Wise Word Wednesdays

Happy Hump Day Everybody!

What is going to get you through this Wednesday? How about a little inspirational advice?

Today let’s center our conversation on focusing. And not only do we need to focus on our work life and school life we need to focus on our Loved Ones as well. Let’s take the time today to step away from electronics that run our lives. Such as our phones, our iPads and any unnecessary noise.

Let’s focus on what’s in front of us whether that is school, work, a hobby or relationships. Let’s listen to the people around us and step back from our electronics that takes so much of our time. We will be able to have those conversations we miss out on, connect with new people, and live our lives happier and more fulfilled than yesterday.

Wouldn’t it be so much nicer if the time we spent with each other was quality? How different would our friendships, partnerships and overall relationships be??

Sooo today let’s take a step back from what’s going on on our newsfeed or who’s texting us! Let’s put our phones to the side and enjoy the people in front of us. Have Quality conversation, build relationships that will last a life time, and make conversation with random strangers!

You never know who you’re going to run into!

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

JADE ROLLER MAGIC

JADE ROLLER MAGIC

What’s that crazy green thing she’s rolling on her face?!

Soooo a huge beauty trend right now that resurfaced from the 17th century in China are Jade Rollers!!

WHAT ARE THOSE THINGS??

Jade Rollers come in all shapes and sizes, and normally come with 1 to 2 Rollers on it. A bigger one on one end to cover more surface area around your whole face like your forehead and cheeks and then a smaller one for those hard to reach places like your eye lids and under eyes.

WHAT DO THEY DO??

Have you ever heard of putting cold spoon under and over your eyes to reduce puffiness?! Same thing! The Jade stones naturally stay cold and help with inflammation, redness and even reduce fine lines and wrinkles! Our facial muscles hold a lot of tension in them just from daily use and that’s what creates wrinkles and fine lines.

The Roller massages your face and increases the circulation and firmness of your skin through the movement and the pressure created by the roller.

The Jade Rollers are a huge help with the absorption of product into your skin such as moisturizers, serums, oils, etc.

My skin has always been super dull especially once I put makeup on. Since I have been using this morning and night my skin has had more or a natural glow to it with and with out make up on.

HOW DO YOU USE IT??

When I use my Jade Roller I start in the center of my forehead and work my way down my face and moving from the center of my face to the outer edges.

NEVER FORGET YOUR NECK AND DÉCOLLETAGE!!

I work up and down my neck and across my décolletage.

**FUN TIP**

Put your Jade Roller into the freezer for a couple minutes to cool it down even more. (Its life changing!)

WHY JADE???

Jade is known for its balancing, calming and healing properties as well as being a lucky stone!

This is why it is great for calming and balancing skin’s tonality! Jade is also known for its ability to reduce tension hence the reason it’s great for fine lines and wrinkles!!

Hope to see you guys be able to try out these magical things! And become a believer like me!! lol

MY DAILY HAIR ROUTINE!!

 

How do you style your hair every day?? Well, here’s how I do mine!!!

*Tools used*

  • Harry Josh Pro Dryer
  • Straightener

*Products*

  • Sun Bum Sea Spray
  • IGK Down & Out
  • Aveda Men Grooming Clay
  • Bed Head Masterpiece Hairspray

Here are the steps I follow when styling my Messy Pixie Look:

  1. After I get out of the shower I normally do my makeup first so I can make sure my hair is able to air dry a little! I don’t brush my hair out when I let it air dry to help with the pieced out look I want to achieve. Once it’s 80-90% dry I spray in the Sea Spray and shake it around!
  2. Then I Blow dry towards my face and blow my bangs straight down! *Make sure to have the Ionic switch on to help avoid unwanted Frizz.
  3. It’s time to straighten next! I start on the side with less hair and work my way around my head. I slightly curl the hair and give it just enough curve to make it seem like I use a Round Brush. Then straighten or bend the hair depending on where I’m at on my head and the look I want to achieve.
  4. My hair sticks to my head if I don’t put a little product in it so I found a Dirt Spray from IGK that give me the perfect amount of lift, piecey-ness and volume. Spray at the Roots throughout my hair and shake it in.
  5. Time to tame it down a little! I then take a little bit of Grooming Clay and piece out my hair and rub it around the back of my head to make it a little more messy. This product help smooth out pieces as well!!
  6. Let’s make this thing last all day! I then grab my hair little by little and lift up as I spray to get the most possible Volume! I spray a fair distance away from my hair and spray a little bit below the section for Max Volume as well. Wait a minute to let the product dry and then scrunch and shimmy till you have your desired look!!
  7. Have fun and personalize this look for you!!

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE APPS AT THE MOMENT??

 

The month of January I have really tried to focus on my Health and Personal Well-Being.

Basically, eliminating my stress and trying to be at peace with where my life is has been a huge thing for me!

We all spend sooo much time on our phones each day and so the first thing I decided to do when going through my phone for the New Year was delete what I don’t need. I had so many apps I downloaded that I maybe opened once or twice and it really just wasn’t worth having it taking up space on my phone!

Another big thing I did was delete ALL my games!! I spend so much time on my phone anyways going through my social media I decided to get rid of any other distractions that would take up more of my time and not allowing me to ENJOY the Present.

Sooo let’s dive into a few Apps that I haven’t been able to let go off:

  1. Headspace

This has been a huge one for me because it forces me to take a deep breath, get in touch with my body and mind and ultimately being able to live a more Stress-FREE life! This one is packed with Simple and Quick daily meditations that vary from everything such as Health & Happiness to Sports & Students!

2. KHLOÉ

The Kardashians are definitely the kind of people that you either love them or hate them, but if you’re like me and Love them their Apps are Wayyy worth it! I have both The Khloé & Kourt App Downloaded and I’m Subscribed to both and I’m in Love with them! Both share beauty tips, health & wellness, and fashion advice as well as some yummy healthy recipes!! Even a little bit about their lives and what they’re into at these points in their lives!

*Fun Fact*

2. Spotify

I have always been huge music person and so I have always had some type of app that played music on my phone. Years and years back I started using Rhapsody it’s now called Napster and I loved it. I looked up what I wanted, downloaded it and listened away but a big challenge was getting all the music that just came out.

Another music App I really like is Pandora and I’ve used that one for a while too but have been using it a lot now while I’m the Salon! I needed something that will continue to play a station all day and that was good. But what if I could have both???

Spotify brought me that!! Fun and various station that I can pick for any mood or day at the Salon AND I can find all the music that just came out and Download it!! All I wanted in an App and it’s Simple!!

This one is the Price of Netflix & Hulu! And the nice part is you CAN listen for FREE! Just with a little less capability!

Subscription to this App is $9.99 per month.
