Review: Biore Pore Strips

Standard

Hey Folks. It’s been about a month and I decided to review Biore Pore Strips.They come in an ultra deep clensing pack, deep clensing pack, and combo pack. These nifty little things run from about $7.99-$9.99 depending on which type you buy. I bought the combo pack.

Start off with a clean face. Wet the areas that you are putting the pore strips on, they don’t stick to dry skin. Put them on and wait for about 10minutes. You know their ready to peel off when they feel hard. Then peel them off and look at what was in your pores. Cool right?

I definately think these are cool. They get some dirt out of my pores. Although when I’m all finished I can still see black dots on my skin.  And they are pretty drying and leave some sticky residue left on your skin. I reccomend following by washing your face and moisturizing.Must haves? No

Back To School!: What’s in YOUR Makeup bag?

Standard

When I did the Back To School Essentials post I talked about stuff you want in a makeup bag. I decided to expound on that a little bit. Also I found my concealer which I had lost for ages.

The Bag

you want a really cute bag to hold all your makeup. This is a $10 bag from Payless

Blotting Papers, Hairspray, Lipstain, and Lipglosses. I reccomend lipstains because they last a long time.

Lip balm(with spf), concealer and smell bag(?) A smell bag is something my mom made out of lavender flowers and a bag thing. I put this in my PE locker to make it smell better You can also use car air fresheners>
Ok so theres an error or something on my computer which is preventing me from putting on the next photo and I cant type punctuation marks> so sorry

Back to School Series!:(non)Taylor Swift Inspired Curls Tutorial

Standard

Hey Ya’ll. I decided today that I would kill you guys with posts (or at least try to) This is my first hair tutorial so it is a fail and does not look like Taylor Swifts curls. It would be a lot easier if I could put on videos, but I can’t. Yet. That time will soon come. Grab some popcorn, this is gonna be a long post.On with the tutorial!

1. Smooth Down

use a smoothing serum. When you have distributed it in your hair, brush it out with a wide toothed comb.

2. Something.

I don’t know what to call this step. It’s an optional one. I’m taking Herbal Essence Tousle Me Softly Mousse and putting it in my hair. Scrunch.

3. Heat protectant (no picture)

k. If you’re gonna put anything in your hair, let it be heat protectant. Heat tools can damage your hair so this is crucial.

4. Blow Dry!

I find that products work best in my hair when wet. You cant curl with wet hair! Blow Dry.

4. Section your hair

This mop of mine can’t be curled at once. Seperate into sections

5. Curl, Curl, Curl

6. Tada!

Whew! That took me a while! Thanks for looking!

School Supplies I Recommend

Standard

Hey folks! So we all know that school is coming up, and for some, it’s already started! I wanted to show you guys what I reccomend for school supplies:

1. Binder,Binder Dividers, and Dictionary

These are essential to keeping organized. Don’t have these and your head will fall off. I like the binders with the clear pocket thingys so you can put in pictures of things you like. And the Websters Dictionary is great because it fits right into your binder. It’s always with you! and the binder dividers are probably the most important because they seperate each subject in your binder.

2. Notebook paper and Index cards

Notebook paper is a nother must. You use it pretty much every day. I also like using Index cards for presentations and stuff like that. They’re  good for quick little notes.

3. Writing Utensils!

I can not stress enough how important it is to keep a writing utensil with you AT ALL TIMES. Usually, people don’t have extras. Also, have extras. My all time favorite pens are the black erasable kinds. These things are amazing. My school does peer editing, so If yours does too, then have grading pens.

4. Hilighters+ Colored Pencils

Hilighters, I never really used them until last year. They are great. You forget stuff a lot so just hilight it. Get them in bright colors, it’s more fun that way! Colored pencils are used for projects so keep them on hand.

5. Planner and Compostion notebooks

Okay, again, unless you want your head to fall off, get a planner! You probably want a one that has boxes for each day so you can write down your homework. Last year, this was a lifesaver. And I perfer composition notebooks to regular notebooks just because their neater and stuff.

6. Pencil Cases, Book Covers, etc.

You want a pencil case because, what else is gonna hold all that stuff? Ya know during the beginning of the year when they give you your textbooks and make sure you take care of them by writing your name down? Book covers help take care of that and they make your books look cute! I also included a usb drive because we do a lot of work on the computers and you want to bring that home to work on right?

7. Locker Decor!

Target has some great locker decor. I chose a holder with a mirror and a little clock, which I thought would come in handy since I dont wear a watch or carry a time device. You can also cut out little pictures from magazines and tape them to the inside of your door. I put some things in the holder for full effect.

8. Emergency Bag

I used this tecnique last year and It was fabulous! Just take a little makeup bag and fill it with all of the things you need in just in case such as –hem hem- girly items (I keep them in a little pouch), lipgloss, advil, hair ties, band aids, mints etc.

Well, that concludes the post. I hope this helped. Thanks for reading!

Tag: Would You Rather? :Beauty Edition!

Standard

It’t time for a game of

 Would You Rather: Beauty Edition!

 

If yall are reading this, I tag you! But I especially tag Kyana from Kyana’s Korner! Lets get started:

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up?

 Oooh, toughie. Probably messy hair and nice makeup because I do that more often. but I would do either. 

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?

Have my eyelashes fall out because I could put on falsies. I don’t want tattoo eyebrows!
 

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?
 
Sephora because they have more of a variety and their more afforadable! 
4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80’s perm?
 
I could wear urban decay ozone lipliner with lipgloss! That still counts!
 
5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?
 
Overdone blush. It’s not as bad. 
6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?

Mc Hammer pants baby!

 7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can’t be covered?
 
Weird tan lines. I used to have them on my back when I was on the swim team. Their not bad actually. 
8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?
 Hair color because you could always redo it.

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?
 
I dont know! I don’t have either.
 
10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?
 
Oooh! another toughie! One time I left my mascara at home and it was a special occasion so I used gel liner. It worked just fine! So probably mascara.

That wraps it up folks. Have you subscribed yet? Hmmm?
