Makeup Monday: What’s in my makeup bag?

Jun 18, 2014   //   by Rory Tunbridge   //   No Comments

Since I started my Invisalign treatment, I’ve been playing around with my normal makeup routine, so it’s time for me to update you on what’s currently in my makeup bag. For those of you who missed my last posts (read those posts here), I’m currently receiving complimentary Invisalign treatment in exchange for sharing my experience, once a month (full disclosure here).

After years of being a statement lip girl, I decided to try out giving my eyes the full treatment – at least some of the time. I actually used to be a statement eye girl (never without a smokey or vivid eye), but after having some sensitivity issues, I switched to the lips and scarcely looked back.

Erika’s Summer Beauty Must Haves

Jun 15, 2014   //   by Gabriella Conybeare   //   No Comments

Summer is a wonderful time to show off glowing skin, white pants, and colorful sundresses — but the heat can also be difficult to maintain your makeup throughout the day. As the temperatures slowly rise, Ive realized over time that some of my favorite winter beauty products tend to melt, just like ice cream on a hot day.

After endless trials with different cosmetics and hair care, Ive finally created a list of some of my favorite summer beauty products — these items not only look amazing on the skin, but also help to reduce shine, prevent smudging and give a radiant glow! I hope that some my favorite beauty products help you to find that perfect waterproof mascara to last during beach days, or a cheek stain to give your face long-lasting and flawless color! Her

Summertime is here, meaning its time to start working on that tummy, follow this fun infographic guide to slimming the mid-section this season.

Carbs: Carbs cause a spike in your blood sugar levels, could cause your energy levels to spike and plummet, disrupting your sleep in the process. Avoid cake, cookies and other desserts as well as carby snacks like crackers or white bread and munch on an apple instead.

Salt: Avoid too much salt in the diet. Salt lies hidden in canned foods, baked foods, cured meats and how can we forget, potato wafers. Salt can draw water from the body and thereby give you the sluggish, flabby look.

Sugar Substitutes: A few of the sugar substitutes such as xylitol, maltitol are found in low sugar or sugar free products.
