Post image for Top 3 Nail Trends For Fall 2013

One of my favorite parts about entering a new season is how the shift in weather brings about a shift in our moods, and how that mood shift then translates to a change in colors in our wardrobe, hair, and makeup. Read more »

Post image for Staying Natural: 10 Ingredients To Avoid In Beauty Products

I have always been a beauty product fiend. I find it really fun to try out all different skin, hair, and makeup products to see how they make me feel, and I’m constantly on a search for that one miracle product that will change my life (ha). As I’ve gotten slightly wiser over the past few years, though, I’ve learned that there are so many products out there that do way more harm than good. Read more »

Post image for Hair Inspiration: A Touch Of Grunge

When I get creative with my hair, one of my favorite things to do is to incorporate a piece of fabric or a scarf into the style. Since the trend on our homepage this week is Girl Gone Grunge, I re-visited this technique, but this time using a piece of flannel fabric to add in a touch of grunge. Using the fabric to wrap around braids or tie in your hair is a different way to do something creative with your hair and it’s so simple to do! Read more »

This summer I discovered Vita Coco, i'm hooked. Riding my bike around the city in the heat, nothing makes me feel better. And their coco cafe gets me to work after a long night of drinking, (whoops)
Drew -Sep 13, 2013, 8:51AM
Hey Jenni, you're wrong (or drunk). Dr Pepper Snapple Group is a beverage distributor that handles distro for some independent companies like Vita Coco. They do not own Vita Coco nor are Vita Coco products GMO. Go to sleep.

Post image for DIY Berry Lip Stain

We all know that berries stain. For clothing, this can be an unfortunate thing… but when it comes to beauty, it’s quite the opposite. Berries can be used to make a simple and effective lip stain that’s completely natural and tastes incredible! Read more »

Shweta -Sep 29, 2014, 5:38PM
Can a solidified version of this be also used for cheeks?
Jacquelyn -Oct 08, 2013, 1:08AM
so the mixture comes out liquid right? could this same idea be tried with beeswax to make a berry lip balm?

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 »

This is really nice way to get pure Aloe juice from Aloevera Plant.

Thanks for the tip it is very inexpensive and has so much benefits. Just rub it on your skin or use as leave in conditioner for your hair.

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 »

Maci -Oct 06, 2014, 1:14PM
I like to use Palmers cocoa butter hand cream on my nails every morning and night. It makes them shiny and after I do this for about two weeks my nails look like I just polished them with clear polish, and they are super long and pretty, and nail polish lasts way longer than it used to. :) I will definitely try some of the methods listed above! :)
Jem -Sep 05, 2014, 1:03AM
In the past I have found that a blend of beeswax and almond oil applied every night to the nails and cuticles worked wonders for my nails. It took about 3 months to see a difference, but it was worth it.
