Nice Buns!

I began searching for some quick ways to make myself more presentable a couple weeks ago since my time to get ready is quite limited in the mornings. Putting make-up on and fixing my hair in the bathroom together with my toddler is special. My goal is to be done before he has taken everything in the bathroom and placed it into the toilet. This gives me about five minutes. Understandably the hair department has suffered, wearing my hair up is a must and you most likely will see me with a hat on.

Until recently when I heard of the Bun maker. I love it and how it helps me look like I actually did something cute with my hair. There are two types that I like and both work nicely. The Conair bun maker and a long black clip type:

You can buy the Conair Bun Maker at Ulta Stores and the other one on Amazon, just search in Google. I checked out some of the how-to-videos on You tube for instructions that were really helpful. You can even find videos on how to create great buns without buying anything. These two items are really affordable, starting at a buck and going up to 5 dollars.

Have fun making your cute buns!

 

 

It’s getting hot in here!

It’s bloody hot. I’ll admit I am a total sissy when it comes to the heat. My strategy is to lock myself in the house and become a shut in (thank you AC). For those of you crazy people who actually want to get out and do stuff here are some helpful skin care related tips and products I would use if I left my house.

The best way to protect yourself from the sun is to cover up of course! I always wear a hat at the pool or even going outside when the heat is up. And I don’t have to do my hair, win-win. I just bought a Roxy hat, check out there super cute selection: Roxy Hats

Wear a sun protection that has some color so you can forgo the foundation. Many people who are prone to breakouts have more problems in the heat when wearing a rich makeup base so keep it light. I like Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint this has an SPF of 30 and no artificial fragrances or colors. Plus key antioxidants such as green tea and grape seed extracts help protect your skin against sun rays even further.

If you happen to get a sun burn its important to treat your skin often with something healing. I like using Aloe, you can buy a pure aloe at most drug stores. I like to keep it in the fridge to treat a burn (ahhhhhh). Or an even better idea is to buy an aloe plant and break open a leaf to extract the aloe. Apply directly to skin. These plants are so easy to grow and look pretty cool too.
