It has been so long since I have posted and so much has happened that I want to share. I guess that for a later post though. Today lets get down to business with a VIBRATING Flat Iron. I know what your thinking, the products they come out with now a days are crazy! Well this one sounds funky ,but it is absolutely genius! It actually works guys, so Im bringing it to my blog and I am also doing a giveaway.
I have tried this first hand and I love it to straighten or curl my hair. (I will be showing you a tutorial at the end of how to do both)
This is the Asavea Vibe Vibrating Flat Iron Buy it Here.

Swivel Cord So when Curling It doesn’t get tangled in your hair
Automatic shut off after 60 min
Fiberglass technology helps retain moisture to your hair

You can turn the vibration mode on or off
When vibration mode is on, it only vibrates when clamped shut!
NONE seriously It works so well I cant think of
As I have been trying this for the past couple weeks I actually prefer the Vibrating mode to be on when Im straightening my hair. The reason why is because it completely eliminates frizz and smooths my hair to the point that It even looks like I put anti frizz product in it when I didn’t. Whenever I curl my hair I don’t use the vibrating mode.
So I will be showing you how I straighten and Curl my hair in the video below. I honestly do think that this flat iron is amazing and worth a try. I recommend it 100%!

I know its been such a long time, but I promise I’m back and all my technical problems are behind me. So I know what the question is that you probably have.. What have I been doing? Well I’m glad you ask I have been binge watching Pretty Little Liars. I am not kidding in no way shape or form. I have grown rather obsessed with the show. If you haven’t watched it let me fill you in on the plot. Basically in a small town full of secrets where a group of 5 girls keep lots of secrets. One day one of the girls goes missing and a year later is found dead. The whole question is who killed her? and why do the other 4 girls keep getting texts from a person named A. Honestly it has kept my husband and I on our toes.
So what does that have to do with today? Well in Season 3 ,Hanna Marin, A character from the show cuts her hair and has some beautiful hairstyles for short hair. Some of which I want to recreate and show you how to do.
Not only do I want to show you these hairstyles, but I also partnered up with Asavea * To bring to you todays video & blog post. They recently launched a new Hairstyling tool and you guys seemed to really love it when I shared their hairstyling straightener brush. So I thought I would also share this beautiful Gold Titanium Hair Curling Wand.
(* This video & post is sponsored, so I do receive compensation for sharing this product with you. But all my opinions are honest and I truly do love this Hair Curler and recommend it.)
So think of this as a review & hair tutorial in one! Also stay tuned to the very end because, just like with the Straightening brush post, I will be GIVING ONE of these AWAY.
In the video below I will be showing you how to do this textured, curly, messy Lob hairstyle. This is a iconic Hanna Marin Hairstyle. She rocks this textured lob more than any other hairstyle.
This was so easy to do and surprisingly quick. I used the Spiral Barrel to achieve it and I love how it turned out. What I love most about this hairstyle is that you can really dress it up or down just by adding more texture and breaking it up more with your fingers.
So here are some of the Asavea Hair curler Pros:
The Gold & Ceramic material help to keep your frizz under complete control
It heats up quickly and cools down quickly
Your hairstyle lasts longer than other curlers (or at least it did for me, It lasted me 3 days and I didn’t have to recurl my hair at All!)
Its beautiful! I know you love the GOLD!
It has a Swivel Cord so Its easy to use without the cord getting caught or in the way.
The controls are easy to use and you can decided how hot you want the curler to be.
The Second hairstyle I did is a messy, easy undo. I like to do this on day three when my curls are still intact but maybe not as voluminous and I feel like putting my hair up. All you need for this hairstyle is a teasing comb & some bobby pins.
I love this because you can again make it as messy or as formal as you want. Its perfect for short hair because the braided back keeps all those little short layered hairs into place without bobby pins.
Ok ok, pictures are nice but lets see how to actually accomplish this. I promise it looks like I spent a lot of time doing this hairstyle but I really didn’t!
I have missed you guys! I know I have been gone a while so sorry, life has twisted and turned on me. But here we are I am back and happy to be here. I wanted to do a fun post for you guys since I haven’t done on in so long. I know all of you watched the Super Bowl or at least the half time show. Lady Gaga performed and she came out with a strong makeup look. I wanted to recreate this mainly because it was requested on my Instagram, but also because it is unique and fun.
So I went ahead and recreated it for you but I added my little twist to it. Instead of Red Gems I did pink, also I didn’t add the netting like she had. Her whole eye , gem & Black outline was actually a sticker. Because I did mine by hand I left out the netting through out the gems. Either way hers looked gorgeous and I think I did it justice. So I have a full video tutorial for you below, also I shared my edited Instagram Ready Pictures and I would love for you to vote in the comments and tell me which of all these pictures in this post you love best!

