Sorry guys! And My manicure method

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in a while! I jut got back from the beach an I've been super busy!! Anyway, I just found out there's a blogger app, so I can do on the go posts:) which is what I'm doing right now:). But from the picture you can see I did my naillss! Oh boy did they need it to. Below is my super easy manicure method:)
1. Remove any nail polish left on your nails.
2. Taking a 4 sided nail file shape and buff your nails according to the directions for the file.
3.apply a hand cream to your nails, any lotion will work.
4. Apply a clear base coat to your nails.
5. Once that dries apply your color. I used Spoiled's cotton mouth, a really pretty bubble gum light pink color but any color or brand will work.
6. Apply any nail art designs you like, I just did white French tips to mine.
7. Apply a clear top coat for extra protection of your nails so they don't chip easily:)

What do you think of my manicure? Leave a comment below!

My Makeup Story

Hey guys! So I've seen this tag on youtube "My Makeup Story"... or something like that but anyway I figured I would do mine!
Anyway, I'll start from the beginning,  I started wearing makeup the beginning of 7th grade.  I remember the day my mom took me to Aveda salon so I could have a "professional" do my makeup and show me how its done.  I started out with a small eyeshadow palette that my mom bought for me from Aveda, a revlon cream eyeshadow quad, a lip stain and gloss, and a revlon bronzer and blush duo that my friend bought me for my birthday.  Before all this though I would sneak on makeup when I went to my friend's house, or sneak some of my mom's makeup on. I got grounded a couple times for wearing makeup after she told me I wasn't allowed to. I got really into makeup when I started watching videos on youtube. I have probably watched all of juicystar07's, meganheartsmakeup, and macbarbie07's videos.  thats when I really started collecting makeup.  the first high end makeup product I bought was the Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette. When I went into the store I had no idea how expensive anything was and instead of eyeshadow, which I thought I had, I grabbed cream eyeliners thinking I could buy 4 or 5, when the lady came over to help me, she asked if I wanted cream eyeliners... I had no idea what she was talking about so I was like oh yea sure, but thankfully she helped me find what I wanted and bought my first makeup palette! Ahhh you have no clue how excited I was, I remember it to like it was yesterday (yea i know that sounds cheesy but its true!)

A Little Inspiration

Hey guys so lately I've had a lot of stuff to do, and I swear I have adhd because I can't stay focused on one thing. I keep thinking about all the stuff I need to do and how I need to practice this and get this done, but I  have so much to do I was getting really overwhelmed with everything.  So, a word of advice from my madre was to sit down and make a list of everything I wanted to get done. Now I ended up making 3 lists, they were very short because I was focusing on the main things I need to get done.  So for example, on my cheerleading list I put practice jumps, work on splits, and work on my backhandspring. Then under each of those I put how I would practice and when I wanted to have it done.  So splits I said in 3 weeks, back hand spring I said for about a week because I'm extremely close to having it perfect, and my jumps... well you can always work on jumps.  But thats just an idea of how you can practice and set goals for yourself.  After I made all my lists and set my goals written in paper, it really inspired me to try to accomplish as many of these goals as I can in the time I have set.  In fact, I'm extremely close to my left leg split and back handspring and in about three weeks I should have my splits, if I work really hard and stick to my chart of practicing every day.  For me writing things down on a piece of paper, and having it out to remind me, gets me really inspired to try and fulfill all of these goals I have!

Will you try this? What goals are you trying to reach? Leave a comment below!

Treat Dry Cracked Lips and a DIY

Hey guys! So, today I have a beauty tip for you all and a DIY lip scrub!  So I'm sure you all have had this problem when your lipstick looks flaky and blotchy because your lips are chapped and you've tried chapstick and lip butters and not even that fixes the problem!  Well you need to take care of your lips, kind of like you would your face.  So the steps for your face: wash it and exfoliate and sometimes even a little extra pampering like facials and massages.  To have healthy lips you need to exfoliate them as well! Exfoliating removes dead skin and is a bit more of a deep clean then just washing (I'm not really sure why or how you would wash your lips but that's beside the point). Anyway using a lip scrub that you buy or you make is the best way to exfoliate your lips.  So enough of the intro, here are steps to make your own DIY lip scrub and how to get the healthiest? i dunno what you wanna call your lips.. healthy gorgeus beautiful... whatever floats your boat. OK here we go:

What you need: sugar, olive oil, lip balm, and a small bowl to mix it in (optional a small jar like a baby food jar).
Take about 1/4 teaspoon of lip balm, a few drops of olive oil and a packet of sugar, or about a teaspoon of sugar and mix it all together. Now you can either use it straight out of the bowl or put it in the small jar for use later, I prefer the jar so you can use it again and not have to make more. If you use the jar you may need to mix more than what is said. Anyway, once you've mixed it together, take the scrub on your lips and rub your lips for about 60 seconds then wash and immediately apply lip balm. I like using a lip butter just because they are so creamy and moisturizing to the lips. Try the korres lip butter, I've heard great reviews on them! Do this about twice a week and you should notice a big difference in your lips!

Will you guys be trying this DIY lip scrub?
