Searching for "DIY Beauty"

Coconut Oil For Healthier Nails & Cuticles

A few weeks ago, I gave up wearing acrylic nails, and one thing I’ve noticed is that my cuticles have dried out and I’m getting a lot of hangnails. DANG!!  I forgot how much they hurt! Not only do they catch on everything, but a few have gotten infected. Not fun!

So I decided to do a little research and tried out this simple beauty tip to keep your cuticles healthy and with fewer hangnails – I hope this tip helpful for you, as well!


Hydrating Avocado Oatmeal Facial Mask

Winter definitely has dried out my skin! With the heat running, and cold wind whipping my face, I’m starting to look a little ruddy! Well this DIY facial mask takes care of both the dryness and the redness! It’s all natural and takes 5 minutes to make!

Just be sure to lay down and relax while the mask is on your face – enjoy the moment! Don’t do what I had to do at the end of this video – go dig out all the sticky mess of the mask that dropped down my shirt!



Why I Am Going Naked For A Month

I have decided to go naked for a month, and I am glad I am doing it! Going “Au Naturel” is very freeing! Ditching acrylic nails has been a very positive experience so far. (Wait, what did you think I meant?) Having acrylic nails on & off for the last seven years, it was time to give my nails a breather.

I know. They aren’t very pretty right now. This was what they looked like immediately after I had them removed:


Right now, a week into not having acrylics, I’m dealing with super-sensitive nails and fingertips. I can’t reach into my purse to grab something without getting that “nails across a chalkboard” feeling. Cringe-worthy.  But I believe it will be worth it all in the end. Hopefully heathy, stronger nails.

If you have acrylic nails, why don’t you join me for a month? Send me your photos of your naked nails (NO OTHER naked pics, please! ?) at

Makeup Brushes – A Girl’s Best Friend! 

I use my makeup brushes every day. They are the tools of my trade! Years ago, when I started breaking out on my face, I realized that I needed to keep them clean. Turns out, the combination of old makeup and oils is just a breeding ground for germs!

So gather up a small bowl or cup, some baby shampoo and follow my easy steps for cleaning your makeup brushes!
