This innovative curling iron turns and grabs hair pulling it into a perfect curl around the barrel at the touch of a button.

Thankful for My Beautiful Flaws #BeautyAsIAM

bridesmaid photo

 

When ModlyChic mentioned hosting a series of posts having women write about how they are beautiful just as they are I was really excited, I wish more women could truly see just how beautiful they are. I gladly accepted the challenge but then when it came time to write all I could think of was all the things I loved about  my beauty pre-children and pre-Graves Disease. But that is exactly the point right? Finding the beauty where I am right now. So here goes….

As a teen I felt awkward and often uncomfortable in my own skin. In college I discovered a love of fashion and self. Then I had kids and my body changed a lot., but I was ok with that as it mostly went back to the same as before. Then I developed Grave’s Disease and my body changed even more. My skin changed, may hair changed and my moods changed. I no longer felt like me or that I knew my body at all. Products that once worked so well no longer did and things I knew about myself no longer held true. It was a long process of acceptance, surgery and medicines but I have gotten to know this new body and this new me, not that I don’t miss the old, but mourning the past is wasting the now so I choose to move on. Having an amazing man by my side has helped tremendously as has my faith.

I am thankful for my eyes and my long lashes. My eyes have always been my favorite feature and the thing I accented on my face. Then I was diagnosed with Graves Disease and started having all kinds of eye health issues. I could no longer wear contacts and  my eyes often appeared very irritated making me want to no longer draw attention to them. I have since made peace with my eyes and am back to loving them again, flaws and all. Some days it easier than others but finding peace with my appearance is what matters most.

I am thankful for my height. I am tall for a girl, I have been this tall since 6th grade where I towered over all the girls and most of the boys. I made peace with this years ago and it is still one of my favorite things, I love being tall and I even love wearing high heels. I just married a tall man who has no issue with my height even it I can be a smidge taller than him in really high heels.

I am thankful for my body in all it’s flaws. I have given birth to 5 little miracles and it has taken a toll on my body. Number 5 was not my friend and I started to gain the lasting physical marks of pregnancy. At first I really stressed about this especially the varicose veins, but I have come to accept them (embrace is a bit much). They are a reminder of the sacrifices I made to enrich my life so deeply with my amazing kids. I will never love them but I also don’t need to be ashamed of them. Just as I never give veins on legs a second glance on other women I trust they feel the same way about me. So I’ll keep wearing skirts veins and all and not give it a second thought.

Embracing your beauty exactly where you are can be a real challenge but I challenge you to do it anyway. Write your own post or just share in the comments what is beautiful about you? What beauty are you thankful for? I would love to hear so get sharing!

Younique Mascara for Sky High Lashes

younique lashes

 

I am sure you have heard of Younique Mascara by now, it’s the hot new beauty product that everyone is raving about so of course I had to try it. Younique Moodstruck 3D fiber Lashes are sold through independent sales reps like Kristen Youmans, who sent me a set to test out. I opened my package of Younique 3D Fiber mascara with no idea what to expect. I honestly thought it would be a tube of mascara that somehow magically lengthened even more than any other mascara before. I have seen the pictures everyone is posting and the results look amazing so I was excited to try.

 

younique lashes bottles

 

First of all I was shocked when I opened the package to find 2 tubes one of Transplanting Gel and one of Natural Fibers. I admit I was totally intimidated at first but once I read the directions and tried it they were super simple, the same as putting an extra coat of mascara on. You start by applying a layer of your own mascara and let it dry while you fix your hair. Then apply a coat of transplanting gel and before it dries apply some of the fibers. The key to applying the fibers is don’t go overboard and you will get a great natural look. Then add another layer of the transplanting gel to seal the fibers on. If you want to go even bigger you can repeat the process and get some very dramatic results.

BEFORE: This is mascara only

mascara only

 

AFTER: This is the same day after applying one thin layer of Younique 3D Fiber Mascara

 

younique mascara after

 

I have really sensitive eyes and have been impressed that I did not have to change my eye makeup removal routine at all, I still use Almay oil free makeup remover pads. Not only that but my mascara seems to come off easier and there is no mess of itty bitty fibers like I worried about.

 

younique mascara

 

I do not ever wear fake eyelashes but for those that do you can achieve the same look with out the discomfort and annoyance of false lashes. I often wear glasses and I find that I feel like you can truly see my eyes better now that my eyelashes pop even behind the glasses and that is huge for me. I have honestly become a bit addicted to Younique mascara, the other day I did not put it on and I looked in the mirror halfway through the day and thought my eyes look so small today. So if you are looking for a way to boost your eyelashes then check out Younique, the fibers are all natural made of green tea leaves and look really great. The only word of caution I have is you need to be careful of clumps if you have issues with regular mascara clumping be sure to have an eyelash brush on hand so you don’t create unnatural clumps with the fibers.

