My Top 4 Go-to Perfumes

Hey guys! Liking the changes? You know you do, because you wove me! But anyways, today’s blog post is going to be talking about 4 of my FAV perfumes! Before we get started, I’d just like to say that Bath and Body Works has already classified me, by my favorite scents, as ( what they call ) ‘ warm and cozy ‘. No explaining what that means! Let’s get started!

Perfume #1 Pink Sugar : Words cannot BEGIN to describe how much I love this perfume!!! Some of you may recognize this perfume from Bethany Mota’s video, Fall Morning Routine. I LOVE HER SOOOO MUCH!!!!! She’s awesome. Had to get that fangirl out of me. I’m sure some of you just had that moment too. Anyways, I love Pink Sugar because of the sweet smell and how girly it makes me feel, if I can get any more girly.

Perfume #2 Wild Berry from simplepleasures : I don’t know if any of you guys have heard of this, but it’s one of my favorites. If we’re being honest here, I did get this at the Dollar Store. Yep, and I’m proud! But the funny thing is, it actually lasts a whole lot longer than I though it would! Miracle! I love it because it smells like a basket of fresh berries. Heaven in a basket! Now, on to the next one!

Perfume #3 Beautiful Day : Speaking ( once again ) of Bath and Body Works. Beautiful Day smells a little like some granny smith apples. I know that that itself sounds a little weird, but it does! The whole scent is like happiness had attached itself to your body. *sniffs air* Smells niiiice….

Perfume #4 Egyptian cotton : Cleo Petra may have been a motive for this scent. Not kidding! Okay, maybe just a little… I love this perfume because it has that fresh smell. I love it!!! It’s like you just soaked and showered in fresh picked cotton! So fresh and so clean, clean =) .

Well that’s all for today, guys! I have many many more favorite perfumes, but if I told you all of them, It’d be enough to go on forever and ever. Most likely there wouldn’t be enough room. But, let me know in the comments what your favorite perfumes are! I hope you have a wonderful day! Be sure to subscribe, I’ll talk to you guys soon, BYE!!!

Strange Reasons You Break Out

Hey guys! I have just one minor thing to say about the time that I will be posting. From now on ( been saying this often =p ), I’ll be posting at 5 : 00 pm. Just getting that out of the way! Anyways, today’s post is going to be 4 really surprising things that makes our faces a pimple’s vacation home. Sounds pretty good, right? Let’s get started!

#1 YOUR PHONE!!! : dun, Dun, DUUNNN! Yep, you heard it hear, folks. Your cell phone is a sneaky little traitor when it comes to being near your face! How often does your cell phone get a little cleanse? If not very often, you will end up seeing pimples near your cheeks and/or anywhere near the area where you hold your phone at. Your phone actually picks up a lot of bacteria and dirt from your hands, your purse or bag, any sort of counter, etc. Then, when you are talking on your phone, it all transfers to your face. The best way to avoid this is to, of course, wipe your screen with an antibacterial wipe often to get rid of all those nasty things off your phone’s screen.

#2 Your Pillowcase : If you don’t change your pillowcase often enough ( The Weekend could sing my blog post =p ), you could end up with pimples also. Your pillowcase is usually covered in sweat and dirt from your hair, hands and build up from the products that you use on your face at night, which can really clog up your pores, too. That’s why you should change that pillowcase! The pillowcase can be the receptionist at the pimple hotel!

#3 LACK OF SLEEP!!! : Oh yeah, it’s definitely time to hit the CLEAN pillowcase earlier! Studying til you drop or having a movie marathon with junk food at 2 am is not good for your skin, whatsoever. You may as well ask the zits to join you! When you’re not sleeping as much as you should, your hormones get out of whack and increase your body’s stress levels. That can cause breakouts, because you know that stress has a pretty high rep for causing pimples. Eight hours of sleep should guarantee you to look and feel your best.

#4 POPPING YOUR PIMPLES! : DON’T POP YOUR PIMPLES!!! This needs to be written on a billboard! Squeezing a pimple might seem like it’s helping, but trust me,, honey, it’s not even close. That’s temporary. The more the pimple gets popped, the longer it lasts on your face! And if your hands are dirty, game over, it gets worse. That’s just adding bacteria and dirt to your face, which slows down the healing process and can cause more pimples to appear. As you should already know, picking at the pimple can also cause redness and scars o your face. Instead of trying to pick at and pop the pimple, try an acne treatment that has salicylic acid.

