- Artificial lashes of your choice (I used Dodo Lashes, style D115).
- Cosmetic grade glitter.
- Glitter adhesive (I used Sprinkles Glue from Beauty Bakerie).
- While leaving your lashes in their tray, brush a third (or however much you are wanting for your first glitter) with glitter adhesive.
- Repeat the process with the rest of the lash.
- After the tops have dried fully, gently remove them from their tray, and repeat the process with the bottom side of the lashes.
- Once both sides have dried, you are ready to apply.

Voted one of Allure’s Readers’ Choice winners in 2016, the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs are definitely worth trying out; especially if you are looking to get your skin summer ready.
The shea sugar scrubs come in several different scent combinations, including: Coconut Lime, Marula & Jasmine, Moroccan Rose, Brazilian Nut, Tropical Mango, Pomegranate Acai, Hawaiian Kukui, Passion Fruit & Guava, Lychee & Plum, and Original Shea.
I have tried the three pictured above, and would absolutely repurchase them. It is a very gentle scrub that exfoliated very well and leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturized.
The application is simple and self-explanatory. You just scoop out the desired amount of product into your hand and apply in a circular motion to the area of the body you want to exfoliate. The sugar disintegrates as you scrub, and moisturizes your skin. Once you’ve scrubbed enough, rinse with water. I usually use this product while I am in the shower, after I have washed with soap.
So where can you pick up these scrubs to try out for yourself, you ask. Ulta has a large selection (actually I think they carry every single version), and they often have a two for one, or buy one get the second 1/2 off deal. But for the regular price of $7.99 (18 oz.) you are still getting a great product for an inexpensive price tag. I have also seen them for sale on Amazon and at some Bed, Bath and Beyond stores.

Back from the Too Faced archives comes the Papa Don’t Peach Blush. I have been wanting to try this for a while now, but finally the time has come and based on the last few weeks of using it, I am very happy that Too Faced decided to bring this new and improved version back into existence.
If you haven’t already heard the hype or you have yet to try this sweet peach out for yourself, let me give you the highlights. First, it smells AMAZING! Seriously, the peachy aroma goodness is definitely one of its greatest selling points. Second, the adorable packaging. It is cute and functional. The compact is a magnetized tin, and kind of reminds me of vintage makeup compacts. Third, and probably the most important is the sheer quality of the product. The blush itself is a beautiful warm and natural shade that has a good pigment, yet is buildable upon application to create either a very natural, radiant glow or a more dramatic, sun-kissed bronzed effect.
Other reviews comment on its versatility as a highlighter as well, but because my skin is so fair that is not an option I can speak of first-hand. Review after review also echo the positive qualities I mentioned above which clearly demonstrate the need to try this product out if you are in the market for a new blush.
- 4.9/5 on Too Faced website (208 reviews)
- 4.6/5 on Ulta website (115 reviews)
- 4/5 on Sephora website (189 reviews)
For $30 at Sephora, Ulta, or the Too Faced website, you will get a fairly large pan of product (0.32 oz.), in which a little goes a long way. I’ve been using it daily for about two weeks now and it looks as though I just opened it. The imprinted image is still perfect!

So at first look, I must admit these did not catch my eye….but what changed? Here is a little back story. I am a natural brunette who has very light bleached blonde hair. It is very fragile and requires a lot of extra special care and attention to keep it looking healthy. Most days (if I am being honest) my hair is up in some sort of a messy bun, and like most girls, I would use the regular, circular hair ties (like these). While reading through various blogs and Instagram accounts that I follow, I came across a post about the damage that traditional hair ties can cause, and when I say damage, I mean breakage. The worst word to be spoken in front of any bleached blonde.
So I began to do a little research. I like to use Ulta as a starting point for research because they usually have tons of reviews for the items they carry. In my research I found that these strange looking hair ties were quite remarkable and were rated 4.5/5.0 (based on 106 reviews). Many people stated that they did not hurt their head like other types of hair ties, that they don’t pull or break the hair, that they do not leave an indent pattern on the hair when removed and the list goes on and on.
First and foremost I wanted something that could easily be camouflaged in my hair. Second, I needed a hair tie that was sturdy and would hold all day without the need to readjust from slipping. Based on the reviews I read, I thought I’d try them out.
So glad that I did! These are a great product and the story behind the company is rather cute as well. One most women can relate to.
While a price point of $7.95 for a quantity of 3 might seem a tad high; once you try these for yourself you will quickly realize that they are totally worth it. I’ve even thrown away all my old hair bands. The Invisibobble hair ties come in a variety of colors, but I love the clear version because it is easily concealed when I put my hair up.
In the weeks I have used them (and again, I wear my hair up most days), I have noticed less tangling, more comfort throughout the day, and on a huge positive note, my messy buns have never looked better…BONUS! 🙂

With spring here and summer around the corner, sunglasses are not only an accessory but a necessity.
