Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I have a super easy hair tutorial video for you. I wore this Fabric Braided Crown hairstyle in a couple posts and think that this hair-do is just perfect for a fall. If you have long hair and don't like to deal with the crazy wind, this would be the perfect style for you. Plus I kind of feel like this will go perfect with the 60's trend this fall.

Today's post is about these cute shoes. These cute little shoes have been around for some time and people are still searching for them. You'll see them in magazines, a lot of fashion blogs, and movie stars wearing them. I have a pair in apricot and absolutely love them. I got mine online at Milanoo. Below are some similar, but they're a hundred times less expensive than the real Valentino's. Don't miss the opportunity on such an amazing steal and shop them by clicking on the links below!
Aging – it’s something that each and every one of us inevitably has to deal with. It only stands to reason that the older you become, the more diligent and dedicated you’re going to have to become when it comes to keeping your skin beautiful and healthy. As you start to notice the first visible signs of aging, you’ll need to become more religious in regards to your skincare routine. As we all know some aging is influence generically, but actually they say it's only about 30%, the rest is all on us. Take care of yourself - improve your health and skin! Clean up your diet and eat about 5-7 servings of fruit and vegetable every day. If you're like me, busy all the time, blend it and drink it! Look for ways to add more physical activity into your everyday life. I don't exercise because my life is to hectic, but I stay on my feet a lot. I'm constantly doing something, working, playing with my son, swimming with my son, getting ready for my next post ( planning, organizing, shooting photos/ videos..), cooking almost everyday (healthier than eating out), doing housework, and I can go on and on. Just do anything what requires you to move! Stop drinking and smoking is also a big one for great, healthy looking skin! Now, I don't smoke and I don't even drink! I've never been big fan of alcohol, so staying away from it is not hard for me. Limit sun exposure - this one is the hardest for me! I'm living in Florida and my son is an outdoors kid, so I'm exposed to the sun pretty much at least 4-6 hours each day. That's where cosmetics products come in play for me. I started looking into anti-aging creams a couple of years ago, and in my opinion some really work. Today, I would like to introduce you to this amazing SOBO product. Just to let you know I'm in love with their cream! Sobo is giving 25% discount on all SOBO product with code TRYSOBO at checkout. http://www.soboskincare.com
Light but intense serum formula delivers a powerful wrinkle-fighting cocktail that includes resveratrol, squalene, and hyaluronic acid to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 50% within just 28 days. Soothing, all-natural jojoba oil and apricot kernel oil work together to moisturize and smooth for a healthy, youthful glow and drastically improved overall appearance.
What It Does: Works to noticeably reduce the appearance, volume, and depth of wrinkles. Visibly minimizes the effects of aging and acts to soften the texture of skin for a younger, healthier look.
Dermatology researchers have found that topical resveratrol possesses 17-fold greater antioxidant potency than idebenone, an expensive and powerful antioxidant drug used in many anti-aging creams.
What It Does: Penetrates deeply into the structure of skin to promote optimal epidermal cell regeneration. Also works to boost skin’s essential immune functions while keeping it smooth and fully hydrated.
Ultra Concentrated Anti-Aging Eye Serum http://www.soboskincare.com/product-p/anti-aging-eye-serum.htm What It Does: Works to prevent and minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and puffiness around the eyes. Also acts to protect skin around the eyes from damage while promoting fast, thorough healing from damage or medical procedures.
The Power of Ceramide 3
Ceramides are naturally occurring skin lipids and are the major structural components of the skins outer structure. These ceramides make up 35-40% of the lipids in the extracellular matrix. With age we lose some of these essential ceramide molecules, which makes the skin permeable to moisture, leaving skin dry, rough and itchy. Ceramide 3 replenishes the loss of these vital skin lipids, enhancing moisture and leaving skin smooth and supple.
This rich and effective cream combines everything your skin needs to look and feel its absolute best in one convenient product. Powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories work together to fight aging and relieve the effects of stress on skin. Rich emollients work to return dehydrated skin to the peak of smoothness and glory. A suite of vitamins, nutrients, and essential oils work together with replenishing hyaluronic acid and retinol to promote a healthful, vibrant appearance.
What It Does:Works to renew and replenish skin, offsetting the effects of aging and stress. Restores dry skin to optimal hydration levels, as well as softens and smooths, improving overall appearance and feel.

