I’ll start by saying that my all time favorite season is Summer! Lucky for me, it’s finally here. I know, I know, a lot of you right now are maybe be thinking that I am a crazy woman but I do, I love the heat. I love seeing the bright sunny happy sky shining up above me and feeling the warm, dry heat, on my skin.Read More
If you haven’t already caught on, I am a true glam girl. I love everything that has to do with makeup. Feeling beautiful is really what you make of it, so trying new products to share with you is honestly a plus for me. You’re maybe asking, how so?Read More
Let me start with saying that I am not a morning person. For me, waking up early is an everyday struggle. The worst part is that I typically have puffy eyes in morning. What can I say, it’s my everyday norm. So naturally, finding tools that will help me depuff in the morning and absorb my daily skincare is a tool I look forward to using. Sounds like a life saver! You may be thinking too good to be true? Well I thought the same thing when I came across this jade roller and like always I had to give it a try and share it with you. I am amazed! It’s a dual end tool made out of jade and did I mention it’s super affordable?
So for today’s post I decided to share with you a few ways on how to use this little gem.
This tool generally features a larger stone meant to be used for the cheeks, jaw and forehead areas on your face. The smaller stone is meant for under the eyes and around the mouth area. To use it, you apply a gentle amount of pressure while rolling the tool from the center of your face to an upward/outward motion. This exercise increases circulation. But if you’re looking for an extra boost, look no further! Place your roller in the freezer and take it out when needed. This helps smooth the skin, depuff and help reduce any redness.
As you can see I like to use mine while I hangout at home. It is so soft to the touch and relaxing. It feels like magic!
What is your go to beauty tool?
It never fails. Right when you think, all is going so well, you look into the mirror at your reflection and realize something is different. But like most of us we can’t really put our finger on it. We think to ourselves, what is it? But of course, after a while of pondering in the mirror, you come to realize that your hair is thinning. Maybe a little on the brows, on the hairline or your infamous spot where you part your hair. Ugh, why? Inconvenient, I know.
Today, I decided to share with you how I used castor oil to help with regrowth.
Although you typically find castor oil in the home health section of the store, I find that it is one of those items we all need to be reminded to keep stocked in our medicine cabinet. It is inexpensive, easy to find and can be used in so many ways.
If you haven’t noticed, I am an avid hair side parter and currently unsure when this madness will change. But for such a long time I felt like I’ve had to accept the idea that my side part, was always going to be off. It just didn’t seem as full as it once did.
So one afternoon I decided to pull the castor oil out of my medicine cabinet, grabbed a mascara wand and applied a light application of lukewarm, castor oil. The real trick to this is to massage the area near your scalp, circulating the area. While its natural properties help nourish and repair damaged tissues. It promotes strong and healthy regrowth with a noticeable difference in about two weeks.
Before I knew it, it became my added night time routine. I applied a little castor oil to my side part, hairline and brows. And let's just say with consistency and patience it really made a noticeable difference.

For many this might seem as a surprise, but once upon a time when I was a little girl, I was totally not a fan of makeup. I never understood it. I hated how long I’d take my mom to get ready. I remember watching her carefully applying her eyeshadow and then her lipstick, every morning.Read More
I have always been prone to bruises. Can you say clumsy Kitty? It’s the story of my life, it has never failed, right before a special event, that I’m really excited to wear a beautiful dress or just wanting to show my legs, I get a bruise.

As the weather slowly cools down and the leaves begin to fall and change color, our closets are typically the first to see the immediate shift.
