My Favorite Things/Tips For The Summer

Summer is here, I would like to share some tips/products that I think are worth trying out.
(Note: I am not being paid by any of these companies for recommending them, I'm sharing these with you because I truly think they are great products.)

Tip #1: Keep yourself hydrated! We all know that it's very important to stay hydrated, particularly on a very hot day.  If you don't fancy drinking plain water, and is looking for a healthier alternative to quench your thirst, do try this new 100% raw coconut water from Harmless Harvest.  It's the tastiest coconut water in a bottle that I've ever had so far.  I normally do not like the taste of any bottled coconut waters that are out in the market right now, they either taste slightly milky or they have a bunch of additives in them.  This company apparently preserves the authentic flavor of the organic coconuts by using a manufacturing systems of "straight coconut-to-bottle bottling and high pressure processing" which helps retain all the flavor, aroma, and nutrients of the raw coconuts. They are kind of expensive, about $4-6 per bottle depending on where you buy them from, but they are worth it.  I'm completely hooked on them! You can go to their official website for more info.  Oh, and if you have cute little doggies or pets at home, don't forget to keep them cool and hydrated as well <3

Tip #2: Don't forget to put on your sunscreen before you head out! It's important to protect your skin from sun damage.  To do that, I like to use my Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face & Body Stick Suncreen with sun protection factor (SPF) 70. Technically I think you only need to use sunscreen with SPF 30 for UVA/UVB protection, but I guess it doesn't hurt if a product has more SPF.  I really like this particular sunscreen because it comes in a deodorant-like container and you can apply it to your face and body without having to touch it, so your hands don't have to feel greasy and sticky at all.  It's actually really convenient to take with you outside.  It feels weightless and non-greasy on the skin.  Love it!

Tip #3: Protect your eyes when you go outside! The best defense against eye and eyelid damage is to wear sunglasses when you head out. Even on overcast days, UV can penetrate through clouds and haze, so it's best to wear your sunglasses year round.  When choosing your sunglasses, aside from looking at the style, make sure they provide 100% UV protection and that it's large enough to shield your eyes away from the sun.  For how to choose the right sunglasses for your face shape, check out my previous post!

Tip #4: Last but not least, don't be afraid to wear some vibrant summery colors!  If you're not comfortable wearing colorful clothing, try having some colors on your nails at least.  If you're the creative type, go for some nail art/design.  I recently found a cute mini nail art tool kit from Sally Hansen.  The kit had 1 detailing brush, 1 striping brush, and 1 marbling & dotting tool.  A perfect little kit for just $6-7.  It didn't come with any instructions on how to use the tools, but I'm sure you can look it up elsewhere for info and  ideas.  If you feel like jazzing up your nails, do try this kit out!

Oh So Cute! Disney Tsum Tsum Lip Smacker Lip Balm Collection

How many lip balms can anyone really use? - probably not that many, but how can you resist these cute Disney Tsum Tsum lip balms?  The suggested retail price is about $4.95 each, which is not bad until you realized that you can't just buy one and not the others.  I ended up walking out of the store with 4 super adorable lip balms, and $20 less in my wallet...but it's all worth it (I think) These lip balm pots are formulated to moisturize and leave a translucent shine on your lips.  They are also considered collectible items with 4 special edition flavors.  I don't know how long they will be available for purchase,  but I did find mine at a local Walgreens recently.  I'm pretty sure you can check out other major drugstores around your city, or visit Lip Smacker online to buy them.  I hope they will come out with more characters in the future. <3 Mickey: Marshmallow Pop Minnie: Strawberry Lollipop Winnie the Pooh: Honey Pot Stitch: Blueberry Wave

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7R Raspberry Red) Review

I've been looking forward to getting my hair colored and it finally happened, thanks to a couple of lovely family members that helped me out!  Sorry it took me a while to review the Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color, but I just got it done yesterday and here's what I think about it.   I normally get my hair colored at the Salon, but this time I decided to do it myself (well, I didn't get it all done entirely by myself...but mainly because I wanted an even coating all around so I decided to ask for some assistance.) I think the Hello Bubble Foam Color is actually quite convenient and easy to handle even by yourself,  if you don't care about sectioning your hair into smaller bunches.  Treat it like you are shampooing your hair, and it will probably come out alright.  Before you start dying your hair, I would recommend applying a bit of vaseline or baby oil around your hairline and on your ears as well, so that your skin won't get stained if yo

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color (7P Vintage Rose Pink) Review

At the end of 2014, I wanted to change my hair color, but I didn't have anything specific in mind.  I went to the local drugstores in my area and looked at a lot of colors and read their ingredients--and I went home feeling uninspired by all of it.  So I thought, maybe I should just dye my hair the same raspberry red from Hello Bubble as I did before.   I went online to shop for it, and that led me to the new color called 7P Vintage Rose Pink. I knew instantly that was the color I wanted to try!  I had a great experience with this brand the first time when I used it ( Check Out My Previous Post For 7R Raspberry Red ), so I wasn't worried about the formula, but more about how and if the color would turn out on my hair.   Once again, Hello Bubble Foam Color did not disappoint me! I loved it!  Why I like the Formula :  I've mentioned in my previous post that I really like the foam formula.  It's non-drippy, and extra easy to apply by yourself (this time I re
