amazing this product is and how much easier it has made my life! Last night I was playing scrabble with my son and putting on my Jamberry nails. You can’t play scrabble with wet nails! Love it! AND I feel prettier. I’d love to share this product with you so if you would like more info, comment and I will send!   Hugs!

Two Fashion Trends That Aren’t Going Away

Two years ago I sincerely thought the tassel thing would pass real quick. I saw it as a real niche style that only certain people would like but I was wrong. I didn’t like tassels at all and now I LOVE! I have some on order from Stella & Dot and I can’t wait for them to arrive. If you have tassel fever, let me know and I’ll hook you up with some pretties! Then there’s the lace up sandal thing. I did that, sort of, in high school in the 80’s and was like the only one at my school wearing them. That look DID NOT take off then the way it is now. Again, another thing that I thought would pass a couple of summers ago. I didn’t get into it and now I am looking for the perfect pair. My online boutique will be open soon and I can NOT wait to stock them! Have you tried either of these fashion statements? Let me know what you think.  

Lovin’ My Hair Care!

Soooo I got super sick in 2016 and was hospitalized. Long story but ANYWAY I lost a lot of hair, and much of what remained broke off and this made me sad. So I went to work right away looking for solutions and what I came up with is kind of a combo. I use this amazing organic shampoo that I get at Sprouts along with a Monat mask and conditioner. Now I do use the Monat shampoo too, I mix it together. I also take a Collagen product from Sprouts for hair skin and nails. Guess what yall? It worked! My hair is coming back fuller and stronger and I’m not having to hide it in a hat or put up all the time. That makes me happy! I can refer you to my Monat rep if you are interested!