Well that’s all for today, guys! Let me know what you think of these tips! Did they surprise you? Did you know about these tips? Did they help you out? Anyways, Don’t forget to subscribe, I post every Monday, Friday, and Saturday! I’ll hope you have or had a wonderful day, I’ll talk to you guys soon, BYE!!!

DIY Saturday!!!

Hey guys! Today’s DIY Saturday is going to be teaching you guys how to make your own Snow Cone lip balm. This pick is also on ToniEllison’s YouTube channel. I’ve really been loving her DIYs lately, as you can probably tell. Well, let’s get started!

You’ll need :

– Printable Sno – Cone Template from this website :

http://www.toniellison.blogspot.com/2014/12/diy-sno-cone-lip-gloss-peppermint-lip.html

– Bead Containers from this website :

http://www.joann.com/bead-storage-container-w-30-small-cylinder-boxes/9035866.html#q=bead+container&start=29

– Hot Glue

– Hot Glue Gun

– Mold Putty from this website :

http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/mod-putty-698290/

– Resin, from this website

http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/8-ounce-easycast-casting-epoxy-840645/

– Sea Salt

– Food Coloring

– Popsicle Sticks

– Plastic Cups ( for mixing )

Step 1 : We are going to start with making a dome. Take 2 parts of silicone mold putty and mix them together. Take a dome  shape made out of polymer clay, and wrap the mold around it. Then let it set for 25 minutes.

Step 2 : Mix equal parts of resin, very well, with the Popsicle stick.

Step 3 : Take a little chunky, hard sea salt and coat it with not to much resin. Then add 1 DROP ( Not 2, that will be AWFUL=( ) into the mixture. Be sure that you didn’t just do one cup of one color ( unless you wanted to ), be sure that you did different cups with the same steps, just different colors.

Step 4 : Put the mixture( s ) in little lines inside of the mold ( dome ).

Step 5 : Gently press in a bead container.

Step 6 : BTW, Toni recommended that you make the card stock printables 2.5 tall inches from top to bottom so that the bead container will fit. Now, make sure that you’ve measured the cup, made the shape, and glued it.

Step 7 : Put the cone in the cup and put in the hot glue to brace it.

Step 8 : After that cooled, laminate it with some tape to the outside of the cone to protect it and make in shiny. Then cut the tape at the top, that’s over the actual snow cone part.

Step 9 : For the lip gloss recipe, use 1 tablespoon of beeswax to 2 tablespoons of oil. Then one tablespoon of castor oil and one tablespoon of almond oil. After that drop in a few drops of peppermint essential oil and a little bit of honey, also. Then melt it in the microwave, and used a dropper to fill up the container. When you’re done with filling up the container, put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

Random Thursday!!!

Hey guys! For today’s Random Thursday, I’ll be teaching you guys some really quick beauty tips that you can use at home. Let’s get started!

Tip #1 : This one is for the girls who want longer, curved eyelashes. Basically, my twins out there! Beauty experts suggest that you, what they call, “warm” your eyelashes with a hairdryer for 5 – 8 seconds before you apply your mascara. Also, when you use the hairdryer, make sure that it’s not too close to your eyelashes, so that they don’t burn them off. When I heard about this little beauty hack, I was like, ” WHAT? How is this possible? “. But, I tested it out and the results were pretty good. Bravo, hairdryer!

Tip #2 : This one is for the anti oily skin club. To prevent this one, use an ice cube on your face until it melts. Make sure that this is added to your nightly routine because your supposed to do this every night. Doing this will leave you with a clean and refresh your complexion everyday. HALLELUJAH!!!

Tip #3 : Does your eyeliner crash and leave marks wherever you used it? Well, this tip is for you! To avoid this problem, put your eyeliner in the fridge for 15 minutes anytime before you use it. By doing this, it will also be easier to use! This tip is heavenly!!!

