Dyeing Purple Coontail Streaks in my Hair!! Video Tutorial

I recorded this from my iPad again (: YAYYYY i'm so happy with the results!! They're kind of hidden in my middle layer, and not very visible unless under direct sunlight, but I can't wait to bleach a strand in the front and do another coontail!!

Diorshow Extase Mascara Review

OMG. This is the best mascara I have ever used. This magic little thing gives incredible length and definition to my (almost nonexistent) lashes. The formula is not too wet and not too dry, and the brush is brilliant. I love how it separates my lashes so well.

Take a look at the before and after pics:




My only discontentment with this product is that it smudges after a few hours, especially if I'm doing something that makes me perspire.  I like to put a small coat of Maybelline's The Falsies Waterproof mascara over it, so that it becomes, well, waterproof, and so that it doesn't smudge as much. However, like I said in this video, I hate The Falsies by itself.

Pravana Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment Review

My sister lent this to me a while ago, and I just noticed it last week, still sitting on my bathroom counter untouched. My mini-obsession of finding leave-in conditioners and treatments and masks had long since disappeared, but I decided to try this since it was just sitting there, "not doing nothing." I was pleasantly surprised!

Website claims:

This multi-purpose lightweight detangler provides 12 ways to perfect hair. Includes PRAVANA's proprietary Naturceutical Complex™. An added bonus: it can be used to set makeup with a light mist and moisturizes skin for the closest shave!

Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment benefits:
1. Instantly detangles
2. Provides deep hydration
3. Equalizes hair porosity
4. Protects hair during thermal styling
5. Helps repair split ends
6. Protects hair color
7. Gives hair shine
8. Eliminates effects of static electricity
9. Soothes irritated skin
10. Effective Pre-color treatment
11. Lessens effects of chlorine
12. A perfect hair cutting lotion for salon stylists

Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment 3.4 oz
10.1 oz

I'm not quite sure if I would spray this on my face to set my makeup and we all know that it is impossible to repair split ends (see my video on hair growth about that), but other than those two claims, I concur with all the other benefits, especially the first and 6th. It's the most magical hair detangler I've ever used, far more superior than any other I've tried previously (L'oreal one, a Rusk one, and a Kronos one). It leaves my hair feeling free of any knots or tangles, completely smooth, without making it feel wet or oily.

4.5 out of 5 stars!

It also currently has 8 out of 8 five star reviews on Amazon!
The 10.1 oz bottle is currently only $10 on Amazon as well.

Why does Taylor Swift always look so beautiful?!

It's really not fair. She always seems to elicit a resplendent aura of pulchritude. (using my favorite SAT vocab words ^^) She is one of the best dressed Hollywood celebrities, and even when her dresses don't match her level prettiness, I think she still manages to make them look good.



I think she looks exceptionally stunning in red (:
(The dress shown on the right in the picture above) I'm not a fan of gold or glitter, but she still looks amazing.
Can I borrow something of her's for Prom, pl0x?

Black Bow Tips Nail Tutorial coming soon (:

Haven't made a nail tutorial in over a year, if I recall correctly. I only did my right hand, and I will film myself doing the left hand tomorrow, when the lighting is not so non-existent. Here's a pic though:

It's super super easy. The picture and the flash make it not very clear, but I did a coat of really pale, shimmery pink first, and then I made the little black bows at the tips with the end of a bobby pin, because I can't afford the luxury of a dotting tool... or toothpicks....

Anyway, I'll be busy all day tomorrow, but I promise to have the video up by Friday night! :D
