Ever heard of foam rolling? Me neither until a couple days ago! My gym recently created an hour long class dedicated to relaxing those pesky built-up muscle knots by using a foam roller. It feel like you’re giving yourself a deep tissue massage, and the best part is you can do it at home. Here are some basic exercises to try with a foam roller.

Running

I never imagined myself to take on the sport of running. With two brothers at home, my interests revolved around basketball, and yes, WWE Wrestling. But as I started high school, my parents encouraged me to let go of my WNBA dreams and give running a shot. In retrospect, I’m glad I did. Cause let’s be real, I’m no Lisa Leslie.

So sometimes I’m a boring person. Not all the time! Not even most of the time. Just… sometimes. And when I wake up in the morning and can just totally tell it is going to be one of those boring days I don’t put much effort into my appearance (which is actually fine; ladies we don’t need to be perfectly made-up dolls everyday).

In the event of a Boring Day I will put on my Boring Day uniform: typically a pair of jeans and a tank top. I pass right by my bag of beauty supplies (not putting in the time today, thanks) and my jewelry stand (nope, not in the mood to fiddle with tiny hooks and latches) and all my best summer accessories on my way out the door. But wait! Right before I leave I see on a hook right beside the door: a scarf! A light, breezy, colorful summer scarf that is going to save me from the Boring Day Uniform. So here’s the challenge readers mine: one girl, one outfit, one accessory. How many different looks can you get out of this formula? Way more than I thought, for one! Read on for all the ways to wear your favorite scarf this summer.

At a family event over the weekend I mentioned how my hair was feeling extra dry lately. That sparked a family conversation on how to fix my hair situation. And that led me to covering my head in coconut oil last Saturday night.

 

When it comes to makeup, skepticism is usually my go to attitude. When every cosmetic label screams “NO. 1 AGE DEFYING, ANTI-WRINKLE, PORE-ERASING, SUN-PROTECTING, FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH!” it’s hard to take them seriously. But, I put my skepticism aside to try a new product by one of my favorite (and most trusted) makeup companies: Benefit Cosmetics. It’s called “the POREfessional” and I am officially hooked

I recently had my nails painted at a salon and was very disappointed when the next day I noticed that they were already starting to chip. Why pay all that money when it doesn’t even last, I thought to myself? I’ve gotten artificial nails before, but I began considering it gain after this mishap. My nails are in really ruff shape at the moment and I want something that is going to disguise them. But before I take any further steps, I wanted to make a pro and con list for getting artificial nails. I hear lots of rumors about how bad they are for your nails and health, so I want to make sure I’m making the right decision first. But which is better, gel or acrylic? Good thing I’m weighing the pros and cons of both!
