real poo for my sham friends

I've been excited over the idea of dry shampoo for a while now. i have very thick, naturally straight hair and it gets shiny and oily looking quickly, it also dries out easily. if i shower too much my normally impeccably behaved hair becomes unruly straw. i was so excited when i noticed these two products at the drug store. i bought the Tresemme Fresh start dry shampoo(TFT for short), and the Salon Grafix (SG) invisible dry shampoo. heres a little compare and contrast list

PRICE
TFS- $5
SG- $9

SIZE
TFS-5.7 oz.
SG- 4 oz.

ODER
TFS- fresh, light and citrusy
SG- strong, floral, powdery

FEEL
FTS-natural, just washed look and feel
SG- thickening and heavy, hair still shiny but added volume

to me, there is no doubt that the tresemme fresh start is the clear winner, i love it and highly suggest it! i can see this coming with me everywhere everyday this summer

welcome home





my eldest sister came home today, i hadn't seen her in an entire year! she lives in the UK and each time she comes home she gives me a little gift of some things i can't find in the US. this time she brought me some Barry M lip gloss and and glitter lash. oh also this little change purse from accessorize.

everything in moderation monday




today i went with bright lips and extremely simple and clean eyes. its not what i would usually do but thats what i like about it.


Revlon matte 004 pink about it (its way more pink than red in real life)
L'oreal jelly balm in Ripe

ringsnthings

rings are by far my favorite type of jewelry. they make chubby, childlike hands more elegant. i hope to have doubled the size of my ring collection by the end of the summer.

earlier this year i got cystic acne. what a nightmare. bumpy, painful, impossible to hide, i was totally discouraged. now, with some help from my doctor, i have it all cleared up, and although i fear jinxing my new found clear skin, i realized the other day how lucky i was to be able to hold all the makeup i need for a day in my two hands, and feel more confident than ever. pretty empowering.


today i wore:
MAC minerialize skin finish natural- light medium
MAC studio finish concealer- NC 20
MAC blush in Well dressed
L'oreal voluminous mascara
L'oreal lineur intense liquid liner
Covergirl tru shine lipstick in shade 400
