Fall's Hottest Hairstyles for 2010

I'm absolutely loving this seasons Fall Fashion and Hairstyle trends. Here below, directly from the pages of InStyle Magazine, is a quick lil rundown of Fall's Hottest Hairstyles for 2010!!

*Sleek Side-Part

STEP ONE Flip head upside-down and blow-dry hair. Gently rake hands through hair, but keep strands from looking greasy by limiting contact with the roots: "Touching your scalp causes it to release natural oils"
STEP TWO Flat iron side-parted locks with one slow movement from roots to ends and spritz with hairspray. 

*Undone Chignon

STEP ONE Apply mousse to damp hair, flip head upside-down and blow-dry with a diffuser.
STEP TWO Create defined waves and body by sectioning hair in 3-inch chunks and twisting around a medium barrel curling iron. "This isn't a tall style, but a bit of volume will keep it from looking flat"
STEP THREE Warm a dollop of pomade between your hands and loosely pull your hair back into a low, soft bun. Finish with a mist of hairspray.

*Polished Bedhead

STEP ONE Comb anti-frizz cream through damp hair and blow-dry smooth.
STEP TWO Beginning an inch away from the roots, create loose curls with a medium iron. "Let the strands twist naturally as they wrap around the barrel"
STEP THREE Shake hair out with fingers and mist with finishing spray.

*High, Textured Bun

STEP ONE Apply thickening cream to damp hair and blow-dry with a large round brush for volume.
STEP TWO Mist-in shine spray. Pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic.
STEP THREE Gently wrap locks to form a bun and hold the updo in place with hairspray and "as many bobby pins needed to make it feel secure" 

*Retro-Inspired Ponytail

STEP ONE Spray hair with texturizer and finger-comb strands as you blow-dry.
STEP TWO Center-part the waves and tease at the crown.
STEP THREE Spritz locks with gloss spray and pull hair into a ponytail, leaving face-framing strands loose. "A light mist of hairspray and you're ready to party." 

*Soft, Bouncy Curls

STEP ONE Mist well-conditioned hair with leave-in conditioner and volumizer before blow-drying.
STEP TWO Side-part hair and set with large rollers. Curl the bangs and crown backwards and wrap the sides under and down. "The direction of the set is key, because it creates the volume and flow of the finished style"
STEP THREE Once hair cools, work styling cream through the spirals with fingers and spray with texturizer.

Things I'm loving right now.

These two things I'm finding myself wanting to wear alllll the!! As, you can see in the pics, I love wearing them together, as well as with other looks!!!

My new sunglasses from Urban Outfitters that we're only $10.00 :) I love that they're lightweight/comfy and stylish, as well as inexpensive! I've had SO many people ask, 'what designer are those?', assuming  they're $300 Designer Sunnies, and they're always so surprised to hear the good news...$10!!! :)

Another great find is this bracelet. I got it at Metro Park, it was in the clearance section, never pass up the clearance section guys, you never know what goodies you'll find :) This bracelet was regularly $20.00 and it was marked down to $5.00 :) Love it!!! <3

And let me tell you, I've used just about every self-tanning product out there, and I have found many that I like, but I've now found one that I LOVE...and at an incredible price on an amazing website.

My fav self-tanner from their site is ...

Hey everyone!

Sorry, I've been a bit MIA from my YT Channel. My computers recording device is on the fritz again so I haven't been able to record. I got a couple 'Mail/Hauls' done before I went on vaca for LDW and now that I'm back I will post those probably today. I haven't been able to record anything else, unfortunately :(
I have SO many reviews, hauls, and requests I need to do. I greatly apologize to you all. I'm in the process of getting things taken care of right now.
Thank you, for being patient and supporting me. I love you guys! ((HUGS))

I'm loving these right now!

I'm a big lover of protein bars as snacks and also sometimes as a meal replacement if I'm on the go!! Well, I was at Costco the other day and I was out of my Special K Meal Bars, which have been my fav for a while now, and they were out of them : ( So, I decided to pick up these other bars the 'full bar!' I had never heard of them before, but I figured I'd give them a try. When I'm looking into picking up snack/protein bars, I always make sure they're under 200 calories and never over 5 grams of fat! So, these appealed to me being as that they're only 160 calories/ 3 grams of fat/ 1 gram of saturated. Also, too they were in the flavor 'Cocoa Chip' :) So, I tried them and LOVE them. You're actually supposed to eat them 30mins before a meal w/ a glass of water before your meal, and then well you don't eat as much, but I eat them just as snack bars :) To me they taste like Chocolate Cocoa Puff cereal :) And they are very filling, especially if you drink any liquid with them!
Here is the website below if you'd like to look further into the product, they make all different sorts of bars, and snacks : ) Enjoy!!!
