School Bag/Purse Essentials :)

Ever have those times when you stuck without chapstick or a pen, I recently organized my school bag and here's what I came up with!~njoy :)

Wallet-At my school we have vending machines so I always carry this around just in case something catches my eye!

Pencil Case-I found myself always running out of pencils, so now I carry a small case filled with pens, pencils,highliter, mirror, band-aids, and hand sanitizer.

Glasses-Well of course you have to see! :)

Ipod/Cellphone-Helps with those sleepy bus mornings! and emergancies..

Makeup Bag-Great for touchups, in mine I have lip gloss, mascara, chapstick, mini makeup brush, face powder, concealer, eyeliner, roll on perfume, neutral eyeshadow,foundation stick, MAC shadestick, eyeshadow brush, and roll on me these things will come in handy!

Body Spray-A life saver, ecpecially after gym when you sticky..or if it's really hot outside!

Book-Works if your bored in class or somewhere where there's not much to do!

Mini lotion-I like to be moisterized, you can never have enough lotion!

Toothbrush/Toothpaste,Flossers,Gum-For those who have braces always carry these things around there's nothing worse that walking around with food stuck in your teeth!

And last but not least...

Water bottle, Snack-Really good to have to stay hydrated and full, ecpecially for me becuase I don't eat lunch!

If you don't know my favorite store is TARGET :) well I was in there today and as you probley now they have the BEST clearance items! You go down an aisle and ba-bam there's those red stickered items shining in your face, you know you've hit the jackpot...well that is if anything that catches your eye is on clearance! Haha moving on today I found the greastest steal! I reached as high as I could to one of the top clearance shelfs and came across two once expensive items! To my disbelief it was SOAP&GLORY easy glistening Sweet Almond Dry Oil Body Gloss (retail price 12.99 clearance price 3.24!) & iFOAM ultra creamy Body Wash with antioxidant grapeseed oil, orange oil and M-SUDS moisture system! (retail 9.99 clearance price 2.48!) I then no longer needed what I originally went in Target for these where my new babies and they where coming home with me! lol. I have'nt really tried these yet but I know the Sweet Almond Dry Oil smells absolutly to die for, and the iFoam body wash smells great too! and looks very moisterizing which it claims...I know these products are carried in most targets but if you get a chance visit there chic, vintage website! Its really cute, and when I spend money on something I want it to look can tell they take pride in there old london look because they where originally sold in the U.K and still are. I can't wait to try them out and get back to you on how they where and if there really worth buying! Stay tuned dolls ;)

Wonder Wall- How to Clean Dirty Makeup Brushes!

Ok so you've all probley seen the a million and one ways on Youtube how to clean makeupbrushes, alot include using cheap shampoos, or roughly scrubbing the mess out of them. If you own natural or synthetic brushes using harsh shampoos and unproper treament can mess with the longevity of your brushes. Makeup brushes are an investment, don't you want to use them as long as possible? I got to thinking what could be a good way to clean them properly, without any harsh effects...learn more below

Items You'll Need!

1.Dr.Bronner's Magic Soap Pure Castile Soap ( any scent will do!)

2. Dirty Brushes!

3.Warm Water!

Just so you know Castile Soap is an all natural glycerin based cleansing agent, the oils in it remove dirt but don't strip the natural properties your brushes need!

1. First off you can wet your brushes with warm water being careful not to go over the barrel of the brush, this can cause mold and mildew leading to your brush rotting off the base or creating that yucky wet dog smell!
2. Create a small pool of the Castile Soap, not too much alittle goes far!
3. Dip small eyeshadow brushes or any small brush...we're saving our big brushes for last!
4. After doing that, take 1 brush and lightly swirl in the palm of your hand! Your going to notice makeup running out of your can wet the brush if you want extra lather. You'll find out this stuff is very concentrated!
5. Then once you sure all makeup is removed (repeat if brush is really dirty!) rinse clean until your sure no suds are left!
6. Sqeeze all excess water out and lay them out flat to dry!
7. Now if you have any Foundation brushes take them out wet them, apply a little castile soap to each brush!
8. Let them sit for a mintute or two!
If your brushes or Foundation is like mine it tends to stain my brushes this way of cleaning should completely remove the stain. If it doesn't try leaving the castile soap on there longer or repetive washing with the castile soap.
9. Now that they've sat there for a few take the brush and rub them continusly being sure to remove all makeup!
10. If all makeup and soap is removed lay them flat to dry or for kabuki brushes fluff and let stand!
Hope you try this method, and try castile soap..I swear it has like a billion uses!
