Expensive Doesn't Mean Better !!

This goes for everything gifts, taste, shoes and of course clothes, but here I want to focus in on skin care. The amount of money you spend on skin care has nothing to do with how your skin looks. And spending more money does not affect the status of your skin. What does affect the status of your skin are the products you use. An expensive soap by Estee Lauder is no better for your skin than an inexpensive bar soap such as Dove (even though both of those may be irritating and drying to skin- I don't recommend). On the other hand, an irritant-free toner by Neutrogena can be just as good as, or maybe even better than, an irritant-free toner by La Prairie, and any irritant- free toner is infinitely better than a toner that contains alcohol, peppermint, menthol, essential oils, eucalyptus, lemon, or other irritants, no matter how natural-sounding the ingredients are and regardless of the price or claim. DON'T BE FOOLED!! Spending less doesn't hurt your skin, and spending more doesn't necessarily help it. Simple, but true!!

Head Scarves are a MUST!

As you DISASTER LOVERS can tell fashion is forever evolving, changing form and repeating itself. One look that is a definite must is the headscarves. For me mainly because they’re perfect for those “I don’t feel like doing my hair” days but they look awesome even for those days when you hair looks fab. I decided to put together a simple DIY tutorial of to how wear several different scarves. Check out the pictures with directions on how to achieve each look. I also found a really cool video that shows 7 different ways to wear a scarf in under 3 minutes, check it out below! Hope you guys enjoy! Email if needed! Comment below!

                                                   BOW TO THE SIDE HEADBAND
Wrap medium length scarf from behind and bring ends to the side (right or left…whatever you like). Make a “bunny ears” bow for a more floppy looking bow. Play with it and make it as big as you like. And that’s it.

Take medium size square scarf and fold into triangle. Take the point of triangle and fold down twice to a reasonable width. Wrap scarf from behind (folded part against your head) then tie at the top of your head into a knot. Tuck loose pieces on their respective sides. Works whether hair is up or down.

This is an easy fix for “undone” hair worn down. Wrap medium/long scarf from behind then “hook” (cross then twist) in front. Tie the scarf in the back and that’s it.

Fold and scrunch width of medium/long scarf to thin it out. Wrap head scarf around head from behind then two part twist to the front or side. When done twisting, wrap twisted scarf into a knot.

Open up a long and wide scarf and wrap your head from behind bringing the top to the top of your head. Be sure to keep it as tight as you can without tying a knot. Twist scarf all the way down. Once all twisted, wrap scarf into a big knot tucking in all excess fabric.
