  GET YOUR CLARISONIC MIA FIT  while the sale lasts!!!

Mia Fit Clarisonic, Face Cleanser, Cleansing Brush, Bobbi Brown Lathering Tube Soap, Soothing Cleaning Oil, #FaceByClarisonis

Mia Fit Vs Original Clarisonic- What I love best about the Mia Fit is the portability and how small it is.

As someone who travels weekly the charger of my original isn’t very travel friendly where as the Mia Fit charger is very small. I love that it has an extended setting.

Setting 1= 60 Seconds Total – 20 Seconds Forehead – 20 Seconds Chin and Nose – 10 Seconds each Cheek.

Setting 2 = Exact same as setting 1 but an extra 20 seconds for Neck and Décolleté ( This is the setting I use in the shower)

Watch my Mia Fit Tutorial & Review on YouTube

Today I used the Bobbi Brown Lathering Tube Soap with my Clarisonic an also talked about how to use a Cleansing Oil when using a Clarisonic. Watch my Winter Skin Care Routine to hear event more about the Soothing Cleansing Oil & Lathering Tube Soap and you can read the Winter Skin Care Routine | Dry Skin blog post for all my favorites for cool climates!

How to use: Charge for 18 hours before first use. Wet your skin and brush head with warm water. Apply cleanser. Choose a setting (setting 1 provides 60 seconds of cleansing for delicate, everyday cleansing and setting 2 provides 80 seconds of power cleansing post-workout or to remove long-wearing makeup). The pulsing T-Timer® guides you for optimal cleansing results. Spend 20 seconds on your forehead, 20 seconds on your nose and chin, 10 seconds on each cheek and 20 seconds on your neck (when using setting 2 only). Finish by rinsing your brush head with water and return to the charger.

I have lived in 4 states in my life and I really wanted to get Washington, funny because I only lived there for 3 years. However those 3 years have changed my life. I moved to Seattle for a promotion in 2012. After moving there I was able to meet an awesome group of friends. I met a gal that I worked with and we became instant Bestie’s.  She was going to a destination wedding for a mutual friend and she asked me to go with her.

I thought there was NO WAY of getting the time off so last-minute working in retail, I asked my boss and she said yes. After arriving in Playa Del Carmen Mexico I got to meet the group of friends that traveled in from all over for the wedding.  I just so happened to meet a young man, Justin, who was there on vacation with his parents who became instant friends with the groom of the wedding I was attending.

We were able to get tot know each other over the course of the 4 days and found out that he lived in Ohio!! I was so bummed as I was living in Seattle. Five weeks later he came to visit me in WA, 3 months after that he moved to Seattle to be with me. We moved in together and this August we will be celebrating our 1 year wedding Anniversary!  We just bought a home in Salt Lake City Utah but I will always remember those amazing 3 years in Washington. I’m so happy I have my State Necklace as a great reminder of those wonderful memories.

Fashion Emergency Kit with Free Printable List & Tutorial

Fashion Emergency Kit Cover

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #WardrobeSolutions #CollectiveBias

After years of working in the beauty and fashion industry we have spent countless hours backstage at various fashion shows, photo shoots, weddings, etc.  Not surprisingly, we have learned a thing or two because when a fashion emergency strikes- and they ALWAYS strike. The most important is being prepared with a fully stocked kit! The pros call this a “prop kit”.

For those of you who don’t know what a prop kit is, it’s usually a large suitcase filled with fashion emergency fixes.

So with back-to-school upon us, we were delighted that we were asked to share our own favorites we keep on hand, because while we may not need a suitcase full of supplies, (although your teenage daughter may argue this) there are still some things I’ve learned to keep on hand in my own personal fashion emergency kit and they are great for everyone to keep in your car, desk or locker. We’ve even included a handy FREE printable list you can use while you are doing your back-to-school shopping.

Let’s get started!


Scotch-1

 

But first, let’s take a selfie… kidding!

First let’s talk about the different fashion emergencies and how, like a girl scout, we can be prepared.

Emergency #1:

You just got the CUTEST pair of pants, you are so excited to wear them- except they are waaaay too long. And you don’t have a sewing machine stowed away in your car.

Solution: Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape.

Adjustable-strip-hem-scotch

 

Why we love it: Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape allows you to change the hem length of your jeans, pants, skirts or dresses. It is adjustable so you can switch up the length depending on whether you are wearing high heels or flats without commitment! That means you can totally swap jeans with your besties ala “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” style, even if you aren’t all the same height! It has a perforated liner and doesn’t require any ironing or sewing so it is SUPER EASY to use.

Emergency #2:

Bra strap broke! Or seam came undone. Or your tank top strap broke. Or your prom dress strap. Yes. All of these things happen ON & OFF the runway.

Solution: Scotch™ Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips


Scotch-hem-tape

 

Why we love it: EVERYONE male and female should have a sewing kit in the car- except this is better. It’s like having a sewing kit without needing to sew! Requires no ironing either. Since most of us don’t lug around an iron. 😉

Emergency #3:

You were in a morning rush and got chalky white lines on your shirt from your deodorant!

Solution: Scotch™ Essentials White Mark Eraser


Scotch-3

 

Why we love it: This is basically a no-brainer. Who wants those ugly marks? No one. Problem solved. This is tiny and fits well in your purse or kit!

