#33 Getting a Genuine Compliment from a Stranger

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Getting compliments from people you know is always a great self esteem booster and can brighten up our day instantly.  However, getting a compliment from a stranger can be even more impactful.  They don’t know you, probably won’t ever see you again, and have no reason to talk to you other than to tell you something they like about you.  Think about the times where you have complimented a stranger.  It was because you really genuinely liked something about them and felt they absolutely had to know right?  Those are the compliments that can change your attitude and outlook and allow you to have an incredible day!

#30 Lashing Out. Lashes.

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

We love getting all done up to go out-hair, nails, make-up, outfit choices…all fabulous! Those false eyelashes though, they can really amp up your look instantly!  Lashes add a little bit of drama and really open up the eyes.  Applying them though, can be a whole other story. The glue, the placement, the drying; it can be a little daunting to those of us who haven’t attempted it before.  Here is a great video demonstration from Pixiwoo that can help!

#23 Fabulous Things We Love: Matching Bra & Underwear

Monday, February 18, 2013
As women we are designed to want to feel beautiful and even a little sexy!  Behold! The hidden “sexy” power of hidden matching bra and underwear.  There is something to be said about the pampering feeling we get when wearing a matching lingerie set and being the only one let in on the secret.  So bring it on matching lace, leopard, polka dot, sating and bright neon's!  We like that we can control our destiny from the moment we get up.  Forget wearing this for a hot date, we’re wearing this for ourselves!


#10 Fabulous Things We Love: Brewer’s Yeast And Oatmeal Scrub

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

I have to share this skincare secret with you. It doesn’t smell so pretty but I promise your skin will glow! One of my amazing teachers at FIDM gave us this recipe for a natural exfoliator:

1/4 cup brewer’s yeast

1/4 cup chopped oatmeal

purified water

In a small bowl, mix dry ingredients and put into a jar to save excess for future use. In another small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the scrub with enough water to form a spreadable paste. Allow mixture to thicken for 1 minute.

Using your fingertips, massage onto face and throat and allow to dry for 15 minutes. It’s important to not wash it off immediately.

Trust me on this one. I’ve become quite the beauty product junkie and have been searching for a perfect exfoliator. Before I tried this recipe I was doing a comparison between Fresh’s Soy Face Exfoliant, Kate Somerville’s Exfolikate and NaturaBisse’s C+C Vitamin Scrub. At the time I was in love with Kate’s Exfolikate. After using it, my skin was so soft, smooth and had the sexiest glow to it. However, the oatmeal from the recipe is so gentle that you won’t be able to go back to a product that has granules in it. I was stunned to realize how coarse and irritating these products truly are.

The other great thing about this homemade recipe is that it immediately kills any pimples. If I ever have a little breakout I just whip up a little batch, scrub and let it sit for 15 minutes. Every single time I’ve done it my breakouts are gone by the next morning. I promise.

#7 Fabulous Things We Love: Being Complimented by Another Woman

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

There is no better self-esteem booster than when a woman comes up to you and compliments you on your hair, outfit, shoes, fill-in-the-blank!  As women, we know how tough it is to choose the perfect outfit, maintain our hair, nails, stay in shape, etc.  So when another woman recognizes the hard work we have put into making our self feel beautiful, it means more than when a man compliments us.  Men have no clue how tough it is to be a woman. Men will compliment anything that has legs! But when a woman can recognize the beauty in another woman and compliment her-it means a lot.  So, next time you are admiring a woman’s hair or skin or even the confident way she walks-make sure you tell her! It will make her day and yours too!

#4 Fabulous Things We Love: A Great Pair of Jeans

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Awww…that feeling of a great pair of jeans. The kind that fits just right in all the right spots.  The kind that you don’t have to do the frog dance to get into or suck in all day when you’re wearing them.  It’s the pair that makes your butt look good, your legs look long and feel like you’re wearing sweat pants (we wish).  It’s those jeans you found randomly when you weren’t looking that caught you by surprise and made you take a second glance in the mirror. Maybe you even started dancing when you tried them on (winner).  

A great pair of jeans can change your mood; change your strut even! I have a favorite pair of jeans that I won’t ever let go of. Of course they are discontinued and I can’t find them anywhere and the knee is missing and I’ve had to get them repaired a couple times, but I don’t care. I love those jeans. I need those jeans.  When I wear those jeans I feel like Jennifer Aniston in any given movie and how she always looks like the most beautiful all American girl next door-that effortless classic beauty.  Finding a great pair of jeans is like winning the lottery.  And when you find them, buy them in every wash and then one more just in case!
