I am oh so happy that today is my Friday. I’m really looking forward to the long weekend. I’m heading home to help my sister get beautiful for a wedding she’s in and then I am lucky enough to babysit my awesome nephew tomorrow night. Then Saturday off to one of my favorite places – Nantucket – to celebrate one of my closest friends birthdays!!!
I wanted to share this picture with you….how amazingly beautiful is Blake Lively in this photograph? I wish I could look like that! Her eye makeup is to die for and that hat is great!
In an effort to try and look this beautiful, thought I would share with you some little things to do before you go to bed at night – courtesy of Glamour Magazine. You’ll wake up feeling pampered, refreshed and rejuvenated and maybe even prettier…
1.) Braid wet hair for nice waves (I sometimes add a wave spray to enhance it for the morning)
2.) Try an overnight treatment. Whether it’s an intense night moisturizer, acne spot treatment or even…dare I say it…wrinkle treatments
3.) Moisturize. Everywhere. Your elbows…your knees….your toes
4.) Protect your blowout. Flip hair upside down, pull into a high pony and secure with a terry hair tie or these awesome Twistbands I received as a gift. They’re so soft it won’t damage hair and its wide enough that it won’t crease.
5.) Swipe on nourishing essential oils. When you wake up, you’ll look like you’ve had a facial
6.) Wear primer over skin care products. Yes, at night! It allows the products to sink in.
7.) Apply a hair mask. From VO5 Hot Oil to the top salon concoctions, no girl’s medicine cabinet is complete wihout a mask to meet your hair needs.
8.) Try a new kind of washcloth. Use an electronic complexion brush. Your makeup will look better in the AM.
9.) Self Tan, Let Dry. Take your time and wake up glow-ier.
10.) Change your pillowcase. Sleep on a satin pillowcase for smoother hair.
There you have it….try one or a few tonight!
