Winter is finally over, and you know what that means? Girls with perfect beach waves looking perfect while you sit with your messy bun looking not so perfect. And on the very (very) rare occasions when you do get gorgeous hair, it takes the whole rest of your day. But there is hope yet, it is possible to have the perfect beach waves without spending your whole day getting that ‘it’ look. And it’s called . . .  keep reading and you’ll find out.

(for real now) It’s called, ‘the messy bun and spray’

Now I now that sounds weird and surprisingly like your normal messy bun and go routine, and it is, except in this routine, you take the bun out. Here’s how it goes.

(shower version)

Take a shower, towel dry you hair until it’s damp, now make a bun.  But, because there are many kinds of buns out there I’m going to describe how to make this certain one. Any other and you won’t get waves.

And these . . .

And these . . . (Shown by the amazing Amanda Bynes)

Take your hair and start to make a pony tail. Once you have wrapped your hairband around the base of it one time, take your hair (keeping the half pony in) and twist. Twist your hair until it starts to wrap around the base of the pony and then wrap the twist into a ball. Then take the hair band and wrap it around the ball until you get to the middle of the ball and leave it there.  Tada, you have your bun.

Wait until you are about to go to the beach, undue your bun, and spray with hair spray. You should now have the perfect beach waves. When you go swimming put your hair up again and wait till your hairs almost dry. You know have perfect beach waves, again!

And these!

This year show those beach girls who’s boss and kick butt with perfect beach waves.

Lady Gaga. What pictures come to mind when I say that name. Is it her skyscraper heels? Her long strait blond hair? Or maybe, if you’re like me, it’s her atrocious outfits. Whether it’s so sheer tops, not there bottoms, or whatever else this crazy blond has up her sleeve, one things for sure, this girl is will always make a scene. But would you  ever take styling tips from this style super man? Probably not. But do you wish you could look as fabulous as her. Definitely yes. So how do you look as awesome as she, with out the crazy? You turn her outfits into more friendly (not to mention not nearly as expensive!), more normal, outfits.

Lady Gaga’s version.

This sheer, is clear, and for anyone who is not as amazingly thin and fit as gaga, this outfit wouldnt work. How would you like the world to get a picture of you in all of your fat roll glory? I didnt think so.

My, more normal, version.

This top mimics lady gaga, black, sheer,and with a plunging neckline. But remember to wear a cami underneath, with out one it kind of defeats the perpose of making it less showy. It is still sheer.

Lady Gaga’s version.

Black leather (or plether, who knows), makes this swimsuit unforgetable. But what makes it even more unforgetable is the setting. Please, unless your rich and famous, keep the swimsuits at the beach.

Black leather (or pleather, who knows), makes this swimsuit unforgettable. Not to mention the giant bow, and the grommets. But what makes it even more unforgettable is the setting. Please, unless you're rich and famous, keep the swimsuits at the beach.

My version.

This swimsuits a one peice, it only has one shoulder (Lady Gagas swimsuit only has one shoulder too), and its black. Ita basically Lady Gagas swimsuit exept a whoe lot cheaper. Oh yeah, just remember, keep it at the beach.

This swimsuit's a one piece, it only has one shoulder (Lady Gaga's swimsuit only has one shoulder, too), and it's black. It's basically Lady Gaga's swimsuit except a whole lot cheaper. Oh yeah, just remember, keep it at the beach.

Lady Gaga’s version.

I feel like Im deep in a jewl mine, those gold embelshements are HUGE! But the color combanation is lovely, and so is the base dress, and I think, with a bit of help, this dress an be turned into the most perfedt cocktail dress.

I feel like I'm deep in a jewel mine, those gold embellishments are HUGE! But the color combination is lovely, and so is the base dress, and I think, with a bit of help, this dress an be turned into the most perfect cocktail dress.

My version.

Now I admit, Lady Gagas dress was very different but its the same colors and the same length and the low neckline is very Gaga, so I think its good enough.

I admit this dress is very different, but the length and the colors are the same. And the low neckline is very Gaga

So, keep it cool, keep it stylish, keep it Gaga. (Well, my version at least!)


