Highlights In Your Hair

20140608-073907-27547778.jpg

It’s no wonder what the sun does to your body in summer:
Highlights appear in your hair
Your skin darkens or turns red
More brown spots appear
Some people that I know put lemon juice in their hair to get the same effect as they would if they sat out in the sun all day in summer. The lemons may turn your hair to straw though.
My parents are always the type of parents to say no to changing your body in anyway except by exercising which means I was never allowed to:
Dye my hair
Get a second piercing in my ear
Get colored extensions
Now while some people may not think that these are terrible things to get or do, my parent did. As the older I have gotten the more I see they were right. I see kids my age getting their hair dyed and have it come out awful. Extensions that are neon colored was cute when you were a preteen but at our age, you just look silly. I still want my second piercing but that will have to wait until I’m out of the house. 😉
I love and hate the summer.
☀️ I hate the sun because it only burns my nose which is a very sensitive place to burn.
I love summer because highlights always appear in my hair naturally. I don’t have to go to the salon and have the possibility that they don’t look right.

Fun In The Sun

20140606-121708-44228062.jpg

It’s always fun to play in the sun but sometimes to much of a good thing is not good at all! The threat of cancer nowadays is very high. I have compiled a group of things that I use when I get a sunburn.
1. Noxzema- Noxzema has a cooling agent that cools down enflamed skin. I mainly put this on my face. Many people use this to clean their face so it will help sensitive skin.
2. Clean & Clear Deep Action Clean Cleanser- This product is kind of like Noxzema but I use it in the shower. This product has a less overwhelming smell unlike Noxzema. I also use this even when I don’t have a sunburn.
3. After Burn Gel- This is when you have a burn but on your body. I use this when I don’t want to use a cream that won’t rub in. This gel has a pleasant smell that isn’t overbearing.
4. Aloe After Sun- I use this when my skin is very painful and needs to be soothed. Unlike After Burn, this product contains Aloe Vera which soothes angry skin.
*Do not put these products on open wounds, they will irritate the skin.
We all forget to put sunscreen on or don’t put one on that has enough SPF. These products will lessen the pain. Stay safe this summer!

Empowering Women With Julep

image image image image image

I love Julep nail polishes! They have very bright colors and they look so pretty to bring out people’s skin color.
You’re probably thinking, “People’s skin color? How how can skin color be brought out by nail polish?”.
Have you ever noticed how some people can wear any color and get away with it? There are some people who want a certain color to work for them but it just doesn’t. I have been told that I should wear more pinks and reds. Orange and green would look strange on my nails mainly because of my blonde hair and red cheeks. This summer I want to get some pastel colored nail polish. But come fall I want to get some of these sparkly nail polish from Julep. They also have a cool story about their brand! Two women met each other to become friends and then later partners in the very trendy brand together. A percentage of the sale goes to organizations to help empower women! I love a brand/company with a cause. Nail Polish is a very girly thing and if you can help other women with a product, the better!

ripe Lip Balm

ripe Lip Balm

Etsy has to be my favorite website to buy online things. It is very easy to order things and depending on the seller the product will come in very fast. One of my favorite things to buy is lip balms. I ordered this Red Velvet lip balm from a company called Ripe and I love it! It is mainly made of ecofriendly and recycled materials. If we can save a few things to reuse then I think we should. These lip balms smell amazing as well! The packaging is also very cute! I recommend these as presents or even for yourself!