To order Younique simply go here and let me know your experience once yours arrives.

Protect Your Hair from Sun Damage #BeautyTip

nios shield hair logo picture

 

Has the idea of protecting your hair from sun damage ever even crossed your mind? For most women it hasn’t but think about it, when your little one gets blonde highlights or you notice your own hair is suddenly really dry and straw like during summer months its no coincidence. And what about when your little girl gets a sunburn on her scalp right along her piggy tail part? Sometimes its easier to notice these things in our kids because our mom radar picks them up but we don’t see them in ourselves. I know I always remember to put sunscreen on my kids at the pool, but me? Only about half the time do I actually get sunscreen on. Our hair and scalp need protection from the sun and most women don’t even consider that.

Just like you should wear an SPF on your face year round, using a lotion that has an SPF is a great way to do that, you should protect your hair year round too. Don’t worry I am not going to suggest you get your hair all greasy and rub sunscreen on your scalp instead check out hair products with built in SPF like Nios Shield. Nios Shield makes a leave in conditioner and a whipped gel both containing a built in SPF 15 sunscreen.

 

nios shield hair products

 

Nios Shield not only protects your hair and scalp but it leaves it nourished and healthy by adding Moroccan argan oil, wheat protein, and vitamins. In the past I have paid big bucks to have professional cellophane done to my hair which provides SPF and keeps your hair looking shiny and healthy, now I save my money and instead use Nios Shield leave in conditioner. The great thing about these products is the whole family can use them as they work on all hair types, men, women and kids.

You can purchase Nios SPF 15 Whipped Hair Gel and Nios SPF 15 Leave-In Conditioner on Amazon.

Beauty Tip: A Great Haircut Can Do Wonders

dressing your truth hair journey

As a mom I often get so wrapped up in taking care of others that I forget to take care of myself. While I think this is an admirable quality in mothers it can backfire in a big way. You must also take care of yourself or you will burn out and be no good to anybody, so in the spirit of rejuvenation I am sharing a simple way to boost your mood, and your looks… a great hair cute. So many women get stuck in hair ruts and they never do anything they love, just something safe. Well 2 years ago I took a dramatic step and I am so glad I did, I truly LOVE my hair for the first time in my life and it is was more flattering than anything I had before.

  • A good hair cut can go along way, this being said they are expensive so here are some ways to get a great haircut at a fraction of the cost.
    • Go to the training school of the salon. Many high end salons do more training with there new hires after they have  there license. So these are stylists that have completed cosmetology school and were hired by the salon but are undergoing training in this salons specific methods which means they are much cheaper than a stylist that has been with the company for 2 years and is at the regular salon. You can also request a stylist that is about to finish training to get an even better price. The 2 big salons in Columbus, Ohio are Kenneth’s and Charles Penzone’s. Kenneth’s also offers a referral program at there Academy $5 with each new customer you bring in which is nice.
    • Go to a cosmetology school itself. These stylists are not yet licensed but are supervised by an instructor and you can still get a great cut at an even cheaper price. A good one in my town is the Aveda Institute
  • Change up your look, even if you don’t want to drastically change you hair length there are lots of different styles you can do within one length that will give you a new feel. I find a new do can often get me out of a rut. If you are unsure on what will flatter your face look for photos of women with similar features or ask a trusted stylist. My current hairstyle by the amazing Dressing Your Truth ladies you can pay $39.99 and get  a online hair consult to fit your personality type I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this. Dressing Your Truth changed the way I think about dressing and especially your hair this was life changing, just check out my hair journey pictured above.

 

  • Wash your hair once a month with a cleansing mixture. For dark hair or red heads use equal parts water and apple cider vinegar. Rinse after shampoo but before you condition. For blondes use equal parts water and lemon juice. Both of these mixtures will strip all the hair product build up out and leave your hair squeaky clean. As an added bonus they will bring out your natural highlights red with the vinegar and blonde with the lemon juice.

