[BEAUTY] Life Hacks, While Saving Money

In a world where beauty is forever changing, I decided to put together a few life hacks that have stuck around the last couple of years. If given the option to change one thing about your appearance for little or no cost I am sure over 50% of women and men will have a couple of things on the list. What if I told you can change a few things without breaking your bank or making them permanent. There are a million different ways to enhance features and I am going to let you in on a few of them.



The most talked about is the trend…

Highlight & Contouring.

I can have that cute little button nose or my dark spots can just magically disappear. Not only does it change your facial appearance it also can help out with the cleavage as well as a few abs for our non-working out people who want to give the illusion of abs.




Next on the list will be the Waist Trainers, now this neat piece of attire tighten the abdomen region,  lifts the chest and slim the waist giving us that Cocoa-Cola bottle shape or as I say Mermaid shape.








Now my last hack may surprise a lot of you all, but I swear by it. Baby oil, now before you turn up your face like I just said something disappointing hear me out. Have you ever seen a person and they have this glow about them, automatically you are going to think its glitter highlight, but let me tell you for $1.99 at your local Wal-Mart you to can have that shine? Do you want your legs to seem overly sexy add some baby oil to it the next time you decide to put them heels on and check the difference?  Think you have a two pack of abs put some baby oil on it and “BOOM”, you have a six-pack.

With all of this being said changing your appearance can be temporary or permanent, but the love of self is forever.

[Fashion] “FALL” In Love With Color

Fall seems to signify waves of significant change. We change our wardrobe,  our clocks and yep; we even change our relationship status…. you know… it is cuffing season!! LOL!! We begin to gravitate toward things that would give us instant gratification. Well I can think of one thing that you immediate change to not only warm you up but give you an image boost and make you feel good about yourself… Color your hair!!

Whether your natural or relaxed; wear extension or your own hair; black, white or anything in between changing your hair color can give you the new and instant change you need to jump start the new year while working on everything else you have resolved to do with your body, life and habits!! Lol.

Although cold weather has a tendency to make hair look dull and feel dry it does necessarily mean you have to go darker. But if you do, try colors that are chocolate browns, red browns and rich coppers. When going lighter try adding highlights or ombres of rich blondes, reds and copper to brighter  hair instead of coloring the entire head. This will allow you to have the effects of full color  with minimal stress.

Also trending is ombre hair with pastel and bright colors such as blues, purples, and yes, fuchsias. This trend may be for the young or young at heart generation (such as myself) but if done correctly can be worn tastefully and not perceived as rebel hair.

Now to get the best results I will always suggest that you consult a professional cosmetologist when it comes to coloring your hair, especially in any situation that requires going lighter or bleaching technique but if that doesn’t fit your budget you can to DIY (do it yourself) with any color rinse or permanent colors such as L’Oreal. But those result will not be guaranteed!! Proceed at your own risk!!

Either way, the best way to instaGLAM your life it to add color!!  It worked with tv, with works with an all-black wardrobe and it’ll definitely work for you!! #ding!
