Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth

*You can enter to win a free whitening kit at the end of this post! “You have such a beautiful smile!” That is the best compliment you can receive, in my opinion. When I was growing up, my smile wasn’t exactly “beautiful” by conventional standards. I had big front teeth, which I hadn’t exactly grown into. Plus, my teeth were crooked and rather discolored. It was one of those things that I would get made fun for of by the… Read more »

Top Five Makeup Tools You Should Have in Your Makeup Bag

Guest post by Hillary Kline As a self-proclaimed makeup junkie, I have to say, I’ve got a ton of beauty products. You need something to store those products in, right? So, you guessed it, I have multiple makeup bags. All shapes, all sizes, all patterns and colors, but what really counts is what is in those bags. You might be wondering what are the top things that I should have in my makeup bag? It wasn’t easy, but I narrowed… Read more »

mascara

Guest post by Emily Jannotta I love makeup. I have an extreme stash of pallets, foundation, blush, etc. You name it, I probably have it! I love all makeup, but my favorite part of makeup is mascara. There’s something about making lashes go from boring to bold that I love. I usually use two mascaras at once, because I don’t like to have subtle lashes. I like them to be black and bold. Long and volumized! Now I know not… Read more »

Meet Monica! She’s this month’s Featured Fashionista and a one-of-a-kind beauty blogger. Monica is especially talented at creating nail designs (you’ll see what I mean in a moment), but what really sets her apart is that many of her posts feature nail designs that are Rheumatoid Arthritis friendly! That’s pretty awesome in my opinion. Are you not sure what RA is or what an RA-friendly design would be? Monica is answering all of those questions in her Q&A below. Plus,… Read more »

Marie-France Group hair

You may remember me mentioning Marie-France Group a few weeks ago when I attended their One Year Anniversary VIP Party & Runway Show at their Walsh Bay location. (It was tons of fun!) They were also kind enough to invite me back for a haircut and style last week! I also had booked a color and conditioning treatment for my appointment. After years of bleaching and dyeing my hair, I’m trying to get back to my natural color and get… Read more »

Sharon-Lee brows

  There were a couple of things that happened with this year’s Oscars that had people talking. One was obviously the big Best Picture Award snafu. And another was the rumor that Leonardo DiCaprio allegedly flew an eyebrow artist 7,500 miles (from Sydney to LA) to have his brows perfect for the event. (At least that’s what we were talking about here in Sydney.) And that eyebrow artist was said to be Sharon-Lee Hamilton. While that may or may not… Read more »

longest lasting lipstick

While makeup is not the primary focus of my blog posts, I do wear lipstick for almost all my posts. And my previous try at a beauty post is actually what sparked the idea to do this one! I had many questions and comments about the lipstick I was wearing in my eyelash extension post. I also had a friend reach out to suggest I try a lipstick called LipSense. So, this post will be taking a look at all… Read more »

Novalash eyelash extension

I don’t usually dab into the beauty world at all on my blog, but I really wanted to talk about my experience with eyelash extensions today! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed I was in Minneapolis last weekend. This was because my friend Trina, the owner of Beyond Beautiful Salon, had invited me along while she taught a Novalash Eyelash Extension class in the city. Trina both applies the eyelash extensions at her salon and is one… Read more »

Red Hair

Shop the look:   I’ve been wanting to drastically switch up my hair color for a really long time, now. And this weekend I made a quick trip home to Wisconsin for a family wedding.. and while I was home, I also had the chance to visit one my best friends, who also happens to be my hair stylist. Trina from Beyond Beautiful Salon answered my hair prayers and transformed me into a redhead! Haha. And I LOVE it. I… Read more »

The seasons are changing and so is my hair. (Ha!) I’ve been a blonde for about 10 years, until this week. My good friend and stylist over at Beyond Beautiful Salon talked me into trying something different this time, and I’m sure glad she did. It was time for a change, my hair was getting rather see-through and damaged. I’m loving being a brunette, my hair seems so much thicker and shinier, but what do you think? Let me know… Read more »
