How to heal dry peeling lips

Are your lips still dry and peeling? Get sexy kissable lips with a little TLC.  Start by giving them a gentle exfoliation.  You can exfoliate your lips in a few ways: A brush Use a toothbrush or a motorized brush such as a Clarisonic brush on wet lips. A washcloth Use a wet washcloth on wet lips. A scrub Use a sugar scrub on wet lips. Here is an easy sugar scrub recipe. Brown Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar 1 Teaspoon Olive Oil Mix brown sugar and olive oil together in a small bowl until smooth. Wet your lips. Apply scrub to your lips. Massage the lips and lip line in a circular motion for 30 seconds. Rinse and pat dry. Exfoliate your lips once or twice per week. Exfoliating them more than that can over exfoliate them causing more peeling and irritation. Now Moisturize! After exfoliation, apply a thin layer of moisturizer. A facial moisturizer for dry or sensitive skin works well.  Now Seal! Next, add a lip balm to seal up the moisturizer.

Crocheted Shorts for Men

I tuned into Kelly and Michael this morning to see Kelly showing this pic of crochet shorts for men.  I was so amused by it, I just had to share it! I can't think of one man that I know who would wear them. Not even my daughter's free spirited boyfriend. They are very creative, though! Perhaps you have a man who  would love them.  Here is an etsy shop to purchase a pair or maybe you fancy crocheted pants!

What season does hair grow the fastest?

Want to try a shorter hairstyle but you are a little nervous about going short?  Get your new short style in the spring! If you don't like the shortness, there is good news.  Hair grows just a little faster in the summer due to warmer temperatures.  The warmth and the sun exposure cause hormone changes in our bodies that cause better circulation.  Better circulation provides more nutrients to the scalp which helps our hair grow better. So go ahead, try that new hair cut with less fear, as long as it's Springtime!

14 Tips on How to Dress for an Interview

Are you hunting for a new job? Your appearance, from head to toe, matters more than you think! I chatted with a woman who was interviewing people to fill a job opening. She commented on one particular applicant's appearance. She said the job seeker was wearing worn open toe shoes with unpolished toe nails. The interviewer didn't even consider hiring her. Why? Lack of attention to the details in one's appearance implies the there may be a lack of attention to details in one's work. This may not really be the case at all. The unpolished toe person could be an excellent employee, but the first impression doesn't say that at the interview. The business world is competitive. Like it or not, you must polish up for a job interview. Taking care of your appearance really does matter! Employers really do check out the details. You don't have to spend a lot of money to polish up your look. For example, do a little bargain shopping at the mall for your interview out

Lorac Champagne Dreams Palette

I pick up this Lorac Champagne Dreams Eye Shadow Palette at Ulta. It was one of their Daily Beauty Steals during their 21 Days of Beauty event. The packaging is so beautiful! It is just as beautiful inside! I hesitated before I bought it because I read a review that said the colors didn't show up well when applied and there was no staying power. It was only $15 so what the heck, I bought it. I figured I would use my favorite eye shadow primer, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, first. It makes all shadows work better! The colors do have sheerness, but they go on nicely.  They blend well together and create a beautiful soft shimmering look. I did apply the Primer Potion first, by the way, and the shadow stayed beautiful and crease free all day. I used 5 of the 7 colors to create this look. I think would be amazing on a bride! The Champagne Dreams palette was a special palette. I don't know if you can still get it, but the colors look very similar (in fact, t
