It Is All About The Add-Ons

It Is All About The Add-Ons

Last weekend, I made the mistake of walking into my local convenience store all dressed to the nines.  Hair and make-up done.  High heels and a dress even.  I looked pretty spectacular if I do say so myself.  It was a mistake though. I go into the this particular store quite often, it is my go to store for convenience stuff.  They see me [...]

Socks, Underwear And Hangers

Socks, Underwear And Hangers

I, like most, would love to win the lottery.  I live in Florida and we have the Lottery, Powerball and Fantasy 5 as the big ones.  We have a bunch of smaller ones too but I don't ever play those.  No since dreaming about the winnings if you don't even play, the smaller ones that is.  The lottery ranges anywhere from a few $100K to lots of [...]

Laundry Basics for Clean Clothes that Last

I love my clothes, not clothes in general but my clothes.  When I find the perfect top for the perfect pants or a versatile piece that goes with anything, I want to be able to keep it around forever.  So imagine my disappointment when I pull that perfect piece of clothing out of the washer or dryer and it is ruined.  We have all been [...]

Style for the Stay at Home Mom

Since becoming a stay at home mom three years ago, I have noticed that my concern over my appearance has gone way down.  I spend the majority of my day on a computer, cooking, cleaning, running the kids to school and taking care of them when they get home.  For all of that a pair of drawstring pants, a t-shirt and a ponytail do fine.  Seems I [...]

Dressing Sexy in the Bedroom – For Beginners

Let me first say that I am a huge fan of lingerie and it has nothing to do with sex, ok well maybe some things but sex is the minor consideration here.  My love of lingerie comes from how it makes me feel rather than what it does for my partner.  I do enjoy the effects it has on him but bottom line I wear it to make myself feel good and when [...]

Hair Coloring FAQ

Hair Coloring FAQ

1.    Can I give myself highlights? No.  I could say yes and give you a detailed explanation but truth is you are best off going to a salon for highlights.  There are many variables that come into play when highlighting hair.  Working with the back of your head is also very difficult.  You might think enlisting a friend will help but it [...]

Time to Color

Supplies you need: an old towel you can toss in the trash if need be an old large t-shirt you can toss in the trash afterwards Vaseline a comb a few hair clips a timer (I use my microwave or stove timer) your coloring kit Don't skip the prep work Don't rush in and give yourself plenty of time.  Like all things you need to follow [...]

Condition Before You Color

Condition Before You Color

This is one of the areas that always bugged me about salons.  The hairstylists know for you to achieve the best results the color needs to be applied to a good canvas (your hair).  They know this and yet will color your hair the minute you walk in the door without any regard for the condition of your hair. If you are going to color at home or [...]

Choosing the Right Brand

Choosing the Right Brand

When you hit the beauty aisle you will be met with so many different brands for hair coloring. I learned long ago not to be a slave to one particular brand. I will tell you now that all brands are NOT created equal. Even brands within a brand are not created equal. Some brands are just better for some colors than others. Over the years I have [...]

Picking the Right Color

This is probably the hardest part of the whole process.  I have personally spent hours pacing back and forth on the hair coloring beauty aisle trying to figure out what color I want.  I have done the online sites where you upload a picture and then change the color of your hair, I have stared at the boxes, picked up and put down the sample [...]

DIY Hair Coloring

Do it Yourself Hair Coloring - Yes you can!!! I have colored my hair for so long I couldn't even tell you it's natural color anymore. I think it is brown with red highlights throughout, well now probably gray. I modeled for a short time and it seemed every time I turned around a new color was needed. I have gone several different shades of [...]