Emergency #4:

You are a huge animal lover and had so much fun snuggling your pets before running out the door. Only now you are wearing half their coat on your clothes.

Solution: Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller


Lint-roller

 

Why we love it: This super sticky roller is a must have if you are around any pets, fabrics, or people that might shed! Let’s make sure our black pants LOOK black and not grey because they are covered in who knows what kind of fibers. Ew.

Emergency #5:

You have the cutest shirt- only problem is it leaves a gap where it buttons across your chest. It doesn’t matter how big you get the shirt, it still leaves a gap. Leaving you in an oversized, ill-fitting shirt that still shows your bra!

Solution: Scotch™ Essentials Wardrobe Tape Strips

 

Scotch-tutorial-fashion-emergency-kit
This shirt is a little to deep on the v-neck

 

Scotch-tutorial-fashion-emergency-kit-must-haves
Wardrobe Tape Strips

 

Scotch-tutorial-4
Remove one side of the tape strip backing

 

Scotch-tutorial-6
Press firmly with the exposed tape side down

 

Scotch-tutorial-8
Remove the other side of the tape backing to expose the tape

 

Scotch-tutorial-9
It will look like this

 

Scotch-tutorial-10
Place the fabric where you want it to cover. Press firmly
Scotch-tutorial-final
Now the shirt neck is just right!

 

Why we love it: Scotch™ Essentials Wardrobe Tape Strips is like a superhero swooping in to rescue you from that annoying gap. Skin and fabric friendly, you just need to stick a piece between the two pieces of your blouse to hold it together. As you can tell from this tutorial it is basically fool proof! Easy, peasy!

Emergency #6:

Your skirt is so staticky that it is stuck to your leg and riding up in weird places

Solution: Hairspray 

Why we love it: You can do double duty keeping your clothes AND hair in place. It doesn’t need to be fancy. 🙂

Emergency #7:

New cute white shoes meet black scuff marks!

Solution: Melamine Foam “Eraser”

Melanine-Foam-cleaner

 

Why we love it: You can clean your house or your shoes with this little eraser. Love anything that works double duty!

Emergency #8:

Your shirt looks more wrinkly than an 90’ year old who has never worn sunscreen.

Solution: Wrinkle release spray

Why we love it: Wrinkles are cute on your grandma, but not on your clothes.

Emergency #9:

You are ready to dance the night away and an hour in your feet are killing you!  

Solution: Foot cushions

Why we love it: Beauty does not always need to be painful. These little guys will keep your feet feel great and prevent slipping and toe scrunching. This will help you walk in heels without wobbling around like you are just learning to walk.

Emergency #10:

You’ve got a new pair of shoes that aren’t broken in and your feet are not going to love them.

Solution: Blister Stick

Why we love it: Do a little pre-planning and swipe on your heels and anywhere else that might rub before you head out and you will be blister free!

Emergency #11:

You are a messy eater and your clothes prove it.

Solution: Stain remover wipe or stick

Why we love it: Because a girls got to eat! Sometimes accidents happen and these are perfect for not only keeping you looking great but making sure stains don’t set into your clothes.

 


 

Scotch-4

 

These items are perfect to keep stocked in your car, purse, desk OR in your teenage daughter’s locker! Because being a teenager is hard enough without worrying about a fashion emergency!

 

Make sure to pick a case that’s big enough to hold all of the essentials, but not so bulky you wouldn’t be able to carry it with you— Target has a great selection of makeup bags.

 

Scotch-kit

 

Choose one that fit easily into a medium-size purse. Then take our back-to-school Fashion Emergency Kit shopping list with you to Target and never be unprepared again!

Dutch & Fishtail Braid Tutorial |

Braid Tutorial on the blog today just in time for your summer vacation!

Hello Beauties and Welcome BACK!!

I live in Salt Lake City and it has been hot hot hot so I have been rocking a lot of braids lately. I took my favorite Dutch Braid or what I call my headband braid and mixed it with my favorite fishtail braid. This braid is perfect for keeping you cool on those hot days and getting that hair pulled back and away from your face.

Braid Tutorial, Beach Braids, Beach Hair, Fishtail Braid, Dutch, Headband, Headband Braid, Long Hair, Hair, Long, Braids

Today I wanted to create you guys a Braid Tutorial that’s super easy to do and looks pretty too.  I was inspired by looking back through my honeymoon photos where I was rocking braids the entire time. 🙂 and yes LOL Melissa and Nate came with us on our honeymoon and we had an amazing time!! We were there for a week alone and then they came to join us the second week. If you want to follow me on my crazy day-to-day life, Follow me on SnapChat-DeyneceMarie.  XO

 

Braid Tutorial Perfect For The Beach!!


Here are the items needed to achieve this braid, click the image to get it. 🙂

Another great thing about this braid is you can do them together as I did or keep them separate. If I don’t have more than 5 minutes I will just do the fishtail braid without the top dutch braid, but if my hair is already curled and I am just wanting my hair our of my face I will just do the headband braid. The headband braid is also great for that day you don’t have the time to wash your hair, spray in a little dry shampoo and you are good to go.
