De-clog Those Pores With Glory

De-clog Those Pores With Glory

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well and excited for easter. This weekend is very packed for us and I want to be spring fresh. ( Or as close to it) So, I decided to dig through my hoard of face masks and landed on the Soap and Glory De-clog Mask.

I know soap and glory are known for their packaging but come on how cute is this! Oh and just wait…. it’s PINK. Yes, bubble gum pink. ( I lost it) Now that I’m praying I love it as much as I do the looks of it.

First off the smell is a bit strong but pleasant. I just rather have non-scented skin care products because my skin is sensitive to fragrances. The application was smooth and fairly easy. ( Did I mention it comes with a baby spoon!)

The directions say to wait 20-25 minutes. It dries much quicker and comes off nicely. One disclaimer I want to add is that it does pull your hair. For me that was not a deal breaker but just be careful! Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The after magic? My face was super smooth and clean-looking. I could definitely tell a difference in my pores. I’d give the de-clog a 8 out 10. For $6.00 you get two applications in seperate pots. I will be forsure repurchasing more of the soap and glory masks.

If you have any questions or concerns please leave a comment…. lets chat!

Question of the day: Favorite soap and glory product?

Where Have You Been?

Where Have You Been?

Hello everyone! How has everybody been? I hope you are all well. It has been awhile since I posted, (YIKES) before you go picking up your pitchforks and torches. I have a good reason. I just completed my first semester of college! This past week I took 3 finals (passed them all btw) and I thought to myself girl you have got to start writing again. I’ve missed it so much!

Exciting news, I do not start school again till January 8th. ( Thank the lord) I really didn’t think people were serious about how much work college was. I want to revamp my page, I want to know some new topics/things you guys want to read about. I was thinking of starting a new series where I go around and try new beauty services. For example I’ve been interested in the new slushy pedicure! Like whaaat?!?! How amazing does that sound?

More updates… hmmm… I have been super obsessed over the new Amazon show the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! (Look how cute the shows filter on snapchat was haha) It is an amazing show, very funny, and I love the vintage aspect of it. I’ve been getting my nails done every three weeks so I also want to add a post on the that once a month.

I will be posting a favorites post as well as a couple of reviews from things I have either bought or have been sent. Well, thats it for now.IMG_4455.jpg

Prom Hair? Or Disney Princess Hair!

Hey everyone I’m back with a prom hair tutorial! My sister Sarah (the beauty in the pictures) is not really going to prom but I’m made her choose some inspiration anyways… she of course chose Belle.

  1. Brush through your hair to make it knot free.
  2. Begin by curling the ends of your hair for a more polished finish.
  3. Then take the front section of hair and braid into a loose braid use a small rubber band to secure.prom hair 1
  4. Leave out the braid and a few curls in the front, but taking the rest of your hair.. put into a low side pony on the side with the braid.prom hair 2
  5. Take the braid and wrap the end around the pony tail holder and secure with a bobby pin.
  6. Now take one curl at a time and wrap into a circle and secure with a hair pin onto of the pony tail. prom hair 3
  7. Repeat set 6 a few times to achieve desired look.
  8. Leave a good portion of the pony tail down.prom hair 4
  9. Finish off the look with a light mist of Hairspray!

Prom For The Realist 

High schoolers, you are now getting ready for PROM! Yes, it’s that time of year and things can be stressful but don’t you worry I’m going to put things in perspective.

First things first: Having to have a date is a complete myth. You do not need to go with anyone. I went solo to my senior prom and had a blast!

Second: You do NOT need to spend a fortune on your look. There is a ton of really cool ways to look unique and fashionable, that don’t have to leave you broke and stressed!

Lets break down your needs and your to-dos:

Dress– Try second hand shops or clearance racks. It’s super fun to go dress hunting! Plus, who wants to go in a dress that everyone else has.

Tux– Honestly a sports coat and slacks can be just as great as a tux! Your don’t have to follow all the 1950s rules of dances (You so can though!). Just with dresses try alternative means as well as going to a tuxedo rental store.

Shoes– Guess what? There is more to the shoe game then just heels! My sister wore toms to her prom and looked extremely cute and edgy! Oh and a quick note your going to be ditching those shoes as soon as the music comes on anyways!tom1

Jewelry (optional)- Ladies and gents wearing gaudy bling is out. If your dress is the star of the show, wear simple pieces!

Hair– Like I said keep it simple! Don’t over do it on the products. Remember hairspray is to help hold not make your “do” rock hard! Trust me people can tell! sarah 1

Makeup-Simple chic makeup is just as great/ maybe even better than extreme colors and crazy contouring.

Nails– It is just as much fun painting your nails as it is going to the salon to get a full set! I think both can be just as beautiful as the other!prom sister

Going to get your hair and makeup done is a really good thing to do if you can’t do it yourself. But I think having a get ready party and having your friends come over to help is a great way to have fun and just relax!

Remember prom is suppose to be fun! Don’t worry about others and don’t forget that this is a right of passage! This is for you, so have fun and look how you want to look!

These photos are from my little sisters junior prom so ill be posting a hair and makeup post similar to the ones in the pictures, don’t forget to watch out for those! If you have any questions or need advice let me know!

Question of the day-what does/did your prom dress look like?
