It’s almost that time of year again when we have to unpack our favorite sweaters and boots to get ready for the fall season. I can’t wait! Although it is a huge pain to unpack all of my fall and winter clothes and put away summer clothes, I love going through it all and being able to give away anything that I don’t want or won’t wear this fall.
Anyways, this is the best time of year because bundling up and layering your clothes can look SO cute! I hope you love this collection of fall outfits as much as I do! Enjoy!
This is my absolute favorite curly/wavy hair tutorial! I have seen it WAY to many times, but I like to watch it each time I curl my hair so I can remember exactly how to do it.
I was horrible at curling my hair before! This has definitely helped me to improve my skills and I wanted to share it so that I can help you guys too!
I’d love to see and hear about your results! So, please leave your comments below! (:
My favorite detangler brush now comes in a SPARKLY version! Could this brush get any better?!
I love my sleep and at night after I shower, I barely blow dry my hair. So, when I wake up in the morning it is so tangled. I had a really hard time brushing it. It hurt so bad! Then a friend bought me the Michel Mercier Detangler Brush for Christmas and it made detangling my hair so much easier!
It is not completely pain free, but it is such an improvement. I think that as long as you start at the bottom and work your way up, this brush works perfectly. I like that the handle is long and easy to hold. It work great whether my hair is wet or dry and it never slips from my hand.
I use it on my niece too (who turns four today OMG). She hated having her hair brushed before we bought this and now she sometimes will fall asleep while I’m brushing it that’s how easy it is.
Did I mention how much I love the new design? It is so cute and I love that it’s sparkly!! These will make great gifts this year for Christmas for anyone.
I will be placing my order today + will post pictures as soon as I get my new sparkly brush!
I’d love to hear what you think of the new design, or your thoughts on the brush overall!!

Lately, I have really wanted to experiment with color in my hair!
I have always had super dark brown/black hair, which I love, but sometimes it can be pretty boring. I don’t want to dye it because I can’t have brightly colored hair at work. I’m also too afraid to do something so drastic.
Well, while I was on Pinterest the other week, I saw that Demi Lovato endorses colored hair extensions now. They are called Secret Color Hair Extensions. Of course, I ordered them! They finally arrived and I really really love them! They make me wish I could dye my hair. ):
They come in several colors and they are super easy to put in your hair. It literally takes seconds! I had to cut mine because they were too long, but now they blend perfectly.
I also bought some other colored ones from Etsy. They have the best stuff on there. I could spend ALL day looking at the beautiful items on Etsy.
Anyways, I just wanted to share how much I love colored extensions now. If you are thinking about trying them, I would definitely go with Secret Color Extensions from Demi Lovato or …… They are inexpensive and I really loved them. Plus, they look super cute!
I’d love to answer any questions, or hear what you think about either of these colored extensions.

I absolutely love nail polish and having my nails painted, BUT I hate when they scuff right after I paint them or chip the very next day. So, I would spend tons of money on gel nails every month. Then I realized how much I was actually spending and went back to regular nail polish.
Sally Hansen recently came out with a Gel Nail Polish Kit, but I didn’t really want to do all the work involved with it. I didn’t want to buy the light, or have to use the tin foil to get the polish off. So, I never tried the kit that comes in the box from Sally Hansen.
The other day I was in CVS though, and saw that they had a Top Coat that you could buy that would give you instant Gel Nails. So, obviously I had to try it. I bought the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat and a super bright color to end my summer with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Tidal Wave.
This stuff is amazing! It goes on super smooth and easy because Sally Hansen Nail Polish has the best nail brush. It is thicker then other brushes so you only need a few swipes on the nail. It dried really quickly and I had an amazing no-chip manicure in no time at all!
I put two coats of the Tidal Wave polish on. Then I used the Miracle Top Coat and I was done. I didn’t use a base coat because it said that I didn’t need it. I have now had my bright blue nails for 6 days and still no chips or scoffs in them. I won’t be using anything but Sally Hansen Gel Nail Polish from now on. It would be a waste of my time to go back to regular polish and have to do touch ups all the time.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this incredible nail polish, or any tips or stories you may have!