Burgundy and leopard is huge again this fall. Since I'm a big fan of both I was happy to style them with this fabulous top. I found this top in a local store call Lotus. It was my first time in, but if I hadn't already bought enough that day I probably would've left a fortune there. Lotus is located in the Destin Commons and has a variety of items for fun, casual and stylish women.
Today's post is going to be long and is all about beauty, so get yourself a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!
I was so excited to be able to review Makeup by ONE DIRECTION in exchange for a free product for myself and also for 25 of you guys (GIVEAWAY ON THE END)! One Direction lunched their makeup product in the U.S. in August and will be available worldwide.
US RELEASE DATES:
Macy's - August 11th Stage Stores - August 25th Dillards - August 25th Beauty Brands - August 25th Lord and Taylor - August 25th
The Looks Collections comprises three keepsake tins inspired by One Directions globe-conquering albums, Up All Night, Take Me Home and the latest chart topper, Midnight Memories. Each tin comes complete with everything you need to show off your personality. Are you a rock n' roll girl, fun party girl or the girl next door? A range of makeup and cosmetic products celebrating youth, style, and the uninhibited lifestyle of a new generation. Celebrating life with bold shades, unique formulae and infused with limited edition collectable packaging, Makeup from One Direction is fun, bold, often irreverent, with a touch of cheeky mischievousness. Offered at prices that every girl and woman can afford.
I got my hands on the MIDNIGHT MEMORIES set which has an eyeshadow palette, a lipstick, a lipgloss, a chubby eyeliner, mascara, nail polish and stencils. I'm wearing the makeup in all of these pictures bellow and must say that I'm pretty impressed with it! My first impresion was, "Oh, this makeup has some bold, bright colors in it, and I won't be able to wear this on an everyday basis". As you can see in the photos I was totally wrong! Their makeup is amazing, and even though the colors look like a disco ball, the makeup goes on very light.
EYE SHADOW PALETTE
The silver shimmer is almost not noticeable with one layer unless you're standing in the sun, or apply a thick layer of it. I love that the eye shadow palette comes with gray and black to create a smoky eye, and pink to smooth it down. I applied all the colors as you can see in the picture. I used the light white as a base, pink under my eyebrows and around eye corner, silver in the middle of my eyelid and gray with black into my eye crease for some drama. Overall the eye shadow palette is pigment-rich, creamy and absolutely amazing!
LIPSTICK / LIP-GLOSS
Best song ever - bright, creamy red lipstick. This lipstick is very creamy, therefore easy to apply! I'm not huge on bright red lips and wish that this kit comes with a more natural lipstick, or slight pink to match with the pink eye shadow on the palette.
One of the highlights is Lquilights Glow Gloss in the shade of pink. Lipgloss is fabulous, very creamy with a kind of sweet smell to it, and is UV-reactive and will glow under black light! I absolutely love this lipgloss!!!
This kit comes with metallic and silver glitter flakes, dark gray nail polish. One layer of this stunning color is about medium light, and I have on two layers in the picture. I was surprised how quickly this nail polish dried and how long it lasted without chipping. Polish usually last 1-2 days on my nails because I work a lot with my hands, but this one started chipping on day three, and I didn't even have a top coat on. In my opinion this nail polish is equal to O.P.I., if not better!
CHUBBY EYE AND BODY CRAYON/ STENCILS
Crayon glides on smoothly, but for me is to chunky to apply as an eyeliner. For the ones who love chubby eyeliner this would be the perfect crayon. I would prefer to use it as an eye shadow or body art! The Midnight Memories kit comes with few stencils laying inside small, black paper box. I love the designs and if I owned a gold eyeliner you would probably see me applying some of the designs in gold either on my neck, face or arms!
"Little Black Dress mascara" is how it's called. This mascare will darken up and define your lashes! The wand is great and doesn't make your lashes stick together when applying it! After a whole day of wearing this mascara, my lashes stayed the same without loosing any color on the top, but I had a little smear under my lower eye lid. Overall I'm happy to have this mascara because it will doll up your lashes and that's what I'm looking for!
I'm very pleased with this kit. One Direction makeup is meant to be for teenage girls, but with the right amount of mixing these colors I think anyone can wear this fabulous makeup! I know I will!!!
The tins retail for $28.50, which is just under $5 for each makeup item in the kit.
Let's get to the exciting part! Even if you're not sure this makeup is the one for you, I'm pretty sure there's someone in your family or maybe just a friend who would absolutely love this product. So go ahead and enter this fabulous Giveaway!
