Great advice! Make sure you're taking steps to protect your hair while out in the sun and water this coming weekend!

Uh... I so did not know that exfoliating helps you tan better. I mean, it totally makes sense when you think about it, but I still feel mindblown. I am going to be in sunny Atlanta this weekend, so I am going to make sure I exfoliate the heck out of my skin! http://smellthetoffee.com http://lamentinglizzie.blogspot.com

Post image for Makeup Inspiration: Blue Belle

We are all about the color blue this week, with our latest lookbook, Blue Belle. It got us thinking about the color blue, and how we would wear blue makeup.  Brightly colored makeup can be tricky — we like it done in subtle ways, with little other makeup.  We came up with three looks we love — one with blue liner, one with blue eyeshadow, and for the last we got a little creative with a blue eye pencil.

Post image for How To Make Aloe Water

Aloe has long been known for its benefits on the outside the body, from soothing sunburn to treating acne and even promoting hair growth (see our post on aloe plant uses & benefits). What’s lesser known, though, is that aloe may have incredible effects when taken internally, as well! Read more »

Amazing post! I have been using aloe Vera juice from long time for internal cleaning. No doubt it is the best natural remedy full of nutrients! You can also try out herbal Aloe Vera Supplements that give you quick result.

Post image for How To Strengthen Your Nails

No matter how many vitamins I take, my fingernails always seem to break so easily.  It makes it nearly impossible to ever grow them, plus it can be painful when they catch on things and tear.  Read more »

Can coconut oil help your nails grow as Well?

A glass nail file smoothes nail edges so the nail does not catch and snag.

Post image for Secret Hand Massage Trick

I don’t get real manicures often, but when I do, the hand massage is always the best part. We use our hands all day, every day, and it’s very necessary to give them a little attention every now and then. The hand massages I’ve gotten at nail salons are all very similar – and there’s one part that always feels the best. Read more »

Another interesting tip is to try to not vocalize the words. Screen Reading software is easily installed and will talk you through the installation with very little fuss. Basically, these programs send your subconscious messages of positive intent.

Post image for What ARE Antioxidants?

These days, it’s all about getting that antioxidant fix. Blueberries are filled with them, different types of beans are packed with them, and now lots of beauty products have them, too. For years I’ve known that antioxidants are good for me, but the other day it suddenly dawned on me: I have no idea what an antioxidant is.

Actually, free radicals are more accurately defined as this: "Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of antioxidants." Free radicals themselves are not cells but can eventually form irregular cells. Also @paperstarz , the idea of telomeres being responsible for aging has shown little positive experimental backing. It does sound like a good idea, but sadly it doesn't answer a lot of questions. Yay science! Source: . N.p.. Web. 11 Nov 2013. .
Courtney -Nov 11, 2013, 4:08PM
I love this article! These damaging free radicals are missing an electron, and antioxidants donate an electron to these cells to stop the production of these free radicals! Antioxidants are very much needed in the diet, but you also have to be careful, because ingesting too much antioxidant (like people who take too high of doses of vitamin E) is linked to heart disease. So make sure you get your antioxidants! But be careful to not overindulge :-)

Post image for Bobby Pins Reinvented

Bobby pins are always something I seem to find laying around, but never really think to use since my hair routine on a day-to-day basis is pretty basic. They’re such a common hair accessory — half the time you never really know when people are wearing them because they are generally meant to be hidden, pinning back loose hairs or securing a style. For this post, I wanted to try using bobby pins in a different way — having them visible!  Here are three easy ways to reinvent the bobby pin. Read more »

Being a manufacturer of bobbypins in India, I just love these designs have been created. Please do visit our blog Saimanbobbypinsindia.blogspot.com and also watch the SAIMAN Strong Bobbypins Video Test, to check the strength of bobbypins, because feel that the consumer deserves a certain degree of quality, which is not prevalent with manufacturers nowadays. But am trying to that difference, because I love this industry so much and very close to my heart. Thanks. :-)

Hi, Loved your list of options. check out some of my recommendations below: http://www.frizzyhairhq.com/best-shampoo-for-frizzy-hair/

How do I love Google? Let me counteth the ways: 3. Researching senator and representatives' email addresses. 2. Signing action alerts for all things unfair and dastardly. 1. Finding pearls amongst swine like you! This is the first summer (age, 46) that my hair is untame-ably frizzie. Self-esteem wreckingly, untame-able. It could be all the pollution, (petroleum based exhaust, fertilizer salts, mercury from coal burning oil plants) suspended in the humidity of the southern air (which is very early this year...), but whatever the cause it is making me feel like I am 12 all over again, at a dance, with my glasses in my white 80's lace, high collared confirmation dress ( really? mom? you couldn't sport me a dress for a boy's school DANCE?) I don't even really leave the house! I feel this way ALONE! Anyway... I think you get the drift! I am trying the AVC tonight because of Meg's ringlet comment! That is what I have under all this frizz! Oooh. While I am here! Do you have a natural Wen-like (cleansing conditioner shampoo) shampoo recipe? Regular shampoo dries my hair like a tree frog in the desert. Meow!