Tease Your Way to the Top!
Extensions are the easiest option when it comes to adding volume. You simply put them in and head out the door. But in order to get that much needed extra volume on top, you will definitely need a teasing comb. It’s a good idea to tease the back of your head and also wear you are going to lay the headband. This will make your hair less smooth, so the extensions stay in place for all day wear. It will also help to cover the headband, so no one knows your secret!
Make it Match!
To make your extensions blend in better, add a little shine serum to your hair before applying the strands. This will make your hair look super soft and silky, which will match the extensions perfectly! I really like Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. It penetrates deep into the hair, makes it smooth, and cuts down on drying time.
Turn Them Upside Down!
If you are using extensions with clips, then place them n the direction your hair will be going. If you’ll be rocking a ponytail or updo, then place the clips upward. They will go the same way as the hair then and look super natural. It will feel weird and look weird if you place them the other way. My favorite clip-in extensions are from Luxy Hair. They feel natural and are so smooth and silky.
Length is Crucial!
Make sure your extensions are only slightly longer then your hair or at the same level. If they are too long, they don’t look good. You have to blend them well to have longer extensions. You could try layering them yourself or even go into a salon and they will do it for you. I like cutting them myself because I know what looks best in my hair and don’t have to worry about someone else cutting them too short.
Go Au Naturale!
On a more day to day basis, you can still wear extensions for a relaxed look. Make sure you wet them the night before and let them air dry. This will get rid of some of the shine, and give you a more natural look. You can also use foam rollers to give a nice lose wave to the extensions for a more natural beachy look.
It’s totally possible to burn more calories everyday. You just have to make the decision of whether or not you are willing to take the small steps towards a healthier lifestyle.
Your body naturally burns calories all day long, but who wouldn’t want to lose more? With these easy-to-follow daily routines you could burn 200 more calories everyday!
Walk everywhere you can!
If you are going to eat lunch at work, and are within walking distance of restaurants, just walk there. If you need to stop at the post office and it’s just down the road, then take a brisk walk. Make sure you always have a pair of sneakers in your car, so that when the option to walk presents itself you can do it. You’ll be saving on gas, helping the environment, AND burning more calories.
Take the stairs!
I know how tempting it is to take the elevator everyday, but the stairs will get your heart pumping and burn a few more calories each day. No matter where you are, the mall, work, school, opt for taking the stairs everywhere you go. You’ll be burning big time calories in no time with this step!
Many of us have children to keep us on our toes. So, this is an easy way for us to burn more calories. Take the kids on a bike ride or go for a walk with the stroller. You’ll be spending more time with your kids and burning tons of calories at the same time.
Park far away!
It is such a pain to try and find spots close to stores or work anyway, so this is the perfect time to squeeze in some additional exercise. If you park farther away from work you’ll burn extra calories on the way in and out everyday. You could even park on the total opposite side of the building to make your walk even longer.
Walk the dog!
Your dog probably needs a certain amount of exercise each day to get that hyper-ness out of his system. So, a walk would be great for both you and him. If you make it a routine, you doggy will love you and so will your body.
Laughing burns calories too! What better way to burn calories than by having a good laugh. You could go to a comedy show or stay at home and watch a funny movie. Find something that makes you laugh and enjoy every single calorie-burning minute of it!
I have ALWAYS had trouble with procrastination and trying to stay motivated. However, this plan has actually helped me! I am able to run 3 miles in 30 minutes easily. I have even started running 5 days a week and have passed the thirty minutes. This is a great routine to follow to start out though. It definitely helped me stay motivated because it changes quickly, and every four days is something different. I hope that you have just as much success because there is no better feeling then the one you have after a run. Even if it is a good or a bad run, you still feel great and are very proud of yourself.
Hope this helps. I would love to know if it does, so please comment below!
