DIY Haircut - Long Layer (for all hair types)

Would you cut your own Hair?  After viewing this youtube video I am willing to give it a go.  

I have been longing to find a stylist who would cut my hair as I want it.  I really am looking for a basic long layered style.  I love volume and movement in my hair.  

Unfortunately, although I have tried several different stylists over the past 5 years, I seem to get the same generic hair cut.  Maybe the style I want doesn't fall into the trending hair style category, but should that matter?  I know what style looks best on me and it's what I want.

I recently found this video and I am going to cut my own hair.  Farah shows how to cut your own hair step-by-step.  My hair is such a mess and it's long, so I feel like I can do this!

I'm planning a trip to Sally's to purchase a pair of shears this week!

Would you cut your own hair?  Next weekend I'll be cutting mine!

Body Merry Cellulite Defense Gel ~ Review

Cellulite is a condition that plagues almost every woman on the planet.  Cellulite does not discriminate.  Cellulite are the dimples, lumps, bumps and orange peel skin that no exercise can banish.  

Over the years there has been much talk about how to diminish the appearance of cellulite. Although multitudes of dollars have been spent on research, marketing and retail purchases, cellulite still exists today.  

I was recently introduced to Body Merry Cellulite Defense Gel.  After reading the ingredient list I was thrilled to find that I would be receiving the product to use and review.

First I'll share the active ingredients list and you will begin to see why I am so excited about this Cellulite Gel.

  1. The optimum level of Retinol 0.4% as recommended by experts.
  2. Caffeine
  3. 3 types of Seaweed~ Algae Extract, Kelp and Dulce
  4. Organic Cayenne
  5. Japanese Green Tea Leaf Extract
Each of these ingredients has been proven effective in the battle of cellulite.  When combined in one Gel I can only believe that this is a powerful product.

Upon opening this gel you will notice a strong, not unpleasant smell reminiscent of lemon and mint.  The consistency is thick and pudding-like.  

Using a fair amount I proceeded to massage into my just showered, dry back outer thigh area.  I immediately feel a slight cooling sensation that is invigorating.  The gel massages in quickly with very little tackiness.  I continued to feel the cooling sensation for about 45 minutes.  

I used this Cellulite Gel for 2 weeks and while I didn't notice a huge difference in my cellulite I did notice that my skin was a bit firmer.  With continued use and along with diet and exercise, I think this Cellulite Gel will help my lumpy, dimpled skin.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Setting the Mood ~ October Collage

Setting the mood for October.  Fall is my favorite time of year.

Airing out stored sweaters and jeans.  Hunting for a new coat and handbag to begin the season.  

Leaves changing colors and then falling to the ground to rustle under our footfalls.

A hint of cool sweetness in the air with a promise of more to come.

As Mother Nature prepares for her long rest a stillness surrounds us.

Just arrived! Laura Bailey Collection

I am loving the AW14 collection featuring Laura Bailey.  The clothing is classic, yet on trend and most items are on sale.  The clothing is wearable with so much that I already have in my closet.  

I have purchased the Silver Polo Neck jumper.  I am waiting for the Black Satin Back Jumpsuit to become available.  This jumpsuit will be a key ingredient to many looks.  It will look equally fantastic dressed up or down.
