Post image for What’s On My Beauty Shelf?

A girl loves to have a beauty shelf in her bathroom, a little place where she keeps things that she likes to pamper herself with. I’ve always liked the simple things when it comes to beauty.  I’m a little scared of makeup and have never been all that good at applying it either. Read more »

mason jars (i purchased a bunch at Walmart.. SHHh.. hate shopping there!) make perfect spot to hold q-tips, odds and ends, hair ties & bracelets! I also love mixing them in with old antique bottles and perfume bottles with a single little flower! OoOO and finding them washed up ashore along the bay is always a treasure. thanks for the cool post FP

I swear by Lush tea tree water toner. I live in Florida and have oily skin, and this stuff saves my life. Also, as goofy as it may sound, I only recently discovered the magical powers of tinted moisturizer. The only makeup I use is Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, nars the multiple on my eyes and cheeks, and mascara. I thank the lovely girls on downton abbey for inspiring my makeup-lite look!

Post image for Pastel Shades And Pretty Braids

Light hair decorated in pastel tones is a look we love, softly twisted into sweet braids. The colors are subtle and dreamlike – My Little Pony comes to mind. We’re huge fans of colored hair here at Free People, whether its dip dye, streaks or full color. So when we saw a lot of inspiration tears showing pastel-colored hair twisted into braids, we fell more in love. Read more »

love all of the fall colors from Essie. We will be wearing the oxblood color and dark greens and blue. We've also been wearing a lot of matte colors with glam details like our shattered glass mani below: http://foxandgypsy.blogspot.com/2012/09/shattered.html

I have "miss fancy pants" by Essie and I adore it! The color is neutral but not boring. It suites my personality which probably explains why I have it on so frequently! Loving dark & seductive for fall.

Post image for Make Your Own Purifying Face Mask With Natural Bentonite Clay

Every time I hear about a new beauty ingredient, I just have to try it – especially when it requires me to concoct a mixture before applying it to my skin. There’s just something about making my own beauty products from natural ingredients that always leaves me with such a good feeling – inside and out! Read more »

Amy -Nov 24, 2013, 4:12PM
Id leave out the oatmeal
Alison -Aug 15, 2013, 2:34PM
I use a similar recipe but only with pure bentonite clay, not calcium bentonite, which has had calcium added to make it easier to mix. Pure bentonite is how it occurs in nature, and if you are adding things like oatmeal, vinegar, lemon juice, essential oils, etc., you will not have trouble mixing it anyway. Bentonite should not be exposed to metal or plastic on an ongoing basis, but I don't have any problem using a clean, dry metal spoon to measure the powdered clay out of the glass jar in which I keep it. Plastic spoons have their own issues (BPAs, phthalates, etc.) so make the choice that works best for you.

Can you show a tutorial on how you do the messy bun with the 2 elastics and a high pony where you join the ends into the first one? It's all over the internet but no tutorial to show how it's done. And the instructions are not clear. Thank you,Melinda
