Beauty Must Have: Gold & Silver Lacy Tattoos

I stumbled upon these super cool, eye-catching tattoos at Paper Source about two years ago, and have been wearing them ever since. I “layer” them with my watch for events, and will put a thin one on my wrist from time to time. They are the perfect accessory because they do not get caught on things as some bracelets can. For an unexpected twist…

What Is Your Breakout Telling You?

It happens. Although we are past our awkward teen years, we can’t help but get mini breakouts in strange spots from time to time.

A Very Stylish Fourth

  Fourth of July fashion does not mean having to look like an American flag, because that is literally the last thing I would want to do. Buying something new is always fun, but what’s the point if you can only wear it once, right? Instead of picking up a “4th of July” T that you will most likely use as a rag starting…

In The Blue

  Wearing bright make up can be hard to pull off. Smudged orange lipstick? You could look like a clown. Too much purple eyeshadow? You get questions about your black eye. Usually, we stick to demure browns and blacks for fear of looking a little faux pas. However, the playful wardrobe that comes along with summer weather allows us to think outside the boring…

Calm Dry Skin & A Sunburn

We have all been there. A trip to the beach easily becomes a day in the sun, leaving your skin dried out or worse, a little red. Although it is always important to reapply SPF throughout the day, usually with a body lotion and a separate face lotion for maximum benefits, sometimes you just can’t fight it. If you find yourself a victim of…
