Word's of Wisdom

 
"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."
— Audrey Hepburn

There is no denying Kim Kardashian and Rihanna both have amazing style and theres no doubt that they both chose to wear this very chich navy Givenchy dress just only a week apart. Rihanna was spotted rocking this dress in a more conservative manner which is not the norm for the style icon. Rihanna paired the dress with a layered necklaces and an updo, very similar to Kimmy. However Kim Kardashian's wore the dress with a python Louboutin heels. Who do you think wore it best? Leave your comments on the post...

Summer Lip Care!



Why is that us ladies don't care much for our lip especially during the summer times? It's always the eyes, our neck, our hands, and those feets, lol. What about our soft and juicy pout? Ahh no one likes chapped lips or a lined mouth, which only gets worse with increased sun exposure during the summer. Why not give your lips a little extra TLC with these summer lip care tips to keep them healthy and soft. 
2012 Summer Lip Care
  • Your lips need SPF just like the rest of your skin!
  • Overexposure to the sun can cause your lips to dry out and become flaky. Use a lip pumice or a toothbrush to exfoliate your lips
  • When at home or overnight, apply a more intensive lip treatment. Vitamin E or Vitamin C will provide more hydration than your every day lip balm
  • Use a lip primer before lipstick to add extra barrier between your makeup and harsh environmental factors than cause aging!

How To Make Your Pedicure Last Longer



There is something about the summer when it comes to your beauty routine. Ladies you know it you have to shave everyday, use extra hair products for your frizz battle, and oh yeah get pedicures more often than once every three months. Diva's your toes are on a constant display, wearing those jellies of course. A good polish job is more important than ever during these hot months. I don't know about you but being a fashionista on a budget pedi's cost $25 a pop weekly so in between I usually do an at home treatment. You can join me to!


To Prep: 
1. Don’t use nail polish remover. The nail bed has to be completely free of oils before painting for your longest lasting manicure. Most removers are fortified with vitamin oils and glycerine, creating a slippery surface for polish that leads to chips. Skip the nail polish remover and scrub nails with a brush (an old toothbrush will do) and hand soap instead, then dab on a small amount of 70% rubbing alcohol-30% water solution with a lint free cotton pad, like these Swisspers Cotton Rounds ($2.89).
2. Use a crystal file. Traditional files made from cardboard and metal, and are too harsh. Instead, opt for a crystal file, like this Crystal Nail File ($12) from Sephora, which smooths the edge of the nail instead of ripping into it.
3. Make sure cuticles are properly pushed back. Cuticle left on the nail bed can cause the polish to peel up. If you’re doing your pedi at home, use this Tweezerman Pushy Cuticle Pusher ($17).
4. Choose your base coat wisely. Choose the same brand of base as your top coat and polish because, all brands formulate their products to work best together. I recommends Orly ‘Bonder’ Base Coat ($7.10), a rubberized base coat that grips the polish and makes it go on smoother.
 During Application:
Never paint in a draft. This causes bubbles! Only expose your toes to cool air after two coats of polish has been applied to the nail.
Use a good top coat. I recommend Seche Vite Quick Drying Top Coat ($9.99).
Try nail wraps instead of polish. Dry nail polish or nail wraps like OPI Lacquer Strips ($12) or Sally Hansen Salon Effects because they are “easy and long wearing.”
Use a drying accelerator. Quick drying drops like Qtica Half Time Drying Accelerator ($19) extends the wear of polish and leave polish rock hard in 5-10 minutes.
Post-Pedicure:
Avoid contact for 30 minutes. While your polish may seem dry after 5-10 minutes, avoid direct contact on the toes for at least 30 minutes. This means no closed-toe shoes, walking in sand, or dancing in the streets. Sorry!
Apply ointment to calluses. To keep heels and hard callus areas smooth between pedicures, use Kerasal Moisturizing Foot Ointment ($9.99) which contains salicylic acid and urea.
Moisturize. ”A good moisturizer is also essential,” I recommend Weleda “Skin Food” or Ahava Mineral Hand Cream ($21).
Reapply a thin layer of topcoat after 5-7 days. About a week or so after your pedicure, reapply use a thin top coat, like Revlon Top Coat or Wet N’ Wild Top Coat, which protect the polish without appearing too thick.
Hide chips with a coat of glitter. Apply a coat of glitter on the tip of the nail bed, similar to a French manicure but with glitter instead of a white stripe. You can also apply glitter to the whole nail, and then always follow with a thin layer of top coat.
Cover chips with polish and a thin layer of top coat. It’s very simple to fix a chipped nail. “Get the color or a very similar color and dab a very thin layer of polish to cover the chip. Then apply a thin layer of top coat.” Now, you’re good to go!
Hopefully this has been helpful for my readers! Please follow me on twitter @missdiva87 and share your pedi stores!

Going Gaga For Giuseppe?

It seems every where you look; magazines, runways or at your local mall everyone has gotten a pear of these Lady Gaga inspired heels. The Giuseppe Zanotti T Strap Sandal retails for $895, but you can get a similar look from Chinese Laundry and heels.com for a fraction of that cost. 
Who knows the difference! So diva's I encourage you to save yourself hundreds especially if your keeping it fashionable on a sardine budget.
