Review: Conair Infiniti You Curl + GIVEAWAY!

Conair Infiniti You Curl - Red 
Today's review will be on the Conair Infiniti You Curl. It is a curling wand, so it doesn't have a clamp to hold your hair, which is good because you will never have that little kink at the end of your curl, which tends to happen when using a standard curling iron. The Infiniti You Curl is a ceramic curling wand that has an adjustable heat setting that heats up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. This curling wand works for all hair types and doesn't make your hair burn or frizz.

Makeup's Expiration Date

Did you know that makeup has an expiration date? Well, it does! Everything from mascara to eye shadow expires. This is why it is important that you keep your beauty products organized and throw out all of your expired makeup. Every product has a different expiration date. For example, your mascara may only last you a couple months, while your lipsticks are probably safe for over a year, depending on how well you take care of them.

Dress Up, Dress Down: Jeans

Dress Up, Dress Down: Jeans

Today I am introducing a new blog category called "Dress up, Dress Down". Basically, it is when I take one clothing item and do a dressier look, and then a more casual look. I really enjoy this type of blog, because it teaches you all how to get multiple looks out of one clothing item. Today's Dress Up, Dress Down look is all about jeans. I love the look of dressed up jeans, because it looks so chic. I also love the casual look of jeans with a simple sweater, it looks casual, but put together at the same time.
