Cinnaberry Tresses

 The cold weather can sometimes feel a bit dreary at times and I feel like my hair starts to mimick the weather and lose all of its dimension and spice. 

So to jazz things up I like to warm up my hair by using a temporary hair color usually on the auburn side. This weekend I was starting to feel that itch to change something to spice up my look so I used the hair color that I had, Cinnaberry (Medium Auburn) by Clairol Natural Instincts. 

I like the Natural Instincts version because it doesn't dry out my hair and actually makes it silkier that it was before. 

Now I have a nice spicy hair color like my cute little dog, Chloe! 

The perfect amount of spiciness to survive the cold months ahead. 
Two Red Heads! 

If you are feeling about dull from the chill go add some spice to your hair color!

Purifying Mask: A Nice and Relaxing Treat for Your Skin

photo from

I decided to treat myself to a mask treatment yesterday. I used the WEI Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask that I had gotten in my Birchbox. I absolutely love this mask! It makes your skin feel rejuvenated and clean without the tight dry feeling that some masks leave your skin feeling. 

The mask eliminates debris and toxins from your skin and can be used on all skin types. 

The China Clay in it exfoliates and cleans the skin without the tight and dry feeling. The Golden Root is a botanical that has been used by Chinese Royalty for centuries. It helps the skin look younger by reducing the oxidative stress placed on your cells as they age. 

WEI East is a beauty line developed by Wei Brian. It is the largest Chinese Medicine inspired company in the United States. They use real traditional Chinese remedies in their amazing products and use 100 of nature's best herbs. 

How to use: brush on a clean face, avoiding eye area (I used my fingers since I do not have the special brush)
Leave for 10 minutes
Then rinse with warm water and follow with your normal skin care routine.

WEI offers many other products that will give your skin a relaxing vacation every time you use them. 

Check out the link below to purchase your own mask and peruse their other products. Check out Birchbox as well and try it out! You are sure to find some new products to add to your beauty wardrobe. 

Enjoy & Be Beautiful!

Peppered Lips & Cozy Wool

Winter is definitely coming and bringing that icy cold weather with it. I am not the biggest fan of the cold but love to take advantage of cozying up in my warm wool sweater in order to stay warm. I got this sweater in Ireland and highly recommend to anyone traveling over there to make sure you don't leave without without finding your own sweater to bring home! They have so many beautiful choices ranging in many different colors and patterns. 

I chose to wear my ankle boots today and to add some extra warmth and add the illusion of height to the shoe I added my leg warmers to the mix! I know they are a flash back to the 80's but if done in the right way they can add a nice element to your outfit. They are a great way to add versatility to your boots and to add warmth to your life. Try it out!

The Rusk leave-in treatment is amazing! I use it after every shower and it has helped my hair to stay healthy and shiny even though I am a big fan of waiting forever to get my hair cut. The product helps control frizz, smoothes, detangles, moisturizes, strengthens, adds body and more to your hair. If used with heat it will act as a thermal protectant. 

For my lips I chose a color that is brownish in color for a subtle but present lip color. I am wearing Pepper from Bite, which can be found at Sephora. It is very moisturizing and has a nice creme finish. Over top I put the Dior Lip Polish in 002 for a nice non-sticky shine. 

Since I am going for a more subtle makeup look I just put on some mascara, Diorshow Extase in Black, to give myself nice big lashes. 

All in all this is a great casual day outfit to keep you warm and cozy.

New Fall Essentials from Target

Yesterday I did a nice shopping trip to Target with one of my very close friends Jenna after a fantastic lunch at Panera. I had not been to Target in quite some time and was pleasantly surprised at all the fabulous accessories they had to choose from to add to ones fall and winter wardrobe. 

 I found some amazingly cute leather gloves with a bow on the wrist part of the glove and a very fashionable fedora. Normally I am not much of a hat person because generally I feel that they don't look that great on me. But once I put this beauty on I knew it was meant to be! 

I purchased both for around $32 including tax. I have to say that is quite a steal! 

There are a lot more styles of hats and gloves to choose from at Target so don't hesitate and go get some accessories to top off your fall and winter looks! 

Enjoy & Be Beautiful!!!
