Inspiring 2011 Hairstyles

Hi Guys,

I have been seeing some really great hairstyles this year and we are already four months into the year. I myself have been rocking the same style for about three months. I would say my style is more toward the sexy waves trend. Three months is a long time so I thought I would hit the Internet it look up some style ideas. I found this great post from Allure Magazine on 31 new hairstyles for 2011. I was really excited to see the flip on there. I remember wearing a flip in high school. I was also excited to see the accessorized updo because I never wear my hair up. I'm can't wait to try this one out. Some of these styles aren't so new but are making a comeback. Check out the pictures of my favorites from the post. What styles are your favorites?

Black Milk Leggings

Okay, I maybe a little old but I just discovered the brand Black Milk who creates that most interesting leggings out there. I have always loved leggings. It the go to piece whenever your feeling a little lazy and don't want to put much effort into your wardrobe. At least that is how I see it. Just throw on a pair of leggings and you're good to go.

The Black Milk brand of leggings takes you even further as far as legging designs. I recently discovered the leggings through a NastyGal posting on facebook. NastyGal had them priced at $80 for the leg bones design but if you go on the Black Milk website they are only $70. Overall the price is between $70-$80. Heading to the BM website led me to a number of other designs that are pretty classic. Would you dare to rock a pair? I think I could. Check out some of the ones that I picked as my favorite.

Lovely Lemon Scrub

Good morning readers!

Blogger has finally came back to life. That was pretty sucky. I couldn't access my blog all day yesterday or this morning. I posted a post yesterday and now its gone. Its disappeared and not even in my draft..ugh!

With that said I wanted to share a great beauty tip that I found on I absolutley love her website. She has great tips and tricks. I really recommend everyone to sign up. She a very smart young lady. You just got to love her. So anyway I stumbled across her Kitchen Beautician post called DIY Lemon Scrub. Its basically a remedy to make your own scrub from ingredients in your own kitchen. Some of you probably already knew that but I usually have to go to the Spa and spend money because I'm very lazy and have no time to do things myself. I have pledge that I will try this at home remedies to save a little case in my pocket. Everything you need to make the scrub is listed below.

What you will need
  • 5 tablespoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lemon
First mix the olive oil and sea salt together. Once the salt gets coated by the oil, the lemon won’t dissolve it! Next cut the lemon in half and squeeze over the salt + oil. Mix and mash. (Feel free to adjust the recipe to your liking.) Then scrub away!!

Now that was easy! Hope you guys will try it out. I know I will.

Crackle Polish Deal from

Hey all my crackle polish lovers. I received an email from for 2 bottles of polish from Sassy Nails $12. The site says the value is $30 and that means the original price is $15. That is pretty expensive! I'm curious to try this brand. The formula is water-based and non toxic. That is a major plus for me. Just thought I would share to my followers. You only have 6 days to purchase.

XOXO - Lexi

Lower Lashes Are In

So we all know that most women are wearing false eyelashes today. Everyday I see a woman in false lashes that end up looking like paint brushes. Usually those are the lashes that are put on from the nail shops and are individuals. I have even gotten a pair done and its not comfortable. I have always thought about why don't we ever add false lashes to our lower lid. My lower lid is completely bare with no lashes. I would love to focus on my lower lid.
I recently discovered a brand called Lash Royalty that carries lower lid lashes. I love their designs because the lashes appear very natural looking. They are a little expensive at $10-$15 a pop but you can use them over and over by cleaning them. The lashes really make your eyes pop! The next time you want to add some lashes to your lid try Lash Royalty.

My first attempt at scotch tape mani

Over the weekend I tried to do a scotch tape mani. Let's just say I suck at it. I have to practice, practice, practice. The only downfall about this sort of mani is that it takes so long to do. It's also really hard because my 3 year old son always seems to want to bother me while I'm painting my nails. He seemed like he really was trying to annoy me while working on this mani. Well I tried and I will just have to keep trying to get it perfect. Take a look!

Royal Wedding Inspiration

I know I'm a little late posting my design for the royal wedding. I stayed up just to watch the fairy tale wedding. Kate looked wonderful in her wedding dress. There were so many flags waving that I got inspired to paint my nails the UK flag.

I'm so messy when it comes to designs and let's remember that I'm pretty new at this. I used a blue that I picked up from H&M and Stripe Rite polishes from Sally's. So I hope you guys like what I came up with. I attempted this twice.I think I did okay.
