Alright ladies, I know we’ve all got them somewhere…maybe deep in our closets or under our beds…you either gotta get rid of them or find a way to make use of them…those old jeans that are collecting dust that is! In my case it was a pair of old jeans turned cutoff shorts that I found stuffed in the back of my closet. Go figure. Well I was about to toss them out when I remember this old trick my teacher taught me in my 9th grade sewing class. You take an old pair of jeans (or in my case shorts that are long enough), rip out the inseams and then reconstruct the pants into an adorable handcrafted denim skirt! You can even customize it with fabric markers, dyes and paints or even patches! The possibilities are virtually endless. I included the steps below.
This one is for the LUSH fanatics, also known as, my fellow LUSHies out there! I wanted to share one of my favorite daily hair and body regimes I use with three of their delectable products, but first I wanted to share with those of you who aren’t familiar with LUSH Cosmetics why exactly we love them so much.
Hello lovelies! Is it just me, or is the weather getting chillier and chillier as of late? Layering clothes is a must in the cold seasons, but layering nail art techniques to add color, depth and dimension to your nails is also a must try this season. This look may seem time consuming and difficult, but it’s not! You can even do your chores or whatever else you need to get done while your nail designs are drying on parchment paper! I’ve included step by step instructions for this technique below the picture.
This unique scent is citrusy, spicy and totally worth the splurge at LUSH! Hands down one of my most coveted scents and the self proclaimed “signature scent” of LUSH.
Who says you have to wait until February 14th to get romantic? If you’re feeling like a romantic splurge, give your honey a sweet preview of whats to come this Valentine’s day by cuddling up in the tub together. This soya milk infused bomb will leave you and your love’s skin feeling soft and silky while the aromatic aphrodisiacs of jasmine and ylang ylang will linger on you as well. “Sex Bomb” from LUSH is a tried and true staple in my stockpile, as well as on the shelves of LUSH stores worldwide. At $6.95 a pop, I’d definitely have to call this a splurge. Totes worth it of course! And since it’s nearing V-Day and all you might want to stock up on a couple or a few because this balls of sexiness are addicting – believe me!
Hi beauties! Today I was inspired to do my makeup by the scent that was lingering on my skin. It’s called “Superworld Unknown” made by LUSH, but of course! I actually had to go out on a limb when purchasing this scent because I’d only been able to read the description on it since it’s only available online. I was never able to actually smell it until I made the order, but I tell you it was worth every penny and worth every minute of waiting for it to arrive. On the LUSH website (lushusa.com) they describe the scent as being reminiscent of a day at the carnival and it kind of is. It’s a very sweet smelling scent, but there’s also a sophistication about it too. It’s sweet, creamy, tangy and floral fresh as well. Sounds so complicated, but the scent comes together in the most amazing way.
Hey ladies! Here’s a quick and easy smokey eye for you gals on the go! Sometimes I’ll be in a rush and can’t think of what to do with my eyes and I find that I always fall back to different variations of these two colors from MAC called “Sketch” and “Beauty Marked”. Sketch is one of my absolute favorites, it’s a deep, deep almost burgandy-ish / dark dark brown. Then “Beauty Marked” is a rich black accented with subtle shimmers of deep red. Basically no matter how I wear these colors they always give me a nice warm, smokey effect. No matter if I apply a little of a lot these two colors are definitely worth the splurge at MAC, but this isn’t a “Worth The Splurge” post…this is more of a how to get the look post. In fact, these two colors can be easily mimicked if you’re using one of those trusty and super affordable eyeshadow palettes from ELF.
November is here, Thanksgiving is on the way, and cuddle weather is in full swing! Pull your nearest and dearest into bed for some totally necessary cuddle time. Crank the coziness up a few notches by trading tension relieving back massages. Here are some tips on how to give an amazing massage.
I’ve got another high quality “top shelf duplicate” for all my frugal shoppers out there! If you’re a fan of MAC Cosmetics’ line of “Lipglass” lip-glosses then you will absolutely love the “Glossaholic” lip-gloss line by Hard Candy (available exclusively at Wal-Mart).
With my hair swept up and out of my face I usually like to add bold colors with the makeup, and today is no different. I’m sporting a braided back top-bun so naturally I started looking at all of my bold eye shadows and lipsticks. After scouring my collections I found this old jar of “Wet & Wild” loose silver glitter…score!
