Hooray! Hooray!! Hooray!!! After multiple tech issues, I can get back into my blog. I’m not gonna lie though. I did enjoy that break! Anyway. Here is the blog post I promised a few weeks ago on Himalayan Sole. I can honestly say that I do feel a difference in my body on the days that I drink it versus the days I do not. You may recall that I have collapsed arches in my feet. I wake up with horrible stiff and painful feet. One glass of this in the morning and I feel invigorated and the pain is gone. Check out the blog below to see another one of my self care tips.
FTC: I paid for this Walmart Beauty Box myself. This is an honest review.
I love the items I received in my Winter 2014 Walmart Beauty Box. This box is one of the cheapest beauty boxes around because you only get charged $5 for shipping and handling four times a year. So four boxes are $20! Most beauty boxes will cost you $20 or more for one box. I could use or enjoy most of the items. I do have a problem with some of the samples. I can’t really use them because they are for lighter skin tones. 🙁 Oh well. check out my unboxing video, and let me know what you think in the comments.
I was at my friend’s house recently, and the conversation turned to filling in eyebrows. Even though my friend has great brows, I suddenly realized that filling in your eyebrows can become somewhat of a scary art school project, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Thankfully GossMakeupArtist came up with a great tutorial for filling in your eyebrows that is easy peasy lemon squeezy. Check it out!
Zana Bayne’s style, blog, and leather harnesses have always been enviable. She is so cool, that I even studied her blog as part of my fashion blogging class’ curriculum. That’s deep, right? Well now she has released the video lookbook for her new line of leather harnesses. The red ones have caught my eye. Which ones do you fancy?
This is an awesome diy for those interested in tinkering with the denim vest. I would love to do this to a white denim jacket. I might have to get on that pronto.
Now that I know how to sew and use a sewing machine, I should probably learn how to tailor my shirts and make a dressform. This tutorial should come in handy.
I would have posted this video last week, but I was on total holiday mode. I think the Carmakoma video is visually stunning and has an amazing message. I think the message is great for woman of all sizes, even though it is coming from a plus size clothing line. How many times have we been judged by the little number inside our clothes? It is ridiculous. Check out this awesome video.
Boost your carma Size is a number – confidence is a choice
Carmakoma’s new film ”Boost your carma” is a vivid illustration of the curvy woman of today. Check it out here!
”The main character in the film is like the carmakoma woman. She feels free in her body, uninhibited by other people’s opinions. With an understated decadence she is playing with the forbidden showing her bold femininity and her urge for life in a sophisticated and extremely sexy manner,” says Heidie Lykke and Angelica Weiss, the two women behind carmakoma.
The film is created as a visual collage with a boost of feelings, states of mind, actions and expressions. The carmakoma woman likes challenges and to explore herself. However, she finds calmness and strength from inside. All of these qualities makes her beauty radiate. The gorgeous styles on her body establishes a balance between her inner and outer expression og you are not in doubt about her identity. She is a pioneer who is not afraid to use her femininity in her stride forwards. Like a modern Marilyn Monroe
In a celebration of the curvy woman the film is inspired by Helmuth Newton’s classical and iconic fashion frames and an observing and sensual camera posture like the filmic portrait of “the perfect human” by the Danish film maker Jørgen Leth.
