Braids and Beauty Tips


image via WeHeartIt
My favorite childhood hairstyle, without a doubt, was the french braid. I couldn't help but to notice the recent come-back of this hairstyle and the impact it has made on the fashion world. Whether it is the crazy Betsey Johnson or the classy Marc Jacobs, you'll be sure to spot a braid or two on this Fall's runway.

Also, here are some beauty tips I wanted to share with you all:
1. Vaseline makes a great eye and lip makeup remover (don't use this on your face because it will clog your pores)
2. A cheap substitute for dry shampoo is baby powder.
3. Having skin troubles? Try an aspirin and honey mask. I'll make another post about this later. In the meantime, visit this link for details.

One last thing. I think you should all check out this video. It involves a really talented and handsome guy playing my favorite Taylor Swift song on the piano. Need I say more? (Just to clarify, I don't personally know him. Though, I wish I did. haha!)

I Love french braids! And I've used the honey/aspirin mask before. It works wonders - it basically made my skin glow!

I lovee the two braids on the side (in the 2nd picture). Unfortunately for me, though, I can't braid to save my life

And I've tried the honey and avocado mask. I love it (except that having avocado smeared on my face isn't the most attractive look)