 

I hope these tips help. Let me know what your hair tips are…

How to Protect Your Face from Premature Aging

Conversation Pieces $22

Conversation Pieces $22

 

I am constantly shocked at how many women do not wear sunscreen every day. The sun is out year round and doing damage constantly. So I am begging you please please please wear sunscreen everyday. Every major company makes a daily lotion or foundation that includes an SPF. Need a recommendation? How about Oil of Olay it is $9.99 at CVS and their is always a coupon out plus watch for ECB deals and stock up. It comes in various versions ( like normal, sensitive, oily) and has an SPF of 15 so you don’t have to worry about adding an extra step to your daily skincare routine. A word of caution though when summer comes and you are out in the sun longer you need something stronger. You can either switch your moisturizer to one with a stronger SPF or just buy some sunscreen specifically for your face, I love Neutrogena face sunscreen or Aveeno.

Don’t stop at your face be sure to apply under your eyes and use a chap stick with SPF in it. That’s right your lips can burn easily. You can also wear a hat when you know you will have prolonged sun exposure,I love my big white floppy straw hat for around the pool and it looks great too. Once you have done major sun damage their is no undoing it, plus who wants to age any faster than they are supposed to? So protect your skin and wear your sunscreen all day year round. Craving that summer tanned look? Here are a few tricks

  • lighten up your makeup, make your eyes lighter and your lips too it will give your face the appearance of being sun kissed
  • use a bronzer to fake the sun kissed look
  • use a good fake tanner ( all the models do it)
  • don’t worry you will still get some color wearing sun screen you will just get less damaging effects.
  • wear colors that flatter your skin and make it appear more sun kissed

The following is a sponsored post with Global Influence.

Sensitive skin can be a real pain when it comes to your beauty routine, for me I struggle with patches of dry and sensitive and patches of oily. How does one pick which to treat? If I focus on the oily then I end up with dry and scaly patches and if I focus on the sensitive area I end up with break outs in the oily areas! Plus I try not to use harsh chemicals, i amgetting older and my skin needs more love and attention than it did before.

There is a new product I am just learning about that is worth looking in to and bonus it is available at Walgreens just up the street. The product is Simple® Skin Care products and the collection contains Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizer, Simple Foaming Facial cleanser and New Simple® Nourishing 24-hour Day/Night Cream.

Amazing Hair Products from Jonathan

green rootine Jonathan

My hair has never smelled so good or felt so soft!

 

Maybe it’s the fact that is it 100% natural or maybe it is the amazing blend of Coconut Oil,  Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil and Orange Oil. Or maybe it is all of the above but whatever the reason I am in love with the Green Rootine hair care collection from Jonathan Products.  Every shower is like stepping into a high end spa, it actually takes me back to my visit to Calloway Gardens for Reviewers Retreat, my room was right near the spa entrance and the smells were amazing! Even if these products did nothing special for my hair I would still want them for the smell alone!

 

jonathan pure paste

 

But in all honesty beyond the smell they really work. My hair has never felt so healthy and soft, makes me wish I still had long hair to take advantage of these products. I have been using the  Green Rootine™ Nourishing Shampoo followed by the Green Rootine™ Nourishing Conditioner. I am also using the Green Rootine™ Styling Creme and Green Rootine™ Pure Paste™ to style my hair. I am really loving the light weight styling products and again the smell, oh my! I honestly would use the styling creme just to have the smell linger even if it did nothing, but it styles my hair great so I am happy! The paste offers the right amount of shine and texture for my short hair do and I love it!

 

jonathan dry dirt

 

Another great Jonathan product to check out is new Dry Dirt Texture Spray. The texture spray is 100% Vegan and contains NO mineral oil, synthetic color, DEA or MEA. This spray is perfect for that tossled look and like the other Jonathan products it is light weight and works well. This product adds great shine and is perfect when I want to take my look to the next level kind of a day to night thing! After trying this I really want to try the Dirt Texturizing Paste it says it gives you the day after wash look and that is when my hair is best! I love my showers too much to give up a daily shower but achieving the look of not washed everyday would be perfect! Be sure to check out all the great natural hair care products from Jonathan Products!

It’s Valentine’s Day and if you are like me the idea of donning a dress is daunting, my legs have been wrecked by winter.  While laziness is the main culprit of my dry scaley legs, the cold weather has not helped any. Well I have great news, you can get your fabulous legs back and fast, all you need are two things a great bath loofah and Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer.

 

spray and go vaseline lotion

 

So it really is that simple, while in the shower gently exfoliate your legs. If your legs are really bad use a true loofah, and if only mild or you have sensitive skin like me, use a mesh version. Then step out of the shower, dab yourself dry, no rubbing to irritate, and spray. That’s right I said spray, spray on the revolutionary lotion from Vaseline. To apply, spray up your leg, switch hands, spray down your leg, and then rub in. Voila that’s it you have cleaned up your legs  and moisturized in about 30 seconds because your lotion only takes 10 seconds to absorb.

date night makeup

 

As winter drags on I have been needing a change and I found it in some new makeup. With Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted a great new makeup look for this special day but since I also wanted new clothes I needed my makeup to fit my budget. Walgreens had everything I needed to create the perfect date night look for Valentine’s Day. Over the last few weeks I have been sharing my makeup tips like wearing your new look outside in natural light to make sure you truly like it and adding a base layer to help your eyeshadow last, and today I have a new makeup tutorial for this great date night look.

