Remeber those crown headphones a posted recently (if not, then scroll down!). Well I found this video on YouTube teaching you how to make your own. Also, check out Amber's channel for other amazing DIY videos.
This is something I've known about for a few years now. If you're not familiar with menstrual cups, they are flexible cups made of rubber or silicone inserted into the vagina to collect menstrual blood rather than absorb like tampons and pads. They are reusable and can be worn for up to 12 hours. Menstrual cups are also more cost effective than tampons and pads because they are reusable, they benefit vaginal pH by allowing helpful bacteria and fluids to remain in the vagina rather than absorbing everything like tampons do, they allow more time than tampons between changing (up to 12 hours), they are just as easy to use as tampons, and you can even have sex with your cup inserted (personal preference). If you're thinking about trying menstrual cups, make sure you do your research on the particular brand you plan to use. If you already use menstrual cups please comment below or email me personally to let me know what you think of them. Also, check out Diva Cups which is a popular brand of menstrual cups to purchase or get more information.
So there's a website that offers makeup, lashes, brushes, jewelry, and other accessories all for $1. Yes, you heard that right! Everything on the site is $1. Now it's not MAC or anything like that but they do offers brands like L.A. Colors, e.l.f., Kleancolor, and Nicka K. They definitely have a lot to choose from and for the price you can't really go wrong. Check it out at www.shopmissa.com
So I loveeeeeeeeeee matte lipstick. . .like love to the point where it's the only kind of lipstick I wear. I hate lipsticks that are creamy or glossy or whatever you call it and I just think matte lipstick is so perfect! The problem with only wanting to wear matte lipstick is that sometimes you find a great shade that's not matte. Just when I was about to give up and purchase some non matte lipstick, I found the greatest video on Youtube.
Did I previously mention that I am lazy af?! Well I am and I also love alcohol! Usually a bad combo because I've missed the liquor store more times than I can count because I just couldn't will myself to leave the house or lose my parking spot. Now there's this app called Thirstie that will deliver your liquor right to your door. Now I know this is not totally new because there are a few liquor stores (NOT NEAR MY HOUSE) that deliver. So when I first came across this app I was hyped but that soon died down when I realized that they don't deliver to my address YET. It's supposedly available in all major US cities and Canada, but they literally do not deliver to any of the addresses that I've entered (except my work address, LOL!). But maybe they deliver to some of my fellow drinkers out there. . .you're welcome!
Okay so who doesn't love some fresh bundles?! (I know I do!) They're so soft and bouncy with the perfect amount of shine *sigh* But bundles are supposed to be an investment and for the amount of money that you spend on them they're supposed to last for a couple installs (depending on where you order them from). Now usually I don't reuse hair. I really don't know why, I just don't. I guess I just don't have the patience for the maintenance that is required to keep your bundles looking fresh with every install. But for those of you who make sure you get your money's worth (and I envy you), here's some tips I came across for keeping your bundles alive:
To add shine back to your bundles: buy semi-permanent CLEAR hair rinse and apply it to your bundles, following the directions on the bottle.
To add moisture to your dry bundles: add coconut oil or olive oil to your conditioner and deep condition under a hooded dryer for 30 minutes. If the bundles are not installed try putting them in a zip lock back and putting them in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes (if you're not sure if your bundles can handle it, try 30-second increments).
To get rid of sweaty, smelly bundles: add 1 to 2 cap fulls of fabric softener to a half sink full of water and rinse your bundles in the mixture.
To deal with tangling at the nape area: fill a spray bottle with warm water, add argan oil, saturate the area, take a wide paddle brush and blow dryer, and detangle the area.
For fresh, clean hair: add a few scoops of baking soda to your shampoo.
To revive your bundles in less than five minutes: place the hair back into bundles so it's manageable, detangle the bundles (with a brush), fill the sink with warm water, add a half cup of Clorox to the water, place the bundles in the water and rinse the bundles in an up and down motion until the cuticles become smooth. (DO NOT perform this process while the hair is still in your head!).

Yup you read that correctly. . .vagacial. . .a facial for your vagina. . . .. . .yea. For those of you who have never heard of this (like me a few weeks ago) your probably a little weirded out (like I was). Apparently this is an actual thing that became popular a few years ago and supposedly has real benefits. Today a number of spas across the country offer this treatment which is supposed to aid in the prevention/removal of ingrown hairs and acne, while smoothing and revitalizing skin and treating discoloration. In other words it's supposed to make your kitty glow. It is recommended after waxing so if your one of the brave ones (not me!) who actually endure that torture this may be something you want to consider. The first step involves cleansing the area (usually with witch hazel). Next, an exfoliating scrub is applied which is followed by removing any ingrown hairs. Finally, a cream mask is applied and then a moisturizer. So this procedure isn't really as weird as it sounds. Pretty much similar to an actual facial. Not sure if I would ever get one but it caught my attention and it's obviously popular (just google it and see). There's even tutorials on how to DIY at home! Comment below with your thoughts on this, especially if you have ever gotten one because I am somewhat fascinated by this and want to hear your experience.
I swear I come across the most random things on the internet. Maybe some of you have heard of this, maybe not. But you can actually make an air conditioner from regular household items and its really cheap to do it! All I know is it's been hotter than the devil's cooch outside and if you can't afford an AC (no shade), there's other ways to keep cool. Click the links below for different methods used to make one:
