Thanks for sharing this! I'm completely new to doing my own nail art that doesn't look like my 5-year-old niece did it for me (not that she doesn't do a beautiful job). I would never have known where to start or what to buy. - Alison { }

They always bring out their sexy style with the help of different stockings that expel their leg beauty to the world. Every stockings price, which provides a extraordinary look, is incomparably less in price when compared to the normal costumes that you purchase from costume shops. Buying online can be a lot more comfortable shopping from your own home.

Post image for Dip Dye Hair And Why We Love It!

To coincide with our Wash Shop this week we thought we’d show you some color-washed hairstyles we love lately. Dip dying your hair has been a running trend for quite some time now, and the look has us hooked every time we see it. Dipping strands of your hair into colors gives a magical/fantasy look… like you’ve stepped into a make believe world for a while and had some magic poured on you.Read More

Post image for Aloe Plant Uses and Benefits

Update: This post originally ran on June 21 2012, but we wanted to share it again as summer winds down, and also because aloe is something you can use in your beauty routine all year round!

Aloe plants have a number of uses and benefits, and aloe is definitely something I like having around the house, especially in the summer time months. Read More

Use for nightly instead of soap for preventing wrinkles on face and also puncture a Vit E capsule (d-alpha tocopherol) to use around eyes.
Tamara -Sep 10, 2014, 8:43AM
To use the clear gel in the center...what is the easiest way to cut the stalk open to get the most use out of it ( length or width wise) and what do you do if you don't use it all at once? Can you store the leftover gel in frig for a short time or must you use the whole piece that you cut at the time of cutting the plant? And from most of the post...Is it an understanding that the plant can live just fine indoors in little ligthing and outside in morning & afternoon full sun?

I made mine with coconut oil, sugar, and a bit of food coloring to make it look even more edible. I bet putting cinnamon would also do great things, since it could help making the lips plumper.
Faith -Dec 04, 2014, 10:35PM
I made something like this a while ago with lemon and coconut - peppermint sounds wonderful! Some people on my gift list will definitely be getting some of this:) Thanks for the inspiration!

Post image for Free People Girls Get Creative With Hair Accessories

I’ve always loved trying out unique and creative styles with my hair – one of my elementary school teachers used to call me “Do Girl” because, even at the tender age of 8, I was rockin’ a different ‘do every day. Welp, 16 years later I’m still doing weird things with my hair. Sometimes my ideas end up looking awesome and sometimes people ask me if I’m “seriously going out in public like that.” But who cares! Experimenting with hair accessories is so much fun – and there is plenty of opportunity to do it in ways that haven’t been done before. Here’s how some Free People girls played with hair accessories this week!
