Summer Nails

Summer is quickly approaching! It is time to bring out the bright floral colors. After all, that is what summer represents! It does have an infinite shine, which is a glossy texture. The formulas for all O.P.I polishes are extremely thick and creamy. If you have never purchased from this brand, it is most likely the same if not similar to the polishes used in a nail salon when using gel color. Below are polishes from the O.P.I Fiji collection.

Copy Her Style: Keke Palmer

Hi lovies! Keke Palmer recently posted a photo on her instagram with her new short hair. But I wasn’t focused on her hair. Although it does give me Nia Long vibes, I was more focused on the outfit itself. If you guys didn’t know, I love old classic looks! I was so inspired I decided to find a mock of clothes that you can purchase yourself to achieve the same look.

Some of the items below are not the exact clothing in the photo, it is a mock. I tried to find the cheapest price for each item. 

Snapped Button Plaid Shirt from Forever 21 $19.90

Grey Spaghetti Strap Crop Top$6.99

Girlfriend High Rise Jeans from Urban Outfitters $49

Superstar Foundation Sneakers from Adidas $55

I enjoyed searching through different sites to find these. It actually introduced me to new sites! I’m actually planning on doing more of these! Also, be sure to follow me on pinterest: @alexus0!

Glow Up With Ashley!

​Now we all remember High School Musical and Suite Life of Zack and Cody’s favorite blonde! No other than Ashley Tisdale herself. She has partnered up with BH Cosmetics to create a illumination  of (highlight) products that are worth a double take. It has been known that all of Bh cosmetics products are vegan so this is available to everyone. They are known for their pigmented eyeshadows and highlighters with the most affordable prices ever!

I was so intrigued by this collection since I love a shimmery glow that I had to spotlight two items! To be honest, I am actually more excited to see someone from my childhood step into the makeup industry! 

She created a palette that is limited to 5 per customer. It is full of warm and sunkissed shimmers. It couldn’t have been released at a better time. This is called Night Goddess by her Illuminate collection with Bh.

Price: $18.00

It is kind of on the expensive side of what BH is known for but obviously price was bumped since it is Ashley Tisdale.

Next, these two shimmer bronzers. Now I don’t wear bronzer mainly because I just feel it makes me look muddy. I love a baked bronzer because you can basically add it to so much! Again, it was limited 5 to each person but I’m sure anyone who wanted to get their hands on it, DID.

Price: $9.00

I do believe these products will be amazing because this company has never failed me once. I hope you guys are just as much as excited for this collection as I am. If you have any questions about their products, you can always send them a message on their web page! Lip glosses and a cream kit is also apart of the collection if you want to check it out go to bhcosmetics.com. Links are directly captioned under photos if interested.

Hair

Get Out Of My Face!

In the summer doing your hair becomes a dreadful thing. Since it is so hot, you may be used to constantly putting it up into a tight or messy bun. But what about those days where you actually do want to do your hair nice but it’s way too hot to keep it down? The wind is always strongest during the summer near the beach and it can be super annoying when all of your hair is in your face! I wanted to share some styles I found on pinterest to give a little spice to your looks yet keep it out of the eyes!

Instead of a low slick bun, add some braids in the mix. Simply split your hair into three parts and braid the front sides going backwards. Make a bun out of the back portion and cross the braids around creating a cinnabon effect.Perfect for the heat that will guaranteed endless compliments.

This is the one for that 2 to 3 days hair that you don’t feel like washing. Messy lown buns are the cutest style and looks like you actually tried knowing it took no effort at all.

Of course, we couldn’t forget about two cornrolls going to the back of the head. I literally have been wearing my hair like this to the pool, to the beach, to the park, everywhere. It is easy to make this messy or neat depending on your mood. It keeps all of the hair out of your face so you’ll feel less hot as well.

And for those who like their high ponytails lets make it sleek and tight! Adding a fishtail braid to it, gives it that spunk and edge.

I hope you guys enjoyed these ideas and let me know what you think in the comments below. Be sure to follow me on We ♡ It @thatssolex.

Hair

Treat The Needy!

Lush is the place for it all. It’s definitely in my top 5 places that I feel like everyone should go. They are most known for their bubble bath bombs but they have so many other great products like hair treatments!

https://www.theodysseyonline.com/best-lush-products-available

For me, hair treatments are very important to do since I have a lot of curly thick hair. My hair is very dry and since it is summer, I feel like it’s 10x more dryer than it usually is. When you apply a treatment, its basically bringing back the life into your hair. Its trying to bring it back to what it was before it was abused (including using flat irons, blow dryers, a lot of dandruff). Treatments work stronger than conditioning your hair so I do recommend thoroughly reading the reviews before you buy and definitely scan the directions before you apply.

I buy my treatments from Lush. I feel like since a treatment is strong on it’s on, why not make sure its actually good for the body as well. The last thing you want is a strong treatment sitting on your hair follicles stripping the damage along with healthy hairs. As well as your scalp, keeping it to natural products keeps it more safe.

Uses: 

H’Suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment $21.95

http://makeupandbeauty.com/lush-hsuan-wen-hua-hair-treatment/

Size: 7.9 oz so its definitely a lot of product that it i going to last you a long time especially since this is NOT an everyday product.

This intensely moisturizes hair which is the main thing that I look for in hair products. It’s easy to apply. You literally just massage it all into the scalp and body of the hair and leave it for 20-30 minutes before shampooing it out. I personally leave it for 30 minutes because I know how well this product is for me. If you don’t have dry hair or your hair is somewhat healthy, I do not think this is for you. This mask basically feeds your hair so you don’t want to feed something that isn’t hungry.

I have been using it for two weeks now and I definitely feel a change in the vibrancy of my hair. It doesn’t feel super dry although there are a few pieces that do feel the same but overall it is making a difference in appearance. I will probably write a part 2 to this if you are interested in my process of applying the treatment and what I do afterwards.

Just let me know below! Thanks for reading!

Grow, Ladylike Learning

LadyLike Learning? What’s That?

Starting Monday I will be doing a series called Ladylike Learning which is just a journal of me sharing my thoughts on becoming a woman, body image, confidence and how you can build your presence. Whether we want to believe it or not, women are the foundation of life and every day we are pressured to do something, whether that’s looking a certain way, having sex or just putting on a smile at work because you have no other options. It’s easy to feel down about yourself but this series is going to help encourage and enlighten anyone feeling alone or taken advantage of. I believe your surroundings play a huge role in how you live your life and how you are. Create a life of joy, I promise you won’t have to pretend to smile.

Style

Sexy in Summer

There will be several times, probably more than you’ll hope for, when your friends are going to want to go out for a late dinner or your boyfriend wants to do something romantic. My style is more flaunt and flirty so for those who are a little more suttle, these may be a bit courageous. As a young lady, I have come to terms with my body and I am proud of it. I found GoJane while in search of another clothing store and I am so happy I did. Their clothes are definitely inspired by making women feel sexy and I love it. To shop around, click here.
