What are some things that I can do for myself?

Girls, we are very hard on ourselves, and we usually spend so much time making other pepole happy, that we completlely forget about ourselves! I wanted to spend some time giving you ideas on how to pamper yourself, even for just an hour or two.

1. Buy candles in your favorite scent and relax! Don't read, don't think, just sit back and give yourself some time.

2. Take a hot bath with scented oils and soaps. It doesn't just feel great, it also cleanses you and replenishes your skin!

3. Spa day at home! Use cucumbers on your eyes, deep condition your hair, and moisturize your entire body. It's extremely rewarding!

4. Make a pot of green tea and play some soft music.

5. Take a nap! When was the last time you had one of those?

6. If anything comes to you, jot it down so you can do something creative with it later. But remember, no thinking about it now! It's time to relax.

7. Turn off everything in your house, and instead light a couple candles and enjoy the effects.

8. Sit by your window with the best view with something hot to drink, and take it in.

9. My favorite thing to do is sitting in a comfy rocking chair with commics. (commics are okay because they're funny and stress-free. On the other hand, a book is out of the question because it makes you think harder than looking at pictures and reading just a few words. Laugh away!)

10. Go swimming or sit in a hot tub. VERY relaxing.

Just a tip: Never read or watch anything while relaxing! The less you think, the more relaxed you are. Just enjoy your time. You can even combine any of the ideas I gave you to get an even greater effect.

Yellow nail polish is in! It's bright, beautiful, and eye-catching. This look is for a center-of-the-croud, outgoing person. Here is a list of styles that yellow nail polish fits right in with.

-It compliments the classic black cocktail dress, but it gives it some playfullness as well.

-It goes great with plain tees, skinny jeans, and sneakers(converse work especially well)

-Finally, try it with pinks! Any pink looks great with a bright yellow.

How to Rock Wrist Warmers

Hey Girls!

Wrist warmers are all over the runways in the US and even across the world. They add just the right amount of sassy punk to any outfit! Here are some helpful hints and ideas for wearing them, including pics.

-For a punk look, match bright, multicolored wrist warmers, a baggy tee, skinny jeans, and dark heels or boots.

-For a chic look, go for bright nail polish! I found that yellow works the best for me, but also try reds and pinks.

Not only are they extremely fashionable, but they're cozy and warm too!

If wrist warmers are your thing, you should also check out Lucky Necklaces.

Purple Lipstick

Hello ladies!

Purple lipstick has been appearing all over the runways this fall, but some sources say that they will be in style more than ever this winter! This chic look can be easily worn with dark eye makeup and plain clothing, so that the look isn't "overdone". First apply dark eyeliner and mascara to both bottom and top lashes and lids. Next apply a light coating of foundation. Skip the blush, or otherwise you'll end up looking like a clown. Apply a dark purple lip pencil to both upper and lower lips. Then apply a lighter color of lipstick to your lips. Now for the finishing touches! Apply some clear gloss to both bottom and top lips for extra shine and style. This look can be worn as a nighttime look, or a daytime look. For work pair it with a classic black outfit. And when it's time to hit the town try wearing it with the never ending black dress or other dark colors.

Whitening strips

I've tried Crest, Equate, and Aquafresh. The one I found worked the best turned out to be the Equate whitening strips. They have more gel in them than the other ones. Aquafresh trays are less time consuming, but they don't whiten as well. Crest is alright. Crest strips are thin though, so the color changes more slowly.
