Perfume is like the Cherry on top of the Whip Cream!

Smelling Delicious is part of your outside beauty. If you have been checking my blog out than you know what I am talking about. This post is not about skin or hair care but it's about dressing up your skin into your favorite scent. Having people around you getting a sniff of you is my favorite part. Well, I also do love smelling sexy! The beauty process starts from the inside out. Last thing after you finish with your lip gloss than you put on your perfume. Maybe not necessary after the lip gloss but you know what I mean right?
 What's you favorite perfume? For me I have a collection. These are my top 4 at the moment. The Halle Berry I just bought it Monday and I love it. While girls collect handbag and shoes, I collect perfumes. FML lol kidding!

I hope you enjoyed this post. Comment below xoxo Thank You

Oscars 2012 Hair Styles

I really loved many of the dresses and hairstyles for the Oscars 2012 event. My favorite I must say is Angelina Jolie, she really looked hot! She looked refreshed and happy. I think that red lipstick really popped for her. I also loved Jennifer Lopez dress she always look stunning! I also loved Shailene's bun, the last pic of this post. Buns can be perfect for almost any event I think.

What did you enjoy of this even? What's your favorite hairstyles? Come and Interact with me. I reply back!

A Men Haircut with many styles

(Pic 1)
I wanted to do a post on a men's haircut. I am qualify to talk about it. I have been a cosmetologist for so long and I love doing haircuts. I am not just doing this post for the cuts but to show that 1 specific haircut can be used in many ways. If you look at all these pictures, the men have basically the same haircut.  
Let me explain, Pic 1 is short on back and sides, I am going to probably guess that is a number #1 clipper size blended into with a #2. Short on top with scissors.
Pic 2 I am guessing it can be size #1 or even size #2 blended into a #3 and short on top with scissors.
Pic 3 and Pic 4, I'm guessing clipper #3 blended into with a clipper #4 and short on top with scissors.
This cut is versatile. You can spike it, gel it back, to the side, or however you like. My point to this post is that from pic 1 wearing a muscle tank top to pic 4 looking like a corporate business man, whichever outfit you pick with this cut you will look SHARP!
Remember keep that neck…

Queen Helene Julep Face Mask

Remedies on Dark UnderEYES...(Ojeras)

So let me guess, your on the next football team? OH, I'm sorry, those are dark undereyes! Yikes. My bad. It's ok you came to the right place.  Unfortunately, getting enough sleep isn't always enough to prevent dark circles under the eyes from developing. The following are some of the common causes of dark under eye circles:
Aging: As we age, the delicate skin under our eyes becomes thinner. This thinning of the skin allows the blood vessels underneath to become more visible. These blood vessels can give the appearance of under eye circles. In addition, we also lose collagen and fat in the under eye area. This leads to hollowing as we get older. The deeper the hollows, the darker the circles appear. Ugh yea, welcome to the aging world. 
Allergies/Nasal Congestion: Nasal congestion causes the veins that drain from the eyes to the nose to dilate and darken. This can lead to the appearance of dark under eye circles. In addition, allergies can not only cause nasal congestion, …

Sleeping is as important as Breathing

What does lack of sleep does to the health, that is the question? 

Insufficient sleep can affect hormonal balance in adults. Tissue repair also occurs during sleep, including repair to the daily skin damage done by UV light. Getting enough deep sleep will help your skin repair itself. How does not enough sleep affect the brain? When people do not have enough sleep, they cannot concentrate well the next day and have problems forming memories.  During sleep, neurons can shut down and repair any damage done during the day. Without these repairs, the neurons may not function correctly due to a buildup of waste products. Sleep also seems important for the formation of memories. Lack of sleep increases the risk for developing obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and infections equals to health problems. Humans deprived of sleep for long periods begin hallucinating and develop other mental problems.

Why am I writing about sleep? Beauty for me comes from the inside. Taking care of your …

Jalapenos and Acne

skin acne, high blood pressure, aggravated hemorrhoids, nose bleeding, burning sensation, abdominal distension, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, Guan halo, even vomiting blood, and hematuria.
Red pepper gives amazing relief to arthritis. Hot pepper brings down blood sugar levels, lowers cholesterol, prevents blood clots, halts bleeding quickly, knocks out cold and flu miseries. It also reduces risk of heart diseases and tuberculosis. In addition it is an ulcer healer. The internal consumption of capsicum stimulates the gut's muccosal cells which release more slimy mucous that neatly coats the intestines, including sores and bleeding ulcers. It also increases metabo…
