Get Long, Healthy Hair

I love seeing women with long, healthy hair.  Pictured below is one of my besties and I enjoying a concert and here are some of our tips on having strong, healthy hair.

  • Brush/detangle your hair before you hop in the shower.  This will make it easy to comb out after your shower and you'll spread the oils from the root of your hair all over.
  • Use products without sulfate.  Sulfate damages your hair and removes the color.
  • Use hair clips or hair ribbons to put your hair up.  They wont damage your hair like normal hair ties will. 
  • Eat spinach and kale.  They are full of vitamins that speed up hair growth.
  • Get a trim regularly.  Even though your growing out your hair its important to get a trim to take care of split ends.
  • Before you hop in the shower apply coconut oil all over your hair.  You can leave it for a few minutes to half an hour depending on how much time you have.  The results will leave you with shiny, more manageable hair.  Check out what else you can use coconut oil for with some of my previous posts: Cleanse With Coconut OilCocoa Eyebrows and Facial Recipe, and The Best Way To Clean Your Beauty Blender.

Health Tip: Don't wait until it's too late

It's the time of year for sore throats and sniffles.  Grocery store lines are getting longer and more crowded.  Before you get sick head to the grocery store and stock up on juice, vitamin C, and medicine.  One of the worst things is waiting in line to buy your soup and orange juice when your sick.

Plan in advance and pick up your necessities before you get sick.

Make-up Tip: Getting Liquid Liner to Stay Put

Ever try directly using liquid liner to do that sexy cat eye or just your eye liner in general?  It can be extremely messy and any time I attempt it, I'll blink and my eyeliner will be in the crease of my eyelid.  

An easy simple trick is to first line your eyes with a pencil eyeliner.  This will be your guide for whatever look you want to do.  Then apply the liquid liner.  The liquid liner stays put and it looks darker.

XOXO fabulous!!

Stinky Little Miracle

Since my trip overseas this July I have not been able to get my acne under control.  I've been using my clarisonic, expensive cleansers and creams, and have been going to an ethstecian maybe a bit more than I should.  Not only have I been getting hormonal acne once a month, I have been getting painful cystic acne and I can not take it!

Last week was when I remembered that I used manuka oil in college to treat my cystic acne and the results on my skin were phenomenal.  In my town, manuka oil is very hard to come by, so I had to order it from amazon.com.  

Manuka oil comes from the manuka tree which is native to New Zealand.  This oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial and has many benefits.  People use manuka oil for cystic acne, athletes foot, fungus, dandruff, eczema, cuts, sunburns, bug bites, and psoriasis.

Manuka oil works so fast on my cystic acne.  It makes my blemishes smaller and less painful.  The worst part about this oil though is the smell.  If you use this during the day BEWARE!  You will not have any friends and if you snuggle up with a significant other at night, they may start spending their sleep time on the couch and away from you.  I personally don't have a huge problem with the smell but all of my friends and family do so I just wanted to warn you now.

This oil is my stinky little miracle.  It makes my pillow case and bed sheets reek and it is kind of pricey for the little amount you get but it clears my skin up and makes it smooth and radiant.  

$19.80 plus S&H

Perfume that actually does something

As you may know from one of my previous articles, Know How to Shop for Perfume and When to Wear It, DKNY Be Delicious is one of my all time favorite perfumes.  It was the first perfume I ever bought so you could imagine my excitement when I heard of their new product.

This innovative perfume is the first of its kind.  Perfume usually tarnishes our sterling silver jewelry or can stain our clothes but this perfume guarantees to hydrate your skin. That's right, now you can get this delicious green apple scented perfume with amazing skin benefits.  Smelling great and staying fresh and hydrated, can't wait!!  I love when a product offers you multiple benefits.  

For more on perfumes you can read the link above on when and where to wear perfume or go to the mall and have some fun!!

Stay fresh and scented fabulous!

Time to get your laugh on!

Laughing is so good for your health and a workout for your abs.  Health benefits of laughing include boosting your immune system, overall well-being, and relieving stress.  Laughing also releases endorphins, and thanks to Elle Woods we all know what that does for us.

Call a friend or watch a funny movie to get your laugh on.  Tonight, there is no better way to laugh than to watch "fat amy" on her new show.  It is minutes away from the 9:30 pm premiere and my abs are ready for the workout.
