Beauty stuff (GTT)



Beauty secrets revealed! *snort*

  • Sexy bras! Sexy bras can do a lot for you. Not only do they make you feel beautiful, but they put those bad boys (or girls, as it were) exactly where they should be-picked up and perky! And men (and women!) love a sexy bra, even if it ends up on the bedroom floor in 4.2 seconds.
  • When I don't want my naturally curly fuzzy/clusterfuck hair, I use a Chi flat iron. I promise you it is worth the cost. I had a cheap one for awhile, and omg, it was so frustrating!
  • Closely related: Turn Up the Heat Protection Spray This stuff works great! A little goes a lonnnnng way. It smells like cotton candy, it makes my hair shiny, and it protects it from all that Chi heat. Suggestion: spray it on your hands and work it through your hair.
  • Beauty Snob-I might not be able to afford many (or any!) of the beauty ideas they discuss, but I love it anyway!
  • Sephora- I truly never thought I would be a beauty whore, but I love this place! I love trying new things, little samples, a shiny lip gloss, etc. The free samples & great deals help too.
  • White eyeliner-I use it in the corners of my eyes (outer and inner) and under my lower lashes. I smudge it with my finger. It helps me look a bit more ALIVE on those mornings after being up all night with the sassy girl.
  • MOISTURIZE! Once in the morning, and twice at night!
  • I don't ever fake bake my face. I use bronzer. I love this one and this one. They both look natural, feel light on my skin, and don't clog my pores.
  • All bullshit aside, here's a big one: Trying to accept myself just the way I am. Loving the skin I'm in, taking care of myself the best I can, and being comfortable with myself. It's HARD, don't get me wrong, and I will be the first person to list the things I want to change on my body (jelly belly, waistline, shitty skin on face), but every day, I work at looking at the positives (eyes, smile(NOT teeth), boobs *rolls eyes*), and accentuating those things.
And....there's my useless post for the day. ;)

I'm on my second Chi iron and I'll never use any other kind! The second one I got on Ebay so it wasn't as expensive as the first one! (It was brand new and still in the box of course!)

I agree with you on the not-cheap flat iro - although I got a Croc as suggested by my stylist and love it (it's wet/dry and got in Overstock.com). Also, I want to smell like cotton candy!

Sephora overwhelms me. There is too much to look at and see and touch. I have no idea where to start. I let someone talk me into buying lip plumper. Lip plumper. I'm bah-lack! Why the eff would I need my lips any bigger?

I bought the cheap flat iron and have already abandoned it. Sigh. Why didn't I listen?

As for the last item, well, I hope to one day get to where you are with regard to self-acceptance. Most days, I feel so far away from that point.

Self-acceptance is way hot, for sure. & *hugs* for the aspects that aren't as well-loved.

PS my word is hymanter. Awesome.

Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy High frequency machine cheap and Rf radio frequency skin tightening machine in USA. I'm choosing between Advance-esthetic.com and Advance-esthetic.us websites.
