BE YOUR OWN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL

Hi, my name is Laura Jones and I'm from Melbourne, Australia. My friends would describe me a beauty and fashion fanatic that cannot stay in the one place for too long. I would describe myself as a normal girl with (slightly) expensive tastes and big dreams.

Color & Glitter EVERYTHING!
The internet has opened up the opportunity for all types of artisans and craftsmen to sell their creations. If you look online or at your local arts and crafts fairs, you will find a large variety of specialty items that can make you question why you never thought of doing that for yourself. One great example of this is the large variety of cups, mugs, and bags that are available. It seems we have the mentality of color and glitter everything, and it is easier to do than you may have ever believed.

Shiny, Sparkly, Glittery, Beauty!

Have you ever seen something shiny that was unable to capture at least a little attention? Most people will go out of their way to look at a shiny speck on the ground. This means that even though we may not buy, a sparkling coffee mug can grab our attention from the other side of an art show. Cups and mugs, even fingernails are all taking on a new look. Nails are simple, since most polishes come in a little nail polish bottles. The cups and mugs are a little more of a process, but not much since they use mostly paint, pigment, dye, and glittery stuff mixed with epoxy. With these items, even the most boring mug can become beautiful.

How to Create Fantastic Sparkling Mugs

Creating mugs and cups is easy to do, but you should know that it does take some type. If you have a color of mug that you do not like, you can spray paint it before you go any further on it. You may want to tape off the rim and bottom so that you do not have a painted surface there. You can also use resin pigment if you prefer to go that route. After it is the color you want it, you can Modge Podge some glitter onto the mug. This will give it the sparkle that you want. If you do not want the entire mug covered in glitter, you can write out your initials, draw a doodle with glue, or anything else you want. Tap off any excess glitter and prepare a workplace for your epoxy project. Since epoxy takes a bit to dry, you will need to leave the tumbler hanging and you will also want to keep rotating it to ensure it does not have a lot of runs. Until it hardens a little, you will want to turn it every minute or two. Gradually spacing it out until you turn it every 30 minutes or so. There will still be drips, but they are easy enough to sand off the next day if you used moistened sandpaper in a 400 grit.

Let Your Creativity Shine Through

Custom mugs and tumblers can cost you a small fortune if you start buying them. You can use epoxy on virtually any type of material. You can also use nail polish on mason jars to use in your kitchen, bathroom, or on your desk. Then add epoxy and sparkle if you want to. You can be as creative as you want, and it only takes a little bit of effort and time.

3 Healthy Ways to Perfect Your Hairstyles
You can twist it, cut it, pull it up into a perfectly coiffed bun, or let it fall freely along your neck and shoulders. Hair can look beautiful when it is well managed and groomed into a trendy hairstyle, but it can also become unhealthy if your styling techniques aren’t safe to use in the long run. Flat irons and heat-based styling tools should only be used with heat protectant serum and on the lowest possible setting if you don’t want split ends. Pulling your hair into a bun can also help to protect your ends, but you don’t want to develop traction alopecia as a result of pulling your strands too tightly. In addition to using a vibrating flat iron, you may want to reinforce your locks with a protein treatment and start cleaning your scalp with a clarifying shampoo. Here are three things that can be done to protect your hair so that all of your hairstyles look perfect. Royalty Free Photo

1. Start with a Clean Scalp

When you use any type of product on your hair it is going to leave some type of residue behind. Caked up hair styling product residue may even end up on your scalp. If you have ever tried to pull your hair into a ponytail but your tresses looked limp or your scalp looked greasy when you were done, there is likely a build-up of products leftover in your hair. Even if you use shampoo to vigorously clean your mane there might still be residue left on each strand when you get done. Try a clarifying shampoo so that you’re able to make your hairstyles neater and keep your locks healthier.

2. Deep Condition Your Tresses

Many people don’t know that hair needs to be moisturized from inside and out in order to stay strong and healthy. If you just dab on a bit of conditioner while you’re in the shower and wash it out after a minute or two, your hair could be missing a vital element. Begin deep conditioning your hair at least once per week on a day that you have a few extra hours to dedicate to nourishing your hair. You can wear a conditioner cap to keep your tresses properly heated or even sit under a hooded dryer for at least 30 minutes. It will only take a few sessions before you’ll see your hairstyles coming out much more nicely.

