It’s Time For A New Bra!

I will literally wear my same bra for months. Yes, I know it’s not appropiate but ladies don’t act like you don’t do the same. It’s crazy how quickly undergarments can become overworn. But do you really know when it’s time to give up that lucky bra and throw it out? Stop ignoring the signs and make the change!

Elasticity 

Once the elastic band no longer stretches, it’s a problem. You are no longer getting the support the bra is suppose to grip onto which means you’re literally wearing a bra for no reason. Once you have the assistance, you want to maintain it.

Spillage

We constantly wash and dry our bras depending on the brand. But regardless, your bra is going to shrink but your boobs are not! Once you notice your boob spilling out the side of your bra, its definitely time for an upgrade. You never want your boobs buldging out of the protection it’s suppose to be locked into especially your nipple area.

Wiring

Pain is the last thing your boobs should feel. A bra is your comfort, don’t hold onto something that should have to be adjusted in places its not suppose to.

Dirty Bra Straps

This one is for every girl who still doesn’t understand that it’s time to bury the bra. Your straps can easily be seen by anyone! If no matter how many times you wash it, it continues to look dirty, THROW IT AWAY. There are several things that can make a female unattractive and that is one of them! If that doesn’t speak for itself, I don’t know what does. 

There are obviously other signs that it’s time for a new bra but these stood out to me because I realized through these specifically. Thanks for reading. Let me know your thoughts below!

Full Face Using Elf Cosmetics

Recently, Elf cosmetics has been added to Ulta’s website. I am super excited because most likely it will soon be available in select stores. I don’t really like shopping for makeup online. Colors are never scaled as shown so seeing and testing in person is important for me. Elf’s products are cut-rate but exceptional. They are currently having a grand final sale on their website! Literally items are $1! To check out the sale, click here

But before you go, not every product you buy has be over $30 to be the best product in the world. You can create an entire face less than $30 and look just as gorgeous. Today I did what I consider a normal delicate face using only Elf cosmetics.

Poreless Face Primer $6.00

– reduces enlarged pores and fine lines

– infused with tea tree and Vitamin A/E

Acne Fighting Foundation in Caramel $6.00

Instant Brow Lift Pencil in Deep Brown $2.00

3 in 1 Mascara $3.00

Baked Bronzer in Los Cabos $3.00

– perfect use as your bronze and highlight

– contains rose, apricot and grape for hydration and nourishment


Blush in Mellow Mauve $3.00

– blends into a silky finish

Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose $3.00

Okay my total has come up to $26! This same amount is the result of 7 items rather than one item on my face.

All photos are not my own. They from the ulta website. Thank you for reading and I hope this shows you don’t need to go out and spend a ton on one beauty product.

Look Flirty, Feel Sexy

I would say my style of dressing is very flirty and some may say taunting towards others. I have curves and thick legs so I kind of take advantage of how my body is. I in no way dress over revealing because I do have respect for anyone seeing anything they shouldn’t be able to. Summer can kind of be that excuse to wear those shorter than usual dresses and those higher than usual heels. It will soon be over and I want to share some dress ideas for your summer nights.

Blue Lace Up Mini Dress $13.99

Grey Front Shirring Cami Dress $24.99

Floral Crochet Mini Sundress $25.99

Dry Your Nails Quickly!

If you’re like me, impatient is your middle name. I love painting my nails but moving around and touching things is something I cannot resist. I decided to go to Ulta and find a fast drying top coat.
I found . . .

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
Price : $9.95
Buy : CLICK HERE

First of all, it is suppose to penetrate all the down to your nail to make sure no chipping happens at a quick pace. And yes, this product does just that! It lengthens the life of your polish and dries super fast! This comes in handy when you need to paint your nails for an event and your polish seems to take forever to dry. You just swoop this onto your fingers and continue getting ready without an issue of smudging or wipe aways. It also gives your nails a bit of a shine!
Honestly, everyone needs this in their lives!

SIDE NOTE : I just wanted to add that I am very excited to have 30 followers! It’s definitely a great feeling knowing that I’m posting content people actually want to read about. Thank you! ♡
