How to Cut Your Own Split Ends

When I was in a salon full time, my clients would ask me how they could extend the wear of their haircut. I would give them shampoo, conditioner, and hair product recommendations, but the trick that they seemed to be most excited about was when I would teach them how to cut your own split ends.

Cutting your own split ends isn’t as scary as it sounds. You aren’t changing your haircut in any way and you aren’t even taking length off of your hair. You are simply cutting the split ends off of your hair, in order to keep your hair healthy and let you go a few extra weeks between haircuts. Let’s face it, most people drag the weeks between haircuts anyway, so why not have the tools you need to keep your hair healthy between them rather than getting to the cosmetologist with hair that is totally destroyed from split ends.

Cutting my own split ends is really my biggest secret to having healthy, beautiful hair! And guess what? It isn’t hard to do at all! In fact, it is easy enough that any of you can do it! All you need is a comb and a pair of scissors. [Read more…]

We’re headed to Disneyland next month and we’re getting everything prepped and ready to go!

Headache Relieving Bath Bomb Recipe

Headaches can totally ruin a day. I am lucky enough not to get them very often but when I do, it instantly makes everything a lot harder. One thing I have found that really helps my headaches is a nice, warm bath. I have created bath bombs that are made with oils that help with allergy relief and sinus relief, so why not one that is made with oils made to help with headache relief? I tried it and it is such a soothing blend!

This bath bomb is in no way medicine for your headache.  Take medicine for your headache! This bath bomb is just going to help you relax and aide your head to continue to feel better. [Read more…]

How to Make a Shirt With Many Types of Vinyl: 100 Day of School Shirt

It was the 100 day of school recently and we had to make a shirt with 100 of something on it. When I talked with my kindergartner, she instantly knew she wanted 100 hearts on her shirt! Instead of cutting and gluing 100 hearts on a shirt, I wanted to make a shirt that she could wear again and again… without totally wasting a shirt.

Poop Emoji Hairstyle for Crazy Hair Day

If your kids are anything like my daughter, they are probably obsessed with all things emoji! We have emoji stickers, pencils, keychains, etc. They are slowly taking over the house! That is why, when it came time to creating the perfect Crazy Hair Day hairstyle, we knew there was basically only one real option… a POOP EMOJI!

This hairstyle was a huge hit! There wasn’t anyone else in the school with the same hairstyle and she absolutely loved it. I don’t think there is more we could have asked for! I think one of my favorite parts though, was just how easy this hairstyle was to make. We weren’t slaving away, putting hundreds of elastics or braids all over her head. This hairstyle was simple, just the way we like it!

Glam Fall Makeup Look

I love making my makeup a little more moody as the seasons change. After a summer full of light and airy makeup, I am ready to bring on the rich colors of Fall. This glam Fall makeup look can easily be worn as an everyday look if it is paired with a little less dramatic lip color and looks fantastic for a night out with an even more dramatic lip color! I love how regal it feels, without being over the top and difficult to recreate.

When I do my makeup like this and really try to focus on my eye makeup, it is important that I wear contacts. I have experienced doing my makeup in the past, only to have to wear my glasses and it just kind of takes away the effect! I find my ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses just as important in my beauty routine as my actual beauty products. I have absolutely loved these ACUVUE®  VITA® Brand Contact lenses that were so highly recommended to me during my Target Optical® visit.

To create this eye makeup look, I used one eyeshadow palette with many neutral options. I love having a palette like this because I can find every color I need in one place. I also used a liquid eyeliner pen and volumizing mascara. [Read more…]

Layered Vinyl Christmas Tree

I absolutely love making my own Christmas decor. Mostly because I have a hard time finding Christmas decor that I absolutely love in the store! One way that I always enjoy making decor is with vinyl. I heard a quote that I sort of liked, but it was a little too cheesy for my taste, so I changed it a bit. My saying is, “Laugh, Play, Jingle all the Way”. I love how this fun Christmas tree turned out with this little phrase on it. I have plans of making shirts for my girls with this same phrase on it!
