No, I don’t think I am too old!

Keyword: shimmer art, glitter tattoos, shimmer body

If you are a girl, you cannot look at that and not wish this it was on your arm, or leg instead!  It’s so sparkly, and pretty!  So I bet you are thinking…how do I get one of these, and is it appropriate for someone my age to have one? Well, let me just say that it is appropriate for any one at any age to sport a glitter tattoo.  If someone gives you a hard time about it, you just send them my way! So now that you so desperately want one, let me tell you my story-

I was laying in bed last night flipping through the channels.  I had a long busy work day and even though I was tired, I could not for the life of me fall asleep. So here I am watching Nickelodeon at 1am because they play all the old 90′s Nick shows and it totally takes me back to being a kid! All of a sudden this commercial comes on.  I actually got so excited that I sat up in bed just staring at my screen.  I can make my very own glitter tattoos?!  Are you serious!?  It was like a dream come true.  I immediately grabbed my phone and wrote down the website in the note pad where I jot down article ideas.  I knew it had to be the first thing I wrote about as soon as I woke up!

Here’s how it works… You get one of two sets (don’t be cheap, get the bigger and better one. No one wants to be stuck with only 4 colors!) Pick your stencil, place it anywhere on your body.  Use the glue to paint your skin inside the stencil.  Remove stencil and paint glitter over sticky surface.  Accoding to the commercial it lasts for about a week.  To order this product and watch the infomercial they have go to shimmerbodyart.com

I just want to cover my body with all kinds of glittery stars and butterflies!

 

The meaning of this article = I am just a big kid (never mind the fact that I turn 30 tomorrow!)

Melting Nails

Keyword: heat, melting nails, nail polish

Whoa..guess is really is hot out there, huh?  Must have been cool to create this look but I can’t imagine is being comfortable to wear.  It does look cool though!




Water can be so boring!

Keyword: hydrated, water, drinking water

They say that water is the best way to stay hydrated during these hot summer days.  Dehydration can affect you in several ways. The quality of your skin, hair, and nails are all affected by how hydrated you are.  But what if you are like me and find drinking water to be super boring?

Try to spice it up!  Add cucumber, lemon, and orange slices to your water and it will actually have flavor to it and you’ll be excited to drink it!  It also will be reminiscent of being at the spa. Boy could I use one of those days, huh?

I have already admitted how OBSESSED I am with Oscar nominated actress Michelle Williams, so I am sure you will enjoy my commentary on her perfect fashion choices every now and again :) . On Wednesday, February 15th, Michelle Williams attended the French premier of My Week With Marilyn, in this GORGEOUS Christian Dior gown. I adore everything about her look, and I love that the look was a bit out of the norm for her. I can’t wait to see what she wears to the Oscars next week!

My Favorite Lotion

Keyword: Cerave, lotion, moisturizer, facial

I was first given this product by a Doctor who I had seen when my face started to break out with “hormonal acne”  It’s fun to have this problem in your late 20′s after going through your teen years with perfect skin! *rolls eyes*  Needless to say, I have it under control now.  The Doctor handed me CeraVe PM facial lotion and told me to use it twice a day (morning & night).  On top of making sure I was using the right facial wash, my problems were gone.

 

Well, I eventually ran out of all the free samples he had given me of the lotion and decided to pick some up at CVS.  They didn’t have the PM one in stock.  So I figured I would get the AM one…biiiiiig mistake.  My face started getting bad again!  Recently switched back to the PM version and I’m back in business.  It’s amazing what a difference it makes.  Who would have thought that the AM one would be too harsh for my face.

 

Moral of the store- It’s okay to use nighttime face lotions during the day!  Just keep in mind they don’t have an SPF in them!
