Succulents are really the ultimate plant. They are beautiful and unique while being easy to care for because they can survive long periods without water. There’s a variety of ways to display these ornamental plants as well, which adds to their charm. A mix of them potted in a simple planter, hung in a group of glass terrariums, or arranged into a living wreath are all gorgeous presentations.

In this post, I’ll show you how to wear a succulent design on your nails using water slide decals. These nail art stickers are really easy to apply and I think it’s pretty fun to do, too. Born Pretty Store offers lots of cute designs at great prices. Get an additional 10% off with coupon code PA10K31.

REVIEW: GreyFree by Guiliano

greyfree

If you follow my posts, you know I’ve been on quest to find the best temporary root concealers. These smart products cover grays and new growth along your part and hairline between haircolor touch ups. They are brilliant for hiding noticeable roots for important meetings or events and helping stretch the time a bit between salon appointments. (Just don’t wait too long. New growth over 1/2 inch can process unevenly due to heat at your scalp.)

These convenient cover ups come in a wide variety of textures and application methods including powders, markers, and sprays. In this post, I’m reviewing GreyFree by Guiliano, which looks and feels a lot like mascara. You simply unscrew the cap and use the attached wand to lightly paint over new growth. Wait for the product to dry or use a hair dryer to speed up the process, and then lightly brush through.

As I learned while playing with GreyFree, a little goes a long way. It’s designed to cover effectively with a light coat and too much can feel heavy. Once dry, I didn’t have a problem with the product transferring on to my clothing or bedding and it shampoos out easily. Additionally, the forgetful klutz in me appreciates the all-in-one design. It’s easy to through around in your bag without the fear of the product breaking or loosing the applicator.

GreyFree offers 9 shades – the most of any root cover up I’ve found. The Ash Brown color works really well for men and can even be used to color beard or mustache hair. Hey, it is Movember, after all.

Pros:
Covers well
Convenient, travel-friendly packaging
Available in a lot of shades
Safe to use on eyebrows, eyelashes, mustaches, and beards
Doesn’t transfer onto clothing once dry

Cons:
Heavy feeling if you use too much
Takes a few minutes to dry and set
For use on hair only; doesn’t fill in thinning areas the way powders and spray do

GreyFree Hair Color Touch Up is available at Folica $10

Pumped Up Ponytail Hairstyle Tutorial

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestmailby feather

pumped-up-pony-1

Sometimes bigger is better. I offer this ponytail as evidence. Adding some serious volume elevates a simple style to one that’s a bit sexier than your everyday heading-to-the-gym pony. It’s still casual but the big ‘n messy retro quality adds a bit of sass and intention, if you know what I mean. It’s a ponytail, sure, but one that took a some amount of styling. And, IMHO, that tiny bit of effort can really bump your confidence level.

Don’t worry; the “effort” to create this look is nominal. It should only take a couple minutes, definitely under five. Quick and easy with lots of impact… that’s how I like it.

Get the full step-by-step instructions for the pumped up ponytail after the jump. Continue reading