Before you go COMMENT below and tell me which pictures do you like best from this post?
Thank you guys, and Im so excited to be back! I have lots of tutorials,reviews, hauls & more coming soon!
So I am super excited, just like all of you, for the Divergent movie! When I heard that Sephora released a LIMITED EDITION Divergent Makeup Kit I was too excited and I purchased it right away. I have had it for a little over a week now and I am ready to tell you what I think, Show you swatches & Show you how to do this Dauntless Smokey eye look I created. So if you want to get it for yourself then just click here. (If it is out of stock then check your local sephora near you , or wait for it to come in stock again!)
* I was not paid or asked to do this, I just am really excited and want all of you Divergent Fans to know about this!
If you want to see swatches, my thoughts & How to do a smokey eye using this kit then click below.
So this kit cost me $59.50 , It comes with three eye palettes, a face palette, four lip glosses and a double ended brush.
It even Comes with little cards that help you create a Dauntless, Erudite, or Abnegation Day & Night look. First off the Packaging is great it is a strong card board material that doesn’t give at all! Not only that but I know that us girls want cute packaging on our stuff and this has it! So lets see what all this stuff looks like..
The Cheek Palette is called the Divergent Cheek Palette. It comes with a blowy coral blush, a matte rose blush , a champagne highlight & a matte warm bronzer. All these are so creamy and pigmented. They feel nice and I was really impressed with how nice they wear on the face as well. I love that It has a matte and a Glowy/shimmer blush.
The Three eye palettes are the Abnegation palette,Erudite palette, and Dauntless palette. All these shadows except for the transformer shades are really pigmented they feel silky soft and the color pay off is amazing. I find myself being super gentle when I dip my brush in and when I apply it . These feel to me like Urban decay quality shadows, they are worth every bit of the money I spent on this kit. If you have a chance to go to sephora and swatch them , they are seriously really good quality. The transformer shades are the first eyeshadow shades in each palette. With exception to the Dauntless palette transformer shade, they are not pigmented. They are used to add shimmer but no color. If you use them wet though they do add a great highlight to your look and it picks up a lot better. ( They are made to be used wet)
Last are the four lip glosses and double ended brush.
The brush is really soft and I feel like it does a great job blending . It feels like a higher end blush so I was pleased with it. The only thing is that because it is double ended I have to store it horizontal if you don’t like to do that then you won’t like this brush.
The glosses are sheer with a subtle tint of color , as you can see on my arm. They feel really soft and silk , not stick or tacky. I personally don’t like sticky gloss and I was really happy to see that these are not that way. These smell minty but they don’t tingle, so they are not plumping or anything like that. The shade from top to bottom are: Fear not, Natural Virtue, Supreme Ritual , and Temptations Choice.
So this is the look I came up with , this is actually what I picture a Dauntless woman to look like when I read the book. It is a very smokey eye with some mahogany color in it as well. This is super easy to recreate !
add a black base close to the lashes and blend onto the lid.
Apply Radiant Initiation (Erudite Palette) into the crease as a transition shade and blend really well.
Put Serene Vanilla (Dauntless Palette) underneath the brow for a matte highlight.
Apply Burnt Mahogany (Erudite palette) All over the lid and up towards the crease but not passed it. blend with some of the Radiant initiation shade and a blending brush. Also blend it in the lower lashes.
apply Dauntless Ink (Dauntless palette) Very close to the lash line and smoke it out so that it looks like there is an easy transition from the mahogany to the black.
Apply Choose wet in the inner corner of the tear duct for a glowing effect.
Apply a liquid eyeliner to the upper lashes , with a subtle wing.
Apply a black pencil in-between upper lashes and tight line.
apply a skin tone liner on the waterline.
Apply mascara and you are good to go.
For the Face I applied the bronzer as a contour shade , I used the highlighter on my cheek bones for a highlight , and I used Misty rose on the apples of my cheeks.
For my hair I curled my hair with a 1 ½ inch curling wand then I teased the root of my crown area. Next I made three twists and I pinned them with bobby pins. Super easy hairstyle again a perfect Dauntless hair look. Its easy to do but yet it looks fierce.
Thanks you guys for taking the time to support me and to check out all my posts and videos! I hope you guys enjoyed this and let me know if you have seen the movie yet and what you think!?
Till Next time,
Remember, Beauty Comes From Within so let yours SHINE!
