With all of the harmful chemicals put in most beauty products these days, how do you know what’s best for your body and skin? On the other end, why would you want to spend days, weeks or months trying out multiple skincare products that could be harmful to begin with? I was one of those girls that waited way too long to get into a good skincare regimen until recently. Leading up to this point, there was much trial and error figuring out what worked best for my skin. This entire post is dedicated to sharing FOUR of my favorite skincare products by TULA and why they work for most.

{Oh, Sheet! Which Face Mask to Choose?}

DTKAustin talks all about her favorite sheet masks and which brands and formulas are better for specific types of skin. Click for more information and where to shop!

Living in the era of the sheet mask, how do you know which is right and beneficial for your skin? I’ve rounded up my favorite picks for all skin types that have been my personal favorites for the past year. Surprisingly enough, I JUST started using sheet masks about 6 months ago and have completely fallen in love. They are so easy to throw on and lounge around or even get work done around the house while still getting an amazing facial. I’ve tested out hundreds at this point and have only found a handful that I’ve actually seen great results with.

{Laser/Ultrasonic Liposuction with Novopelle}

DTKAustin shares her experience with ultrasonic laser liposuction from Novopelle. Click for an amazing video on the entire process!

By now, most of you are very aware that I had major shoulder surgery in January of this year. With that came the realization that I wouldn’t be able to work out for months… Even after a little over 2 months, I’m still not cleared to work out. I tried to go for a run last weekend and made it a mile and was majorly paying for it over the next week. So I’m back to doing minimal walking and trying to eat healthy. Who knew my body would literally start packing on the pounds in places I never saw cellulite… Talk about depressing. Since I’m not able to do much to get in shape I reached out to Novopelle about their Novo Lipo, or Ultrasonic Lipo to see if they could help with some minimal fat reduction in areas that just wouldn’t get toned.

{T3 Twirl 360 How-To}

Hey everyone!! I wanted to share a quick tutorial with everyone on how to use the new T3 Twirl 360! As most of you know, I don’t ever curl my hair but fell in love with this curler that I had to test it out and give everyone a quick how-to! I’ve also never used an iron that literally spins itself! This curling iron utilizes gyroscopic digital technology to detect the motion of your hand, and automatically propel the barrel in the desired direction. The application of the technology, typically used in space exploration, is a first for the hair tools category. Pretty awesome, if you ask me! Keep an eye out for a Youtube tutorial soon! For now, you get photos! Here is a quick start guide for those of you who have never used this curler before. There will be photos but if you’re in a hurry and want to test the curler out without photos, then this should be helpful!

{The New Do}

By now, most of y’all know I got another itch to chop my long locks off and actually went through with it this time. A whopping 9″ was cut off, plus a little more in the back! Every time I would head to the salon for my very predictable cut and color, I would always rave about wanting to cut my hair shorter. NOT short, but shorter! And overtime, I would chicken out and just do a quick trim. Continue Reading
