D.I.Y Lemon Toner

Lemon Toner
Hello everyone! So have you ever herd the saying "when life gives you lemons make lemonade"? Well i say when life gives you lemons make lemon toner!! 


4 1-OZ. Plastic Bottles with lids

4 OZ. of Witch Hazel

12 drops of lemon essential oil

(If you could not tell from the bottles...this fills 4 1 OZ. bottles)

STEP 1: Pour 1 oz. of witch hazel into each bottle

STEP 2: Add 3 drops of lemon essential oil into each bottle and shake well

How to use:

Pour the toner onto a cotton ball. On a clean face, dab the cotton ball all over your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Keep doing this if your skin still feels oily. 

This lasts about a week because there are no fresh ingredients.



XOXO<3 Enjoy <3 Sarah

TREND TIME: Fall Edition

Fall Trends
Hey girls and guys!! So I don't know about you but i loveeee fall! Its so cozy and the trends are always soooo cute and trendy. I love adding different trends to my personal style. 
This fall there are many trends I have been seeing on the runways and in the magazine's that can be altered to fit into your everyday style. Adding touches of different trends are a great way to update your style with out spending thousands on a whole new wardrobe. 
  1. Crimson Eye Shadow

I love love love this look for the fall! Its so stunning and really warms up every ones eyes. No matter what color eyes you have this is going to look AH-MAZING on you. You can make it more dramatic by working the shadow into your crease as well as on your eyelid. Or keep in more simple and put it right on your lid and carry it under your eye (on your lower lash line).

Here are a few of my fav Crimson Shadows:

Rule by MAC (matte)

Mythology by MAC (lustre)
Copper/Crimson Shadow in Dazzling Metallics Cover Girl Trio #119

2.                                                                          Peek-a-Boo

Lace has been popping up all over different clothing items and i love it!!! Its really girly and sweet. I have seen this trend on sweaters, shirts and even jeans! No matter what store you go to i think you will be able to something with this trend. I got this purple shirt at Macy's for $19.99. This shirt has the lace detailing just in the back and i think it transforms a simple shirt it to a very cute one. A hit of lace is sexy with out being over the top, you want to give then somethin to think about ...right?!     

3.                                                                       Girls Gone Wild

A splash of animal print is so hot, and really big this time of year. It adds an unexpected pop to any outfit. My fav print is by far leopard, i'm very against using real furs and prints...i think there are so many other options. Thats a rant for another time. I think adding the animal print to your outfit with a killer pair of heels like the ones above is KILLER! <3 However there are soooo many great ways to add this trend into your closet. I have seen animal print blazers, bags, shirts, scarves and so much more! So yes you can spend a fortune of a pair of animal print Louis Vuitton heels or find a cheeper option some were like forever 21,, and really any department store.  

Hope this was helpful!! Please comment and let me know if you like the "Trend Time" kind of posts. 

Thanks so much! <3 xoxo Sarah
