Motivational Monday: Guard your heart

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Beauty Talk: Makeup Expiration

source: makeup.com

Makeup has an Expiration just like the food we eat. I never know exactly when to throw out milk or bread until I smell a funk. After working in the beauty industry for over a year I have seen people get infections from old mascara and even breakout from old foundation because it has bacteria that multiplied over the years. I know it sucks buying a $10-25 mascara every 3 months but opt into purchasing travel size mascaras (Benefit makes a great one).
Mascara - 3 months
Liquid Liners- 6 months
Foundations- 6-12 months
Lipgloss- 1 year
Concealer- 1 year
Nail Polish 2 years
Lipstick- 2 years
Powders- 2 years
Eyeshadow/Blush/Bronzer- 2 years


Motivational Monday: Tough Times

"Tough times don't last. Tough people do."

DIY: Redesigned Jewelry Mannequin

I was doing some spring cleaning and I noticed that I have a mini mannequin Jewelry Holder that I have not used in over a year. The holder was a bright sparkly pink. Instead of throwing it out I changed the fabric up. It was really easy. Check it out below.

Cut of the old fabric completely off. 
I laid the old fabric against the new fabric to cut a similar pattern to fit the mannequin perfect. 

I hand stitched the fabric together inside out. (I could use the sewing machine)
Redressed the mannequin with the new fabric. I placed the wood pieces back together and added a little glue.

Try redesigning the fabric of something old to give it a new look. :)