I love summer. I love the  heat, the sun, the fresh air, I love everything about it. Well, everything besides showing all that skin. It’s just plain embarrassing to have a doughy stomach when you’re surrounded by should-be models. And everyone wants to look sexy but not doughy. How can you pull that off when your stomach looks like an uncooked pretzel? You keep reading this post.

This retro swim suit wraps and hold to avoid belly bumbs. It comes in red or black, but I suggest red because sometimes standing out, helps other things stay in. (Im talking to you big belly!) $124 at Victorias secret.

So, grab a bag of chips and your favorite one piece, cause you don’t need a bikini to look like a model.

Eyeliner is great. It can make your eyes look 10 times bigger, and it can make your eye color look 10 times deeper. So,

Summer’s coming! SUMMER’S COMING! Did I mention that summer’s coming?! And in order to be ready for summer, I have gone and found perfect summer makeup.

Summer makeup must be waterproof, if not then what’s the point? The point of makeup is for it to stay on. The purpose of summer is to get wet and have fun. And the purpose of water is to wash things off, like makeup. So what’s the answer? Water proof  makeup.

I love cheek stains, (1) becaus they go on natural, and (2) becaus thry stay on for practicely forever. Even when you go swimming. These gorgeous blushes are called, Tarte Gel  Blush. $28 for a full sixed bottle. $15 for a mini.

This gorgeous foundation (formally known as, MakeSense™ Foundation) is water proof and comes in 12 different shades.

Water proof bronze is a must for pale summer faces. A good kind to try is, Supernatural Water proof bronzer by hour glass. Plus (oily faced people get ready!) its oil free! How cool is that?

Volume exact mascara is waterproof and available in 3 different colors (click here for the link to buy them,  http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://i0.wp.com/www.covergirl.ca/en_ca/prodimages/volumeexact_waterproof_mascara_1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.covergirl.ca/en_ca/products/product.php%3FproductId%3Dvolumeexact_waterproof_mascara&usg=__kCev_m61jDOYfG_oCVo3DhSnPj8=&h=535&w=330&sz=26&hl=en&start=1&sig2=GgE8-UqLuZ1SoA4Baf6UgA&um=1&tbnid=Dbw6Mewu2CYChM:&tbnh=132&tbnw=81&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dwaterproof%2Bmascara%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26um%3D1&ei=1ukZSvT8O9CElAe4wdHbCw).

Volume exact mascara is waterproof and available in 3 different colors. Reviews say that it has more then enough lash pumping powers and is easy to remove.

The next important thing that all summer makeup should have in it is sunscreen. Make sure it’s SPF 15 or more, anything less and it doesn’t make much of a difference. But even if your makeup does have SPF in it, always wear sunscreen.

The problem with most lipglosses is that the shine reflects harmful UVA rays onto your lips and then, even thought it sounds crazy, you ca get lip cancer. The solution, these lip glosses with SPF. They give you shine and protection and have atleast ASF 15 or more. Get them now at http:teamsugar.com

This concealer is all natural and has SPF, so you can help proect those age spots while hiding them.

This concealer is all natural and has SPF 20, so you can help protect those pesky age spots while hiding them. It's name, 100% pure peach pigmented natural concealer with SPF 20. Added bonus! I like to use concealer as eyeshadow. It brightens up your eyes without looking too obvious.

So, what floats your boat? Is it waterproof, or SPF? Or both? Well, for the really picky people, here’s some makeup that’s waterproof, and has SPF in it.

Fondation is important year-round and so is having fondation with sunscreen in it is too. And if it happens to be waterproof, that works too! RMK liquid fondation is both of those things and comes in 9 different shades. 5 of those yellow base, 4 of those pink base.

As you can see by my small range of products in this section there are not very many things that quallify.  So, what’s my solution? Mix and match. Buy waterproof foundation and mix it with some sunscreen. Or buy some waterproof lipstick and mix it with some SPF fortified lipstick. Just have fun! Good luck this summer! Kisses! *blows a kiss*

The little black dress, so cute, so hot, so… winter.  So, what to wear when your trusty black dress stops being so trusty? The little white dress. Preferably cotton, it is a light flowy dress that will make anyone feel pretty. Plus white reflects white, so less burning up for you.