Tip #4 : SUUUGAARR! YES PLEEAASE!!! Sugar is not just sweet, it also is an AMAZE lip softener. There’s nothing sweeter! To have a clean complexion and softer lips, mix some sugar with some olive oil and knead it onto the wet skin. MIRACLE WORKER!!!

Tip #5 : Want a softer complexion? Green tea can help with that! It’s full of antioxidants and a miracle for complexion irritations. Be sure that you rinse your face with green tea. It’s the best method for obtaining a softer complexion.

Tip Tuesday!!!

Hey guys, I haven’t been posting because I’ve been traveling, but I’m posting today! It might be a little early but, hey, getting back on the road! That was just a quick update on me. Today’s Tip Tuesday is going to be just some really random but helpful tips. There will be about 10 of them, so, let’s get started!

Tip #1 – ALWAYS do minimal amounts of makeup during the summer!

Tip #2 – Use some extra eye cream on your cuticles. The more hydrated your cuticles are, the stronger your nails will become.

Tip #3 – Wear some white eyeliner in your water line to make your eyes appear to be less red ( this one is a pretty well – known tip, but it’s an INSANELY good one =) ) .

Tip #4 –  Make sure, when applying stuff to your lips, that you put a shimmery color towards the center of your lips to attract more light to them and make them seem pouty. I got this tip from Katrina Barrion, who is one of my FAV makeup artists.

Tip #5 – For your skin to be an acne free zone, find a cleanser with salycilic acid or benzoyl peroxide.

Tip #6 – When it comes to picking out the right red lipstick, if you have a warmer undertone then go with a warmer red. If you have a cooler undertone, go with a cooler red.

Tip #7 – During the summer months, the last thing you want is to be caked down in foundation. Instead, use a tinted moisturizer or BB cream.

Tip #8 – To get rid of a zit, DO NOT pick at it, the bacteria that’s on your fingers will create a lot more redness. Also, any sort of attempt to pop the zit will make things worse and if you do pop it, you’ll end up with a nasty scar ( T – Swift reference, anyone? ) Get along you Starbucks lovers!

Tip #9 – ALWAYS wash your makeup off before you go to sleep! I do this WAY too many times! It’s not fun to wake up with that morning after look.

Tip #10 – ALWAYS use a moisturizr with SPF in the mornings. ESPECIALLY in the winter.

DIY Saturday!!!

Hey guys! Once again, sorry for not posting for the past few days. I’ve been pretty busy =) . So, today’s DIY Saturday pick is… Bethany Mota’s water bottle chandelier! Let’s get started!

You’ll need:

– Some water bottles ( of course ! )

– A few wire hangers

– Spray paint

– Scissors

– Any kind of fishing string or a regular wire

Step 1 : Take all the wrappers off of the water bottles. Be sure to get as much of the wrapper off as you can =) . If there’s a little water in your water bottle, drink it! If it’s not your water bottle and there’s water in it, pour it out.

Step 2 : Now, you should cut the water bottles in half. Then take your scissors and cut little strips up to the top. Also, be sure to do the same with the bottom half of the bottles, and cut a little hole at the top so that it can be similar to the top half.

Step 3 : Flatten down the little petals ( the strips ), because they’re sticking upwards and they should be flattened down to resemble a flower.

Step 4 : Go OUTSIDE and spray paint theses babies. When you’re doing this, be sure to have a paper tower or do it on a table so you don’t paint the grass. Also, you can get creative doing this. You can do an ombre effect, or a rainbow, etc. Let them dry.

Step 5 : Take the wire hangers and bend them into a wide circle. and if you have any extra wire, you may cut it off.

Step 6 : Take the actual wires and wire two sides of each flower. You want to make sure that you have some extra wire to wrap it around the ring of the top halves.

Step 7 : Now with the excess wire, take it and wrap it around the hanger circle to keep the flowers in place.

Step 8 : Take some more of the wire and wrap two parts of it around the biggest ring you made and take the smaller ring you made and take each wire and attach it to the smaller one.

Step 9 : Lastly, take some ribbon and tie it to the top part of the chandelier ( the smaller part ). Then tie all the ribbon together into a bow or whatever you feel like doing.

Well that’s all for today, guys! Be sure to leave a comment and give this blog a thumbs UP. I’ll talk to you guys soon, BYE!!!
