Summer Beauty Hacks

"Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart."
- Kahlil Gibran

It is now the 25th of June and it's officially summer here in California. I've been busy working and celebrating these past few days but I'm back with some beauty hacks. If you don't know what beauty hacks are, they're basically tricks that help make your life a whole lot easier. These eight items in specific are quick fixes for various summer beauty problems. 

Let's get started

1. Sweat Stains during summer can be unpredictable. To remove them from clothing, squeeze lemon juice on the stains before washing.
      2. There's no summer without Sunburns. To relieve burning skin, grab an egg and separate the yolk from the white. Rub the white all over the burn to help cool down the area.

3. To give your skin a Dewy Glow during the hot and dry summer days mix a small amount of liquid highlighter in with your foundation.

4. Summer is not the time to rock them Cracked Heels, to fix this icky problem, apply some Vaseline to them and put on a pair of socks right before going to bed

To make your Summer Fragrance last longer apply a light coat of Vaseline on pulse points, like inside your wrists. This will help the fragrance cling to the Vaseline instead of sinking into your skin.

5. Hot weather calls for bear legs, If at some point you find yourself out of Shaving cream, use hair conditioner. It works just as well and it will leave your legs feeling extremely soft.

6. Deodorant Stains are a problem, even when we're out of the summer months, to get rid of them, take an already used drier sheet and rub it over the area. 

No one likes to deal with Staticky Hair, to tame it, grab a drier sheet and run it through the areas where there's static.

7. There's nothing worse than being at a summer event and suffering from mid-day sheen. To fix this, grab a small piece of a toilet seat cover and use it as Blotting Paper. It works perfectly.

8. During the summer when keeping hair up and out of the face is crucial, spraying Bobby Pins with hairspray will make them sticky which will help them stay in place.

I hope these few tricks were helpful, let me know in the comments what you think and don't hesitate to share any other beauty hacks you may know about :)

June Feels

(priceless, a moment through memory lane)

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things"

I'm at my happiest moments right now, enjoying my favorite month of the year! There are so many great things Im looking forward to this June and I want to share them with you! 

The Feels

I'll be celebrating my 21st Birthday! Woohoo!! I’m not so sure what I'll be doing on my birthday weekend quite yet, but what ever it is, I'm sure it will be amazing. 

I got a Camara! Yay! This means I get to share amazing pictures with you guys! My boyfriend surprised me with it as an early birthday present! He has always been so supportive of all my plans and experiments and my blog isn’t an exception. He went out and bought me a Canon Rebel which is the easiest thing to use, he obviously bought it keeping in mind that I am not very technologically savvy. 

I'll be starting my new job at Starbucks! Do you know what this means?…more shopping! And more shopping means new discoveries to share with you guys! I start this coming Monday, which is all very exciting and nerve-racking at the same time because I haven't had a job in over a year! I was too busy going to school, but now that I graduated I got to get my butt working.

I'll be Heading to the Gym! It's time for me to stop being lazy and start being healthy! I promised myself that when I got a job I'd sign up for a membership. I'm one of those people who can't stick to a diet or exercise routine, so I figured that if I'm paying I'd be more willing to go. I'll Be sure to keep you guys updated on how that goes. 

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ 

 Writing this out makes it all more exciting. I can't wait to see how it all turns out!
What are you excited for this month?
