Pampered

23 Feb

I treated myself to a nice long soak in the tub tonight. I put a glass of whole milk in the water along with the petals of several dried flowers. The milk leaves skin feeling silky smooth and the roses are a great perfume and set the mood for relaxation perfectly.

There’s something so decadent about being able to put life on hold for an hour or so just to relax and pamper yourself.

What’s your favorite way to get pampered?

Scarf Wrapped Big Bun

4 Feb

This bun is super easy. I first saw it on a website called Total Beauty.

I found the directions a bit confusing but since I’m so smart (and I went to beauty school) I figured out how to do it on my own. Here’s the original:

Here’s my version:

And before I put the scarf on it looked like this:

And here’s how to get the look.

1. Put your hair in a pony tail.
2. Tease a one inch section of hair from the pony tail.
3. Take the freshly teased hair, wrap it around two fingers away from the center of the pony tail and fasten loop to smoothed hair with a bobbypin.
4. Repeat steps two and three till you’ve formed the entire bun. Pull hair in the bun to cover any holes in the bun and fasten a scarf carefully around your hair for a final touch.

If you’re worried about the scarf coming loose or shifting throughout the day you can always use some more bobbypins to hold it in place.

I like to dress up. 🙂 I used to be really uncomfortable picking outfits and trying to match things. Now I like all the accessories that I think make the outfit.

Boots: Mia, purchased on Overstock.com | Socks: CJs | Tights: Don’t Remember | Shorts: Forever 21 (they’re from my first ever post!) | Top: Charlotte Russe | Sweater: Forever 21 | Necklace: Brighton | Tam: Don’t Remember

Kindergarten

4 Jan

If anyone saw my tweet this morning, I was in desperate need of a haircut, and I got one… I really can’t decide if I like the bangs or not. Maybe they’ll grow on me, but right now, I kinda feel like I’m in kindergarten again. 😛

I Got a Package!

3 Dec

I got a package today! I’ve been waiting for it for over a week now. What was in it, you may ask? Well, do you remember the post I made about ELF makeup a while back?

I ordered some on Black Friday and it finally arrived. I’ll be writing a review for Yahoo! And will post it here once it’s published. 🙂

So far though, I am very pleased. I got a lot of makeup for the price I paid, and not just because it was Black Friday.
