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 (7N Mocha Latte) Review

Oh my gosh, I think this is my favorite Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Foam Color so far.  The last couple of times that I decided to dye my hair, I went with the redder shades, they came out nice, but harder to see under certain lighting. For this coming fall/autumn, I decided to go brown. I bought the Hello Bubble Foam Color in 7N Mocha Latte which came in the new "Girl's Day" packaging-I'm actually not sure who they are, but I'm guessing they are a K-pop group. This product is definitely one of my all time favorite! This box came with all the usual Hello Bubble Foam Color components; it included the hair colorant, a hair coloring cape/cover, a pair of gloves, and a small packet of conditioner (I prefer to use my own). From looking at the before and after photos on the box, I did not expect the color to be very noticeable on my hair.  The color itself seemed a little too dark to have any effect on my already dark hair.   To my surprise, this color gave me the

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
