I wrote an article for Go Banking Rates telling you how to get the BEST at home spa and nail treatments!
Let’s face it: We all need a trip to the day spa every once in a while, but with services ranging upwards of $50, saving money at the spa isn’t really an option. Considering American women spend over $7 billion a year on beauty treatments and nail care, sometimes our skin is screaming for a good facial, but our wallets are begging for some relief.
This is where your DIY beauty savvy comes in handy. The idea of saving vs. spending on style transcends more than just your wardrobe; it should also apply to your beauty regime. You can save hundreds of dollars a year just by opting to turn your home into a DIY at-home day spa as opposed to going to the spa or salon.
So light those candles, put on those robes and don’t you dare touch that credit card. Here are some of the best, most affordable DIY at-home spa treatments that will have you saving money while looking good in no time.
Im sure you have all been hearing the word KONY over the past few days. I feel like everyone is aware but may not know the real issue at hand. Basically Kony is a modern day African Hilter stealing children and making them kill their parents and mutilate other kids faces, please watch this video, it will educate you the best as possible on the subject! WATCH and share this video with as many people as you can to spread awareness!
“The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution - weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way they could get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.”
I teamed up with Cut Out And Keep to have you guys submit outfits you made and I will chose winners and do an editorial in YOUR clothing you made for me! How cool right? Here's how to enter!
Inspired by 50's LA decor! Love the modern take on it. I have always loved palm trees and seashell's since I was a little girl. They mean sunshine, beaches and carefree island living. My place on the east and west coast is decked out with seashells, beaded curtains, flamingo lights, cactus, palm inspired everything and shell chandeliers.... looking to buy a surfboard this summer. The perfect living room decoration next to my vintage skatedecks!
Im a huge advocate against bulling and talking down on other people. Growing up I was always someone who did everything my way. I was the girl who rode skateboards with the boys and had purple leopard jumpsuits on with Mickey Mouse shoes. I wasn't an outcast by anymeans, everyone knew my name but it wasn't always a positive thing. I delt with the "wanna be super popular" people ALWAYS talking trash and spreading rumors (not much has changed). As a kid you just take that as "im not good enough, why don't they like me, what am I doing wrong."
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it doesn't get much better. The reason why is because the people who sit around and talk trash on others honestly sincerely HATE themself. They are miserable, self loathing, depressed, INSECURE souls. There will always be these kinda people in life. I know you may be asking how I know this, but trust me I do. At one point in my life I was that person. I was so sad and unhappy and would talk trash on people who were more successful, more attractive, and everything I wannted to be. Thankfully I eventually found myself and was enlightened enough to leave that very short lived horrible side of me along the road. Do not be that person. Being a powerful, strong, independent, intelligent and succesful person, it is SO much more attractive. I don't care what anyone says, no plastic surgery, boob job and stripper clothing will EVER compare. Those things all scream I hate myself someone please tell me im pretty because my insides are horrific and I need to balance it out somehow. If you love yourself others will love you too. Im not against enhancing beauty by wearing sexy clothing or getting work done, im against the reason behind doing it most of the time. If your secure and love yourself and treat people with respect, then by all means go full force into it! My experiance with these things first hand has shown that this normally is not the case.
I still get picked on until this day on a daily basis. I chose to ignore it. The more successful I get the worse it seems. It comes with the territory, confidence is kryptonite to the insecure. There are hundreds of rumors about me out there that are so far from any truth its laughable. The only common thread is they all come from the same type of person. I can pick them out in a crowd within seconds. They are the ones trying to get the wrong type of attention at all time from anyone who will pay it.
Moral of the story is classy, secure and powerful will ALWAYS be more attractive than the trashy, insecure, and weak. Pick whatever team you wish to be on cause the choice is yours.
Docmartens all day everyday. I need to do a gallery dedicated to all the amazing styles. They are my running errands, airport, lazy day go to shoes always!
Sorry for my lack of personal updates. Life has been really busy latley and full of the good and the bads.I haven't been myself latley been feeling really off. Life is funny like that, you can be in a room full of hundreds of people and feel so alone at the same time. At the end of the day all we as humans crave and want is companionship and love. When we feel as if we don't have these things we slowly start to fall apart. I never understood why, we are like dogs.. pack animals. We feed off other human interactions and attention. Take this all away and your a sinking stone. Not many people stick around for the long haul. When your at your ups everyone wants a peice of you, when your on your downs everyone can't be found. Paradise isn't so sparkly and bright anymore, more like a dull hurricane. Sometimes all you want is someone to hug you and genuinely care about you for who you are.
In better news I got the green light to start designing the Coco and Tokyolux Summer 2013 collections with zero budget. That is the most amazing feeling since I started everything out of pocket rubbing pennies together to make ends meet. I can finally design the clothing I have always dreamed of! I did a bit of superficial meditation today... aka impulse shopping!
I had to get a wisdom tooth removed from my lower jaw bone yesterday. Lot's of drilling, cutting and pulling. My jaw is bruised in rather pretty purple and yellow rainbow shades and I haven't even taken an Advil. Im like immune to pain, so strange to me. It's almost like when you go through so much in life it makes everything that should be a big deal seem as if it's nothing.
Im going to spend my Saturday night reading my overflowing stack of magazines, pulling looks for an editorial and eating take out in bed!
PS I got instagram add me! username akitching
