Summer's Secrets.

I think we all have our little beauty secrets and tips that we share with our friends. Here are my secrets:
Tigi Bed Head "S Factor" Flat Iron Shine Spray $16.84
This is the most amazing smelling hair product in the entire world.  Trust me- it literally smells like candy.  You can spray it on your hair before you blow dry, flat iron, or curl it to protect your hair.  I also like to spray it on after it is dry for a pretty shine or just to make my hair smell yummy!
Aussie Deeeeep 3 Minute Miracle Moisture Treatment: Sydney Smooth $2.52
This is honestly a coincidence that I am going to Sydney, i promise! I have been using this for my curly, easily tangled hair for a long time.  I only brush my hair in the shower with this lathered all over my head.   It makes it so easy to get the tangles out and keeps my hair soft and moisturized.

Bare Minerals Glimmer in Queen Phyllis $11.99
This is the perfect eyeshadow for every occasion.  I brought this with me to Rome and I used it for the entire trip! It is perfect for everyday and going out.  It looks really beautiful on every skin tone too. I will always keep this in my makeup bag.  Bare Minerals has a bunch of other eyeshadows I love too.  I use Bali when I want to feel like like a golden goddess :)

Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy $11.28
This may surprise you, but I swear by it:  I use this as chapstick.  Especially living in Colorado, I need a very moisturizing lip moisturizer because of the dry air.  It has the same consistency as Vaseline.  I actually learned this trick from a dermatologist doctor.  Voila! Your lips will be soft and luscious if you use this, and that way all your fancy lipsticks and lip glosses will look fabulous all the time!

  9. You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
    Oh living Aten who creates life.
    When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
    You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
    Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
    You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son.
    You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
    Men see you, but know not your ways

    thanks...sweet baby!

  22. I will have to try these hair products! I currently use Aveda Damage Control before blow-drying. I use Kiehl's Heat Protective Styling Cream or something like thatfor flarironing because it's silkier. I'm a product junkie so I'm always up for trying new things. Plus, my hair gets bored so it needs variety.

  23. I agree with all! I have naturally curly hair, so I've never tried the Tigi Bed Head Shine Spray but I use the other faithfully!