Start with a great foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly. I absolutely love Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging skintone matching makeup, it comes out of the tube white and instantly blends in, it is brilliant. I love how light it feels on my skin yet it offers a great evening of the skintone. For covering up my under eye tired mom bags I love Rimmel Match Perfection, another great skintone matching product that conceals my lack of sleep perfectly.

  • Always start with a base layer, I like Covergirl Shineshadow in Ice Queen
  • Then using Covergirl Dramaeyes #222 coat your whole eye in the light grey color
  • Apply the maroon color to the outer half of your lid
  • Add a light dusting of  the black over the maroon
  • Line your eyelids with L’oreal Intense Eyeliner in very black , just the upper lids, with eyeliner
  • Apply 2 coats of the Covergirl Bombshell Volume Mascara

  • L’Oreal Paris has this fun lipgloss combination where you add the gloss first, then seal it with a chapstick that moisturizes, I chose terracotta red.
  • Covergirl Cheekers in Iced Cappucino is my life long standard for blush and I still love it

Finish your look by curling your lashes with an eyelash curler warmed with your hair dryer and voila you are ready for the perfect Valentine’s Day date.

Beauty Tip: Add A Base Layer

flawless eyeshadow

 

I admit I usually buy more expensive eye shadow and rarely use drugstore brands. For whatever reason drugstore eyeshadow fades on me, by mid-day there is no color left and it is all in my crease. For that reasons I have spent more, but recently I found the cure by adding a base layer…..

Recently I did a video tutorial on the new Covergirl Bombshell collection which includes the new shine shadow. I have been using the ice queen shine shadow as a base under my eyeshadow daily and my Covergirl shadow has stayed perfect all day long. I love the ice queen color as it brightens up my eyes and erases my exhausted mom look by adding a white color and some sparkle.

So instead of pitching all that drugstore eye shadow or breaking the bank on more expensive stuff pick up a base layer like Covergirl shine shadow and see how great your eyeshadow looks all day long.

How to Look Red Carpet Ready Without Breaking the Bank! #RedCarpetGlam #CleverGirls


It’s award show season and that means we all get to ooh and ahh over the seemingly perfect celebrities. They have silky smooth legs and white teeth with shiny perfect hair, it can be so frustrating to feel like that look is not attainable. Don’t get me wrong I have no desire to be a celebrity or even look like one but I love to look my best. Sadly I am not on the same budget as celebrities but that doesn’t mean I can’t look great. Here are a few of my favorite products found at the drugstore that will help you look red carpet ready for a fraction of the cost!

razor

 

Silky Smooth Legs:

Ever since having kids my legs are super sensitive and I can not use just any old razor. The Gillete Venus and Olay Razor is one of the few razors I can use that will not cause razor burn on me. This razor combines 5 blades with Olay moisture bars to achieve a smooth shave that does not irritate, combine that with Olay Sensitive Body Wash and my skin thanks me with  healthy shine!

 

vidal sassoon

 

Shiny Hair:

I am forever on the quest for shiny hair and for awhile that meant getting a cellophane treatment at the salon, but that was expensive. Now I use Pantene Damage Detox Weekly Rehab Crème to keep my hair from drying out and looking dull. Just apply in the shower and let sit before rinsing out, easy, quick and affordable! As an added protection I spray Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat & Protect Shine Spray in my hair daily before I blow dry it keeping damage to a minimum.

 

White Teeth:

I am forever chasing the dream of white teeth, sadly my love for Dr.Pepper keeps white teeth at bay. Before my wedding I used Crest 3D Professional White Whitestrips to whiten my teeth and the results were amazing. For a long time after that I only drank dark pops through a straw and avoided other teeth staining food and drinks. Well I fell back into old habits and my teeth got yellow again. Recently I stopped drinking my beloved Dr.Pepper (my nursing baby could not stand the carbonation) and I am excited to once again achieve white teeth with the help of Crest!

All of these products are affordably priced and can be found at your local drugstore and if you want a Bombshell look try Covergirl makeup! I have been using the Covergirl Bombshell collection for awhile now, check out my video tutorial with the new Bombshell collection for a great red carpet ready look.