3. Use Quality Styling Tools

Although most women have at least one hair dryer, a flat iron, and a curling iron, it is more likely that you’ve got an entire bathroom drawer filled with various combs, brushes, and other hair styling tools. While variety is the spice of life, you need to be selective about what tools you use to style your hair. Using high-quality flat irons and hair dryers on your hair will make your tresses easier to style while ensuring that they stay as healthy as possible. Getting your hair to look great won’t matter much if your locks get dried out and matted in the interim. Always treat your hair with care when pulling off a complicated hairstyle and go to a professional if you have concerns about coloring or bleaching your hair. There’s also nothing with using a wig or hairpiece to simulate a particular style if you don’t want to leave your natural hair stressed out.
Top Tips for Choosing the Right Lipstick
When it comes to makeup, lipstick is often the least thought about when it comes to choosing. Of course, this isn’t to say that lipstick doesn't get a lot of thought. It’s the act of choosing that often gets swayed by marketing techniques and buzzwords. If you love wearing lipstick and are interested in some tips and techniques to help you choose the right color, style, and type, then this article is for you. Clean and Fresh The first tip comes in the form of lipstick preparation. Just as you wouldn’t paint a wall before cleaning it, always clean your lips before you apply any type of lipstick. Even if you aren’t going to wear lipstick and stop reading right now, at least use a moisturizer or balm after washing. Always Use a Lip Liner Before you begin thinking about all of the memes online with people wearing black lip liner and bright colored lipstick, consider something more realistic. A nude oriented liner can be a great option if you just want something to keep your gloss or foundation matched color in check. If you are looking to get adventurous, don’t be afraid to consider contrasting colors or even blended options. Speak with your local makeup counter assistant for more ideas. Wear It Appropriately Do you know what looks good at the club? Glittery lipstick. Do you know what doesn’t look good in the office? You guessed it, Glittery lipstick. Before you apply your lipstick, give it a second thought as to whether it’s appropriate for where you are going. If you’re looking for a broader range, check out the Groupon Coupons page for Walmart at travel packs with color options in one stick. Remember Your Own Lip Color If you were to paint onto different colored canvases then you would expect the same paint to look different. The same idea applies when choosing your lip color. If you see a bright red that looks great on the stick but not on your lips, consider that your natural lip color may be affecting it and look for colors a few shades up and down the spectrum. Don't Limit Yourself to One Color By brushing a small section of the middle of your lip with a bright stick or powder, it can help to open up your lips when you apply your chosen color on top. To make this effect even stronger, consider shading a small section at the corners of your lips. The idea behind this tip is to use different colors if you have the creative flair for it! Don’t feel that you can only wear one color. With so much attention paid to makeup products for your eyes and techniques to get your eyes on point, lips are often left as a second or complementary thought. The next time you sit down to design your face, think about your lips first and design the rest of your face around them. You will be surprised at the remarks!

Have you ever truly thought about the fashion and its truly meaning?
Fashion is probably one of the most common words among girls all over the world. However, is there anybody who can describe us the truly meaning of this word, or at least give us some its definition? When we say fashion, do we thing on the same meaning or every country and every nation has the story on its own.

Fashion all over the world

I have been traveling a lot for the past ten years, and I have to admit that the fashion is completely different form one part of the world to another. What is normal for classical European girls can be inappropriate for the girl that comes from the eastern part of the world. On the other hand, what is normal for Eastern girls can be an offense for American girl and so on. No matter how cosmopolitan we think, we are there are differences and variances from country to country. I came to a conclusion that the best way to understand the fashion of some country is to try to understand their culture, traditions, and habits, even a climate is important and affects a lot the fashion.

Inner beauty or a sort of rebellion

The point of every type of style is to show your beauty. In some cases, women need to express their need to feel free. Everyone wants to show its best qualities. I noticed that women who have to cover their complete figure usually have a lot of make-up. It is probably a way to attract the attention. Because no matter what religion or nation woman is, she has a need to attract the opposite gender. They also use a lot of jewelry; I was enjoying it when I was in Abu Dhabi. Sometimes we can notice that girls wear clothes, these clothes sometimes are expressing a little bit aggressive and negative attitude.This is usually common among teenagers where they just want to distinguish themselves from others and to express their rebellion and that teenage spirit. Usually, they wear alternative kind of jewelry and piercing is very often part of this fashion or tattoos. They also dye their hair in very unusual colors such as fluorescent green, pink or red.

In a conclusion

It leads us to the conclusion that fashion represents a sort of expression. It shows our attitude, our opinion, our way of thinking, or our tradition and even our character. You can have found out immediately whether the person you are talking to for the first time in your life introvert or extrovert. Yes, all that according to his or her clothes. You can even realize if the person wants to hide something behind those clothes.
