A Letter to Linny


Dear Me: 


What if I told you that all the worries you have crowding your mind right now will not mean anything in a couple of years? What if I told you that all the years you were being teased and bullied for being short and different would mean absolutely nothing? And what if I told you that the boys who rejected you and called you ugly would be dumbfounded once they saw how pretty you're going to grow up to be? If I were you I would: 


1. Enjoy your youth and years of innocence - laugh, run, love and play as if you were that white untouchable dove. 

2. Don’t let anyone tell you you're worthless 

3. Follow all those dreams you had no matter how hard they seem to achieve. Dreams are supposed to scare you but with hard work and perseverance you will obtain each and one of them

4. Don’t take everything personal 

5. Travel, travel, and travel

6. Don’t fall in love with the wrong person
7. Workout 
8. Stop doubting yourself (Damnit!) you were built for greatness and you're brighter than     you play yourself to be

9. Block out all the negative criticism from your parents, friends, and family

10. Be you... be happy...be weird... be wildly free

11. Always lend a hand to those who need you even if it goes unnoticed. 

12.  LIVE LIFE 
13. Try to understand those narrowed minded individuals (they don't know any better) because not everyone is going to be accepting of you, your ideas, and your views
14. Friends come and go but keep those who are genuine close 

15. Surround yourself with people who are smarter and more successful than you. This will help you work harder to get where you want to be. 
16. Listen and Understand ( you're not always right, it's part of life darling!)
17. LOVE YOURSELF no body else will love you more than yourself




Much LOVE,


LINNY

Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum 
This fragrance is prominent, sexy, amazing, and unique.

Murad Clarifying Wipes for blemish prone skin
OH EM GEE! These wipes are everything! I have added them to my skin care routine (has not changed) and it has helped me drastically with these acne flares i've been getting due to stress and hormonal changes.

European Wax Center Slow it Body Lotion $20.00
European Wax Center Ingrown Hair Serum $25.00
European Wax Center Slow it Body Wash $20.00


So, it is safe to say that this year has been filled with "first times" and with waxing being a first time experience I've had to take on methods to keep my skin free from ingrown hairs and also minimizing the hair growth. Let's face it, waxing is painful so the longer it takes for the hairs to come out the longer I stay away from my waxer (MAJOR PLUS). I definitely do not regret opting to waxing and tossing out the razors because the results are marvelous. IT'S BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I HAVE EVER MADE!!!!!! if you haven't tried waxing, go and try it, seriously! Although it's a little painful the results are amazing and besides I wouldn't steer you the wrong way =)

The Wet Brush Detangling Brush
Tangle Teezer Detangling Brush


The Wet Brush and The Tangle Teezer are amazing! you've probably heard about all the hype on the internet and there are far way too many reviews on these items so I will spare you the time but just know these two items are AMAZING for people with curly hair.


Michael Kors Bracelet
3-Pear Shaped Bracelet I made
Michael Kors Bracelet was gifted to me for my birthday from one of my great friends and I love to pair it with this handmade pear shaped inspired bracelet I created.


Michael Kors Lexington Chronograph
Gold Chain bracelet i made
Gold Fishtail Bracelet I made

Lancome XL Cils Booster $24.00
YSL Faux Cils Mascara $30.00
Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller  $12.00
CVS Eye Makeup Remover $5.99  
THIS IS ANOTHER "OMG" PRODUCT!!!!! This Lancome XL Cils Booster has became a holy grail; it elongates your eyelashes and makes them look like falsies all while adding protection. Ever since I started using Mascara I disregarded the fact that my eyelashes were "hairs" and required TLC. So if you're looking for a product that conditions and adds drama to your lashes GO OUT AND GET IT AND YOU'LL THANK ME LATER, promise!

YSL Faux Cils (Original) mascara is amazing. It gives you that false lash effect which every girl yearns for when purchasing a mascara tube. Of course the price is absurd but I haven't found anything comparable.

Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller (tinted) has been a holy grail for years.


SmashBox Camera Ready CC Cream $42.00
It's light, effective, and looks flawless on the skin once applied and set lightly with a powder. It has an SPF of 30 and corrects blemishes. I wouldn't suggest applying this product with your fingers; however, I love stippling it on and blending it out with a brush then setting it with a powder like I previously mentioned. REMEMBER, a little goes a long way .

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay $7.99 
Along with the Murad Clarifying Wipes this has been helping me with my acne. It has helped me tremendously with the excess amount of oil that my face produces along with minimizing my pores. You can use this miracle all over your body or just on problem areas. IT'S AMAZINGGGGGG! 


Tootles,

Do you like to 4play?

Hi Dolls, 

I suppose this is going to be sort of a review for those in search of a good curling wand. I recently (by recently I truly mean 3 months ago) purchased the Nume 4 Play... Just because. There was no rhyme nor reason for this purchase. 

I'm sure there are tons of reviews on this brand but not many on the 4 Play. Nevertheless, if you would ask me the company decided on a rather naughty name for this TOOL but after much thought and consideration I concluded that the name suits this tool perfectly since it is a 4 in 1 wand, which you can play around with and create many  fabulous hair styles. One iron, four attachments with adjustable digital controls which allows you to play around with the temperature, seriously why have a drawer full  tools and wires when you have such a state of art iron that does absolutely everything except straighten?

The 4Play includes a reversible 9mm-13mm attachment, 19mm attachment, 25mm attachment, 
and a 32mm attachment. 

9mm-13mm attachment creates super tight curls and amazing volume
19mm- creates banana curls 
25mm- looser and classic looking curls
32mm- big voluminous waves/curls

I seriously do not have anything bad to say about this tool at all other than the fact I burnt my ear
and my hand so bad I jumped, swore, and cried like a hyena on drugs (quite can't picture a hyena on 
on drugs but it's the only crazy analogy that my brain fabricated). I don't know about you guys but I TRULY 
despise the discomfort and pain from a minor burn. SOOOOO in order to soothe the pain and 
burning sensation I usually spray Dermoplast which is a pain relieving spray and also my one of
my HOLY GRAIL product. This spray is typically used for bug bites, blisters, 
minor cuts, sunburn & minor burns. 


Thanks to this random purchase and Nume I am now getting rid of all of my other curling tools. 
I did list them on Instagram for sale but haven't really gotten any inquiries so my next step 
would be gifting them away to someone who will put them to use. 

For those of you wondering the 4Play costs $229.00 but NUME is currently having and listed
it for $189.00







19mm curls


32 mm waves/curls



25mm curls


Have any of you tried the 4Play or Dermoplast? 

Xoxo
