Don’t you just love how the seasons change? Especially when it brings you closer and closer to being summer time!
As far as seasons go, Fall is definitely my fave, but Summer is a close second. Spring can suck it because it’s too drizzly and damp and that is NEVER good for my hair.
Over the years I have found some trends that always seem to recur during the hot summer months. Natural beachy curls are popular for hair trends, the au-natural face comes back and it makes sense. It’s too dang hot out to really vamp it up. While there are these reincarnated faves, that doesn’t mean there aren’t more new and noteworthy trends. [Keep Reading]
Who doesn’t love checking out a big toothy grin? Am I right, or am I right?
Smiles are great for so many reasons. When you’re feeling blue, a smile from a stranger can lift your spirits. A sly smile can let that hunky gentleman at the end of the bar know you are definitely interested in him buying you a beverage. [Keep Reading]
I remember when I was in elementary school I used to have the most beautiful, strong fingernails. I mean, they were perfectly curved (naturally), and boy did I get lots of compliments.
I sometimes wonder how they remained so long when I was constantly playing basketball and volleyball. I must have been doing something right, but what?
As an adult, my nails don’t seem to be as strong. I chalk this up to constantly tap, tap, tapping away on my laptop regularly, but the truth is, I’m probably doing a few other things wrong as well. [Keep Reading]

Applying makeup is a skill very few people are able to master.
Since less is more when it comes to makeup, knowing how to use a light hand can make all the difference to your face.
Begin by studying the structure of your face and your features, and learn how to highlight your good features and conceal your not-so-flattering ones. Makeup application should begin with the face because a smooth and even face requires less eye makeup and lip color. [Keep Reading]
Alright ladies, it’s time to address something you’ve all been asking about – Naturaful.

You’ve all likely heard me complain about my hair on this blog before.
Back in April 2012 I made the heinous mistake of drinking one too many glasses of red wine and allowing my bff stylist to chop my long locks off. [Keep Reading]
Ohhh snap. Spring is officially only 3 and a half weeks away!
Having grown up in one of the coldest regions of Ontario, Canada, I can totally empathize with what you’re goin through right now. It’s cold, windy, your hair is getting frizzy, your skin is dry and how the hell do you expect to keep your makeup in place with so many scarfs, hats, hoodies and jackets coming in contact with them?

The holiday season is finally winding down. People are heading back to work. Christmas trees are being taken down and reality is kicking back in.
Like most people, I enjoy the idea of making a New Year resolution. The problem isn’t so much with the resolution making, but in the execution.
I can’t even count on both my hands how many times my so called resolutions were forgotten by the time the first week of January had passed. That being said, I always try. [Keep Reading]

There’s no stopping it – you can’t run and you can’t hide. It’s coming for you and it won’t rest until its ravaging is complete.
No, I’m not talking about a serial killer or a disease. The ruthless monster I speak of is winter and its victim is your hair.
Those of us who live in dry, cold-weather climates know all too well the harmful effects that winter can have on hair. Although there’s no fighting Mother Nature and her blustery fury, there are many helpful tips that can keep locks lustrous in the winter months. [Keep Reading]
Growing up I rarely wore makeup. I didn’t seem to have the desire to try cobalt blue eyeliner like my junior high peers, nor did I feel like blowing my hard earned allowance on high priced cosmetics.
It wasn’t until I neared the end of my University career that I realized a few swipes of mascara were well worth my time and money.
Over time and after watching my friends apply their daily makeup, I came to have a few incredibly helpful makeup tips in my Ladies Night Out arsenal. Since I wish someone had shared these with me earlier, I’m going to share them with you! [Keep Reading]
