I decided to start a new beauty regiment using castor oil and coconut oil on my face each night. Castor oil is highly beneficial for a long list of things and is suppose to be especially great for your skin and hair, you can read more about it here. I've started to apply it to my eyelashes and eyebrows in hopes of growing them out. I hate to admit it, but I was a huge over plucker in high school..it's a wonder I still have eyebrows left. I look back at #tbt pictures and have no clue what I was thinking. I feel like that is something I should include in my letter to a younger self..."15 year old self, DO NOT pluck your eyebrows...20 years from now thick luscious brows will be much more desired." I've also been applying the coconut oil to my face for hydration and wrinkle prevention. My skin is normally dry and I had applied this before in the past, but never really stuck to it. If you follow me on twitter, I tweeted about this new regime and had a few respond that they are currently trying the same or have tried it in the past with good results. I'll be sure to put together a full post about the pros/cons of everything after trying it out for a full month.
Who else is watching the People vs OJ Simpson show??? O-M-G addicted!! Honestly, I don't remember much of the trial since I was young when it all took place, but I do most definitely remember the bronco chase..since it was on every channel for multiple hours. I decided to check out the show after all the talk about it on RHOBH when Kathryn got added to the cast. I had no idea she and Faye were a part of the murder case. It's all so intriguing to me, can't wait to keep watching and see it all unfold.
Have any of y'all seen this snapchat trick for adding more lines of text? My mind is blown!! I always hate having to shorten what I want to say to just 1 line with only 31 characters. Also, speaking of snapchat, these pictures/videos of all those crazy filters on pets is hilarious and definitely had me lol'ing and making me want to try it out on Beau. ps: follow me on snapchat: @belleinthecity
So an update on my fiddle leaf fig...so far so good, it even has a few new leaves getting ready to bloom. I have to say I was really hesitate and afraid I was going to kill the poor thing after hearing horror stories of other's not making it or getting nasty spots on the leaves. I most definitely do not have a green thumb, but I am so proud that I haven't killed it. I was on the hunt for a basket and picked up this woven one for it at target and it is the perfect size. Fingers crossed Frank (yes, I named it, lol) keeps doing good!!
Okay so the itch to cut my hair short again has started. I feel like I go through this phase at least once or twice each year. This time I blame Carrie Underwood's gorgeous locks at the Grammy's..I mean she can do no wrong, seriously flawless. I've had long hair for as long as I can remember, until a few years ago when I decided to go shorter (here). For reference this is my length now and I've been pinning away for some inspiration for a shorter do. I don't think I'll go as short as before, but maybe a medium to long bob..here, here + here are few of my favorite pins. What do y'all think?
What are you loving this week? xo, S
