White Nails?

I have seen some women with white nail polish and wanted to try it on myself.  It was actually hard to find a bottle of white polish that didn’t have a pink base.  I like the outcome though.  It looks really bright paired with my summer complexion.  I think this would look good on anyone too.  I added an accent nail with silver glitter so it wouldn’t look boring.  This will look pretty done any time of year too.  I think in winter I will add the silver glitter to every nail.

Summer Lovin’

It’s the first day of Summer – get out there and do something rewarding.  Look into volunteering this summer to give back to your community.  Stay safe, take too many pictures and make too many memories!

Life is too short to obsess over your waistline, closet or Fashion week – get out there and live.

 

What is on your list this Summer season?

Heat Wave Hair Watch

The past few days have been a reminder that the Summer heat is right around the corner.  This prompted me to stock up on some summer hair supplies for when it is pointless to use a blow dryer and other styling tools.

For my curly haired mavens, Dove makes a great whipped mousse product that is inexpensive.  Suave does as well and is even cheaper.  I usually finish off the style with Dove’s hairspray. I’ve never been a fan of putting all those creams & salvs in your hair.  Avocado and mayo should be kept in your sandwich, not topped on your head.  I also don’t believe a lot of those “all natural” items work well.  Dove really does have a fantastic line of products for just about every hair type.  From coarse and dry, to thin and oily – there is something for you to maintain your coif and it’s not too expensive.  All hair needs proper moisturizer, and proper cleansing.  Don’t neglect it!

Remember if you are going swimming in the pool to not add any product to your hair.  If you do have something in your hair, rinse it out before going for a dip.  The chemicals in the pool water will dry your hair out.  Once you are done swimming, rinse your hair out with clean water if you are able until you can wash your hair.

I usually add baby shampoo to my hair washing routine in the summer since I am washing my hair more often.  It cleans well without weighing your hair down and is inexpensive.  You don’t have to buy name brand baby shampoo, the store brand works just as well.  Don’t forget the conditioner either.  Chlorine dries your hair out big time.  If you are an avid swimmer this summer season, deep condition your hair every 2 weeks.  A lot of companies make a product that claims to work “the best.”  Dove makes a great one that works well and isn’t expensive.  You do not have to spend the big bucks for healthy hair.

Keep it simple, moisturized and healthy this summer!

Sensual Summer Legs

I admire those that get their body parts waxed regularly.  It’s expensive but the results are amazing.  I usually stick to shaving.  I never had much luck with hair removal creams either.  I guess my hair is just too stubborn?  Who knows.  Either way, for those out there who shave every other day in the summer like I do, remember to use a fresh razor, shaving cream and a good moisturizer afterward to keep your legs smooth.

I have never found one razor brand better than another, plus most of them are very expensive.  I usually buy the target brand disposable kind.  They have a small blue circle indicator to let you know when it’s time to toss it and use a new one.  I also use Target’s brand shaving cream because it works just as well as the more expensive name brand stuff.  I also have sensitive skin and it does not irritate me either.

Post shave I use Johnson & Johnson’s baby oil gel.  I feel it keeps my legs smooth without feeling greasy like baby oil sometimes can.

Also, if you are applying sunscreen after the baby oil gel, I recommend using a spray versus the lotion like cream kind.  This way it won’t make a nasty combination on your legs.

Enjoy your summer, have too much fun and make a lot of memories!
