Rethink Your Hair Color Tutorial

A couple of week’s ago I discussed John Frieda Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ products. (You can check out the post here.)  This product line is designed to help you easily and affordable lighten your brunette hair color at home.  My hair color is medium to dark brown; I say that because my hair is dark, but I’ve always had some natural strands of blonde mixed in.  When I was younger I embraced this by getting highlights at the salon.  But as I discussed in my previous post, each time I went to the salon, I had to get heavier highlights (in order to really see the effect), till I eventually looked more like a blonde than a brunette.  (And I’m talking about a blonde with dark roots and all, once my hair started growing.)  Needless to say, this isn’t what I wanted, so I stopped getting highlights.

Since then, I’ve considered getting highlights again, but I hate the thought of spending $70 to get them, so I was very excited to hear about John Frieda Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™.  Today I’ll be discussing the results that I got from using the products, and I’ve also got a tutorial for straightening curly hair.

Gold Toe Socks

 

When I’m wearing the right outfit, I love a pair of sandals just as much as the next lady, but most days, I’m a sock girl!  Basically if you were ever to stop by my house unannounced, you can pretty much bet that you will find me in my socks!  I just can’t walk around barefooted, and I’ve really never been able go sock-less.  Even when I was a kid I couldn’t stand to go swimming or do any outdoor activity without something on my feet.

Shopping for a Good Cause: Breast Cancer Awareness

BreastCancerLogo2

It’s October, which means a lot of people and places will Go Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Will you?

For me, the easiest way to go pink is to buy Breast Cancer Awareness merchandise.  I especially like to buy apparel, because the money you spend on the products will support Breast Cancer Awareness, and then you can give further support by wearing what you bought.  And with the weather finally feeling fallish, I’m wanting to buy some new clothes anyway, so why not shop and make a difference in support a good cause?

Go Pink Sweatshirt

The Breast Cancer Site Store offers stylish items to help you show your support.  This includes great apparel like the sweatshirt above, but also includes pink ribbon jewelry and gifts.  I found a lot of great shirts and shoes that I’d love to wear.  And there are so many cute bracelets and necklaces to wear or give as gifts.

Make Valentine’s Special with Earrings Featuring Swarovski Elements

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mont Bleu for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Jewelry is the quintessential gift for Valentine’s Day.   Most women love it; it is an easy thing to find, and you can generaly get something to fit any budget.  Earrings especially make a great gift, because you don’t have to worry about sizing or even styling as much as you do with necklaces and bracelets.

Design Glassware has a fine selection of crystal earrings, featuring Swarovski Elements.  I love Swarovski Elements!  They are so bright, shiny, and full of color, and the pieces always have a high quality look.

Design Glassware has their items handmade by Mont Bleu in Europe.

Their Stud earrings with crystals come in some beautiful colors, including birthstones, and they come in a number of shapes, including, round, square, and butterfly.  I personally love the vintage rose color, as well as the aquamarine, turquoise, vintage gold, and garnet.

They also have these in a couple of dangle earring designs, which I absolutely love.  And these are perfect for someone who wants something bigger than the simple stud earrings.

The other great thing about jewelry made with Swarovski Elements that is that it is very versatile and can be worn with anything from an evening gown to a Sunday dress, or a simple blouse and pair of jeans.

Their Stud earrings with crystal pearls are small and dainty and come in a variety of beautiful colors to match any outfit, and they would be a perfet gift for anyone, regardless of style preference.
