I’ve always been one of those gals who danced to the beat of her own drum, but something about turning 24 really pushed me over the edge into who I want to be. Within a months time, I pierced my septum, shaved half of my head, and dyed my hair gray. And my personal style is transforming along with my beauty routine on a daily basis. So today I've decided to share some tips on how to gracefully transition into the grey (or any other crazy color).

DIY Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Fall is just around the corner for most of us, and we all know what that means! Pumpkin flavored everything, cozy flannels, and gorgeous scenery. If you couldn’t tell, I’m a huge fan of the Fall season, but there’s one thing that comes hand in hand with this time of year, which I’m not so fond of– chapped lips. 

One of the best ways to counteract this issue is with a good lip scrub. My personal favorite is by LUSH Cosmetics. Let's be honest, everything in their line is my favorite, but that can get a little pricey. I did some research and came up with a (budget friendly) lip scrub DIY that is very similar to LUSH and works just as fabulously! Keep in mind, if you aren’t a fan of bubblegum flavoring, you can always substitute the bubblegum extract for something like mint. Happy scrubbing!

The Life-Changing Hair Oil You Need to Try

Confession time: I have damaged hair. I do a lot to it. It’s naturally curly, but I do keratin treatments regularly (these actually dry out your hair, unlike they would have you believe). I go back and forth between dying it red for winter and then blonde for summer. And it goes through the occasional flat ironing. Now, my hair is certainly not near as dry as straw, but not like silk either. But thanks to my new holy grail product, it feels like silk.

I have tried many a hair oil. I want heavy duty moisturization, light control, sunscreen, and to bring "life" back to my hair. Remember, your hair is not alive. Your scalp gets nutrients, but not your hair follicles. There is no way to mend split ends or repair extensive damage. However, oils are wonderful at bringing back some oomph, which is exactly what many of us need.

The Best Lip Products for Fall

Fall makeup trends typically go a bit bolder and darker than those light summer looks. This time of year is my favorite for playing with new products, as I can really experiment with dramatic trends.  I’ve found that one of the easiest ways to change up your makeup look is with a different lip color. A bold shade can take your look from work, to after work drinks, to date night drama. 

From bold and brazen to subtle and sheer, here are some of my favorite Fall lip products:

Here in Florida, we don't exactly have the traditional Fall season. Nevertheless, I still embrace everything autumn: pumpkin candles, anything with apples, Chanel’s iconic Vamp polish, Halloween decorating, and Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Nothing says Fall like the release of Pumpkin Spice, and I jump on the pumpkin bandwagon as soon as September begins. If you're itching to get your hands on that Pumpkin Spice Latte like I am, whip up this easy DIY pumpkin spice latte sugar scrub.
