The Lovely Things

Hello there!! hope every one is having a lovely Monday!! I know I am and not because I'm back to work again but because today I am getting my hair colored!! How exciting!! Also getting it trimmed a tad because it is to the point where it almost touches my butt! (not really). I have really been thinking about cutting short but then I think back and how hard and how loooong it took for it to grow out that I really thing not. I have to enjoy it long for some time and maybe in about a year try the short again. What say you? are you one of those who is constantly changing their hairstyle? If you are good for you! you are one brave one!!!alright here are a few Lovely Things!

hair do of the week!!!

[/tagline] I love this braid!! I really wish I could do this to my hair but my hair being so thick it makes it impossible to hold. I think every girl should braid their hair at least once a week or as many times as possible. (media via stylebristo.com) [tagline]

Healthy Lunch

[/tagline] Do you go to lunch every day and regret what you had??? I do. I never seem to eat the right meal for lunch and no matter how many times I tell myself I will do better tomorrow I never do. So starting today I will start with this sandwich from Fitness Magazine TM&BWRAP [tagline]

Beauty - Lizzy Caplan

Lizzy+Caplan Lizzy+CaplanKGI0lUYZIVcx

remember Lizzy Caplan?? Yes, from Mean Girls. I have always though she is gorgeous and here is the proof. I think that my next hair style will be this one. I love her hair and her bangs I think are the best. She rocks them so well and I am not sure I am ready to go into bangs phase again. I mean I have quite a small forehead and a round face so I am pretty sure I am not suited for this cut as she is.

I swear I can just stare at that first photo and stare. LOVE the hair, like I have already mentioned. Alright not let me mention her brows, are they perfect or what??? most certainly perfect. Did I forget to mention her outfit?? Well what can I say...perfect 100% perfect... (images via zimbio.com)

Obsessed - Jessica Hart

jessihahart1Jessica Hart...where to begin with my new acquaintance I think she is a model but I am not sure. I usually don't read the caption because my eyes are too busy observing her impeccable style. Jessica really knows how to get it done right. Style is her last name, Effortless is her name..enough said jessicahart2 [tagline]

Beauty - Face

 

 

I do not consider myself a beauty expert but I have to share this product with you. St. Ives Timeless Skin certainly is the best beauty product I've ever purchased. I've always had a problem trying to find a moisturizer that works with my skin and I can finally say I've found one that truly does justice to its name.

Of course, is not only moisturizer that makes my skin better every day, but keeping it fresh through the day and at night I do not forget to completely remove my makeup. I remove my makeup with cleansing wipes. Even though I have removed my makeup with wipes I always wash my face with soap to feel more fresh and clean.

After this little process before going to bed I apply my moisturizer St Ives Timeless Skin. This cream moisturizes my skin and keeps it moisturized throughout the day. Also, just a few days after starting to use it I noticed how soft my skin was and the visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.[tagline]images via drugstore.com[/tagline]

 

This is my go to bar soap, which I absolutely love.  I think that for the longest time I was using body soar to wash my face and I kept breaking out I could never understand why!? The frustration was horrible and while I was shopping for a tinted moisturizer I asked for a bar soap for my face because already too late I came to the conclusion that it was the body soap doing this to my already too irritated face.

So the nice lady helping me couldn't believe I was using body soap to wash my face... yeah I could feel that warmth in my cheeks... I was filled with embarrassment.  So it was the soap... she gave me a few options but I was not willing to pay $$$ for a bar of soap! I said "no thanks".

Kiss my Face really works wonders! and I will be honest the scent is not the best but it really moisturizes your skin whilst cleansing it too!

Tom & Cara

take-two-07_142715531381 hmm look at that... I have a tiny crush! Tom is the most amazing actor out there in my opinion. The guy can really act and that voice just melts you (it surely melts me!). When I saw this editorial in Vogue I was so pleased with the photographs and the model (Cara). I loved the story and the scenery as well as their attire. Tom sure looks fine... so does Cara ;) take-two-04_142712757496
