What's the silliest thing you've done in the name beauty #burymemondays

Confess! Confess! What’s the silliest thing you’ve done in the name beauty? Back in my relaxers days I’d would get an updo on a weekend and then sleep propped up just so in an effort to the keep the style intact until Monday. There’s nothing like nodding in and out of sleep hoping your bump or curls don’t get flattened.

So tell me a silly thing you’ve done in the name beauty. Did you let a friend dye your hair to save a buck only to have it all go wrong? Did you buy makeup for the packaging knowing you’d never wear it? Let me know in the comments.

What Hair Product Should NEVER Be Discontinued? #BuryMeMondays

hair product discontinued

What hair product would absolutely devastate you if were discontinued? My product is Oyin Handmade’s Burnt Sugar and Sugar Berries Pomade. Before I cut my hair it made my twistouts everything and now that my hair is brush length I still use it regularly when I want my waves to be on swim. :-)

Make A Beauty Resolution for 2014

2013 will be coming to a close in a couple of weeks. Someone has probably asked you about your New Year’s resolution or they will be asking very soon. Our answers will range from mundane to exceptional. And I hope when 2014 comes to a close we’ll look back proudly on the accomplishments that were set into motion at the end of 2013. But what about a beauty resolution? Have you thought about making one for yourself?

2014 could be the year you watch Youtube videos until you get that contouring thing right. Or you could branch out and try a brand(drugstore or high-end) you usually pass up when you’re browsing. This could be the year you tackle one of your beauty fears like getting professionally waxed. You could even resolve to set aside time to pamper yourself or *gasp* limit your purchases.

"Girl what? Limit my purchases?

The sky is really the limit with this and you don’t have to tell anyone unless you want to. This is really about making a conscious effort to not get a beauty rut and take care of yourself. I think most of us know what we need/want to do, but we just have to give ourselves the freedom to do it and put in the effort.

One of the things I’d like to do is find a less pink nude lipstick to wear as an alternative to the pinkish nude Nars Dolce Vita. I’m very fond of the beigey nude look and I’d like to see if it I can pull it off. There’s always the possibility that I can’t, but I have to give it a shot right? And that’s what I’m talking about, going out on your own limb for beauty.

So do you have beauty resolution?
