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 »

Great post! It's scary to think about the number of chemicals that are in the products we put on our skin every single day. Did you know that while the European Union bans more than 1,300 ingredients, the US only bans 11??! This is why I switched to Beautycounter... check it out! nicolesunderland.beautycounter.com

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)

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.

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 »

Mix gel into your cleansing cream and use instead of soap to clean face in the evening. I have always gotten compliments because my face is wrinkle free though I am a senior ! Also d-tocopherol around eyes,

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 »

I have to disagree on a few things. Vaseline is a petroleum based product and not good for use on the body at all. It is a known carcenogen. (spelling) I find that Coconut Oil is the best and is one of the few oils that can enter the skin and hair and repair. The MCT fatty acids are awesome. That on my skin and nails help, but when I began drinking infused water with Tumeric, Cayenne, Ginger and Cinnamin my nails grew faster than ever before and stopped breaking and splitting. They grew so fast it was insane. I would add a little coconut oil to my drink infusion and it aided my body in assimilating the benefits of the infused water. When I researched the vitamin and trace minerals provided by each of these spices I was surprised. They addressed a potential deficiency which brittle nails is. When you address possible/potential vitamin and mineral deficiencies it will resolve so many issues outside of what you are even initially using them for.
