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 »

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,

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 »

Vaseline has no moisturizing qualities. It is a byproduct of gasoline refinery.

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. :-)

These are nice little recipes. Although, I must admit (I am kind of ashamed about it) that I am very lazy when it comes to beauty products and I buy branded products. I was looking for shampoos which replicate recipes like those, and I found interesting products: http://www.hair-recipes.com/. I am from Toronto, this brand (Hair Recipes) is located next to my house. I gave it a try and it seems to be pretty efficient (I have tried their egg conditioner as well). Does anyone else know natural products, which are available on the market, that I could try?

Post image for Road Map Nails Inspired By Roshambo: Paper-Scissors

The third Roshambo video brings us back to where it all began: Paris. The final chapter in the series was filmed throughout the streets of Paris, so this inspired me to try a transfer technique on my nails using a map of the magical city. For something that looks complicated, it’s actually really simple to achieve. You can do this with any map, and it’s fun to pick out certain places that you may have traveled to or special spots that you want to put on your nails. Read more »
