Gel Manicure at Home
I have a confession! I have NEVER had a gel manicure. I'm cheap and manicures mean making small talk! I would rather stay home in my pajamas and drink "coffee"! Today I am going to give myself my very first gel manicure!

I really wish I could tell you that I love my natural hair color. I believe (I've been dying it for a while!) that it is a strawberry blonde and I used to get compliments on it all the time. The past five years I have been dying it just about every color I can think of, black, dark brown, red, bright red, and even brighter red. I wanted a light blonde for summer. Not platinum blonde but a pretty blonde with a smidgen of a golden color. Now my hair pulls yellow tones like CrAzY! So I knew if I went blonde I would need to follow up with a toner to cut that yellow shit out! I'm going to try out Wella's Color Charm T18 Toner, Lightest Ash Blonde... Let's see what happens!

*Oatmeal is an exfoliate and moisturizer. Oatmeal contains 18 essential amino acids, your face can absorb these amino acids, making it an ideal ingredient to help heal blemishes and repair damaged skin.

Regular pureed avocado fruit facials on acne prone skin may help kill acne bacteria to prevent or treat breakouts. Avocados are rich in fatty acids which makes them an ideal moisturizer. I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing avocados are... and I'm NOT going to tell you because you need to hear it from Sandra!!!
