Hey everyone! I went shopping yesterday! I love to shop, because what girl doesn't?! I got some cute things I wanted to share with you. I am so excited so lets get into the haul.
First, I went to the mall. I went in to this little cute store that has a ton of jewerly. I have been obsessed with jewelry lately so this store was perfect! I ended up finding a really cute infinity gold necklace! It was only $15! I am so sorry but I do not remember the name of the store. :(
Next, I went into JCPenny for the first time! I have heard of the store before but I never went in and let me tell you.... I have been missing out! It was huge and there were some cute things for really good prices! I got a sweater that is super cozy and I love! It was only $20!
After the mall I stopped in TJ MAXX (my favorite store ever!). I found a bunch of things here and I love everything I bought!
Hey everyone. Today I went down stairs for breakfast but I was unsure of what I wanted. I looked in my fridge and I saw that we had strawberries and kiwi so I was planning on making a strawberry and kiwi smoothie. Then I saw that I still had kale, because I have been making a kale salad that I am in love with! I decided that today I was going to make myself a healthy "green"smoothie! This was the first time I ever made it and to my surprise it is really good! I am going to show you how I made it! :)
1 cup of Coconut water
1 handful of kale (can vary depending on your preference)
1 medium apple
1 medium banana
(all ingredients can vary in quantity depending on your prefrence and can be altered to your prefrence)
Preparing: rinse and chop all your food
1. Pour your coconut water into your blender (it is very important that this goes in FIRST!)
2. Add the other ingredients into the blender
I forgot the banana so I added it after
4. Pour into a cup and drink!
It is that simple! Now you all have NO excuses for not eating healthy. :)
Hey everyone. Ever since I got into makeup, I have been curious about airbrush makeup. I got this machine about a year ago. When I ordered it I bought the medium kit. They were too dark for me (and I was to lazy to send them back) so I just stopped using it for a while. About a moth or so ago, I went on the the Dinair webpage and bought a lighter color, one that would match my skin tone. Every since I got the lighter color, I have been using my airbrush machine everyday! The link the Dinair website is http://www.airbrushmakeup.com/ and the link to the kit I bought was http://www.airbrushmakeup.com/personal/4speedcompressorinblack/ .
The Airbrush kit that I bought was called Personal Basic Kit and costed $159.75. When you order your compressor, you get the compressor, the airbrush gun and four foundation color that should be in your shade range (like I mentioned before, I bought the kit with the colors too dark). It also came with a bronzer, a blush, a product called moist and dewy which is used to add moisture to your skin and an airbrush gun cleaner.
The medium kit came with the the foundation colors; light golden beige, honey beige, dark golden beige and golden tan. All these colors were too dark for my skin color so I ended up purchasing a lighter color, olive beige. The bronzer color it came with was light bronze. The blush it came with was dark peach pink, but I also purchased cloudy pink in addition. Also, it came with a practice color... but I have no idea what it is used for. (haha) The kit came with a moist and dewy. When I bought the olive beige color, I also bought Jet Black which is an eyeliner. I also purchased the eyeshadow shield from Dinair.
Why do I love Dinair so much?
I love Dinair because it is so natural! It does not look like I am wearing makeup. Someone actually came up to me while I was wearing Dinair and said, you are so pretty and very lucky to be able to not wear any makeup. This made me happy because I believe makeup should be used to help enhance you featured, not over power them. I think airbrush makeup does just that! Also, it take me about 4 minutes to do my makeup in the morning because you don't have to deal with blending concealer and foundation or finding a new brush for powder or blush. It is just way easier to use the airbrush makeup! (However, if I choose to wear eyeshadow, I do use normal power, cream or mineral, on occasions I use the airbrush shadow) Also, the Customer Service is amazing! When I ordered my kit, I accidentally ordered 2 so I called the Customer Service and they canceled on right away.
How to use:
All you have to do is apply a few drops of foundation into the cup of the airbrush gun (about 6-8 drops). Turn the compressor on my spinning the dial to about 12:00. Then pull back the lever and start applying the makeup to your face. Once the makeup runs out then apply about 2 drops of blush. And apply it to your checks. After you should clean out your airbrush gun with the cleaner.
Here is a video from a Dianir worker that show you how to use the airbrush. I did not make these, I just wanted to emphasis this!
I have been using my airbrush daily. It has become a staple in my makeup collect, so when I run out of the foundation, you better believe I will buy more! (But I just bought it so it should last a very long time!) I you have any questions about Dinair or airbrush makeup please feel free to ask me and I can do a follow up post!
