4) ELF Liquid Eyeliner in Black
This is hands down the best eyliner on the market and for the price ($2)? You can't beat that. I have been using this eyeliner for about 5 years and have always been going back to it. Have you ever tried the ELF Liquid eyeliner? Want to try it? Pick up yours here.

Homemade Pre-Shampoo Spray for Locs

Hey, Barbies and Kens!!! I am here to share a homemade pre-shampoo spray. What is a pre-shampoo spray you may ask? A pre-shampoo spray is a spray that helps to get rid of unwanted buildup and oils from your hair before you wash it.

Products Used
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
2. Distilled Water
3. Peppermint Oil/Tea tree Oil

How to Make
1. Pour 1/2 to a cup of ACV in an 8oz spray bottle.
2. Add 5 to 8 drops of peppermint or tea tree oil to the ACV
3. Add distilled water to about 1/2 to a 3/4 of the bottle. (depending on how much of the other 2 ingredients you used)

Directions
Spray product on your hair and massage it in with your fingertips. You can rinse out of your hair but if you choose, you can use a towel to get rid of the build from your hair. For better results, leave the product on your hair for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and follow up with the shampoo of your choice.

For demonstration purposes, you may watch the video below.


Thank you for reading and watching. Until tomorrow, stay fab and be creative.

XOXO,

Be Confident Don't be Distressed

Happy Thursday Barbies and Kens!!!!! Today I have a blog post for you. This outfit was easy to put together and very inexpensive.

For my outfit I wanted an effortless sexy look without trying too hard. With that in mind I went fro this Forever21 distressed sweater worn as a dress ($1.98), Steve Madden over the knee boots (old similar here).

To complete my outfit, I did a very neutral makeup look.  Being a mom don't excuse you for being sexy and chic.

Thank you for reading. Until next time, stay fab and be creative.

Buying a Luxury Item on a Budget

Everybody like to wear and own a piece of luxury item. These items are not cheap and usually requires us to be rich, thrifty or budget well. In this post, I will explain how you can achieve a piece of luxury without going broke.
I love to spurge on bags and shoes because I think I can pair them with inexpensive pieces. Also, these pieces are usually durable. When I attempt to buy these pieces, I usually;

1) Buy them when they are on sale if the store offer sales. I never buy items full price because they always go on sale. I also look for coupons to use on top of the sale as well as to give me free shipping if it is online. I also try to shop during major holidays or the changing of the seasons because most store try to sell all the past season items out. I also go to discount store like Ross, Marshalls, TJ Max, Off Sak Fifth Avenue or Nodstrom Rack. If I buy online, I use Ebates and get a percentage of what I pay for the item back with a check in the mail. Ebates is great if you shop online. Want to sign up click here.

2) Do not empty your bank account to buy the item. Put aside a manageable amount every week, 2 weeks or month. Every penny counts and you will get there eventually.

3) You can also buy the item preloved. There are so many consignment sites and used brand shops that sell luxury items that are in impeccable condition. Here are a few of the sites that I would recommend Tradesy, Fashionphile, Therealreal, Brandoff on Ebay, Gallery Rare Japan on Ebay, Brandworks on Ebay, Elady and Poshmark. These store have items at a fraction of what you would pay for it in the store and they are in great condition.

4) There are different tier of luxury items so buy what your pocket can afford. If you cannot buy the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, go for a Coach City Tote or a Michael Kors bag. They have the same look but different price tag.


These are the tips I have for buying a luxury piece on a budget. What do you do to buy your luxury items? Leave your comments in the comment section. I am eager to know.

Thank you for reading. Until tomorrow, stay fab and be creative.
XOXO,
JB

Get Rid of Bloating Instantly/ Teami Tea

Happy Hump Day Barbies and Kens!!!! I am here to share with you how you can get rid of your bloating instantly. The items you will need are Teami Tea and a waist trainer. This is something that lot of us females have to tend with. I know mine is cause from chewing gum, beans and lentils, whole wheat and fruit and veggies.
What do you do when you get bloated?
Instructions
1) Take a half a tablespoon of Teami Skinny Tea and put it in a tea packet or strainer, pour some hot water on it.
2) Allow the tea to steep for 1 to 2 minutes. If you allow it to steep longer or if you use too much, it will be too harsh on your stomach.
3) While the tea is steeping, put on your waist trainer.
4) After the tea is finished steeping, drink it.

To see the instructions in action, check out the video below.
If you are interested in buying the  tea you can get it here. They also have a colon tea if you would like to do a colon cleanse.

Thank you for reading and watching. Until tomorrow, stay fab and be creative.
