Customizing my Bellami Hair Extensions!

I have been wearing hair extensions since I was in high school. When I heard of Bellami Extensions, I had to try them out and they are AMAZING!!! The quality of these extensions are like no other. However, I did have to dye the extension myself because they did not have extensions that match my hair perfectly. Since I had to dye them,  I thought I would film the process to show you guys how I did it. Hope this video helps and give you an idea on how to customize your own hair extension! 

I got the Bellissima 220grams Extensions - Bellami Website

DIY Lip Balm! Make Your Own Moisturizing Lip Balm!

You want your lips fresh and kissable! ;) I was so excited to see my first lip balm video got so many positive views. However I saw some great advice and ideas for new recipes, so this lip balm is all because of your comments! I hope that you guys try it out for yourself! Every ingredient in the lip balm is for reason, in order to achieve soft, kissable lips. I made two recipes because a lot of your guys could not find beeswax! So I made one lip balm with beeswax and the other without beeswax. I also show you three different containers that you can store your lip balm in!

Ingredients
Beeswax Lip Balm Recipe
1 Table Spoon - Beeswax 
Beeswax is known to lock in moisture, foster cells, and protect skin from damaging environmental factors. Beeswax effectively softens skin and creates a long-lasting protective coating against the elements. It also is a naturally nourishing moisturizer. Beeswax contains vitamin A, which is very beneficial in softening and hydrating dry skin and in cell reconstruction!
1 Tea Spoon - Coconut Oil
Coconut oil can restore moisture back into the skin immediately 
1 Tea Spoon - Shea Butter
Shea butter has many anti-inflammatory properties that will soothe and protect the skin
1/2 Tea Spoon - Peppermint Extract
Peppermint extract is very soothing on the skin and can relieve any skin irritations 
Half of a Non-Toxic Crayon
Crayons can make a perfect lip color and is also used as a wax 

Non-Beeswax Lip Balm Recipe
1 Table Spoon - Coconut Oil
Coconut oil can restore moisture back into the skin immediately 
1 Tea Spoon - Shea Butter
Shea butter has many anti-inflammatory properties that will soothe and protect the skin
1/2 Tea Spoon - Peppermint Extract
Peppermint extract is very soothing on the skin and can relieve any skin irritations 
One Non-Toxic Crayon

I saw this ad campaign with Scarlett Johansson for Moet and fell in love with the makeup. Its this beautiful smokey eye and I wanted to put my own spin on it. It is an inspired make up look, it is not exactly the same make up look. I hope that you like my interpretation for this look.

Tiger Halloween Make Up & Costume!

This Halloween look is perfect, if you need a last minute costume. All you need is a black dress and body paint. You will absolutely get lots of compliments if you try this look. The body paint I used dries and does not rub off, so you don't have to worry about leaving a trail of orange behind. You don't have to paint stripes along your legs, black tights are also a chic option. If you try this look take a picture and share, I would love to see them!
