Boy Band Curls 🙅

boy band curls

The latest ladies hairstyle is driving me crazy! The way that we are curling our hair is what I like to call "Boy Band Curls." Because they twist in One Direction! After the laborious curling process and the stylish shake out, the curls look nice but once they settle, they end up melding into one big curl. It's worse than the Farrah Fawcett. At least the snazzy short layers on that style made it interesting.     It's taken me a while to master to the whole "curling while holding one end of my hair near the scalding hot wand without burning the ever living sh*t out of my fingers" thing. Enduringly I persevered and I've finally got it down. Once I can put my...

You Poor, Pore Thing!

This is I. Extreme close-up. All natural. No makeup, natural light, no filters or retouching (*gasp) and my best RBF (Resting Bitch Face). For the most part, I do alright in the skin department. I have sensitive skin that needs tender loving care. I battle with slight redness and blotchiness, but I am blessed to not have to buck up against dark circles, hyper-pigmentation, or severe breakouts. I take care of myself and believe that great skin starts with proper rest, hydration, and nutrition. As an actress and model, I never know when my next paycheck will come along and I do not like to spend money on facials or any other fancy spa treatments. I keep it simple and inexpensive...

Let’s take them down a notch and file to a nice soft oval...

Fat Girl at Heart: Being Budget Beautiful

Beauty products will always be an important expense that we cannot pluck from our lives completely. Lets look at some ways that we can prolong the life of our favorite products in order to keep our wallets a little fatter. Ca-ching! 1. Longer Lipstick Life. You have gotten to the end of your lipstick, but don’t you dare throw it away! Get yourself to The Container Store, STAT, and get a small round pillbox with a screw off top. Scoop out the remnants of your lipstick with a makeup spatula or the small end of a chopstick. Now you can apply it with a lip brush. You would be surprised just how many applications this will allow. Mix in a little Vaseline and...
