Mistakes that blondes need to know!

A lot of people use Moroccan oil for their hair.  Personally, I rather use argan oil or coconut oil but that's besides the point.. Unfortunately, being blonde and using M oil is that it makes your hair very brassy!  So keep your paws off this oil if you want gorgeous looking blonde hair that looks like you just walked out of a salon.

Another great tip for staying blonde is using a purple shampoo.  Everytime I shower I use my personal favourite, Clairol shimmering lights.  I only keep  it in for 2 minutes though so you don't walk out looking like Grimace!.  Just keeps it looking gorgeous and platinum until my next hair app!

Banish those lines!

So we all have to deal with aging sooner or later.  Luckily, there IS a way to looking youthful longer! 


Obviously we need lots of anti-oxidants which I apparently don't get enough of, lots of rest, meditation and deep breathing to keep your blood pressure and stress down, healthy eating and lots of exercise.  


Well what can we do to personally keep our skin looking healthy?  Lots of moisturizing, my preference throughout my body and my face would be using coconut oil and jojoba oil.  I NEVER touch anything that is not natural anymore for my skin.  So get rid of all that expensive skin care garbage you have.  You don't need any of it!!


For fine lines or even the areas you know will be sensitive to aging apply cold-pressed castor oil (found at whole foods, health food stores) onto the area(s) once a night massaging just a tiny bit into the area. 


I assure you, you will be impressed.

One of the best mascaras!

It's called THEIR REAL by benefit.  I buy it from sephora.  You can even mix and match with other mascaras for ultra volume.  Such as with buxom lash.  http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P289307&categoryId=B70
