Obsessed with Made From Earth's Cucumber Gel - It refreshes the areas around my eye -- and I have also seen a significant decrease in puffiness,dark circles, and those dreaded fine lines (which makes this product an all-around must-have for me!). If you are in need of a new eye cream or just looking to spice things up definitely give it a try!

Thanks for sharing, that's so cute. What do you think is the best hair mask for hair breakage and split ends? It's something I get asked quite often from my own blog's readers, and I would love to know what you might think of it.

Hello! Is it okay if I use olive oil and banana as a moisturizing hair treatment? If yes, how much of each and is it as effective as almond oil and banana?? Thank You

Post image for Which Perfume Matches Your Personality?

I love when people have a signature scent.  Sometimes it is their perfume or cologne, or sometimes it’s a mixture of their laundry detergent and soap, or other times it’s the aroma of their home that they carry with them.  You begin to associate them with that scent, and you could be miles and miles away from them but you catch a whiff of it and it makes you think of them.  It tugs at your heart, brings back memories, can make you feel happy or at ease…scent is such a powerful thing.

I got mostly a's but I love the woody scents too
Sarah -Jan 30, 2014, 1:44PM
I could go with either a's or b's in all of them which was amazing because I do love the citrusy scents with hints of the romantically sweet. I never go a day without my Nina by Nina Ricci. It's the perfect mix for me.

Post image for Chopstick Hairstyles

Chopsticks have always been a good alternative to a hair tie when you want to quickly throw your hair up but need something to secure it with. With the recent October catalog being shot in Tokyo, we’ve really been inspired by Japanese culture and wanted to show some other ways to incorporate chopsticks into the hair. From hand painted sticks to the classic criss-cross method, here are some easy and creative ways we love using chopsticks in the hair!Read More

The topknot and braids in the 2nd picture look just like those of the Chinese terra cotta warriors.

Post image for Beauty Trick: Broken Eye Shadow Quick Fix

Update: This post originally ran on July 25, 2013, but we love this beauty trick and wanted to make sure that you all had a chance to see it!

Cracked eye shadow is such a bummer. So many times I’ve gotten my hands on a color I love, used it a bit, thrown it in my bag, and then all of a sudden it’s ruined! I try to salvage as much of it as I can, but it just ends up getting everywhere. This got me thinking… there has to be a way to correct this mistake without buying an entirely new eye shadow. And there is. Read More

Post image for FP Girls Share Their Curly Hair Secrets

Update: This post originally ran August 8, 2013, but we wanted to bring it back for any of you curly-haired beauties who may have missed it!

We often get requests from readers for us to do beauty posts that focus on curly hair. Those with natural curls know that curly hair behaves much differently than other types, and must be treated accordingly! To get some insiders tips on the matter, I looked no further than the curly-haired beauties right here in our home office.

I really appreciate the "flip your hair over" trick. Mixed Chicks has a new redefining foam/mousse that I can do that with in the morning. It's not at Target stores yet, but I did get it at their website: Keep the blogs coming!
Jackie -May 30, 2015, 6:57PM
I would suggest blow drying your hair with a low setting and avoid the high/really hot settings. A diffuser is a must when it comes to curly hair..... any hair dryer will do as long as it comes with a diffuser. You can find more info on hair dryers for those with curly hair here Oils are also great for adding shine and lustre while controlling frizzies and flayways. Moroccan oil is my fave (but pricey).

Post image for 5 Ways To Moisturize Your Lips This Fall

As much as I love the cool weather that rolls in with fall, this is when our skin starts to get dry and chapped – especially the lips. I have very sensitive skin, so I have always struggled with chapped lips this time of year. Whether it is from dehydration, allergies, or weather, nobody likes to have that annoying flaky skin or the pain that comes with it. As we enter this season, I wanted to share some natural remedies to keep your lips hydrated.Read More

Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

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

Brittany -Oct 19, 2013, 12:12PM
I tried all of these ideas and mixed up the colors and I LOVE it!!

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

Nicole's Beautycounter -Jan 05, 2015, 9:27PM
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!
adamsjones -Jan 04, 2015, 10:08AM
Thanks for your kind information.Above all of these iq natural organics products is very harmful to human body such as skin,hair above all these ingredients to avoid beauty products.

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
