SWIMSUIT CONFIDENCE

Geez..I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in FOUR WHOLE DAYS! I know..I’m bad.! :/

Anyways, heyyyy sexy ladies!

Summer’s creeping up quickly…and let’s be honest…is anyone ready to squeeze into their swimsuits?

Honestly, I feel kinda self-concious. Because, A: My tummy will never be flat-as-a-board, B: I have NO boobs, and C: My ass will NEVER look as perky as J.Lo’s.

Well…I have something to say to all the girls who feel the same:

YOU SHOULD JUST EMBRACE YOUR BODY.

I mean, who cares?!?! Who. Cares.

Have fun. Dance around. Accept yourself, gurl.!!! Summers should be cherished, so soak it up. Before you know it, it’s autumn again and we’re bundled up in scarves, thick jackets, leggings, and boots.

Everybody, let’s make a pledge right now!!

This summer, I, _________, pledge to embrace what I’ve got, and STOP comparing myself to celebrities, friends, AND Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Say it! Cuz honey, NO ONE is beautiful quite like YOU.

And that’s a true story. :}

Two New Finds

Hi everyone!

I recently went shopping, and purchased two new lipsticks by Esteé Lauder. I’m actually pretty pleased with these, so I wanted to have a little review on each! 

The first one is “Pink Power”Image 

It’s a creamy, bright pink with super-subtle gold shimmer. Bubble-gum pinks are VERY in right now, and isn’t this gorg? It brightens up my face really nicely and gives a young, fresh feel to your makeup. Plus, it’s very long-lasting, (Trust me, I wore it to school today and hardly had to do touch-ups!) but pricey. 25 bucks pricey. 😦 

The SECOND one is “Violet Electra” Image

This is my new favorite color I’ve EVER owned. Look at that swatch! Isn’t it dazzling? On the lips, it does not look like chrome, but a beautiful swipe of lush, delectable color. It’s unique. It’s edgy. It’s sexy. It’s va-va-voom sexy. When I wear it, it brings out every bit of gold in my skin and eyes, and I adore it. I MORE than adore it. I love it. I crave it. It’s the color I’ve been waiting for all my life. 

Love you guys! Peace out!

DIY Lip Color

I’m SO SO SO excited to show you guys this.

It’s a super-easy, super-fun way to create your own, personalized lip color with little to no cost. Me and my friends used to do this at slumber-parties, so we would have all these little lip-goodies to take home with us.

Let’s go!!

Supplies: 

A saucer or plate

A mixing tool (fork, spoon, chopstick, ect.)

An empty tub, contact case, or any other little container 

Vaseline or petroleum jelly 

Vanilla extract 

A blush or eyeshadow (Or both!) 

Directions: 

Get out your little mixing-plate and squeeze out a bit of Vaseline. Taking your eyeshadow or blush,   scratch off a generous amount of pigment onto the plate, add your yummy vanilla, and mix it all up.

If you think it’s missing something, you can always mix more colors! You’re not restricted, in fact, the more pigments, the better.

As soon as you’re happy with it, scrape it into the container.

******************************************************************************************

Aaaaaaand you are done!!

Enjoy the endless possibilities! You can paint this stuff on with a lip brush or your finger, and it’s uniquely YOURS. Plus, it’s a great way to recycle old eyeshadows and blushes!

JUST A TIP: Write down what pigments you used in case you want to ever make more!

Have funnn!

How To Look Good in Pictures

Hi my adorables!

Have you ever looked back at super-old pics of yourself and CRINGED? Wondered what the heck you were thinking back then? Wanted to just wipe out those embarrassing year-books? Yeah, me too.

Want to know how to look good in pictures? Of course you do! Here’s my life-saving information:

Step 1: 

If you’re at a place where you KNOW people will be snapping pics left and right, wear a little makeup to conceal flaws and put the oil-slick skin at bay. You don’t have to wear a lot, just enough to look like you, but enhanced and confident. nomakeup-look

Step 2: 

Wear some clothes that make you feel attractive and comfy!! If you’re wearing a too-tight, white dress that pinches in all the wrong places, chances are you won’t look, or feel, so good. (That is, unless you’re a Victoria’s Secret angel.)

Wear something appropriate for the event, that goes with you’re body type and coloring. This will get rid of all worries about clothing problems!

Step 3: 

Well, your facial expression usually plays a big part in how your photo turns out. If you’re having a good time, put on your best, genuine smile. In my opinion, everyone on this whole wide Earth looks better when they smile. Instead of ducking under a table, angle your face towards the camera and smile like you’re meeting a close friend. Or, make a funny-face! Have fun! It IS just a photo, after all.

Anyway, photos are photos. But, I hope these tips were somewhat-helpful, because these are things that I use all the time when I’m around cameras. Of course, you probably won’t look like Marilyn Monroe, OR a Victoria’s Secret angel, but you’re not supposed to! You’re unique. And you’re beautiful! When you look in the mirror, you can know that no one else looks like you, and that makes you special.
